With so many new people coming to our blog and Facebook pages, it seems like the right time to reintroduce some of the things we do that people might not know about. Every few days I'm going to post a "Did You Know?" item as my status update to feature a different aspect of the photography business. I don't want to do it everyday to avoid spamming people.
The first one I'm going to do is Destination Weddings. I don't want to bite the hand that feeds me since local weddings are our bread and butter. Keep in mind though that many of our local weddings are in fact destination weddings for the bride and groom, lured to the area by the beauty of the Finger Lakes. However, we are more than willing to travel where ever your heart desires. I've had the pleasure of photographing weddings in Mexico City, Key West, the Jersey Shore, Philly and Boston, as well as all over New York State from New York City to the Thousand Islands and across to Niagara Falls. We've also done Trash the Dress shoots in Vegas, Sedona, AZ, Boca Raton, New York City and later this summer in New Orleans.
We have two websites for our destination weddings. The first is a subheading on our parent website at http://www.cheslerphoto.com/destinations.htm and the second is our destination exclusive website at http://www.destinationsbycheslerphotography.com/.
As with most of our business, word of mouth is king, however destination weddings rely on it way more than the rest since we are going to new places and don't have the venue as a referral source initially. We know how valuable your kind words are as a referral and we reward you for it.
