Please check out the video below to see how I work, vendor recommendations, timeline recommendations and more helpful information...
Just to summarise all the information in the video. But please watch the video to hear some more additional information.
What you actually get and how you receive your images.
You will receive roughly between 500-1000 images (colour corrected edited) via a high resolution online gallery.
Images vary obviously between how the day goes, how many hours coverage, wedding vs elopement etc.
Here are some examples below of how you will receive your images...
Wanna lock me in for your day?!
As I mentioned in the video, I want to meet you guys face to face or via FaceTime/Skype haha.
If we can't lock a meeting in super soon and you guys can't wait, I am more than happy to lock you in and postpone the catch up.
Basically the process is:
- 25% deposit of the final amount due within a week of invoice sent (package + travel costs if applicable)
- 75% within the 2 weeks prior to the big day!
Travel expenses does vary depending on the exact location and OVERSEAS inquiries are flexible!
Timeline examples for early and late sunsets.
With early sunsets it makes it a bit difficult in you have to try and fit a lot in the day before it get's dark quickly.
Early sunset timetable - 5.30pm
Ceremony - 3pm - 3.30pm
Family shots and cocktail time - 3.30pm - 4.30pm
Bridal party shots - 4.30pm - 4.45pm
Adventure time portrait shots - 4.45pm - 5.30pm
Reception formalities begin - 5.45pm
Other hints/tips: When starting reception, my recommendation is get speeches done as quickly as possible. The quicker you can get all the formalities out of the way, the more time you get to party!
Late sunsets can be dangerous because I have found couples leave all the formalities till dark then everyone is too drunk to cooperate which can unnecessarily extend all the formalities.
Late sunset timetable - 7.30pm
Ceremony - 4pm - 4.30pm
Family shots and cocktail time - 4.45pm - 5.45pm
Bridal party shots - 5.45pm - 6pm
Head to reception and sneak in an entree and as many speeches as you can - 6pm - 645pm
Adventure time portrait shots - 6.45pm - 7.30pm
Reception formalities begin - 5.45pm
Other hints/tips: The danger with late sunset weddings is not making use of the down time during the daylight hours. People get drunk quick and the quicker you get everything done the more party time you get during the night time hours.
I photograph on both film & digital cameras…
When I get asked to explain to people “why film?”. My answer is comparable to the vinyl revolution of music… Technically the music quality isn’t as clear and clean, but there is something about the rawness and authenticity of the sound of the crackle. THAT IS FILM!
Technically not as clean and “perfect”, but it is RAW and REAL! Something about the images that makes me shiver with excitement!
Both mediums of digital and film are obviously amazing for different things.
My growing passion for film has influenced me as an artist to grow and challenge myself every time I pick up a camera!
Prices vary depending on the package obviously. Here is the menu…
Digital & film.
9hrs + Engagement shoot - $5,100
8hrs - $4,500
6hrs - $4,200
Elopement full day - $3,800
Elopement 3hrs - $2,500
9hrs + Engagement Shoot - $5,600
8hrs - $5,000
6hrs - $4,700
Elopement full day - $4,300
Elopement 3hrs - $3,000
In terms of when I should start and finish photographing your day?
This will help you guys a bit more with thinking about which package you should go through with.
- 3 hours prior to ceremony is heaps of time for getting ready shots. 2 hours is plenty also if you guys are getting ready at the same property.
- I should finish roughly 30-45 minutes (maximum 1hr) after your first dance. Reason being within 30minutes of an epic dancefloor I get 400 dance shots!!! People get interesting, photos get repetitive and I have had my gear damaged by drunk people before.
My advice is if you are tossing up between two different packages, go with the shorter amount of coverage and save some money. If on the day you want me to stay longer, I am more than happy too then invoice the extra time stayed later on. ($300 per hour extra)
You guys are keen on an engagement shoot!?
Let me just say... Smart decision guys! As I mentioned in the video it is the best thing you can do to get epic shots for your day!
Practise for your wedding/elopement.
I usually charge $1000 per engagement shoot, but if you guys lock in a wedding/elopement with me then I offer you the engagement shoot for a huge discount!!!
$300 for the engagement shoot.
Let's go camping, hiking or just something epic. As long as there are a few beers at the finish I am happy!
Prints & Albums
Overtime I have become more and more passionate about seeing my photos in print or albums.
Photos on the computer or your phone is just fancy data, let’s turn that data into something tangible and REAL!
Something that will last generations and be passed down to your children and their children for decades to come!
I get all my prints and albums done through Atkins Photo Lab who are based in Adelaide. They are the oldest and best photo lab in Australia. The quality of their products destroy everyone else!
All sound good?!
