Destination Wedding Photography FAQs

What are Destination Wedding Photography Fees and Prices?
Our destination wedding photography packages are the same as our regular wedding photography packages. The only additional costs that our clients would be responsible for are as follows:

1) Airfare

2) Baggage fees

3) Hotel accommodations (Ideally in the same hotel as the events. Typically, 2 nights minimum, but varies by event)

4) Rental car (typically 3 days, depending on the length of the event)

5) Vendor meals for the day of the event(s)

6) Per Diem: $60/day per photographer for meals on travel days and days not covering events

How many people do we need to fly out?
Depending on your package, timeline, guest count, and program, we would need you to fly out up to 3 people per team (photo and cinema). In addition, we would like to depart for the destination a day in advance. The reason for this is that we would like to have plenty of time to scout out your wedding venue as well as ensure that we will be on time to the location on the day of your wedding.  As for the departing flight, we typically have the tickets booked for the day after your last event, preferably at a later time.

Do I need to book the flights?
If you’d like to use your travel miles/rewards and book those flights on your own, we would just like to ask that you send us the flight information ahead of time just so that we may approve the details (flight times, transfers, layovers, etc.)

Do you offer discounted packages for destination weddings?
Unfortunately, we do not offer discounted packages for our destination weddings so the prices would be the same as our regular packages with the additional travel/lodging costs.

Can I book any accommodations for the team?
We ask that all accommodations be in safe and secure locations to ensure the safety of the shooters, their equipment, and your photos and video. AirBnB’s are acceptable as well, however we again ask they are in safe and secure neighborhoods with high ratings. We are happy to review all accommodations prior to booking the rooms if you are unsure.

Wouldn’t it be easier to hire a wedding photographer who is already located at the locations of my wedding?
Not necessarily. Typically hiring photographers from your wedding location is not only more expensive but riskier in terms of receiving your images. Past clients have decided against hiring destination photographers for a couple of reasons. It is not only harder to coordinate with them about the details of your wedding day, but also if you were to have any questions about your images, rather than having to deal with a prolonged and inconvenient correspondence, you could simply just come directly to us for assistance.

Where else have you shot a wedding or engagement session?
We’ve followed our clients all over the country and internationally to Mexico, Dubai, Maldives, Jamiaca, The Carribean, China and Italy just to name a few!
