Planning a wedding can be overwhelming ….
We understand that sometimes organising a wedding can feel like an overwhelming, slightly complicated, multifaceted to-do list. And unless you have a career in production, logistics or events, it will probably be the most significant organisational feat you personally accomplish. Weddings are our passion and through documenting many over the past 5 years, we have learned a thing or two about organising them! We want you to feel informed and supported by us through every step of your wedding journey and we (as well as our team) are available to you anytime via email or phone.
How far in advance should we consider booking you?
As soon as you have your date locked in! We receive enquiries many months and often years in advance, so the sooner you contact us the greater your chances that we will be available for your date! However if we’re already booked, don’t be disheartened – as the demand for us to document your day increases, so too does our team – so it is always worth sending through an enquiry. Also, if you have several dates that you’re considering, please send them through and we can let you know who is available for those dates!
What is a lighting & timing consultation?
This is where we build your timeline for the day, to give suggestions of when best to schedule key moments, taking into account the time of year, the season and the location. Ideally we love to harness the best available light for your portraits, working in with your wedding day sequence and (where relevant) that beautiful window before sunset.
What is your approach on the day?
We are very relaxed photographers and we strive to ensure that you have a memorable day celebrating with your loved ones. Ultimately we’d like you to forget that we are even there. For the vast majority of your day we will capture images in a completely candid and natural manner. During your portrait time we will direct you towards the best light (but without asking you to pose!) allowing your day to unfold naturally.
We’re not comfortable in front of the camera..
You’re not alone – this is a comment that we hear a lot and we completely understand! We work hard to be as unobtrusive as possible so that you are not even aware of us and our cameras. This style of shooting creates a relaxed and natural day (for you) and a more authentic, beautifully photographic result. During the portrait time your job is simply to concentrate on how much you love one another, and we will document the rest! We may give you some simple instructions just to get you started, but then we will step back and let the magic unfold before our lens.
You were unavailable to photograph our wedding on the day, but can we book you for a portrait session after our wedding (on another day)?
Of course, and we often do portrait sessions. If you are interested in booking one simply contact us and we will send you through some information.
What is a private online gallery?
This is the first stage of image delivery. We upload all of the web quality (low resolution) images to your own private gallery. This gallery will contain all of the edited images from the day and are a beautiful and convenient way to share your photos with your family and loved ones. You also have the ability to download and share the images onto you social media accounts too. Each gallery is private as it is password protected so it can only be viewed by people who you choose to share the password with, so your images are very safe and secure.
How do you deliver our images?
We will initially send you a link to your online gallery which contains your low resolution images. Your high resolution images, which are perfect for printing, will be posted to you on a USB several weeks after you receive your online gallery.
I would like to add an album to our wedding gift registry, can we do this?
Absolutely, this is a very popular idea for our couples! Just contact us and we will organise this for you.
Do you offer gift certificates?
We most certainly do and they are a beautiful and thoughtful wedding gift! Contact us and we will be able to organise one for you.
Where are your lookbooks / albums made?
Our exquisite albums are each hand made in Italy, by a family owned workshop of artisans.
How do I secure my date?
When you confirm that you would like to book us as your wedding photographer, we will send you some paperwork which includes an online contract as well as the 25% booking fee. Your date will be secure with us once we have received both the digitally signed contract and the booking fee.
Will you tentatively hold a date for us?
Due to the very high number of enquiries we receive it is just not possible (or fair) to place tentative holds on dates.
Is the booking fee refundable or transferable?
If you have to cancel your wedding, your booking fee is not refundable or transferable.
How do you describe your style?
Our style is documentary photography through a romantic lens. We capture your day through authentic and honest moments with an expressive, editorial eye, distilling your unique story into timeless photographs. We aim to capture not only the key moments, but the emotion and energy that was present – so that our imagery may transport you, long after the day.
How long until we receive our wedding photographs?
Image selection and editing is an integral part of our process, just as involved and meticulous as documenting the day itself. As such, we allow 6 weeks after your wedding to complete this step.
Will we receive a preview after the wedding?
We do not want to detract from the delicious anticipation of receiving your story in full. Your wedding photography will be revealed to you, in full, beautifully edited and complete as a narrative. We do not send previews!
Do you retouch our photographs?
While we edit every photo, and we can remove minor blemishes, we do not believe in drastically altering any images (or people within images). We do not ‘retouch’ our photographs.
Do you offer videography?
We are a wedding photography studio, so we only offer wedding photography.
When is the final payment due?
Final payment is due 30 days prior to your wedding.
Do you take formal family photos?
We certainly do! This typically happens after the ceremony (following all of the congratulations) and we do ask that you provide us with a list of family photos that you would like.
Do you travel interstate or internationally?
We love travelling and regularly travel interstate and internationally to capture weddings.
Will my wedding photographs be watermarked?
Your gorgeous images will not have a watermark on them.
Are your photographs digital or film?
We are digital photographers.
