How much is the travel fee?
I am based on the Eastern suburb of Melbourne. Just let me know where your venues are and I can send a travel fee with the price list. Melbourne city and inner suburbs has no travel fee.
How many hours should we book?
Generally 8 hours coverage will cover from getting ready to first dance. Every wedding is unique and sometimes you may need more than 8 hours to cover all formalities. I’m more than happy to help you choose the coverage that will suit your wedding day, just ask! Please note that the coverage counts from when we start shooting to when we leave reception.
Can we meet?
Absolutely. Let’s grab a coffee and chat all about your wedding plan whether it’s before booking or before the wedding day. I’m usually in city after 5pm during weekday. If you’re far from city, we can schedule a Skype meeting.
When will we receive our photos?
About 6-8 weeks after the wedding.
What do we receive?
You’ll receive high resolution photos in a USB drive, in a beautiful wooden box. You’ll also have an access to your personalised online gallery.
Do you have insurance and backup equipments?
Yes and yes.
Do you shoot from a ‘shot list’ of images?
You may have seen ‘a shot list’ from wedding blogs and wondering if you should make your own shot list and send to me. The short answer is no, I don’t use the shot list when shooting the wedding. I approach wedding with photo-journalistic approach and capture what happens before me. I prefer to document ‘the real & genuine’ moments rather than posing you just to complete the shot list.
Do you retouch the photos?
Generally no, I don’t retouch photos. I may do simple retouch to remove pimple or blemish in some close-up photos. However, I don’t do retouch in regards to removing weight, wrinkles etc.
We’re not into posing in front of the camera. How will you work with us during portrait shoot?
I’m not into posing in front of camera neither! I like to give you some times to just be in the moment with each other after you’re just married and I’ll be there to document all the emotions and connections that you have for each other. We’ll go for a walk and I will shoot candidly while you’re walking and giggling with each other naturally. I’ll also give you some guidance if need to. It will be very relaxed and nothing awkward, I promise!
How much time do you need for B&G photos after ceremony?
This depends on how much time do you have between ceremony and reception and the location of both venues. I can take B&G photos within 20 mins, however, the more time you have, the more photos you will have. I recommend schedule your portrait shoot 1 – 1.5 hours before the sunset time to get the best light of the day (soft light) for your photos. For me, 1 hour is a good hour for bridal party photos and B&G photos. Locations are not as important to me as the connection between you two when it comes to photos. I've found it is best to have your portraits photos somewhere close by your ceremony or reception venue.
Can you recommend videographers?
Definitely! I've worked with Pat and Frank from Lightbox Media in many weddings and I highly recommend them for your wedding video!
