Frequently

Asked

Can we meet you before booking?

Definitely and I do recommend this so we can make sure my approach lines up with how you want your wedding photographed. If you'd like to meet before locking anything in we'll grab a coffee on the Gold Coast and we'll start chatting about how everything will work on your dayIf you're interstate or overseas then we'll chat over zoom.

How long until we receive our photos?

I'll send you through a handful of photos (10-20) within five days of your wedding. The rest will be sent through within 12 weeks depending on my workload at the time.

All of the photos will be delivered through an online gallery where you'll be able to download all of the full res, print ready versions as well as versions that are optimised for socials.

What's your covid policy?

If your wedding has to be rescheduled due to covid restrictions or a lockdown, the deposit will be forfeit and a new deposit will need to be made for the new date. Hopefully this doesn't come across harsh and you guys understand that I have to keep myself afloat during this time. Hopefully we don't have to deal with lockdowns after 2021 so we wont have to reschedule any weddings throughout 2022/2023.

What's your back up process for the photos?

I shoot with cameras that all have dual memory cards which means all of your photos are backed up immediately in real time. I instantly have two copies of all your photos as soon as they're taken. When I get back to my studio I back up the photos on three different hard drives including one off site hard drive (on the complete off chance that my studio burns down). I will always have three copies of all your photos, in multiple locations up until they're delivered to you.

How many photos will we receive?

I don't limit the number of photos you'll receive but on average around 400-500. I deliver a very curated gallery that best tells the story of your day with the most important photos.

Why the wait?

I pride myself on delivering very polished photos and to do this, it does take a bit of time, but its worth it. The editing of your photos is just as important as the photography itself. The last thing I'd want to do is deliver you sub-par images that you'll have for the rest of your life just to get them to you quickly. This is why I deliver 10-20 photos within five days, so you don't have to wait the full 12 weeks before you see any photos.

Will I have the printing rights to the photos?

Yeah definitely. I won't restrict your photos from you in any way. They're your photos. I do offer very high quality prints through the gallery I deliver your photos to. However you don't have to print them through me, you can print them wherever you like.

How do we book?

Once you decide you'd like to go ahead send through a message through my contact page and we'll go from there. I take a $1,000 deposit to secure the date and I'll send through a contract. Once the contract is signed and deposit made, that will lock your date with me. We'll then organise the best time to meet (usually 6 months before the day, over coffee). This is where we'll discuss everything about your day. You can also call/email with any questions you have between booking and our meeting.
