you will keep a piece of me, just as I will of you both and your love

I invest my heart into each wedding I photograph. I will be there to give your hand a squeeze when the nerves kick in all the way through to the party end of the night. 
Rather than just a service, you're commissioning an artist to capture your love story.

Every Bride will tell you their wedding just "flies by", your wedding dress will get packed away and the flowers will wilt but what remains are your treasured photographs that will one day be handed down through generations.

FAQ'S


FAQ'S


 

FAQ'S

Here are answers to a few common questions, of course feel free to ask more

 

How many hours are you there on the day?
Every wedding is different and this is tailored to what you’d like covered, it is usually around 8-10 hours. I recommend to start with the Bride in the morning mid-way through the preparation so part of the hair and makeup is done. I like to stay until the final formality in the evening which is usually the first dance and finish by 10pm.

What do we receive?
You’ll receive high resolution, carefully selected and edited JPG photograph images. These are, of course, without any watermarking and ready for printing.

What’s the one thing we should keep in mind when we’re planning?
Sunset. Plan for portraits at sunset, even if you have to sneak out of your reception for half an hour, this ‘golden hour’ is worth it. It is not-negotiable. I'd rather you enjoy canapés and drinks with your guests between the ceremony and reception and have portraits at sunset than at 4pm.

The way we throw weddings has changed, they're more about injecting your own personalities, less structured, we have neon 'Til Death signs, bare foot brides, Grooms in floral suits, mish-mashes of maids and men and taco trucks.
This means the way we shoot weddings needs to evolve and change too!

Instead of scheduling 2-3 hours of portrait time away from your wedding, I'd suggest that you enjoy your wedding day with your guests until we go out for Sunset. ZERO FOMO! 

Golden Hour is the 50 minutes leading up to sunset and 10 minutes after. This time, globally, is ideal for portraits. A quick Google search will tell you the sunset time on your wedding day however, depending on where you are (hills and valleys) and the weather on the day, the sun may set earlier. After your ceremony, enjoy your guests, games, canapés and music. An hour of portraits before your reception is perfect and then at least half an hour leading up to sunset will produce more for you than 2-3 hours in the middle of the afternoon.
It also means you'll spend more time enjoying your wedding day. We can chat more about it over coffee.

Can we have all the photos you take?
The short answer is no and this is because it’s like asking the baker for flour when you’re ordering a cake. I’m here to photograph your day so every little detail, every quirky moment I capture will go into your selection.

Do you photoshop?
You are beautiful and this is you on your wedding day. I’m a photo-journalist and photograph love and emotion. If an unsightly pimple has flared up on your chin, yes I’ll remove it but no I won't make you thinner, you're beautiful just the way you are.

I don’t like to pose, I don't know how to pose.
I’ve got plenty of tricks up my sleeve to make you feel at ease in front of the camera. My goal is to avoid posing you and to simply make you be with one another and enjoying the moment.

I saw this photo on Pinterest…
Pinterest can be good inspiration but it can really take away from the day if you provide me with a list of set photographs to imitate, this is not my style. As a photo-journalist I like to capture the day as it happens. This is also why I will try not to dictate a wedding timeline and allow the other vendors the opportunity to work freely and not to a photographers strict timeline. With the exception of course for family photos; please keep this list limited to ten (10) groups.

Can we have a second photographer with the DIAMOND package?
If you need a second photographer, the PLATINUM package is for you.

How long until we get our photos?
Due to the seasonal nature of the weddings industry there is a minimum 3 month wait, I know you’re excited to see more but please be patient, magic takes time. Remember the less time I spend emailing you, the more time I can be 'in the zone' editing. I will always try and get your photos to you sooner rather than later but sometimes the wedding before yours may require extra editing because the bride spilt something on her dress and I have to fix it for her. I'm also only human and yep, I do get sick and take weekends and holidays so I tell everyone the same minimum 12 weeks wait.

Do you travel interstate/overseas?
Yes, absolutely. Send me an enquiry using the RSVP tab and we can work to create a custom quote.

We're not your average couple...
LGBTQIA, Genderqueer - love is love.

We're having a theme wedding, will you dress up?
YES! 

Can you recommend a celebrant?
Of course!

Can you recommend a videographer?
Photographers and videographers work closely together on your wedding day. I highly recommend Kelly from KMS Visions, Michael from Mogg Visuals and Sam from Lightwise Cinematography.

We are starting to put together a timeline, HELP! (remember this is just a guide on an average wedding and not gospel!)
- I like to have 45 minutes with the Groom (if he's opted for prep photos) and 2-3 hours with the Bride starting part way through makeup because, nobody likes their photo taken when they've just woken up.
- Brides aim to be fully dressed for 1 hour prior to your departure.
- I leave 20 minutes ahead of the Bride to the ceremony to allow time for parking and set up, if you're having fancy cars and you'd like to be photographed getting into the car, we do a faux departure set up before I leave.
- Ceremonies usually go for half an hour and I suggest leaving 15 minutes for your walk back down the aisle, petal and confetti throwing and congratulations.
- Family photos can take 20 minutes or an hour - I have a great form to help you with this!
- Without a doubt the best time to take portraits is sunset - you can Google the sunset time on your wedding day. If I had a choice to photograph you for one hour on your wedding day, it would be 45 minutes leading up to sunset and 15 minutes after so no matter what you do with your time line, sunset is mine! Even if you have to sneak out of your reception, it's a must! Even if it's only a 15 minute window.
- I stay until the final formality which is usually the first dance but don't worry I don't pack up leave you. I make sure I've photographed as many smiling faces and gravity defying dance moves.
