Long after the tears have dried, the cake all eaten, the presents opened (and returned), only one thing will remain…. your images. They are the only part of your day that will gain in value over time.
WHY DO I CALL IT AN INVESTMENT?
|Additional Time||$300 p/hr|
|Second Photographer||$100 p/hr|
I’m 100% transparent about my prices, suppliers and the products you order. These premium prints and albums will fill your home and hearts for generations, you deserve to know their provenance and why I order them. I also repay the trust you give me when you invite me to capture your once in a lifetime day, by offering my prints at cost price. No markup.
It’s an honour having my prints on your wall. My services as your photographer include wanting the best for you and shouldn’t include charging you to take the photos, then charging again to enjoy them. Yet strangely, I’m likely the only photographer in the country who feels this way.

"It always pays to dwell slowly on the beautiful things in life - and the more beautiful the more slowly"
The majority of the day I will be in photo ninja mode. The exception will be some portraits after you've gotten ready, the family photos and location shots when I may make some suggestions for composition, but ultimately, still capturing you guys being your awesome, dorky, love-filled selves.
My A's to your Q's
Argh! I hate posing. I just want natural shots. Is that ok?
Not a problem. My ninja skills are top notch and I am very effective at capturing those spontaneous funny/sentimental/romantic moments. If you like, during the location shoot, I can offer some direction, but they will be general ideas and I always endeavour to keep it fun and light hearted.
What happens if you can’t make it on the day?
In the very unlikely event that I can’t make it to the wedding (it has never happened yet, but naturally, anything is possible), I will ask in my facebook group of awesome Melbourne wedding photographers who is available, I will then pass on their portfolios to you for selection. They typically reply within 20mins.
Is it just you or will there be a second photographer?
I shoot solo in the vast majority of weddings for several reasons, most notably to keep the cost down for you, to be more discrete, and because in at least six hours of photography you will already get far more photos from me than you'll ever know what to do with. However, if you would like to have a second photographer on the day, this can be arranged for an additional $100p/hr.
If we decide on the day that we’d like you to stay longer, will that be possible?
Of course! I will never have anywhere else to be that night. My rate for additional time is $250p/hr.
What is the turnaround time for the photos?
I know how excited you will be to get the photos back of your wedding day, that’s why I don’t wait for months to return the images. I aim to get the digital photos back to you within three weeks of the wedding day, a timeline I am proud to offer as it is a rarity in the industry.
What do I need to provide you with?
I will require a running sheet of the day with the start times, addresses of all locations and important contact numbers. I will also need you to consider in advance which group photos you would like after the ceremony. It will help if you designate a friend or family member (preferably one who is very comfortable being bossy!) who can wrangle the right people together for each photo. These have a tendency to run overtime so the more preparation the better.
Can you still take photos if it’s raining?
Regardless or the season, there is always going to be a distinct chance of rain, such are the joys of living in the Yarra Valley! Fortunately, I have a very technical piece of equipment for such an occasion, an umbrella! I suggest you bring one too. We can capture some truly unique and shots in terrible weather so even when it’s bad, it’s good.
Sounds great! We are totally vibing. How do I lock you in?
Once you are comfortable with me as your wedding photographer and would like to lock in the date, I will require a 20% deposit with the remainder to be paid on or before the day of the wedding. We can then look forward to spending one of the best days of your lives together and creating breathtaking moments that will be captured and enjoyed forever.
