Wedding Photographers?

By Gillian 9 August 2012 22

Hi – Getting married (obviously), early next year and wondering if the collective RiotAct Hive Mind had any ideas about good photographers in Canberra?  The array of possibilities on Google is exhaustive and very complicated as are the prices and one doesn’t want to shell out that amount of money without being sure of the service!

Ideally we’re looking for someone to stay with us through the day, but we don’t want extras (albums etc), just digital copies of all the photos so we can print at our leisure.

Any experiences good or bad as well as pricing would be really appreciated!

I’m going to recommend van dang… This guy was so great for our wedding. The whole day it was raining but be managed to work around it and get some stunning shots. The guy loves what he does and goes to extreme lengths to get the perfect shot. He actually laid down on the wet ground as he wanted to get the perfect shot. From the day we met him he was so lovely and just made you feel comfortable. If you aren’t comfortable with your photographer then your day will be horrible. This guy is the best and I hope someone goes by this forum and has a look 🙂

As a photographer in Canberra I can suggest that you chose an Australian Institute of Professional Photography member and that whomever you use has a contract and are insured, have back-up cameras if one fails, that they always archive all your images just in case, knows Canberra, and is experienced so to anticipate any circumstance on the day. Cheapest isnt always best and I ceratinly feel that you must have a great rapport with whomever your chose because apart from each other they will most likely be the one person you spend most time with on the day. Congratulations and best of luck!
