Guide to Destination Wedding Photography

When you are having a destination wedding there is much more to organize than just the location and venue. It can take dedication, planning, and flair to organize your dream day! As a Sydney celebrant, I find that the photography at your destination wedding is one of the first things to organize.

As a marriage celebrant in Sydney, I have performed beautiful wedding ceremonies throughout New South Wales and Australia and I am able to marry you in the US.

With a little planning and by taking the below tips into consideration, your wedding photography will be stunning whichever destination you choose.

Choose a Photographer Who is a Great Fit for You

Whether you have your wedding ceremony in Sydney or overseas you need to choose a photographer who:

  • You relate well too;
  • Has photography you love;
  • Has great testimonials;
  • Can travel to your wedding destination on your wedding day;
  • Has a price that fits your budget.

Permits and Forms

Ensure that your photographer has the correct permits and forms to be granted access to your wedding ceremony in Sydney or your wedding destination. There are different regulations for different countries. Check with your wedding venue for more information and them venue has indemnity insurance.

The Photographs

Liaise with your photographer to see what is the best time of day for lighting for your photos. Sunrises and sunsets occur at different times of day throughout the world.

Sydney celebrants recommend meeting with your photographer to discuss exactly the effect that you want for your photographs. Black and white shots, backdrops and romantic beach sunset photos can all be scheduled easily ahead of time. On the day there is so much going on … having a plan will ensure that all of the main shoots that are important to you will be taken.

Consider also some shoots for after the wedding if you are staying on for your honeymoon.  Your wedding destination is a place that you will visit perhaps just once in your lifetime.

A little planning can lead to perfect destination wedding photography. Contact Jan Littlejohn, marriage celebrant Sydney, for more information on beautiful weddings.
