Frequently Asked Questions

QUESTION

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE OF WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY?

ANSWER

I photograph in a documentary style, focusing on real moments so that your images are a true reflection of your day. As well as this I will gently guide you during the location shoot so you are never left feeling awkward ensuring your images remain tasteful and timeless.

QUESTION

DO WE RECEIVE DIGITAL FILES?

ANSWER

Absolutely Yes! with all of my packages, you will receive all the hight-resolution images free of watermark.

QUESTION

DO YOU USE A SECOND PHOTOGRAPHER ON THE WEDDING DAY?

ANSWER

One piece of feedback I always receive from clients: “We barely even realized you were there!”. This is my favorite thing to hear.
Almost all of the weddings photographed on my website are me shooting alone. If you feel you need an extra photographer on your day I am happy to provide a quote.

QUESTION

HOW MANY IMAGES WILL WE RECEIVE?

ANSWER

In general, I deliver around 70-100 images per hour. The number of images you receive can be a result of varying factors, such as the number of details, amount of portrait time, and the number of guests. The images delivered will represent the parts of the day covered.

QUESTION

WILL OUR IMAGES BE EDITED?

ANSWER

Absolutely, I work with the colour palette, soften and sharpen certain areas, and adjust the contrast. I also apply subtle airbrushing to the skin. I don’t reshape people’s bodies or drastically change the look of anything to ensure your images are timeless and a true reflection of your day.

QUESTION

DO WE NEED TO PROVIDE A SHOT LIST FOR YOU TO FOLLOW?

ANSWER

I like to capture the day how it naturally unfolds. A shot list can take the spontaneity out of the experience, and won’t allow me to be creative and be truly “in the moment”. Be assured that all of your big moments will be captured and don’t worry, I love capturing even the tiniest of details.

QUESTION

WHEN WILL WE RECEIVE THE IMAGES

ANSWER

Usually between 4-6 weeks depending on if you are married in off-peak or peak wedding season.

QUESTION

DO YOU TAKE FAMILY PHOTOS AFTER THE CEREMONY?

ANSWER

Yes. I believe they are an important part of the day that shouldn’t be overlooked. I have methods that help these happen quickly, yet still making sure that people look great and are having a great time.

QUESTION

DO YOU PHOTOGRAPH THE GUESTS AT OUR WEDDING?

ANSWER

Yes. While I don’t spend too much time doing them, I believe they are an important part of the day that shouldn’t be overlooked. I have methods that help these happen quickly, yet still making sure that people look great and are having a great time.

QUESTION

DO YOU OFFER VIDEOGRAPHY?

ANSWER

I don’t, but know some amazing talented people who do. Send me an email and I’ll forward on their details.

QUESTION

WE’RE NOT REALLY INTO THE POSEY KIND OF STUFF…

ANSWER

Good, because neither am I. I like to document the day as it happens, and focus on capturing the emotion and people that are the most important to you. I won’t get you to fake anything, and the photos will reflect who you really are. Hopefully you will hardly even notice I’m there – I don’t carry a lot of gear, and usually just melt into the background. During the private moments, I stand back and create images that are candid and natural. During the portraits I provide helpful direction to make sure that we are making the most of the light, environment and that you are relaxed and comfortable.

QUESTION

HOW MUCH TIME DO WE NEED FOR PORTRAITS?

ANSWER

Generally around 1 hour is plenty, which doesn’t include travel time. I always recommend to try and stick close to where your guests are instead of traveling far and wide – after all – it’s all about the love, not the location.

QUESTION

WHAT IS THE BEST TIME FOR PORTRAITS?

ANSWER

One thing you can’t control on your wedding day is the weather. However, you can do a few things to try and get the best out of the light on the day – try and avoid the middle of the day when the sun is directly overhead and can cause harsh shadows. The last hour of light before sunset is always beautiful and dreamy, and the best kind of forecast is for overcast and cloudy. If it’s super sunny, we’ll try and find an area of full shade so you’re not all sweaty and shadowy

QUESTION

HOW LONG WILL YOU BE THERE ON OUR WEDDING DAY?

ANSWER

My basic package covers 5 hours, and from there it goes to full-day coverage. This means I’m there for the preparations through to the dance floor. I’m there to document your story, so, if you like, I can be there for breakfast. It’s up to you what time I begin, but typically I will show up for hair and makeup and go from there.

QUESTION

FOR ALL DAY COVERAGE, WHEN DO YOU GO HOME?

ANSWER

Each wedding is different and special, I usually stay until the dance floor is pumping and grandma is getting tired. Generally I find once the dance floor is happening most of the photos of the day are captured. Usually this is around 11pm.

QUESTION

WILL YOU HOLD A DATE FOR US?

ANSWER

I can’t hold a date for you, but I can let you know if someone else enquires about the same date before you’ve booked me. However, it is a first come, first served kind of thing – so whoever pays their deposit first secures the date.

QUESTION

DO YOU EDIT EVERY PHOTO?

ANSWER

Every single one. I love creating that classic film look. The editing process is just as much of my service as is the photography, and takes almost as long.

QUESTION

ARE YOU INSURED?

ANSWER

I certainly am, I have $10,000,000 public liability insurance.

QUESTION

HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT SAME SEX MARRIAGE?

ANSWER

I’m all for it, I totally believe that any two people in love should have the right to get married.

QUESTION

WHAT EQUIPMENT DO YOU USE?

ANSWER

I use a canon body, and generally use prime lenses. I only use flash if it’s absolutely necessary, much preferring the use of natural light.

QUESTION

WE HAVE QUOTES FROM OTHER PHOTOGRAPHERS WHO’S PRICING IS CHEAPER. WHY WOULD THIS BE?

ANSWER

It’s likely they will have less experience, lower quality equipment, or don’t plan on being in business for very long. I’m committed to this for the long haul and have priced my collections at a price that reflects my experience, service, quality and time spent.

QUESTION

WHAT ADVICE DO YOU HAVE FOR GETTING THE MOST OUT OF OUR WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY?

ANSWER

Firstly, make sure that both you and your partner are on the same page and both invested in making photography a priority at your wedding. For this reason, I only meet with clients when both of you are able to make it to the meeting.

QUESTION

DO YOU TRAVEL?

ANSWER

I sure do. In fact, I love travelling to new locations and will go wherever you invite me. I am based out on the Gold Coast, Australia. From here, I travel both nationally and internationally to shoot weddings. I’m in Sydney quite often, so if you’re getting married there, don’t hesitate to get in touch.
No matter where in the world you are thinking of having your wedding, I can be there, so don’t be afraid to get in touch.

QUESTION

WHAT TRAVEL COSTS ARE INVOLVED?

ANSWER

Travel and accommodation are the only costs that will vary from client to client. I will always do my best to keep this to a bare minimum and make any extra costs as economical as possible. As each wedding is unique, please contact me for a quote specific to your day.
** THERE ARE ALSO NO TRAVEL FEES FOR SUNSHINE COAST, BRISBANE, GOLD COAST AND BYRON BAY WEDDINGS, BUT TRAVEL FEES AND CONDITIONS MAY APPLY FOR REGIONAL, INTERSTATE AND OVERSEAS BOOKINGS.

QUESTION

CAN WE MEET FOR A CHAT BEFORE THE DAY?

ANSWER

Absolutely. In fact, I insist on this. If you’re close by, let’s grab a coffee. If you’re a little further away, we can organise a Skype date or phone call. Either way, I feel it’s extremely important to get to know each other. I put no limits on the amount of pre-wedding discussions we have!

QUESTION

HOW WILL WE RECEIVE OUR PHOTOS?

ANSWER

When your images are ready, I will send you a link to your password-protected, online gallery which will allow you to download all the high-resolution photos from your day.

QUESTION

WHAT HAPPENS AFTER THE WEDDING?

ANSWER

I encourage all my clients to take a day off work after their honeymoon and before they head back to work and to book in a time for us to catch up and enjoy your images and to finalise album designs and options. It’s important to me that you are not kept waiting for your images and I endeavour to have your images ready for you to view within 3-4 weeks of your wedding.

QUESTION

WHAT CAN WE DO WITH THE DIGITAL FILES? ARE THERE ANY RESTRICTIONS?

ANSWER

There are absolutely no restrictions. They’re yours to enjoy. Print, Facebook, email, and share those images in any way you know how!

QUESTION

HOW DO WE BOOK YOU FOR OUR WEDDING?

ANSWER

To start with, fill in the contact form above, with the date and location of your wedding, as well as any other details that you would like to discuss. If I’m available, and you’re ready to proceed, all I require to secure the booking is a signed contract and 30% deposit. After that we’re ready to go! Bookings are made on a first-come, first-served basis.

QUESTION

DO YOU SHOOT COUPLE/ENGAGEMENT SESSIONS?

ANSWER

Yes, and I place more emphasis on the engagement shoot than any other photographer around.

During this time we have the opportunity to:

1. Get to know each other better.

2. I have the opportunity to learn more about how to best photograph you both. What are your best/favourite angles and what do we need to keep in mind.

3. Create images that are so useful leading up to the wedding on invites or for use at the wedding.

4. Have time to become more relaxed in front of the camera.
