Which Photographer?

We hope you will love our photography and choose us. Do not compromise on quality; wedding photography is one of the most demanding and technical subjects to capture effectively. A good rapport with clients and effective time management are crucial.

Investing in a professional wedding photographer is worth every penny. Here is a good guide to follow:

  • Commence your search asap.  We are fortunate to be booked up to 2 years in advance.
  • Review a few websites to get an idea of the styles of photography.
  • Make appointments with a handful of your favourite photographers and arrange face-to-face visits.
  • Be clear on the cost of your photographs.  What is included in the price and how much will further reproductions cost?
