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!

Recommended wedding photographer in Sydney

Recommended wedding photographer in Sydney

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!

Destination Wedding Photographer

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.

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.
