Brad Walters is an internationally acclaimed wedding photographer traveling to popular locations like the island of Aruba shooting his client's destination weddings.


Destination weddings on Aruba would certainly be unique, even for a destination wedding. Unlike most other Caribbean islands, it has a dry and arid climate and visitors can usually expect dry, warm, and pleasant weather. The average (year round) temperature in Aruba is 82°, with an average annual rainfall of around 16.1”. Maybe Aruba’s most important weather related fact relating to brides and their dresses/hair/makeup and their weddings, is that the average humidity in Aruba is 78%. Aruba is one of the best choices for a destination wedding you'll find if you have your heart set on an island destination wedding. Even though Aruba’s humidity levels are already relatively low (for an island), the trade winds almost continually blow across the island, adding to its reputation as having a comfortable climate for destination weddings. Active destination wedding photographers seek out islands for destination weddings such as Aruba for their mild climate. Aruba is also outside of the hurricane belt, which is certainly a plus when planning an Aruba destination wedding during hurricane season.

Aruba has fast become a favorite destination for cruise ships of late, seeing an increase of over fifty percent in cruise passengers from past years. Cruise lines that frequent Aruba include the Italian Line, Cunard, Holland America Line, Costa Line, Sitmar Cruises, Princess Cruises, Royal Caribbean Cruise Line, Chandris Line, Sun Line, Royal Cruise Line, Majestic Cruise Line, and the Russian Black Sea Shipping Co. So if you haven’t decided where you’ll go for your honeymoon, a relaxing cruise might be the answer. You’ll certainly have enough cruise lines to choose from.

Aruba has become one of the most popular destination wedding venues in the world among wedding couples and destination wedding photographers alike, for it's mild weather and robust destination wedding industry. Some of the more famed resorts and hotels that serve destination weddings, and encourage non-native Aruba destination wedding photographers include the Tierra Del Sol Resort, Spa and Country Club and the Westin.

As with many destination wedding locations, there could be a number of resorts in Aruba that do not allow destination wedding photographers, so be sure to choose a resort that allows a destination wedding photographer for your Aruba wedding. Contact our studio to be sure your venue is accommodating to destination wedding photographers. Utilizing the hotel photographer as your Aruba destination wedding photographer is highly discouraged, as often these employees are not trained destination wedding photographers.

A list of commonly known resorts that cater to destination weddings, but also disallow or actually charge high fees for allowing destination wedding photographers to serve their clients, include the Sandals Resorts (all locations), Breezes (all locations), Rooms On The Beach Resorts (all locations), Couples Resorts (all locations), Starfish Resorts (all locations), Grand Lido Resorts (all locations), Rose Hall (Jamaica) and the Fern Tree Spa at Half Moon (Jamaica) (The Fern Tree is the same Company as Rose Hall).
