What is your style of shooting?
My Shooting style is very candid, relaxed and quite intimate. I aim to capture real, raw and un-staged moments- as they naturally unfold before me. But don’t worry, if you are thinking, “we are so not photo people” during portraits i will guide you when needed and make it as fun as possible along the way.
How long does it take to receive the images?
The day after your wedding you will receive a little sneak peek gallery online so you have some beautiful images to share straight away(save Aunty Merryl’s iphone shots for later lol). You can expect to receive the full collection of images on your USB around 5-7 weeks after your wedding. I take a lot of pride and put a lot of care into my editing and make sure it is worth the wait. Your package will either be hand delivered by myself, or delivered via registered Australia Post.
Can I pencil you in for your wedding date?
Unfortunately, due to high demand and limited dates, I can not pencil in any bookings. Your wedding date can only be secured once an online booking form/contract has been submitted and a 20% deposit has been paid.
Can we meet you?
You sure can! I love meeting people and chatting over a coffee or four. Depending on my availabilities and where i am, we can definitely arrange to meet in person or via skype.
Do you help with planning the timeline for the day?
YES! I have been to so many weddings over the years and know what works really well for every part of the year. All my clients receive a comprehensive pdf once officially booked in, that has loads of tips and tricks for planning the perfect timeline for their wedding day. It is basically the ultimate guide to getting the best lighting for each part of the day, which means timing everything perfectly!
Do you have any recommendations for other vendors we could use to make our wedding awesome?
I sure do! I work along side some absolutely incredible vendors who are the best at what they do. I am more then happy to pop through my list of recommended vendors
to any of my couples!
Do you offer engagement sessions?
I sure do! I have an option to add an engagement shoot to your chosen wedding photography package. These sessions generally go for 40-60 minutes at a location within the Illawarra area. These shoots take place from Monday - Thursday and are done 1 hour before sunset. Due to the nature of being a wedding photographer, and shooting most Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays; weekends are not available.
How do we book?
Your wedding date is secured upon the payment of your first deposit and signing of the booking form and contract. The Non-refundable deposit is 20% of the total package chosen and the remaining amount is due 4 weeks prior to your wedding date.
How many images images will we receive?
I don’t set a limit on the number of images that you will receive. It really depends on a plethora of factors including the type of coverage you choose(how many hours), how many people are at your wedding, the type of events that occur and the amount of details that you have. I really do prefer to focus on quality over quantity. As a guide you can expect to receive anywhere from 400-800 images.
Do you travel?
Yes I sure do! I absolutely love the places that photography has taken me over the years and find so much joy and inspiration in shooting in places i have never been before. You can often find me in different states within Australia, out on rural properties, or over in my second home, New Zealand, documenting weddings and couples in love. Travel for weddings within the Illawarra area or Southern Highlands(60 mins from Albion Park) is included in the package pricing. If your wedding is outside this area, i will provide you with a custom quote for my travel for your special day.
Where can i find your prices?
If you would like me to send you through my comprehensive price list, please fill in my online contact form with as much detail as possible here. I love hearing about what you have planned for your day and the excitement you have towards it! Also, make sure you include your date and chosen venue so I can make sure that i am available. As a guide, my wedding photography packages start at $3,150.
Do you back up your images?
Yes, oh my! This is such an important point to be made! I back up every wedding i shoot 3 times, on 3 different hard drives which are all kept in 3 different locations. I know it seems like overkill, but these are your precious moments that you can never get back. You can never have too many backups!
Can we order prints and albums from you?
You sure can! I offer a range of beautiful fine art albums that last decades and come in a range of beautiful colours and sizes. The information for these are included within my Wedding Photography Packages PDF and can be added to a package or added at a later date. I also have a plethora of options on offer for prints, and framed prints too!
