Though we normally photograph weddings in Washington, DC, we are also available for international destination weddings. If you are organizing a wedding abroad, we are happy to pack our cameras and get on a plane. Before we became DC wedding photographers, we traveled the world in the U.S. Foreign Service. Thanks to those experiences, we can offer you more than just the best photography for your overseas wedding. We are familiar with matrimonial traditions from around the world and are able to adapt rapidly to new scenarios. More importantly, we speak five languages fluently and can translate (if needed) while taking wedding photos. We are committed to providing you with any service you require. If that means helping you with other wedding service providers, we are always glad to help.
This particular destination wedding took us to Hannover, Germany, which has become something of a second home for us. Though our wedding and engagement photography business is based in Washington, DC, we spend a lot of time in Germany. Anji is originally from that area, so we jump at every opportunity to be DC destination wedding photographers there.
This Indian bride and her German husband-to-be tied the knot in an intimate marriage ceremony at Kananohe Alpakahof. The latter is a Hannover alpaca farm that specializes in (unsurprisingly) “alpaca weddings.” We cannot recommend this matrimonial location highly enough if you are looking for a fun destination wedding. It will give you an experience on par with the quirkiest of DC wedding venues. Exchanging vows with some incredibly cute animals in the background is a great way to make your marriage celebrations unforgettable. It is also guaranteed to lead to you getting some fantastic wedding photography!
What makes pictures of alpaca weddings so great is not just the adorable alpacas photobombing the newlyweds. A marriage celebration in a setting like this — be it a destination wedding or a matrimonial event closer to home — is also fun. Organizing a wedding can sometimes be stressful on you. That is understandable, of course, because you naturally want your wedding to be perfect. Sometimes, however, the stress on DC brides and grooms is so much that people in your shoes do not enjoy their nuptials enough. And no Washington DC wedding photographer ever wants that to happen to their clients.
As destination DC wedding photographers, we have a lot of experience with stressed-out brides and grooms. We often find that a good laugh is a surefire way to help you keep things in perspective. And alpaca weddings are pretty hard for even the most serious of couples to get through without a smile. Because of how their faces are structured, alpacas seem to be permanently smiling. It is impossible for you and your wedding guests to look directly at one with a straight face.
That was certainly the case with this Indian bride during her destination wedding at Kananohe Alpakahof. Throughout her wedding ceremony, the alpacas in the pen behind the altar kept wandering up to see the show. Or perhaps to see if any of the wedding guests planned to feed them! Either way, the alpacas kept the entire wedding (and each DC wedding photographer) amused throughout the marriage celebration. Especially when two of them decided to “kiss” just as the newlyweds were sharing their own for a couples portrait!alpaca weddings (3), Destination wedding photographer (3), destination wedding photographers (6), Indian bride (6).
