"Would you travel to ________ for our wedding?" This is the question I'm always asked when couples come to me for their destination wedding photography. My answer is always either: "hell yeah," "um, yes," or "holy moly, yes!" if I'm in a wholesome mood. While a lot of people stress about figuring out the logistics of getting from point A to point B, I love it. And that comes in super handy when shooting weddings abroad.
I've traveled cross-country, backpacked around Europe, driven the crazy mountain roads of Puerto Rico, and stayed in a yurt full of frogs and geckos in the Caribbean. I'm willing to go the mile, or many miles, to be at your wedding. I'll hike, get bitten by mosquitos, and get muddy as hell with you in order to make sure your wedding photography is as epic as possible.
All destination weddings also include a day-before or day-after portrait session, so we can take advantage of the location. I figure out a flat travel fee right when you book, so no surprises after the wedding. I figure out how to get there and where to stay, so you don't have to do anything extra. What do I consider a destination? Basically, if I have to get on a plane, it's a destination! For weddings that I can drive to but are 3 or more hours away, I usually just add in the cost of a hotel room for the night, plus a little somethin' for gas.
There are no travel fees for weddings in New York, Connecticut, the UK, or Joshua Tree California right now.
