Chivonne and Brayden’s wedding at the Tall Timbers in Tasmania was beautiful in every way. We had their engagement session last year at a beautiful waterfall at the Sunshine Coast. I always recommend having an engagement session, just to see me in action and to feel more comfortable in front of the camera (especially if you’re a shy person).
One thing to think about as a bridal couple is that winter light fades quickly. A late ceremony (3-3.30 pm) means shooting fast! Once that sun is below the horizon, there are only about 15 minutes before it becomes too dark to photograph. Being more than just a natural light photographer gives me options to be creative in the night if desired.
Formal family photos can take up a lot of time. And time is precious! If possible I ask to limit group shots to the most important to you and steer clear of too many “mug shots”. However, I always take one big group photo so that nobody gets missed. It seems most couples prefer to have their location/portrait session when there is still day light.
Chivonne and Brayden hired me until 7 pm. Which is great because it usually allows time to photograph everything from preparation to the early reception. Sometimes we catch the speeches too, but it all depends on how you have planned your day. Cutting the cake, first dance, the family having fun and the bridal couple leaving the premises, would need a couple of hours longer. We can honestly say that this Tall Timbers wedding was a huge success.
I wish Chivonne & Brayden many years of fun, love & happiness! XxX Karin
