FAQ

Where are you based?

I am currently living in sunny Perth, Australia but will be moving to Melbourne in June 2017. Although Melbourne based, I will be photographing rad wedding celebrations across Australia and overseas!

Will you travel to shoot my wedding?

I absolutely LOVE to travel and will happily pack my bags! Interstate or international it would be amazing to join my couples for their wedding adventures. Some of my favourite places I’ve travelled to include Iceland, the English Lake District & the beautiful Provence region in France so it would be a dream to photograph a wedding in any of these places.

My travel fee varies depending on our locations but generally I ask you to cover my airfares, hire car and 2-3 nights of accommodation. Nothing flashy, just enough that I get a good night’s sleep! I will provide you with a custom quote but generally I’m happy to provide special rates for overseas weddings.

How would you describe your style?

I capture the intimate, ‘in between’ and authentic moments of loved up couples. My couples who are open-minded, willing to allow me into their lives for a day and believe that capturing memories are important. I’m drawn to minimalism in all forms but overall seek the unique, quirky and beauty in unassuming places.

What equipment do you use?

I am currently shooting digital with my kit including 2 Canon camera bodies and an assortment of high quality lenses.

Do you have a second shooter or is it just you photographing our wedding?

I prefer working alone on a wedding day as I can be present in the moment and work in a photojournalistic manner. Less paparazzi, more happy wedding day vibes! In certain cases a second photographer is appropriate, for example large weddings with 150+ guests, however this is on a case by case basis.

What are your thoughts on same-sex marriage?

Well hopefully Australia will get a move on, but I’m 100% all for love and the right to get married!

Where can I find your prices?

To view my pricing guide please fill in my little wedding day questionnaire on my ‘say hello‘ page.

We think you are the right fit for our wedding day, how do we book you?

That is wonderful news! I always like meeting up with my couples in person before anything is ‘official’ so send me an email via the ‘say hello’ section and we can arrange a time & place to chat. If distance is a problem then a Skype date is great too. Once we’ve chatted and you’ve chosen your wedding photography package, your date can be officially confirmed with a $1000 retainer and signed contract. The balance is due one month before the wedding date. The entire booking process is completed online making the process short and sweet!

When will we see our photos?

I always share a sneak peek soon after your wedding day but the full online gallery and USB containing low and high-resolution images will be sent to you within 6 weeks.

How many images will I receive?

I don’t believe more is necessarily better and I do not count photos when I’m editing. The photos are telling the story of your big day so for a full day of coverage I normally give my couples a minimum of approximately 500 images.

Do you offer prints & albums?

Yes, they are one of my favourite parts of the process. There is something nice about preserving moments in a tangible book, especially with so many digital photos being taken every year, every week….every minute! Having digital files is great but having a custom designed album is better. Samples can be seen here but get in touch to hear about my full range of fine art albums and prints I offer my clients.

My venue is asking for your insurance information. Do you have that?

Yes my insurance cover is wedding specific and is an important part of my contract that keeps both the venue, you the couple and I protected from anything that could potentially happen along the way.

Can we meet you?

Yes definitely, jump onto my contact page to see how you can get in touch. A wedding is a very intimate day so getting along with your photographer is an important part of the process. The only way you are going to know if we are the right fit is if we meet up in person.

I don’t really like getting my photos taken and I get quite nervous!

Not to worry, you just concentrate on getting married and I will take care of the rest. Most of the day you won’t notice me as I tend to be a documentary photo ninja. Trust me, having your photo taken is easy peasy and actually really enjoyable! There will be no awkward posing, rather some gentle direction given throughout your portrait session. I can’t guarantee there won’t be some love gazing involved but overall we are going to create some killer shots and have an awesome time 🙂

I see that you are a part of Yeah! Weddings. What is it exactly?

Yeah! Weddings is an artist collective based in Australia. Yeah! Weddings is managed by Samm Blake who recently got named one of the top ten wedding photographers in the world. She has hand selected and trained all the photographers who are part of Yeah! Weddings. We see ourselves as a little family!

I have more questions what is the best way to contact you?

If you fill in my contact form on my ‘say hello’ page I will get back to you as soon as I can. If you don’t hear from me within a few days your message may have got lost in internet land so a message via my Facebook page should reach me well.
