I only offer a few options as this will help keep your package less complicated. I do not charge by the hour or cap/set the number of photographs we deliver to you. This is because I believe when you want somebody there to capture one of the greatest days of your life you want them there capturing ALL the important moments and delivering ALL those moments to you!
Film & Photography
One photographer for the whole day capturing all the special moments. This includes bridal prep, ceremony, family shots, location shots and coverage of the reception.
Two photographers which gives us the power of double the coverage on the day and a whole lot more photos for you to keep!
This is our way of creatively showcasing the best parts of your special day. We edit this into a dynamic 3-5 minute short story. Also included is a full length copy of all the speeches from the reception.
Just want that little bit extra? Our extended story is a 5-7 minute film much like our short story, only longer, to fit in even more of those amazing memories of the day! Also included is a full length copy of the ceremony and speeches.
QUICK Q & A
ARE YOU AVAILABLE INTERSTATE AND INTERNATIONALLY FOR WEDDINGS?
Yes, we love the opportunity to capture weddings at beautiful locations away from our home in Cairns.
DO YOU OFFER CUSTOM MADE PACKAGES?
We are more than happy to discuss your individual needs for your wedding.
DO YOU CHARGE FOR TRAVEL?
For weddings in the Cairns, Port Douglas and Cairns Tableland area I do not charge for travel. For weddings outside this area I do. However, we only charge the travel at cost price quoted upon booking with me.
WHAT TYPE OF EQUIPMENT DO YOU USE?
I use a range of professional camera equipment some of which includes: Nikon and Lumix camera bodies with a wide range of lenses. I also use a range of professional audio and production equipment to make your wedding look even more cinematic and amazing
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO RECEIVE THE FINISHED PRODUCT?
We aim to get our wedding films and photos done as quickly as possible after the day. Generally, this can be from 4-8 weeks; however, depending on the time of year and our work load this may change a little, but we will always keep you updated with how everything is coming along!
HOW DO WE RECEIVE THE FINISHED PRODUCT?
For photography, with your permission, I always love to upload a sneak peak preview album of about 10-20 of our favourite photos from the wedding. The entire gallery of your wedding photos, once completed, will be emailed to you as an online gallery. Your wedding film will also be viewable online in the gallery, and we will email you direct download links for you to save the films to your devices. We utilise Pass which is an awesome online platform with some really great features and is super easy to use!
DO YOU EDIT OR PHOTOSHOP YOUR PHOTOS?
Generally speaking, no, I do not Photoshop any of your wedding photos (unless asked). I aim to take the best images out of the camera for the most natural look. I do, however, colourise the photos ready for you to share to social media and ready for print!
DO WE GET TO CHOOSE OUR OWN MUSIC?
Because we are required to use royalty free music, I purchase our music from a specific royalty free website. However, I will work hard with you in making sure the music that is chosen matches the feel of your special day and who you are as a couple. It is also important to me to have creative control over my work to ensure I can do what I do best.
DO YOU OFFER ANY DISCOUNTS ON YOUR WEDDING FILM AND PHOTOGRAPHY PACKAGES?
Yes! if you book both film and photography with me, not only do you have the benefit of having the one creative team look after capturing both your wedding photos and video, you will also save some cash!!! I offer anywhere from a $300 - $600 discount for booking both film and photography with me.
HOW LONG DO YOU GENERALLY STAY AT WEDDINGS?
I believe that when you book someone to capture your wedding that you should have them there to capture the whole day and all the important moments. So I aim to be there for most of your day, including bridal prep, the ceremony, locations photos and all the fun and formalities at the reception.
CAN WE GET THE RAW FILES FROM YOU?
I consider what I do as art. There is much that goes into our work to produce the kind of results we do that goes beyond just the RAW footage of your wedding day. The RAW footage by itself is generally nothing special, but I put a lot of work into post-production and editing to make it look the way all my wedding films and photos do. I consider the RAW footage unfinished canvases, and just like any other artist this is not something I will release. The wedding packages are tailored so that all the coverage you need is included into the various options. This includes full length copies of the ceremony and speeches in the various pricing options. If, for whatever reason, you feel like you need something extra please have a chat to me and I will be more than happy to arrange something.
