How to Plan for a Wedding in Perth – The importance of the photographer

When you plan a wedding in Perth, engaging the right photographer very early on in your planning is important. To capture your day in all its beauty, your wedding photographer will be working on a time schedule and it’s one that needs to be in synch with everything else that’s going on. It’s equally important to choose the right photographer – wedding days can be stressful enough and the last thing you want to discover is that your photographer is shall we say, a bit ordinary.

Without a skilled photographer who understands the complexities of getting the right mix of formal and candid shots for weddings, your big day might not be as memorable as you hoped it would be. We all know that when someone specialises in a particular field their skills and expertise are usually far greater than someone who has a more generalised approach. Your wedding day is a once in a lifetime event so don’t trust your memories to any photographer. And while having the aspiring photographer in the family take your wedding shots might cost less, it might also cost you your memories of the big day, and may cause a family rift if things go wrong! The chances are that you’ll be much happier with the result if you choose a Perth photographer that specialises in weddings.

Specialist wedding photographers should have an extensive range of photographs on their website so you can get a feel for the style and range of photographs they do. It’s important for you think about the type of shots you’d like and where you’d like them to be taken. A good wedding photographer will be able to suggest a range of locations that offer a good variety of scenic backdrops for your post ceremony photos.

When you’re planning your wedding, remember that travel time will need to be factored in. You need enough time to get from the ceremony to the location or locations for your photographs and then to the reception. Talk with your photographer about your scheduling for the day and where possible get their advice before you settle on your ceremony and reception times. They’ll want to take advantage of natural light conditions at the chosen locations.

Dedicated wedding photographers are usually skilled in being able to get a good coverage of your wedding without you or your guests feeling like they’ve been staring into a camera all day. Your photographer should be able to direct you supportively, set up shots quickly, and move around you and your guests in an unobtrusive way. Talking to your photographer before you finalise your wedding day schedule will ensure you get all the shots you want without being pressured for time.

It’s only when you begin to plan a wedding yourself that you realise the enormity of the task at hand. If you’re beginning to plan for a wedding in Perth, there’s no time to lose – start looking for the right wedding photographer once you’ve secured your wedding date.
