bermuda wedding videographer and photographer


Updated: Oct 9, 2020

It is easy to forget to have your family photos taken. With the many busy schedules and endless to-do lists, it is very understandable. In fact, you could continuously postpone this until you forget why it was necessary in the first place.

It would be best if you did not let that happen to you. You see, family photos are of great significance. The years are moving quite quickly. One day you could wake up and discover that the kids are all grown up. Capturing as many moments as you can now with a photo is the best course of action. These are, after all, priceless moments that you cannot get back.

There are many uses for your family photos taken during the holidays. You could use them in your Christmas cards to wish your close and extended family well. You could also have them lined up as portraits, and they make for great office photos too. They’re an excellent timeline of your family growing up and can hold the memories for many years to come. Here are some more reasons I would love to share with you:

For the Memories

Our past experiences are what have made us into who we now are. Photos can touch us emotionally too. I have seen photos restore family bonds. The truth is that everyone is growing and changing. Marriage is coming; births occur and even loved ones pass away. Photographs can capture these moments and create a timeline of them. You deserve to have these crucial milestones documented for your memories.

For Future Generations

If there’s one time that old photo albums come out, it is during the holidays. It is at these times that old memories come flooding out as people recount their stories. You may not care so much about these pictures now, but your generation will. Picture the look on your grandchildren and great grandchildren’s faces as they see photos of you. These are part of the things they will remember you by.

Document Growth

Honestly, kids grow faster these days. With family photos, you can document those changes. I especially love the trend of before and after photos that have been popular on social media lately. You can also use these pictures to look back on past trends and styles. You’ll certainly crack a smile or two as you remember.

You Never Know When It’ll Be Your Last Chance

Life can be short and unpredictable. If there’s one year when we’ve learned that in 2020. Take advantage of the time that you have with your loved ones now. We don’t pray for them, but unexpected things happen all the time.

High-Quality Photos to Last a Lifetime

You deserve to have more than selfies and Snapchat images to document your family. Professional pictures bring a whole new level of quality and value to your memories. You may look cool with all those filters, but it is not the same as having a professional do it, and you know this.

A professional photographer comes with experience and years of training, which will show in the images that you get for your family photo. They’ll certainly know a lot more about posing, lighting, and editing than Wiki-How can tell you (wink).

If you need a professional photographer for your family portrait in Bermuda, you should contact me. I love to capture memories in artistic and unique ways. Your family members who get your Christmas cards will be raving all about it. What do you say?

Big weddings can be expensive and feel impersonal. It’s the reason why couples choose to go for an intimate wedding, which is often less costly. An intimate wedding is one with less than 50 guests, and in this era of the pandemic has been the go-to for many couples. Whether you are choosing to have an intimate wedding because of the pandemic or looking to reduce your wedding spending, here are some great benefits that come with having an intimate wedding.

You’ll Spend Less

One of the things that can quickly ramp up the price of a wedding is having a big guest list. Most of your wedding spending boils down to per head costs so the fewer your guests, the lesser you’ll have to spend. Having an intimate wedding is an efficient way to save too. If you’re on a tight budget, you won’t spend too much, or you can push the extra savings from your wedding to some other project.

They’re Easier to Plan

Intimate weddings can be effortless to plan. You’ll have way fewer people to consider when making decisions, and you can often get away with not strictly following traditional wedding rules too. This gives you more time to enjoy, as an engaged couple, and your relationship could definitely do without the added stress.

They’re of Higher Quality

When you decide to have an intimate wedding, one of the advantages is that you could have an event of higher quality. You can spend more money on an exceptional wedding menu, great entertainment and lots more. The result is that you and your guests will have a more fun and memorable time.

More Intimacy

An intimate wedding will allow you to spend as much time with your guests as you want. You can personally say your thanks to each person at your wedding and enjoy every moment with them. You can’t do this with big weddings because, with the number of people attending, it would take forever!

You Have More Wedding Venue Choices

Wedding venues that can accommodate a large number of people are often few. They can also be a bit more costly. With a reduced guest list, a lot more venues become open to you. You can choose from options like restaurants, bars, garden venues, etc.

You Can Easily Go DIY With Your Wedding Favors

You'll get even more savings this way. You can quickly complete a DIY project which would be more meaningful and personalized. Imagine trying to do the same for a wedding of over 200+ people (Shudders)!

You Can Spend More on Your Honeymoon

Last but not least, having an intimate wedding means saving more money, which can go towards your dream honeymoon. You can choose a luxury island, a far of destination, or a 5-star hotel with special packages for couples. If you ask me, this is a great way to start your married life together.

When it comes to elopements, Bermuda is full of many possibilities. This is especially advantageous now that having small weddings are healthier due to the pandemic. If you’re thinking of coming to Bermuda to have your elopement, you’re not alone. It’s a decision that could be better for everyone in the long run.

Elopements don’t necessarily need more than 4 or 5 people. Most times, it’s just the couple, their officiant, and their photographer. You’ll be able to observe social distancing in a condition like this easily. If you’re planning to come to Bermuda for your elopement wedding, here are six tips from me here at MAETOG that you might find useful. So, grab your favorite seat, and let’s talk about elopements.

Tip 1: Choose A Venue

The place where you choose to hold your elopement is essential. You can avoid doing most of the things that you need to do for a traditional wedding during your elopement wedding, but a venue is not one of them. Bermuda has lots of options for you when it comes to elopement wedding venues. Just remember to choose a place that you love because you’ll be seeing it in your wedding photos forever.

Tip 2: Book A Photographer (Hopefully Me)

You may not feel like being too outrageous when it comes to your elopement wedding, but a photographer is one vendor you’ll definitely need. You’ll want to have memories of the day you said “I do” to the love of your life, and they’ll provide you something to share with your loved ones who were not present.

Tip 3: Hire an Officiant

For your marriage to be legal, you’re going to need an officiant. Your officiant can help make your small ceremony that much more special, and they could also help with the licensing of your marriage. They’ll have tips on what paperwork you need to file and how much time you’ll need to wait, so be sure to contact them early enough.

Tip 4: Create an Elopement Timeline

Surprisingly, timing is also of the essence when you have an elopement wedding. Creating a timeline could prove to be very helpful. With it, you’ll be able to maximize your hours and have a Bermuda elopement wedding that is special to you.

Tip 5: Have A Reveal Plan

You’ll eventually have to let your loved ones know that you’ve had your wedding if you don’t tell them from the start. The majority of your family will understand, especially with this pandemic, and wish you well. The pictures from your wedding can come in handy when you’re making your announcement.

Tip 6: You Can Still Celebrate with Family

I’ve known couples to have their elopement and then head back to a small reception with those closest to them. Just because you’re choosing to have an elopement wedding in Bermuda does not mean that you can’t celebrate with your family. You can have a simple backyard barbecue, for instance, or if you’re moving into a new home, use your house warming as an opportunity to brings everyone together and celebrate.

If you need a talented and artistic photographer to cover your elopement wedding in Bermuda, look no further. I would love to capture beautiful and memorable images of the special moments at your wedding. I’d love to hear from you. Contact me today!
