Perth Wedding Photographer - Engagement Shoot

You’re engaged now and you’re already thinking down the road about hiring your Perth wedding photographer, and you really want to find a way that you can work with your photographer and get to know them better. This can be done very easily by choosing a wedding photographer that can begin the process by taking your engagement photos. You see, allowing a wedding photographer to begin the relationship process by taking your engagement photos will allow you both to work together and get to know each other on a professional basis.

You can experience how the wedding photographer works with you and others as well is getting adjusted to the step-by-step photography process. What this will also do is allow you to express any feelings regarding the picture taking process, how it’s done, and any changes that may need to be made. All of these things are important because down the road you will be rewarding yourself for making the right choice and the right decision.

Many people do not take advantage of this process and what happens is they end up with a photographer that doesn’t work well with them or others. Normally when this happens, more times than not, it’s at the wrong time, and changes will need to be made hastily. This does not need to be the case because, you can get your wedding photographer involved early on in the process, which will allow you to get to know them really well and you will understand their needs as well as yours.

Choosing a wedding photographer that can take your engagement photos will also give you the chance to view their past work and research their experience. Of course when choosing a wedding photographer you want to choose a professional, so choosing someone that is an accredited member of AIPP  will be to your best interest. These are experienced professionals that will be available when it comes time for choosing the right Perth wedding photographer. There are many different wedding photographers available and choosing the right one to work for you is best done early on in the planning process.

Benefits for you choosing an AAPP or AIPP member

Your wedding date is quickly approaching and you’re getting kind of confused as far as the benefits are concerned over hiring a professional wedding photographer that is a member of AAPP or AIPP or a wedding photographer that’s not. For some people this can be difficult because they don’t know the difference between a professional and nonprofessional photographer. This post will talk about the benefits of hiring a Perth wedding photographer vs. a nonprofessional photographer.

aipp-wedding-photographerA non professional photographer relies on experience and information from their past, and more times than not, word-of-mouth. For the most part this has worked and will continue to work for some provided they are delivering good quality service. What we’re finding is more and more startup photography businesses will call themselves professional because they do have professional cameras, maybe some professional lighting, and in some cases portfolios that contain good quality photographs.

Then there is the accredited member of AAPP or AIPP. This is a photography company that has gone through great lengths for education, experience, and the skill needed for their craft. Not only have they gone through the education process to acquire the skills and experience, but they have joined an elite community of accredited professionals in an institution that is dedicated to photography. These business owners understand what it means to provide service and quality to their customers whether in their community or abroad. They are held to a different standard, and they also function on a code of ethics that is unequal to any nonprofessional business in the same market.

When choosing a wedding photography service that is not a part of the AAPP or AI PP membership, in most cases you’re purchasing a service that is not backed or monitored by an industry standard. Choosing a Perth wedding photographer that is a member of AAPP or AIPP will ensure that you get everything you ask for in a wedding photographer and more.

Look for the AAPP or AIPP badge.

Choose a wedding slideshow for that personal touch

Getting married and looking for that great idea to send the reception to a new level? Want to add that fun factor to the room? How about a wedding slideshow to entertain the guests and add that important personal touch?

From an informal show of the preparations in the lead up to the wedding, to a more formal arrival at the church or wedding office, I can host a magnificent wedding slideshow.

A bride’s wedding day is very special, from the makeup to the final fitting of the dress, to the entry into the limousine and arrival at the church. However only family and friends are usually present at these important parts of the bride’s day. I can bring the fun and fury of the wedding day to the assembled guests in a slideshow format. What better way to entertain the assembled guests as they sit down to the dinner and desserts!

Here at we specialise in wedding slideshows. Not only can I  host the slideshow but I also have quality projectors for hire if necessary. If you prefer, the slideshow can be transmitted via existing TV screens at the reception.

Any major event has its glitches and even hilarious outtakes. From the chat and organisation of the makeup and hair styling to the adjusting of the bridal dress as you prepare to step into the limousine or car. I can capture these beautiful and fun moments and project them at the wedding reception as part of the celebration.

I am also flexible and can host and run the wedding slideshow at various times to suit your preferences.

When to host the wedding slideshow

  • As the guests arrive at the reception centre. I can run the wedding slideshow for you on existing TV monitors or via my own projector.
  •  During other entertainment. I can run the wedding slideshow as a background to enhance existing entertainment.
  • When guests sit down to eat. You have the guests’ attention as they sit down and begin their meal.
  • Following dinner and desserts. Perhaps the best time to run the wedding slideshow with commentary as you have the guests’ full attention.

You may wish the wedding slideshow to have a focus on fun and entertainment, perhaps even containing a few embarrassing glitches for the bride in the preparations. Is there a better way to relax and give the guests a laugh or two? I can help capture the fun and laughs of the preparations of the wedding and bring them to the reception via a classic wedding slideshow that you can treasure for many years to come.
