Destination wedding photographer, Kenny Kim, combines his love for travel, culture and photography to capture memorable moments. His nationally recognized work has been featured in the most respected photography periodicals such as: Destination Weddings & Honeymoon, The Knot, Chicago Social Bride, Shutterbug, The RangeFinder Magazine and various online publications. Kenny is also the author of two books: Wedding Photographer’s Planner & Digital Wedding Photography Photo Workshop, both of which are comprehensive must-reads for any photographer looking to successfully execute a wedding day shoot. Below, he shares his workflow after he shoots a destination wedding.
“As someone who has been been shooting weddings for over 12 years now, I often get asked if I have any tips or recommendations for getting started in the travel photography industry. Many who ask this question expect me to reply back with a list of conferences and workshops to attend, what camera gear to purchase or a slew of sound business advice. Instead, I throw a curve ball at them by asking what their workflow is like after the wedding is done.
As wedding photographers, we all know shooting a wedding is only half the battle. While our obvious role is to capture all the moments throughout the couple’s special day, what everyone may not realize, is the importance of workflow behind the scenes and after the day is done to preserve and protect these moments.
