About Us

Finding a great wedding photographer is a daunting task when you are coming from out of town! Boutique Destination Weddings offers you a highly trained photographer in Naples at a getting started price.

Boutique Destination Weddings is an offshoot of two companies. Avant-Garde Images' owner Peggy Farren has the opportunity to see the best and brightest upcoming photographers through her "Understand Photography" training center. These photographers work as photography assistants to Peggy at her larger weddings and formal beach and studio portraiture.

Most of the new photographers are putting up websites without much training, without backup equipment, without insurance and licenses, most importantly, without real world experience. We see hundreds of them coming through our training center. It's a scary thing to trust your most important day to one of these photographers!

You'll interview your photographer ahead of time to make sure you are a good fit. And you'll have peace of mind to know that this photographer has been fully vetted!

Our photographers are the whole package - friendly, even tempered, professionally dressed, backup equipment, etc.... with real world experience!
