Sarah captured our wedding day and the photos turned out absolutely perfectly. Sarah listened to my needs and what I liked, and worked perfectly with those in mind. Sarah also collaborated with all the other vendors I had and worked wonderfully with all of them. When I have any more need for a professional photographer, Sarah will be the only person I will go to. Thank you Sarah, I can’t recommend you enough.

Sarah was the most lovely person to deal with right from the beginning. We had a catch up coffee to meet her and knew right away she was the right personality to make us feel at ease. On the day she blended right in, allowed us to do as much or as little as we wanted and the photographs are incredible. All communication with Sarah was so easy throughout and we are excited to order a photo book as her example ones look great. We would definitely recommend Bye Bye Blackbird to anyone looking for that special photographer. Thanks Sarah.

From the first day of speaking with Sarah I knew she was all in! From the many planning phone calls and the site scouting I knew Sarah was the perfect person to record the memories of our special day in the best way. Sarah didn’t just want to take photos of our wedding, she wanted to help tell the story of our love and our fun and cheeky personalities. She knew exactly what she was doing! I trusted her completely and that turned into amazing photos. On the day she was like a photo ninja, she would appear at the right times and also disappear and be off getting amazing shots I didn’t even think about, her creativity is insane! I now have sooo many perfect photos ones we had discussed and soo many more. I cannot recommend Sarah highly enough, words can’t express how amazing she is.

should we have a first look?

Hey! I'm just wondering if as a photographer you recommend having a first look or not?

Bye Bye Blackbird

I think that 'first looks' are a brilliant way of creating a truly intimate and personal experience between the two of you, whilst taking away the pressure and nervousness of being in front of a crowd. Photographing your first look also means that you can spend less time away from your guests after the ceremony. 

Thinking of having a post-wedding photo shoot?

Looking for someone to do this and wondering if anyone has done this before? It wouldn't be a "hangover party", it would be similar to a portrait shoot... just not on the wedding day but still in our outfits. In victoria somewhere.

Bye Bye Blackbird

This is similar to a first look photo session in that it minimises time spent away from guests. In my experience, most couples prefer to be with their family and friends, especially when many have travelled great distances to be apart of the day. The beauty of a post-session is that nerves are calmer, plus you can come up with some really adventurous and crazy concepts (e.g. trash the dress) that you mightened be able to achieve on the actual wedding day.

How many weddings do you book per weekend?

Bye Bye Blackbird

Typically the most a photographer can commit to over a normal weekend is two. One for each day. 

A photographer should want to give you their full attention and plenty of time for capturing the event. Normally wedding coverage can start up to two hours before the ceremony, so if your photographer does have  more than one wedding on one day, you would want to ensure they have allowed for plenty of time between each event.
