Newcastle Wedding Photography… Sarah and Cory

Newcastle-Wedding-Photographers_002

From what I’ve heard and seen, the Newcastle wedding of Sarah, Cory and Jax was simply gorgeous. Natalie from our Newcastle studio was the lucky photographer that had the chance to share this amazing day. Seeing as I wasn’t there, I contacted Sarah to answer some questions about her day, what worked, what didn’t and some advice for anyone else planning their upcoming wedding in Newcastle.

Central Coast Commercial Photography… solutions for a difficult situation

deep-etch-6

Commercial photography always has its challenges, especially when photographing a busy team of people that are rarely available at the same time and place.

Beauty and the Beast… wedding dance lessons from a guys perspective (part 1)

wedding-dance_01

In my experience, the bridal waltz falls into one of two categories – the “swayers” and the “dancers” – sure, both can be great: the swayers, lost in their love for each other, the enormity of the day, the release of emotion can be super romantic to witness. The dancers on the other hand are out there revelling in their moment, their day – confident, smooth, fun and exciting to watch.

What if you were a “swayer” and wanted to jump ship to the dancers? Or worse, your partner is already in the dancer category and you’d love to join their ranks on your wedding night? There’s an answer…

Will an Engagement Shoot Improve Your Wedding Photos?

Impact-Images-Engagement-photography_006

Firstly, in answer to the article heading – yes and no.

The advice I give to my couples on whether or not to have an engagement shoot depend on a few things.

  1. Were both the bride and groom at the wedding photography booking appointment?
  2. Are either of you worried or nervous about having your photo taken?
  3. Have you only ever had bad photos taken of yourself and are worried about not getting good photos?

To tackle these points, it’s important to understand that great wedding photos (or any portraits for that matter) will depend on

The Secret To Landing A Job With A Photographer

get-a-job

Are you passionate about photography, have you dreamed of working in the photographic industry – getting paid for something you love to do?

As a photographer for over 10 years and a photography business owner for most of those years, I have seen countless job applications through the mail, email, on disc and the phone – most of which I felt like throwing straight in the bin. It was plain to see that the applicants had put little thought into their approach, delivery technique or attention grabbing strategies.

Wedding Photography and Back ups… is your wedding photographer responsible?

impact-images_01

Hi everyone!

I just thought I would share this information for any other couples who have experienced this nightmare!

Our wedding photographer accidentally deleted our wedding photos, we have been absolutely devastated. We had such a perfect wedding and I designed the wedding specifically for the “LOOK”.. and it was ours and 6 other couples who lost their photos at the same time. WORST NIGHTMARE!

Four months later and we were still trying to recover them, thinking it was not possible. All the photos were on an external hard drive that had been accidentally reformatted..

How scary is that? How do you avoid this happening to you?
