Eeek, you’re ENGAGED!
I’m the wedding photographer for all the people who want a wedding that isn’t a staged show but one heck of a party.
I’m all about them candid moments. Because a wedding isn’t about placing people in a line and telling them to laugh (yuck!). Instead I find it’s all in those laughs with your childhood bestie, the hug with your mother when you’ve just gotten ready or your kick ass weird dance moves with your new spouse! All those moments that you didn’t plan, but that happen anyway.
“We are completely blown away by our photos.”
Not just of us but of all our wonderful guests. We are just so stoked to have memories and images of our favourite people. The images are just incredible. They feel just like us, so genuine and lovely and happy. Looking at them transports us right back to the day.
I have just posted some and have already had a million messages from people saying how much they love them and how amazing you were on the day. We feel so lucky to have had you as our photographer. You are so lovely, friendly, beautiful and so easy to work with. There is no one else we would rather have to capture the biggest day of our lives.
Thank you a million times for everything!

Ok, how does this work?
01. Let’s meet up!
In person over a glass of bubbles, or via Zoom and whatever you have in your fridge.
02. Time to book
If all is well, it’s time to get things in order. To lock in a date I require a signed contract + a $1,000 retainer to lock in the date.
03. During the planning process
I’m an email away should you need any help during the planning process. I’ve helped couples figure out timelines, find makeup artists and DJs and venues and just generally cheer you on when you need it!
04. Pre-wedding meeting
We meet about 3-5 weeks before the wedding to talk through all the details so I am all prepped to capture all the stuff that’s important to you!
05. Location scouting
About a week before the wedding I’ll head out location scouting – finding heaps of rad spots for the portraits & family photos based on your likings + weather options.
06. Wedding day!
I’m all about candids and chilled vibes! No awkward staging, no forced smiles, no posing! Unposed, unfussed, easy!
07. Sneak peeks the next day
You get the first few photos the very next day! Cause who can wait? I surely can’t!
08. All photos within 6 weeks
The rest of the photos take a little bit longer: you’ll have them all, print-ready + web-ready, within 6 weeks of the wedding.
I had to stop watching at work or the tears were going to start!! Happy tears I promise. They are amazing! You are the greatest – a million thank yous! We love these.

This is what you get
All you need to do is pick the number of hours you want!
Thank you so much – we just cracked open some champagne and went though all the beautiful photos you’ve printed for us. They age stunning!
Thanks again – you’re THE BEST!!!

Ten hours is when you’re having one big festivity. You might have two ceremonies (I’m looking at you door games + tea ceremonies!), heaps of formalities or just want to do a bunch of photos before the ceremony kicks off so you can join your guests for cocktail hour. Sometimes you just need a bit more time, that’s all.
Eight hours is by far the most common coverage I do. This time generally comfortably covers both of you getting ready, as well as the ceremony, family photos, portraits and 2-3 hours of the reception until the dancing kicks off!
This is for a shorter or smaller celebration. It would for example cover the ceremony, family photos, portraits and the first couple of hours of the reception.
You need a bit more than any of these packages? No worries, I got you. Just add as many extra hours as you need!
Portrait sessions are the bomb. We spend about an hour hanging out and snapping away at a location that’s important to you or simply epic. It’s the perfect time for you to get some rad or fun photos to use in a guestbook or on your wedding site, or simply just an excuse to get killer photos.
Or use this session to grab your wedding photos after your wedding. Yep! I said after. You can schedule in your portrait session on another day, pick epic locations and not have to worry about waiting guests, because there aren’t any!
Fine art album
25 pages, extra spreads at $50 per spread
Lush, thick pages and flush mounted, which means that you’ll have a completely at surface on every single page of the album: allowing dramatic full spreads. It’s the pièce de résistance for wedding albums, and will get ‘oohs’ and ‘aahs’ from anyone who has a look at it.
Surprise Fine art album
The exact same thing as above, but you don’t get any revisions – it’s a surprise! You pick your 10-15 most essential photos. I’ll do the rest and you’ll have your album in a jiffy!
Next step: just email me back and we’ll set up a meeting!
Go to your email. just do it. You know you want to. or just maybe go have a piece of chocolate and a glass of wine, you deserve that too!
