Native Photographer or Destination Wedding Photographer?

If you're considering having a destination wedding in Barbados, you will need to chat as a couple and make a decision whether to hire a local photographer or to bring in a destination wedding photographer from your own country.

You may think, hiring a local photographer has the benefit of them knowing the area and customs. However, from experience, communications can be a bit tricky in the build up to the wedding.

Destination wedding photographers have a lot to offer. For one, they're used to travelling and can often help you with the logistics of a wedding in a far-flung location. They also tend to be well-connected in the wedding industry, so they can put you in touch with local vendors who can make your wedding day even more special.

Ultimately, the decision of whether to hire a local photographer or a destination wedding photographer is up to you. Of course, as a destination wedding photographer who has shot in Barbados and is experienced with destination weddings - I think it's worth hiring a destination wedding photographer for your wedding in Barbados. So if you're considering hiring a destination wedding photographer, be sure to consider all the benefits they can bring to your big day.

HOW TO FIND YOUR PERFECT DESTINATION barbados WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

If you've decided that you want to hire a destination wedding photographer for Barbados, then the next step is finding the perfect one for you. Here are my top 5 tips:

1. Look for photographers who have experience shooting in Barbados. As you might expect, the weather in Barbados is a big factor. When it's sunny (most of the time), it's exceptionally bright and not that easy to photograph in, so experience is vital.

2. Check out their portfolio to see if their style matches your vision. You want to make sure you love their work before booking them.

3. Have a chat with them over Skype or email to get to know them better. This is important as you'll be spending a lot of time with them on your wedding day.

4. Make sure they are available on your wedding date. Weddings in Barbados are becoming more and more popular. Also, the fact that it's a long flight means the photographer will likely need to book a couple of days either side, so the earlier you can book - the better!

5. Ask them about their travel and accommodation arrangements. Some photographers will include this in their package, which can save you money.
