We have also found that many destination wedding photography packages from the tour operators only include a set number of images (maybe 50-100 and more costs a lot more). More often than not they only offer coverage for a set number of hours as there might be other weddings for them to shoot on the same day – one story we were told was that the hotel had four weddings and the photographer was stretched over all four for the day!
From bridal preparations all the way through the ceremony, group photographs, romantic sunset shots through to your speeches, reception and first dance or even your WHOLE stay if you have lots planned! A couple years ago we captured a wedding up in the western highlands of Scotland. We were up there for four days capturing not only the entire wedding day but the hikes and activities that the bride and groom had planned for their guests over the four days. Being up there in the Highlands with all the guests meant we got to know everyone for two days before the wedding which in turn reflected in the wedding photography with the photographs being really fun and natural – just the way we like it!
“All our Destination Weddings are tailor made for what the couple want us to capture. I was honoured to capture an intimate wedding (only 7 people) for 3 days on the island of Koh Samui in Thailand. For the time I was there I was welcomed into their family and I covered not only the getting ready but a traditional Chinese tea ceremony before the wedding, the ceremony on the beach and the remainder of the day up until the night where the family let off Chinese lanterns on the beach. I then spent the following 2 days with the family capturing boat trips, snorkeling, elephant trekking, a 30km bike ride through the jungle, trip to a bird zoo, temple and waterfalls with a combination of our Canon cameras and our GoPro”.

Because there is two of us, each with our own professional equipment, it means we are perfectly suited to destination wedding photography. Being able to be in two places at once effectively; two sides of a hotel or in different buildings capturing everything means your full story can be told. We love traveling and meeting new people. Providing we have ample time to plan the trip and arrange adequate childcare, quality destination wedding photography is a service that we can provide.
