Keep reading to hear the most common questions people have about destination wedding photography!
For a destination wedding, you have two options for photography: a photographer located at your destination that is familiar with the venue, or a photographer near you that is willing to travel.
Many couples start out believing that hiring a photographer close to their venue is the more convenient choice. The pros of this option are that it could potentially save you money and it will be easier to confirm availability with this photographer.
However, what you gain in convenience, you may lose in quality, reliability, and overall energy.
