Choosing the right wedding photographer for the biggest day of your life can be a difficult decision.

There are so many out there to choose between; word of mouth and recommendations are needed to help narrow them down.

If you are looking for the best wedding photographers in Melbourne, we have the only list you will need to read.

A wedding photographer needs to be an incredibly multi-talented person. They have to have an artistic eye, a romantic soul, and the patience of a saint.

Wedding photographers will work very long hours on your big day to capture every aspect of it, and need to be technologically savvy to take the best images and produce the perfect album.

They also need to be lovely calming people to have around on your big day, because they will be right in your face during much of the event.

The best photographers also know the secret spots for that extra special show-stopping image, and all the tricks for getting kids to smile and reluctant subjects to relax. They need to be able to create magic with weather, time and light.

And then at the end, they need to produce an album that will blow you away, making you look you’re very best but still capturing precisely your individual personality and your unique love story.

Not too much to ask, right?

These are not the most famed or renowned photographers in Melbourne, because they are diamonds in the rough and the ones so good that only word of mouth will help you find them. But we know all the best recommendations.
