Ok, let’s start here. Take a big old breath in, and exhale.

This is probably the first time you’ve ever done something like this so it’s all a little daunting and you might be a little overwhelmed.

We want you to not just think of us as your wedding photographer but also an old friend, teammate, unofficial wedding party member and guide.

Before the wedding day we provide timeline assistance from a photo perspective and connect with the rest of your vendors so we work together as the ultimate team.

The best photos happen when you’re relaxed so it’s our job to get you to that zen like place where you’re comfortable and ready to get cute or weird or whatever it is you feel like doing on your wedding day.

We’ll capture the photos of your epic floral installation or the custom favors you bought to share with your guests. Did grandma make a bunch of pies for dessert? We’ve got that covered too.

Ultimately we want to fit into your day so well your guests will be asking how long you’ve known us and where we met.

Choosing to share your memories with us means that we’re right there in the action with you every step of the way.

Are you ready? Because we’re pumped.

 FAQ’s

(They’re called frequently asked questions for a reason)

We’re super awkward and not very photogenic, you’ll make us look good right?

For starters I can guarantee you’re not even remotely as close to being as un-photogenic and awkward as you think you are. We’re all our own harshest critics. I like to make sure you’re as relaxed as possible and that often leads to magic happening. We’ll talk about self conscious sticking points before your wedding or session and I’ll make sure I’m all over your best angles.

My venue requires insurance, can you provide this?

Absolutely! We have personal liability insurance of up to $1,000,000. We’re happy to provide your venue with a certificate of insurance 30 days prior to your wedding day.

What happens if you can’t photograph our wedding that we’ve booked you for?

This hasn’t happened yet, but should something prevent me from being able to photograph your wedding I will organise a trusted substitute to be there on my behalf. I’m a part of a big community of professionals who are amazing at stepping up when needed.

 

Can we get all of the RAW images you take?

This is an interesting point of contention in the wedding photography world. My perspective is that you’re paying me for more than just standing there and pressing a button. You’re also paying me for my editing style, curatorial skills and making sure you have a seamless gallery of your wedding so 99.99% of the time you won’t see the RAW images. If you REALLY REALLY BADLY want them I’m happy to let them go for a fee. Let’s talk.

We think we might want albums or prints, what’s the deal?

PSA: PRINT YOUR PHOTOS. Your online gallery is linked to a personal online store where you can design and purchase high quality albums, framed prints and more. I give everything a look over before it’s sent off to the printers but you have creative control over your photos.

What’s the downpayment to book you in?

I usually require a non-refundable 35% retainer to secure your date. I get that weddings are expensive and add up, so if you need to chat about a payment plan please let me know. I can be flexible.
