2nd photographer option
(Recommended for Weddings of 120 guests and more) Both the bride and groom can now be documented separately in the lead up to the wedding ceremony. Strategies during the ceremony can include the use of different style photography lenses and possibly different perspectives on the day. During the festivities it will take some considerable time to get around to all the guests and record their attendance in a social aspect.

Videographer
In connection with a 2nd photographer you may prefer to have a videographer to capture the ceremony and reception. Everything from a simple short montage with music that can be used for social media through to a detailed documentary style full length video and audio. Full video production included, supplied on DVD and MP4 file.

FAQ
When will my wedding photos be ready?

Your wedding package products will be ready within 2-4 weeks from the day of your wedding - 
In reasonable time after returning from your honey moon. Please be patient however as a lot of time is invested into the post-production process. I individually edit each photo, which can take days to complete and then review them days later for a 2nd round of editing and corrections. Other products such as your wedding album or book may arrive at a later date.

How many photos do I get?

How many photos would you like? This is a number agreed with you as part of your wedding photography package that will go through to post production. Not to worry, you can always change the number after the wedding day. This comes down to the time spent at the wedding, prior to the wedding and the reception; I try to document everything! If I believe you have cut yourself short, I will edit additional photos at my expense and present these to you as an option to purchase.

Can I get my wedding photos as digital files?

Yes. These are presented to you on DVD that can be read on any player. You will get high-resolution images in JPG format ready for you to copy and re-print on demand as well as low-resolution copies ready to be posted onto social media websites.

Will you be retouching my photos?

Yes. Its standard practice by all photographers and is considered to be an art – this is what you are really paying for! The era of digital photography has now made way to better techniques of producing iconic images; I have nearly 20 years experience using Photoshop (since the day it was invented) and other software techniques. My technique is to make the images look as though they had never been retouched in the first place. All blemishes can be removed; lighting corrections, cropping and detailed feature enhancements are the key to draw attention to the eye.

What if it rains on our wedding day? Where can we have our location shoot done?

We always have a backup plan! This is something that is discussed with you prior to the day in respect to the location of the ceremony and reception.

Do you travel outside Sydney?

Absolutely! While I mostly cover the Sydney, Wollongong and Newcastle areas including the popular Hunter Valley and Blue Mountains, it’s an easy process to fly in and out on the wedding day or to stay a night at the location. Other trending locations outside of Australia for a wedding include Bali and Thailand.

Can you create a wedding video also?

A second wedding photographer/videographer can be booked for the day to capture the ceremony. I do recommend a creative ceremony montage to compliment your wedding photo memories that can also be easily used for social media.

What if we want you to extend your service by a few hours on the day?

Not a problem! I generally keep the entire day free just for your special occasion incase your agenda changes at the last minute. If during the last hour you would like me to stay longer to capture more of the post celebrations, this is done at your word on a prior agreed hourly rate.

What advice can you give us newly weds as an experienced wedding photographer?

Relax! If you’re stressed, your photos will come out stressed! It’s a day to enjoy - planning is the key! If you are not using a wedding planner, have a fully written wedding plan and supply this to all the key people involved. Allow plenty of time between stages of your wedding to allow for mishaps and time delays. Enjoy the spontaneity of the day.
