Taking 5 with Natalie Grono Wedding Photographer

We recently chatted to Natalie Grono, a photographer based in the Northern Rivers, here is what she had to say:

WHAT GOOD ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO A NEW BRIDE ABOUT HER SPECIAL DAY?

Remember to relax and enjoy.  When its all over you want to make sure you’ve enjoyed yourself.

WHAT IS THE MOST POPULAR SERVICE OR PRODUCT YOU OFFER?

My most popular package is called The Love Story, which is complete coverage of the day. Couples are grateful when they receive their images and see a visual timeline of the whole event from start to finish capturing everyone who came together to make the day so special.

My other popular product would have to be the fine art albums, an everlasting keepsake. In todays digital world I can’t stress how important it is to have the images made into an album.

WHAT IS THE BEST INCLUSION IN A CEREMONY OR RECEPTION YOU HAVE EVER SEEN?

I have a couple that spring to mind.

I think one of the most entertaining receptions I’ve covered was of Sarah and Craig. Sarah is from Sweden and she married Craig an Australian. Her friends in Sweden made a video were they took to the streets of Stockholm asking strangers for marriage advice and asked them various questions about the couple by showing them a photo of them. The end result was played on a screen at the reception and was hilarious invoking much laughter.

Sarah and Bud also made a booklet, which contained an informative, and comical bio page of each guest at the reception, they then sat people next to people they thought they would get along with.  As each guest had to make new friends quickly the reception ended up being very social and lots of fun.

The other favorite reception was from a wedding I covered in NYC. The couple took to the streets of Brooklyn with their guests and a Mariachi band!

As the couple (Kerry and Justin) and guests danced with the band various people who were on the street joined in making it a big colourful Mexican themed street party.

WHAT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING A COUPLE ASKS YOU WHEN DISCUSSING THEIR SPECIAL DAY?

How the day will flow and what time of day will be optimal for they photos they desire. I also find it important to discuss what it is they wish for in the photography.

Here’s a little more about her as a wedding photographer!

With a background in photojournalism and fine art I approach each wedding with a unique and attentive aptitude to capture the beautiful flow of your magic day.

I am passionate about the process of making powerful imagery and creating the perfect set of photographs that you will have as an everlasting memory of the love you shared on your exceptional day.
