Female Wedding Photographer
Many brides prefer a female wedding photographer because they naturally feel that a woman better understands what a bride experiences and goes through on her wedding day. Being a female wedding photographer Alice has an appreciation of what a bride considers important - the importance she places on her dress for instance, how she feels about her hair and make-up, and the way she feels about herself on the day of a wedding.
Brides will probably never feel as comfortable with anyone else as they will feel with a female wedding photographer. The reason for this is because brides often want photos to be taken before the wedding ceremony of themselves getting ready with their bridesmaids and other female family members - these type of photos usually require a female wedding photographer to be present.
Because Alice is also a woman, as a female wedding photographer she can precisely capture the moments and emotions important to the bride. She also understands how to photograph any woman to bring out her very best qualities!

Alice talks about choosing the right wedding photographer
"Many years back when I was getting married in South Africa, my (now) husband and I asked a female wedding photographer who we knew via a friend. But at our consultation, this wedding photographer wasn't very friendly and had a written list of stuff that she photographs and doesn't photograph and wanted us to make an exact list of what we want her to photograph, waving her finger at us and noting that if we don't state it, it will not be photographed. The rest of the consultation was just a blur of her ranting & raving (not quite sure about what).
I was pretty rattled after the consultation and felt that, if this wedding photographer is so unfriendly, irritated and aggressive during a mere consultation, how will she be at our wedding? (when the last thing you want is to worry about directing a tantrumatic female wedding photographer). Isn't that what we're paying her for - to think for herself what she needs to photograph at our wedding & what not? (is what I thought anyway). Maybe we just didn't see eye to eye with this specific wedding photographer or maybe we were thinking on different levels.
Either way I told my husband (my fiance at that stage) - no way. I don't care about anything else but the wedding photographer must be right! That is the most important person at the wedding, apart from the bride & groom because they are responsible for making the bride & groom feel & look relaxed when it will probably be the most exhilarating & stress-related day of their life! It is the wedding photographer's job to be adaptable to every wedding and bride & groom's own specific style - to be friendly, relaxed and in control, even when under pressure. That, in my opinion, is the definition of a good wedding photographer that you would want at your wedding.
As it turned out, we did find another fantastic, affordable wedding photographer who was very relaxed, experienced & professional. The wedding photos turned out just the way we had imagined - relaxed & natural - reflecting both the theme of our wedding and our style & personalities.
To this day I never regret finding another wedding photographer as I can look at the wedding photos with a big smile on my face and relive this wonderful day... our wedding day. And know that it doesn't reflect the wedding photographer's personality but ours. That's what made the wedding photographer so good was the fact that she made us feel relaxed enough to show our true style and to be adaptable to capturing that style at the same time in our wedding photos... It also happens that my father sadly passed away unexpectedly in a car crash, exactly 2 months after our wedding. We didn't have a lot of photos of him and was exceptionally thankful for the wedding photos - of him walking me down the aisle, and sharing a great time with his family. That gave me great comfort during a difficult time and made me realize the importance of photos - especially photos that are taken at an important day of your life like your wedding day (it is also probably worth noting that it was during this time when I decided to become a professional photographer, now almost 8 years ago).
So, my point is that every single wedding will be different and this is the difference between an average wedding photographer and a good wedding photographer - is for the wedding photographer to understand and realise that it is not just wedding photos that you are taking but of two people, sharing their love, compassion & joy with each other on one very special day... This day should reflect their feelings towards each other forever and you, as wedding photographer need to adapt to what they want and understand the vibe & rhythm of their own individual wedding.
It is also a wedding photographer's responsibility to focus on every bride (and groom's) strong aspects - you can't merely take the same style photos of everyone. As a photographer of not only events or weddings but also of individual portraits, I have a lot of experience in finding the right angles and ways that work for each individual person. So, even more so I do think myself very experienced in making people look even more fabulous and helping them to relax and feel comfortable as many of my clients isn't always wearing a wedding dress or make-up or hairdos, yet they still look fabulous in the photos and love it! I always think that you can cannot re-create a beautiful expression with photoshop. Which is why it is so important for any wedding photographer to make sure they capture these special candid moments (and create the right vibe, otherwise no such special moments will occur if people feel awkward and stiff around the wedding photographer!).
Being a female wedding photographer I can relate to what women are thinking. Many wedding photographers out there tend to make the mistake of only focusing on the technical aspects of a photo, whilst sometimes forgetting that it is important to the people they are photographing to look and feel good about themselves, whether it be for wedding photos or portrait photos. Every bride wants to look beautiful but not every bride looks like an artificially created model from a magazine. And it is important for a wedding photographer to realize this. Lastly, it is a wedding photographer's responsibility to be creative as you wouldn't want 100 photos all looking exactly the same (how boring!). You would want different backgrounds, different set-ups, special candid moments... Not to mention different style wedding photos i.e. close-ups, torso shots, full body shots, full view shots etc. - all captured in your wedding photos. This is what I, as wedding photographer always try to focus on is to deliver as much variety possible to each and every client that I photograph, whether it is for a wedding, event or photo shoot.
I have many years of experience & expertise in people's photography and knowing how to make each & every client look & feel their absolute best! And as a wedding photographer I also know how to encourage, motivate and add a cool & calm vibe to any stressed bride & groom. So if you are looking for a friendly, relaxed, down to earth, adaptable, professional & creative & affordable wedding photographer in Auckland, whose sole purpose is to make YOU look your very best in your wedding photos and to capture YOU & your partner's own very true style & personality, then contact me now!
I photograph any and all different types of Auckland weddings- whether it is to photograph big weddings or to photograph small weddings small, traditional weddings or to photograph non-traditional weddings, even weddings for gay couples (or non-gay couples). Whatever strikes your fancy!"
