A fresh website & wedding expo time...

Hi everyone! Just a quick update on whats going on with 'Be-One Photography behind the scenes.

We're super excited to have just finished a brand new & fresh website for our wedding photography business as I am sure you are now aware of when you navigated here, if not then please check it out & click the link below.

Be-One Photography's fresh new website is here...

It is the result of some hard work & brainstorming to give our clients the very best presentation in return for the investment that they make with us, plus is showcases the actual products we produce such as books & albums. We would love some feedback.

 Our new homepage

Our new homepage

Our wedding photography is first & foremost above any other personal photographic projects that we regularly work on. These personal projects do ensure however that our creative tastebuds & continual personal development are kept wanting more & the benefit at the end of the day is the client which is of course, our priority. 

I briefly touched on continual personal development, this is a requirement of being an accredited professional photographer with the AIPP (Australian Institute of Professional Photography). In this ever changing world of technology there is always something else to learn or develop & thats why being accredited is such an important thing, it prevents stagnation & encourages professional growth, again something our clients benefit from hugely.

Our new sample albums are also now ready to show couples, we have invested a lot of time & energy into selecting only the very highest quality suppliers for our products & we are proud to say each & everyone of them is a local Australian owned & operated company that pride themselves on quality. 

 Here are the beautiful 'Superior' & 'Deluxe' wedding album examples included with two of our packages.

These albums are a large 11"x14" 'layflat' design which means there is a possible 28"(710mm) wide image in the album, seeing these is amazing and really showcases the magic captured perfectly.

This weekend on Sunday we will be exhibiting at the fantastic 'Getting Hitched' expo at Mingara Recreational Club in Tumbi Umbi on the Central Coast, NSW, please come along to our stand & say Hi, we would love to meet you all

NSW State Professional Photography Awards (AIPP) & what we've been up to.

It’s amazing how exhilarating that professional photographic awards can be, it never gets easier on the nerves or anxiety regardless of how strong you know your submitted portfolio is. Equally it is an important part of the ongoing progression of photography where we as artists, are striving to continually provide fresh & artistic images for our clients where the boundaries are pushed. It is also a great leveller being prepared to put your work up there with the very best to have it judged & assessed, not many are prepared to do this, we are though because we believe & have confidence in our work, the standards in the professional awards though are so incredibly high. Yes, sure, we could just shoot the same style, set images week in week out & stagnate as photographers but that isn’t what Be-One Photography is about, we give our clients the very highest quality of work possible, every wedding we photograph is a totally different scenario to the last & is treated as such & the results speak for themselves. Delivering the finished product to a newlywed couple is a proud & joyous occasion when you know that your work that we have both put our heart & soul into moves them emotionally back to that wonderful day when they began their married adventure together.

After much time selecting images, then getting them professionally printed & prepared for entry Belinda & I submitted our work into several categories at the NSW Epson Professional Photography Awards & we were extremely pleased to pick up several awards between us. Huge thanks to the amazing printing work by Mark & Chin at Zone Printing & also to The Framing Game for the matting & mounting, you guys rock!

 

A few updates to what we’ve been up to in between weddings.

Now is the time, well actually it started weeks ago! That we prepare for the upcoming season of wedding expo’s where we get to meet thousands of exiting prospective clients & other wedding vendors. It is a fun time that we really enjoy & this year we have put in the extra mile to ensure that we can show everyone exactly why we provide that little bit more with our beautiful wedding albums and examples of our wedding & pre-wedding photography. We know that all of the hard work is worth it & very much enjoy meeting everyone. The first one we are exhibiting at is the awesome Getting Hitched wedding expo at Mingara Recreational Club on Sunday 18th June 2017.

It is amazing how fast technology moves & to think that even USB now seems to be going down the road of obsolescence is incredible, again we have now decided that we provide the full resolution images in a secure online gallery that our clients are given a password to, images can be downloaded, shared or whatever clients wish from there and it’s accessible from any device anywhere & anytime without the need for USB. As accredited professionals, it also provides another form of permanent safe archiving of a client’s priceless images, this service is included in all of our packages.

We are also in the final stages of negotiation to provide a direct print order facility for these images for those that are keen to receive professionally printed artwork in numerous types & sizes (prints, canvases, acrylics etc) from one of Australia’s top professional printing labs direct to your door at extremely competitive prices. It removes the hassle of clients having to physically organise the printing themselves & certainly ensures a top quality product, we did trial supplying just prints with the packages but felt that everyone has different favourites & small locally printed photographs didn’t really do the images justice. A top quality image deserves only the very best printing.

Don’t forget to keep an eye out for the Getting Hitched expo ad’s on local radio etc & hope to see you all at Mingara on the 18th June. 

Be-One Photography & a focus of direction

Be-One Photography & a focus of direction

Hi everyone, it has been way too long since I last had an opportunity to add a blog post, sometimes life just gets in the way & we're too busy with distractions, but behind the scenes we have been very busy within Be One Photography.

Here is the first of what will be a regular update to whats happening in our exciting photographic world.

Be One Photography had been a long time in the making for several reasons but primarily we felt there was a real need for some true professional wedding photography here on the Central Coast, so my partner Belinda & I set about creating what we believe & our clients certainly believe is a fresh top shelf service to brides & grooms.

We still (when time allows) photograph landscapes & run workshops to keep our creative & adventurous styles very much alive but the main direction is definitely providing what we feel is most important, and that is our wedding, family & newborn photography.

Both of us are fully accredited professional photographers and as such provide far better coverage than any of the competition out there, we also focus our attention on extremely high quality presentation of the finished product. This is in the form of real life physical albums that are without question the very highest quality available today. We invested a large amount of time & effort with numerous suppliers until we were satisfied with the results. These albums really need to be seen to be believed. Handing over one of these albums to the newly weds is truly an emotional experience, they relive the magic of their wedding day story every time a page is turned, we have found that this is not so much the case with digital presentation of the images. We do still though provide a secure online gallery with all of the full resolution images available for download forever at no cost. USB's are fast becoming a questionable form of future-proof storage.

We have also started advertising online with Easy Weddings which has proven extremely successful and we are building on that to, even the company ute is now displaying the fresh Be-One livery. Check it out here; Be One Photography livery by KDR Erina

We have now published a short booklet detailing us, how we shoot and generally most things that you would need to ask or know about your wedding photography, that too has received great feedback so far. It can be found here; Welcome to Be One Photography & we present a beautifully printed version to all prospective brides & grooms when we meet them. 

Please stay tuned for more exciting news.
