Destination Wedding Photography

One of the most important question on a Destination Wedding is: Who will be your photographer? Hiring a photographer from your destination or a photographer from the hotel on your destination can be very low cost but also can be a nightmare. You never get to meet your photographer prior to your event nor will you be able to meet during post production. You also won't experience his/hers work in person during a photo session like an engagement. The benefits of hiring a professional photographer local to your home town to travel with you, will give you a piece of mind and the confidence that you know his work first hand. You will meet with us prior to your wedding day and even experience how we photograph on your engagement photo session. Having a photographer based close to you is making sure your photos will be just the way you dreamed. The post work will be reviewed by you in person prior to your final order is delivered, something almost impossible with a hotel or a photographer from your destination wedding. We usually would arrive two or three days prior to your wedding day, and quite often flying the same flight as the wedding party providing more beautiful photo opportunities. We scout all locations and find the most beautiful and unique places to photograph your wedding day and most of times we even stay a couple of extra days for extra honeymoon photos. Your unique Destination Wedding will be photographed creatively and professionally and you deserve this peace of mind.

Destination Wedding Photography Investment & Fees

At this time our packages are the same ones that we shoot for local destinations. There are some extra fees that apply to non-local destination wedding. Outside of our home base area, please add a traveling cost of $1.00 per kilometer if we are traveling by car. If the destination require traveling by air, ship, train or any other method that incurred extra cost, please add these cost to the total package value. For destinations that require staying overnight or even a few days, please add the hotel fees to the total package value. Also destination local transportation might be required, please consider these cost as well.

Consultation and wedding photography planning

Consultations are very important for both of us. It helps you to answer any questions you may have, be comfortable with us and how we photograph, and have your peace of mind that everything is being done to have a memorable special day. To have a smooth photo session, we plan all our photo shoots ahead of time. Knowing the details e.g. the number of family members, any unique relationship, an special item or location, etc. all help to plan and create a smooth photo session. Organizing the group of family members is often the most time consuming and for us not knowing the names and relationship of everyone, create problems and it is very time consuming. It is often recommended that a member of the bridal party uses a list to keep track and coordinate the families and guest for the photo session. We offer free consultations to help plan your photography wedding day.

Engagement photo session

The engagement photo session is a fun and very important time for you and for us. We get familiar with the poses that will best suits you so we can plan it for your wedding day. You will know how we work and will be confident that your wedding photos will be a work of art to cherish forever. Engagement can have one or several locations and can be a short two hours or last several hours. We like to choose unique and interesting locations and props, like old barns, crop fields, vintage buildings, waterfalls, vintage airplanes, locomotives, cars, boats, and most important, a location or prop that is meaningful for you.

Fearless Bridal photo session

"Au contraire" what most people think, the Fearless Bride sessions are a very unique and fun photo opportunities. The old idea of destroying your beautiful dress by taking a swim on the beach or throwing paint all over the dress is done and gone. Fearless Bride can be a beautiful and creative photo art piece. Unique ideas like riding a horse or a motorcycle, hanging by a wire at CN Tower, or a balloon ride will make this unique photo session a timeless memory. There is always the extreme like going for sky diving or bungee jumping or even scuba diving. There is no limit for the fearless bride photo session. Because a Fearless Bride session is so unique and most of them can only be tried once. We usually have two photographers. Most of the time these sessions have to be planed way in advanced and most of them are photographed after the wedding when you are back from your honeymoon.

Wedding coverage locations

Most weddings have four location; the Bride's home, the ceremony, the park, and the reception. Larger weddings usually include the Groom's home and the salon for the bride. Between the ceremony and the reception also can have several extra locations. Planning ahead is very important since time is limited to photograph that beautiful unique moment.

How long is the engagement photo shoot?

Usually being the first photo session we like the engagement to be relaxed, fun and enjoyable. Engagement can have a single location or several locations increasing the length of time and travel time. To take advantage of the beautiful location sceneries and background, usually one and half to two hour per location is adequate.

How much time do you need to photograph our wedding?

Each wedding is unique and vary with the size of the wedding, wedding party, family members, and number of guest. We usually ask for two hours per location and on a larger wedding and large families and guest you should consider an extra hour at the park.

Second or third photographer

A wedding is one beautiful and unique event and capturing all the unique images is a remarkable memory recorded forever. Often two photographers are shooting a wedding making your time more enjoyable and giving you the peace of mind that you will have a variety of images from unique angles. Two photographers also save time, while one is photographing details and guests, the main photographer can concentrate on you. Sometimes a third photographer is also used giving you the opportunity to have unique aerial drone wedding photography.

What is included in Post Production?

Any work done after any photo shoot is considered "post production". These include: custom editing, retouching, digital art, creating composite images, framing, mounting canvas, designing and mounting albums, custom developing film and/or prints, or any other work related done after the photo shoot.
