We can imagine you have a million questions running around in your head, so we have put together a list of the things we are commonly asked to assist. Should you wish to ask us something that is not covered here or have enquiries about our family shoot services and portrait photography, please shoot us a message on the Contact Page or give us a call.
How do you describe your style of photography?
Everyone seems to be throwing around the terms ‘journalistic’ and ‘documentary-style’ these days. We like to just capture things as we see them. We steer clear of the unnatural posed approach and prefer to just document you as you are and as things unfold. We find this then leaves you with a story rather than a couple of photos where you look a little awkward or aren’t being yourselves.
Where are you based?
Peta is originally from sunny Queensland and Matt from the Geelong area – these days we rest somewhere in between in the inner Melbourne area of Brunswick East.
Do you travel to other destinations?
Do we travel? We LOVE to travel! Whether it be locally, interstate or international, we are more than happy to come to you or your event. All we require is for you to cover airfare, accommodation and transport (a hire car). We don’t charge anything different for different locations as long as these things are covered off.
What do you charge?
Our wedding packages start at $3250 and portraits and family session rates are quoted based on the time frame and other requirements you may need. Please get in touch with us to discuss what you are after in more detail.
Will you hold a date while we decide?
We are unable to hold a date unless the 25% deposit has been paid. Our services are provided on a first come, first serve basis and we may have bookings a year in advance.
Do you both photograph the wedding?
Yes, both of us photograph the day/night, only separating for the preparation photography.
Aside from that, we do not split up or shoot separately throughout the day.
How much time do we need for the bridal portraits?
In an ideal world, 60-90mins is a preferred amount of time (please remember to accommodate for travel time)
Do you shoot with film or digital cameras?
We shoot with Canon digital.
Do you provide album design and printing services?
We create an individually designed album to document the story of your wedding day. We can include an album as part of your package and can also create a parent album if required. This can be discussed in greater details with you at the initial consultation.
How many photos do we get?
You will receive between 600 – 700 images from the day.
Do you retouch the photos that we receive?
Our work is given overall tonal adjustments and some are converted to black & white. We do not do digital effects that are not considered ’darkroom techniques’, for example removing objects, making people thinner, smoothing skin etc.
Do you include prints as part of the package?
Not by default however prints can be requested for an additional fee. Please discuss with us and we shall give you our pricing.
Do you do engagement photography?
Yes we do and we recommend this as it is a way for you to become comfortable with us and our style. A wedding day is a long day and the more comfortable you are with our presence the better the photographs will be.
How do we book you?
Get in touch and we’ll organise a time to meet up or chat on the phone. Then, if you wish to get the ball rolling we will organise the formalities such as a contract and invoice. Once the 25 percent retainer is paid and the contract is signed your date/booking is confirmed.
Should we provide you with a meal at the reception?
A meal is required for both photographers in attendance.
How long before we get our photos from the wedding?
The turnaround time is approximately four to six weeks.
Will we be able to view the photographs online?
Because we know you’ll be anxious to see them, we shall provide a slideshow of images in an online gallery for you to share with family and friends.
