Here’s a few FAQ that might help you answer any questions/concerns you might have. I try to be open and honest about my process so if you don’t see a question you have below please don’t hesitate to contact me.
What is your style as a photographer?
My style is mostly documentary wedding photography with a touch of artistic storytelling, and a handful of gently guided, relaxed and natural portraits. This basically means that I focus a lot on candid photos (especially photos of people having fun!) and on capturing your wedding as it happens - real moments, real emotion. That said, I won't leave you alone and clueless. I will typically put you where there is amazing lighting and guide you with some directions.
I will also mention, however, that your wedding is not all about the photographs. Your wedding is about love, about spending time with your loved ones, about having a good time. I believe as an Auckland photographer that the photographs should never take priority over the experience of your wedding. I want you to have an amazing day!
Will you be the only one shooting my wedding?
It is recommended to have a second photographer on bigger weddings (more than 100 people). It will give you two angles at the same time but also allow me to be more focused and capture more of your special moments. On smaller events like elopements or engagement sessions, it’ll just be me and my gear.
What should we wear?
While there is no specific style you should wear, there are certain clothing that work better than others. Bright bold colors and patterns I usually warn against. They can be distracting. I always tell my couple to wear something they are comfortable with that are earth toned neutral colours. Again though, this is all personal choice so if you want to rock a green shirt I won’t stop you!
How long will it take to get our images?
I pride myself on a quick turn around time. The industry norm is 4-8 weeks, but I try to have the soft copies done within 4 weeks while you wait for the prints or albums.
How many images do you deliver?
I would conservatively say that I will deliver at least 300 images (depending on what kind of coverage you've booked). There are usually a few similar images from every moment as I click away, but I will send them all to you, just in case you like the way you look on another.
Do you offer engagement sessions?
Yup, I think they are a great way for you to get to know the photographer, I also offer discounted engagement sessions with some of my wedding packages.
Will you travel?
Yes. It would be a great compliment for me that you would ask me to travel for your wedding! So if you’re planning an international wedding/elopement or just somewhere further out of Auckland let me know and I will fill you in about my travel requirements. I keep it really simple.
