Frequently Asked Questions
Perth Wedding Photographer
Where are you based?
I am a wedding photographer based in Perth, Western Australia. Get to know me here.
Do you travel for weddings?
Absolutely. I love destination weddings, whether in country Australia or overseas. Travel rates vary so please ask for a travel quote with your enquiry.
What is your shooting style?
My shooting style is friendly, fun and relaxed. I’ll make you feel comfortable, guiding you and giving subtle direction to find the best light and the most flattering angle.
I want you to feel as relaxed as possible so your images are truly ‘you’.
What wedding photography packages do you offer?
I offer a range of wedding photography packages. Find out more about my Perth wedding photography packages. Please get in touch to check my availability for your Perth, South West or destination wedding.
Do you offer wedding albums?
Yes, I offer fine art wedding albums. There’s something special about being able to hold, feel and look through your wedding album. A wedding album is much more than just photos. It’s your story.
Can we meet you before booking?
Of course. I’d love to meet you, hear your story and tell you more about how I can capture your wedding day.
If you don’t live in Perth, we can chat over Skype.
We love your work. How do we book you for our wedding?
That’s great! Send through a wedding photography enquiry to check my availability for your wedding date. You’ll need to sign an agreement and pay a retainer fee to secure your booking.
Please note I do not hold dates. I book on a first come first serve basis provided both the signed agreement and retainer fee have been received.
How far in advance should we book you?
As early as possible. The wedding season in Australia is usually from September to April so popular dates get booked quickly.
Do you believe in same sex marriage?
Yes! I’ve had the honour of photographing several same sex weddings and engagement sessions. I am so happy all couples can now legally marry in Australia. See Perth same sex weddings and same sex engagement shoots.
Do you offer engagement sessions?
Yes. Engagement sessions capture the love, excitement and anticipation leading up to your big day. They are shot on location and include a selection of digital images. See Perth engagement shoots.
Perth engagement shoots are a great way for us to get to know each other and for you to get used to being photographed. Often, couples use the images for their wedding invites or to display at the wedding reception. See Perth pre wedding photos. For more details please get in touch.
We have never had professional photos taken and are nervous. Does this matter?
Not at all. In fact, most people I photograph have never had professional photographs taken. It’s normal to be a little nervous. I can assure you those nerves will disappear once we start shooting. Most people end up loving the experience and having lots of fun.
Do we need to give you a shot list for the wedding day?
No. As an experienced Perth wedding photographer I’ll be ready for all the important moments. However, if there is a specific shot you would really love please let me know.
Do we need to practise for the wedding day photos?
No. Homework is not required! Just be yourself and leave the rest up to me.
Do we need to provide you with dinner at the wedding reception?
Wedding photographers get hungry too so if your coverage includes most of the reception, a meal is greatly appreciated.
What happens if it rains?
Sometimes the most inspiring wedding photos are captured on rainy days. We can find a spot undercover or if you don’t mind being a little adventurous with an umbrella, the results can be well worth it. Check out a rainy engagement shoot.
What is the best time for photos?
In Australia, late afternoon to early evening is the best time for photographs because the light is softer. This is usually the 1.5 hours before the sunsets.
How much time should we allow for bridal party location photos?
It depends how many locations you want to visit and how much travel is involved. I recommend at least 1.5 hours plus travel time. I can help you plan your day in advance to make sure there’s enough time for everything.
Do you take family photos on the wedding day?
Yes. Family photos are usually done after the ceremony at the same location. Allow at least 30 minutes for your family photos. They are the images you will cherish for years to come.
Where can we see more of your work?
We are having a small wedding. Do you photograph intimate weddings?
Yes. I photograph weddings of all sizes.
Why is there so much variation in prices between wedding photographers?
A wedding photographer’s price reflects their experience, time invested before, during and after the wedding, the quality of products and level of service provided. Simply put, your level of investment reflects what you receive.
We love your photography style but aren’t getting married. Do you offer other shoots?
Please get in touch and let me know what you have in mind.
We have more questions that aren’t listed here. How can we get in touch?
