First and foremost – Congratulations on this exciting new chapter in your lives and welcome to my site. I am a Central Coast and Hunter Valley Wedding Photographer, also servicing Newcastle and surrounding areas. No doubt you’re noticing that wedding planning can be fun but also overwhelming and to keep it simple for you, I offer two packages. After years of shooting weddings, I find these options suit the majority of couples, however if you’re having an elopement or something short and sweet, please get in touch for a tailored quote. My average turnaround time for receiving your images is two weeks and for this reason I take on a limited number of weddings per year so all my couples receive the same fast turnaround.
My most popular package is coverage from the preparations till a little after the first dance which is generally the last formality – I cap this at 10 hours – heaps!
I also offer a 6 hour package – This is generally for couples who aren’t too fussed about the ‘getting ready’ stuff prior to the ceremony. I will start half hour before the ceremony, so I’m prepared and ready for the bride or groom to walk down the aisle. This amount of coverage will generally take you till the first dance if you’re having one.
So what do you get?
An experienced photographer who loves what she does, is super friendly, will chat with your guests, know the names of your parents and your bridal party. I give a 110% at every wedding. I get excited by loved up couples, fun bridal parties, awesome light and capturing authentic emotive moments. I’m a big softy and love a heartfelt speech, capturing the look on faces of proud parents and grandparents. I shoot all these moments on my two professional camera’s and top of the line lenses. Whilst you want the natural photos, I’ll definitely give you direction when you need it. I’ll fade into the background during the ceremony getting heaps of angles and you won’t even know I’m there. I’m easy going and even the couples who were a little nervous about being in front of the camera tell me how easy it was and how comfortable they felt.
You will see a sneak peak of your wedding photos on my Facebook page – sometimes that night or the next day. You’ll have a slideshow to share within a few days.
Your images have been carefully edited by me – natural colours and skin tones is my style. I’ll use natural light to my full advantage but also don’t mind whipping out a bit of off camera flash for effect. If you want the hipster look, desaturated greens and blue skies turned white, grainy images with a filter applied to each one – I’m not the girl for you. I want you to look back on your images in years to come and remember the amazing colours you chose for your day – I’m not going to take that away with ‘trendy’ filters. I’ll enhance your images without making them look fake. I put them on a USB in high resolution (which means they are the best print quality), and I’ll also supply you with the low resolution so you can easily upload them to your social media if you wish.
You can have the digital files only or you can add on an album – your choice. I’ll give you all the great images of the day – you are not restricted to specific number of images. You know my prices up front and there are no hidden extras.
How do you book in?
So you’ve contacted me and we’ve established I’m available for your wedding – yay! You like the fact that I offer awesome photography and that you don’t need to sell a kidney to pay for my services. Perhaps I’ve come in under your photography budget and you can use that money towards something else. Great News! So here is my booking procedure:
I’ll send you an invoice and my Terms and Conditions at the same time. You pay your $400 deposit by direct deposit. Once paid I’ll apply it to your invoice and email it back to you so you know your balance.
YOUR DATE IS BOOKED! EASY!
The balance is due 2 weeks prior to the wedding.
Of course you can book in a time if you would like to meet with me first and check out my images in print before deciding on booking. I work from a studio at my home and have plenty of display albums. If meeting isn’t really an option – you might not be from the area – a simple phone call to get to know each other goes a long way too.
I can help you out with referrals to other wonderful local suppliers if you need.
After the day
So your wedding was amazing and everything you dreamed it would be and you’re busting to see some photos and trust me I’m busting to show you too! As mentioned above – I’ll pop some on my Facebook page and get cracking making a beautiful slideshow for you. I’ll send you a message when it’s about to go live on my website and you may shed a tear or two and have a laugh as you relive the day. If you’re going straight on your honeymoon – I’ll have your images ready on your return.
If you included one of my stunning albums – I’ll soon start on the design. We will work together to get the album exactly how you love it. My user-friendly design software makes it so easy for you to give instructions for changes and it’s all done over email.
So that’s it! A cool calm collected photographer for your day who offers awesome images that won’t break your budget. Sound good? Then click the button below and head over to my contact page, fill in the fields and I’ll send you my prices.
