I want to make you feel at ease and confident with who you have chosen to capture your love and tell your story. Here are the most frequently asked questions I receive. Don't hesitate to ask any more!
I'm based in Kingscliff, Australia, but I travel all over the globe to capture love.
You bet I do! Nothing excited me more than the opportunity to shoot a destination wedding or elopement. If you're thinking of taking your celebrations overseas, please get in touch so we can chat about the finer details.
A million times YESS!!! LGBTQIA+, no matter how you identify and regardless of how you define your relationship, I'd love to be a part of your wedding day. Love is love and I'm 100% here for it!
If you and your partner are thinking of skipping the fuss and running off to do a private ceremony with just the two of you or a handful of your nearest and dearest, I'd be absolutely honoured to document your intimate ceremony. Our elopement packages start at 3 hours coverage, so get in touch if you;'d like to learn more.
You'll receive over 600-800 photos, depending on how many hours we shoot and how jam-packed your wedding day is! Each one of my packages varies in how many images are delivered, but I promise I’ll always include plenty of images of everything I capture. I don’t like to give a cutoff number because I don’t believe in withholding any images from you to get you to pay more like some photographers do.
PHOTOS: Firstly, I’ll send you a handful of sneak peek shots a couple of days after your wedding. 4 to 6 weeks later, you’ll receive a link to your online gallery and slide show to watch and relive your wedding day. Around the same time, you’ll also receive a beautiful package in the mail with a USB, prints and a little thank you from me.
FILMS: If you have requested a social media pack, you will receive a trailer with in a month of your wedding! Couples absolutely love this as it is a little teaser of what's to come and you can post this all over your socials! Then 4 to 12 weeks later, you'll receive a link to watch and download your film to watch and go on an emotional rollercoaster. Around the same time, you’ll also receive a beautiful package in the mail with a USB and a little thank you from me.
It will take roughly 4 to 12 weeks to receive your final wedding film. I put a lot of love and care into perfecting each image and film, which is why it'll take me a little bit more time to deliver your final product. When photographing sessions it typically takes 3 weeks or less and weddings take 8 weeks or less. The turnaround depends on how much I shoot, how busy I am, my travel schedule, and the holidays. If you'd like your photos/film sooner, please ask me about the rush fee.
This is your wedding and if you are uncomfortable with your photos/video being shared on my social media platforms, I will respect that.
This never happens and the only reason it would is if it was out of my control (illness, death, border closure, etc). However, if it did, I would do my best to help find a replacement that was similar to my style (I am not legally required to however). I have contacts all over the world that will be able to step in. These are other talented photographers/videographers who will take good care of you. Your money and deposit will be fully refunded if not!
I always encourage embracing whatever weather comes our way, as it’s beautiful and unique in photos. If it is harsh enough that it would make for a shitty time at our shoot and I can reschedule (or ruin my gear), then we totally will!
Life is complicated and the unexpected is to be expected. The deposit is non refundable as this helps to protect my business due to turning away all other booking for your wedding date. I hope you understand that deposit is insurance for my business to stay afloat in the event of a cancellation. If the cancellation or rescheduling is covid related (a lock down), I will reschedule without requiring a new deposit, however, if it is not, then a new deposit will have to be made in order to hold your new date.
I want nothing more than to tell your story and want to work to suit you; so I am more than happy to organise to split your payments into three instalments. Just let me know if this would suit you.
I require a 30% booking fee to secure your spot on my calendar, and the remaining 70% is due 3 months in advance for weddings, 2 months in advance for shoots.
Of course, I'd love for you to print your favourite photos! You can easily order photos prints through your online gallery.
Yes, from years of experience in the wedding industry I have come to work with some absolutely wedding vendors. If you would like a specific recommendations, just reach out and I'm sure I will have some suggestions I can send you.
This year I’m only accepting 30 weddings. I do this so I can give my couples the best experience and photos possible and not spread myself thin. I focus on quality, not quantity. I’m not in this for the money, I’m in this for you.
I have had a few of my couples do so they can make a little trip out of getting photos done. If you want ideas for places in the gold coast/northern nsw to visit, shoot, or explore let me know!
I believe editing is half of the magic and half of my process so I don't send the RAW footage or images. If you feel like I've missed sending a moment, let me know so I can check; I never want to rob you of your memories.
When I am editing, I avoid altering the way you look (other than something temporary like a bruise, blemish, scrape, acne, etc; unless you want me to leave that there!). If you are a little self conscious about something, let me know and I can be extra aware when shooting!
No, my prices are firm.
