No doubt you’ve spent many hours on the internet searching for a Perth wedding photographer, looking at wedding pictures, reading about how the wedding photographer operates and how the fees are charged.

Well after all that effort you will certainly want to make sure you get the most from your Perth wedding photographer. Here’s a few tips.

Planning tips for Great Perth Wedding

  1. Set up a meeting at 4-6 weeks prior to your wedding date – A face to face meeting is an opportunity to let the wedding photographer know what is important to you and for him to let you know what is possible with the day you have planned. No point in wanting photographs around the old buildings of Fremantle if your ceremony is in Joondalup and you only have an hour between the ceremony and the reception.
  2. Allow extra time on the wedding day – Hair and makeup can often take longer on the wedding day, everyone wants to do their best for the bride. Allow an extra half hour onto the preparation time prior to the photographer’s arrival time. This way once the photographer arrives he/she is making the most of the time you’ve paid them for, and you’re not stressing because things are running late.
  3. Get the bride ready first – Remember that the bride is the most important person on the wedding day. You do not want to make her wait until last and run the risk of being rushed. Always ask the makeup artist and hair dresser to have the bride ready first. That way the photographer can start with photos of the bride and as each of the bridesmaids are ready they can be included in the shoot. If the bride is left until last there is the risk of someone taking longer than expected or perhaps having something redone. Before you know half an hour has slipped by and the makeup artist is rushing to get the bride’s makeup finished. The only exception to this is if there are 5 or more bridesmaids!
  4. Have your bouquets arrive half an hour before the wedding photographer – The fresh wedding bouquets are often photographed in still life photos at home so it is nice if they can be there just prior to the photographer arriving. That way if things are running a little late the wedding photographer can take some detail shots.
  5. The bride should not always be late! The old saying that the bride is always late, is just that, an old saying! Many churches and celebrants will have an afternoon of weddings booked and the last thing they want is a bride running late. Most brides like to get a shot with their dad or the special person walking them down the aisle. To make sure you can get these shots without holding up the ceremony arrive just five minutes before the ceremony time. This way the photographer has time to get some lovely shots of the two of you as well as a few fussing and fluffing shots before the minister or celebrant has you walking down the aisle.

5 criteria a Great Perth Wedding Photographer will meet

Planning a wedding is no easy task and being choosy on your wedding day is too late.  Making sure you do your homework first will make sure you have the right photographer for your special day.

When searching for a wedding photographer in Perth or elsewhere, look for or ask these things:

  1. Attitude and conviviality – Assess the wedding photographer’s personality. You need to feel comfortable with who you choose for they’ll be with you most of your wedding day. A professional who’s tactful, has excellent people skills and is organised will help the day run smoothly and put the two of you at ease
  2. Actual wedding photographer – On the big day, will the master photographer be in charge or will one of their staff? Determine this in advance so you can meet the actual person shooting and feel confident in their presence.
  3. Previous examples of their work – The wedding photographer’s portfolio is representative of their ability and style. Whilst no two photographers are alike, their ‘eye’ is equivalent to their ‘style.’
  4. Your style – It’s important to relay to the wedding photographer what style you’re aiming for. Black and white only? Retro? Casual? Formal? Make this clear ahead of time – and take another glance at that portfolio.
  5. Cost – Considering the fact that wedding photography can be a luxury, determine what your budget is ahead of meeting the wedding photographer. Most certainly, you’ll be offered options like photo albums, extra prints, enlargements, digital transfers, wedding albums, etc.

Why it is Important to Choose an Experienced Perth Wedding Photographer

The value of experience is similar for most crafts, the longer you’ve been doing it the better you get. When choosing a Wedding Photographer in Perth ensure your photographer has wedding experience. A photographer gets better at “seeing” photo opportunities, better at seeing location opportunities, better at knowing his equipment and better at being with people.

An experienced Perth wedding photographer will give you more than a collection of images, they will bring that special and emotional day together in a story book, so that when the pages of that story book are turned the feelings and emotions of that special day come flooding back.

What Can I Expect From a Professional Perth Wedding Photographer

The type and range of services offered will vary between Perth wedding photographers. It’s up to you to decide the type of photographic coverage you want on your wedding day. Professional wedding photographers will offer a full coverage from the “getting ready” stage to the “good-byes” at the end of the night. Of course if you want your wedding photographer to work 10 or 12 hours be prepared to pay for it. Generally a wedding day coverage will start at the bride’s home prior to the ceremony and finish as the reception starts. This would usually be 6-8 hours coverage.

Although the wedding day is the grand finale after considerable preparation for the bride and groom, the wedding day is just the beginning for the wedding photographer. A professional wedding photographer will offer a range of options including custom printed images, custom styled and made wedding albums, assistance in image selection, and professionally printed images and much more.

Be prepared for your professional photographer to take a great interest in what you have planned for your wedding day, the more they know the better the job they can do for you. A professional wedding photographer is a craftsman who will take pride in the service and quality product he/she hands over to you.
