Whether you’ve been dreaming of your wedding day and keeping scrapbooks for inspiration since childhood, or if you’ve just begun the exciting process of exploring the endless options for styles, themes and locations, each wedding is always a beautiful and unique celebration.
It is my wish that through my approach and imagery that your personal style and the hopes you have for your day are celebrated through your images in an unobtrusive and fun way.
Through careful liaison and planning in the lead up, I hope that you will feel relaxed about being photographed and trust me to be with you to capture your special love and your special family and friends – no matter how big or intimate the guest list… I would love to meet you and hear about your love story.

Engagement images can be a lovely way to experience the feel of being in front of the camera before your special wedding celebration, and for me to get to know each bride and groom a little better. Engagement sessions are $520 with images presented on a bamboo keepsake USB.

Your top questions answered!
How much coverage do we need?
The package you choose will depend on how much of the day you’d like captured and where the day’s events are happening. If you are wishing for both bride and groom preparations, through to the celebrations late into the evening, an 8 to 10-hour package will be for you. If you are having a very small number of guests and a more intimate wedding, or you’d just like ceremony, family and bridal portraits, the 2 to 4-hour package will be more suited to you.
How many images will we receive?
This depends on the coverage, guest numbers and travel throughout the day, but on average you can expect between 60 and 90 images per hour.
Colour or black and white?
Most of my wedding images are provided in colour, but I do feel some images are more suited to black and white, so I do include a mix.
When will we receive our images?
All final high resolution, edited images will be presented on a crystal keepsake USB and in a digital gallery delivered between 4 and 6 weeks after your wedding day. I usually provide 5 or 6 sneak peek images to couples the next day too.
Where are you located and will you travel?
I live at Culcairn, between Albury/Wodonga and Wagga and travel to these regional cities and within 120km from my home in any direction to other surrounding areas is included in the packages. Enquiries are welcome from further afield.
What deposit do I need to pay?
To make a date yours, I ask for a $500 deposit. The balance is payable a week prior to the wedding day. Periodic payments can be arranged on request.
Should we meet?
I would love to meet you to chat about your wedding celebration before you choose to secure a photographer. It is such an important decision with so many wonderful photographers all with their own creative offering, and being such a big investment, I understand we need to be the perfect fit.
Are you insured?
I have an insurance policy including $20 million public liability insurance. A certificate can be provided to venues on request.
Have you worked at our venues?
As a professional, I photograph at so many locations, and even private properties, in different seasons and in varying weather conditions. Every wedding celebration is unique and if I do happen to be unfamiliar with your particular location, you can be assured I always plan everything beforehand and conduct site visits anyway, so I am confident in everything from backdrops to lighting, and even accessibility prior to your day (especially factoring in weather conditions too). This is to ensure there is no guesswork at the wedding and everything flows as smoothly as possible, and you receive images you’ll love.
Why does professional photography often seem so expensive?
A usual wedding will take anywhere from 30 to 40 hours of work on top of the day’s coverage in going through all the images and making sure you are presented with photographs that show everyone in the most beautiful way. As part of this editing process, there are basic enhancements made to brightness/colour etc and any cropping/finishing touches. As well as shooting time and the creative editing process, there are also various equipment costs, insurance, vehicle, phone and internet, hard drives and back-up storages, and other professional development costs to factor in to ensure that I keep my knowledge up-to-date and you can feel assured you will receive images you are proud to show to future generations.
What if we really don’t like being in front of the camera?
That’s okay. It’s rare these days to find people who love to pose. I find myself shooting between two different styles on the day. I shoot in a photojournalism/candid way during the times when it’s purely about you enjoying the elements of the day such as the ceremony and reception, then during the portraits and creative bridal party images, I also shoot candidly, while giving you gentle guidance on the best angles and best locations to suit the lighting and time of day. I provide just enough direction so you’re not stressing about what to do, but you’ll also be so focused on connecting with each other you may even forget I have a camera in hand.
Do you capture formal family portraits as part of the day?
Of course. Formal family portraits are certainly an important part of any wedding. Whilst I do shoot largely candidly during the wedding day, these images are usually factored in after the ceremony and include various combinations of immediate family and extended groups, depending on your guest list.
What security do you offer for images captured?
I usually shoot with two Canon digital SLR cameras and bring a range of lenses. I also have back-up camera bodies and other lenses also on hand in case of equipment malfunction. My camera bodies take two cards in each, so each shot I take is automatically duplicated, then back-ups also occur when images are uploaded to my computer systems.
How far ahead do we need to book in?
It’s never too early. For popular spring and autumn dates, I can often book 12 to 18 months in advance. In saying that, I have had less than a few weeks notice for some small wedding celebrations if the date is still available, so it’s always worth getting in touch!
