Every dedicated bride knows booking a wedding photographer is one of the most important parts of planning your big day.
Though the big day might occasionally get stressful, the perfect wedding photographer will ensure every minute of your wedding looks heavenly, and stays memorable for years to come—not to mention, providing you with a jaw-dropping array of Instagram pictures.
Whether you’re planning to tie the knot in Sydney or take your nuptials elsewhere, we’ve rounded up the best wedding photographers in the Harbour City, who’ll nail everything from candid reception pictures to the pivotal altar snap.
Bayleigh Vedelago has nailed the art of simple, toned-down wedding photography, still culminating in a luxe finished product. Anna Heinrich and Sydney PR maven Montarna Pitt are just a handful of the high-profile names whose weddings Vedelago has lensed (and stunningly, at that).
Akin to Bayleigh Vedelago, Alice Mahran will make your big day resemble a tonal fairytale, no matter how stressed you might be behind the scenes. Mahran memorably photographed the wedding of Deborah Symond O’Neil (the bride wore exquisite Dior couture), and is known for her work across the country and around the world.
Alex Marks Photography
Alex Marks’ wedding photography possesses a lively, fresh vibe that’s become his signature, and will make your portraits all the more memorable. In his own words: “I believe it’s the people that make the wedding. Sure, an epic sunset or clifftop doesn’t hurt. But if you’re getting married with a tiny budget, under a tent in a paddock with no decorations and you’re in love and smiling, your wedding and photos are going to rock!”
Photographer collective ImageHaus knows how to take portraits that look as though they’ve been plucked straight from the pages of an editorial. In their words: “We try not to set up many images, but even when we do, we bring an editorial team, so they have a magazine aesthetic.”
Lara Hotz Photography
Hotz calls herself a ‘visual storyteller’—it’s even in her Instagram username. Take one look at her portfolio and you’ll see that her vibrant portraits are filled with luscious colour and dramatic settings, yet stop just shy from being overbearing.
