Below are some things I get asked a lot - if you're not seeing what you need on here please get in touch so I can answer your question!
Are you an accredited photographer?
Yes, I have a degree in photography from the University of Brighton, UK as well as having worked in the industry for over 8 years.
When will I see my photos?
For headshot photography and brand photography I endevour to get your images back to you as quickly as possible, which is usually within a week. For couples, newborn photography and family photography sessions it's usually one to two weeks. For wedding photography it's usually four weeks - plus a sneak peak of the best bits within 24 hours of the ceremony.
What should I wear to the shoot?
I get asked this a lot so I'm putting together a blog post with some suggestions to help you look your best on the day. Follow me on Facebook or Instagram and I'll be sure to let you know as soon as it's up.
What does a typical wedding look like?
The photos usually start with a visit to the groom as he gets ready, followed by bride preparations, then the ceremony, a group photo including all the guests and then family photos.
After that we do the bridal party photos and then head to the reception for speeches, cake cutting and first dance.
How long do bridal party sessions usually go for and where do we do them?
Bridal party sessions usually go for 1-3 hours. They can take place on the location of the ceremony if it suits or we can head to another location close by depending on time. It's worth remembering that the time of year and time of sunset can have a big impact on getting great photos - for beautiful photos you need good light.
What happens if it rains on the day and we have an outdoor wedding planned?
It's always a good idea to have a back-up plan for outdoor weddings. This can be a marquee if the ceremony is in the open or have a venue either organised in case you need move inside. For the bridal party photos, matching umbrellas are a nice touch and a must if it's wet and you want to look as good for the reception as you do at the ceremony.
Can we have a second shooter on the day?
Absolutely, having a second photographer adds so much to your day as they provide a second perspective and double the photos! This is a great idea for larger weddings. If you're interested in this option let me know, I have worked with some brilliant photographers who would love to be a part of your day.
How many photos will I get?
I don't cap the amount of photos taken during the day. I will shoot to my heart's content, delete all the duplicates that are not needed and then process and edit all the rest. There is no back and forth deciding on what photos you want me to edit, I simply give you all the photos, professionally edited from the day.
How will I receive my photos?
When your photos are ready, I will email you a link to your own password-protected online gallery. You can share this link with family and friends and from here you'll be able to order prints and albums. If your package includes a USB this will be sent to you from Brisbane via AusPost at the same time the online gallery goes live.
Can I choose which photos are in my album?
Normally I select which photos go into the album to best describe and tell the story of the day. If there are any special photos that you want in the album I can easy add them in upon request.
Do you travel outside of Brisbane?
Yes, I am happy to travel for weddings within two hours of Brisbane CBD and that's included in the package price. For anything further afield there will be an additional cost to cover my time and travel expenses.
Do you stop the clock for travel time between each part of the day?
No, I don't stop the clock for travel time. If you book me for 8 hours and there is 2 hours of travel time in total between each location, it's still paid for. You book me for the hours required from start of day til the end of day.
What guarantees do you provide for wedding bookings?
I've never had to miss a booking yet, but in the unlikely event that something happens on or before your day I will provide a full refund and do my best to help you find another photographer.
Are you insured?
Yes, I have full public liability insurance, so you can relax on the day knowing that everything's taken care of.
