Why Take a Destination Wedding Photographer?

Why take a destination wedding photographer?

You may be wondering, ‘why take a photographer all the way from the UK when you could just get one local to your destination wedding?’

Well, there are many reasons a couple would prefer to take a UK based wedding photographer.

There won’t be a language barrier

If you’ve chosen to marry in a destination where English isn’t the first language, it may be difficult to find a photographer than you can communicate fully with. Communication is one of my brand values. I think it’s so important for you guys to communicate exactly what you hope for your wedding photographs and I will communicate with you exactly how it works so you know what to expect.

You can meet them before the wedding day

If you hire a photographer local to your destination, it may be tricky to meet them before the wedding. Meeting couples face to face is such an important part of the process to get to know each other better and make sure they’re the right photographer for you.

I tend to book my flights to arrive a couple of days before your wedding. This means there’s enough time to meet you guys and visit your venue with you too.

You prefer their style of photography

The main reason you should choose your photographer should be on their portfolio and style of photography. There will be plenty of amazing photographers local to your venue however, there can be some disadvantages to that too. They may have shot at the same venues so often that their photographs may become cookie cutter and samey. Whereas I’ll listen to what you want from your photographs and see the venue and location with fresh eyes.
