Destination weddings are incredible and I’m not surprised more any more people each year choose to get hitched somewhere far away from home. The question is: how to find a good destination wedding photographer? Should you hire a local photographer or the one from your hometown that’s willing to fly with you? Is it better to opt for a less expensive solution: a resort’s photographer? I’ll try to help you with this challenging task.
For some couples, resort photographer might be the only solution – because others aren’t allowed to be used at some venues. Although choosing resort photographers cuts on some costs, I suggest being cautious about them, because most of them won’t impress you with their work. If you’re not satisfied with previous wedding photography albums created by a wedding photographer your resort suggests, ask whether you can bring an outside wedding photographer.
Local wedding photographers can be pretty amazing, that’s for sure. They know a lot of wedding venues, as well as beautiful and secret hot spots. The only problem is how to find them. Check out KYMA database for some incredible wedding photography artists.
If you still cannot find a photographer whose work you like, do consider flying a photographer from your own area. This way you won’t be limited to the wedding photographers located nearby your wedding venue. So, find a photographer who blows you and your future spouse away! On the down side, there is the increased cost to cover photographers’ travel expenses. And, also, some photographers won’t be willing to travel.
Finally, keep in mind that your destination wedding photographer is surely one of the most important vendors you’ll hire when organizing your big day. Since you’ll be spending so much effort and time planning a wedding in a breathtaking location, those pics will be the only memories you’ll have when all is said and done.
