My answer for this is “Contact us when you set your special date!”

Depending on the months how busy we get, but usually we get booked our most of the weekends 5 – 12 months in advance. Just to give you some idea, it’s February 6th today,
in the last 7 days, we have confirmed one wedding in Sydney for October this year, another one for November and another one in Thailand for January next year already.

When you look for your wedding photographer(s), do you choose them based on…..?

Some people might choose them based on the price, numbers of photographers you will have on your wedding day, packages, style, photo studio near your place, connection with your photographers, your friends might be the photographers or all of above.

It would be nice if you could find your photographer(s) who can photograph your wedding with the style you like, affordable, great package, the one has good review and free album etc. But it’s always not the case.

When my clients choose me as their wedding photographer, they usually happy with my wedding photography style (which is called Documentary style: natural, candid and new modern), packages and the connection between myself and my clients which I think it’s very important.

It’s February 3rd today. I have been receiving a lot of wedding bookings for the end of this year already.  If you are engaged and getting married in Sydney or Thailand, please contact me asap! Especially if you are planing to have your wedding in October and November, I usually get booked out all the weekends!

Are you planning to have your wedding in Thailand and looking for your wedding photographer?
Well, you have came to the right place. Organising wedding from overseas is not the easiest things to do since English is not commonly spoken in Thailand whether you are in Bangkok, Krabi, Pattaya, Phuket, Pipi or any other beautiful resort islands that you are planning to have your special day.

The best way to start organising your wedding in Thailand is to book your hotel where you will be staying and usually the hotels will have the wedding packages depending on your style, number of guests or budgets.

However, most of the wedding packages does not include wedding photographers here in Thailand. So once when you book your hotel and wedding venue, you will need to book your wedding photographer. There are some local photographers here in Thailand but most of them are only trained to photograph formal photos with your family and guests after your ceremony. (Yes, one of those photos where everyone stands in a line)

We obviously photograph those formal photos for your great memories with your family and guests also. But if you are after something more natural, candid, stylish and artistic photos, you might want to make sure to book a professional wedding photographers like us.

Our wedding photographer Katsu Nojiri has over 15 years of experiences in wedding photography in Sydney, Australia, Tokyo, Japan and here in Thailand.
Katsu is an award-winning wedding photographer based in Sydney and Thailand.

Getting ready on your wedding day

Getting ready on your wedding day

It’s your wedding day. You may start super early to get your hair, make-up for your big day.
For your hair and make-up, I always recommend all my clients to book a (or two) hair & make-up artist to come to your place (or hotel room) rather than you got the hair salon.
So you will have more time to do things for yourself in the morning and wedding photographer like me can photograph you are getting ready with your bridesmaids and your family.

Here is the question that that I always get asked:

When is the best time for my photographer to arrive?

I always suggest all my clients to allow me about 1 hour  to photograph you are getting ready in the room.  Let’s say, you will leave your place or hotel room at 1pm, I will come to you at midday.
And here is another important thing that I want all my clients to know.

By the time when I arrive to you room, please be ready completely!!

Ok, maybe, you do not need to wear your dress until I arrive, so I can photograph your wedding dress only but I don’t wanna see you getting your hair or make-up when I arrive.
That needs to be completed when I arrive!!

So please tell your hair & make-up artist to be finished their work and leave the room when I arrive for the best result!

Well, this is kinda silly question to be asked (although I have never been asked) as I am the recommended wedding photographer in Sydney! HA!
But I can say that, in my career as a wedding photographer since 1996, I have never received a complain from any of my clients. I usually photograph somewhere between 50-70 weddings per year just myself and a bit more if I include the ones that I did for Japanese wedding agency where do 3-5 weddings per day on the weekends.

Last year, I had about 5 different couples came to me after their wedding with DIFFERENT photographers. They contacted me after their wedding saying how bad their photos they received from those photographers. A few couples showed me some them and I must say that they were pretty bad, unfortunately. Basically, they wanna put their dress again and do the photos only at the place like Domain and Hyde park with me. Poor brides….

To avoid those problems, please make sure you talk to the photographer(s) are coming to your wedding.Ask him/her to show your his/her works not THEIR photos that they work at. This is usually where they usually mess up.
Having 2 photographers are fine but nothing more than 2 unless you want all your photos with those photographers as backgrounds.

I prefer to photograph the weddings alone rather than having second photographer or assistant. Especially the way that I photograph the wedding are natural, candid, documentary style, I don’t need other photographers as I photograph the moment and a lot of time, they are in the way. I have been photographing over 15 years as an award-winning photographer, I have my own style and all my clients are happy about it. :)
I am one of those discreet photographers on my client’s wedding day, also. :)

It’s almost February 2015, and all my booking inquiries that I am currently getting are September – December 2015. If you would like to secure me, please contact me early!
Yes, I am now based in Sydney and Bangkok, Thailand as a destination wedding photographer. Please check my availability early!

Wedding Photography in Thailand.

Just a bit of myself today: My style of wedding photography is best described as natural documentary style with modern portraiture. I work in a natural documentary style – generally not directing (too much) , but rather capturing moments as they unfold, and as unobtrusively as possible. I then combine this wedding photos with fun and natural portraits to create an overall picture – the story of your special day in Thailand.

My wedding photography package can include everything from the day’s first activity, getting ready and setting up to your ceremony and creative portraits until the reception and party late into the night. It’s all depends what you like and what you would like me to photograph your wedding day really.

During my time as an international destination wedding photographer here in Bangkok, Thailand, I have been very fortunate to photograph weddings for Australian actor, Miss. Universe winner, and few Japanese celebrity and perhaps the biggest compliment of all, another wedding photographers wedding!  I have also experienced to photograph a guy who is charge of Canon camera in Thailand. All the guests had Canon Cameras like mine and I felt pressure.

If you are looking for your wedding photographer (destination photographer) in Bangkok, Puckett, Pattaya, Koh-samui or any other island in Thailand or perhaps in Bali, please contact me to check my availability.

Finding a style

Finding a style that works for you.

If you are a newcomer to the wedding photography world, you may wonder where you fit in and what style you should use. You may be lucky or determined enough to land yourself in a place of employment with an experienced photographer who ants as your mentor, If so, the style you learn will certainly influence your own direction, even if only to teach you what you don’t want to do. I highly recommend working with other wedding photographers in Sydney, because this is by far the fastest way to learn the business and get more experience with people in front of your camera.

What is the best wedding photography style to choose? There is not best. Does it matter which style you choose? Absolutely!  In fact, I would say, that for every wedding photographers in Sydney out there is only one best style – the right right one for you depends on your personality and which style you are comfortable to photograph with.

I feel comfortable when I photograph with “Documentary Style”. Some people call it “Wedding Photojournalism” I believe the brides should be as natural as possible and photographing them the way they want, too.
