One great thing about marriage is that nearly everyone does it, so you probably already know lots of people who have the contact details of some amazing wedding photographers in Sydney. The logical place to start is by looking at the pictures taken of your friends and relatives’ big days so that you can compare them to find a style you like.

Keep in mind; the person who worked on your parent’s ceremony might be retired or deceased so don’t get hung up on using them. Your friends might be able to help you get special discounts if they know the right people (for example, their family member is a wedding photographer in Sydney).

Search the internet


The next place to search for a wedding photographer in Sydney is the internet where you can get hundreds of relevant results in a matter of seconds with the help of a search engine like Google, Yahoo or Bing. Generally, the first 3 to 5 results are going to be considered the ‘best’ but will likely also be in the highest demand since most of them will be booked by other couples months or even years in advance of their big day.

Once you find a suitable candidate, browse their website to get some more information about them. The most important thing to review is their portfolio of past work which they should be displaying prominently on their homepage. Take a look at the different couples they have worked with and get a sense for their shooting + editing style.

You should also be able to get an idea of their pricing as well as their availability and how best to get in touch with them. Their ‘about me’ section should also give you some insight into their passion and general attitude towards the work that they do.

Interview them

Lastly, if you really want to be sure you have selected the right person you can organize an interview with them. Here you can discuss the finer points of what you want and gauge their enthusiasm for working with you.

Hopefully the above tips will help you in finding the perfect wedding photographer in Sydney.
