Frequently Asked Questions
We have a documentary style approach to photographing your wedding day. Here’s what documentary means to us and forms the basis of how we approach your day:
Capturing real and honest moments as they happen, without interfering or controlling your day in any way. However direction will be given when it is needed.
Instead of making you pose it up in a paddock for hours, I think it’s more important for you to spend that time with your family and friends.
Being non-intrusive, but not invisible.
Real and honest photos that tell a story.
For some relaxed portraits, you’ll only need to be away from your guests for about 30-45 minutes at the most as you would rather be spending time with them (that’s ok we don’t take offense). To save time, the portraits will be taken at your ceremony or reception venue, or somewhere very close by.
This short portrait session is a bit more hands-on than the rest of the day. Don’t worry though, I think ‘pose’ is a dirty word too. And I hate cheesy wedding photos as much as you do.We have lots of little tricks up our sleeve to make you feel comfortable and get you laughing and smiling naturally. We get you focusing on each other rather than the camera.
Portrait photos are best taken 1 hour before sunset. You can check out the following site for sunset times. (www.timeanddate.com). During the summer this can fall right in the middle of your reception. If this is the case, and I see a killer sunset with the most beautiful light ever, I might just pull you away for 5-10 minutes just to make the most of it. Trust me it’s worth it.
Yes absolutely. We support marriage equality and will photograph all weddings.
Yes and Yes. You will be able to print the images at 11”x14” (approx A3 size). You will be granted a usage license for the sole purpose of images being used for personal use only.
As we are committed to providing you with a full service, all images are edited to our timeless style which includes colour correction, exposure adjustment and some skin retouching. We do not provide unedited RAW files.
A small number of family photos and relaxed portraits can be taken on your wedding day. Family photos may not be the most creative part of the day, but for many couples they’re still quite important. If you’d like some family photos, we recommend that you allow around 20 minutes for them. Usually these will happen after your ceremony once you’ve finished hugging and mingling with your guests. Closer to your wedding date we’ll give you tips on how to make this part of the day run as smoothly as possible.
No. Your images are meant for printing so they will not be watermarked.
There is no limit to the number of images that you will receive, but to give you a general idea and based on a 8 hour wedding it will a minimum of 300. Shorter coverage weddings will receive around 200 and Elopements approx around 100.
First thing – don’t stress! Photos in the rain can actually be quite nice. Naturally if it’s raining at a 90 degree angle I’m not going to make you stand in the rain. We can look at a nice bar or undercover somewhere, great photos can still be done indoors. However as my philosophy is to stay real to the day as possible, if it’s just spitting and the weather is bearable then I have umbrellas. Trust me, photos in the rain are lovely.
Yes absolutely I can do that. As I do like the stay true to the day as possible I’m not going to be giving lots of orders on the day (except when absolutely necessary), I will give lots of information prior to the day so we can get the best results
