Episode 59: Talk About Destination Photography with Amy Anaiz

In this episode, I’m chatting it up with professional wedding photographer Amy Anaiz about the complexity of destination photography during a time when we can’t really travel. Amy shares some true “must do’s” on how to protect yourself, your clients, and the people around you, especially when travel is on the table. We talk about whether or not you should book now, creating back-up plans, fine-tuning your contracts, and handling it all on social media.

If you’re looking for insight on destination or out-of-state weddings right now or you’re just interested in how others in the industry are getting through this year, you won’t want to miss this one. Grab your coffee, grab your tea, and let’s talk it out.

Talk with Renee Dalo guest, Amy AnaizAbout Amy Anaiz

Amy Anaiz is a New York City based intimate editorial wedding and portrait photographer. Her professional journey began as a talent agent for New York City’s top still-life and beauty photographers where she learned the ins-and-outs of advertising and commercial photography and was surrounded by beautiful images on a daily basis. While representing these top talent photographers, she masterfully integrated this knowledge and experience into her own business and refined her skills as a photographer. 

Her work has been featured in the NY Times, Vogue, Brides, Inside Weddings, Huffington Post, NY Weddings, VH1, E!, HBO, TLC, Essence, and Grace Ormonde. She’s keen on creating beautiful, joyous, and heartfelt imagery that tells a story. Her style is focused on connecting with her subjects and capturing the emotion and personality of everyone she works with while using beautiful, flattering light, paying close attention to detail, and ensuring the images are clean. She enjoys creating portraits of couples that have a visual impact because your eyes are drawn to their deep expressions and deliberate placement — similar to what you see in magazines. She loves to travel and live life by Paolo Coelho’s words: “It’s the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting!”

This Week’s Sponsor: Honeybook

Today’s episode is brought to you by our friends at Honeybook. I’ve been using Honeybook for my contracts and payments for literally years, and I couldn’t love it more. My clients sign their contracts quickly and their payment plans are never late. For real. Look, 2020 is coming to a close (finally), and while we’re all getting ready for 2021, you’re going to need to make sure your business is prepared. I’m so much more organized because of Honeybook, and I know you can be too.

To share the love, I’ve partnered with them so you can join at just $1 a month for your first 8 months. You’re never going to get into Honeybook for less than that. This deal is only good until November 30, so don’t sleep on it! Go to for all the details.
