If you are just interested in some happy snaps from your wedding than I'm not the photographer for you but if you are interested in having your wedding day story captured Than you have come to the right person and please read on.
Destination photographers - Brisbane Melbourne Sydney and internationally
Your wedding photography from this highly romantic day will be with you both always and while minor mishaps with decorations and other plans will soon be forgotten, poor photography and an inexperienced destination photographer will always haunt you.
I've been a storyteller with my photography for much of my career. Even while working internationally on assignment for the prestigious Time magazine in New York I was still telling stories with my images. I love telling stories and there can be no greater story to be told than that of two people in love and committing to each other for all time. With each wedding I'm commissioned for I have a different and unique story to be told and one we will tell together! I generally photograph the entire day from start to end capturing the major milestones of the day but also the special candid moments. I aim to capture the personality of your wedding not just take a few snap shots.
Breathtaking destination wedding photography - If this cinematic style of wedding photography talks to your emotions why not talk to me about photographing your wedding.
The benefits of hiring me as your destination wedding photographer is that you can meet me in person or easily chat by phone on multiple occasions to plan your event if you live remotely or outside Australia. Plus, I'm based relatively close to Asian and South Pacific destinations which means quick turnaround times for your wedding day coverage. I certainly don't need to spend a week to photograph your wedding in Sri Lanka or Bali for instance like some photographers do, I usually spend about three days, tops. By sticking with a photographer that is well travelled such as myself, we have the ability to work together before your wedding to develop a solid “working” relationship and you can gain advice that isn't possible with an inexperienced photographer that may not fully understand what you both are about. Additionally Destination Wedding Photography has to be well planned and an untraveled photographer will be overwhelmed with the experience let alone getting great photos for you both at your destination wedding. You definitely don’t need this stress and or disappointment, agreed? I have worked professionally in 30 countries (not gone on holidays there) and I can guarantee you a reliable, friendly, no fuss approach to creating the best destination wedding photography experience for you. I get a big kick out of seeing my couples enjoy their day while making great photos for them at a stunning location! Experience matters absolutely when it comes to choosing the best wedding photographer to travel to your wedding.
Destination wedding photographers - all inclusive rates and packages
My rates for Wedding Photography interstate and internationally are more affordable than you may realize. Hiring me for your destination wedding is easy. I can give you an all inclusive one off rate that includes exactly what you would like and covers my cost for travel etc. The weddings I'm hired for are usually full day coverage and this allows me the opportunity to tell your story comprehensively and capture all those special little moments throughout the day that would otherwise be missed with ceremony only coverage. When I asked couples from last year about their favorite photos from their wedding all them included candid photos from their preparation or reception! Some couples ask me to stay an additional day to do a post wedding portrait shoot where we get to have some fun with trash the dress themes for example or make some beautiful portraits at a stunning location or capture the vibe of the city streets while you explore. It really is good fun!
Destination wedding photographer rates
International Wedding Photographers - Bride and Groom portrait
I always endeavor to keep travel costs to an absolute minimum and we are currently experiencing unheard of discounts on travel into Asia and other parts of the world which ultimately make taking a destination wedding photographer such as me even more affordable. I generally like to arrive at your wedding location two days before your wedding and this is because I’ll spend the day before checking locations for your photography and any other considerations such as transport etc. Most of the time I’ll charge you a one off fee and I’ll do all my booking of flights and accommodation which leaves you free to concentrate on your other wedding plans. My fees vary depending on location and after our initial discussion I can give you a firm all inclusive rate to cover your day.
