HOW MANY PHOTOS WILL I GET?

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

You can expect to receive a between 50-65 images per hour booked. So if you book a 10 hour package, you could receive up to 650 images. And trust me, that is more than enough images that you'll want to go through from your wedding day.

For weddings, I have multiple different packages starting from $4,490. Reach out via my enquiry form here to view them.

For anything lifestyle, my packages can be found on each section of my services page.

WHAT IS YOUR STYLE?

DO YOU TRAVEL?

I'm really laid back and pride myself on being able to create a relaxed environment for you to truly be yourselves. I want to capture not only what your day or life looks like, but felt like.

My images reflect a timeless, romantic and candid style by using as much natural light as possible. So I will only use a flash when the sun goes down as I want to capture the mood & precise feeling of moments, without artificially altering it.

Absolutely! I love to travel, and nowhere is off limits!

For weddings, there are no travel fees for any wedding within a 2 hour drive of the Northern Beaches of Sydney. However, for longer drives, interstate and international bookings, I have fixed travel fees which I'll send out to you upon your initial enquiry.

For lifestyle shoots (e.g. family or maternity), my price includes travel to anywhere with 30minutes of the Northern Beaches.

DO I NEED A SECOND PHOTOGRAPHER?

WHAT IF I'M CAMERA SHY?

Don’t worry, you’re not the only one! In fact 99% of my clients with tell me at some point that they hate photos. People always look their best when they’re natural and able to be themselves. So I'll be there to guide you and make you feel at ease. Ensuring you are in your safe zone around me means we can get those beautiful, natural, unguarded shots that truly capture how you are feeling on your wedding day.

I like to take a step back and observe, capturing the real smiles, the real laughter and of course the real affection, but with the right amount of guidance and direction.

I am more than happy to help you decide whether you need a second photographer or not.

Opting for one can absolutely elevate your overall experience. The additional perspective, comprehensive coverage, and diverse styles that a second photographer brings offer a more holistic representation of your special day.

Ultimately, your decision depends on your budget, the size of your wedding, distance between venue locations and your personal preferences. If you have the means and desire to have every significant moment documented, considering a second photographer is undoubtedly worth it. However, if you don’t have the budget, have a more relaxed wedding vibe, less than 100 guests and don’t really like the idea of having too many cameras around on your special day, then you may not need one.

I'll chat with you about it first before deciding whether we should or need to add a second photographer to your chosen package or not.

ARE YOUR IMAGES WATERMARKED?

Absolutely not! The images you receive online will not have any watermarks on them.

WHAT IF WE HAVE TO CANCEL OR RESCHEDULE OUR WEDDING?

CAN I GET A COPY OF THE RAW FILES?

Unfortunately, not. However, you will receive high resolution images, edited in a manner that’s reflective of my style. These images will allow you to print canvases, large prints, and a host of other items. The raw files are basically the foundation that provides me the latitude to edit and create a photo, so think of a raw image as cake batter. There’s a good chance cake batter isn’t something you want to enjoy, but once we've baked it, frosted it, and added some sprinkles, you’ll get precisely what you wanted: a beautiful cake.

Hopefully you’re hiring me to document your wedding because you’re attracted to my style of photography, so the images you get as part of your wedding day will reflect just that.

Unfortunately, your retainer and travel fees are non-refundable. The retainer guarantees that I exclusively hold your wedding date for you, and I will actively turn down all other enquiries for that date.

However, if you do find yourself in that situation, please get in contact to discuss your personal circumstance and I will see if there’s something I can do.

WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU CAN'T ATTEND OUR WEDDING?

CAN YOU HELP US WITH OUR WEDDING DAY TIMELINE?

I have never not made it to a wedding. This would only happen if it were out of my control (an act of god, serious illness, death, etc). In this case I would do my best to help find a replacement associate photographer to take my place that I trust, or you can receive a full refund.

Absolutely! In fact, consulting with me on your timeline can help to ensure we have the right amount of time for things like family, bridal party portraits, and of course those gorgeous sunset shots!

I have put together a wedding timeline guide which explains how long each section of the day approximately takes. It also has a summer and winter timeline template which you can use as your base.

DO I NEED TO PROVIDE YOU WITH A SHOT LIST?

WHEN IS A GOOD TIME TO BOOK YOU IN?

As soon as your wedding venue is booked, I would suggest locking me in very near afterwards! Keep in mind that I can be booked out for popular wedding dates 12-18 months in advance.

I believe that each couple deserves my utmost attention and care. Because of this, I also only take on a limited number of weddings per year.

The only shot list I may ask for is for the family portraits. Because I won’t know your guests, I may ask you to assign one organised (a.k.a. bossy) family member from each side to help corral members for photos. This will allow me to not miss anyone out, and keeps everything and everyone organised.

DO YOU OFFER VIDEOGRAPHY?

HOW DO WE BOOK?

Send through an enquiry via the contact page. As I only take on a limited amount of bookings per year, it is on a first-come, first-served basis. To secure your spot, I just require a signed agreement and a 20% booking fee.

Unfortunately I don’t. I like to stick to what I'm good at, but I do know a couple of amazing videographers whom I could forward you onto, so feel free to ask for those.

DO YOU HAVE INSURANCE?

ARE YOU FULLY VACCINATED?

I definitely do! Some venues actually require this, so I’m more than happy to send over a copy.

Yes, I am. All my associates and second shooters are also fully vaccinated.

I hope I provided you answers to all your photography and wedding photography questions.
