Location Scout: Corbin Gurkin of Corbin Gurkin Photography
Travel tidbit: I love to travel and have photographed weddings all over the world, from Thailand to France to Santa Barbara. I'm so in love, in fact, with the intimate style of a destination wedding and sharing the experience of a new location with your guests, that my husband and I were married in our own little destination wedding last year! I can't imagine a more magical style of event—it's a real treat to see your guests fall in love with your location and spark this sense of excitement about a new place.
Helpful hint: If you're taking to the road, bring a GPS from home with pre-loaded maps of your destination. I love to explore and scout a location for beautiful spots to photograph, but don't like to get lost!
Favorite wedding destination: At the moment, Paris! It's truly romantic and the city really does seem to have a pink light that makes a bride's blushing cheeks just glow in photographs. I could walk around the quiet streets of Montmartre or the Marais any day of the week, and I find endless inspiration at the flea markets. Paris is one of those locations where you have to do so little to "dress it up". The venues are already beautiful with charming furnishings and textures that it makes for a lovely location to plan an event from abroad. You can focus your attention on details such as unique lettering or signage to really bring a personalized feel to this already stunning destination.
