If you are flying in a photographer, the starting price would be travel fees only. I would say on average photographers will charge travel fees + a few thousand dollars, but it depends, the ones less experienced with DWs will often do it for travel only, or travel + a small fee (500-1000$), but the most experienced ones might want 5000$ - 10000$

How much is enough? Well, ultimately only you can determine that based on your desires and budget requirements, etc. But, remember that the old saying you get what you pay for is usually true.
Hope this helps.

When you first start looking at photographers, everything kind of looks the same and you begin with a list of ones that you think you may be interested in. once you contact them and the prices start rolling in, you will really get an idea of who is reasonable and who isn't, based on your budget of course and then (at least for me it did) the photographers start really distinguishing themselves.
To us, having someone who was enthusiastic and really seemed like they were thrilled to be a part of our celebration was very important. It was also helpful to have someone who would mix and match services based on our budget. We ended up really only paying for a normal package plus travel fees. Keep in mind that you are paying for a vacation for them, so hopefully this is enough to get you some wiggle room on prices!
Hiring a photographer is definitely a personal choice, but since they are capturing one of the most important days in your, make sure you are as picky as you can afford to be! Definitely one of those things I would try not to just "settle" with if pictures are important to you!
Good luck and can't wait to hear what you end up doing!

at no point do I consider going to photograph a destination wedding a "vacation". Im a professional, with the responsibility of traveling, shooting, archiving, traveling home, and editing to deliver what I hope to be amazing photos to a bride and groom.
Although I love to travel and photograph weddings, Im not really going to go into why its not a vacation. If anyone wants to know why, id be happy to respond to a PM. But trust me, if you hire a professional, there's no "vacation" involved.
