Professional Wedding Photography - South Coast NSW

This guide should make finding your ideal wedding photographer on the South Coast easy. It’s a high quality list of professionals that includes several togs who have been named among Australia’s best wedding photographers. Plenty are also regularly featured in leading wedding magazines and blogs, and others have received awards from respected photographic institutions. 

We have not identified the accolades achieved by photographers here for several reasons. There’s plenty of photographers in the wedding community who choose not to subscribe to awards or submit work to magazines and this does not distract from their creative talents, but more importantly, these accolades can’t tell you which photographer is a perfect fit for you.  

We believe your instincts are the best judge of which photographer is right for you.

How to find the perfect South Coast Wedding Photographer

With so many wedding photographers interested in shooting weddings on the South Coast, customers getting married here have the luxury of finding their ideal match. The range of photographic styles available in this region is exciting and most couples will have no difficulty finding several photographers who produce photos in an aesthetic they absolutely love. 

On our list of 30 amazing South Coast wedding photographers a style review has been provided for each photographer. Since you’ll want to love your wedding images, this is the best place to start looking for ‘the one’. Use these reviews to refine the type of photography you’re drawn to and find photographers whose work you absolutely love. 

When you find images that give you the feels or speak to you in some way, you’ll want to send the photographer an enquiry to check if they’re available on your wedding date. You can also request a copy of their wedding packages and ask for a price list. The quickest & easiest way to contact vendors is via the enquiry form on each photographer’s listing. They will reply directly to your email.

Cost of South Coast Wedding Photographers

As there are no standardised packages in the wedding industry, package prices & inclusions can differ vastly between photographers. If you’re on a budget, you might want a rough idea of how much a photographer will cost before you enquire. For this purpose, we’ve provided a price guide for each photographer above. Estimated pricing roughly refers to 5 or 6 hours coverage, one photographer + all digital images. 

If wedding photos are one of your top most important things, we recommend ignoring the price guide and focus instead on finding wedding photographers who are a great creative fit. Aside from searching out the photographers who create images you love, you can also filter photographers who have shared interests with - stuff like love, connection, travelling, climbing mountains, the beach, animals, having fun, saving the planet, being crazy, etc. 

Spending the day with someone you like makes all the difference to how much you’ll love your wedding photos. Use the info section for each photographer above to find those you’ll sync well with. All of the listed wedding photographers provide coverage from the southern suburbs of Sydney, to the Illawarra, Kangaroo Valley, South Coast, Southern Highlands, Shoalhaven and further south to the Sapphire Coast.

This is our recommended list of wedding photographers on the South Coast of NSW. We hope it saves you time in finding your perfect wedding photographer.
