How to Choose the Perfect Photographer for your Adelaide Wedding (2022)

Wedding SA’s 9 Step Guide to Finding the Perfect Adelaide Wedding Photographer

  1. How many photos are you looking for? A couple dozen amazing shots to build an album, have printed and displayed? or hundreds or thousands? Some photographers take less photos, but they might be more to your liking. Other photographers may take many images and many may be quite similar.
  2. Create an action plan. Will you require photos of you getting ready? travel to and arrival at ceremony venue? Ceremony (obviously)! Then groups – how many? Photo-shoot of newlyweds on location? Reception coverage? How many hours do you think this might be?
  3. Browse wedding photographer’s portfolios. Look at their different styles.
  4. Once you have selected a shortlist of photographers send them an enquiry!
  5. Meet with your shortlisted photographers and ask them to show you completed albums, or a large range of photos from a single wedding. This will help you double check that they’re going to be able to deliver they style and quantity of photos that you’re after.
  6. Make sure your personalities match! Will you be comfortable with them on your wedding day?
  7. Compare packages and inclusions.
  8. Get post production details. Will you expect every image to be art-worked? or just a few hero images?
  9. Once you’ve settled on a photographer, check their contract and look for additional costs like overtime, printing, supply of digital images, and cost for special effects.

Adelaide has some super talented wedding photographers. No matter what type of style or wedding coverage you’re after, you’re sure to find something to suit your requirements. Sit back, relax, and browse these popular Adelaide wedding photographers.

How to Plan the Perfect Adelaide Wedding (2022)

13 Easy Steps to Planning a Wedding

You can start planning your wedding in 13 easy steps. Wedding SA has everything you need to plan a fabulous wedding in Adelaide and South Australia. Browse affordable Adelaide wedding suppliers, real weddings, wedding inspiration and unique ideas, wedding package info, special offers and more. Follow our social channels for all the latest tips, specials, offers, and open day info. We look forward to helping you make your Adelaide wedding fabulous! xx

  1. Enjoy being engaged!

    Be in the moment and enjoy this special time together. Start storyboarding your ideal wedding day. Discuss it together. What do you picture? Casual or Black Tie? Rustic or Fairy tale? Local or Destination? Wedding SA has real weddings you can browse for inspo.

  2. Tell your family and friends

    Announce your engagement and discuss your wedding plans with your family and friends. Find out if any VIPs (parents, potential bridal party members) have commitments that would rule out certain dates for people you really want attending your wedding.

  3. Decide on the style of wedding

    Your wedding style will narrow your venue choice. Venues often book many months, or years in advance. Once you have your wedding style, then it becomes easier to pick your venue. The most popular styles are:
    Fairytale = city ballroom
    Rustic = country or winery
    Beach = coastal or water views
    DIY = community hall, sporting venue, private home
    Destination = somewhere with great views and accommodation.
    Check out the Wedding SA venues or catering companies and make some enquiries as to availability and pricing.

  4. Set your budget

    Once you’re received info on potential venues, you can think about your budget. Talk to your parents and see if they plan on contributing towards your wedding. Think about how much you can save and afford to spend on your wedding. You might like to open a separate account for wedding savings and spending. Once you have a rough budget you can consider how many people you can afford to have at each venue. Of course, it’s also an option to ask people to donate cash in lieu of a gift to help off-set the cost. Wedding SA has a budget planner you can download to help you out.

  5. Start booking!

    Typically it is the reception venue selection that set’s the date. Then couples consider their ceremony venue – which may be at the same venue. Wedding SA has some great ceremony venues to consider – gardens, beaches and churches.

  6. Photographers, video and cars!

    Wedding photographers and cars can also be booked out many months, or years in advance. Don’t forget a video! Many couples skip the video, but it’s an gorgeous way to relive the forgotten or never seen moments. Have a browse through Wedding SA to find your preferred suppliers.

  7. Celebrant

    Your choice of celebrant can make or break your ceremony. Meet with a few and make sure they make you feel relaxed and confident. This will help with any nerves on the day.

  8. Flowers, Decoration, Decor, Hire, Cake

    What are you going to need to make your venue fabulous? Do you need to hire chairs and crockery for a DIY wedding? Will you have floral arbors and centerpieces? Some venue packages will include decorations – check what is included – it may be centerpieces, chair covers, etc. They may also include a wedding cake.
    Consider a floral theme – it could be colour or style based. Remember that you’ll be holding your bouquet throughout the ceremony and photos – they can get heavy!
    Will your wedding cake be used as dessert? This will determine what size your bakery will recommend. You can also get different tiers with different flavours! Heavenly! xx

  9. Music and Entertainment

    Musicians at your ceremony can set a lovely mood for your wedding. Other entertainment options are endless – DJ, swing band, jazz singers, band. Photobooths can be fun too!

  10. You!

    What are you going to look like and wear at your wedding? Browse through the Wedding SA fashion, hair and makeup, and rings and jewellery sections for inspo and amazing Adelaide wedding suppliers.

  11. Guest list and bridal party

    Work out your guest list. Select your bridal party. It can be less stressful to select your bridal party closer to your wedding date, eg 3 months before. It’s easier to not select someone, than have to un-select them. Wedding SA has a guest list and seating planner you can download to help you out.
    Invitations! Send out invitations for your hens or bucks party, and then the wedding. Typically wedding invitations are sent 3 months in advance. Although this is flexible, and sometimes a save-the-date is important especially for friends or family that might need to travel a long way, arrange time off work, or save up to attend!

  12. Honeymoon

    Yay! This can be any time you like. Soon after your wedding day, or some time later. Many travel agents offer a honeymoon registry and can be an easy, but fabulous gift from your guests. If you are planning on changing your name, ensure you have your passport and travel documents in the same name! It might also be necessary to have a credit card in this name too, especially when confirming bookings or collecting tickets.

  13. The last details

    Maybe you’re looking for something unique to finish off the day? Or a dance studio to WOW your guests with a special routine? A thank-you gift for your bridal party and / guests.
