What price can you put on twenty three years of experience in wedding photography? That’s a tough one.
That’s twenty three years of capturing peoples’ stories, developing a craft, making connections, experiencing every type and style of wedding, shooting film, learning digital, mastering digital, working in wind, rain, sun, hail and snow (yes I love the snow), working in different countries and states and having copious opportunities to photograph people from all walks of life.
I am then able to bring all of this to you for your individual wedding journey. With all of the wisdom I have gained from these past twenty three years, I am able to guide you, be present with you and have you be reassured that my sole focus will be the two of you and your happiness.
I’ve always found it hard to attribute a number to my services because I really do consider them to be priceless.
For all of these reasons my prices start at $4500.
So what do you actually get for that?
Well, for starters, I make a conscious effort to limit the number of weddings I book so that yours is my sole focus. This means that the day-of I’m fresh, well rested and ready to rock.
There is the initial enquiry/booking consultation where we catch up and you tell me about your plans for your day- we chat about timing- so that we can ensure that everything you want to have captured is captured. We talk about dresses, colours, styles and all of the small and personal touches you plan to incorporate into your wedding. Full transparency, this is the kind of stuff I really love about weddings; the fluffy stuff.
Knowing about these things can also help me help you, because I can then recommend a host of other amazing suppliers to make your day an absolute dream.
But of course that is not all. I am always available for a phone call or an email. I’m always ready to help with advice and recommendations, timing decisions and anything else you would like to pick my brain about. As I have said I have twenty three years of experience, please use it!
A few weeks before your ‘I do’s’ we do a pre-wedding consultation either face-to-face or via zoom: whatever works best! Coffee is my life blood, so anywhere that provides caffeine, either in a drink or through an IV, is a place I’d be keen to catch up in.
This is a more in-depth get to know your day where you can describe in detail your colour schemes, design direction, and your goals for the day. By doing this, I can gain a much clearer image of what your wedding will look like and hence, plan accordingly. That way, on the day you can relax and feel secure in the knowledge that I am thoroughly prepared and will have your back every step of the way.
On the day, you will have up to eight hours of myself and my camera which will be capturing every moment, from getting ready to an epic sunset shot to crazy dance floor antics. Any additional hours can be added at $500ph so please don’t feel like you will have to go without anything!
A few days after the wedding, I will send through a little sneak peek of your images. Yes this is the big one! I know that you will want to be the first ones to post a photo from your wedding day and that you want them to be spectacular!
I will send through about fifteen of my absolute favourite pictures via the gallery link. This means you will be able to spend as long as you’d like admiring them, sharing them by email or social media and downloading them.
Around three to four weeks after the wedding you will receive a full copy of all the high resolution images, corrected and supplied via a personalised online gallery link. You will receive between 700-1000 images. All images will be in colour, but I will provide some black and white alternatives as well. The gallery also enables social media sized files to be downloaded meaning you can share them in all the best places. There is also an online shop for all of your professional printing, framing and canvassing needs. Additionally, the gallery itself can be shared to all of your family and friends!
‘What about an album’, I hear you say!
There is nothing better than having your amazing day be immortalised in one of our gorgeous wedding albums which are handcrafted, Australian made and of stunning quality. This is the story of your wedding, preserved for the future generations of your family to look back on and marvel at.
Personally, I love to design wedding albums. Each individual image is amazing in itself but when it becomes a part of a greater story, it becomes so much more.
Albums start from $1500.
Want to hang out before the big day?
Or what about catching up for an Engagement shoot?
Let’s have some fun! Let’s do something, or go somewhere that means a lot to the both of you, and spend an hour enjoying ourselves and capturing the beautiful connection between you guys. Not only will this give you some epic shots for your insta profiles and a chance to build some excitement for the big day, but, it will also act as a precursor to the actual wedding. You can treat this as a test run: a way to go through the paces and build up some confidence in front of the camera. That way, on the day, you can trust that you’ll be able to be yourself, relax and enjoy the wedding.
Sessions are $500 and include; the shoot for an hour, all images supplied on your online gallery (as well as downloadable in social media size files) and one beautifully printed 8×12 matted Art Print of YOUR choice. You can purchase the high resolution files, prints, frames and canvasses and other products via the online gallery.
Did you say I think I just want to ELOPE?
Please take me with you! Tell me what you’re thinking and let’s make it happen. Whether it’s the summit at Hotham, cliffs overlooking the beach at sunset, or any other place that fills your heart with joy, I am up for the adventure.
Elopements are definitely the new black. Due to the uncertainty of recent times, many couples are just getting it done their way and making the move to a simpler, more personal wedding.
Elopement packages start at $1500 for 3 hours. Hit me up with your ideas.
