Your honeymoon is a once in a lifetime vacation, so fill your photo album with pictures that tell the story of your first getaway as husband and wife. Here are 4 tips for taking the best honeymoon (or any vacation) photos, and no you don’t have to be a professional or own thousands of dollars in equipment!
1. Establish the scene.
These images set the stage for your story to unfold. You’ll not only want to capture the resort and your honeymoon digs but, also the local scenery. And definitely don’t forget to capture all the breathtaking views, unforgettable sunsets, and beautiful landscapes these are the backdrop of your honeymoon story.
2. It’s all in the details.
Create a window into your experience by capturing all of the smallest details like, pictures of the food you ate, souvenirs you purchased, and all of the other “little” things throughout the day. This approach will also bring balance to your finished photo album.
3. Seize the moment.
Yes, we all enjoy taking our fair share of cheezy posed photographs and postcard pictures. Try capturing more random, candid moments like relaxing poolside with a good book or enjoying a good laugh! I promise these are the pictures that you’ll cherish for a lifetime.
4. Edit, Organize & Share
Spending a little time adjusting lighting, cropping, and other basic editing can dramatically improve your photographs. There are great free or cheap photo editing websites and apps available, with some you can even apply filters.
Hopefully with these tips and a little advance planning you can capture all of those perfect shots to tell your honeymoon story! If you’d like a little photo inspiration, check out our board on Pinterest!
