From your photographer’s perspective, a destination wedding would be considered anywhere they would need to hop on an air plane to photograph. So since I serve the Midwest and Carolinas, for me destination weddings could be any of the following…


What Is Considered a Destination Wedding?

inquire >>

When a couple inquires about their destination wedding, I send over my standard pricing guide alone with my Destination Wedding Guide. This will allow you to look through my wedding package and understand a bit more about how destination weddings work from a photography perspective. From here, I love meeting couples in person or setting up a phone/Skype call to get to know one another better.

WEDDING INQUIRY

A signed contract, retainer and travel expenses are due upon booking. After all three are completed, you are officially official! Yay! This is when I purchase my ticket and make my arrangements for your wedding. I always arrive 24 hours minimum before my start time and expense the lowest travel cost to couples for departure within 72 hours of my end time. After logistics are set, I set up an additional meeting with my couples to confirm all arrangements.

PLANNING & FINALIZING

I will be checking in with you from time to time. However about six weeks before the wedding date, I will send you my Wedding Day Questionnaire. This will allow you to provide me with timeline details, vendor info, address and everything else I'll need to know. When you submit this form to me, I will review it all and set up one one meeting for us to chat and finalize everything. Final invoice is send during this time.

OUR CHAT BEFORE BON VOYAGE

For destination weddings, I make a point to communicate fully with my assigned person of contact. I will send text message alerts once I arrive, check into my hotel and arrive on scene. My goal for your wedding day is that you two enjoy yourselves in a fabulous destination, you both feeling incredibly loved and the photography aspect of your day is simple and as easy as possible. We will spend the day capturing memories, being in love and enjoying the amazing place we're at!

YOUR WEDDING DAY!

Five days after your wedding, I publish a blog post with my favorite 100 images from your wedding. I will share this post with you so you can share it with your family and friends. Within 45 days from your wedding, you will receive your full wedding gallery with anywhere from 600-800 photos. You will have access to this gallery for TEN years! Through your gallery, you can download, print and share all photos. You are given complete photo rights.

GALLERY DELIVERY

If you choose to add an album to your package, I will begin working on the design using the "favorites" you selected inside your viewing gallery. I will design the album, have it approved by you, and ship it directly to your doorstep. Albums can be ordered at anytime before or after your wedding.

ALBUM DESIGN

For me, I have the best job in the world. I am a wedding photographer because I love to truly serve and love on couples by not just taking beautiful photos, but by caring about who my couples are outside of wedding planning. I look at being a wedding photographer almost like having a front row seat into your love story. My goal for every couple is not to collect a paycheck, deliver photos and be on my way, but to keep my front row seat, follow your love story through the years and continue to serve you in anyway I can.

I KEEP MY FRONT ROW SEAT

Common Q&A’s

Great question! After a couple decides to book Amy Bone Photography for their destination wedding, I collect a signed contract, a 50% retainer and airfare. I purchase all travel arrangements myself and add the expenses onto my couple’s invoice. Airfare is due upon booking. Hotel and rental car arrangements are collected on the final invoice, sent 30 days before wedding day. I purchase airfare getting me to the destination 24 hours minimum before my start time. I invoice departing airfare at the lowest cost departing 72 hours after end time.

My second photographers are a fantastic investment for you wedding day. Adding one would mean an additional expense onto your package as well as airfare + hotel. Before adding one of my Second Photographers on, let’s review your timeline together to see if your day needs one or not.

If you are located within 100 miles of zip codes 61115 or 29646, then yes. If you are located outside of those zip codes, small travel fees do apply. If you are significantly located outside those two zip codes, you can either purchase additional travel arrangements or have $100 taken off your package in exchange for not participating in the engagement session.

Sun screen, a good book, all of my equipment, a photo of my pup, a long list of amazing shots I want to capture of you two and a snack!

“Leading up to our wedding day, we faced a lot of dilemmas and blocks in the road, what a blessing that was. Amy was able to shoot our wedding and I couldn’t have chosen a better fit. To this day, my mom still talks about how awesome Amy was from the moment she walked into our home. She not only was so talented behind the camera but she truly cared about my wants and needs throughout the day…. I have found a forever friend and photographer in Amy.”

“Amy Bone was put on this earth to capture beautiful moments. She not only has the most impressive eye for a photograph of anyone I’ve seen, she also absolutely radiates love and joy for the people she is photographing. She should charge a fee for her presence alone, she’s THAT wonderful. I cannot imagine a better individual to have capture the most important and intimate moments of one’s life. She is our forever photographer, hands down. I am blown away by the shots she did for my fiancé and I. Everyone deserves to be as happy with their photos as I am with mine. I cannot emphasize enough how much I recommend Amy.”

“Amy is AMAZING! She is more than just a photographer, she’s a friend, planner, helper, support and everything in between. We discovered Amy after a bad experience with our previous wedding photographer. Amy instantly put us at ease and made us confident in hiring her. The photos we’ve seen from our day were outstanding!! Our guests were commenting on how they can’t wait to see what she captured because she was EVERYWHERE! Going into this day, we were confident that Amy was going to capture everything beautifully. She will honestly be our go-to photographer for everything for now on.”
