Byron Bay Wedding Photography
Living the Dream
Staging a wedding is no mean feat even for someone who practices Byron Bay Wedding Photography. No wonder Elopements are so popular these days. It is like putting your love story on show. For me it was a situation where I needed people around me that I felt totally at ease with. People that I could be open with. Be sure you feel completely comfortable and most of all you don’t feel judged by your Photographer. That way you can be openly expressive and this will pay off big time when you see your photos.
For years my personal preference was shooting landscapes, seascapes and surfing. I eventually realised that I wanted to photograph people but didn’t have a lot of confidence. I then found myself shooting a few Byron Bay weddings to get some images for my wife’s website. This was an epiphany. Everyone was totally expecting the lens to aim their way and the confidence issue dissolve. I was hooked. Over night weddings took first place on my list of to do’s. And what could be more satisfying than covering weddings around the gorgeous Byron Bay.
Even Byron Bay weddings may seem ordered and carefully planned but they are fast paced for the photographer with no room for error. You can’t come back at a later date and re-shoot. The up-side is that the images move people. The photos will be on display to a large audience and have to be spot on. The sensory overload of emotions is canned forever.
If money was no object I would still be doing exactly what I’m doing now but surfing far-out places and skiing the best slopes on the planet. The best bit is that there is still plenty more Byron Bay weddings to come!
