GETTING MARRIED ABROAD? OVERSEAS WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY

I shoot numerous overseas weddings every year. 2016 saw me travel to India, Lake Como, Tuscany, Lyon, Cyprus, Malta, Positano and Seattle. In 2017, I photographed weddings in Mexico, Santorini, Bordeaux, Positano and Sorrento. 2018 sees me head back to Sorrento, Nice, Copenhagen, Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Venice. 

Travel photography is one of my biggest passions and I have travelled extensively throughout the world, including the Middle East, Asia and Africa. I know what I'm doing when it comes to taking photographs abroad!

WHY CHOOSE A UK 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 a 'resort' photographer. 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
  • Receiving 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 overseas wedding photographer needn't be any more expensive than hiring a photographer at your destination. I will travel anywhere in the world and offer the following packages:


EUROPEAN DESTINATIONS - £1,650 includes:

  • Full day's photography coverage (approximately 12 hours) of your overseas wedding 
  • Any coverage of 'extras' (e.g. if there's a dinner the night before) 
  • Travel to and from the destination (including flights, car parking, taxis/transfers, etc.)
  • Accommodation (typically 2 nights for European destinations)
  • ​500+ fully edited images provided on a USB and password-protected online gallery 
  • Pre-wedding meet/chat/Skype/facetime
  • ​All necessary insurance, work visas 

There are no other hidden costs


'REST OF THE WORLD' DESTINATIONS - £1,950 includes:

  • Full day's photography coverage (approximately 12 hours) of your overseas wedding

​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 VAT. 


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.
