HOW WOULD I
SHOOT YOUR WEDDING?
I'M ALL ABOUT THOSE CANDID SHOTS.
Canid simply means 'taken informally' or 'unposed'. Unless you're also a part-time model you probably don't want to be standing around all day posing. You want to focus on enjoying your day. Having fun with your lover and partying with all your guests. I'll weave in and out your day capturing natural moments as they happen. Yes, there's always room for a couple formal shots with the folks but for the most part you won't even notice I'm taking photos. You don't want to feel awkward on your day. My candid approach means you can relax and have some fun.
I'm pretty damn chilled.
I don't believe in bridezillas. Your day should be all about the love. Love is patient, kind & humble. Love is to be enjoyed, not rushed. You don't want to be stressed on your wedding day. My flexible and relaxed nature means you can chill the heck out. Even if things go wrong. Or the Melbourne weather turns on you. I'll go with the flow and help you relax. More joy. Less stress. Simple.
I like to party.

A line stolen from Hot Rod the movie. I love having fun whilst capturing beautiful timeless photos for you. Just because marriage is a serious commitment doesn't mean it has to be boring day. Marrying your best friend should be a day filled with laughter. Oh and if you find me on the dance floor I'll pull some pretty rad shapes. guaranteed.
How do i choose the
A good photographer is a combo of sweet skills & great company
Yes. Your photographer should have sweet skills. They should be a creative genius behind the lens. Using their knowledge and technical expertise to capture every aspect of your day. But having rad photography skills isn't enough. They need to be great company.
Not only do you and your lover need to feel comfortable. So do all your guests. Your photographer should be able to join in with the bridal party banter and help everyone have fun. Don't make the mistake of choosing a photographer who will kill your vibe. It's an intimate day. Choose someone who you'll gel with.
Make sure you dig their style
Photography as a creative expression takes on many different forms. Throughout your search you'll come across buzz words like 'story-telling', 'natural', 'laid-back', 'documentary'. Forget the words for a minute. Make sure you like what you see. Ask your photographer about their approach, read their reviews. If you don't want to be posed all day long then choose someone who's a little more relaxed and natural. It's that simple.
And I don't mean the video recording device. What I want to tell you is this: hiring a pro means hiring someone who thinks about 'what if everything went wrong'. What happens in an emergency and they can't rock up? What happen's if their camera breaks? Or their memory cards fail? The truth is the list could go on. A professional photographer's job isn't just taking good photos. They are business owners. It's their job to cut out the risk and assure you everything will be fine. They have insurance. They create backups of all your files. They have people to call in case of an emergency. As enticing as your offer from Uncle John and his brand new camera is - it simply isn't worth the risk.
