Tell us about your wedding packages and inclusions.

I offer packages based on the time frame required and a lot are also custom packages. The 8 hour package is perfect for a larger wedding as it includes all the getting ready images, right through to the reception end. I also offer 6 and 4 hour packages and custom Intimate Wedding quotes for those couples who want a non traditional wedding with no guests or a really small affair. Albums are not routinely included for a couple of reasons - some couples don't want one, some couples like to do it around their first anniversary and some like to really settle in to their images before they design their album. Albums can be compiled at any time after a wedding - even years later. 

Here is what is included in the 8-hour package.

  • Gorgeous digital gallery and access to a professional print store with stunning products.
  • 25 Fine Art Prints in a leather wallet
  • Complimentory Engagement Session with Wedding Guest Book made from the images. 

'Its really important to me to capture all of the in between moments. They're the images that really stand out years down the track when you remember not just how much fun you were having, but also how you felt. The candid images are the really priceless images in my opinion."

Questions and Answers

What's your style?

Joanne Keighery Photography

I'm so glad you asked because it's really important to have a photographer who shares your vision for your day. My style is romantic, modern and fresh with a strong editorial focus. Editorial simply means what you'd expect to see in a magazine or print. I do lean to a more light and airy style rather than dark and moody. 

Will you be directing us all day?

Joanne Keighery Photography

No definitely not. I like to think of myself as a fairly quiet presence through your day, just here to provide some gentle guidance when necessary or to help you out. Approximately 90% of an 8 hour wedding is candid coverage. Think of it like having a journalist documenting your wedding.  In the getting ready portion, I busy myself capturing everything thats going on. We may do some pictures with bridesmaids and a few bridal portraits but I'm generally out of the way. I may suggest a nice well lit space to put on your dress. After the ceremony (or before in some cases), we'll head out and I will give some direction for portraits. I like to think I'll give you enough instruction to look natural but not so little you stand around wondering what to do with your hands. It might be something as simple as 'hey go for a walk, hold hands, talk to each other'. 

It is worth mentioning that some people like a little extra direction and help with 'posing', and feel more comfortable and confident in their images if they've been posed in a flattering way. If that is you, just let me know and that is also easily achieved. 

How does the editing work?

Joanne Keighery Photography

I edit all images carefully - in fact, I edit skin to look beautiful but still natural. Not only do i look out on the day for lipstick on teeth or any number of things, but we can have a chat about any temporary blemishes if they occur, so don't stress if you have a break out. I make sure all the colours you carefully chose for your day are accurately displayed. 

How many photos will we get?

Joanne Keighery Photography

You receive approximately 100 images per shooting hour. Obviously, this can change. For example, a wedding held completely at night may have less.  I give you as many as I can. 

What if it rains heavily?

Joanne Keighery Photography

No doubt this is tricky. I do check the weather the week of every wedding and we have a chat if its looking rainy. We can do some in the rain with an umbrella but I don't always think this is a great idea. You don't want to get your dress and shoes muddy and wet. We can do them indoors and this works great for beautiful venues. We could move portrait time to earlier in the day. I will present you with a rain plan if the forecast is not looking good. When all fails and you just want the dreamy portraits you envisoned, I have done reshoots before - thats where you put your dress back on, hubby dons the suit again, (or you two grooms get your suits on) you get hair and make up done again and we go out another time. I offer super reasonable rates for reshoots.
