Frequently Asked Questions
Do you do elopements or micro weddings?
100% – Yes, I love to photograph elopements and micro weddings! The trend of moving towards a smaller wedding (obviously, predominantly due to the current pandemic) definitely has it’s advantages. The more intimate setting has been beautiful, the focus is just on the couple and their commitment to each other. The few guests that are in attendance are all the more grateful for being there. Couples can actually spend quality time together on their wedding day and they can do what they want, rather than submit to the pressures of tradition or family etc. Plus, elopements and micro weddings do tend to be less stressful – less stressful to organise and less stressful on the wallet lol!
I offer a few different options to my couples opting for the smaller wedding.. email me, tell me about your vision and ask to see what I can offer you. xx
How many images do we get on USB?
Almost as many as I can shoot! It is NOT uncommon for my newlyweds to get hundreds of images in a 6 hour wedding package. They are your memories – who am I to keep them from you?
Why are you so affordable?
I moved my business from a commercial premises to my private residence! I save thousands every month and simply pass on the savings to you! Gotta love that!
Can I get my photos on USB?
Absolutely! All of my wedding packages include a USB with your edited high resolution images – they are print ready and DO NOT have a watermark.
Do you charge extra for travel?
For the most part the answer is no to additional fees. That said, if your event isn’t in my area, the travel fee is minimal! It really just covers the additional fuel to get to you, I certainly do not charge for my time.
Will you travel overseas or interstate?
I LOVE to travel to exciting new places! I simply ask that you cover flights and accommodation costs in addition to your wedding collection. I often do weddings in Fiji, Thailand and New Zealand. Did I mention that I can also speak Thai? And, come from a very diverse background and married into another… The Asian and Pacific Island cultures are very close to my heart.
I really want candid photos…
I was trained as a photojournalist and photographic artist at the Queensland College of Art, Griffith University. So, natural and ‘real’ imagery is what I specialise in. Everyone talks about ‘candid’ photos, but it’s more than likely that ‘candid’ moment will happen with the car park or with crowds of people in the background. So I do direct you a little, usually to control the backgrounds and light, and to ensure that you have plenty of variety in your imagery. Once I have you in an amazing setting, it’s play time! That is when I love to just encourage playfulness, laughter and lots of kissing! After all, it is your wedding day and you want to enjoy it!
Do you charge less for weekdays?
I do offer some special prices for Monday – Thursday weddings. Check out my prices page for package details. I also work closely with the team at Pop Up Weddings Bayside and Elope Brisbane.. they offer all inclusive packages, they may be worth checking out!
How do I book?
I have a booking form that we ask you fill in – it is a contract that outlines your selected package and our obligation to you. It is in a digital format so it is super easy to type into or you can go old school and print it out. There is also a number of payment options on the form. Everyone manages their money differently, so I give you some options for payment.
Do you photograph same sex couples?
Ahh… hell yeah! Love is love, is love, is love lol! We totally support all couples – you just need to be loved up. Same sex weddings, families, couples are all welcome – we see beauty in all aspects of the rainbow! xx.
How are you keeping safe?
With the rules and restrictions around Covid-19 changing everyday, it is important for me to keep up to date and follow the recommendations given to us by Queensland Health. To ensure that I comply and keep you, your family, myself and my family safe I have adopted a number of new protocols. In addition to the precautions we all take as individuals on a daily basis (such as good hygiene and social distancing), I also practise the following
- Keep hand sanitiser in my vehicle and sanitise before and after all locations
- Carry a mask on my person incase I find myself in a situation where social distancing is difficult
- Clean my gear after every job
- Keeping a record of my movements, including downloading and activating the Covid-safe app
- Abiding by covid-safe plans of any venues that I may shoot at
