Yes I do, please get in touch for more details on elopement/intimate wedding packages.
Since 2006, been some of the most wonderful years behind the camera.
Yes I do… I have Tania… she is amazing and has been working alongside me for many years. You will hear us laughing and having fun. Tania is Chief Dress floofer, and master of holding lights.
I live in the sunny North of New Zealand. I love to travel and I am a destination wedding specialist with weddings in USA, Hawaii, Pacific Islands, and many, many places nationally around New Zealand. Travel is charged very simply, if airfare, hotel and rental car are required to get to your destination, all you are responsible for is a direct reimbursement for the charges incurred.
Definitely!! I have 2 cameras I use on the day, should both those fail I have a third camera that my assistant usually carries.
It usually takes 4-6 weeks for delivery of digital images. Upon approval of album designs, most albums are ready for delivery within 6-12 weeks all depends on supplier demand.
Nope. The high resolution files do not have any watermarks.
The answer will simply be NO. The raw files are not available for viewing or purchase. Rest assured that any images not delivered truly are outtakes, these are closed eyes, flash didn’t fire, person walked in front of the lens…. True outtakes. I do not cull to meet a set number of images, so every viable image is edited carefully and delivered.
The number of images taken depends on many things – number of guests, hours of coverage, willingness of people to be photographed and most of all TIME, sometimes things run behind because of various things and many times our preplanned photography sessions are cut short to keep the rest of the day flowing, this of course is your decision to make at the time. Naturally I would prefer my full allocated contracted time, but it is your day and you make the call.
Simply no. However I do provide you with ”personal use license” in my contract, which allows you full rights to make prints, canvas, albums anywhere you choose. That’s not the same as obtaining copyright! Copyright simply means that I am the creator of the images, and I “own” the copyright. Selling or obtaining the copyright is not possible.
Absolutely. I strongly suggest that your list include no more than 12 groups. Very long list can take hours to complete and to make it fun and run smoothly we try to keep the family/group session to 30 minutes max.
I am so sorry but I can’t pencil in or hold dates. I accept bookings on a first come/first served basis, your date is only booked when a signed contract and date reservation fee has been received.
The date reservation is $600, with the remainder of your balance due 2 weeks before your wedding.
As soon as you can. Since I can’t pencil in dates it is best to book as soon as you have made your decision, it is not always easy to predict when the dates will fill up and I would hate for you to miss out.
Of course! I do request that they don’t go in front of me during the family photos and that they respect that I have a job to do during the ceremony and not push me out the way or repeatedly stand in front of me. I don’t allow any photographs to be taken during our creative session, for various reasons but frankly we have such a short time limit that it is very distracting.
Other than family groups, I’d prefer that you didn’t…. let me explain. It is very helpful to know what important family/ friends groups shots you would like and if there is something extra special of significance, but repeated requests for images take from other photographers or having me work from a checklist is counterproductive to how I work and interrupts my flow on the day in creating unique images just for you. While shot lists from bridal magazines are a great idea in theory, stopping to check off a list all day will hinder our process. Rest assured I will capture those images without having to follow a list.
