WHAT IS YOUR PHOTOGRAPHY STYLE?
I try to capture your day as it happens, fly on the wall style, rather than interfere and try to control the situation. I consider myself a wedding photojournalist more than anything else. I don't do cheese (unless that’s your personality hehe) and I love timeless photos that tell a story. I love showing who you really are, not who I think you should be. If that's crazy and fun; sweet and reserved; or romantic and affectionate, it doesn't matter to me. Be yourselves and I will capture it.
HOW MANY WEDDINGS DO YOU DO A YEAR?
Currently I am taking on a maximum of 25 weddings per year. The most common months are March, April, October, November and December and I would recommend booking your venue and photographer early if you are having a wedding in these months. Don't be put off by winter: May and June are fabulous months and usually dry. September is usually a lot wetter than expected, so always have a Plan B.
HOW DO WE BOOK YOU?
My deposit is $950AUD. The balance of your package is due one month prior to your wedding date. An electronic contract is also required to be signed. I love to meet with people, but I also have many interstate and overseas clients and online bookings are no issue.
DO YOU CHARGE FOR TRAVEL?
Metropolitan Perth does not attract a travel fee. Charges may be applied for weddings outside of this, most commonly the South West. Usually this is one night of accommodation and fuel costs. International bookings usually attract costs of flights, any rental car/transport and three nights of accommodation (depending on flights). All travel arrangements are made via me.
ARE THE PHOTOS EDITED?
All photos that go into your album or ordered as prints via the studio are retouched if necessary and made to look their best. In your gallery and on your digital files, the images are colour corrected and checked for exposure and correct contrast ie proof only. They are ready to print, but are not retouched. Some of your photos will be black and white, as I feel this is a strong component of my more candid and emotional imagery. Please note artistic license is at my discretion. The way I edit is a big part of my style.
DO WE CHOOSE THE IMAGES FOR THE ALBUM?
After the wedding, you will receive the online gallery which you can share with family and friends. In here, you can add all the images you would like in your album into a favourites gallery, which I will be able to see at the admin end. I will use these for the design. I feel it is important for you to choose the images as it is lovely for you to have a hand in the design process and of course, to make sure all your favourite photos and people are included in the album. I design as simply as possible, to keep the emphasis on the story of your day.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO GET OUR ALBUM AND FILES?
You choose the photos you want to go into your album, I let you know if this will incur extra page charges. Once it is all agreed upon, I design the album with your chosen images and pre-determined number of pages without further input. Depending on the type of album, you can expect to receive it between 6-10 weeks after I have ordered it. Your digital files are delivered with the album.
