Photographer’s Top Wedding Tip | Day After Session

D+C’s Day After Session | Kauai, HI

In the process of planning an intimate wedding, there lies a hidden gem and my highest recommendation —the day after session. For the majority of my couples who exchange vows in my home state of Montana, they opt for a day after session among the majestic Glacier National Park. Contrary to what you may think, this post-wedding photoshoot isn’t just a picturesque addition to their album; it’s a cherished opportunity to bask in the tranquility of nature and savor the intimacy of their newlywed bliss.

D+C’s wedding at their Kauai Airbnb exuded intimacy and charm, as they exchanged vows amidst the lush tropical setting of the island. Opting for a day after session, the couple seized the opportunity to explore and capture the breathtaking beauty of Kauai, ensuring their love story was woven seamlessly into the fabric of the island’s landscape. Against the backdrop of cascading epic cliffs and pristine beaches, D+C’s post-wedding photoshoot immortalized their romance in the breathtaking scenery of Kauai.

As a photographer, I’ve witnessed firsthand the significance and blessings that a day after session can be. Beyond simply capturing stunning images against the backdrop of nature’s grandeur, this session serves as a sanctuary—a refuge from the pressures of the wedding day and a chance to revel in the present moment.

Opting for a day after session isn’t merely about having a set of wedding photos that showcase the grandeur of nature, though that is certainly a compelling reason in itself. It’s also about cultivating a more present, stress-free wedding experience. By dedicating a separate day to capture post-wedding photos, couples can alleviate the pressure of constantly being pulled away for pictures on their wedding day. Instead, they can focus on savoring each moment with their closest friends and family, knowing that tomorrow will be solely about the two of them.

Moreover, a day after session fosters a sense of intimacy and tranquility that may be difficult to achieve amidst the hustle and bustle of the wedding day itself. It’s a chance for couples to steal away for a few precious hours, to revel in each other’s company without the distractions of schedules and guests.

I highly recommend a day after session to all my couples, not only for the stunning photographs it produces but for the profound impact it has on their wedding experience. It’s a decision that allows them to prioritize what truly matters—their love and their commitment to each other—while creating memories that will last a lifetime.

So, to all the couples embarking on the journey of marriage whether on the Garden Island of Kauai or Big Sky Montana, consider the significance of a day after session. Embrace the opportunity to escape into nature’s embrace, to be fully present in each other’s presence, and to capture the beauty of your love amidst the grandeur of one of nature’s greatest wonders. Trust me; you won’t regret it.
