Frequently asked questions

Do I travel?

Yes, I love to travel. However, as I am sure you know, thanks to the current situation that has changed a little. Please contact me if you are thinking of doing your wedding interstate. Unfortunately, at this time, no overseas travel.
Weddings within 60 minutes of Sydney do not incur any travel fees.

Where should I have my photos taken?

These choices are entirely up to you. Some clients prefer to stay in their home. Others prefer to get outside with their family and choose a location where they feel just as comfortable. If you’re not sure what to choose, we can have a chat together as we plan your session. I have some exceptional locations I can show you.

What do I wear?

In my experience, a natural/neutral palette photographs well in the majority of settings and avoids the harsh contrast of too many colours and shades. In saying that, colours can bring life and vibrancy to your photos, and is a suitable choice if this represents your family well. My recommendation is not to aim for outfits that match but to observe how the colours you have chosen work together. Can’t decide if you want one or the other? Let’s chat about the option of an outfit change!

Do I offer print & framing?

Absolutely! I know this is sometimes an overwhelming and time-consuming task, from finding the right printing and framing place to dropping off and collecting your pieces. Let me know if this is something you would like included with your full service.

Can we meet up before our photography session?

I include an in-person or virtual meeting; this happens about a month before your wedding day. We sit down and talk through your day. You will have already filled in a detailed questionnaire that will highlight some important things for your day, but the meeting will give us a chance to fine-tune your day from a photography perspective and make sure we have a plan. I usually touch base with family or other photography packages either by phone or message a week or few days prior to your session. However, in saying this, I am always contactable via email or phone and welcome any questions you may have.

How does payment work? Do you offer payment plans?

To secure any session, you need to pay a booking fee of 25% of the total cost. This 25% guarantees your date. Weddings, Final payment is due 1 month prior to your wedding day. Family and other sessions Final payment is due 2 weeks prior to your shoot day. Yes, I offer payment plans. You can pay via Direct debit or PayPal (which includes Credit Card)

How many photos will I receive?

This varies from session to session especially if your session is a wedding or family or something else. However, You can expect to receive approx. 50-60 photographs per hour of coverage for a traditional wedding day, smaller more intimate celebrations may be less.
