Brisbane Wedding Photographer | Why Should I Book Wedding Reception Coverage?


Are you recently engaged? Have you booked the date, booked the venue and now your looking to book your wedding photographer?

Are you confused and overwhelmed by all the different coverage options? Hourly? Day? Night? Ceremony or Reception coverage? Have no idea what you think you will need?

Well here at Nicole Barralet Photography we like to keep things simple. We have two coverage options – day (which includes prep, ceremony, family photos, location and reception entrance) and day + night (which includes all of the above and your reception coverage). So why would you need or want reception coverage?


So this is what I want to chat to you about today – why I believe you should have reception coverage!

We love capturing wedding receptions because:

  • During the reception we have the opportunity to capture your guests enjoying themselves throughout the night, you know ninja styles (think long lens, side of the room, unobtrusive). We love to look out for those little moments that unfold – the laughter, the tears, the selfies and the little interactions that you as the bride and groom might not see
  • If you have a bunch of friends that you would love photographs with but don’t have enough time during the family photo session at the ceremony we have the opportunity to do this during the reception
  • We capture the speeches!! The speeches are some of the most beautiful, entertaining moments of the day. It always amazes me the stories, the emotion, the laughter and the tears that appear throughout the speeches. I absolutely love hearing from the parents on how proud they are and of course the best man… there are always funny stories that come out even when they shouldn’t.
  • We can capture your real cake cutting and your real first dance… no faking!! The actual moment!
  • Reception coverage allows us to capture some of those crazy dance moves that occur only after a few beverages!!
  • And finally one of my favourite things to do during a reception is to sneak outside for a few minutes and capture some beautiful long exposure night photographs featuring sparklers, light painting or bubbles! These moments can add some truly spectacular photographs to your wedding day!
