      Where are you based?

      I am based in the outer eastern suburbs of Melbourne, Australia. I am more than happy to travel if I can make it work!

      What is your pricing?

      Check out the pricing page for all the details.

      Do you have insurance?

      Yes.

      I also have a current working with childrens check.

      How much direction do you give?

      I give enough direction for you to feel comfortable but not so much as for you to feel forced or posed. I aim for sessions to be comfortable and natural and an enjoyable experience. Head on over to reviews to hear from others about how they found this.

      What do your Packages include?

      Your wedding day coverage includes your photos from the day edited in a combination of black and white and colour. I offer digital only packages that are time based with albums/prints available if you would like them.

      Please see the pricing page for a more detailed breakdown.

      How many images can we expect?

      For a 5hr wedding you can expect 400+ images for an 8hr wedding you can expect 600+.

      I will definitely give you all the images from the day that are worth having and I don’t work to a restricted number but I also aim to not overwhelm you.

      Do you work with second photographers?

      Sometimes! I shoot most of my weddings solo but occasionally logistics or timing will mean that you’ll be better off having a additional photographer and sometimes it's just fun to have that second perspective.

      If you book a wedding that is 10hrs or more I do need to have someone else there to tag team with for breaks so that we don’t miss moments.

      A second photographer can come for all or part of your day for $100ph (minimum hours apply).

      Can we give you a shot list?

      I definitely want a list of the family group shots but trust me on the rest of it, I'll get it! Although do give me a heads up on any important but subtle details that I might not otherwise know about!

      What if it rains?

      I’ve shot a lot of rainy weddings! I’ve got some umbrellas or you are welcome to bring your own, usually you can duck in and out from under cover, we can find shelter in some surprising locations or do some moody indoor shots. Rainy days give great colours!

      How does booking work?

      Send me an email and I'll get right back to you! We can catch up over coffee (or virtually if that works better) and chat through how it works. When you're ready to book, you lock in your date with a 20% deposit with final payment due two weeks prior, there’s also a contract to look after us both. I'll send through some questionnaires and helpful info to guide your planning, then I get in touch with you a month or so out from the day and check schedule details so we're ready to go!

      What do we get?

      There are two options for a family shoot.

      An outdoor family session is 1 hour on location, usually late afternoon/evening or early morning. This is about you as a family, your connections with each other. You don't need to know how to pose, you just have to show up and be present to each-other and I do the rest.

      An everyday adventure is a longer shoot (1.5-2hrs) that might start in your home and then move on to an activity such as a trip to the playground or ice-cream shop - bring your ideas! This is more of a documentary shoot. It might be a snippet of your day at home or something more out of the ordinary.

      From here you get a protected online gallery ready for sharing and download of 60-80+ high resolution edited images in a combination of colour and black and white. 125+ for the longer Everyday Adventure option.

      Prints and products are also available if you would like them.

      Please contact me for extended family shoots as timing and pricing may vary depending on the size of your group.

      There is a small surcharge for travel upwards of an hour outside of Melbourne.

      What should we wear?

      Wear what you are comfortable in and what you’d like to be photographed in. Some people like to dress up a bit and others prefer wearing what they wear everyday. It’s probably best to avoid clothing with words/big brand names across them. No fluro please (it does funky weird things to your images)! Have a look through some of my other images if you need some inspiration.

      How do I book?

      Email me! We can work out a time that suits us both for your shoot. I'll send you a questionnaire for some details and to get a better understanding of your needs. A deposit is required to secure your booking and the remainder due a week before the shoot.

      What does it cost?

      Cost is all inclusive of the shoot time and high resolution digital images. Please see the pricing page for a more detailed breakdown.

      Prints and products additional and always optional. I will not try to upsell to you. Promise.

      When is the best time to have photos?

      If you'd like that wonderful evening light, the hour or hour and a half before sunset is the best time. If your kids are small and cope better then we go with an early morning.

      Everyday adventures - let's chat about the best time depending on what you have in mind!

      Do you know any good locations?

      I know lots of great locations and I’m more than happy to help you find the right spot to take your photos. If you have somewhere in mind that you would like to go let me know! We can also work in your home or backyard if that is easier.

      Do you do maternity or newborn shoots?

      I certainly do! Check out the pricing page for more info.
