Travel Costs only Photographers!

So, if you are going to go this route....seriously (but super politely, of course) give your potential photographer the 2nd degree. Find out what their processes are for portraits. Look at their portfolio and ask how those weddings went. Ask for references!! Other brides are always willing to rave about their photographers if they are awesome.
But, don't settle. Seriously. A lot of photographers will jump at the chance to shoot a first destination wedding. Just make sure those photographers are who YOU want to hire.

The last hurdle is that he has to ask for the time off, since he is also employed full-time as the university's official photographer! I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it works out. Then I have to draft a contract (or revise his standard one) to cover all the unexpected things I've seen on this forum. Thanks to this board, I'm prepared to lay out all the potential issues in the contract. Plus it helps to be a lawyer whose main task is contract drafting...I like to think I'm good at disaster-proofing an agreement.
So I think anyone that wants to try to find a travel costs photographer should do so. You get to choose from the portfolios and the worst they can say is no and the best is that you get amazing pics to treasure forever!

He really fit in great with my guests but he also did his own thing during the day time.
I searched for photogs in the States and in Canada. The guy I booked is from Montreal Canada. Not sure if we're permitted to mention names on here - but I do believe most photogs would like to include this new trend of destination weddings in their portfolio and if the wedding happens during a non busy period for them -they are doubly excited to help.

Jess, did you end up hiring a photographer or did you actually find someone to do it for free?
