DO YOU TRAVEL FOR WEDDINGS?
Yes! While I’m based in Canberra I love exploring and shooting in new locations around Australia and the rest of the world. Wherever you plan to have your wedding, get in touch about a custom quote and I can tailor something for you.
I am available for ACT weddings, Southern Highland weddings, interstate weddings, elopements and destination weddings.
DO YOU CHARGE A TRAVEL FEE?
I don’t charge a travel fee for locations within 100km from Canberra, or for destination weddings if I’m already in country. If your wedding venue is over 100km away I may need to charge a travel fee as well as a fee for basic accomodation for the night.
HOW DO WE BOOK YOU?
Head over to my contact page and shoot me an email. If you want to book me for a wedding we’ll first meet for an obligation free coffee and a chat to see if we’re the right fit for each other. If you’re interstate or overseas, we can Skype or Face Time.
If you decide to book me I require a non-refundable retainer of 20% to secure your date. I’ll also send you a contract to be checked and signed at the time of booking, with the balance due 2 weeks prior to your big day.
For engagement or any other portrait sessions, full payment is required before the shoot.
HOW AND WHEN WILL WE RECEIVE OUR PHOTOS?
For weddings you can expect to receive your photo’s within 4-6 weeks. For engagement and all other portrait sessions you can expect to receive your photo’s within 2-3 weeks.
Please note that the editing process usually takes as long, if not longer than the shoot itself, with each of your photo's being individually and professionally edited by me as part of the service. You will receive colour photo’s with a selection in black and white.
Your digital photo’s will be available to you via the online client portal. Your digital photo’s are unwatermarked, ready to print and yours to keep and enjoy forever.
DO YOU OFFER PRINTS & ALBUMS?
Yes! And I highly recommend getting your favourite photo’s printed as well as a Fine Art Wedding Album. Having a tangible wedding album or print is a wonderful keepsake that will become a family heirloom. I can create both coffee table sized albums as well as smaller books as a little something for the in-laws. Head over to my Fine Art Albums page to find out more.
WHAT ARE YOUR RATES?
Rates can vary depending on the type of session, event location, and number of hours of coverage. Once you’ve submitted the enquiry form on my contact page that includes your specifics I’ll send over more detailed pricing information.
HOW MANY IMAGES WILL I RECEIVE?
Each wedding is different and varies based on the time we have available for portraits, size of wedding, etc. You can expect approximately 80 - 100 images per hour of coverage.
For engagement sessions you will typically receive 50-100 images. For any other portrait sessions you will typically receive 30-50 images, depending on the type of session.
HOW LONG WILL THE WEDDING PORTRAITS TAKE?
Typically the wedding couple and bridal party portraits takes up to 1.5 hours, excluding travel time to and from the location of choice. If we decide to use a location a bit further away from your wedding venue, please factor in extra time to get there and back. Remember that this is a one off opportunity to take photo’s of you on of your special day, so a little extra travel time is totally worth it!
IS THE ENGAGEMENT SESSION INCLUDED IN YOUR WEDDING PACKAGES?
Most of my wedding collections include an engagement session. If you live out of the area I am happy to substitute the engagement session for another item, such as a 'day after' shoot. I highly recommend the engagement session to give you the opportunity to get comfortable in front of the camera and see how I work.
WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR TO OUR ENGAGEMENT SHOOT?
Wear something that you feel good in and that stays true to who you are. Also try and be practical…wedges on a hike is probably not ideal. When you book me for a shoot we will have a phone consultation and I will provide you with suggestions and advice on how to best prepare for the day.
HOW DO YOU ACCEPT PAYMENT?
I’ll send over an invoice which can be settled via bank transfer.
