Picture Perfect Wedding Photos
Photography is one of the things I had always planned to splurge on for our wedding.
Photography is one of my passions, and as all my friends will vouch, I am always the one with my camera taking photos of every single event. My friend Belinda even calls me ‘the documenter of our lives’, as I’ve got archives of photos covering decades of fun.
So, of course I want Sydney’s best photographer to document the biggest day of our lives!
The list of amazing photographers in Sydney is pretty overwhelming. Among them I found the most incredible photography studio, Inlighten Photography.
As soon as Andy and I walked into Inlighten’s gorgeous studio, we were besotted. The stylish décor, with its sumptuous atmosphere and artistic photos adorning the walls, together with the warm approach of the studio manager Nancy, really made a fantastic impression.
We were introduced to our photographer Lucas, who showed us a slide show of his work, as well as some actual photo albums from former clients. We recognised some of his photos from the Inlighten Photography ads in the wedding magazines, and were completely blown away. Every single photo was a work of art.
Andy and I are quite decisive people, and so we booked them immediately for our wedding. We were so impressed by their personalised approach, together with their artistic vision and quality of work, that we couldn’t image anyone else capturing our perfect day.
Now, our next job is creating a list of all the ‘must-have’ photos that we want taken. Andy and I have spoken to many married friends, who have huge regrets around spending thousands on photography, only to get their pictures back to find there were no photos of their special family members, bridal party and overseas friends. To avoid this, our photographer advised making a list of all the essential people that we need photographed, which we will go through in our next meeting.
We’ve also assigned one person from each of our families (Andy’s sister Rebecca and my Dad) to help round up these people on the day to get them into a photo.
It’s probably the most amount of money you’ll ever spend on photography, so you want to make sure you capture all the right people!
Have you found your photographer yet? How did you choose them? Have you made plans about the sorts of photos you want taken?
