How many hour of photography do I need on the day?
Planning a wedding day can be difficult and knowing how long you will require your photographer for can be hard to know beforehand. Below you will find a typical wedding day timeline which I hope helps plan for your big day, simply adjust travel times based on your locations to give you a better idea of what you may need for your special day.
|12:30-12:45pm||Travel from groom to bride|
|2:15-2:30pm||Travel to ceremony|
|3:00-3:30pm||Congratulation hugs kisses and family photos|
|3:30-3:45pm||Travel to photo location|
|3:45-4:45pm||Formal bridal party photos|
|4:45-5:00pm||Travel to reception|
|5:00-5:15pm||Photograph reception room details|
|7:00 or 9:30pm||Photographic coverage concludes depending on chosen package|
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.
How does the album ordering process work post wedding?
Post wedding a 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 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 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.
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.
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!
Where are you located?
I have a dedicated meeting space in the Camden Photo Centre 157 Argyle Street Camden, if you’re keen to meet before you book please get in touch to organise a in person meeting or a zoom video call.
