Hiring a professional - why it's important!


I've spent the first few days of this week talking to three beautiful brides whose weddings I am photographing over the next two months.

Photographs are going to be the one lasting memory of your special day, so hiring a professional photographer for your wedding is really important.

For a professional photographer, their job begins long before the wedding day and includes countless hours after the ceremony and reception, ensuring that images captured on the day are presented perfectly.

A professional photographer will visit the location of the ceremony, reception and special bridal party shoot to gauge the lighting at the time of the day the shots will be taken.  They will also come up with alternatives if the weather is inclement.  They will discuss themes, preferences, and ‘must-have’ shots.  They will understand when you say you want them to capture everything, but not get in the way.

A professional photographer will have back-up equipment if something fails.  They will be able to choose the best lense for each shot, they will have additional lighting if required (and will know how to use it).

A professional photographer won’t just take photographs of your wedding, but will capture the special moments, looks and the entire feeling of the day in each image.  They will turn your special day into artwork that you will want to hang on your wall forever.

After the wedding day, a professional photographer will spend countless hours editing hundreds of photographs to ensure that each and everyone one is perfect.  They will have a range of products on offer through their packages and have access to professional print labs to present to you only the best quality of prints, canvases or products.

I have a Diploma of Professional Photography and specialises in children, family and wedding photography.  I have a range of packages to suit the budget conscious couple and also those wanting a premium collection of products including prints, canvases and photobooks.
