Wedding photography is the most important investment you make in all of your wedding planning.
The images created by the artist you select completely flavour and colour the memory of your big day. In years to come, family members who have not yet been born will insist on seeing your wedding photographs.
The joy, love and excitement of your wedding day must be captured by a professional photographer. Albums and prints are investments that should be of the highest quality.
Why Choose a Professional Wedding Photographer?
Wedding photography is a very unique niche in the photography industry. Unlike specialist photographers who have 100% control of their subjects and light 100% of the time, a wedding photographer cannot “re-shoot” or reschedule for inclement weather. (Especially a Melbourne wedding photographer!)
A wedding photographer cannot make use of heavy lighting setups. A wedding photographer must also be an architectural photographer and a landscape photographer. They must be a commercial venue photographer and a food photographer. A wedding photographer must also be an excellent portrait photographer, be capable of working indoors, outdoors, at sunset, and on a dancefloor.
As such, all of these elements require specific knowledge, experience, expertise and top-of-the-line equipment for consistent results that make your celebrations shine!
Your Special Day, Remembered
Wedding planning incorporates a huge number of elements. You’ve spent months on the artistic details such as jewellery, flowers place settings and the dress. Family and friends have come from interstate, sometimes overseas to share your celebration. There are so many important moments that can’t be repeated or rehearsed. Once in a lifetime opportunities for generations of family members to gather together and celebrate. So much time, effort and love go in to creating your perfect celebration. It stands to reason that you need a professional to properly capture such treasured memories.
Your Perfect Wedding Photographer
Your perfect wedding photographer is one that combines all of these elements with your artistic desires. First and foremost, you must be in love with your wedding photographer’s style. They need to be able to demonstrate to you that they will deliver the results you are after time and again.
The perfect photographer will keep things rolling, solve unexpected hiccups throughout the day, ensure that you pause to enjoy the moment and that you have even more fun than you expected.
You need a wedding photographer who has the experience and desire to help create your vision and create stunning photographic art. It is your vision, after all. It’s so important that you meet your wedding photographer before your wedding so that you can compare your personality and ideas. You need a photographer that knows Melbourne, and understands weddings. You need a photographer that shares your passion for creating beautiful images. Images designed to hang on walls and show off in frames, not just sit on a computer. Your wedding photographer should have modern, up to date technology and skills as well as a firm understanding of classic style.
Part of the Team
Getting along with your photographer is a must! Many people we meet with to discuss their plans are surprised to realise how much time we will spend with them on the day. For some couples, we – their photographers – are the people they will spend the most time with on the day (perhaps more than each other)!
Your perfect wedding photographer will keep things natural, relaxed, and will be cool in a crisis. It is so important that you are feeling on top of everything and confident that everything is going to be fabulous right through the whole day. This confidence will allow joy and playfulness to come through in your images.
