I’m so excited to finally share this post with y’all! While Colton and I were on our honeymoon in Galveston in May, we did a honeymoon photoshoot on the beach. A honeymoon photoshoot isn’t something I hear a lot about in the wedding world, so I thought, “why not?”
As soon as we decided on the honeymoon destination and booked our hotel, I started searching for a photographer that would fit my aesthetic and price range. A few Google and Facebook searches later, I found I Love Us Photography. Based in Galveston, this husband and wife team are nurses, but channel their passion for photography into their side business. Julian was our photographer for the evening and he could not have been more amazing! He made us both feel at ease during the shoot and even suggested a small, romantic restaurant to us, Porch Cafe, where we ate on the final night of the honeymoon. He was right: it was so good!
We received our photos within a month and y’all… they’re so perfect! I’m so glad we made room in our honeymoon timeline and budget for this. Below are a few of our favorites along with three reasons why you should do a honeymoon photoshoot.
I wore: Hello Molly romper
The first and main reason I booked a photoshoot while on our honeymoon was so that we would have quality photos of ourselves as a married couple in a non-wedding setting. This was our first vacation as a married couple, after all! I didn’t want our only photos together on the honeymoon to just be selfies or iPhone photos taken by bystanders. By booking a professional photographer, we were able to have a range of beautiful, high-quality photos to frame and treasure for years.
Be In The Moment
We also wanted be present in every moment of our honeymoon without worrying about taking photos of ourselves to frame later. As a blogger, I’m constantly looking for Instagram worthy photo opps. But I wanted my honeymoon to be a true vacation without the worry of getting the perfect shots of us. Our session took one hour on Wednesday night, then we were free for dinner and a long walk on the beach after.
