Wedding Photography Services
If you just landed here, it’s probably because:
- I have done my homework and set up my website correctly,
- I persevered and am perfecting to what I love doing and do well (I know that one can’t still keep a full time job and shoot 3-4 weddings a year on the side),
- My former clients left lots of very positive feedback.
- All of the above.
In all the seriousness, congratulations! You are getting married! How exciting! If you are checking wedding photographers in the area, chances are that you have already ticked off the following items on your ever expanding wedding checklist:
- One wedding couple
- One perfect wedding venue and catering on a date you want
- One ever-changing list of guests that will attend
- One (dare to say) very vague estimate of how much you are willing to spend and how to actually pay for it all these days
- One marriage celebrant (if you are really onto it!)
So, before you hire a suit, buy a wedding dress and rings, organise a make-up artist and hairdresser and even think about your wedding cake and music, you should probably book your photographer!
I love everything about weddings – the raw emotions, the nervousness, the true happiness! I cater for money savvy brides (and grooms) who insist on a great selection of high quality, thoughtful and clever images which will document their special day. My images are authentic. My style is documentary. Not overbrushed, yet hand edited. I am assuming at this point that they have seen my portfolio and you like my photography style but to actually book my services, I believe, you need to trust that I am the expert you are looking for!
When wedding couples (and it is equally brides and grooms in 2024) first contact me, they usually ask if I am available on a certain date and how much I charge for wedding photography. I value my time and I value yours so you don't have to email me for packages. I display my “no nonsense” price list without hesitation because I know what I am able to offer and that I have worked hard to get where I am now. I am super organised, have got a powerful portfolio of images backing me up and I know I have been perfecting my craft...my whole life!
Lately, I have heard couples saying that the wedding celebrant suggested a different photographer they cooperate with but there shouldn’t be any obligations to book any supplier you don’t want yourselves! Same goes for make-up artists and hairdressers. The choice of your suppliers is entirely up to you, always! It’s your wedding so don't let anyone tell you otherwise!
I like to share my experiences from other weddings I photographed, even give you some input…you know how many times a couple looked at each other with “I didn’t even think of that!”? I am confident that once we connect and I will get to know you a bit during our initial phone conversation and meeting in person (because I like to sit down with you, ideally at the ceremony or reception venue, and listen to what you have in mind in those first stages of wedding planning), you will be assured that I am your ally. A friend who tells the bride to re-apply a lippie or who will adjust your hair out of your face so we can get the best portrait of you.
It can be difficult for some to relax in front of the camera, I absolutely get it hence all my energy goes into you having the best time. People say I am a genuine, funny and what-you-see-is-what-you-get kind of person. It helps me to get the best of you in order to get natural looking images. So be ready for some high fiving along the way and me telling you that you gave me goosebumps (love goosebumps because I know that we are nailing it). If I see that you have had enough of the formal couple’s portraits, we will just wrap it up. But I will also tell you that I need that one particular shot I have in mind for you. If you trust me, I can promise you will look at your photos and say “Yes, this is how I remember it!”
The typical amount of photos you will receive from me (via easy to navigate online photo gallery you can share and download) very much depends on the individual wedding (duration, locations, number of guests, etc). I carefully cull down all the photos from the day so your gallery flows well and you end up with the maximum amount of images which tells the story that evoke the feelings you remember you had yet you don't end up overwhelmed with too many photos.
I don’t include any prints or artwork into my packages as every single one of you has got different ideas on how to keep and present your wedding photos. I am happy to organise small and large prints on paper, photobooks or large artwork on media like canvas, acrylic or aluminium for you at competitive prices with a professional photo lab at extra charge.
The signing of standard Wedding Photography Agreement and payment of non-refundable booking fee is required in order to book the date.
