A look at
Working with you to turn your plans into reality, we start off by discussing the plans well in advance of the big day. We organise a timeline, style and you have the opportunity to show us some samples of photography you like. This helps in post-event editing and choosing locations.
Our packages are based on 5-hour or 9-hour timelines but can be specifically quoted if you are looking to keep costs down or don’t need a photographer for that long. Packages start at $1200 and you will receive your full collection of professionally edited photos on a keepsake USB. We can arrange printed albums, collages and printed images, if you like. Printed items will be quoted based on individual requirements.
You can expect to receive your full gallery of photos in both print and web sizing within 3 weeks of the event.

Videography does take more planning than photography. We create a basic storyboard so you are aware of what kinds of shots we plan on taking. Of course there is flexibility as planning continues and the day unfolds.
We film for most of the day with a 5-hour package or capture the life beyond the highlights with a 9-hour package. Video is about having a bit of fun. We can think of a few quirky scenes to include that is sure to make you smile. Our packages include both a social media-sized highlights video and a full version. We include licensed music. Packages start at $1900.
The final videos will be available digital download and delivered on a keepsake USB.
A few helpful tips...
Here are a few tips that we have learned along the way that will help you look your best in the photos…
Be prepared for the wind. Style your hair with as few loose pieces as possible. It takes a lot of editing to remove them from your favourite photo!
It is best for gentlemen to wear a tie clip. Again it helps in that wind!
Keep accessories simple – choose wisely. You don’t need to carry heaps… bouquet, umbrella, horseshoe, your baby… you could choose your accessory for key parts of the photoshoot.
Photography location. Choose spots that have few background distractions like graffiti or houses unless you want them in there.
Thin stripe shirts can cause troubles on camera. Avoid large blocks of thin stripes or tiny patterns on men’s shirts. They can create an unwanted chromatic aberration effect in the images, making it look odd and distorted.
- Budget for photography and/or videography. Sure, your friend is good with a camera BUT who is editing them? Most professional photos are edited to remove, straighten, recolour… it’s what makes them awesome! That is what we are doing after the wedding… going through the 1000+ photos to choose the best and ensuring they look the best for your forever memories.
We are available to photograph other events and gatherings. We can also help with designing invitations and websites. Please get in touch to discuss.
