Yes please ! I always meet with my couple so we can get to know each other and see if we are a good match. I work from my home office in Melbourne inner suburbs so I can meet you anywhere for a coffee or an Espresso martini ; )
If you are not Melbourne based, we can definitely chat on Skype and meeting later closer to the date.
A $1000 non-refundable deposit will secure your wedding date. I can't hold a date for you, but I can let you know if someone else enquires about the same date. First in, best dressed !
Of course! I have traveled half the world to live with my lover after all. My passport is up to date and and my suitcase is ready to go! For interstate weddings, a small travel fee for flights and accommodation applies. If your wedding takes place outside of Melbourne metro, I charge a travel fee of $70/per hour. Please contact me for more information.
I do have a couple of photographer friends who shoot for me on a regular basis. However, most of the time, I'm shooting on my own. If you are having a big wedding with more than a 120 guests then I'd highly recommend you get a second shooter to ensure everything is covered. Please note that a second shooter is included if you decide to go with my Diamond package.
Yes, absolutely. I have a $10 000 000 public liability insurance.
A beautiful collection of around 500 to a 1000 edited photographs both in colors and black&white. All photos are carefully edited by me with my specific style and a link to download high and online resolution for your convenience.
The day after slideshow as a taster of your wedding day which is an online gallery of 30 sneak peeks sent the day after your special day. One year access to an online gallery which you can share with family and friends 6 to 8 weeks after your wedding.
I do not use watermark or logo whatsoever and you have unlimited access to all your photos so you can print them on a billboard if it tickles your fancy!
Unfortunaly, I don't sorry ! As a professional, I spend a lot of time editing and chosing the best photos to give you. I do this not only for you to have the best possible images, but also because my photos are the expression of who I am as an artist and individual. It's my duty to choose that special one out of the 5 shots I took of you in the same pose, that has the best composition, facial expression, light, clarity and so on !
I'm train to know that you don't want the one with your eyes closed or the one that is out of focus. That happens sometimes, I'm not a robot : )
I want to give you the very best of my work. I choose to not give you every single photos taken on the day for a reason ; they are simply not as good.
To finish, I shoot in RAW format, which the purest form of shooting and it captures a lot of information resulting in a very large file size that requires special program that most people don't have at home. If you are hiring me as your wedding photographer, it means you are totally trusting my skills and knowledge as a pro to deliver the most beautiful photos.
If you have booked me for a certain amount of time but want all the d-floor action and party snaps, you can have me staying longer! Additional hours are charged at $300/hour.
Yes please! I'm running all day on my feet and one definitely needs some fuel for the artistic mind and the body. For your information, I'm vegetarian. If you have me for less than 5 hours (small wedding, elopement) then I can totally survive on my nut bars and bananas ; )
I have the latest Canon equipment and I'm shooting with prime (fixed) lenses. They allow me to photograph in my own specific style. I'm a natural light lover and shooter so don't expect me to rock up with studio lights, umbrellas, crazy equipment and two assistants.
I have a very minimalistic approach so I can stay discreet and capture your day as a story. Equipment helps to get beautiful photos but the most important thing is the soul behind the lens.
