How much does a Bora Bora photographer cost ?

First step - defining your budget

An essential step that will condition the rest of the operations is the first exchange to define the budget. Your photographer will take into consideration your needs, wishes and present you with their real cost.

You should know that there are many things that will determine the final cost of your photographer in Bora Bora: the duration of the photography project, the kind of event (wedding, honeymoon, fashion, editorial..), number of guests, the type of photography to document your event (reportage photography, drone photography, film photography, drone video) and other services like boat trips, wedding album, photo prints, etc.

In any case, your Bora Bora photographer should give you the exact final price including all services in accordance with your wishes and needs.

The cost of a professional photography shoot in Bora Bora can vary. It depends on your project, duration, kind of event and of course - on your wishes.

The part of the recognition of your kind of event (wedding, honeymoon, vow renewal, wedding anniversary, portrait photo shoot, editorial shoot, fashion, family photo shoot, shoot for baby moon, maternity pictures, engagement photography) is the first step to be done and most often determined in advance.

Your photographer is a competitive person to guide you to make the best and the most suitable choices for your photography project during your special event.

Once again, your photographer, in contact with the hotel, wedding planner, designer, wedding coordinator, has a mission to guide you and listen to your wishes.

Almost every hotel in Bora Bora offers a wedding package: The St Regis, The Four Seasons Resort, The Intercontinental Thalasso & Spa, The Hotel Pearl Beach Resort, The Conrad Bora Bora Nui.

What is the best time for your photo shoot in Bora Bora?

Bora Bora is an island and the changing light during the day has a crucial influence on the photography results you wish to obtain. That is why it is important to work with a Bora Bora photographer who is used to this geographic zone. They will have a store of knowledge and experience to guide you and advise on the best time for your photography project in accordance with your expectations.

The sunrise and the morning

If you like soft light, soft colors and a peaceful atmosphere, the sunrise can be a great option for your photographic project.

If you prefer colorful images and you want to reveal all the shades of blue of Bora Bora’s lagoon, the morning is the best moment to do that.

The sunset and the afternoon

If you love a romantic mood and beautiful portraits of your couple are the most important, then the sunset shoot will be a perfect option.

The sunset photo shoot can begin in the late afternoon to capture some more vibrant-color pictures.

The shoot in the afternoon is often offered with the sunset shooting. In the afternoon we can still get some vibrant colors but the sun is lower and less tiring. Sunset is a good continuation to get some romantic, soft pictures and beautiful portraits.

Boat Trips

For a photography trip by boat, the morning is as good as the afternoon. Your photographer will be perfectly able to get some vibrant blue/green colors especially with drone pictures and wilderness shoots.

What is the best duration of your photo shoot on Bora Bora?

The duration of your photography project depends on a few primordial criteria:

  • the kind of event (wedding, honeymoon, romantic elopement, editorial, fashion, family photo sessions, etc.)
  • your tastes and needs
  • your budget

Bora Bora Wedding Photographer

Bora Bora is an incredible place to get married. You can be tempted to organize an intimate marriage. You can also come to celebrate and enjoy with your family and friends.

Depending on your wishes and budget, your photographer will plan with you your photography project. It can cover only the intimate ceremony and after-wedding photo shoot. It can also last a few days to get some once-in-a-lifetime keepsakes from Bora Bora. Your photographer will accompany you and your guests before the ceremony, during special activities (boat trips, adventure walks, romantic dinners, sunset time...) and after-wedding fashion and couple photo sessions.

A professional Bora Bora photographer can offer some ready-made packages that can be modified and adapted to your plans. They can also offer a custom package if your wedding needs special care and unique services. You should contact your photographer to get more information and plan your special day with them.

Honeymoon, and other occasions (wedding anniversary, portraits, family Bora Bora photo shoot)

Depending on the results you would like to obtain, you can plan a 1-hour, 90-minute, or 2-hour photo shoot in your hotel or on the main island of Bora Bora. During a 1-hour shoot, you can reach 2 or 3 places in your resort. It is efficient and doesn’t need special engagements.

90-minute and 2-hour photography projects are the most suitable. You have enough time to reach the most beautiful spots in the resort, and you have the time to make a connection with your Bora Bora photographer. This is beneficial to make you relaxed and natural in front of the camera. You can also prepare 2 or 3 outfits for your photo shoot.

Your overwater bungalow with a view is also a great place for a photo shoot

While choosing your overwater bungalow or private villa on Bora Bora, be aware that it is also an amazing place for a photo shoot. Every resort has a selection of the best bungalows with pool, view of Otemanu Mountain, private beach and access to the ocean. If you have a possibility to book it, do not hesitate - it will be a real piece of paradise on Earth and only for you!

Drone Photography and Aerial Images 

The aerial pictures and videos from Bora Bora are amazing. French Polynesia is a really picturesque place for drones. We absolutely encourage you to treat yourself to a great and unique memento from paradise - an aerial photo shoot. You will need to contact a certified drone pilot to make it happen. The best is to plan a boat trip and reach some extraordinary secret spots on Bora Bora. You can also organize it in your resort (with special authorization). Some of them are incredible for aerial shoots.

If you have your own drone, be careful - for security reasons and privacy policies, you won’t be able to fly easily over Bora Bora: in the central zone of Bora Bora, and in the majority of hotels, flying a drone without permission is prohibited.
