Below is a list of Frequently Asked Questions relating to Wedding Photography:
- 1. Weddings
- 1. How much time do we need for the couples shoot?04.08.16More
The couples shoot is one part of your wedding day where we can get really creative with your photographs. The sort of pictures that you will want to hang on your living room wall. Therefore, it's essential that you set aside enough time for this. Trust us in saying that this is the one part of your wedding day that will be sacrificed if you run late (and haven't accommodated for it)- we promise you that you'll regret it later.
Ideally, a minimum of 30-60 minutes (this does not include the time to get to the location) should be set aside for your couples shoot. Otherwise we won't be able to get the images you want. Just saying.
- 2. Can you suggest locations for photos?05.08.16More
We can suggest nice places to photograph you, but if you have any places that are of significance to you, those are generally the best places for a photoshoot- because they will carry meaning when you look back on your pictures years from now. Here are some general guidelines:
- Distance: Remember the more time we spend travelling, the less time we have to take the photographs
- Private property: If it's not public property, you will need permission to be there. There are certain places that you will almost certainly NOT be able to have your photoshoot: eg. military installations, airports, train stations, malls
- Tourist attractions (like zoos, theme parks) might be possible, but bear in mind the cost of admission and the need to gain permission prior to the day (this is your responsibility). Some places in Sydney that you might not know requires a permit for wedding photography include: Botanical Gardens, Centennial Park, Olympic Park precinct. Please also remember that in crowded locations, it's really hard to not have other people in your photographs
- 3. What happens if it rains on your wedding day?11.09.16More
Nobody can control the weather- and because weddings are planned months in advance, there is no way to know whether it will rain on your special day. And you can't postpone a wedding. Bad weather can often be very stressful for the bride and groom, but here are a few tips that will make it less so:
- Back-up plan: This applies to both the ceremony & reception venues, as well as couple & family shoots. Have a think about what you will do in the worst case scenario- continuous heavy downpour
- Timeline flexibility: If there is enough leeway on your timeline, there maybe time to juggle things around if the bad weather is short-lived
- Go with the flow: Just because it's overcast or rainy, it doesn't mean the photos will stink! In fact, some amazing shots can be taken when the sky is dramatic. It all comes down to how daring you guys are, and how wet (or muddy) you're prepared to get!
