My Wedding Photography Bucket List

Most people have a bucket list, right? You know, the list of fun and adventurous things they’d like to do before they kick the bucket! As eerie as that sounds, it’s pretty cool to think about! My life bucket list includes things like go skydiving, go on a safari, meet Channing Tatum.. you know, the usual stuff. I thought it’d be fun to list my wedding photography bucket list right here on the blog! I love the idea of getting this list out of my head and putting it out into the world. It’s also nice to have a hub of dreams to look back on as the years go by. Below you’ll find places and themes I’d love to shoot (including ongoing updates with where I’ve been)! If you’re a bride and your wedding falls into any of these categories, please reach out! I’d LOVE to chat about your unique day and there could be a discount or incentive with your name on it! 🙂

On to the bucket list!

  • California
  • Florida
  • Jamaica
  • Mexico
  • Aruba (CHECK! Check out Elizabeth & Joe’s Aruba wedding! And I would love to go back!)
  • Smokey Mountains (CHECK! See Brooke & Travis’ North Carolina wedding in the mountains!)
  • The Dominican Republic
  • Costa Rica
  • The Bahamas
  • Saint Lucia
  • The Cayman Islands
  • Antigua
  • Disney World
  • Disneyland
  • Las Vegas
  • The Outer Banks, North Carolina (CHECK! Loved Kacey & BJ’s Sanctuary Vineyards wedding!)
  • New York City (I shot Darryl & Sandra’s Central Park anniversary session last year, yay!)
