Well, you probably have read “Best Wedding Locations in Sydney” that some people have wrote but how about the wedding locations that we (wedding photographers in general) do not like?
I probably should not generalise as there are some photographers in Sydney out there that might like the locations, so I probably shouldn’t say “we”.
You probably know it but in any photography, the lighting is the most important factors for the best results. Not the models (couples), not the angle, not the compositions or not the backgrounds.
As a wedding photographer myself, I have 100% control of capturing the best results while we are having the location shoots.
How about during the ceremony?
Unfortunately, I can’t stop the ceremony because your expression on your face is not the best or you may have people walking behind during your ceremony but I can’t tell them not to do during the time. I basically need to photograph whatever it happens during the ceremony .
Same as the lighting, sometimes I know that I can do better if I could shoot from the other side but it means that you won’t have water or flower arches or Harbour Bride or Opera House as background. Instead, you will have your guests as your background which is not an ideal.
Then one bride asked me the other day if there are wedding locations that I don’t like (or hard to photograph). Then this location popped out in my head straight away.
When I meet my clients for the first consultation, there is one favour that I always.
That is to give me a lift from wherever I am starting (usually from the bride’s place or a hotel room) to the ceremony, then to the location shoot and to the reception venue.
It’s almost impossible for us to find the car park especially in Sydney’s CBD during the ceremony and location shoot.
If your wedding is Blue Mountain, Gerringong or Hunter Valley, that is fine but only when you are having your wedding in Sydney. So I won’t lose you and easy to follow you around all day to photograph your best day.
If you are planning to have your wedding in 2019/2020, please let me know early as more than half of my Saturdays in 2019 are already booked.
This might sound a bit sales pitchy but our Saturdays in 2019 are filing super super fast.
Most of weekends in 2018 are almost all booked out and now we are taking booking for 2019 and 2020.
Usually between June and August are quiet months for all Sydney’s wedding photographers but a lot of weekends up to July are already filled with a lot of weddings this year. (When am I gonna get my holidays..? Hmmm…?)
I do have a few professional photographers working for me just in case, I am already booked but on your wedding day but if you prefer me to photograph your wedding, please get in touch early!
I will be photographing a wedding in Prague in January 2019 for the first time!
Please let me know if you are planning to have your wedding around the time in Europe.
I am happy to travel!
