Who am I?
NOT YOUR AVERAGE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
It’s important that you find a photographer who’s work you love, but it’s just as important to find someone who brings out the BEST in you! I am here for the non traditional AF, the unique, and the “weird” human beings. For the souls that love wildly, do life differently, and want to have a DAMN GOOD TIME and do EPIC stuff on their wedding day. If you enjoy bad jokes, borderline disturbing humour, breaking the rules of wedding photography (aka no boring shit), I am YO GIRL.
"TO ME, CONNECTION IS EVERYTHING"
Without connection, well.. there isn’t much! I pride myself on building genuine connection with the couples I work with. I don’t just see what I do as a job, or a pay check, and I don’t just see you as a client. I see you as a friend, and when the big day is here, I get to celebrate with you and ensure you have the time of your life.
I have an adventurous spirit, and a heart for capturing all of the beautiful, authentic moments you won’t even realize are happening. I absolutely LOVE working with couples that share this adventurous spirit and desire to create something beautiful that will last a lifetime. Your wedding is your story. It’s beautiful, its messy, it’s seriously unique, and I’m wild about capturing every part of it.
FEEL LIKE YOU’RE VIBIN WITH ME?
ARE YOU LGBTQI FRIENDLY AND ACCEPTING OF ALL CULTURES?
YES YES YES ABSOLUTELY. I have a love for people from all walks of life. I am accepting of LGBQTI folks, all cultures, religions etc. I do NOT discriminate. <3
DO YOU HAVE AN ABN?
I sure do! My ABN is 63 649 829 871. I am a legal, registered, tax paying business.
DO YOU HAVE INSURANCE?
Yes I absolutely do! I hold both public liability and photographic equipment insurance. So this means that you can rest assured knowing that I am completely covered for any emergencies. If you would like to see a copy of my certificate of currency, feel free to ask!
WHAT BACKUP SYSTEMS DO YOU HAVE IN PLACE?
This is a great question, and one I get asked super frequently. I take my work EXTREMELY seriously, and I will always take as many precautions as possible to ensure that I am protecting your memories as best as I can.
Firstly, all cards are formatted prior to EVERY wedding. This is a crucial part of the process that all professional photographers should be doing prior to using a CF or SD card. On the day, I shoot on multiple CF and SD cards. This means that all of the images I take are spread throughout 8-10 cards on average for full day coverage.
I also have a DSLR which has dual card slots, so this automatically writes a backup to a secondary card whilst I shoot on the main one. When I arrive home from a wedding, I immediately back up ALL of the images onto my main hard drive. I also have 2 additional hard drives that I use as a back up for my main hard drive. ALL images are backed up onto all 3 ON THE NIGHT of the wedding. This usually means I am up until 3-4am waiting for this to finish.
As well as this, I have a backup cloud system that syncs with my computer, as well as 2 further additional cloud based systems for galleries in progress, and finished galleries that have been delivered to couples. I have never had an issue to date, and with my processes being so thorough this would be a highly unlikely situation.
DO YOU TRAVEL?
I LOVE destination weddings! I'm happy to create custom packages to fit your wedding plans. Travel and accommodation fees are included in destination packages, so you won't have to worry about a thing!
DO YOU GIVE OUT RAW FILES?
Just as a chef would not give out raw food, I do not give out RAW files.
I take a lot of pride in my work, and outtakes are outtakes for a reason (someone blinked, blurred image, someone walked in front of my camera etc). I spend a lot of time hand editing images individually until they are perfect,. So to answer this question, the only version you will get of my work, is the finished one. :)
WHAT HAPPENS IF WE CANCEL?
Unfortunately, this means your non refundable retainer/booking fee will be forfeited. In the event of death or severe illness, I will offer a credit to the value of your retainer/booking fee.
WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU CANCEL?
This is an extremely rare situation, and still has not happened to me to this day. I take my work extremely seriously, and unless I am dead, dying, or an extreme unforeseen situation presents itself, I will be photographing your wedding.
In a situation where I am unable to physically attend due to any of these highly unlikely scenarios, one of my backup photographers will photograph the wedding, I will still edit the images and deliver the final gallery to you.
I'M READY TO BOOK! WHAT NEXT?!
AMAZING! I can't wait to get to know you and I'm so thrilled you've chosen me. To book, I require a signed booking contract and a non refundable booking fee deducted from your total package cost. Dates cannot be reserved until both of these have been received. Contact me today and I'll send you all the info.
Let’s create something beautiful
You deserve to be left with the most incredible memories of your big day, I’d love to catch up for a coffee (or wine if that’s your thang!) and see if we’re a good fit.
