Destination Info + Pricing

Info:

These are absolutely my favorite.
Traveling and seeing new lands with awesome couples! 😀

As far as workflow, destination weddings follow the same workflow as a typical wedding – just in a different setting.

In terms of photography, there is a bit more flexibility on what I can do.
Some couples opt to do their newlywed photos the day after their wedding (typically sunset) so they can enjoy time with family and friends on wedding day.
I’m not in a rush to go anywhere, so let’s travel a little bit and take some photos in cool and beautiful places!
Feel free to offer any suggestions on locations and we can work from there.
If you’re thinking of taking a hike, take a helicopter, or any adventurous ideas, I’m 100% down with it.
I will bring my cameras, a portable bluetooth speaker, and I’ll probably share some random stories about my life 😛

Pricing wise, overall, I want to make this process as easy as possible and hassle-free.
For transparency: Destination wedding rates are the same as local wedding rates; you just gain the bonus of a day-after session and events prior to the wedding.
If you opt to do so, the day after session is pro-bono; as it eases a lot of stress from the wedding day.

Travel and accommodation information are available at the bottom 🙂

Traveling + Accommodation Prices:

Update – December 2017:
*** Couples who are having a wedding in Australia: I cover for travel and accommodation ***

Clients will cover for:
Round Trip ticket to the destination area.
3 nights stay lodging (2 nights prior to the event and the night of the event)

I will cover for:
Rental Car / Gas
Meals
Tolls
Any extra night accommodations or lodging if I intend to prolong the trip

Details:
I arrive at the destination area 2 days prior to the wedding.
For example: A Saturday wedding would mean I arrive on Thursday.
In the event there are any unforeseen circumstances, an extra day to travel is there as back up.
I would stay until Sunday morning and if you want to do a photoshoot on that day, we can 🙂

As for travel options, if the location is accessible by car, I will most likely take that route.
Otherwise, traveling by air is best.

Fortunately, I live by 3 airports that make for different options.
The airports that I use are BWI, IAD, or DCA (in order of most convenient)

I typically will be doing a bit of traveling around the area after the wedding, so we can discuss my exact travel dates.
Please feel free to tag along if you would like!


How does the “a la carte” system work?

Essentially, all products are side items.
You decide on things such as prints and albums – you are not obligated to go through me.

Print orders can be done online through the online gallery.
On the other hand, the album creation process will be done with me.
This allows for personalization, as well as, a simpler album creation process.
The album won’t be made until your final approval.

Please feel free to e-mail me for a full-pricing sheet for these a la carte items.
If you have any more questions, feel free to contact me!
