Wedding Collections

I understand that when you are in the early stages of planning your wedding that many of the suppliers you are dealing with with are asking you to make many decisions in regards to the various options that they have available. 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 and simply offer the most popular time packages. So rather than have set packages loaded with things that people may not want, I changed to a system where people can build their own packages where they can add items if they 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. You might not know if you want an album or wall art when your wedding is still months or years away. With me you can decide on these options before or after the wedding rather than have to decide on a package in the early stages of planning.

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

Assistant who also takes photos

Hopefully this does not sound confusing.

Some weddings I take an assistant to help me with the day. Her name is Rachael, she is 29 and studied photography at Uni but works in law now. She is not a working professional photographer but she is a very competent photographer. She also makes amazing cakes in her spare time as a hobby! ( the one cake photo on my page is one of her cakes) She loves weddings and I use Rach to help get through a complicated day and keep on eye on the details. I typically get her to take photos of the guests during cocktail hour when we are out getting creative photos, to photograph different angles at the ceremony and so on.


Second Professional 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 not required the majority of time in my opinion. This is a good option for people wanting maximum photography diversity.

Second Photographer from $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 inkjet photo printers using genuine ink. The paper I select is an artistic decision based on the the type of paper that best suits the image. I take an immense amount of pride in printing the images myself in my studio and producing prints that are correct and of the highest standard. They are printed in very convenient standard paper sizes to make framing a simple task. You can either get them professionally framed or for example if you are giving out a quantity as gifts you can simply put them in generic off the shelf frames.

Fine Art Canvas approx 1 meter wide$300.00
Fine Art A2 Print$100.00
Fine Art A3 Print$50.00
Fine Art A4 Print$30.00

A small version of you 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.

Custom gallery grade framing is available. Price is dependent on size and frame type.

Custom Printing

If you want a really large framed photograph or a 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.

Do I need to pay a deposit?

Yes, a deposit is required to secure the date.

What does "Next Day Images" mean?

This means that I come home on the night of the wedding and I get all the images from my cameras 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. 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. Also it is bigger and the display box that comes with the Deluxe album is of a higher quality than the Premium Album.

Tell me more about your Second Professional Photographer.

The second photographers I use are talented photographers. There are many 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 and just as importantly are also 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 and also ensure that the files are not lost or compromised.

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.
