When you’re getting married abroad, knowledge is power as you’re stepping slightly into the unknown! So, wouldn’t it be great to get some expert advice and helpful hints from knowledgable peeps within the wedding industry? This is especially true when it comes to booking vendors for your destination wedding.
Bohemian weddings are on hand today with guidance on things to consider along with some top tips on how to choose a destination wedding photographer for your worldwide wedding….
Put simply, destination weddings are beautiful…..there are so many pluses in having a ceremony in another country it would be difficult to acknowledge them all. You virtually get to pick your weather and location, from sunny beaches to Italian vineyards the choice really is yours. However planning a wedding in your ideal location, with the details you have in mind in another country can take some time and effort.
There is much to be done in terms of researching and contacting vendors so that you can really have your day the way you want it. The perfect location you have been dreaming about and spent hours researching is at least a plane ride away so you can’t necessarily meet all of the vendors involved face to face, so it is great that blogs such as You Mean The World To Me exist as it bridges the gap between you and inspirational trusted vendors.
Finding the right wedding photographer is actually pretty simple and choosing a destination photographer doesn’t have to be difficult either. Here’s our guide on how to choose a destination wedding photographer for your worldwide wedding….
First of all know that you have options. These options will vary dependant on two main factors that every couple getting married should consider before seeking out any vendors. Firstly how important your wedding photos are to you and secondly budget, preferably in that order. Everyone is different and that it is a good thing! So for me or anyone else to say that you should spend a certain percentage of your budget on a photographer is impossible. We don’t know what aspects are most important to you or what your budget is or your plan for the day.
This is the hard part….it is down to you as a couple to work out your budget and what elements are most important to you. Luckily there are options to suit all budgets so once you have had a real hard think about all aspects of your wedding, the allocated budget and what you feel is most important you can then start your search.

California wedding photographer:
You Mean The World To Me
Real bride review:
“Sammy and Natalia are a sweet couple who were wonderful to work with.”
“They provided the most thorough and prompt responses to our inquiries prior to the big day. This was helpful because they lived so far from us (they are based in California), and we were unable to meet up before our destination wedding in Mexico.”
We get to see what life is like through a lens as we chat with the incredibly talented Caroline from BlueCicada Photography, a destination wedding photographer based in Kuala Lumpur.
Today’s interview gives an insight into the dreamy job of a destination wedding photographer and Caroline shares her top tips with us on the increasingly popular trend of engagement shoots, finding the right wedding photographer and making your wedding day memorable.
YMTWTM: How did you get started as a photographer?
- Caroline: “I have always been taking photos. A lot! I used a point and shoot camera at first and would play in post processing. I got my first DSLR about five years ago and was shooting in automatic. I very quickly disliked the look that was inflicted by the pop up flash and really wanted to learn more about how to make images from scratch. I attended a course with a professional photographer in Dubai and from there I studied online and practiced a lot. I still do and still learn every day.”
YMTWTM: How would you describe your photography style?
- Caroline: “I like to think that my French-ness is in my photographs – something stylish, classy and timeless. My ultimate photographer idol is Robert Doisneau and what I admire about him mostly is this ability he had, this magic I should say, to capture the special glances between people and compose his photos so well. What’s timeless is the emotions that people feel, the way they look at each other. This is what I see when I have my camera in my hands. I much prefer to create natural looks for my images, I want people to look at their images and say: ‘That’s so me, you have captured us exactly how we are.’ If someone says that to me, I know I have done a good job.”
