Frequently Asked Questions
// Where are you based?
I am based on the East Coast of Australia in the Sunshine Coast Region. My local weddings cover anywhere from Byron Bay to Noosa. I often travel interstate for Weddings. Each year I accept a limited amount of international destination weddings.
// We're not really into that posed stuff...
Good, because neither am I! I like to document the day as it happens, and focus on capturing the emotion and people that are the most important to you.
I won’t get you to fake anything, and the photos will reflect who you really are. Hopefully you will hardly even notice I’m there – I don’t carry a lot of gear, and usually just melt into the background.
// 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. Upon contacting me, I will send you a link to a online calendar so you can book in either a video chat (most popular) or a meet up at the local cafe. From here we will discuss the whole wedding process from start to finish. For my interstate clients, I usually do a yearly trip to Sydney, Canberra and Melbourne to meet you too (and fit in an engagement shoot if we have time!).
// Do you travel for weddings?
Yes! I easily travel all over the place for weddings. I absolutely love going to new venues that I haven’t seen before, which is why I arrive the day prior to your wedding to suss out all the good spots for the big day.
I also regularly shoot weddings overseas. I have photographed weddings so far in Santorini, Ireland, Northern Ireland, Iceland, Mallorca, Fiji, New Zealand, Thailand and Bali.
// How do we book you for our wedding?
A $500 non-refundable deposit will secure your date. I’ll then send you a contract to look over and sign, and the balance is due in two parts. 30% of the balance is due 3 months prior to your wedding, then 100% of the remaining balance is due 2 weeks prior. This can be paid out via Bank Transfer or Credit Card.
// How are your images delivered?
I generally delivery between 500-900 images (for 8 hours) to my clients from their wedding day.
You will receive your images via online gallery 4-6 weeks after your wedding date. This online gallery is secure and you can download the images in both high resolution and social media size.
// Do you work off a shot list?
I don’t entirely as every wedding is unique so I go by what is special to you. I have my key shots I love to get, with a wedding Album always in mind whilst shooting.
I only ask you don’t send me pinterest boards of bridal parties running way from photoshopped dinosaurs or really posey cheesy shot requests! If you want this stuff, I might not be the photographer for you.
// How long do we need for wedding portraits?
Generally around 1 hour for portraits (not including family photos(), 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!
