When I attend your wedding it is not a ‘trial run’ for me, nor is it a side hobby. This is my profession. This is my passion. This is why I capture the most beautiful wedding photographs for the most beautiful day of your life.
First and foremost, you want beautiful, professional photographs to commemorate the most wonderful day of your life. You’ve got one ‘shot’ to get your wedding photos right, so trust only an experienced wedding photographer.
When couples find me, they seem to have a huge sense of relief because they have found a wedding photographer in Melbourne who offers professional packages at an affordable price.
Being married myself, I know that weddings are expensive – but a wedding photographer doesn’t have to cost the earth. When you use my services, you don’t pay for a prestigious studio or high advertising costs, you simply pay for stunning photographs taken by an experienced, professional and friendly wedding photographer.
Also, to keep your costs down you don’t pay for my travel costs or meal costs, and you can have as many location shoots as time allows.
When you use my wedding photographic services, you receive every single photograph that I take, on disc. Also, all copyright belongs to you, which means that you don’t have to seek permission to take additional copies, or to have your photos published anywhere.
I understand that choosing a wedding photographer is a big decision, that’s why I’m happy to provide you with contact details from past customers. (I respect my client’s privacy, so I will only supply you with the details of people who have expressly allowed me to do so).
There’s nothing worse than deciding on a wedding photographer and then realising that the chances of booking him or her is near impossible. While I can’t guarantee that I’ll be free on your particular date, I am certainly not booked out three years in advance. I try to fit around your date, not the other way around.
Most couples want photographic coverage of: the bride and groom’s preparations, the bride arriving, the ceremony, location shots, guest shots at the church/garden/ reception venue, entrance to the reception and mock cake cut. This means that your package includes approximately 10 hours of my time. I want to capture every moment, rather than clock-watching so that I can make it to the next wedding!
We’ve all been to weddings where the photographer unintentionally or deliberately becomes the star of the show. I don’t bark orders or boss you or your guests around. I can mix with a wide range of people, and I’m experienced at efficiently organising groups and individuals in a polite and friendly manner.
While I offer specific wedding photography packages, I am also quite flexible about what I offer. Just get in touch with me.
Having a good knowledge of Melbourne and country Victoria, such as the Yarra Valley, means that I am aware of the ideal places to get the best photographs. However, for added reassurance, please read my next point…
I like to meet both of you at your venue/s around 4-6 weeks before your wedding day. This allows us to chat about the photographs in more detail, and it gives me the opportunity to think about the type of shots I’d like to take beforehand. This is a great time to discuss your ideas with me as well. It’s your wedding, so I welcome and value your input.
It’s better that you get the right Melbourne photographer for your wedding, even if that means that I may not be right person for you. For example, I’d rather be honest about my pricing rather than lure you with a cheaper package, only to slug you with exorbitant, hidden fees later. With my packages and services, what you see is what you get.
Like most couples, you’ll be keen to see your wedding photographs after your wedding. Your photographs will be ready within 2-3 weeks, and if you’re on your honeymoon, you’ll have your very own private web page that you can view while you’re away. Your private web page remains on my website for 12 Months.
I have a range of wedding photography options, with all options including photographs on disc. Also, many couples order wall prints and albums from me years later, especially to commemorate milestone anniversaries.
