Top Wedding Photographers related questions

What’s the difference between amateur and professional photography?

Professional photographers offer a professional result, thanks to professional memberships, training, equipment, and experience. Amateur or hobby photographers are often less experienced, or only practice photography as a side gig.

How do I prepare for a photoshoot?

Start by discussing your expectations with your photographer, including any props and styling requirements. Depending on the shoot, you might get hair and makeup done professionally. Arrive early to ensure you’re relaxed and so you can look your best.

What normally happens during a photoshoot?

Your photographer with go through the poses or images you want to get and discuss the flow of the session. If you have several outfits with you, they can plan the order of the shots with a break to get changed. Your photographer may instruct or position you for different poses or expressions to get the best images.

How long does a professional photoshoot take?

Express photography sessions can be as quick as 5-10 minutes, but if you need a longer session, or multiple outfits and locations, it’s best to allow a couple of hours.

When should you book a photographer for a wedding?

The sooner, the better. Whether your wedding is a year away or in a few weeks, as soon as you find a wedding photographer you like who’s within your budget, book them. This stops someone else from snapping them up on your date, so you can never book too early.

What should you look for in a wedding photographer?

Look at their portfolio to get a sense of their photography style and see if it fits with your wedding vision. Check what’s included in their prices and packages (number of hours of photography, the number of photos you can expect, editing services, etc.) and if possible, set up a phone call or meeting to make sure you’re a match.

What does wedding photography include?

To get the wedding photography you want, it’s important to look carefully at the service offered. Each photographer has their own way of working. You might find differences in the length of time bookings last, the number of photos you get, and the editing process. Here’s what you may experience when researching and booking photography for your wedding:


Consultation and engagement shoot

To get the best photos on your special day, your photographer might arrange a meeting or call, or even an engagement shoot. This is an opportunity to get used to each other, share ideas about the type of photos you want (so you can create a shot list) and practice some poses. Your photographer will also need details about your venue, the day’s running order (so they can plan on being in the best position at all the right moments), and details for the family and bridal party shots.


On the day

Booking your wedding photographer (or photographers) for the entire day will mean they’ll begin capturing key moments in the hours before your ceremony. They may shoot you getting your hair and makeup done, dressing for the occasion, and capture images of your accessories such as your shoes, bouquet and jewellery. They may also do a “first look” shoot of the bride and groom, or photos of the bride and groom with their wedding parties and family members before the ceremony. Of course, you don’t have to have this. You may only want your wedding photographer to shoot from the ceremony onwards, and that’s okay, too.


Wedding photoshoot

After the service, your photographer will ask you and your partner to leave your guests for a short while so they can take photos of just the two of you. This is your official wedding photoshoot. Before calling you away, your photographer will have scoped out the most picture-perfect locations around your venue (taking lighting and backdrops into consideration) and will lead you there for your photos (whether you walk or drive). Once they have the photos they want, you’ll rejoin friends and family for any group shots. Depending on how many hours you’ve booked your photographer for, they’ll remain at the celebrations to capture all the special moments throughout the speeches, meal, and reception.


Photo editing and delivery

Most wedding photography services include photo editing and retouching. The number of edited images you get depends on the package offered by your photographer. Editing involves enhancements like colour balancing, adding effects, and touching up the image so it’s picture-perfect. Photos are delivered using a secure online gallery, on a USB, or sometimes both. Once you get your photos back you might also ask your photographer about other services such as custom album printing, canvas printing, or getting digital prints.
