Story

I saw this group doing a cheers in the distance, I wasn’t initially there to get the first shot but I knew I wanted to capture it. So I quickly ran up to them excitedly asked them to re-do their cheers. I knew I wanted to get a low angle wide shot so I asked them to wait on my command before they did it. Sometimes at weddings you can’t capture EVERYTHING but you can re-create SOME things if they happen when you’re not there. This is one of those scenarios that can quickly be re-created if you really want the shot.

“”Hey folks, could you do that one more time for me?! This time I’m going to get nice and low and when I say GO, I want you to do another BIG cheer for me. But make sure you don’t look at me as you’re cheering and I want genuine excitement ok?” Ready… and… GO!””

Olguin Photography

Photographer Sydney, Australia Sony 24mm
I’m a husband, father of 3 and an avid coffee lover. My wife and I both run the business together and we have been since 2009. My wife (Cassie) works on the finance side of the business (the unseen parts) and juggles the three kids when I’m away on weekends shooting weddings (yes, she’s Wonder Woman). Myself (Alejandro) am the primary photographer. I deal with couples directly and I also still do all the editing myself. YES, I actually still enjoy it would you believe!? I really believe the editing is an important part of putting your final touch and creativity into the photos before delivery. Our business started back in 2008/2009 but back then I used to shoot primarily real estate and commercial work for a graphic design agency I used to work for, which then became my main clientele and who I shot for regularly. That slowly started shifting to weddings back in 2013 when I realised how much I LOVED documenting stories and I’ve now been shooting weddings full time since 2015.
