If you had to compile a list of the individual factors that make a perfect wedding what would
you include? You might say that it needs a great venue, delicious food, a stunning wedding
dress, a beautiful cake, and so on. All those things can contribute to a great wedding and,
some might say, if one were omitted then the wedding itself would be missing something.
One thing you certainly don’t want to overlook is a professional wedding photographer and
videographer; without them your special day will not be captured in the three c’s: chicly,
candidly, and completely.

Melbourne wedding photographer or videographer is believing that it is unnecessary,
deciding that one of the wedding guests can just film the wedding from their iPhone or
personal camera. This is a mistake unless the person offering to do this is a professional with
wedding photography experience, as there is no guarantee the photos will be shot on
appropriate equipment. Not to mention issues regarding whether the guest is committed to
working throughout the day, has a keen eye for great photo opportunities, knows how to
effectively frame photographs so that there is a clear focal point that the eye is drawn to, and

commissioning the services of a professional wedding photographer or videographer is like
that scenario, as without them you have no assurance that your special day will be preserved
forever through beautiful pictures that capture the range of emotions the bride and groom
experienced on their special day.

needed to produce photos of a professional standard have been considered. The
services of a professional photographer bring so much more to the table than
someone’s time and equipment. It brings you a professional eye, skilled in finding and
creating ideal photo opportunities, someone who understands how to ensure the
individual elements within the frame all complement each other, someone who knows

wedding photographers can do much more than simply providing the couple with
amazing photos of their day; they can also discuss some of the available ways these
memories can be delivered, and establish the preferences of the couple. Whether it be
a gorgeous coffee-table book, a short wedding video over which plays the couple’s
favourite song, or a collection of photos highlighting the special events of the day in a
mixture of traditional and hip post-modern stylings, a professional wedding
photographer works to understand your needs, and then produces high-quality work
that exceeds your expectations.
Continue to work on your photos after the wedding day, to ensure that they are
presented to you as beautifully as possible. The work of a professional wedding
photographer does not stop once the ceremony is over. After, they will examine their
