Award Winning Photojournalist Provides Wedding Advice

Award winning photographer, Christopher Rimmer, advises anxious brides-to-be and their besotted grooms to search carefully for the perfect photographer to immortalise the special memories of their wedding day.


Christopher Rimmer is a Melbourne-based, award winning photographer who shoots weddings, portraits and commercial settings in an informal, photojournalistic style. Chris advises that people should begin looking for their wedding photographer early. By beginning the search early, prospective brides and grooms can ensure that they are happy with both the photographer’s style and skill. They then have the time to see evidence of the photographer’s experience through their research.

Chris suggests that the best wedding photographers are usually booked out early so brides and grooms need to be prepared to begin looking for their photographer as soon as they’ve booked the wedding and reception venues. Anyone that has a camera or a mobile phone has the potential to take photos, however the results of happy snaps are much different to the results and memories captured by a professional photographer. 

Photographic styles can vary between photographers as much as the level of skill. Prospective Brides and Grooms should be aware of the different photography styles available - formal, photojournalistic, candid, editorial style or other techniques - to determine which style they wish to use to capture the important moments of their day. They should also be aware of ‘Jack of All Trades’ as this usually indicates they are a ‘Master of None’ and can result in a disappointing end result.

The costs of weddings and the receptions can add up fast. It’s best to get the full pricing from their photographer upfront. Chris says that it’s a “depressing trend in the wedding photography industry to charge a low upfront fee to cover the day while reserving the copyright of the images, pressuring people into spending thousands of dollars on extortionately priced images and albums”. He further warns that there is no reason for photographers to retain the copyright of these images unless they are attempting to make extra profits off them.

Beautiful examples of Chris’ photojournalistic style of wedding photography can be seen on his website: and Chris welcomes prospective brides and grooms to contact him for more information.
