Yes. I believe you’re paying for me, the artist, so every part of your wedding is edited and finished personally, with oodles of love and care. x

I want you to have your photos while everyone is still buzzing and asking about your amazing day.

I work night and day to deliver all weddings within two weeks. That means a blog and an online gallery of all your photos.

Physical products can take up to an additional six weeks to arrive, and album design sessions take place over the winter months. 🙂

Yes!  Cover flights and accommodation either side of your wedding/shoot, and I’d love to meet you wherever in the world you will be!

I believe that the best photos happen when I can blend in and just be one of your guests. I’ve found that the more cameras there are, the harder it is for your guests to relax and forget they’re being photographed.

With that in mind, I photograph small weddings/elopements and destination weddings solo. With weddings 100< I do bring along a lovely assistant/second shooter, who will help provide another angle for parts of your day.

Yes! With most packages I include a deluxe Proof Book, which is a printed copy of all your photos, numbered for easy reference. Parents and grandparents love these books, as they are a chance to enjoy the whole wedding offline, in their own time.

I also offer albums. I love making the design process fun and collaborative. Come around to my place, have a few wines and over an evening we’ll design the perfect heirloom of your day. 🙂

Oh my gosh, a big huge yes. I think it is SO important to give you lots of memories of you with your guests.

On that note, I love photographing your family, but I’m not a huge fan of formal photos. I think it’s important to take those 3-4 key ones, but I encourage you to have fun with the rest. The best way is to spread them throughout your day. Grab all your school friends at dusk, or your crazy aunties on the dance floor!  I would love to capture you genuinely having fun with your guests, not just staring bored at the camera. 🙂

If you genuinely appreciate each other and the people around you, your wedding will be awesome.

You have permission to take risks. Do you dream of self-catering, or getting your mates up to jam instead of hiring a band? Thinking of getting each other ready, or asking your grandmothers to be bridemaids? Being brave enough to be different will make your day memorable – for you and our guests. I want you to know that there is no script to holding a wedding… so think about what would bring you the most joy and pride to look back on. xx

Yip! I get a LOT of enquiries for some dates, so require a $650 deposit to book you in.

If you cancel your booking the deposit is non-refundable, unless you can find another couple who would like to take your date.

I get asked this a lot! I don’t mind at all, but…

  • Please consider having an ‘unplugged’ ceremony. I like to give you lots of photos of your guests seeing this beautiful, important event. If your dad suddenly gets tears in his eyes, but behind him is your auntie looking at her ipad…. I dunno, it just doesn’t seem as powerful a moment.
  • Just me on the portraits please. If you’ve got mates who’d like to see how wedding photography works, encourage them to book a one-on-one workshop with me. I love to help, just not while on your dime. 🙂

[/spb_text_block] [/spb_accordion_tab] [spb_accordion_tab title=”How long should we schedule for portraits?” accordion_id=”how-long-should-we-schedule-for-portraits-” icon=””] [spb_text_block animation=”none” animation_delay=”0″ padding_vertical=”4″ padding_horizontal=”0″ width=”1/1″ el_position=”first last”]

Totally up to you. Do think of your guests though: two or three hours of hanging out in the hot sun with people they don’t know can be a bit of an ask!

I’ve done one wedding where we ran away for five minutes at a time between rounds of backyard cricket. The guests didn’t miss the couple, and the couple didn’t feel like they were missing out on their day. This is also a great way of getting beautiful portraits in different kinds of light. Ten minutes mid-afternoon, ten minutes mid-evening and ten minutes during golden hour will give you a much more varied and beautiful range of photos than two hours in the harsh midday sun.

I understand, really. That said, Photoshop isn’t a magic bullet.

I don’t Photoshop the images you see on my website, but I instead put LOTS of work into making you look good in-camera. That could be posing directions, lighting, choosing your best side… dunno, I just would rather that you know it’s *you* in the photos. Then when your granddaughter looks at your album, you can 100% truthfully boast “yes, I was that hot”. 😛
