Once you realize this and search for "wedding photography" or "Cairns wedding photographer" on Google and you'll find yourself staring at a list of 2-12000000 results.
1. You can not know what you want until you know your needs
Because there is a uniqueness in your love and passion together, your wedding portrait should reflect that uniqueness. As a result, you need to understand and be able to articulate a photographic style that will be most suitable for you. To do this you need to ask yourself two questions:
A. What kind of movie that you and your fiance like to watch and what kinds of movies can you see yourself in? Movie (s) you choose will give you an idea of all the feelings of your photographs you most likely want to have.
If you like the movie based on the family then you will most probably want photos that have an emphasis on friends and family. On the other hand, if you enjoy a romantic, action or drama film, then you might be more interested in the photographer who is able to produce dramatic pictures that focus on you.
B. What magazine do you want to see yourself in? Each magazine has a customer base demographic. And this is no coincidence. Do you like the photos of Vogue, GQ, Modern Bride, or W? Look through magazines and find pictures that you want to see yourself in and cut out photographs for future reference.
