It's not unusual these days for weddings to be tailored to particular couple's needs. Convention, as we know it, for some has relaxed. As photographers, we need flexibility and creativity to move with the ebb and flow of the conditions such as the location, the weather and the time of day.
Sure, we have ideas about what looks good, but in the end we might be called to take photos in Albert Park, in a last-minute decision three days before the wedding, where we have trees as a backdrop, and for the next we are in Barry Curtis Park in Botany Downs where a skateboarding area becomes the backdrop. Here the couple are sitting on steps right next to a skateboard park with young children playing in the background, and skateboarders doing their tricks nearby!
And people have different budgets too. That’s important. Most people want to be left with lasting memories without having to pay a fortune. What makes Jasmin and me different as wedding photographers is that we can usually find something special no matter where we are, using the environment and the conditions as a source of ideas. It's part of the fun – although it can certainly be a challenge.
We love a well-prepared wedding where we make a list in advance of all the critical photos, have the traditional set-up like pre-wedding shots of the bride, the rings, the shoes and the dress … but we love the casual and low-key approach just as much. In fact, we think it's our speciality.
