Wedding Collections


I understand that when you are in the early stages of planning your wedding that every wedding vendor is encouraging you to pick as many options as possible. I know from first-hand experience that this is daunting and overwhelming.

With this in mind, at the beginning of 2019 I decided to simplify my pricing to make it easier to make a decision and get on with planning your wedding. Now I just offer the most requested time packages. So rather than have set packages loaded with things that people may or may not want, I changed to a more simple pricing system. Basically you can just choose what you want.

If you know that you want me to photograph your wedding all you need to do is book me for an amount of time. If your plans change and you want move up to more time we can simply change it to a different collection. You might not know if you want an album or wall art when your wedding is still months away. With me you can decide if you want these options at any stage of the process.

Options and Products

My Albums are all custom designed by me and handmade in Italy. I use a company called Graphi Studios who have been around since 1982 . Graphi Studios are considered by many in the industry to simply make the best albums in the world. They really are beautiful.

Prices represents a 30 page album.


Graphi 12x12 or 16x12Deluxe Album$1400.00
Graphi 8x8 or 12x8Deluxe Album$1000.00
Graphi 12x8Premium Album$700.00




If you want to hear me ramble on about Wedding Albums I made an embarrassing first time video you can do so HERE .


Engagement Shoot

When booking me for a wedding I offer a specially priced engagement shoot as an option. This is generally for 60 to 90 minutes and includes the digital files. You can use the files for invitations, a display on the wedding day, social media announcements or just the pleasure of having some beautiful photos

Engagement shoot $250.00


Second Photographer

A single photographer cannot be everywhere at once. A second photographer can photograph different angles of the ceremony, capture more photos of guests when I am with you and generally add more diversity to the day’s coverage. I would typically utilise a second photographer from the Ceremony to the Reception for 4 hours. Having a second photographer for the entire day is generally a waste the majority of time in my opinion. This is a good option for people wanting maximum photography coverage.


Second Photographer $550.00


Printing and Canvas’s

The prints and canvas's I create are printed on the absolute best archival fine art paper and printed on the best available ink jet photo printers using genuine ink. The paper I select is an artistic decision based on the type of paper that best suits the image. I take an immense amount of pride in hand printing the images myself in my studio and producing prints that are correct and of the highest quality.


Price depending on size and framing. As a guide $300.00 to $950.00


Parent Albums

A small version of your wedding album can be purchased for parents or loved ones. This is an exact copy of the wedding album you will receive but in a smaller format.

Parent Album x2: $265.00 (cannot be ordered singularly, only available as a pair) .


Custom Printing

If you want a super large framed photograph, acrylic or metal print let me know and I can give you a quote. There are just too many variables to list here.


Pricing FAQ's



What about if I do not know how much time I will need?

Not a problem. Just book me at my base collection. Once we get to a few months out from your wedding and your plans are more solid, we can look at if you want more time.



What does "Next Day Images" mean?

This means that I come home on the night of the wedding and get all the images from my cameras and get them imported into my computer and backed up. I then go through them a pick out 20-30 images from the day, edit them and either email them to you or post them online within 24 hours for you and your family and friends to enjoy. I am a strong believer in delivering photos in a timely manner. It probably stems from my sports photography background where speed was everything. I feel that next day images is a good service to offer that everyone appreciates and sets me apart a bit from other photographers.


What's the difference between the Deluxe Albums and the Premium Albums?

Just to be clear they are both *excellent* albums. The main differences are that the Deluxe album uses genuine Italian leather and linen where the Premium Album uses a leatherette or linen. Also, there are more options for colours and more interesting paper choices with the Deluxe album. It is bigger and the display box that comes with the Deluxe album is of a higher quality than the Premium Album. If you want to hear me ramble on about Wedding Albums I made an embarrassing first time video you can do that HERE


Tell me more about your second shooter/s?

The second photographers I use are talented local photographers. There are many excellent professional photographers who simply do not want to be a primary wedding photographers as they do not want the responsibility. I look for people who are good photographers but more importantly are good with people. I supply my second shooters with the camera and memory cards to use and take responsibility for the whole process. This is important as I can assure the same level of file quality as the other photos of the day.


What is the Rainy Day Guarantee?

If you have your heart set on getting that shot on the hill or on the beach but it is bucketing down rain and it makes it impossible to do so without getting covered in mud or drenched in rain I will schedule a re-shoot. So if you want to get dressed up again and do it on an available Sunday or weekday I will do it at no extra fee.



OK OK I am sold.... Do I need to pay a deposit?


Yes. A deposit is required to reserve the date. Please be aware that in fairness to everyone I will not hold a date until a deposit is paid.
