Choosing a wedding photographer to express your style

July 26, 2012

Entrusting a stranger to capture the spirit of one of the most important days of your life is not something to be taken lightly. You’ll be looking for a professional whose style you like, whose prices are within your budget, and who will be able to bring out the best in you. Fortunately, when it comes to wedding photography in Sydney, there are many talented professionals working in the industry. To make your search for a wedding photographer a little easier, it helps to focus on a few essential characteristics.

Photographic style

It’s important to find a photographer whose artistic style appeals to you. If a friend’s wedding pictures impressed you, ask for the name of the photographer. Do some internet searches for wedding photographers working in your area, and visit their websites.

You’ll find galleries and portfolios of their work, and a quick peek should be enough to allow you to decide whether you want to find out more. After doing a bit of research, you be able to put together a list of photographers whose work inspires you.


Next, you’ll need to find out which of these photographer’s wedding packages are within your price range. It’s time to go back to the websites on your list to check out their prices and eliminate those whose packages are beyond your budget.

While you’re looking at prices, take note of what you get for each package, such as the number of albums, the number of pages in each album, and how many hours of photographer’s time are included.  If you really, really love a particular photographer’s work, you might want to consider a basic set of photographs, rather than the more ambitious package that you first had in mind. Sometimes, quality is better than quantity.


By now you will have whittled down your list to few names of likely contenders. It’s time to meet them before making your final choice. Meeting wedding photographers is a chance to see more of their work, talk about your expectations for your wedding photos, and discuss special requirements you might have, such as pre-wedding shoots, digital albums or extra albums. It’s also an opportunity to get to know the photographer a little bit, and see if you feel at ease with them.

For your photographer to bring out the best in you, and capture warm, natural images, it’s essential that you’ll feel comfortable working together on the day. It’s likely to feel a little strange to be in front of the lens for several hours, and you need an experienced photographer who helps you to feel at ease and dispel those wedding-day nerves.

In making your choice, it’s important to give high priority to a photographer’s personal attributes. Look for someone who listens to your views, is flexible about your special requirements and – most importantly – is fun to work with.

Discovering the best photographer for your wedding is a very personal choice. The trick to finding a photographer who will do justice to your unique day is to be sure that you are totally comfortable in each other’s company.
