Why use a professional wedding photographer for your wedding?

08 10th, 2016

Let’s face it. Weddings are expensive. With the celebrant, reception, bar tab, wedding dress, bridesmaids dresses and everything else on top, you may be looking for ways to save a few dollars. So what’s the point of spending all this money on your wedding and making sure everything is perfect if you can’t capture it in a way that does it justice.

You will want to look back on your wedding, not with regret. That’s why it is imperative that you hire a wedding photographer that is both experienced and reliable. I have heard countless times that couples have hired a photographer for $500 and their wedding photographs were terrible, or they got their family member who is “good with a camera” to take the photos and the couple haven’t been thrilled with the results.

Wedding photography is hard. It is basically taking every other type of photography such as portrait, couples, event, indoor, flash, landscape, macro and having to implement it all on the one day. Having to do this along with organising people and making sure the day runs smoothly is something an amateur photographer may struggle with.

When choosing a wedding photographer, it is important to view all of the wedding photographs from a particular wedding, not just a select few. Many amateur photographers could take a nice wedding photograph with good light and in the right conditions. However poor lighting conditions, constant movement, dark and gloomy environments will pose a myriad of issues for a photographer who is not experienced.

At Lucas Kraus Photography, we have over 7 years experience in wedding photography and have developed a creative, contemporary and natural way of capturing weddings. We do all this while remaining polite and respectful to the wedding guests.

Our main focus when photographing your wedding is

  • Posing. Making sure both the bride and groom feel comfortable, natural and at easy with the camera. We use many different poses to get the best possible wedding photograps.
  • Lighting. Using flash and artificial light is important as lighting conditions will not always be perfect. Off camera lighting will help give your wedding photographs that unique look.
  • Being respectful. We have all heard those stories of the grumpy old photographer that’s bossing the grandparents around, yelling at the kids and impatient with the bride and groom. We remain friendly and respectful throughout the day and are usually part of the family by the time we leave

If you are looking for a Sydney wedding photographer, Gold Coast wedding photographer or Brisbane wedding photographer, then go to  We offer packages from $990 and will ensure that your big day is one that you can look back on with happy memories, not regret.
