Most people don’t like their photo being taken and chances are your partner probably dislikes it even more. I totally get it. For most of the day I’ll be a fly on the wall, capturing what’s happening in front of me. I don’t really like to setup or construct any moments as I would prefer to let them happen naturally. I also won’t spend hours making you pose in awkward positions or constantly tell you to smile. When it comes to the portrait part of the day, I’ll give more direction and set exactly the right vibe needed to get some great photos.
Making sure you actually enjoy your wedding day is far more important to me than taking photos and videos. I never want your wedding to feel like a series of photoshoots with a ceremony somewhere in the middle. My candid and “photojournalistic style” will keep you relaxed and free to be yourself. I promise you’ll actually have fun!
If you’re looking for natural, candid images full of emotion and life, then you’re probably on the right path here. Big moments, small moments and moments that you probably didn’t even know were happening. I want to be there to capture magic. See examples below:
I have a variety of packages which include photography only and photo + video options. Optional extras include albums, prints and engagement photo sessions.
Full-day photo coverage starts at $4,200.
Full-day photo + video coverage starts at $6,900.
All Packages Include:
- Pre-Wedding Meeting
In person or over Zoom/Facetime chat about what you have planned. I’ve got lots of tips and information to help your day run smoother and less stressful.
- Personalised Experience
Every wedding is different so I don’t do cookie-cutter imagery. I’m always developing my skills and looking to make something unique at every wedding. I take in consideration different personalities, backgrounds and experiences to make sure what I’m creating for you is exactly what you’re looking for.
- Full-day coverage
No hourly limit means I can be there to get the good stuff without you having to do all the calculations to fit everything in. I normally start after the makeup has started so don’t worry, I won’t be there at 7am.
- Sneak peek images
I’ll edit a few images for you to have within 48 hours of the wedding if you wanted to make an announcement on social media.
- Online gallery
High resolution (print ready) images delivered to you via online gallery. You can easily share this link with family and friends for them to view/download also.
- 110% dedication to making your wedding the best experience ever
The most important one. Don’t worry about awkward posing or long photoshoots. Natural, candid and fun.
We aren’t great in front of the camera… Can you not do too many “posed” photos?
I’m not a fan of “posed” photos either. Most of the day will be pure documentary, where I just let you do your thing. The portrait part of the day (between the ceremony and reception) will be the most “posed” part of the day, but I know lots of ways to make you feel relaxed in front of the camera. Plus I promise we’ll have some fun too.
“Full-Day” coverage means I’ll be there for ALL of the good stuff. I’ll start a few hours before the ceremony and finish well after your first dance. You can count on me to be there for the dancefloor and sparkler exits.
How long will it take to receive our photos/film?
Between 4-6 weeks after your wedding for photography.
Between 6-8 weeks after your wedding for videography.
How far in advance do you book out?
On average couples tend to book with me around 12 months before their wedding date. Although, if you’re wedding date is happening soon you should still send me an email. I still have some dates available in 2023.
Do you offer a second photographer on the day?
I’ve found I can comfortably cover a wedding on my own. Having a second photographer is only necessary sometimes if the wedding is particularly large or the logistics might be difficult. If that is the case, I can organise a second photographer. I also find the less “camera crew” at the wedding, the more relaxed and candid everyone feels.
How much editing do you do to our photos?
I edit all of my photos, but only to enhance what has already been captured. I want my work to stand the test of time and not look “dated” after a certain editing style becomes old. For example, remember when people first got Instagram and went really heavy on the filters? Yeah, nah thanks.
Do you travel?
Most of my weddings are in the South East Queensland area but I travel interstate all the time. I’ve travelled international previously too. Let me know and I’ll give you a travel cost estimate.
What is required to book you in?
One third of the total amount is required as a deposit.
