I'm flying my photographer out with us, but he would have the role of Best Man if he wasn't the photographer. He's charging the flight and hotel for his fee. He's going to do engagement photos, TTD, Ceremony, and the AHR. I know that no matter how hard I tried, I'd never find anyone to do it that cheap. He is a hell of a photographer too.

Some brides prefer to hire a local photographer, and some prefer to fly one in. It really comes down to your own personal preference. Even more importantly, though, is that you find someone whose work you love, and someone who you would enjoy working with, someone who is professional, personable, etc.


Best wishes,

I wanted the full resolution disc of photos, so that would have cost me an additional $500 on top of the $500 for the 1 hour of photos. Obviously, i wanted more than 1 hour of photos, so that was MORE money. And then I wanted a trash the dress session the next day. In the end, it was CHEAPER for me to bring in my own photographer as a guest at my wedding and as result I received three days worth of coverage and well over 1,000 images! It was perfect and one of the best decisions I made.
Did your photographer that you flew in have to get a temporary working permit for mexico? I am planning to fly my own photog in from Indianapolis and I just don't want to get suprised.
