Franky Tsang working on  a wedding
When Franky, our award winning wedding photographer working closely with his bride on her wedding day.
Choosing the right photographer is not an easy task. You will be overwhelmed on the day and you will not remember a thing. How you remember it will depend on us, how we capture it for you.
 
I guess here is a list of questions you can think about.
 
– Is their work appealing to you?
Try to look at the highlights from the same wedding rather than the best pictures from years of work.
 
– Not only their website, but also check out their social media 
How long do they deliver the images for you, do they provide sneak peeks photos after the wedding?
At Divon, we will post your sneak peak around 1-2 weeks after your wedding, check out our FB page and IG!
 
– Check out their wedding album sample
Maybe you are looking for digital files only. But by checking their albums, you will know if the photographer understands the most important part, how he/she tells a story using stills through an album. Also if a photographer understands prints, more likely the soft copies you get from them will look better when you print it yourself.
Divon only uses Italian made leather albums. Come to our studio and you can feel and touch the quality of our albums. Also you will see how Franky unfolds your story using pictures.
 
– Do they have a studio or work from their backyard?
There is nothing wrong working from their backyard. But for the established professional, they will prefer to have a proper studio where they can work, show their work and meet with you. More likely the backyard guys will have their main focus on their full-time job then your wedding photos.
Divon is located on the 3rd floor of Dymocks Building, on George street. Famous wedding building in Sydney CBD.
 
– Are you clicking with the photographer?
Do you want someone who is fun and loud, stirring the pot when it is quiet? Or you just want someone to be there and hide in the corner? Or do you want both?
 
– How experienced is your photographer?
Practice makes perfect! Do you trust someone just got their pro gears but dont know whats going to happen next on your day? Or you want someone to lead you guys through on the day.
All senior photographers at Divon are over 10 years of wedding photography experience.
 
– Check out their Easy Wedding reviews and Google Reviews.
You are paying a lot of money for something that has not happened yet, how do past brides and grooms think of us is a true indication of what you will get from us. Make sure you read the reviews in detail!
We have over 50+ five stars reviews, everyone is happy with our works and services.
 
– Have you got a wedding planner? If not, will your photographer help you to plan for the day?
We control most of the day for you, we make sure they flow smoothly.
Personally I have helped over 1000 couples to plan their wedding day, I will make sure your day is personal and unique. Because no weddings are the same!

Which one is your style?

Fun and Creative Wedding Exit Idea

It’s late and it’s dark. It’s your wedding and you want to exit with a bang.

We have taken photos for hundreds if not thousand of weddings and one of our favourite moment is the wedding grand exit.

Let’s be honest, everyone loves pretty sparkles. Can you imagine what a mesmerising, picture-perfect moment it would be with all your guests holding sparklers sending you and your partner off? People absolutely love it and most importantly, everyone will have fun and you get beautiful photos taken.

Now, if you’ve decided to use sparklers for your grand exit there are a few things you must be mindful of:

  • Don’t waste your money getting sparklers from your local dollar store or supermarket. Normally they sell those traditional short ones that don’t even last for a minute. So, by the time you light up the last guest’s sparkler the first guest’s sparkler would have been burnt out.
  • This is important! Remember to check with your venue if they allow sparkler send-offs. If it’s an indoor venue, they will most likely have restrictions and not let you do it. But you can probably do it outdoor so it’s best to check first and see if there’s enough outdoor space.
  • Best advice? Don’t use matches to light the sparklers up. Have you ever taken more than 3 matches to light one up and just to see the flame go out again? Get some tealight candles placed around or even bamboo torches for the guests to light the sparklers up quickly.
  • Remember to read the instructions on how to safely use, light up and dispose the sparklers. A bucket of sand is a great method to dispose them or ask your venue if they might have a specific way of disposing them.
  • Let your guests know about it ahead of time to avoid confusions and chaos. Our advice is to prepare a big poster or chalkboard with “What”, “When” and “How” to announce to your guests what and when it’s happening and how to use the sparklers safely.
  • Don’t overbuy. You don’t have to get one sparkler for every guests attending because some of your guests will leave before the wedding exit especially the elderly and parents with kids.
  • Get someone to be in charge to gather your guests together for the grand exit. You can designate one of your bridesmaid or groomsmen or if you have a wedding planner, that’s even better, get them to assist with coordinating your exit.
  • The exit is incomplete without some awesome music. You might need speakers to play your music outdoor. If you have a DJ, give them a heads up so they can prepare extra equipment.
  • HAVE FUN AND ENJOY!  This is a perfect time for us to capture amazing memorable shots for you.

Australia says yes to legalise Same-Sex Marriage!

hellodivon / News / / 0 Comments

We are all so happy to hear that we’re finally paving the way for its legalisation in Parliament. We have been fighting so hard for equal rights to get marry. We believe every individual should be able to love and marry who they want and not be discriminated. At Divon Photography we recognise Same-Sex Marriage and are proud to be Same-Sex Marriage Wedding photographers. We have photographed Same-Sex couple weddings overseas. We hope that Sydney will be filled with more love in the air and weddings to celebrate.
