I’m often told I have the best job in the world… and its right, I do! In 2017 I will be working in Portugal, Croatia, Italy and Jamaica!
In 2016 I was lucky enough to photograph three weddings in Italy, one in Greece and one in Mexico. 2018 will take me to Greece and Italy again and who knows where else!
Without a doubt, 100%, I HAVE THE BEST JOB IN THE WORLD!
So you’ve decided to head for the sun and get married abroad rather than at home, and now you have the huge task of planning an entire wedding from a distance. Where to start!!
Lots of holiday companies offer an all inclusive wedding package that often includes a photographer, the chances are you will end up with a hotel photographer who may not necessarily specialise in wedding, or you may feel rushed into selecting your wedding images to be printed in an album before you leave for home, with no digital copy or without the opportunity to properly sit down and look at all of your images in your own time.
Why not take your wedding photographer abroad with you? Amy is one of my brides who has booked with me to document her wedding in Italy next year, so I asked her this very question. I’ll let her explain the benefits, because I simply couldn’t put it better myself….
“It’s one less thing to think about closer to the time, we feel confident and assured that it’s all in hand prior to our arrival at the venue. Having a pre-wedding shoot to get used to being natural in front of a camera is a bonus! Building up a relationship before the wedding so that we feel 100% comfortable and at ease on the big day! It’s also nice to be able to see the final product, like the wedding albums and the different styles – we loved having the opportunity to look through them! The language barrier is non existent – nothing will get lost/misunderstood in translation. It is important to us that our close family, like our parents can meet and get to know the photographer as they will be a big part of our wedding day.”
