For years I have believed the title of this post was an oxymoron. Yes in Sydney there are many creative, brilliant and very professional wedding photographers but none you would say are really cheap and affordable. As they say “you get what you pay for”.
To be honest I believe the ‘bottom end’ or cheap or affordable wedding photography service has meant couples were often confronted with unprofessional, non creative and unreliable wedding photographers.
Today proudly I announce to Sydney that there is a real alternative in the wedding photography industry. ‘VFM Photographers’ is a totally new and exciting concept offering couples access to some of Sydney’s top wedding photographers for only a fraction of the cost.
It took a long time for me to establish VFM because I had one problem that I needed to solve. The problem is how does an affordable wedding photography company attract top, creative, professional and experienced photographers?
Top photographers wouldn’t want to book an affordable wedding for another company ahead of time because they know it is likely they will book a wedding for themselves and hence make more money.
Now I have come up with a solution. This solution is kind of like ‘last minute.com’ or ‘wotif.com’ for photographers. When you book your wedding with VFM your wedding date is secured no matter how long away your wedding date is. VFM will allocate one of our top class photographers from our roster two weeks before your wedding date. This is the reason why VFM can attract professional and experienced wedding photographers.
VFM is able to offer an affordable wedding photography service because you will not meet your wedding photographer before your wedding date but you will be guaranteed to have a very experienced, professional and creative wedding photographer (for the price of a budget and average wedding photographer).
VFM Photographers Mission
To offer creative wedding photographs captured by professional and experienced photographers for an affordable price.
Give every wedding couple access to beautiful and creative wedding images even if they are on a very tight budget.

There are many lovely spots throughout Sydney for wedding photography. Many spots though lovely for wedding photographs are extremely popular and hence crowded. Locations like ‘Mrs Macquaries Point’, ‘Observatory Hill’ and ‘Dawes Point Reserve’ in the city, can be so busy that it is not unusual to see five or more wedding bridal parties having their pictures taken at the same time (can get crowded).
Sydney has far more to offer in regards to photography locations than just the ‘normal’ locations that everyone goes too.
Want to know where these beautiful and secrete spots are?
My first post, on the series of secrete Sydney photography locations is about Chinamans Beach in suburb of Mosman.
Google Map to Chinamans Beach
Below my own youtube video shows how to get to the beach (remember I am not a videographer but a photographer so the footage is a little dodgy J ).
This is a top spot that few people even living in Sydney know about. Makes a wonderful spot for a wedding ceremony and or wedding photographs.
As a wedding photographer I am always looking for new products and ideas that will benefit wedding couples…. and as a business owner I am always looking for new technology that not only improves my business but also helps my clients.
I am really proud to announce a new ‘arm’ of my photographic business. Sarhn McArthur Photography can now offer all wedding couples (even those who are not using Sarhn McArthur Photography as a photographer) the ability to send thank you cards from the comfort of their lounge room with their computer.
No they are not E-Cards but real cards! People can now go online and select from thousands of pre designed cards or even upload and design their own card (using a wedding photograph for example).
Once you have selected your card front, selected a font, typed your personal message on the inside, then press send on the computer screen; Australia Post will print and send your card to anywhere in the world (and you didn’t have to leave the lounge room).
Want to try sending a card for free??
I am offering anyone who leaves a comment on this post the opportunity to have a free gift account for two weeks. I will even give you enough funds to send a couple of free cards to give it a go.**
Simply leave a comment and make sure you include a correct email address (will not be published). I will then email you back all the details which will include your username and password to access your free gift account.
This is opened to anyone, anywhere in the world (you don’t even have to be getting married). I am also happy to make this offer available to any photographers reading this post (I know there are a couple of you J ).
Hope you enjoy this new technology as much as I do!
** Offer is only for a limited time.
** Sarhn McArthur has the right to refuse anyone the offer who she believes has dodgy intentions.
