Booking an Out-of-Town Wedding Photographer

These days you have lots of choices when it comes to wedding photography, and while the choice to go local seems like a natural one, it’s not always the only option worth looking into. If you find a photographer who’s style meshes with yours, and who’s manner and attitude bring out the best in you, don’t toss the idea of hiring them just because they don’t live in the area where you plan to say “I Do!”.

Personally, I’m happy to travel for the right couple, and I know many other photographers who agree with me. Getting married in Phoenix but the photographer you love lives in Saskatoon? Drop them a line. Chances are they’ll offer you a discounted rate to help you cover the costs of their travel and hotel expenses. Even if they don’t, at least you won’t be left wondering.

Depending on where you live, the going rate for wedding photography may vary drastically from the going rate in another location. In some places you can expect to pay $4000 which does NOT include a CD of your photography or any prints. Those same photographers may tack on as much as $3000 for the CD and a small print package. Where in another location, a going rate of $2000 to $3000 will INCLUDE the CD and the rights to print your images wherever you see fit. In these cases the couple thousand dollar difference will MORE than cover the costs of flying in and putting up an out of town photographer.

So do some research. Looking outside your geographical region may just end up saving you a couple thousand dollars… and that can go to ensuring your day is as magical and memorable as you deserve.

  1. I never realized you did photography….. i knew you took very good photos but never realized it was more than a hobbie. Good on you! And we will keep that in mind for any future family pictures.
