Eeek, you’re ENGAGED!
So, you’re getting hitched! That’s so exciting. And you’ve chosen to do it in the smallest, most intimate and absolutely lovely ways! Really, what could be better than that? I’m all about capturing your day through candid moments. Be- cause a wedding isn’t about placing people in a line and telling them to smile, it’s those smiles that come of an inside joke from your bestie, or the hug with your partnerwhen you’ve just gotten ready. It’s all those moments that you didn’t plan, but that hap- pen anyway. I will be there for however long you need me. Regardless if it’s a full day, a few days, or just a few hours.
What is an elopement/tiny wedding?
Elopements/tiny weddings can be so many things for
so many people. I’ve made it easy though: I count this as weddings that have less than 20 guests. And yes, that’s a hard line. I got to draw it somewhere, and from my experience, 20 and under is a whole different ball game than above. So that’s it.
So to qualify for these packages, you have to have 20 or less guests. That’s it. Boom!
“OMG they are amazing!!!!”

Ok, how does this work?
01. Book it in
If all sounds good, it’s time to get things in order. To lock in a date I require a signed contract + a 30% retainer to lock in the date. We go through all of it in detail when we meet.
PS. Sometimes we need to Skype or have a drink first. Just let me know if so and we’ll get that sorted!
02. 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!
03. Pre-wedding questionnaire
The wedding is getting closer! I get in touch 6 weeks before to go through all the wedding details. I send you this questionnaire that will help me be prepped for everything on the day: things like timeline, how to do family photos as well as understanding what’s important to you, so I can focus on that on the wedding day.
04. 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. I’ll share my findings with you so I can understand even better what stuff you like.
05. Wedding day!
It’s about to go down! Most of the wedding day I stay in the background and capture things as they happen. I’m not here to stage anything. And for portraits I use direction, not posing. This means things to do or things to talk about. Unposed, unfussed, easy!
06. Sneak peeks the next day
You get the first few photos the very next day! Cause who can wait? I surely can’t!
07. All photos within 5 weeks
The rest of the photos take a little bit longer: you’ll have them all, print-ready + web-ready, within 5 weeks of the wedding.
“Stina is a rock star!”
We put our trust in her genius hands and she delivered in spades! We both hate having our photos taken and she made the process special to us and unique. Yay!

This is what you get
I’m a planner by heart. I have lists everywhere (just ask my husband..) and like to be as prepared as I can be. Because on the day I want to know that we’re picking the acest of locations and making the most out of the time we have for portraits. It’s your wedding day, not a shoot after all. That is what it’s about after all! All my wedding packages always include the following:
All you need to do is pick the number of hours you want!
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.

The Full shebang
Up to 10 hours
An elopement or tiny wedding might be a small affair, but it doesn’t make it a small experience. I will often cover the whole day, and include things like:
The sky is the limit! I find that the best elopement or tiny wedding days is when you’ve made it an experience for yourself. Need ideas? Ask!
Up to 3 hours
Three hours is my minimum coverage. I never recommend less than that – because your wedding day isn’t a quick photoshoot, it’s your wedding. This base package will generally allow some coverage of getting ready, ceremony and portraits. You can then add more hours if you want.
Please note that elopement packages can be booked Monday – Thursday all year round. Any elopements during Friday – Sundays can only be booked a maximum of 4 months in advance.
400 per hour
Add on additional hours to the base package if you need. Boom! As easy as that.
Fine art album
50 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!
What is the next step?
Just email me back and we’ll take it from there!
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!
