As much as I enjoy all the photography work I do, ranging from corporate portraits and conference photography through to red carpets and live music and corporate event photography, I have to admit that I really love my Melbourne wedding photography work the most.
And do you know the reason why? Super clients and gorgeous wedding details aside, I think it’s the city that makes the experience so fun for me.
Sure, we could be in Queensland with the their cloudless blue skies and 30c temps every day, but after a while the whole notion of perfection wears a bit thin.
That’s where Melbourne excels!
We have beaches with gorgeous white sand down on the Bellarine and Mornington Peninsulas, beautiful vineyards and rolling hills in the nearby Yarra Valley (not forgetting Redhill either!), plus the manicured gardens of the city accompanied by it’s stunning architecture.
Where else can you be at the end of the pier (St Kilda) for some stunning seascape and beach shots and then within 10 minutes be back amongst the columns of the Goldrush era buildings of Treasury, Hotel Windsor and Parliament House. There is elegance and history that can’t be imitated or replicated elsewhere.
By now we’ve already used up 2 hours of photography time and I haven’t even mentioned the numerous laneways, colourful graffiti and alternative areas of Brunswick and Northcote. We know some fabulous Melbourne wedding photography locations in those areas so please ask if you would like some ideas for your bridal portraits.
The city’s great vibe also rubs off on people – Melbourne couples are generally relaxed and easy going (yes, even on their wedding day!) and it really shows through in the photos, with a calm, happy and relaxed demeanour allowing the photographer to play with the light and the location without any added pressure. We also find that our clients allow us to do our job, trusting us that we know the best locations for photography, all the while helping us become the best wedding photographers in Melbourne. And for that we thank you!
