It is OK to be fussy. I say it should be more than OK when you are paying someone to produce your wedding photos. It should be law. Your wedding photos must be just what you had in mind. After all, these wedding photos are for You to enjoy.
It doesn’t matter what anyone else likes. They can have their say when they get married.
The great advantage for a Byron Bay Photographer is that we have so many magic locations. Beaches, headlands, rivers, waterfalls, streams, mountains, rain forest, gardens and plantations. So many great streets around Ballina, Byron Bay, Ewingsdale, Bangalow, Lennox Head – the list goes on. No wonder there are more than 1000 weddings and elopements in Byron Bay every year!
I spent years shooting landscapes and took on industrial photo jobs but wanted to photograph people. And what could be more satisfying than covering a wedding day.
Weddings are fast paced. Taking on weddings meant I could create images that move people. There is the joy and the emotions but there would be no room for error.
A Diploma of Professional Photography was the lever to start a Byron Bay Photographer business. I started cheap but didn’t care so long as I was getting amongst it. Now I look back now and realise that I have had so much pleasure from a truly enjoyable journey.
The best bit is that there is plenty more to come!
