How long have you been a photographer?
I’ve been playing with cameras since I was young. They have become second nature to me. My little babe of a business began in 2016 and it’s been the most beautiful risk I ever did take.
Where are you based? Do you travel for weddings?
I am based in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. My wedding rates include travel within 50km of Brisbane (and fixed travel fees for interstate and destination weddings. So no matter where in the world you want to say your I do’s, I’ll be there to capture it.
How does covering travel expenses work?
Some photographers do set travel fees, I don’t. I just have you pay for the bare minimum (flight, transportation, stay) and I cover the rest.
For booking, I book flights and transport on my own (you can book my stay if you’d like, but I am firm on booking my own flights + transportation). I make sure to get your confirmation on all logistics + price before booking anything to ensure there are no surprise costs on your end! Once booked, the payment for this is due within one week of receiving your invoice.
Do you include second shooters in your packages?
Typically yes! I have my husband come second shoot with me on some weddings. His humour and and personality usually have my bride and groom in tears! He knows how I like to work and it’s the most wonderful feeling having him by my side. We both know how a wedding day will run and if there are nerves, he always seems to have a flask of scotch hiding on him somewhere…
Do you help in the planning process?
Absolutely! I’ve shot a looot of weddings (and am married myself!) so I know the industry pretty damn well! Let me know what you need help with, if you need recommendations, and if there’s anything I can do to make the process easier for you.
I also include a timeline for my couples in all my packages, hour by hour, so I can do all the thinking for you. I am not only capturing your moments, I’m keeping track of the time, making sure everything in the background runs the way you want it to!
What is your turnaround time?
Taking on a limited amount of weddings every year, I have a faster turnaround time than most photographers! The turnaround depends on how much I shoot, how busy I am and my travel schedule, Typically, for sessions it takes 3 weeks or less and weddings take 5 weeks or less. I try to get them back to you as soon as possible while making sure I give time to each and every image.
How many images do you include?
Each one of my packages varies in how many images are delivered, but I promise I’ll always include plenty of images of everything I capture. I don’t like to give a cutoff number because I don’t believe in withholding any images from you to get you to pay more like some photographers do. These are your memories, I promise to capture them fully and give you more than enough imagery to remember this time in your lives.
Can you photoshop us?
I believe in promoting self love and body positivity, so I don’t alter the way you look other than skin blemishes or anything temporary that would not normally be there (bruise, blemishes etc unless you’d like me to keep them in the photos). If you’re especially self conscious about something, please let me know as I’ll be sure to be extra aware of that while I’m posing you. Also if you want me to photoshop in lightsabers or a cat, I can definitely do that.
What do we wear for photos?
I’ve got a what to wear guide that I send over to all my couple before our shoot. Don’t worry I’ve got you guys!
Do you photograph families?
Yes and yes. I adore children. My husband and I are both children at heart. We will get along just fine ha!
