Choosing a Sydney wedding photographer is not as easy as it seems. The choices are aplenty, and getting the correct one is the difficult part.
Nobody wants their special day ruined by amateurish pictures. With some time and thought given to this most important factor it can easily be avoided. Researching the internet and visiting different studios will give you insight into which Sydney wedding photography is best suited to your needs. It is advisable to start looking as soon as you possibly can, as the best photographers will tend to be booked up, sometimes as much as 12 months in advance.
There are no second chances with wedding photos, you can’t come back tomorrow and try again. The time you spend researching will ensure that the memories captured are those you will be proud to show around for years to come.
In Sydney word of mouth carries a lot of weight in the photography world. Just as a good studio will get great reviews, so will those that do not make good on the promises of a service they do not deliver. Whether it’s a studio or an individual, a good photographer will have been around in the wedding photos world a long time. Talk to friends and colleagues that may have recently married, ask them about their experiences. Did the pictures turn out the way they expected? The Internet has some very interesting forums with brides to be and those already married, discussing wedding pictures. Gather names and use these to search for yourself, just because one person liked what they got doesn’t mean they will have the same taste as you.
The most obvious aspect of any photographers work is the quality of the shots they take. Given the amount of choice in Sydney, you are sure to find a studio or independent that you feel you are in tune with and, are in tune with what you want. Those you are considering will be able to show you past weddings they have attended, take time looking over the work on display:
• Firstly, do you like what you see?
• Are all the pictures in focus?
• Do the poses look statuette and unnatural?
• Are the colors clear and bright?
Try to see them as another professional would look at them, do they flow and tell the story as the day unfolded? This process will take time but, it can make the difference between happy memories you are proud to show off and those you just want to hide in a drawer.
If you choose to use one of the larger studios check as to who will be there on the day, you do not want an apprentice spending half or all of the day fine tuning his skills. Get the name of the Sydney wedding photographer and ask to see his/her work. Some not so honest establishments will display a professional’s work but, that is not the same person that turns up at your wedding. Sometimes this is why a smaller firm can be better; they may have only 2 or 3 photographers and cannot allow their reputation to be hurt. And they put in the extra mile to make sure your pictures are of the best quality.
