Destination Wedding Photography Q + A


What is a destination wedding?

A destination wedding is a wedding at a location that requires travel to get to. There is no specific amount of travel required to define your special day as a destination wedding. Usually a couple of hours from home is a good start. And an overnight stay might be required.

But that’s it! It’s not hard to find a pretty spot to get married. Many people think a destination wedding requires flying overseas but that’s not the case. Plus, there are many beautiful wedding destinations right here in Australia.

If you’re based in Brisbane and the Gold Coast, are you still willing to travel to our wedding day?

The short answer is that of course, we’d love to! Chances are that if we’re free and can make it on the day then we’ll be delighted to photograph at your dream wedding destination.

Destination weddings and the need for photography is growing in popularity. Choosing to have your event in the perfect setting can often help you get closer to the goal of having that perfect wedding.

Whether it’s on white sand, in a private garden or at an award winning wedding venue, your wedding location does make all the difference to the experience and everlasting memories.

As wedding photography and video professionals it’s our job to capture the magic, and we love doing it! There’s nothing more exciting than packing your bags, hitting the road or hopping a flight to be a part of a lovely event full of happy people.


Do you include travel and accommodation in your wedding photography packages?

Generally most photographers pass on the full cost of travel to their client, but we believe in the age old adage that fair is fair. Plus, we like to make people smile!

If your event is within South East Queensland then we don’t charge, but if we need to fly, drive for any more than 1.5 hours, or stay overnight then we might ask you to help out with extra costs.

We love to see new places and meet new people, so we’re always up for an adventure and don’t mind spending time to get to your special day.


Are certain wedding venues or destinations better for taking photos?

Every wedding location has it’s challenges and benefits. All types of wedding venues and locations require our full attention and skill set.

A nice cool day with warm light is our favourite, but that’s not always possible. Things like wind, strong sun, heat and the immediate surrounds all effect the environment in which we make photographs. Even the time of day together with the month of the year effects the way light works.

Luckily working with all kinds of conditions and natural light is our jam. There’s always an image to be made no matter what the situation – it’s just up to the photographer’s ability and experience to capture the moment.

While we’re able to work with all kinds of locations and weather, the rest of the event may be difficult is there’s no backup plan. Remember – all good wedding planners should provide you with a backup plan that works in with the unique features and location of your dream destination wedding.


We want you to photograph our wedding! How do we check our date and book in?

Checking your date at the earliest convenience is a good start to getting your booking secured. We work on a first-come, first-served basis and our bookings do tend to fill up well in advance. So as soon as you’re ready say hello and we’ll get the ball rolling.

Our booking process is very easy. We chat on the phone, maybe meet for a coffee or video call to talk about your event and requirements, and then confirm the date. Once the confirmation is accepted the deposit is due and we can start planning to attend your special day.


Will you attend our wedding for more than one day? We have a lot planned and want someone to photograph the whole thing!

When people fly or travel a great distance for a wedding they usually want to stay for more than one day. It makes sense to make the trip worthwhile after all.

So we can most definitely include extra days together with our normal wedding packages. Just get in touch to discuss and we’ll strike up a plan. Click here to visit our Wedding Photography Packages page.
