How long after the wedding will we receive the photos? 

I aim to have the finished photos to my clients within approximately 4 weeks from their wedding date. But during the busier seasons, things can take a little longer. At the most 4-6 weeks.

How long is the typical coverage for a wedding day? 

On average for most of my clients the typical coverage is around 8-12 hours.

Will you edit the photos?
Yes I edit all my photos using Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop.

What is your shooting style?
I don’t like to be intrusive, so for the most part my style is very candid, relaxed and photojournalistic. I aim to capture you just as you are and unless I ask you to look at the camera that is exactly what I am doing. I aim to capture the key moments of your day so I can put it all together to tell an editorial style story of your wedding day. However during the portraits I will offer some helpful direction. I always aim to seek out the best possible light and use the natural environment to allow the emotion and personalities of my subjects to shine through.

Is photography your full time job?
Certainly is.

Are you a member of any professional photography organisations?
Yes, I am a fully accredited professional photographer with the Australian Institute of Professional Photography (AIPP).

My wedding will be held outside of Sydney, do you travel?
Yes, definitely. I love to travel. All I ask is for you to cover my petrol and if applicable flights & accommodation costs.

Are you able to take the typical family shots at a wedding?
Yes, of course. The best time is straight after the ceremony and it usually takes about 10-20 minutes. A printed list of immediate family is very helpful for me too.

What camera equipment do you use?
I use Canon professional grade cameras and lenses.

Do you have backup equipment?
I always carry at least 2 cameras to every wedding along with many lenses, spare batteries and lots of memory cards to ensure I can keep shooting throughout the entire day.

How many photographers will be at my wedding?
My base collection includes one photographer (me). But I always encourage my clients to think about including a second photographer in their package (especially for larger scale weddings). It offers an additional dimension to your wedding day allowing for the guests and events of your day to be covered from many different angles and perspectives. A second photographer is included in collections of 10hrs + coverage.

How much time should I allocate for photos throughout the day?

Every wedding different, but please use the below timings as a guide:

* Groom getting ready – 30mins – 1hr

* Bride getting ready – 1.5 – 2hrs

* Family & Group shots – 15 – 25mins

*  Location Photos – 1.5 – 2hrs

Please remember to factor in ample travel time between venues and locations and also take note of the sunset time on your wedding date to ensure that we get plenty of natural light on the location/portrait shoot. Click here to view the sunset times for Sydney in 2014.

Are you able to print the images for us?
Absolutely, I am all for that. I always use a professional fine art print lab who use the highest quality papers available today.

Apart from weddings, what do you like to photograph?
I love to travel and photograph amazing places and landscapes.

I get a DVD with the images so why would I want an album?
Let’s face it we live busy lives and are time poor. I am sure many people who say they are going to make their own album or print out some photos to put on their walls never end up doing it. Seeing your photos on a computer screen does not have the same feeling as the texture and smell of a fine art photo album and that’s why I recommend it. My Fine Art Albums are seamless (lay-flat style) and printed on thick (archival quality) matte paper, ensuring a perfect heirloom for future generations to enjoy and relive the best day of your lives.

Do you offer engagement sessions/couple portrait sessions?
Yes. I love engagement sessions! Not only are they a great way for me to get to know my clients better, they are also a great practice run and I find that the images created are often used for invitee or on the actual wedding day.
