FAQ

We love this question as it gives us a bit of a laugh. We answer this quite differently to how most other photographers seem to answer. We have such a vast amount of experience in our craft that we can shoot and edit in a wide variety of styles. We don't promote a particular style as everyone wants something different. 

What we will say is that it's our job to ensure you are comfortable and relaxed on the day. We take our role very seriously but we want to make it as enjoyable and fun as possible so there will be a lot of laughter, jokes, fun and banter on the day when you choose our team. We can shoot both candid and posed photos. Lastly we want to give you what you want - it's your wedding day and not ours...

Yes of course you can. Because of the size, experience and talent of our team members we can provide a unique and tailored solution that will be the perfect match to your vision for your wedding day.

See our packages and look at the "Personalised Creations" option to see some of the ideas of what you may want included for your wedding day.

Yes we do. These are automatically included in all of our packages except our "Intimate Secrets" (Luxury Elopement Pavckage". This can also be provided as an add-on to a customised package.

This is one of my (AJ's) pet peeves! It has aways baffled me about our industry that the majority of photographers want to be fed (and I have heard some horror stories when they haven't been of what they have done in retailisation). 

I personally don't like the idea of you having to feed me, let alone our entire team! You're already paying a substantial amount of money to us to deliver an exquisite visual package of photos and/or videos. Having to cater for us on top of that seems like quite an entitled demand and that is not what we are about.

So to answer the question - absolutely not. We will look after ourselves on the day and will ensure our team has all the food and drink they need. As a side note none of our staff are permitted to drink alcohol, vape or smoke while working.  

Our philosophy is to hope for the best and plan for the worst. It's impossible for us to control the weather (it would be an amazing superpower to have for a photographer), so forward planning is crucial. Having a plan B, C, D, E, F, and G is always a great idea and we will discuss with you this in more detail during the pre-consultation.

Obviously in cases of extreme weather it's not something that is easy to plan for. Thankfully there are so many beautiful photos that can be taken indoors and we have tonnes of ideas (not to mention shooting in the rain if that is a possibility). We definitely would rule out some things such as aerial photography/videography in some weather conditions but there is a lot we can still do otherwise in most cases.

Lastly, we also have a number of props that we can utilise for rainy conditions such as see-through umbrellas which can add a lovely touch to your beutiful day.

Yes we can. In fact here is a little secret - the majority of people are. You are not alone. Again this is why it's so important for us to build a connection with you and to assist you to relax and enjoy the day. We won't try and force you to smile and laugh for every photo and we won't place you into a bunch of poses if that is not your thing.

Candid photos are quite trendy at the moment and often show the raw emotions better than any staged or posed photos. As storytellers, candid photography is right up our alley. So don't worry, we've done this before and will guide you throughout the day.

Yes we provide you with the option of presenting ideas for prints and albums when we present your photos and videos to you. This is something we will ask you about in your consultation.

We find that it's best to keep discussions around albums and prints separate as it can get a bit overwhelming thinking about this prior to the wedding let's face it - there is enough for you to think about right now). If you do want to look at ideas we can then give you some examples of what they can look like with your photos too
