The new generation of wedding photographers is entering the market in record numbers and is expected to grow at an astonishing rate in coming years.
Photojournalism is booming.
There are more photographers in the world than ever before.
However, as they begin to diversify and expand their professional portfolio, the demand for wedding photography has only increased.
The number of weddings in cinemas has grown by 50 per cent in the last five years alone.
The industry is growing.
A number of wedding websites are sprouting to cater to this demand.
There’s now a plethora of wedding photography services, such as wedding photography workshops, wedding photography tutorials and wedding photography courses.
Wedding photographers in Perth can now book their wedding with Wedding Photographers WA and have it delivered to their doorstep.
But wedding photography in the city isn’t the only area of Perth where wedding photography is flourishing.
“People are becoming more aware of the value of photography,” says wedding photographer Nick Williams.
His blog, Wedding Photography In Perth, lists a number of services to offer.
“There are a number different types of weddings and wedding photographers,” he says.
It’s a different approach to the traditional wedding photographer, who relies on a single day of shooting to make their image. “
The wedding photography that we’re looking for right now is that type of wedding photographer who’s very experienced and understands the importance of shooting weddings.”
It’s a different approach to the traditional wedding photographer, who relies on a single day of shooting to make their image.
“[Weddings] are about a lot of little things, a lot more detail than what we might normally get to photograph, so the fact that they’re coming to Perth is a fantastic opportunity to have a great day out,” he explains.
He says that in order to achieve the best result, wedding photographers need to be able to work from home.
“I do the most traditional, formal wedding photography.
It involves a couple of days of photography and a couple days of post-processing and a bunch of adjustments,” he said.
When a wedding photographer shoots in the field, they have to make a decision about what they’re going to do with the image.
“You have to be aware that your image is going to have to do a lot with the rest of the day,” he explained.
“If you’re looking at the field as a portrait, then you need to know where the faces are going to be.
You can’t just shoot something out in the open without knowing where the background is going.”
And so I try to make sure that I shoot from a distance of about eight metres.
There’s a reason why that’s called ‘six feet away’, because that’s where the cameras are.”
Williams says that the more he shoots, the more his mind begins to wander.
As he looks over his portfolio, he’s constantly coming up with new ideas.”
When I’m shooting, I start thinking about how do I use the technology I’ve been given to take the photograph,” he told The Saturday Paper.
At the same time, he also works out which tools he should use to capture the image in the first place.

Williams has been shooting weddings in Perth for nearly 15 years.
A year ago, he got married at The Church of Christ in Melbourne, Australia, and said that while he loved the venue, he didn’t really have time to get used to it.
“I’d just gone into my wedding photography workshop and had a couple nights, but I was never really able to get to grips with it, to really know it,” he recalled.
Now, he plans to be shooting weddings at The Cathedral of the Holy Cross in Perth.”
It’s one of those venues that you can go in and get a great experience, but it’s not a venue where you can sit and do your wedding,” he added.
And now, Williams is looking to expand his portfolio to include more cities around the world.”
A lot of weddings that I’m working on have taken place in different countries around the globe, so that’s just one of the ways that I look at weddings,” he revealed.
One of his first clients was The Church in Christ in Sydney, Australia.
So what makes weddings so special to Williams?”
It has to do quite a lot to me, but obviously being a wedding director, being a photographer and being a human being is all part of it,” Williams said.”
So if you do your job well and do it right, then it doesn’t matter how good you are, you’re not going to get all the accolades, but you are going see your clients smile a lot and it doesn. “I
