Kristin and Scott chose the talented Eric Kelley to shoot these special photos. We love how the couple embraced the environment’s bright hues and casual style (that coral maxi dress is amazing).

Our 3 top tips for destination engagement shoots:

1. Find a photographer that both of you are comfortable with. Whether he/she is traveling with you, or you’re meeting them there, it’s worth it to be picky here — your pictures will definitely reflect how much fun (or lack thereof) you were having that day.

2. Make sure either you or the photographer are familiar with possible locations at your destination. If your photographer is a local, make sure you tell him/her what you’re looking to get out of this shoot. If your photographer is traveling with you, do your research ahead of time and map out locations that you’ll want to visit/shoot at in advance.

3. Check the weather and plan accordingly. Weather is an issue for any engagement shoot, but if you’re doing this on vacation, you’ll want to be extra careful. Have backup indoor locations on your list, and plenty of weather-friendly wardrobe options.
