GETTING MARRIED ABROAD?
looking for overseas wedding photography. I have experience of not only shooting weddings in the UK but also at numerous overseas wedding destinations. Travel photography is one of my biggest passions and I have travelled extensively throughout the world to places such as North America, the Far East, the Middle East, the Caribbean, and Africa with some of my work being published.
WHY CHOOSE A UK WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER?
If you get married abroad you’re often expected to find a ‘local’ wedding photographer with little or no prior knowledge of their work, or use the ‘resort’ photographer for your overseas wedding photography. Some of the benefits of hiring a photographer from the UK to attend your overseas wedding include:
- Being able to meet up in advance on UK soil to discuss your day well in advance of your wedding
- Being able to receive your images in person once you return rather than having to rely on international postage
- Employing a photographer that is fully insured with UK business insurance for professional indemnity and public liability
- Not having to settle for a photographer that is part of a ‘package’ deal which often only provides a limited number of images
WON’T IT BE STUPIDLY EXPENSIVE?
Short answer – no! Hiring me as your photographer needn’t be any more expensive than hiring a photographer at your destination. All I ask is that for ‘shorthaul’ weddings (e.g. within 5 hours flight/travel from the UK) that you provide me with a minimum of 3 nights accommodation and for ‘longhaul’ (anything over 5 hours) there’s a minimum of 4 nights provision. This is in addition to travel, but I am happy for you to arrange any budget airline/transport.**
For the overseas photography itself, I then charge £500.
Where possible for overseas weddings I do ask that you provide a meal for me on the day of the wedding, however for the rest of the time I am able to provide my own food and sustenance. All of the above prices include personal and business insurance.
HOW CAN YOU AFFORD TO DO IT SO REASONABLY?
Simply put, I love travelling and embrace any opportunity to go overseas! I am always looking to expand my portfolio and reach so am willing to amend my prices in light of this. Also, if your overseas wedding coincides with any trip that I already have planned then I will happily provide coverage at a cost of just the photography services and no additional travel.
HOW DO I BOOK OVERSEAS WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY?
In pretty much exactly the same way as you would domestic wedding photography – either drop me an email: firstname.lastname@example.org or give me a call: 07411113815 to discuss your requirements and we’ll take it from there.
**travel assumes departure from Gatwick/Heathrow – any other airport/departure point will incur mileage at a cost of £0.45p per mile (from and returning to Reading) in addition to any parking/train/coach travel that’s deemed necessary.
