Detroit, Michigan based destination photographer's take on destination wedding photography in Jamaica: Thanks for checking out my destination wedding slideshow from a Valentine's Day wedding in Negril, Jamaica. I grew up overseas and have been shooting in destinations all around the world for most of my life, so shooting weddings in locations outside the United States is a natural progression for me. I'm comfortable with different languages and cultures and can go about my business of capturing your wedding day without travel worries.

PRICING FOR MICHIGAN BASED DESTINATION WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER: I charge approximately $4000 for photographing destination weddings, which includes not only up to eight hours of wedding day photo coverage, but 4 hours of wedding coverage either the day before or the day after the destination wedding as well. As a destination wedding photojournalist, I fit in with your wedding, your guests and the mood you've worked so hard to create. Most destination weddings have activities lined up for their guests, or dinners to bring everyone together and I'm happy to cover those as on the day before or after as well. You see, I've arrived at the $4000 fee because you are effectively paying me for the entire weekend. I often book two weddings on a "normal" weekend, and this makes up the difference since I'm taken out of circulation and cannot shoot a wedding in Detroit, Michigan that weekend. I don't charge extra for the traveling, hotel, rental cars, parking and food (although do check with me.... if you're going someplace where airfare alone is super expensive, I might have to adjust for that), just for the two days of work.

As with all my wedding photography packages, you own all the high resolution, digital image photo files and take care of the printing yourself. The disks will arrive within two weeks of your fantastic destination wedding! Please check out my wedding albums so you can get a feel for my style and quality of work.

I'm often asked if Traverse City, Michigan or the UP (or Upper Peninsula count as a Michigan destination wedding and the answer is yes, they do. If I'm taken out of circulation for the weekend than it is considered a destination wedding. I have also shot weddings in Chicago and yes, that's also considered a destination wedding for me. Anything outside of a two hour drive from Troy, Michigan comes under the heading of me becoming a Detroit based destination wedding photographer. As always, feel free to contact me with questions you have about any and all of your destination wedding questions.
