Wedding Photography and Wedding Video FAQ
Wedding photography can be a confusing thing and there might be some questions you may want to know about our wedding photography services. Check out our Wedding Photography FAQ for answers to your common questions and we regularly update these questions so please sure to check it out.
Q. I dont like any of the wedding packages you have. Can I customise my own package?
A. Our wedding packages have been designed to give our clients an idea of the options available to suit their specific needs and budgets. We are also happy to create a custom package to suit your specific needs.
Q. How much notice do I have to give you to book your services for my wedding?
A. Generally we would like 2-3 months notice prior to your wedding date, as most weddings are held on weekends, and our services may already be booked out in advance. However, call us or send us an email if your wedding is sooner, because we may have availabilities!
Q. How do I book your service? What is involved?
A. Booking our service is very easy. You can contact us via phone or email to arrange a free pre-wedding consultation, our place or yours. The pre-wedding consultation allows us to better understand your photography needs and customise a wedding package for you, should you decide not to chose our standard wedding packages. To secure our services, all you need to do is to pay an agreed deposit amount. The remaining balance can be paid any time prior to the wedding itself.
Q. How long do I have to wait to receive my photos?
A. After your wedding day, we will sit through and sort out the photos taken on the day. We will then contact you for a post-wedding consultation to view, select and arrange the photos. We will then process the photos after this post-consultation process. This may take up to 4 – 6 weeks depending on the number of weddings we have booked. The final results will then be provided in a proof book for the couple as a keepsake. This is the final opportunity for any last-minute changes. The digital negatives are sent to the printers to make your hand-made wedding album. A DVD of all the photos on the day will also be sent or hand-delivered to you. The printing and production of your wedding album may take up to 4 weeks.
Q. Can my wedding guest also take photos on the day?
A. Yes, all guest are encouraged to take their own photos of your special day.
Q. Do you travel outside of the Sydney area ?
A. Yes, we are able to travel outside of the Sydney area for your wedding day. Please provide as much notice as possible, so that we can make the necessary travel arrangements.
Q. How many photos do you typically take on the day and is there a limit on the number of photos you will take ?
A. Depending on the wedding package chosen and the number of hours of coverage, we typically take 1000-2,500 photos for each wedding. However there is no limit to the number of photos we take, and should you have very specific shots you would like of your special day, be sure to let our photographers know.
Q. What camera equipment do you use?
A. We use the latest professional grade camera equipment from Canon Inc. We shoot in digital to allow us to process the photos quicker and provide digital previews to our customers much faster.
Q. Do we have to feed you ?
A. If the wedding package chosen is a full day package and to ensure we dont pass out from hunger and miss out on all those special moments that should be captured, a light meal for our photographers would be greatly appreciated
Q. How much time should we allocate in our schedule for wedding shoots on location ?
A. The time required will depend on the number of locations and themes. If we are only shooting at the wedding venue, allow 1-2 hours, but if travel between locations is required, 2-3 hours should be allocated.
Q. When is the best time to do outdoor wedding or portrait photography?
A. The best time of the day to do outdoor photography is in the early morning or around sunset, as the light during these times is soft and flattering. Photoshoots around midday are not always ideal due to the harsh sunlight which may cause you to squint, and can also cast unpleasant shadows over your face.
