 ANDREW SZOPORY –  WOLLONGONG and South Coast WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER 

Hi there, thanks for checking out my site. My name is Andrew Szopory and I’m a local wedding photographer in Wollongong. I work all over the south coast and love being part of and capturing really chilled and relaxed weddings.

I grew up in Camden and I’ve been shooting in and around Wollongong and the South Coast for over 10 years now. Choosing a Wollongong wedding photographer is hard with so many choices and so many different styles to choose from. I know there are a million and one wedding photographers out there so why choose to work with me on one of the most important days of your life?

  • Experience, although a photographer may only spend 6-12 hours with you on your day the reason a good wedding photographer charges what they do is not solely for those hours on that one day. It is for the hundreds of hours beforehand where they have done the exact same thing before your wedding. They don’t use your wedding as practice, they have made mistakes before and learnt. Like any qualified tradie or business professional that has learnt from their mistakes throughout their career.  An experienced Wollongong wedding photographer is one of the most valuable things to have on your wedding day!
  • You will  never get any high pressure post wedding sales techniques which means you get everything you want for your budget.
  • Unlike some South Coast wedding photographers I understands natural light and how to emphasise your natural beauty with it. Which means on your wedding day, you have no need to worry about rain, poor lighting, a dark chapel or reception venue.
  • One of the most easy going and relaxed local wollongong wedding photographers you’ll ever meet, well according to my brides anyway lol. 

On the south coast there is some of the best wedding photography Wollongong and the South Coast has to offer so if you’re planning to wed in the Southern Highlands or Coast in a beautiful country or coastal location, surrounded by wonderful people, having tonnes of fun and laughs on your wedding day I might be the wedding photographer for you!

WOLLONGONG WEDDING PHOTO LOCATIONS – 7 USEFUL TIPS

  • Is there enough space for your bridal party to mingle and to get some beautiful wide shots of the entire group?
  • Can you access the property where you are planning on having wedding photographs, is it Private property or do you need to book access through the owner or council ?
  • Keep the time of day in mind. Is it going to be a busy Friday or Saturday afternoon where getting from some of the Illarwarra’s southern suburbs to the center of Wollongong will take longer? This is quiet often forgotten and can be quiet critical but an experienced wedding photographer Wollongong should help you arrange this.
  • Go to the location you were thinking of using at the time you were thinking of using before the day to see how busy it’s going to be and what the light may be like. If it’s to busy maybe consider a low key location so you’re not fighting with other couples for the same locations on the day.
  • Does your wedding reception venue have locations on the grounds for wedding photos. Try keep it local and you will create a stress free day with less travel.
  • Most importantly talk with the South Coast wedding photographers that you’re considering to discuss the times and locations to take advantage of the best light for your wedding photos.
  • Make sure you meet with a few wedding photographers on the South Coast to make sure they’re a good fit for you and your fiancé. You need to gel with them and be on the same page otherwise your wedding day might be a struggle dealing with someone who brushes you up the wrong way. Just make sure the location suits your type and style of photos, afterall you will have these for many years to come.
