Top 15 wedding photographers in Canberra (and why we love them!)

We know that the wedding industry is a competitive one, and this is very true for wedding photographers. There are just so many wonderful ones to choose from that it is extremely difficult to know where to start. But the benefits of a competitive industry go to the customers, which can only be a good thing!

If you are on the search for a wedding photographer in Canberra, here are some hints about what to look for:

  • Ask to see their portfolio and look for a range of high-quality shots that fits your wedding theme
  • Talk to them about their favourite styles of shots and the ways in which they like to work
  • Chat with them and work out if you feel comfortable with their manner and that they would relax your guests on the day
  • Look for high levels of customer service, professionalism, flexibility, and communication

If you need some extra guidance, Easy Weddings have put together a list of the wedding photographers in Canberra that we recommend.
