Destination Wedding Photography
If you’re planning on a destination wedding, then its certainly worth considering a destination wedding photographer and it’s not as outrageous as it might sound at first.
I’ve packed my passport for a number of weddings across some beautiful locations for brides and grooms that want to guarantee that they will get high quality imagery and a gorgeous collection of photographs to capture their special day. After all, so much time and effort goes into planning the perfect destination wedding, why would you not want to capture the day as a perfect memory.
Most couples choose a destination wedding photographer to ensure that the vision of their wedding and the style of photography they desire will be well represented, or they simply fall in love with the style of one photographer and want those images of their day. Either way you’re probably looking for a well established, well regarded and experienced photographer to capture such an important time in your lives.
Planning your Destination Wedding Photography
I spend a lot of time going through the planning of the day for destination weddings, checking the light at different times of the day and consulting with the bride and groom on the timing plans to make sure we make the most of the fabulous vistas and backdrops that many destination wedding venues offer.
Fresh Perspective - Get The Most From Your Venue
A good destination wedding photographer won’t need to see the venue before hand or even to have shot there before (in fact local venue photographers can often go into auto-pilot), I’m used to travelling wherever I need to be and working in new locations, I usually arrive one day before and will do all my necessary recce work then.
My approach is very much to capture the day from a fresh perspective, seeing the things you fell in love with about the venue and not the set locations and poses the venue photographer runs through.
Multi Day Coverage For Your Wedding Day
One of the huge benefits of bringing your own photographer is having your very own photographer with you for the duration of your stay. This means you can tell the entire story of your wedding, from the day before to the day after, taking full advantage of your destination wedding location.
Understanding Each Other & Get Better Photographs
Great photographs come from great connections and getting to know your photographer is key to getting great shots. If you’re comfortable in your photographers company, it stands to reason that you’re going to be more relaxed, and in turn create better photographs together. Furthermore, you want your wedding photographer to get to know your family, understand the relationships between family members and capture those special moments that may not be immediately obvious, but are pivotal to the emotions of a wedding day. You’re going to spend a lot of time with your wedding photographer so it is important they know you, you know them and you get on together.

Choosing a destination wedding photographer is not such an absurd idea. Many brides and grooms who fall in love with a photographic style of a particular photographer or want to guarantee they will get a gorgeous collection of wedding day images often choose a photographer from the UK to capture their day.
