How does your wedding photography packages works?

How does your wedding photography packages works?

This is one of the questions that I get asked when people are searching for their wedding photographers.

My packages are simple, straight forward, no catch or hidden prices.

Before I go on more details, YOU DO NOT NEED TO DECIDE YOUR PACKAGE WHEN YOU BOOK ME.

Please just message me to check my availability, then we go from that.

Anyway, back to the packages, firstly you might want to decide what you you want after your wedding.  

Let’s say A or B?

A:  All your data on USB.  
You will receive all your colour images beautifully edited on USB.
So you can print, enlarge, post them on your blog, Instagram or Facebook yourself without any additional cost.

B: All your data on USB, Premium Leather Album and a Premium Slideshow
You will receive all your colour images and black & white images on USB. (same as A)
Plus you will receive a premium leather cover album (20 pages) and a highlight slideshow.

Once when you decide A or B, you will need to decide how many hours you would like me to photograph your wedding.

Let’s say, I am starting from your hotel room (or your place) getting ready an hour before your departure to the ceremony. 

Let’s say your ceremony starts at 3pm, so maybe I start 1pm photographing you getting ready for about an hour, so that 2pm. Getting in a car and drive to the ceremony arriving 2:45pm at the ceremony.

The ceremony usually goes for 30 minutes or so, then we do group photos, family photos for about 30 minutes or so. Then we go to your favourite photo locations at the places like The Rocks, Opera House, Harbour Bridge etc until the reception starts around 6- 6:30pm.

Usually the reception party ends around 11-11:30.

Most of my clients would like me to stay till the end, then I am starting from 1pm and finishing around 11pm. So that is 10 hours.

So you can choose my 10 hours package of A or B.

That is how my wedding photography packages works.

I must say that my packages are fair and affordable. I have not changed my pricing since 1996. (which I think that it’s crazy a bit….)

I hope that you will like my work and packages that I offer!!

Please message me early if you are engages, most of my Saturday will be booked out through the year!

Photographer and Smile

Photographer and Smile

Another typical aspect of this style is that the photographer is very active and vocal about guiding the event. This can be an advantage if the couple failed to hire a coordinator. The photographer can organise and move people involved in the formals, as well as frequently ask the couple and guests to stop what they are doing and smile at the camera for a shot.

This iteration is most noticeable during the reception party as the cake cutting and first dance are often interrupted by the photographer asking the couple to look this way and smile. Although obviously very instructive, this process of stopping people for a smile is so embedded in the tradition of the style that its seen as completely acceptable. (although I try not to do this so often).

The tradition is so strong that sometimes the marriage celebrant or the DJ may actually stop the couple and tell them to look over at the photographer and smile without checking even checking with the wedding photographer.

It’s always good to remember to look at your wedding photographer when you cut the cake or during signing the form at the ceremony.

If you are looking for a nice celebrant in Sydney, how about Chris Stedman Celebrant?
He is very good!

About Wedding Photographer

About Wedding Photographer

Personality goes a long way. One of the most valuable tool you can have as a wedding photographer is the right  kind of personality. You don’t have to be the life of the party, but you should have a friendly and outgoing personality that puts people at the the ease almost immediately. If you don’t like people, or if you are impatient or easily frustrated with people that are always late and generally can not seem to get it together, then this job won’t be a good match for you. If you function well under pressure, if you are flexible enough that you won’t mind making last minute plan changes when the bride is late, and you like working with people, then this job might be a good match for you.

The last and most valuable tool that you need as a wedding photographer is knowledge. You need to develop your skills and understanding of photography to the point that taking picture is not more difficult thank walking across the room. When you seen an activity taking place, you need to move to the location that will allow you to tell the story with your camera. With practice, your eyes will tune into the types of locations that make good portrait backgrounds.

Using the Tools

Using the Tools

The tools of the trade are few. As businesses go, wedding photography in Sydney requires only a small cash outlay to get the few pieces of high quality equipment necessary for the job. Learning how to use the equipment is the real challenge, because fortunately for photographers, having the best tools does not make you a good wedding photographer. Many excellent photographer use old, beat up cameras that are much less capable than the cameras many wedding guests will be toting around during and after the ceremony. However, as you probably already know, camera don’t take pictures, photographers do.

A great wedding photographer could do better with a point and shoot than what most people can do with a top of the line digital camera.

The specific tools that each photographer uses are relatively minor part of the wedding photography business. For example, when you admire a painting by Picasso, you don’t wonder what brush he was using. The tools that he used are as irrelevant as the choice of that vision are what makes the real magic of wedding photography.

Wedding photography is very different to those of who does fashion photography or landscape. If you are looking for a wedding photographer for your wedding in Sydney,
please contact Katsu to see his availability.

How to choose your wedding photographer in Sydney

How to choose your wedding photographer in Sydney

Choosing the right wedding photographer in Sydney for your special day can be a difficult assignment.

Obviously, viewing their works are important and I recommend these tips to everyone who are looking for your wedding photographers in Sydney.

Look for someone who is obviously passion about photography (wedding photography, of course) and loves what they do.

Sadly for too many wedding photographers at your wedding is just another job over the years. They intend to fail to bring passion and love of the art into each and every wedding they capture.

Do not judge your photographer based on by some degree or by winning awards.
They get there through experience just like an airline pilot or a doctor.
(although we won some awards which is great but it’s our job to make our clients happy not the judges!)

You will also need to feel comfortable with you wedding photographers as not only you will be working with them on your big day, you might be working with them after your wedding day if you are considering to have your wedding albums made.

When you meet your photographers, ask if those photos are YOUR work or THEIR work?   You also would like to make sure that “you are going to book him / her or THEM?”
By doing this, you can avoid SOMEONE will turn up on your very special day.

From my point of view, nothing beats experience, check their review and reputation or simply contract us!

I hope that this article helps you make the right decisions about who you are going to hire for your wedding.

Great photos will become priceless and one of your most valued and treasure!

Playing with rose petals

Playing with rose petals

Rose petals are becoming popular wedding decoration.

With roses symbolising love, joy, and beauty, it does not surprise that the brides would like to include them in their special day.

In Sydney, There are a lot of companies that provide in preserved flowers that can be used for a long time without damaging.

Th rose petals have a huge variety of uses, but their main function is a natural alternative to paper confetti.

A lot of wedding venues does not allow rice shower like old days, so a lot of brides are choosing rose petals instead especially white ones.

Petals can be used in beautiful envelopes, on the tables or hair accesaries, and handed out to  family or guests when the ceremony is about to end.

Please enjoy one of my latest wedding photos that I photographed.

I really love the fact a little girl is playing with rose petals during the ceremony. So cute!
