FAQ's

Where are you based & do you travel?

I live and work in Wagga Wagga, NSW, Australia.
But I am happy to travel anywhere at all! Just inquire about your location and we can work out all of the details. My dream is to one day shoot a wedding in New Zealand!

Do we get all of the photos you took on the day?

Yes, I don't have a limit of how many photos I give to you!
But I do take A LOT of photos on the day, which I then go through and cull all of the ones with peoples eyes shut or not looking or double ups etc..
So yes, you get all of the GOOD photos that I take on the day! I usually deliver my wedding clients around 500-700 photos.

Do we meet up before the shoot?

Yes!! I always meet my couples at least 2 months before their wedding day.
If for some reason we can't meet in person I am happy to skype or even have a phone call but I think it's very important for us to meet each other so we both can make sure we can work together on the day.
I live out of town so I can either travel to your house/office etc or we can meet up at a cafe.

How long does it take for the photos to come back?

It normally takes me between 2-4 weeks to get your whole gallery back to you. I always send through at least 10 sneak peak photos the next day (or day after) your wedding day because I know how exciting it is to want to share the photos as soon as possible with your friends and family.

How far in advance should I book with you?

I typically book out popular wedding dates (March/October/November months) a year if not more in advance so as soon as you lock your date in it's a good idea to contact me.

How long should we allow for photos between the ceremony & reception?

It really depends on your own timeline on the day but I like to allow 1.5 to 2 hours after the ceremony and family photos have finished and until the reception starts.
This sounds like a long time but it really goes quite quickly especially if you have other locations in mind etc.

How do we confirm you as our photographer?

After we've had a chat and you've decided you'd like to lock me in I will send you a deposit for 20% of the package you have chosen.
Once that is paid your date is locked in with me! From there we organise a meeting and I take down all of the details that I need to know about your big day as well as signing the contract.

Where have you shot before?

I've had the pleasure of photographing in some beautiful locations before, here is a list of a few locations around the area:

- Wagga Wagga
- Gundagai/Nangus
- West Wyalong
- Rutherglen
- Griffith

Some of the main venues I shoot at which I adore include:

- Magpies Nest, Wagga Wagga
- The Wild Vine, Wagga Wagga
- Millwood Lane, Wagga Wagga
- Nulumeah, Wagga Wagga
- Tuilleries, Rutherglen

I am a huge sucker for farm/country weddings (being from a farm myself) and I have also shot weddings at:

- Reserves next to the river
- Local parks
- Showgrounds/racecourse in marquees
- Gorgeous local church's (St Michaels, Mount Erin etc)

Do you have a second shooter?

I don't have a second shooter within my business that I work with regularly but if you have 200+ guests then I will bring a second shooter with me just to make sure we can capture everything on your day.
I will of course let you know if I'm bringing another employee.

What kind of gear do you use?

I have 2 Canon cameras, a 5D Mk IV and 5D Mk III and my two main lenses that I use on the day which are the Canon 24-70mm f2.8 and the Canon 70-200mm f2.8.
I also use my Canon 50mm f1.8 for some detail shots and my Canon flash when I need it which is a 600 EX.

Can I have the RAW files?

Part of my process when making your beautiful images includes culling the "bad" frames where people have their eyes closed or double or triple photos of the same thing that I've taken just to make sure I've got it the way I want it and then processing the rest of the images in a professional way.

You are hiring me not just for the final product (the finished image) but the process of me getting to that final image. Without that process, there is no final image.

So no, I provide you with high quality JPEG images that I've poured my heart into making look beautiful for you to look at for the rest of your lives.
