How upset would you be to find after your wedding day that your photographer didn’t capture the images you wanted? You were badly lit, your bad features were accentuated instead of your good. Your Photographer made your arms look bigger than they are, you didn’t look as slim as you felt, you had armpit fat showing over your dress, how would you feel?
That’s exactly what you can be left with if you make the wrong choice!
Choosing the best Photographer is so important if you don’t want to be tearfully disappointed after your wedding day the one day when an amateur, a friend, a relative or even some ‘professional’ Photographers just don’t cut it.
Remember, there is only one chance to get these photos no matter the pelting rain, the low lighting conditions, time restraints, the size of your bridal party, the wind, your pre planned location taken, etc, etc.
At Impact Images, we have only the very best Photographers that ALL have over 10 years of professional experience more experience than anyone else on the Coast. We are not only the most nationally and internationally awarded studio, we also boast the only Master Photographer on the Coast. If you are looking for experience and skills we have loads.
Are you aware that some professional Photographers don’t even know how to operate their cameras correctly? This is a fact! I speak regularly with Photographers and am utterly surprised to hear they shoot a wedding on automatic or semi automatic modes. They don’t know what to expect from a photo until they see it on the back of the camera, then make the necessary adjustments. If one of these photographers are capturing your day, you should be as scared as a long tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs!
Most Photographers don’t understand how to use their flash to get flattering and amazing images, instead they claim that no flash is always better or they resort back to automatic and ‘hope’ for the best. Pretty scary really, when you consider they are charging the same or more than we do at Impact.
Ever consider what happens to your wedding images after your wedding day? Would you be surprised to find that your Photographer may be sending them to India or other third world countries to have your files worked on? This is happening, and more than you think. Your images may come back looking OK but what control do you or your Photographer have over your images once they are transferred? Where else are your images being distributed and for what purposes? Besides, didn’t you engage your Photographer to handle all parts of your wedding photography in their studio/house/garage, not by a faceless sub-contractor in Mumbai?
Another common practice by a number of Photographers is to have a third party company or contractor design your album. This could be someone in Australia using pre-designed templates or again, someone from overseas. What chance do they have of understanding you, your wedding and what you want from your album? And, if this is the case, shouldn’t you be made aware so you can have some say?
At Impact Images, you will meet the Photographer that will photograph your wedding at the very first meeting. You will speak to Tenneille, Ash, Linda, Natalie or Andrew who will organise your appointments. Both Ash and Tenneille will work on your photos with their amazing photoshop skills and design your award winning album using their fantastic design skills. Everything will be handled in our Studios right here on the Central Coast or Newcastle.
What about packages is your Photographer up-selling you to a package with two Photographers? If so, you should be asking what sort of experience or qualifications does this 2nd shooter have and how much are they actually costing you? Some of the so-called ‘Photographers’ are simply the wife, partner or friend of the main Photographer with little or no photographic skills. They will stand to one side, not say anything all day and shoot away on auto. Yes, they will capture the odd nice photo but is that worth paying for and if so, how much?
Could you do just as well if you came to a wedding and assisted me and I supplied the pro camera and lens? I reckon you could, I believe anyone could. Would I charge for your services as a professional Photographer no way! Some Photographers have the audacity to try.
We don’t usually shoot with a second Photographer because our primary shooters have the skills to capture more than enough of your day to tell the perfect story. If, however, you require a second Photographer for timing or distance issues, we will supply an actual Photographer not a spouse, relative or amateur to do a professionals job.
Before you choose your Photographer, call us do discuss what you are after. If it’s natural, fun, stylish and contemporary photos you want we are the right studio for you. Not only will you be assured of the best photographs of your wedding, you will have the best time, plenty of laughs and you can relax in the knowledge that you really do have the best wedding Photographers and that we will capture everything from the smallest detail to the largest group shot. We will capture the little tear during the ceremony, we won’t miss ‘the kiss’, we will grab those candid moments and direct you to create those contemporary magazine style images. You and your bridal party will have a great time with us at your wedding that’s a promise.
