CONGRATULATIONS, what an amazing time in your life!
There are so many beautiful moments that happen at weddings, from the proud look on a father's face, the nervous but excited anticipation of the groom, the cheeky flower girl, and of course the joy of a couple who are deeply in love! These are the important moments and memories that tell the story of your day, and you want to have full trust that your photographer will capture it all for you! I’m all about giving you the confidence to relax, have fun and enjoy every minute! During the day I aim to be as unobtrusive as possible, particularly for the important moments such as the ceremony and speeches. There is nothing worse than a photographer who steals focus! My style is a mix of natural, romantic, and fun, plus I'm obsessed with chasing the perfect light!
My packages start at $3000 for 6hr coverage and includes digital files along with a print credit. For the full price list, please send an enquiry from the contact page. I also offer a selection of beautiful Australian made albums, along with canvases, professional printing and thank you cards. To see examples of my photography style please scroll down to the collection of images.
LGBTQI couples are very welcome, as I absolutely support marriage equality and every love story needs to be celebrated!
Frequently Asked Questions:
What gear do you use?
I have two cameras a Canon 1d mark iv and a Canon 5d mark iv. I then have a mix of different L-series lenses.
What's your vibe like on the day?
I'm definitely a people person who doesn't mind a bit of cheeky banter with the bridal party, but I also like to be a calming presence for my couples. I can take charge and keep things running to the schedule, but I like to have fun along the way. As anyone who's ever been to a wedding knows, the family photos can be a big thing to organise, but don't worry, I'm perfectly capable of wrangling those unruly relatives!
Can I print my own photos?
Yes, absolutely! I do have a professional printing service, however you will receive a high res Jpeg copy of all the images and you're welcome to print them at your leisure.
Please be aware poorer quality printers can greatly impact the colour and contrast of the finished image. I'd recommend that any special ones for your wall or to give family members are done through a professional lab.
How long after the wedding will I receive my photos?
I always do a sneak peek of around 5 images within a couple days of the big event, the rest of the images are processed and ready to view within 8 to 10 weeks. During that time I also create a highlight slideshow of around 100 images for you to share with family and friends.
Do you travel?
Most definitely! I love photographing in new locations and discovering gorgeous new venues. Depending on how far away the location is in from Young, travel and/or accommodation fees may be applied. This will be determined at the time of booking, based on the hours covered in chosen package and the location.
Yes please! I absolutely love to travel and would be happy to create a customised quote to suit your fabulous wedding plans. So far I've travelled for weddings in Ireland, Fiji and the Kimberley, WA.
Depending on the location of the wedding the total price will vary, with airfares, accommodation, car hire etc to be considered in the quote.
Do you have a second shooter?
Although alone I can cover all the special moments and some, a second photographer can be a great advantage as they can candidly snap lots of wonderful moments of guests and the bridal party while I'm focusing on the more formal aspects of the day. I have a wonderful group of photographers whom I work with regularly, and all have many years experience. If you would like to have a second photographer involved in the day, the cost would be an additional $750.
Do you have insurance?
I have public liability insurance and all of my camera equipment is also insured.
How much experience do you have?
I have been working as a full-time photographer since 2005, and photographed my first wedding in 2008. On average I photograph around 30 weddings a year.
How far in advance should I book?
I generally find that most clients book anywhere between 8 months to a year and a half in advance. I only ever do one wedding per day so it's best to book in as soon as your date is confirmed in order not to miss out.
