I would like to Introduce Craig who is a valued Photographer for the Noosa Wedding Ring.
Where you are from and a bit about yourself :
I am originally from Newcastle and moved to the Sunshine Coast approximately 20 years ago.
I enjoy the Sunshine Coast Lifestyle of fitness and water sports. Photography has been a passion throughout my life, however it has only been in the past 8 years that I have turned this passion into a career.
How long you have been doing Wedding Photography :-
Professionally I have been doing wedding and portrait photography for the past 8 years. My work experience has included everything from the small intimate elopements through to the larger elaborate all day weddings.
Any funny or favorite moments:-
There have been many funny moments but the one that sticks in my mind was at a wedding where the groom was adamant he only wanted to spend 20mins on the beach. Despite this, he ended up enjoying himself so much that it wasn’t until an hour later that we finally finished the ‘beach’ section of the photo shoot
Another moment that comes to mind is when I was at Mooloolaba on the rocks photographing a large fun bridal. Unbeknown to me,but very visible to all of those in the bridal party, a large wave was approaching and consequently broke right over the top of me. As well as photos, I provided that bridal party with a great laughing spectacle, being me!
Any advice you can give a bride to be:-
Choose your wedding suppliers i.e. photographers, coordinator, etc to suit your personality and style as you will only get the photos you want by choosing someone you can relate well to on the day, as this will reflect in your photos. Choose someone that recognizes it is your day and their job is about providing you with images you would like to celebrate and remember this day! Just have FUN after all it’s your wedding day…
Do you have a personal style:-
Relaxed and casual, however, I take great pride in my work and deliver a very professional service. I also realize that most people aren’t used to being in front of a camera and need a little direction, but I always do this in a fun, respectful and relaxed manner.
