Tips For Choosing A Photographer For Your Destination Wedding
Destination weddings are always in demand when it comes to the wedding scenario. Destination weddings have their own charm. Everyone gets a short trip and the wedding is one big never ending party! Nevertheless, wedding events require a little extra planning in the entire wedding department. And candid wedding photography is no exception. Here are a few tips from the Vivek Krishnan photography team on the best tips on choosing a photographer for your destination wedding.
Check With Your Venue Management– Some wedding venues have a vendor monopoly policy which requires you to use a candid wedding photographer from their preferred vendor list. These are professionals they’ve worked with before and trust to deliver great quality work. This works really well for you as the professionals are already vetted by the hotel management and even the photographers know the venue well.
Talk To Your Selected Photographer– Talk to your candid wedding photographer that you have picked about your venue and travelling. Chances are that the photographer may not be available to travel on those dates; some photographers do multiple events so it’s always better to talk to your photographer.
Set The Budget– Almost all candid wedding photographers have different rate packages for destination weddings. So it’s possible that the budget that you have set for your photography may go higher than you expected. Enquire with your candid wedding photographer before you seal the deal.
Pick Local– If you are planning to pick a local candid wedding photographer, do your research about them. Not that they won’t be good, but chances are that you may not know about them. For example, if you are getting married in Hyderabad, it’s possible that you may not know all the top candid wedding photographers in Hyderabad.
Know Your Wedding Itinerary– Destination weddings are drastically different from local weddings. Local weddings have a set number of events so you can hire your candid wedding photographer for. But in destination weddings there are a number of mini-events between the main wedding events, like a welcome lunch or even a mini-going away brunch. Be sure to hire your candid wedding photographer for the longest time you can, especially if you really want to tell the story of your celebration.
