Getting Married Abroad? Overseas Wedding Photography

I shoot numerous overseas weddings every year. 2016 saw me travel to India, Lake Como, Tuscany, France, Cyprus, Malta, Positano and Seattle! ​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! 2017 sees me going to Mexico, Santorini, Bordeaux, Positano and Sorrento.

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 - £1,350 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 - £1,650 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 a minimum of 3 nights for destinations further than a 4/5 hour flight from the UK)

​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.
