It’s that time of year again, wedding season, when the wedding photographers from Byron Bay and surrounds drag out their display albums and get on down to the Ballina Bridal Fair.
We do it year in and year out and two things never seem to change. Firstly every year seems to bring more and more photographers and this year is no different. There will be at least 18 photographers exhibiting. This normally makes some photographers anxious. Personally I welcome it.
Brides can see all the photographers work in one place and compare quality of the images and albums. They can see that there is a huge difference from photographer to photographer. The really great photographers will have work that captures the attention of brides and stands out. Really bad photographers will also stick in the mind of visiting brides. What I don’t want, is to be seen as one of the ‘average’ photographers who just blend in with everyone else.
The second thing is that photographers are notorious for leaving their planning to the very last minute. On that point I am pleased to say that wedding package details have been rejigged and my files are at the printers for them to make my new brochures and cards. Now I just have to get everything else sorted out.
