Destination Wedding Photography - sarajunephotography.com

Your all-inclusive destination wedding
photo and video team 

It's time to say goodbye to those overpriced, couldn't-care-less-about-you, resort photographers —and say HELLO to your experienced, truly all-inclusive destination wedding photographer and videographer team!

You shouldn't have to pay extra just to get ALL of your wedding photos and a complete video of your day.

We know you deserve better. We can help.

Plus, with everything else on your plate, if you have to figure out how the heck to avoid getting nickel-and-dimed by the resort for one.more.thing...

... they are often assigned to your wedding just days before, leaving you in the dark with no idea who is going to show up the morning of.

... they don't include many hours of coverage, and if you want to upgrade to full-day coverage, you better be ready to fork over a lot of cash for it.
... they take the same photos at the same locations on the resort for every couple.

... they don't get to know you, your family, or your friends.

... they really just care if you buy more photos before you leave the resort. 

It’s not like you can rewind your wedding day and do it all over again. You don't get a do-over.

- SYDNEY & SCOTT (RIVIERA MAYA)

We LOVED working with Sara and Trevor! Sara was super quick and efficient and knew just how to wrangle our bridal party to get the shots we wanted without wasting a bunch of time. She gave us sneak peeks the day after the wedding and we had our full album very soon after. We would definitely work with the Matuszaks again!

"We were impressed with how well Sara prepared, researched, & scouted out the resort, to find all the perfect areas to take the most beautiful photos. She was comfortable behind the camera, so we were comfortable getting our photos taken. It was fun, easy, relaxed, exciting.
We really liked how organized her process was. She knew where to go, the poses that would make us look best, and she was comfortable to give us direction, but also captured moments of real emotion along the way. It was a culmination of everything a bride wants to capture on her wedding day.

"We got engaged in Jamaica and Sara happened to be there celebrating her 10 year anniversary with her husband. She knew what a special time this was for us and was able to capture amazing photos so that we never forget this special moment. Sara is so personable and gets to know you as a couple to help create natural, beautiful photos that will hold a very special place in our hearts for a lifetime. "

(OCHO RIOS, JAMAICA)

"Sara made us feel at ease and natural, all while bringing alive the romance between Will & I. She even made my husband blush and giggle by telling him to whisper sweet nothings in my ear. Sara was encouraging and she made the entire experience so fun! The wind was a beast, but man did she know how to work with it for beautiful photos! With the time restraints and the weather conditions, I did not in a million years think they would turn out as beautiful as they did.

Your Investment

You could stick with the inexperienced, assembly-line resort photographer who has the personality of a snail
...but you’ll end up draining your future vacation fund to take home a limited number of mediocre photos just to have something from your wedding day.

You could ask your cousin to take video during your ceremony 
...but it’ll probably be shaky, and your video will have the sound of them breathing rather than your heartfelt vows.


You could bring a friend from home who has never done a destination wedding before 
...but they won’t know how to manage that pesky tropical rain shower that threatens to soak your bridal party during photos.

Your love story is worth it,
you can't afford NOT to hire us.

All of our couples completely customize their wedding collections.

We pour our hearts into your wedding experience with Sara June.

If you're not happy, we're not happy.

Get to know us!

I’m the owner and lead photographer here at Sara June. I’ve been photographing weddings for over 5 years but have had a love for photography since my days as a 4-H kid (over 2 decades ago), showing my portraits at our county fair and raking in the blue ribbons. I’ve been married to my hunk of a husband (oh, heyyy Trev) since 2011 and we’ve been traveling together to find the best beaches the Caribbean offers ever since.

My favorite destination weddings are those that are a bit more intimate - you know, the ones where everyone may not know each other when you all arrive but by the end of the welcome dinner, it all feels like one big happy group of friends. If you made me pick my favorite Caribbean islands, I’d for sure list Jamaica, St. Lucia, USVI, and Turks & Caicos. 

I’m totally convinced that destination weddings are the best way to get married: an entire weekend spent enjoying sandy blue waters, lush tropical gardens, surrounded by your favorite humans ever. Heck yes!

Oh hey, I’m Sara.

I’m the lead videographer here at Sara June - named after my wife who is the photography genius here (fun fact: her middle name ISN’T June). I’m also the more laid back and chill half of our duo. I prefer to sit back and capture your authentic wedding moments as they happen.

You probably wouldn’t guess that I can make a mean old fashioned (brandy, sweet) or that I am the biggest fan of couples who do a first look. Sara and I did one when we got married in 2011 and I teared up when I saw her for our first look AND when she walked down the aisle toward me… so I love filming them for our couples, too!

I joined the Sara June team officially in 2021 - prior to that I was the biggest SJP cheerleader you could ever find. Now, I get to create stunning films for couples who are married in the most beautiful of places, alongside my wife.

Hi, I’m Trevor.

We can't wait to meet you!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

01. Do you work with a second photographer?

02. Do we really need an album? 

03. Can we meet with you before we book? 

04. How long will it take to see my edited wedding photos?

05. What is the process to book you?

Yes, all of our full wedding packages include a second shooter - or, you can switch the second photographer for a videographer to capture your day in motion!


Personally, we think that if you’re going to spend thousands on wedding photography, you should protect that investment with some gorgeous printed goods. We know all too well how easy it is for memory cards and hard drives of photos to sit in drawers or boxes, waiting to be printed off, and we don’t want your wedding photos to suffer that same fate. Albums are an option to add to your custom destination wedding photography collection.

Absolutely! We're already looking forward to it! We can set up a Zoom meeting or FaceTime call when you're ready.

Turnaround time for weddings is approximately 3-4 weeks but you'll see some sneak peeks before that!



You can secure your wedding date with a signed contract and a non-refundable retainer. That retainer will be applied towards your balance. The remaining balance will be split into one or two payments due no less than a month before your big day.


Good question! We like to schedule our flights to arrive at the destination two days prior to your wedding day. This gives us a day to scout out locations for your portraits and is an extra buffer in case of travel-related delays. We reserve the day after your wedding for any additional portrait sessions you wish to have and then work on securing all of our digital files to prepare to travel back home. We will fly out two days after your wedding, unless otherwise arranged.

01. Who sets up the travel arrangements?

02. What does your travel schedule look like when you come to our destination? 

03. Can you tell me more about your travel fees?

04. Wouldn’t it be easier to hire a wedding photographer who is already located at the locations of my wedding?

What can I expect?

05. Do you include the high resolution digital files? 

Your adventure awaits!

Nope! Our wedding collections are easily customized for your budget and needs - but they're also all inclusive (meaning, we don't charge you for travel!) so you don't have to worry about us tacking on extra fees and surprising you.

Not necessarily. Typically hiring photographers from your wedding location is not only more expensive but riskier in terms of receiving your images. Past clients have decided against hiring foreign photographers for a couple of reasons. It is not only harder to coordinate with them about the details of your wedding day but also if you were to have any questions about your images, rather than having to deal with a prolonged and inconvenient correspondence, you could simply just come directly to us for assistance.

You know you'll be disappointed and let-down by the resort photographer & videographer...

it doesn't have to be that way.
