Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How can couples find Wellington photographers for pre-wedding engagement portraits?
A: The WPJA issues Diamond Awards for Wellington wedding photographers to showcase their best engagement photography work. These awards are given to photographers who prove that they have an ability to be creative, artistic, and intuitive while working on-location with couples who are newly engaged.
Q: Can a wedding photojournalist create artistic portraits on my Wellington wedding day?
A: While wedding photojournalists strive to capture candid moments on the wedding day, our photographers also are skilled artists who can compose powerful portraits. If you have a specific vision of what types of images you want from your wedding day, look at the top-ranked Wellington wedding photographers who have earned Artistic Guild awards for portrait and detail images.
Q: How can couples find reviews of Wellington wedding photographers?
A: We call them Client Letters. At the WPJA, we decided more than 20 years ago to avoid incorporating those third-person testimonials and endorsements that are found all too often in advertisements. Instead, we elevated our listings with the use of Client Letters, which represent the actual words and feelings of the clients who booked those Wellington wedding photographers for their own wedding.
