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.

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.

Portrait Wedding Photographer

Portrait Wedding Photographer

What does this photographic style look like in action on the weeding day? For a portrait wedding photographer, the wedding day looks very much like that of the photojournalist. Photography starts in the dressing rooms where the coverage is mostly journalistic, with some arranging of details, shots and a few posed portraits if the location is good and the bride is willing.  Before the ceremony is a groups photo session that uses the same quick, low-key approach as the photojournalistic style. The ceremony is covered in a purely photojournalism style with no interference from the photographer like me.

The reception is mostly photojournalistic style , but any small group shots that the couple wants are accommodated. At some point in the evening, the photographer and the couple sneak off for a portrait shoot, which gives this style the name portrait wedding photography.

The photographers scouts out the best locations in advance so that the session flows quickly from one prime spot to the next and back to the reception before anyone even notices they were gone.

If you are planing to have your wedding in Sydney’s winter, make sure you start your ceremony around 2pm latest, as the sun sets early during this time.

Current Tends

Current Tends

Many of the most sought-after and highly photographers in the business today use this blend of styles to create exciting images for the biggest stars and celebrities around the globe. Although they often command prices in excess of $10,000 per wedding. They seem to have no shortage of clients that think their services are well worth the rates they charge.

The celebrity excitement is boosting the popularity of the style among clients, but the combination is catching on rapidly with new photographers as well. Most young photographers coming into the field today are adopting the portrait journalism style and if that trend continues, it will soon outpace the traditional style, which is still the most common in the industry today.

I have noticed that most my my clients book me because they see my work on my website and facebook fan page. They say,my style is very natural, candid and not pose too much. That’s what they like and that is actually my style. Obviously, I do traditional style also when I photograph family photos, friends photos or group photobut other than that, a lot of time, they don’t even realise that I have been photographing them as I am a very discreet wedding photographer in Sydney.

The Wedding Day

The Wedding Day

The photojournalism typically starts shooting in the dressing rooms and continues late into the evening. Capturing images of all the big moments as well as the smaller details.
Anything that catches the photographer’s interest is captured along with anything that photographer feels may be even mildly important to the bride and groom. Catching every event is important; every smile, every tear, nothing is too small and everything is fair game because the photographer is being paid to tell the whole story of the day. Of course the goal is to tell the story in a way that is quite a lot more than simple documentary . Beautiful, upstaged images are the trademark of this style (which is same style as mine)

How many images does it take to tell the whole story??  The actual number of images depends largely on the wedding but the range is from 400-1000 images per photographr per day I believe.
In Sydney, the sunset early in winter. I always recommend the couples to start their ceremony around 2pm, 3pm so we will have enough time to do the location photo shoot after the ceremony. This is where we show our skills and the couples will like the photos from the location shoots.

7 mistakes to avoid when planning a party

7 mistakes to avoid when planning a party

When you are planning a party for whatever event that in the works, you definitely desire that it will go as smoothly and successfully as possible. Usually though, there are some mistakes that people make when planning the party that ultimately lead to an unsuccessful day. Some oversights may seem minor at the planning stage but they lead to little enjoyment of the day for you and your guests. Below are some 7 mistakes that you need to avoid if your wish is for a satisfactory event;

1.     Planning without a guest

list; this will usually have the effect that you do not send invites to all those who should be coming to the birthday or graduation celebration. You might miss out on inviting an important person. Have someone help you come up with the guest list.

2.     Sending late invitations

and giving insufficient information to invited guests; obviously, you need to give invited guests sufficient time for them to plan for attending the party. A month or three weeks on average is neither too early nor too late. Ensure that the invitation bears such details as the venue and simple directions to find it, the time of commencement of the party, contacts to reach you by in case of any eventuality, what you expect them to bring along and the theme of the event if it needs to influence their choice of dressing.

3.     Failing to meet the needs of invited guests; in your organisation of the party, you will have to consider the guests who will be coming and meet their needs as much as possible. For example, children will need a different set-up from that which adults invited to an engagement party will require. Knowing what your guests will need will inform several decisions that you make. Failure to adhere to this may result in uncomfortable guests.

 

4.     Not making early arrangements for all necessary equipment, help and location; if you will need sound systems, ensure that you secure them early enough. Catering services all need to be booked early enough. If the event will be held away from your home, be sure to book it before sending invitations.

 

5.     Failing to request for response to your invitation; do not leave out the ASVP section in your invitation. Give clear contacts for them to confirm attendance or otherwise. This will help you make proper arrangement for sufficient food and drinks even if a few fail to respond.

 

6.     Failing to pick a theme; having a theme will help you with the planning.  Your invited guests will also know how to attend the party when they know the theme of the day, however simple it is.

7.     Not having back up plans for the day in case something fails; you need to have an idea how entertainment will be handled should your sound system fail. If you will be hosting the party outdoors, it would be wise to remember that rain can pour at any time. The success of a party will be determined right from the planning stage. You will need to have help if you are to avoid all possible mistakes.

The Wedding Day

The Wedding Day

On the wedding day, the photography session often starts with a half hour of setup times where the photographer set up two or more studio lights with umbrellas. This is in preparation for the formals or family group shots. If the alter area is acceptable, it is used as the background, if not s large studio backdrop may be set up. At large weddings, two or more of these sets maybe set to up to work at the same time. The family and wedding party file in for group pictures. This portion of the shoot often requires 1 hour or more to get the many different combinations of the bride and groom with the wedding party and all the relatives attending. Each shot is arranged to very exacting standards. By the end end, the bride and groom are frequently complaining of sore facial muscles from so much smiling and laughing on their wedding day. It’s common for guests to complain about how long the photographer took even though it was the bride who insisted on the large shot list.
