Destination Weddings - Should You Bring a Photographer With You?

Planning your wedding day is a task that by no means is an easy one, especially when your big day is going to be a destination wedding. Maybe you decided on a sandy beach somewhere in the Caribbean or perhaps you chose a fruitful vineyard in Tuscany. Wherever you chose, one thing is for certain: you are going to need a wedding photographer there to capture every special detail and moment. So do you hire a wedding photographer located at your destination; or do you bring one with you? This may seem like a hard choice, but the best investment you will make for your day is to bring one with you.

By bringing a wedding photographer with you, months can be spent together planning your wedding day.

Many photographers will work out plans with you beforehand, like offering a free engagement photo session, so you can understand their work and feel comfortable in front of their camera. Feeling comfortable with your wedding photographer will help them to create the best possible photographs of your big day. With a presence of your photographer so apparent throughout the weekend, your guests will also become more comfortable with the photographer, so the moments captured will be natural ,beautiful and fun! Additionally, the convenience of being able to communicate without language barriers or time change will to turn planning into ease! Then you won’t have to worry about learning how to say “cheese” in Italian… but if you’re wondering -it’s formaggio!

In addition to engagement photos, you may end up with a lot more pictures than you anticipated!

If your destination wedding is four days long and you have a photographer with you, they’ll often have their cameras with them for the duration of the trip-not just the big day. This way you can have pictures of your rehearsal dinner, scenery, a “trash the dress” session or any other planned activities- everything will be captured and documented.

By the time your wedding day comes around, you will have built a steady work relationship with your photographer.

This eliminates a feeling of a “stranger” present on a day that is planned around a group of people you know and love. Any awkward barriers have already been eliminated at this point since you have spent so much time with your photographer, giving you free range to be creative with your pictures.

You can fully enjoy every minute of your trip; no time has to be set aside to meet the person capturing your wedding day.

This makes your wedding trip and the time following easier and more enjoyable. When it comes time to receive your photographs online, pick up prints, organize an album or simply just want to reach out to your photographer-they are nearby; whereas a photographer in another country might make these steps a lot more difficult and out of your control.

The pictures you take on your wedding day are going to be cherished for the rest of your life.They are going to be the pictures you decorate your home with, pass on to your children, use to reminisce in thirty years with and be a beautiful reminder of what the best day of your life was like. You will find no regret in bringing a wedding photographer with you that helped make this day for you what it was. Know what to expect before your big day unfolds by knowing your photographer and enjoy the memories for years to come.
