I know there's problem a million questions going through your mind! So to help you out a little i've compiled a list of some of my most frequently asked questions.
If you've got a question that i haven't answered below, i'd love to hear from you!
How much do you charge and what is included?
I have a range of different packages which vary in price/duration etc. I also offer add ons such as prints, albums and zines. Send me an enquiry and I’ll send you a package to suit you!
Can we meet with you prior to making a booking?
Of course! I love meeting up for coffee/tea and hearing all about your plans for the day. It gives us a chance to get to know each other better and you can make sure you’re both comfortable with me. I'm also happy to do meetings over the phone or Skype if that works better. I’m pretty flexible with dates/times so let me know when you’re available!
How do you describe your style? How do we know you’re the right fit for us?
My approach to photographing weddings is pretty candid or documentary style. I just want the couple to enjoy their day and not stress about the photography/posing too much while I just capture all the happiness and love! I love natural light, outdoor ceremonies and rustic venues (but of course, i would LOVE to photograph your wedding regardless on the theme and location)
Can you hold our date whilst we decide?
Unfortunately not. In order to lock in your date, you need to esign the contract and pay the deposit. Even if we have been emailing/met up for coffee and I was available for your date at the time, it can't be confirmed until these things have been done.
Will you travel?
Absolutely! Travelling is one of my favourite things in the world! If you’re planning a wedding anywhere in AUS or even internationally I would love to come with you and capture your day.
Do you work on your own or with a second photographer?
Most of the time, i like working on my own. I feel like too many extra people can get hectic and it can restrict how candid and natural the photos end up. Although if you have a large amount of guests (150+) we might decide a second photographer is necessary to ensure we capture lots of photos of everyone.
Can you suggest some locations near our venue for wedding photos?
Location scouting is one of my favourite things! Some of my couples like to visit the venue together before the day to show me around and explain what will happen. We can then drive around together and have a look for potential spots to do the portrait session. Otherwise, i'm quite happy to go on my own if you'd like me to scout out some locations nearby.
What information do you need from us prior to the wedding day?
I'll send you a form with all the information you need to fill out prior to the day
Do we need to feed you dinner? (Or Lunch?)
Yes please! I generally like to eat at the same time as everybody else (as i don't really like to photograph people while they're eating) and so i don't miss any special moments. I also don't have any dietary requirements.
We don't really like posing in front of the camera, is that okay?
Of course, i don't think anyone really likes posing. I try to keep my photos as natural as possible and capture the smiles and laughs without you having to do anything at all. The portrait session is generally what people are most nervous about and always starts off a bit awkward. I tell people to relax and just be yourself. I just want you to forget about the camera and enjoy the bliss of this probably being your first moments alone as a married couple. You'll be surprised how amazing the portraits turn out if you just relax and enjoy it.
When will we receive our images?
I generally send through a ‘sneak peak’ selection of images within a week after wedding. Then, you’ll receive your full collection of images within 4-6 weeks depending on the season. If you’re ordering an album or zine, I’ll talk to you individually about the wait times for these.
