Prints & Albums
Fine art prints:
I absolutely love printing my work for my clients. I offer a range of fine art prints with a beautiful colour profile, archival inks printed on to 240gsm cotton based canson paper, with a gorgeous watercolour texture. These prints are sure to last a lifetime.
Starting at $30 incl. GST for sizes 6" x 4" and 5" x 7".
Fine art albums:
As a qualified graphic designer I can custom create a beautiful fine art album with a story board of your wedding day to a size and specification that suits your personal style. All albums are printed with fine art matte finish paper and archival quality inks. You'll be able to choose your album cover design, and how many pages you would like.
Albums range in price from $450 to $1500.
What is your style of photography?
I would best describe my style as candid and natural, mixing photojournalism with traditional portraiture techniques. My images reflect my love of clean composition and natural light, helping you to look naturally gorgeous! I'll be there to capture everything and yet you often won't notice me there at all. There is a skill in the balance of knowing when to stay back and capture the candid moments or when to step in and take advantage of great light and shot opportunities. Throughout the day I will capture a mix of candid moments, along with all of those essential shots you want to look back on with your family post-wedding. Lots of love, friends and family and lots of laughs. I also love accentuating the natural environment or architecture of the space we're shooting in; paying homage to the wonderful region or venue we're lucky enough to be enjoying on our shoot!
Do you travel for weddings?
Absolutely, I have shot all over the ACT and NSW. Everywhere from Canberra, regional ACT and the Southern Highlands, all the way to Wollongong, Sydney, the Hunter Valley, the South Coast, the Snowy Mountains and even out West! Regional weddings are simply charged as either one or two nights accommodation on top of standard booking charges.
I am yet to be lucky enough to shoot a destination wedding, but I would be interested in negotiating a wonderful rate for international weddings, making it well worth your while!
Can we have a second shooter?
Please rest assured I have your weddings in very capable hands should you take me on. I primarily shoot solo for the most-part, and I actually think it can be easier in some ways. For instance, I can more easily mingle and form connections with you and your guests, and I am more absorbed with my work on the day as I don't have to delegate or direct while I'm working. However, if you have a rather large wedding, or a wedding with location challenges (i.e. large distances to travel between wedding parties), it can be a good option to employ a second shooter. I simply require as much notice as possible, and I charge this out at an additional $90 per hour, accounting for wages and additional time editing the surplus of photos.
Can we meet with you to discuss our wedding?
Yes please! What better way than to meet, chat and bond to ensure we're a good fit - and that we have an absolute blast working together! If you are unable to meet me for a coffee at some point, we could sit down over a wine on the phone, FaceTime or Skype and have a chat about your plans for the day.
How many hours coverage will we need?
This is different for every wedding. I do offer a 5 hour package which covers essential bride prep through to the bride & groom entrance at the reception. My most popular photography coverage packages are between 8-9 hours which covers both bride and groom prep through to around 3-4 hours at the wedding reception to include the speeches, cake, bridal waltz and even your grandpa busting out some excellent vintage dance moves. Additional coverage is always available no matter how much more you would like covered. I can offer elopement and mid-week mini wedding photography packages which are generally around up to 3 hours of coverage.
Do you have a limit to how many images you take on the day?
No way, hosé! Every wedding is amazingly different and provides a unique array of shot opportunity; so there is no one answer for how many images I will take/handover. I don't like to budget on shots taken or shots handed over, I just want to make sure I capture all of the details and moments that form the story of the day, no matter how extravagant or minimalist they may be.
Should we provide you with a meal at our reception?
For a wedding package of 5 hours or less, I'm probably all good. However if we're interstate it might be handy! For my longer packages with reception coverage, a meal would be much appreciated. I am flexible and I don't demand this as a term of booking, but your understanding is much appreciated. I am working a very physically demanding day, and after hours galloping around, directing and shooting on my feet I am generally ready for a meal. I am known to do my best work on a full stomach after all!
Do you shoot LGBTQ weddings?
Yes, yes, yes! I strongly believe that love is love and marriage is a right and privilege that everybody should enjoy. As a wedding photographer it's one of my utmost desires to see marriage equality happen, hopefully during my career! I would not only be delighted, but completely honored to shoot you while you marry your favourite person!
Do you offer albums and prints?
Hells yeah! Print your photos peeps! As amazing as technology, social media and digital picture files are... Please ask me about my print and album packages! Printed memories are forever. And there is nothing more amazing than sharing the memories and stories of your day; flipping through photos, books, albums or viewing them every day on your wall! Something to show the grand kids one day, right? Let's talk more about that fo sure.
We feel awkward in front of the camera - can you help us?
I know those feels. It's can be daunting to be in front of a big camera (trust me, I've tried it a few times), but please don't worry. I got you! It's my job to guide you through our portrait sessions in a way that makes you feel comfortable with me, and I'll talk you through posing that's not awkward or unflattering. I will also simply hang out with you - allowing a more natural shoot and together - with your willingness to try and my bad jokes - we will take some awesome photos!
Will you Photoshop me?
Yes and no. You will be guided on how to look your best while we are actually taking the photographs (if needed). However, if required in post-production I will make minor edits using Lightroom and Photoshop tools. I will always make sure that you can't really tell there has been work done. I am a firm believer that natural is best, and we are all wonderful just the way we are; but I appreciate that a few tweaks can really lift a shot. Particularly if it's to do with colours and toning, I am all about accentuating the best aspects of the shot. We can talk more about this if you'd like!
We're keen! How do we book?
Yay! I can't wait to hear from you. Please contact me to either arrange a coffee/wine date or view a copy of my contract. Upon exchange of contract a $1500 retainer is required within 14 days to secure your date. I do not hold dates without an exchange of contract. The remainder of your balance is due 14 days ahead of your event.
