FAQ

Do you travel?

Certainly, though time of year and schedules may dictate how far or for how long.

Do you have a second shooter?

I prefer to work alone to keep the media less invasive and not draw attention to our cameras firing off. But am not apposed to a 2nd shooter should you require one due to special requirements.

How do we book you for our wedding?

A 50% retainer and signed agreement will secure your date. The balance is due on the day of your wedding.

How are the photos finished?

All images are curated and given full-post production treatment and yours as print ready and web ready images. The editing process is just as much of my service as is the photography, and takes almost as long if not longer. I generally delivery between 250-500 images to my clients from their wedding day. You will receive your images via online gallery 4-6 weeks after your wedding date. Shortly after that I will send you a USB with all high resolution images included too.

Do you work off a shot list?

Every wedding is as unique as you are so I go by what is special to you. I welcome a reasonable shot list such as specific family groupings but no more than 6! Otherwise the day is dictated and constricted. And sure, the details of course! But mostly my time is focused on the full day as a story.

How much time do we need for portraits at a wedding?

Generally around 1.5 hours, which doesn’t include travel time. If you want to get some epic shots which may mean more travel time – remember to factor this in. In the end it’s about the love and the only time in your life you will get these special photos, so make it count!

 

We’re not really into the posing

Excellent, because neither am I.

Very little posing other than a quick family portrait session. Barely posing really.. mostly grouping. I keep this short and sweet so not to lose the dynamics between the family members and take away from the flow of your wedding day.

I like to document the day as it unfolds, and focus on capturing the emotions and people that are the most dear to you. I won’t get you to fake anything, and the photos will reflect who you really are. Ideally you won't know I’m there – I carry very little gear which frees me to move fluidly and inconspicuously.

Will we meet before our wedding?

I love to meet all my clients to ensure we’re a good fit and have a chat beforehand. I’m always keen for a nice coffee, or a cheeky cocktail on a Friday night. If you’re interstate or overseas, we can Skype instead. But we all always meet before the wedding day if possible.

Can family and friends view or buy images?

A gallery site named ShootProof will host all of your edited images for family and guests to view and purchase at a compatible lab fee (this service frees you from the headache of managing print orders. Be assured you will be receiving all curated images either on a USB or through Wetransfer within 4-6 weeks of your wedding day.

Do you edit the images?

Absolutely, every single one!  My background both in fine arts and photo journalism has me on my toes with critical story telling and rendering of the images. No ugly watermarks nor extra image fees.
