Whether you are on your first pre-wedding shoot, or you are planning your very own wedding photography theme, there is no doubt the excitement is building – especially if you’re considering Newcastle as your photo shoot location.
Most professional wedding photographers are well-trained in calming the nerves of the soon-to-be-married. All you need is confidence, some research about the region, and a little creativity to pull off the perfect wedding photography session!
If you are aiming to head to Newcastle for a destination photo shoot, you may find these tips handy:
Do your research of the picturesque locations in Newcastle for some inspiration.
Newcastle is rich in splendid places for activities and wedding events. It boasts of pristine beaches and fine coastline. If you’re planning a wedding in the Hunter region, Newcastle is a place to consider for your wedding pictorials. You can choose a beach-themed wedding, or a modern theme with a taste of city life. Newcastle overlooks the spectacular harbour formed by the Hunter River.
Decide on your wedding photography theme.
Everything starts with a theme. Since Newcastle is known for its beautiful waters, you can go for a water sport-theme or something in harmony with the beach.
Beach Photography Tip:
As with any theme, it’s time to prepare the props! If it’s the beach, two to three beach attires are safe. Don’t forget your flip flops and sea shells to add drama to the photos. Fresh looking colour make-up is all you need. Play with aqua, and green, and white!
Newcastle is also a melting pot of historical significance. It is one of the most prosperous towns in the Hunter region (and the largest). You can opt for the vintage-look of its historic buildings, or a good collection of Australian art as your wedding photography backdrop.
Check all necessary permits to acquire ahead of time.
Historic buildings and museums may ask for permits. Make sure you settle these before your wedding pictorial date to avoid any hassle.
Communicate your preferences to your wedding photographer. Build a good working relationship.
Having a professional wedding photographer is essential. Of course, you want to feel comfortable in front of the camera. So start early in building a good working relationship with your wedding photography supplier.
Don’t forget to relax and enjoy the moment with your partner.
Weddings are bliss. Pictures are love. Show these in your wedding photos. Just relax and enjoy the moments of togetherness and you’ll definitely have great prints to keep! With the region’s top wedding destinations to capture in lens – you and your partner will fall in love even more. Let the wedding pictures say it all!
