Affordable Wedding Photography in Sydney
– How to find your wedding photographer –
I would like to share this “Non-Cool ” story with you all today.
Since I have been photographing weddings since 1996 (20 years go! ), I meet so many couples. When I say “many”. I am talking about over 1,500 couples.
Every year, around 8 – 10 couples comes to me AFTER their weddings with different photographers saying something like…
” Hi Katsu, we should have booked you for our wedding, our photos turned out to be terrible with this xxx photographer… Have a look… I would like to put my dress on again so we can do the photos around the park with you. Is it possible?”
I still get shocked when I hear from people like this. But now every year I get these kinds of messages from poor couples at least 8 – 10 times a year , sometimes more.
I always ask them how it happened after all those research to find the right photographer for their special day?
Usually they say……
“We thought that we booked him / her but we booked them…. We saw some great photos on their website, hanging some beautiful weddings photos on the wall at their fancy studio but those photos were taken by someone who used to work there for many years go we found out later….”
“We were told that we will have 2nd or 3 rd photographers for FREE plus their main photographer. So we have booked them. Then we have received so many photos but none of them were good. Almost every single photo, their photographers are in the background. The main photographer was too busy to train them and missed so many great opportunities.”
When you choose your wedding photographer, you gotta make sure who is coming to your wedding, knowing compare what you are comparing with, ask your photographer to show their whole set of a wedding not some good ones from all different weddings.
That is my tip for the day!
