Wedding Photographer #DurbaniteWeddings
So, your photos for your wedding are kinda a big deal. They will after all be on display on your walls and your in-laws piano for the rest of your life. Aint nobody want gawky, bad-lit photos from their wedding day!
With so many talented photographers out there, how do you actually make a decision on which one to go with? There really are sooooo many to choose from.
My first choice would be my brother from Nick Ferreira Photography, but I wanted him to be able to relax on our wedding day and have fun with us. I didn’t want to get all Bridezilla on him if he was having a drink at the bar instead of capturing me taking selfies with my besties you know… and so, I went to many wedding expos and bridal fairs on my hunt to finding the perfect photographer for our BIG day. I took burning the midnight oil to another level, trolling the internet day and night. I searched and searched until I could search no more.
I found some really amazing photographers but at the end of the day, 4 things made me (err… I mean US) settle on Craig from Sergerius-Bruce photography.
- Talent – he sure has the talent
- Style of shooting – I love the way he documents a happy, fun day
- Do you like each other? – well, yes of course! We have known Craig for a few years now
Craig shot Tim’s (my Fiancé) sister’s wedding in Mauritius! They are the featured wedding in this post (how beautiful is Jen – one of my bridesmaids by-the-by!) and together with his wife Chanelle (who owns her own consultancy), he has travelled the world taking photos in some of the world’s most idyllic locations including Bali, Morocco, Mauritius, Cyprus, Prague and Durbz of course! Their photos have been published a heck of a lot – I feel famous by association!
More recently Craig (an avid surfer) has taken to surf photography (check out @UnparalleledLife on Facebook) and with his family will soon make a move to J-Bay but fear not… he LOVES travelling so if you need to book him for an epic event or your most beautiful special wedding day, don’t let the distance put you off…
We have met to discuss a few nitty-gritty details and I have sent him some photo ideas which I quite like. But at the end of the day I trust his professionalism, skill and talent to capture our wedding day in the best possible way.
EEEK!! 32 days to go people!
