Wedding Prices

The couples I love to photograph:

I photograph couples who are passionate about beautiful images and value a professional photographer to capture gorgeous images of their wedding day.

I love couples who anticipate the moment of seeing their photos and who take pleasure reliving all the behind the scenes moments, every detail and emotion from their special day, to always treasure.

This is what energises me as a wedding photographer and why I believe I am the right choice for people who are wanting to experience a fun, relaxed day with a photographer who’s passion and attention to detail combined with the ability to capture your story perfectly is what makes your  day memorable and enjoyable.

It’s all about the couples experience on the day and afterwards as well.

The maximum amount of weddings I only want to shoot each year is 20 couples, as I have a family of my own and value my time with them.

I do travel interstate and open to weddings overseas as well.

What to expect before the day:

There is no pressure to go with me as I understand the importance of choosing a photographer that you trust and feel comfortable with, because that will make all the difference on the day!

That is why I like to make an appointment with couples first at my studio first, so that we get to know each other better and we both have a clear understanding of the day, timings and expectations. So that when their special day arrives, we both fell at ease which makes sense to get those beautiful, natural and fun wedding photographs you are just now hoping and dreaming for.

Couples also get the chance to view more of my work, samples and albums. Whilst I love and highly recommend getting a beautiful wedding album because it highlights the story of you wedding day perfectly to look back upon time after time and share with your family, there is absolutely no pressure at all to purchase an album. If you do wish to have an album, I work with you on your selections so that the story of day flows perfectly together.  On the final wedding album planning stage, you will have final say.
We work closely with you to customise the look and feel of the images we create for you and find out how we can best look after you.
Prices do start at $2,990 for a 6 hour wedding and included fully edited final images given as beautiful printed DVD and in a case, both high res and low res.
Engagements shoots start at $600 and include the digital files and a selection of prints

What to expect on the day:

As we have gotten to know each other before you wedding, you can expect to feel a lot more relaxed and comfortable on the day.
I have a very easy going nature, but work very hard on the day capturing every moment.
I’ll give you direction on the day too as well as capture candid and natural shots and best of all we will have fun!

What you can expect after your wedding:

You will receive a teaser with some of the best shots from the day within 2 weeks after your wedding and you will receive your final images after 6 weeksk of your wedding or less. All depending on the time of year.
Expect alot of photos to be given! At least 1200 images for a full days shoot, at minimum because nothing gets left out with 2 photographers and 4 cameras on the day.
I deliver full resolution images in colour and black and white, fully edited and free from watermarks to every client.
I have popular Traditional and Fine Art Albums and are priced from $1200.

Studio Appointments:

Viewing by appointment only, at my Acacia Gardens studio.
Appointment times are normally Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday between 5:30pm – 7:00pm.
Some weekend appointments may be available when not shooting portraits or weddings.
Once I know all about your day we can discuss and work out the price of your wedding photography for the day.
So it you like what you see and are ready to take the next step, book now for an appointment to discuss your future needs.

Thanks for taking the time to read.
