Just like we did on our Jamaican honeymoon, we splurged on professional photos at the beach. It was a little pricey considering that we only ended up with a small handful of pictures, but absolutely worth it! I think that professional photos are so important– after all, most people hire a photographer for their annual Christmas card photos, so why not do the same for a once-in-a-lifetime vacation?
These photos aren’t perfect. Andrew and I were both incredibly sunburned on this particular day. I hate the swimsuit that I was wearing and think my sundress shows off too much cleavage. Some of the photos are a little over-edited to my liking. The perfectionist in me cringes because of these minor things, but I know that I would be kicking myself even more if we didn’t have them to look back on.
I say all this to say: take the photos. Whether you choose to hire a professional as we did, do DIY photos with a tripod, or ask a stranger to snap a quick picture, it is so worth having a photo with everyone in it!
