About wedding photographers

Capturing the magic of your special day requires more than just a camera—it demands an eye for detail, a passion for storytelling, and the ability to blend into the background while documenting every precious moment. Nelson and Tasman's wedding photographers are masters of their craft, offering a range of styles from classic elegance to contemporary chic. 

How far in advance should I book a wedding photographer? 

It's best to book your wedding photographer as soon as you've set a date. Popular photographers in Nelson and Tasman can be booked up to a year in advance, especially for peak wedding season dates.

What's the difference between traditional and photojournalistic wedding photography? 

Traditional photography focuses on posed, formal shots, while photojournalistic style captures candid, spontaneous moments throughout your day. Many photographers offer a mix of both styles to provide a well-rounded collection of images.

How many hours of coverage do I need?

Most couples opt for 8-10 hours of coverage to capture everything from getting ready to the reception. Your photographer can help you determine the right amount based on your wedding timeline and must-have shots.

Do wedding photographers offer videography as well? 

Some do, but many specialise in either photography or videography. If you want both, look for a photographer who partners with a videographer or offers packages that include both services.

What should I look out for in a potential wedding photographer's portfolio? 

Look for consistency in style and quality, attention to detail, and the ability to capture emotions. Also, check for examples of weddings shot in similar venues or lighting conditions to yours.
