Will a wedding photographer travel to a venue for my big day?

When considering choosing a wedding photographer, it is always worth factoring in where you are getting married. Is that somewhere your wedding photographer can travel too?

Most wedding photographers tend to be companies or individuals who are based in a certain location, when you contact a wedding photographer if you are planning on getting married in the Outer hebrides and that photographer is based in Kent, it may be pushing your luck when it comes to reasonable travel arrangements.

For example a potential customer contacted me recently asking if i would be willing to travel to Middlesbrough in the north east of England, as a business I am based in the West Midlands. In fairness ordinarily I would not cover that area, but there is that old saying ‘Never say never’

I factored in the mileage and based on the package the potential customer chose, this made it a viable option to take a job outside of my usual catchment area.

If you contact a wedding photographer, always ask what areas do you currently cover?

Is there an extra charge for the photographer to travel to this venue/location?

Just a tip: Some people may charge per mile, but this is quite rare in my opinion, and can also be an expensive way of costing the travel.

You will often find that many photographers are reasonable and may sometimes include any travel within the price. However don’t also be alarmed if they do charge extra for petrol especially if the Wedding is being held at a location that they do not normally cover.
