I am uniquely different ...
I live in the heart of wedding country, the beautiful Central / Gold Coast and have worked most of the major venues. Myself plus a second shooter/assistant will work together to capture your big day. With over 250 weddings of experience I'm well prepared to handle any situation or request.
For me it's about quality not quantity. I love to use my artistic skills and technical abilities to create beautiful pictures of the wedding couple. Yes Capturing all the important shots of the day will take place but for me it's first and foremost about the bride and groom, everything else is secondary.
Here are a few tips that should help you on your big day. Very seldom does a wedding/reception go on schedule. Having a professional wedding coordinator helps but frequently there are still unforeseen delays. Most couples place a time frame for pictures of just the two of them, typically this is after all the family/wedding party shots are completed and just before your grand entrance. If the schedule does not stay on-time where do you make up the lost time? Historically the task is placed on the photographer to make up the time. Frequently this can abbreviate the time you have set aside to make beautiful pictures of just the two of you.
A perfectly planned photo day, IMO, should start from the time you slip into your dress until the last major reception event takes place plus a bit of open dancing. First looks are great and allow plenty of time for many of the traditional pictures to be completed prior to the ceremony. First looks create another opportunity/time for beautiful pictures to be taken of the wedding couple.
Large family group photos can be taken just after the ceremony along with other group photos of the bridal party. If a first look is not incorporated make sure to leave sufficient time for just the two of you along with myself and my assistant to create stunning romantic pictures.
Another hint ... In today's world of quality cell phones many of the candid photos that come up during a wedding day can be captured nicely on a cell phone. However, no cell phone can reproduce what a high end camera/lens in the hands of a skilled wedding photographer can create. Another words there is no need for me to be taking pictures during much of the prep time or after the traditional reception events and sufficient candid photos of open dancing have been taken. There comes a time when it is best for photographers and/or videographers to exit and let your guest let their hair down and just party the evening away.
So back to where I started, I shoot for quality not quantity. Hire me to do what I do best, capturing beautiful imagines and knowing how to use high end cameras/lenses to best accomplish that. Everything else can be captured by a friend/family member who knows how to use a quality cell phone. My starting package allows sufficient time for most weddings/receptions. Need a bit more time or an engagement shoot ... contact me and we'll discuss your situation.
Hundreds of quality photos will be delivered to you. Over 50% of the pictures taken will be edited/enhance. Editing includes cropping, color correction, exposure correction and finally if needed some noise reduction. All edited pictures are then placed in a password protected gallery which is accessible for one year. You also receive a thumb drive of all edited pictures. I place no copyright or watermark on the pictures. From the hundreds of edited pictures you will have plenty to choose from for on-line use or creating a coffee table wedding book. Included in my basic package is the opportunity for up to 5 pictures to be further enhanced. Usually these are the pictures you will make large prints of for your personal enjoyment or to give to relatives.
