tips & info
your planning guide
With over 12 years experience photographing weddings, I'm here to share all my knowledge to help you plan the wedding of your dreams. Got a question for me? Check out my wedding FAQs below.
QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
How many images will we get?
My style of photography is documentary, which means I do take a lot of images as I'm always observing and taking photos when you don't realise. I don't have a cap on how many you will receive. Once I've taken out the ones that didn't quite make the final cut, all the remaining ones will be edited and given to you.
How do we get our images or film? How long will it take?
You will be sent a link to download all your images or film, which you can easily share with your family and friends around the world with an easy click of the button. I have a fairly fast turnaround time, as I know how excited all my couples are to re-live their day. You can expect to receive your footage around 4 weeks after your wedding.
Do you charge travel fees?
I am based in Auckland, so any weddings outside of the area will incur some travel costs. So chat to me about your location and I'll give you a travel quote.
What is the difference between a highlight video and a cinematic film?
A Highlight Video can only be booked as an add on if you have already booked me for your photography. I capture mini snippets of hand held footage alongside taking your photos, and turn them in to a beautiful keepsake highlight video designed to share socially. A Cinematic Film uses different, specialised equipment such as gimbal/drones/recording mics, and the result is a longer cinematic film for you to treasure with audio.
Can I book you for photos & film? Is there a discount?
There's obviously only one of me, so aside from video highlights, I can't offer both photography and cinematic films at the same wedding. However the wedding industry in NZ is very tight knit, and I can recommend some amazing peeps that can provide videography if I am doing your photography, or the other way around.
Do you film with a drone?
I love any excuse to bring my drone out! Dependent upon local flying restrictions (and the weather) I bring along my drone to all weddings.
We have already booked another photographer, but would like to book you for video, is this ok?
Absolutely! As there is only one of me, I'm only able to offer either photography or videography at a wedding, so I am always working alongside other vendors. If you want to book me for either photo or video, I can recommend some amazing creatives for the other service.
What are your COVID terms?
If your wedding is postponed directly due to NZ Government restrictions on public events then no charge or fee will apply for a postponement to a new date - please check dates with me first to make sure I am available on your new date. I want to work with you to make this time as stress free as possible. So talk to me about options. In order to comply to Government restrictions on venues, I am a fully vaccinated vendor.
Do you photograph/video large weddings and/or full day coverage?
Not any more, after 12 years photographing weddings I have found my passion for the smaller, intimate weddings and elopements. However if you want full day coverage or have a large wedding I can recommend some amazing photographers to contact.
