COVERAGE FROM 10 HOURS ONWARDS !
Generally most weddings are around 10 hours which cover the essentials of getting ready, ceremony, unlimited location shoots and reception formalities. However there are also weddings that can be up to 17 hours onwards due to cultural wedding traditions and tea ceremonies. Please note, once arrival to groom prep (usually first to cover), time between brides, ceremony, locations and reception are included in the coverage and cannot be "paused". If you need more hours, that can be added on if you wish for me to stay right till the end.

All of the photos taken will be delivered in high resolution which can be used for personal use such as printing enlargements and your own albums. Also there will be no ugly watermark slapped on your memories.

TELL ME ABOUT YOUR BIG DAY!
What is your shooting style?
Crackalackin': you'll laugh at me and each other. I very much love celebrating the big day of you and your partner and like to be remembered for being a fun, easy going and authentic wedding photographer.
Documentary: I will put together the story of your big day from getting ready to the end of reception when you both farewell family and guests as they unfold. Little direction and prompts if needed to make your day run smoothly and more efficient.
Non obtrusive: I am very weary of the guests during ceremony and traditions so you can expect that they can also enjoy your big day without being blocked by my fat ass. I do this by using lenses that seem like I'm really up close but I'm actually hidden away somewhere you won't even notice.
Ninja: roaming around capturing giggles, interactions with guests and family, emotive moments, and everything apart of your big day! By the time you find out I have taken the photo, it's already too late ;)
Do you do pencil bookings?
First come, first serve. 2021 limited spots available. 2022/2023 bookings open. $800 to lock in your big day.
We've never done photos before and don't know how to pose.
This is very common. To me, it's not about posing but small directions here and there. The real magic happens between the love you have for each other. I just simply, capture them. I give prompts usually to help out and also the energy from your bridal party will also contribute to the lively atmosphere of your wedding. P.S. All the married couples on my website are not professional models!
What if it rains during the day?
We will grab the umbrellas and embrace in nature. Rain makes everything so much more epic. If it rains heavy, we will seek options under cover because the last thing you want is your hair and makeup soaked.
How many photos will we receive?
I don't necessarily shoot based on numbers - but more on how many different moments can I capture.
If you wanted a number figure- generally about 80+ photos an hour.
When will we receive our wedding photos!?
The same night or the next morning, I can provide you with a few sneak peeks which you can share or update profile photos the next day after your big night !
Your wedding gallery will be finished no later than 2 weeks usually - during peak season under a month.
When will we receive our hand crafted album?
If your package has the hand crafted album, After your online gallery is completed, I should have a draft of your slides in your book and if you are happy with it or want to make some small changes - this can be arranged and then sent off to get printed AFTER YOU GIVE ME THE THUMBS UP ! So another 4-6 weeks for the album to arrive after the online gallery has been delivered :)
How do you receive our wedding photos?
There used to be a time where CDs and USBs were popular but deemed to be unreliable with postage. The best way to receive them now is in an online gallery which is backed up as well. All photos are available in high resolution and can be saved, printed or whatever you would like to do with them.
How do you backup our wedding photos?
Throughout the day, all photos will be recorded onto two SD cards. Moreover, they will also be backed up onto my hard drive and online on the cloud. So you can rest assured that the photos will not be lost or never delivered.
What kind of gear do you use?
I am a Sony Digital Imaging Advocate. I have two A7iii bodies to use on the day which both have dual card slot recordings which prevent me from losing any photos if a card corrupts (has never happened) Better safe than sorry. Also have a variety of lenses that go from 14mm to 200mm :) I also shoot with two cameras at all times to capture different angles and moments that happen at the same time.
What if you're sick?
I have a close connection with a lot other talented photographers that will be able to take my spot if I'm unavailable. If in a situation that no one is available - a full refund will be sent back as well as a complimentary session.
Do you have a secondary shooter?
Most weddings are shot solo by me. In the case your wedding has an excess of over 300 guests then a secondary shooter is handy :) I charge a flat rate of $800 for whole day second shooter coverage if you wish to add another shooter.
Do you have insurance?
Yes I do have insurance for all my equipment and public liability insurance.
Do you travel?
I'm all around Australia Wide and New Zealand - based in Melbourne / Sydney tho. If you are planning on having your wedding overseas or have found my site - the answer is YES - I TRAVEL.
Do you have any dietary requirements?
No but I prefer 3 course dessert meals with 20 cokes.
Do you do meetings?
Regardless if you want to meet me or not before booking or before your wedding day after you've booked, we'll have a chance to meet prior your wedding day to finalise your runsheet and just see how things are going! I normally have majority of my meetings at Westfield Doncaster :) Alternatively we can video call to discuss your big day ! :D
If you have any more questions, feel free to shoot me an enquiry and I'd be happy to answer anything that comes along your way! <3
