So, how would you describe your style?
Honest, still, romantic and intimate. I love the quiet moments just as much as the craziness of it all and go about it with a very candid, photojournalistic approach with a few creative portraits thrown in for good measure.
Can we meet up in person before booking in?
Absolutely. I’m a big fan of catching up with all of my couples and making sure we are all on the same page before making it official. I’m based in Prahran and and am always up for a coffee or cheeky wine (Or gin. Or champers.)
Do you travel for weddings?
For sure. I’m a big fan of travelling around, so whether your wedding is in rural Victoria, interstate or overseas, let me know. I’m always keen to hop in the car/a plane/moped/tuk tuk/ride a camel into the desert to get to a new amazing place. I’ve been lucky enough to shoot weddings in Greece, Italy, Egypt, Sri Lanka, India, New Zealand, Bali, Fiji, Thailand and across Australia and I’m always up for seeing more of this amazing planet. So after my long winded answer. Yes, yes I do.
What’s included in your package?
10 hours of photographic coverage with moi and a second shooter helping out for a few hours on the day. A collection of around 800 beautifully edited images provided in both screen (low) and print (high) resolution on a USB. A slideshow of around 150 images set to music is provided both online and on your USB as well as online access to a gallery of all your images for up to one year to share and download.
How much is your package?
My pricing for 10 hours of wedding photography with a second shooter plus all the things I mentioned above for $5,500.
Why do you only offer the one package?
After 7 years of shooting, I can honestly say that for me, this is the best way to shoot a wedding. I’m all about telling the story of your day, which extends way outside the formalities of cake cutting and the ceremony. I want to be there from the anxiousness of the mornings activities through to everyone cutting shapes on the dance floor.
Can we see one of your slideshows?
You sure can! Here is James + Elyce’s slideshow from their Barossa Valley wedding which can also be viewed here.
Do you offer albums?
Of course! Check out the link here for more info and photos of some previous albums.
Do you provide a second shooter?
I do. For Melbourne weddings a secondary photographer joins me for a few hours during the ceremony + portrait time when everything gets real cray cray. For destination weddings, where possible, I love to bring along my partner, Eric Ronald to shoot with me. We have already photographed weddings together in Egypt, Italy, India, Sri Lanka, Thailand and New Zealand and are soon shooting together in Italy, Bali + Jordan and all over Australia.
Do you have specific vendors that you like working with?
I’ve been lucky to have worked with some of the best in the bizz, especially when it comes to videographers who really compliment my style and we all get along grandly. Check out the Friends Of Mine page for more info.
What if we don’t like being in front of the camera?
That’s ok, it’s rare these days to find people who do. My style of photography lends itself to more photojournalism, so most of the time I just want you to pretend I’m not there. Even during portrait time, I just hunting for good light to put you in, and then I’ll leave you two to chat amongst yourselves.
Do we need to feed you at our wedding?
Yes please. I get mighty hungry/hangry after 10 hours of shooting.
Can you pencil in dates for us?
Unfortunately no dates can be held until a non refundable booking fee is received.
Finally, what are your thoughts on a group photo?
Honestly, I’m not crash hot on the idea. It’s a whole lotta drama for not a lot of payoff. I find trying to organise a group photo disrupts the flow of the day (especially if it’s just after your ceremony when all you want to do is celebrate!), it eats up precious portrait time and can turn one of two of the guests against me. I much prefer taking some lovely family portraits for you instead and avoiding the gigantic group photos.
