Do you charge for travel?
For locations including Sydney, Wollongong, Macarthur, Penrith and The Southern Highlands absolutely not. However, if you’re getting married a little further afield in locations such as Goulburn or the Hunter Valley I do charge a travel/accommodation fee to cover associated costs. If you’re unsure please don’t hesitate to ask.
How does the album ordering process work post wedding?
Post wedding an album proof will be emailed to you with your included album design, as well as a larger upgraded album design which may be purchased if you so choose. While most couples do upgrade their album, there is no obligation to purchase anything if you’re happy with your included album. And yes of course you can change photos in the album proof should you want to before it goes to print. One round of album changes is included. Albums take around 4-6 weeks to deliver once final print approval is given.
How much time do you need on the day for photos?
Typically I allow an hour and a half at both the bride and groom’s home pre-wedding before heading to the ceremony. Wedding days can be very unpredictable and for me to replicate the beautiful work that you see on my website timing is key. Below you will find a typical wedding day timeline which I hope helps plan for your big day.
|11:30-12:00pm||Travel from groom to bride|
|1:30-2:00pm||Travel to ceremony|
|2:30-3:00pm||Congratulation hugs kisses and family photos|
|3:00-3:30pm||Travel to photo location|
|3:30-5:00pm||Formal bridal party photos|
|5:00-5:30pm||Travel to reception|
How many images will I get after my wedding?
Typically for an 8 hour wedding you will receive 600-700 edited hi res images ready to use. For a full day wedding typically, its between 700-900 edited hi res images.
How long do I have to wait to get my photos back?
Unlike many studios I’m happy to guarantee a 4-6 week turnaround of all your final wedding photos.
Do you photograph every wedding personally?
Yes 100%, while some studios feel it’s ok to take bookings and send out less experienced photographers. This is not a practice that I agree with and would ever do. Every image on this website has been shot by me personally.
Can we give you a short list of family photos we want?
You can give me a list of family photos you want, but it is best to give the list to someone who knows all your family and friends like a bridesmaid or groomsmen. Someone who knows everyone and can “wrangle” them together for each shot you want. As I don’t know anyone except yourselves, we would be wasting a lot of time trying to work out who belongs in each photo.
How do we book and how much is the deposit ?
Once we have spoken and confirmed your date is available a booking form will be sent to you. As soon as this has been returned and your deposit of 30% has been paid the wedding date is locked in!
Do we get all the photos you take or do you choose them?
Yes you get them all, the only images I exclude are where people have blinked or shots where the camera has back focused. I know that you will have your own favourites which might not necessarily be mine, so I just include them all and let you decide for yourself.
Where are you located?
I have a dedicated meeting space in the Camden Photo Centre 157 Argyle Street Camden, however if you live closer to the city I also meet people in the Novotel Brighton Le Sands as I actually live closer to the city. So, if you’re keen to meet before you book there are a few options on where to catch up.
