I’m confused. Are you asking about a destination wedding or just having a destination photo shoot? And what would be involved with the latter? Just you and the groom or the bridal party?

Couldn;t you just take some shots on your honeymoon?

lostbunny876:  Okay, I’m still confused. By “photo shoots” what are you referring to? That’s a really broad spectrum of photography. Outside of the actual wedding day photos (which is consist of the ceremony, family formals, bridal party, bride/groom photos, and reception) the most common sessions are Engagement Sessions, Bridal Portraits, and Day After sessions. Are you wanting a Day After session in your wedding attire somewhere abroad? If so, you would research photographers in that area and find one you like, then book them. Same for engagement, bridal, etc.

lostbunny876:  If you and your husband just want to go abroad to take some portraits, go for it (although I think that is a really crazy thing to do). If you want to ask your bridal party to do it with you guys, no. That’s a horribly unnecessary expense for “perfect” photos. If you are talking about a destination wedding or a wedding close to home, that is up to you.

lostbunny876:  It sounds like what you’re wanting is commonly referred to as a “Day After Session”. It’s really popular with most of my clients these days. It’s basically a portrait session, taking place after the wedding, where you’re dressed back up in your wedding attire. I shoot in a resort area, so often my couples want photos at a certain beach or landmark, but don’t have time the day of their wedding. It’s also common when couples have bad weather/rain and are unable to go outside for portraits.

If that’s what you’re wanting, you need to just decide on a location and then start researching for wedding photographers in that area.
