investing in your memories
A $500 booking fee and signed contract is required to secure your wedding date.
I work closely with a limited number of couples per year, simply send me an enquiry to check my availability.
Weddings are a celebration of love and every wedding is different, as is every love story. Let’s encompass your individual style into your photographs and truly tell a unique story.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I photograph in an intimate, relaxed way and try to use natural lighting as often as possible. My sessions are candid & fun! My style itself is natural, romantic and light.
Q: What exactly will you shoot on the day?
A: I do not use a specific “shot” list however I do have a method to how I shoot the day. This can vary depending on your chosen collection, but generally speaking I shoot the following: bridal preparation & details, pre-ceremony groom waiting, groom seeing bride, vows, rings kiss & crowd, signing, congratulations, family portraits, bridal portraits, reception entrance & details, any dancing speeches & formalities i.e cake cut or garter toss. Within the coverage I am looking for candid real moments to capture the truest reflection of your day.
Q: How many photographs will we receive?
A: On average, I deliver 100 images per hour of coverage. This does vary depending on how much travel you have on your wedding. I remove any unflattering or duplicate images and you receive the rest. These come in a beautiful box filled with prints and a USB of your images in high resolution.
Q: When you say editing what does that include?
A: Your images will be carefully colour corrected, cropped, lighting adjustments applied, contrast tweaked and edited in my signature style. I also apply a mild skin smoothing to all images to reduce pores and lines; this is not re-touching. Retouching is available and is an extra service, I am happy to quote you for any re-touching.
Q: How long will it take to receive our wedding images?
A: In wedding season it can take a little longer and the maximum time frame is 12 weeks, However on average i deliver weddings within 4 - 6 weeks from your wedding date.
Q: Would you recommend an unplugged wedding?
A: Yes! I would suggest at minimum an unplugged ceremony. I often see family and friends taking photos on their phones and even ipads and not being present in the moment. For me, I find that when people are using phones and cameras they unknowingly get in the way and I could be forced to get a less desirable image in trying to avoid them.
Q: Do you offer payment plans?
A: Yes. You have the option to pay your booking fee with at least 50% of the remaining balance due 14 days prior to the wedding. I offer an extension of 8 weeks after the wedding to finalise the balance. No images or previews will be received until the balance is paid.
Q: Can you customize a collection for us?
A: Yes, I would be happy to chat about your wedding coverage needs and create a collection that is tailored to your individual wedding day. Please let me know when you enquire that you would like to customise a collection.
Q: Do you charge for travel?
A: It depends on your location. Most local Gold Coast or Tamborine Mountain weddings
are not charged travel as they are local to me. If you are outside of my local area, there may be
a travel charge. I will let you know when you enquire if there is a travel fee.
Q: Are you L G B T Q I friendly?
A: Yes Of course! I believe love is love and every couple is equal.
