Reasons to Travel Overseas for Wedding Photo shoot
Pre-wedding, during-wedding, and post-wedding photo shoots are a thing these days. Finding the perfect locations, the perfect poses, the perfect photographers with the perfect lenses are an important function to fulfill before one can start taking the pictures. For the perfect locations, don’t over think: go abroad. Having a wedding photo shoot abroad may seem daunting, but it really isn’t. travelling overseas for a wedding photo shoot actually has its merits, and if you have been on the fence this whole time, read on and make that decision to get off that fence (and make flight plans to go to Santorini or Phuket for that photo shoot).
Why You Ought to Go Abroad for a Wedding Photo shoot
Ø Weather: It doesn’t matter where you’re from, the weather in that other place will always be better than yours. Okay, that is not strictly true, but the weather factor is something to consider when thinking of an overseas photo shoot location. Depending on when the wedding is taking place, and where, one can decide to go to some part of Asia or Africa for a photo shoot with/without rain, snow, or sand storms.
Ø Lasting memories: Pictures will always remind you of the time you had, the fun and novelty of the entire process when you travelled to Santiago to have you wedding photo shoot. Memories are priceless.
Ø VACATION!: It’s a vacation in itself. You are travelling to take pictures! What’s not to get excited about? Still on that fence?
Ø Learn a New Language, Meet New People: Travelling overseas is always a great way to meet diverse people and learn new customs and traditions, and get to drive on the opposite side of the road legally. Even if the photo shoot is for two days and a quarter, the experience of meeting new people and learning to say ‘good morning’ in a different language is kinda worth it.
Ø Stories: There will definitely be stories to tell about that one time you travelled to Greece for three days to do a photo shoot for your wedding.
Ø Affordable Rates: There are studios abroad that cater specifically to couples who want to take their wedding pictures overseas. Some of these studios offer their services at affordable rates, and even have a lot of staff on hand for various purposes related to the photo shoot, such as makeup artists, hair stylists, clothing stylists, and even a photo shoot coordinator. And all of these come at affordable rates. Why aren’t you already on a flight to Singapore?
Ø Unlimited Locations: The only thing limiting about wedding photo shoot locations is one’s imagination. And poor decision-making skills. There are castles in Scotland, pubs in Ireland, wildlife in Kenya, plains in Tanzania, that oddly-shaped building in Sydney, Australia… the options are endless. It doesn’t matter what you want, or think you want: there is a location that is just perfect for you.
Yes, now you’re off the fence. Where are you headed for to do that wedding photo shoot? Doesn’t matter: make sure the pictures get on a blog for the world to see, for they will be spectacular.
