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.

Elopements, intimate weddings and large destination weddings all require extensive pre planning to make the day go like clock work, so you can relax and enjoy your day.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

How many images will we get?

01

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?

02

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?

03

I am based in Auckland, so any weddings outside of here might incur some travel costs. I LOVE to travel, so where I can I try to absorb a big chunk of the cost myself, for example I don't charge travel time. If flights are required or over night accomodation, I charge this at the base rate. I don't stay in swanky digs, I'm happy in basic cabins or in my campervan, 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?

04

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.

Do you have a combo package?

05

Yes! Obviously there's only one of me, but I have a great team of photographer and filmmaker associates that assist me on the day. I also offer a 10% discount when booking a combo, so contact me for details.

Do you film with a drone?

06

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?

07

Absolutely! The wedding Industry is an amazing creative community, and chances are I might already know, or have worked with your chosen photographer before. You can book me for just videography.

What's your style?

08

I love to shoot in a candid, documentary way capturing all the real moments of the day. I will give you some guidance during your couple shoot, but I don't over pose and I try to keep it as natural and real as possible.

What photography awards have you won?

09

• NZIPP SILVER AWARD 2020

• NZIPP SILVER AWARD 2020

• NZIPP BRONZE AWARD 2020

• NZIPP BRONZE AWARD 2020

• NZIPP SILVER AWARD 2019

What are your COVID terms?

10

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.

Do you photograph/video large weddings?

11

I sure do! Once upon a time I only did large weddings with 100+ guests and I still photograph plenty of them. In the last couple of years I found my passion for elopements & intimate weddings, so I only take on a limited number of large weddings each year, so get in touch if you would like to find out my availability.
