Are you getting married in Canberra, Australian Capital Territory? Who will be your Canberra wedding photographer?

Here is a list of the important things you should consider when booking a Canberra wedding photographer.

1) Style and Personality

When choosing your Canberra Wedding photographer, you are choosing more then just a photographer for your wedding day. You are hiring a wedding photographer who will be with you, your family and your guests all day on your wedding day. Personality is a huge part of the selection process and should not be overlooked in anyway.

Your Canberra wedding photographer’s personality can set the tone for your entire wedding day and your bridal party and can impact your wedding photography altogether. Your Canberra wedding photographer should be able to gel with your family and friends to capture those intimate wedding photos. After your engagement session, post wedding work and album selection, your Canberra wedding photographer should almost seem like a friend!

2) Price

While price is an important part to selecting your Canberra Wedding Photographer, it should be considered on what is included in that price. All to often I hear horror stories from brides who made a decision for their wedding photography based purely on price. When it comes to the end, your wedding photography will be all you have to remember on your wedding day. Your wedding album will be your first true family heirloom. It is highly recommended that your Canberra wedding photographer be experienced.

3) Wedding Albums

As your first family heirloom, and a long lasting memory from your wedding day; most couples choose to have a beautifully designed wedding album that your wedding photographer designs. Don’t underestimate the importance of a wedding album from your wedding day. This keepsake will allow you to remember your Canberra wedding forever.

When choosing a Canberra wedding photographer, you should look for an album that represents you and your new family. Wedding albums come in all shapes and sizes, so it is important to ask questions like: How many pages come in my wedding album? How many images can come in my wedding album? What finishes and extras can I get in the wedding photography package for my album?

4) Coverage

To truly capture the story of your Canberra wedding, it is important to know how many hours coverage is offered. I believe you cannot truly capture your Canberra wedding day unless all the moments of your wedding day is covered. After all, that is what you are hiring your wedding photographer for. Typical coverage for a wedding is 8-10 hours. Don’t feel trapped into squeezing your day into short coverage times, and allow for your Canberra wedding to be covered all day!

5) Number of Wedding photographers

How many Canberra wedding photographers are needed at your wedding? It is ideal to have two wedding photographers, this ensures that all aspects of your wedding are captured with from those intimate moments to the picture. Having two Canberra wedding photographers at your event means all your wedding photography needs can be met all while ensuring that nothing gets missed from your big day

6) Travel

Are you a Canberran couple but having a interstate or overseas wedding? Destination weddings are increasingly popular for Canberran’s getting married. With all the money spent, it is important you feel comfortable and trusting of your destination Wedding photographer. It is important to know who will be there capturing your destination wedding, so hiring a Canberra destination wedding photographer allows you to have a destination wedding photographer you trust on your big day. Destination wedding photographers need to be flexible and imaginative on the job. To be photographing in a holiday location means they need to know how to create something beautiful quickly and with what they have to work with.
