FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Are you the photographer

FOR US?

I’m a documentary kind of photographer, dedicated to capturing your day, however it unfolds. I don’t plan, orchestrate or compose; I simply allow events to take place naturally before me as I capture whatever occurs.

How will you approach our wedding?

My intention is to be as unobtrusive as possible so that I can get to the honest truth of your day and so that your photographs are an accurate representation of what occurred, how it felt and the little moments and details that made your wedding unique and your own.

I hope to be mistaken for an over eager guest with a new camera. I like to blend in and capture the entirety of the day in a documentary style to the extent that it is not apparent that I’m your professional photographer.

If it’s hundreds of posed or group photographs that you want, I’m probably not your best choice.

I do however think there is a definite place for group photographs of family and friends that have attended your wedding; I just don’t believe you need a professional photographer to capture those, although I can if that is what you would like, but it will mean there will be less time for spontaneous photographs to be caught.

Alternatively, I suggest you ask or even hire a close family member, friend or local amateur photographer to spend the time coordinating and taking these kinds of photographs.

How would you describe your style?

Relaxed, unobtrusive, honest, and raw.

I won’t boss you around, tell you what to do on your day, or set up inauthentic scenes. I will simply be present and responsive to whatever happens.

How many photographs will we receive?

I don’t limit the number of photographs I take or deliver, because that will always depend on the specific circumstances of the day, but I can give a conservative estimate of between 40 and 60 photographs per hour.

I believe it is more important to deliver quality over quantity, so that every photograph you receive has been selected, taken, and processed with the utmost care and consideration.

How long until you deliver our photographs?

I will deliver your fully processed photographs within 6-8 weeks of your wedding, often sooner, depending on the season.

After final delivery, you will have the opportunity to make purchases of prints, albums, or framed photographs through the online gallery. If you have something in particular in mind that you cannot locate in the store, just get in contact and I’m sure I can help you with it.

What area do you serve?

The majority of weddings that I photograph are in the Wollongong/Illawarra, South Coast, Southern Highlands, or Sutherland Shire regions of NSW.

I have also photographed weddings in Victoria, South Africa, and Bali. If you are planning a wedding outside of NSW or overseas, do get in touch and I’ll provide you with a custom package according to your specific circumstances.

Travel fees are calculated according to those circumstances, including destination, airfares, fuel, accommodation, car hire and any other expenses incurred as a result of your wedding location.

PLEASE NOTE:

Bookings are not secured until your non-refundable booking fee has been received and contract signed. Bookings are confirmed on a first booking fee received basis.
