Do I really need to hire a professional wedding photographer for my Brisbane Wedding?

I get asked this question a lot and the answer is YES.

“My friend has a really good camera” is ok if it is a slightly overcast day = ideal conditions.

But if it happens to be a very sunny shiny day or worse a black thunderous day look out you are in trouble.

This is when the pros well and truly earn their money.

A professional photographer will know all of the shots to get and where and how  to get them and they will have a number of plan B’s up their sleeve just in case the worst should happen.

You cannot recapture the emotions of the day so it is crucial to capture them as they happen.

People have a glow about them on their wedding day that they probably will never have again except on the day of the birth of a child so It is really important to capture these moments.

The wedding photos are the only thing you have left after the wedding day and they help you to relive the memories for years to come.
