Who, Where, What, Why
While a lot of the time I work on my own there are occasions when I have an assistant or second shooter with me. To whether or not I need an assistant depends on the date of your wedding, the location and how many hours of coverage I am required for.
I am currently based in Gippsland but will happily travel free of charge to areas around Melbourne including the Mornington Peninsula and the Yarra Valley. For areas outside of this travel fees may apply.
Coverage includes details, candids, portraits, family snaps + anything else you want documented during the day. I work with 2 cameras equipped with 2 different lenses to ensure I capture every detail the best way I know how. All images are supplied as a digital download as well as on a USB. Albums are available + start at $1200 get in touch to know more.
There are many talented photographers about so if you're feeling overwhelmed at who is right for you we can organise a catch up. At the end of the day you're going to be spending a lot of time with me so its essential Im the right fit.
TIPS + TRICKS
Lighting over location. Photographers love good lighting and you should too, its flattering, easy to work with and will produce a great number of beautiful images. It is for this reason that if I haven't been to your venue prior to your wedding day I will usually make a site visit. This way I know all the top spots for photos as well as finding those sheltered areas incase Plan B needs to come into play. Sunset is also something to consider as this is the PRIME TIME for photos. During the Summer months sunset is usually quite late so a quick 10-20 minutes absence from your reception is worth it. For those wedding in the cooler months make sure your ceremony time is not too late to ensure you have enough daylight to cover the ceremony + photos prior to entering your reception.
Use your time wisely. Getting ready at a location close to your ceremony site is a great way to use your suppliers time efficiently. I realise that this is not always possible but you should consider that if you choose to get ready some distance away from where you are planning to say your 'I do's' you will need to be dressed and ready to go earlier than you would if you were close by. Having those details such as the wedding dress, shoes, jewellery, suits etc out of their bags and boxes will also save us time which means more snaps of those candid moments and less fussing around with all your 'things'.
Delegate. During the day you need to be focused on one thing and one thing only... marrying your favourite person. Everything else can be done by someone else. Family, Friends, Bridal Party they are all there to lend a hand should you need them. The stressed out Brides + Grooms are those that have a to do list a week long with only a few short hours to do it in. Also dont forget there are also those in the industry that can help. If you have envisioned an abundance of floral arrangements its probably not a DIY job go ahead and hire that florist and/or stylist and leave the work to the professionals.
Get in early. When it comes to booking suppliers get in early. Im usually taking bookings about a year in advance and so are a lot of other vendors, so if you know your date and budget get booking!
Camera shy? Book an engagement shoot. Engagement shoots are a great practice run for your big day. They are done at a location of your choice usually at sunset. They are easy, fun and relaxed. To my wonderful couples in Gippsland engagement shoots are complimentary (sorry everyone else).
