Here are some questions that i am asked a lot.
SO, WHAT EXACTLY DO YOU OFFER
A good time hanging out together while i make amazing memories for you, super relaxed and fun. I'm happy to spend time with you underwater, standing on a mountain, sailing a yacht, hanging out of a chopper or in your backyard next to the BBQ (Yes i have done all of these things for my couples)
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE
Documentary. Before i shot weddings i worked in documentary films and action sports. My favourite thing is being able to tell a story through images and capturing moments that are really fleeting. You need to be able to read people, and you also need to know what is about to happen in the next 10 seconds to capture those moments. Along with technical ability, this is my greatest skill set that i value the most.
DO YOU TRAVEL
Yes. I love it. Who doesn't? I regularly shoot in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Tropical Queensland and Perth. Internationally i have shot in Africa, USA, Bali, Cook Islands, Tahiti, New Zealand, Singapore, Brazil, Fiji.
If you are inquiring for anywhere outside of the Byron to Brisbane area, no worries, i'll come to you. In order to make this happen, I ask that my travel costs be covered. Each situation is unique, and I'm always happy to negotiate.
HOW MANY IMAGES CAN WE EXPECT TO RECEIVE
As a rule of thumb you can expect between 50-70 images per hour of shooting. Things like location, how many guests, length of time available for the photo shoot, how pumping the dance floor is, all become a factor in deciding. The deliverable amounts in each package are pretty spot on for the amount of time spent with you.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO RECEIVE OUR IMAGES
Generally 4-6 weeks depending on my workload at that time of the year. A full online gallery will be made available for you to share with family and friends all over the world.
CAN YOU PHOTOGRAPH AND FILM OUR WEDDING
Absolutely. I have a great filmer named Shiloh that works with me, he's also my nephew and i have trained him well. On the day I will be photographing and Shiloh will be filming. We work great as a team and help each other throughout the day to get the best images possible for you and your fiance.
DO YOU SCOUT FOR LOCATIONS BEFORE THE WEDDING DAY
Yes, each and every shoot gets scouted so i can create original, memorable images for my couples. It is also one of my favourite parts of my job, getting out exploring and finding amazing backdrops for my couples.
DO YOU WANT ACCESS TO MY PINTEREST BOARD I HAVE BEEN WORKING ON TO USE AS A SHOT LIST
No. I shoot like a photo-journalist, capturing the day as it happens. This will only take the spontaneity out the day and wont leave me to be creative and focused solely on the both of you. All i need is a run sheet, a list of the family portraits you would like taken (maximum of 8 groups) and the rest i can take care of while capturing all the tiny details that go with such an event.
ARE YOU MARRIED
I've been happily married to the absolute love of my life Erin for 10 years now. We have a very funny 7 year old girl named after our favourite singer Sadé, and our little 14 month old boy Samson Disco King is still keeping us up at night. Yeah, i'll tell you the story of that middle name when we meet.
YOU SOUND ALL RIGHT, HOW DO WE BOOK YOU
Great. Fill in the form below so i can check the dates availability and get back in contact with you. We really need to meet to make sure we are a right fit for each other and that we are on the same page creatively. If your local lets grab a coffee, if not Skype and Facetime work really well.
Once confirmed, you will receive an invoice for a Au$500 non-refundable retainer along with a booking agreement. The booking agreement is electronic so there's no need to take pictures of your signature with your phone. The invoice will need to be paid and the agreement signed before the date can be secured. You can pay via Stripe, Direct Bank Transfer or when we meet for coffee. The final balance of payment is due anytime before the wedding day.
