FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
IS TRAVEL INCLUDED IN THE PACKAGE?
Yes! If you are getting hitched in New Zealand, there’s no additional travel fee. So you can get married on the snow topped mountains of Queenstown, or on a remote beach in Northland, and the package remains the same. If you are not getting married in NZ, keep an eye on my travel dates as I may be able to work your location in to my existing plans, otherwise get in touch and I’ll work with you to get my travel costs as low as possible.
CAN YOU HELP US PLAN OUR ELOPEMENT?
I’ve been photographing weddings for over 10 years, so I’m packed full of helpful tips. I am here to offer as much help and direction as you need, from picking the right vow location, to your timings, to recommending local suppliers.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO GET OUR PHOTOS/VIDEO AFTER THE WEDDING?
I only accept a limited number of weddings per year, this is so I can give each one the attention and energy it deserves. You can expect to receive your photos/videos back within 4 weeks of your wedding.
DO YOU OFFER MULTIPLE DAY COVERAGE?
Yes I sure do! I’m very flexible to help make your wedding day perfect. If you need coverage over 2-3 days talk to me about your vision and I will do my best to make it work.
WHAT IS YOUR STYLE?
I’m a natural story teller and love to photograph weddings with a candid, documentary approach. I capture all the real moments of the day, I don’t over stage and direct fake posed photos, and instead focus on the real emotion between you. I am an award winning landscape photographer, and besides those close up moments, I also love to incorporate the backdrop in to your story, there’s a reason you’ve chosen that epic location so I love to celebrate it.
HOW MANY PHOTOS DO WE GET?
Every wedding is completely different, and so is the number of images I provide each couple. My documentary approach does mean I generally take a lot more photos than what you could expect from someone with an editorial approach, but as a guide you can expect between 70-100 edited images per hour.
HOW MANY WEDDINGS DO YOU SHOOT A YEAR?
I only except a limited number of weddings each year. As many of the weddings I photograph/video include travel, I don’t book back to back dates so there’s no stress if any transport issues arise between locations. I therefore only accept a maximum of 20 weddings per year.
DO YOU HAVE A SECOND PHOTOGRAPHER?
I have a great team of second photographers available for the larger packages, however small weddings and elopements I normally shoot solo as this helps maintain the imitate feel the couple wanted.
WE WANT TO BOOK, WHATS NEXT?
That’s awesome! I can’t wait to get to know you more and document your amazing day. Once I’ve checked I have your date free, we will meet up for a chat and a coffee (either in person or via video chat) where you can tell me more about your epic plans, and I can answer any extra questions you may have. From here you will be sent a booking form and deposit details.
