Congratulations! By now you've definitely decided to have a destination wedding or elopement. You've probably already discovered that you can hire a photographer from the destination resort or location you are going to. That can really help with your costs, but as the saying goes, "You get what you pay for." There are many reasons why bringing your photographer may be the best option even if a photographer is included in your wedding package at your desired location.
With a stateside photographer, you don't have to go by online reviews to know if they are honest and deliver what they promise. If you go with someone in your home town you know by word of mouth whether the wedding photographer is trustworthy or not. Also you can check in Bridal Magazines and be sure that anyone featured can be trusted.
Wedding Photography is intimate, it's about special moments, it's about a love between 2 people and 2 families. Getting to know your wedding photographer before the wedding will help your wedding photographer in their shooting process. The more you speak/meet/shoot with them, the better the wedding photos will be.
PEACE OF MIND
You need to be able to relax on your wedding day! All that planning and stress boils down to that one single moment of peace, fun, and happiness. There are so many horror stories from couples who hired the resort photographer and their images were held hostage, or the contract terms do not get met. Without an international lawsuit, how will you get your images? Hiring a stateside photographer reduces your worry and stress by knowing that you will be able to get your contracted time/images.
Finding the right stateside photographer may be daunting, but your options here are endless! You can meet personally with destination wedding photographers in your hometown. You can skype, call photographers in other towns. You have so many options by using a stateside photographer. If the wedding photographer doesn't offer what you want, you can move on to the next interview to find exactly what you want! We pride ourselves at working with couples during their entire planning process to help them get the most out of their wedding photography.
ENGAGEMENT/BRIDAL/WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY CONSISTENCY
Hiring the same photographer for your engagement, bridal, and wedding photography will ensure you have more consistency within the images. A photographer looks at things different than you do, and every photographer is different from their initial vision, how they take the image technically and compose it, to the post-processing.
This is one of the most obvious reasons why booking a stateside photographer may be in your best interest. There could be a language barrier between you and the resort photographer even if they are English speaking.
You don't have to hire Joe Buissink, Jerry Ghionis, or Jose Villa for your wedding photography! You can always hire an excellent photographer from your area. Some of them are wanting to get into destination wedding photography, and you could actually spend LESS than if you hired the resort photographer. Just make sure you hire someone who is already wonderful at wedding photography stateside, and you'll be set!
