Are you the only Photographer?
I am! I may in some instances have an assistant with me but I will be your only photographer throughout the day. You won’t have a thousand cameras following you around all day. It’s so much more enjoyable for you and your guests when the wedding keeps its intimacy.
Do you edit all the files and can we have all the original raw files?
I cull the images by removing those that are out of focus, harshly lit and unrecoverable and those with eyes half closed etc. I edit the images in a subtle way in lightroom, I don’t give out the raw files sorry. That’s what you pay me for and I also create apart of my signature look in post processing so you wouldn’t be getting a finished product. You deserve the best product and the editing part is a big part of delivering that to you.
Why 10 hours for your coverage what if we run late or we don’t want you for that long?
10 hours has proven to be the magic number. This amount of time seems to allow for all of the items included in your coverage. However if you do think you want me for less time, perhaps your eloping, give me an email and I can quote you individually. Think that 10 hours won’t cover it? I can hang around for longer, depending on how much extra you want me I may charge for extra coverage but we can chat about it when you book for sure.
Can we meet before the wedding?
Yes of we can! We can meet for lunch or coffee somewhere and talk weddings till our hearts are content! We can meet before you book, just before the wedding, basically whenever you like.
What gear do you use?
I use x2 Nikon D700 bodies, SB-700 Speedlight, primes are my go to lenses and majority of the time I shoot with the 28mm, 50mm & 60mm, Sigma 35mm and a zoom 70-200mm that keeps me out of the way at your ceremony. I shoot RAW, edit on a mac and use lightroom.
Do you need a meal on the day?
That would be amazing, I won’t demand it from you though, I’m too polite. I will be super grateful for a meal and I’m totally fine if you want to give me a piece of wedding cake too.
Can I give you a shot list or a pinterest board of images I want?
Of course, I love to know where my clients heads are at and the particular shots they like. I won’t need a shot list per say as I shoot more photo journalistic style of photography. I treat each wedding differently because each day unfolds differently. To get the best images I let things happen naturally. In saying that, I LOVE pinterest and look on there often so shoot them through. But don’t worry I capture everything, even the smallest details so if your happy to let me do my thang you will be taken care of.
What if it rains?
We get wet! Get some umbrellas and gumboots and get out there. I have had some of my best images, happiest brides and funniest bridal sessions in cyclonic weather!
