So, you love my work, but you are not getting married in the UK – No problem! Find our more about the Destination Wedding Photography that I offer.
Not much could be more exciting than a destination wedding outside of the UK, there’s a world full of history and beauty out there, including the locations of some of the greatest love stories of all time.
Castles, beaches, small romantic city streets, old town feels or breath-taking vistas. What’s not to love!
Over the years I’ve been lucky enough to shoot a lot of destination weddings (where the couple get married abroad surrounded by family and friends) and wedding elopements (where the couple disappear just the two of them for a more intimate ceremony) I tend to then shoot portraits afterwards.
Both are brilliant fun.
I love travel and I love shooting destination wedding photography, so destination weddings are a natural and perfect fit for me.
Usually when I shoot a destination wedding, I arrive a few days before so I’m available to shoot rehearsal dinners, pool parties, or family get together’s before the actual big day. Then when the actual wedding day is here, we shoot all day, have an amazing time and then I usually return home the next day.
Over the years I’ve shot destination wedding photography in Jamaica, St Lucia, New York (x 3), Las Vegas (x 2), Cyprus (x 3), Florence, Venice, Slovenia, Sweden (x 2), Iceland and Santorini. The list goes on!
I’m also keen to photograph in some countries that I have never photographed in. So, if you are having a destination wedding which isn’t on my list, please do get in touch and I will put together a personalised quote.
I bring my energy, skill, and passion with me on every shoot, but especially on destination weddings where we will inevitability spend more time together.
I’ll be a massive part of your day and be in the unique position to be able to capture every part of your wedding experience (particularly if we meet at the airport!).
Every environment is different, unique and exciting, allow me to create some awesome memories with you both, memories that you will like and memories you’ll absolutely love.
So, what’s the cost… show me the money you say!
Ok, ok, so the way I work is transparent, you choose the package you want, then add on £500 for European weddings, and £1,250 for Caribbean / North & South American / Asia weddings. This extra cost covers all my additional expenses, I’ll quote you a price and that’ll be the price you pay. The reality is that when you arrange weddings abroad you’ll pay a fortune on resort or local photographers anyway, and usually you’ll be really fortunate if you connect with a photographer over there that understands your wants.
So, you may as well book me and get exactly what you do want!
But don’t just take my word for it, here’s Dan & Laura who I worked with in New York last year.
NYC Elopement Wedding Photography (in the City)
“We were never going to have a ‘normal’ wedding and we also knew that we wanted something more exciting and artistic than traditional wedding photography. As soon as we came across Chris’ stand at the Birmingham NEC Wedding Fair we knew he was the one we wanted to capture our elopement to New York City!
From the point of booking with Chris, communication was great, and we received regular updates. We had our final meeting with Chris about a month before we went to NYC, which was very exciting as we narrowed down what the plan was and he gave us ideas for things we hadn’t even considered for our photographs.
For our wedding we had arranged 2 days of photography, on the day before the wedding we had our engagement shoot and then our wedding photos on the actual day.
On both days Chris calmed our nerves and put us both at ease of being in front of the camera, surprisingly quickly considering we often had an audience of strangers!
Chris slipped seamlessly into the day, we had 2 guests so there were 5 of us in total and it felt like we had always known each other, it was never awkward, a lot of fun and a completely professional service.
Chris is so incredibly talented at what he does, our photographs are beautiful, and we will treasure them forever, everyone who has seen them has told us that they are the best wedding photos they have ever seen!
We would 100% recommend Chris for your elopement, he makes the whole process so easy and stress free, listens to what you want and the work he produces for you is outstanding. He is a great guy and you will have a lot of fun on what is already a very special day!”
