Here are a few common questions we get asked. If you don't find the answers you're looking for, feel free to ask your own question via the form at the bottom of this page.
WHERE ARE YOU BASED?
I live in Port Macquarie on the coast of NSW.
If you've never been, I highly recommend a visit - it's pure paradise, and I can't believe I live here!
DO YOU TRAVEL?
I love shooting in new places all over the country, and have shot weddings in Perth, Sydney, Melbourne, and beyond. I'm happy to travel anywhere you want me.
Ps: Anyone getting married overseas (especially, but not limited to, Iceland), hit me up!
HOW MANY PHOTOS DO I GET?
This varies shoot to shoot.
I don't limit the amount of images a client receives; all images that I believe are worthy are handed over. This means that weddings clients can receive upwards of 600 photos!
WHAT EQUIPMENT DO YOU USE?
I use two Canon 5D Mark III's, and have a few specialty lenses to go with them. I also like to bring along a few film and polaroid cameras. For video work I also use my nifty Glidecam.
You'll occasionally see me whip out some fun items like mirror, glass prisms, sparklers, and even smoke grenades! These items aren't essential for an awesome result, but they definitely make it fun and unique.
DO YOU EDIT YOUR OWN PHOTOS?
Yes! All photos and videos are edited by yours truly.
HOW LONG UNTIL I RECEIVE MY IMAGES?
This depends on the session you booked and whether it's peak wedding season or not.
Typically, a wedding shoot is completed in 6-8 weeks, and smaller shoots take 2-4 weeks.
But with all shoots, I always like to send through a cheeky handful of images within a1-3 days of the shoot - so you have something to share and enjoy while I work on the rest of the images.
DO YOU DO PHOTO ALBUMS?
Yes! Photo albums are an option for all my clients if they’re interested. I also have sample wedding albums that I’m happy for couples to view before committing to ordering one of their own.
Fine art photo books can be added to your booking (or ordered at a later time) for an additional cost. For more information, click HERE.
WHO OWNS THE COPYRIGHT OF THE PHOTOS?
All images are copyright of me, however clients have "home use" license to print as many image as they want, and share on social media.
DO YOU HAVE A SECOND-SHOOTER?
Sometimes on larger shoots, like weddings, you'll see a tall bearded fellow taking photos too - that's my husband Michael! He occasionally assists me, and helps capture candid moments throughout the day.
On days where he can't be available, I cope very well on my own (but having his company and assistance is always a pleasure!).
REGARDING VIDEO, HOW LONG WILL THE FINAL WEDDING FILM BE?
Short and sweet; typically running for 2-4 minutes (the length of a song).
WHERE DO YOU GET YOUR MUSIC FOR WEDDING VIDEOS?
All music is legally sourced through music licensing platforms.
I legally cannot use mainstream music with my films (sorry, no Ed Sheeran), but that's okay! There is a vast array of awesome music that can be found through the sources I use. Plus, it means your film is going to be more unique and authentic!
DO WE GET TO CHOOSE THE MUSIC?
Music plays a huge role in our films - in fact, we can't even begin creating your film until we know what music we'll be using! (It's all about the vision!)
We spend hours and hours searching for the right song/s that inspire us to create a film that's unique for you - so giving someone else the power to choose makes it tricky for us.
If you have seen our work and completely love it, then we ask that you just relax, enjoy your wedding day, and leave the rest to us!
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO CREATE OUR WEDDING FILM?
Depending on the peak and off-peak times of the year for weddings, films usually take 8-12 weeks. We keep our clients updated on the progress of their film, so any delays are communicated with our couples!
