This shot was just before they moved back into the restaurant at Tokar Estate for lunch – don’t they look happy together!  The love just radiates out of these two, and they just don’t stop laughing at each others jokes – such fun to be around!

Melbourne rolled out one of it’s perfect summer days for Lucas & Ainsley’s wedding in Studley Park earlier in the year.

Huge shady trees, plenty of friends, a river and rowing boat – all the ingredients for a fun day!

Thanks for booking your budget wedding photography with us guys – all the very best for the future!

I had never been to a Pagan wedding before so was intrigued and didn’t quite know what to expect from it.

As it turns out, its very much like a regular wedding, in that there is a legal document that is signed and much of the same things are said, but there is alot more to it in terms of participation, props and symbolism.

The venue for the marriage ceremony was on the road out to Ballarat, but as you know we like to travel so that made a fun day out.

Wherever you happen to be getting married and whatever the type of wedding you’re hosting then please do give us a call or visit the website to check out our cheap wedding photography prices.  We think you’ll agree, they’re hard to beat!!

We recently had the pleasure of photographing Simon and Anastasia’s wedding in St Kilda.

Don’t they look stunning!

Wedding photography can be one of the biggest expenses of your wedding plans. You may expect to allot ten to thirty percent of your wedding budget to photography. Selecting the best photographer and through following these guidelines will help you ensure you keep within your budget when booking your wedding photography.

Review Your Wedding Photography Needs

Talk to your chosen wedding photographer regarding your budget and needs. Your photography will accommodate your budget through making suggestions that will not compromise quality. When picking between quantity and quality, always consider quality. Remember that you as well as your family will be viewing such photos for a lot of years to come.

Consider Your Lighting Choices

Natural and outdoor lighting can minimize the need for artificial lighting. Once less equipment is required, it may lessen the total price of all your wedding photos. Natural light offers the best light for crisp, stunning, and clear photos. Some of the perfect natural light can be found before dusk.

Scale Down

Minimize the number of the photos you want and you will be able to cut down the price. Consider only few posed photos and opt rather a photojournalistic approach to deliver a much interesting result. You should also reduce your own list of must have photos, but rather, let your photographer take more interesting and artistic photos.

Get Rid of the Extras

Even if you think little extras won’t cost you a huge amount of money, it can actually add up easily. Remember that you do not have to add everything possible to your wedding photography package. You can work with the best and affordable wedding photographer to determine the things that could make sense and those that you can do without. You’ll be much happier to see the results and will help you stay within the budget. Do you really need a wedding album?  They’re lovely, but not the cheapest items to produce or buy.

Be Realistic

When you are searching affordable wedding photography prices, you should always be realistic with what you need. You must determine the budget for your wedding photography and try to work within your allotted amount and your wedding photographer will surely deliver you the best photos without the need for you to spend more than your preferred price range.

There are other things that you should keep in mind when you are trying to save more from your wedding photography. It is never impossible to keep your wedding photography within your budget. All you need is discipline and being definite with what you really need. If you want something unique for your wedding photos, you don’t need to spend a huge amount of money.

A good budget wedding photographer can always deliver you the best photos that will meet or even surpass your unique requirements. So, always settle with a photographer that understands your wedding photography needs as this can make a difference in the long run. In addition, see to it that you know what you really need as not all photographers have the same expertise and some of them focus on a certain style of photography.

Sometimes, it’s what gets in the way of your photo that makes it more interesting!

Following their recent wedding ceremony at the Melbourne registry at the Old Treasury Building, Loretta & Mike decided upon an affordable wedding photography session in bother Treasury and Fitzroy Gardens.

With it’s wealth of green open space and beautifully kept plants and flowers it really is a stunning backdrop for wedding photos.  We obviously shot plenty of options using the greenery and vibrant colours but we decided on a few black and white images to compliment the package.

The fountain in the foreground at Treasury Gardens frames the photo nicely and gives a sense of movement in an otherwise static shot.
