We, Elsinore Wedding, offer extra services along with wedding photography to couples who come to get married in Denmark and choose us for their wedding arrangements. If you do not want to ask your destination wedding planner, then here are all the important details about destination wedding photography.
It is not possible or cost-effective to take a wedding photographer with you. You have to hire the one in local. You should research well about wedding photographers using various sources. You can talk to your wedding planner, hotel staff, and take the help of the internet as well to do quick research and find some destination wedding photographers in your selected wedding destination.
Check past work
Wedding photographers are different than other photographers. They know some romantic wedding locations and poses. You cannot hire any random photographer. To be sure about your choice, you can ask your shortlisted wedding photographers to show their past work. This will help you find the right one.
Fix the cost and project
Destination wedding photography can include pre-wedding and post-wedding photo-shoot along with photography on the wedding day. Moreover, it would require specific instruments along with a professional camera such as lighting equipment, drone, etc. You need to be clear about all these facts. Clearly discuss what is included and what is not. Usually, destination wedding photographers have packages and you can choose the one that you find perfect for you.
Book in advance
Even if you are going to hire a local photographer, you need to hire one well in advance. In destination wedding, it becomes even more important to avoid last-minute disappointments or hustle. You must book the dates and time of your wedding photography.
Discuss the plan in person
Once you reach the destination, you must meet your wedding photographer. Invite him for a cup of coffee and know the schedule. This first meeting will help you build a bond and also ensuring, the schedule meets your expectation.
You might have great ideas for your wedding photography and you should do what you like. However, it is necessary to be friendly with your photographer and take his suggestions. He must be doing this job for a long and he knows how to take pictures and which pictures would be awesome. Therefore, even if you give comments on your pauses, take suggestions from your wedding photographer as well.
