Questions and Answers

What areas do you work in?

Melisa Savickas Photographer

I work all over Melbourne and beyond, so if your wedding is based in a location outside of the CBD or Melbourne Metropolitan area, I can certainly help you.  If you list the locations and names of venues during our conversations, it makes it easier to get a clear picture of what your requirements are, and help in planning the photography times. 

How do I decide on the length of time to have you on the day?

Melisa Savickas Photographer

A few examples of factors that affect your final investment:

  1. Hours required for photography on the day - The locations of your wedding events can extend your length of time significantly. If your preparation is at home in the suburbs, ceremony is in the CBD and reception by the beach, this lengthens the time required for the day. The best thing you can do to save expenses is plan your wedding in a way that is the most efficient in the use of time. If your budget is flexible, you can always propose your dream wedding photography plan to me and obtain a quote for the maximum time you imagine you need, and cut it back if needed later. 
  2. Final number of photographs  - There is a significant length of time spent creating beautiful photographs from the images recorded on the day. The time taken rises with the number of final photographs required. The length of time your wedding is photographed on the day will add to the time taken to examinine the entire catalogue of images taken, selecting the best photographs and editing images. I automatically remove images that show people with closed eyes, awkward expressions and so on, leaving the rest of the images for final selection. The best thing you can do is have an approximate final number of edited images in mind when discussing the photography with me. 
  3. Amount of editing required - Removing unwanted elements all affects editing time. The best thing you can do is be careful with your appearance (wear false eyelashes if you want that look, rather than have them created later) and your wedding party's clothing. If your bridesmaids need to eat lunch after dressing, but before the ceremony, make sure you cover your clothing to protect it from spills and stains. Also, if you want your group photographs to have all guests present, let them know when you are planning the group photo to occur, so everyone is aware and ready. Whilst it is possible to add guests in later, it is always better to have everyone there in the first place.

What is your editing process?

Melisa Savickas Photographer

I take more images than needed, so I can select the best expressions and nuances for your collection of photographs.

My processing begins with close inspection for your best expressions, poses and content. Next, there is cropping, colour adjustments, minor editing of blemishes and where possible, individual adjustments in images to bring out details and give the image something a little special. The process of perfecting your images takes around twice as long as your wedding shoot takes, as I am meticulous in my editing and will only give you the best quality work.

What can we expect from you?

Melisa Savickas Photographer

Long before your wedding, we will discuss your personal taste, specific needs and the plan of your day, so we all understand how to achieve the best results. Rest assured, you will have everything worked out with me beforehand, and have a plan for inclement weather too.

What do your packages include?

Melisa Savickas Photographer

My wedding packages include professional prints and digital files in JPEG format. I also offer artworks for your wall, of your favorite images. If you have a particular package in mind, let me know and I will quote for exactly what you need!

We chose Melisa for our wedding photographer because we were on the same page from the get go. She was so amazing and all of our guests raved about her. The photographs more than capture our special day and we are so pleased we have these special memories to last our lifetime.

Melisa did a fantastic job photographing our wedding at RACV City Club. She was a delight to work with, very easy going and professional and was wonderful in organising 65 guests for 2 amazing group photos! She also organised the photos and printing of our “thank you cards” which were loved by our guests. I highly recommend Melisa as a photographer for her creativity, and ability to capture the special moments of your day.

Melisa Savickas Photographer  

Thanks so much for your kind words, Lisa. I really enjoyed photographing you and Scott and capturing you in all sorts of interesting places at the RACV City Club like the rooftop, behind the piano, on the staircase with the kookaburra icon and near the glorious artworks in their collection. You and Scott were wonderful to work with and I wish you all the very best in your life together.

Melisa was an absolute pleasure to work with. She was very accessible, reliable, approachable and easy to communicate with. She did a very good job on the day getting the crowd together for a group photo and directed us well with our couple shots. Our pictures are absolutely stunning and we could not be happier with the end product. I highly recommend Melisa and she is great value for money.

Mel was a great photographer who captured our day perfectly. She was professional and went the extra mile to get the perfect shots for us. She even managed to wrangle our toddler for some great photos.

Thanks so much, Kate. I was very lucky to photograph your special day and help you and Elisa celebrate your relationship's new status as a married couple! You were my first female couple that I was able to photograph at their wedding, and I will always remember you fondly.

Highly recommended ! Melisa was fantastic on our day and she listened to what we wanted. We are really happy with our photos! We will get the photos digitally and will be getting some prints also.

Melisa Savickas Photographer  

Thank you so much Liana. Your wedding at Farm Vigano was just lovely, with the sun setting over the gardens. I really enjoyed creating some special lighting for your stairway portraits at night, and the vintage car imagery too. Wishing you and your little family a wonderful year ahead and many years of wedded bliss!

24 Feb 2018

Melisa was very flexible and professional and very open to suggestions and was easy to work with. We wanted candid photos and Melisa delivered this. We got all our photos on an online platform and work out which ones to print! We have so many fabulous photos to choose from!

Melisa Savickas Photographer  

Thank you for your lovely words, Amy. I really enjoyed your wedding and loved taking photographs in your favorite locations, like the infamous AC/DC lane with the interesting graffiti, the park overlooking the MCG and alongside the Yarra River, near your Reception location. I wish you both many years of happiness and wonderful married life!

25 Nov 2017

She was really easy to get along with and had a really relaxed approach on the day. We were really happy with the photos when we received them too!

Melisa Savickas Photographer  

Thanks Megan, your Red Hill winery wedding was lovely and the dramatic skies just added to the beauty of the day. Wishing you and Alan a wonderful life together!

25 Nov 2017

Awesome lady - so happy with her work. We wanted to go outside the box a little, and she was incredibly accommodating - and truly a lovely person to boot. Photos were beautiful - my fam called her the Ninja photographer cos she was slipping in & out of view, lying on the ground, up a ladder.....quite funny. But it was worth it - she got great results, and we loved having her with us on our day. (Very affordable too!!)

Melisa Savickas Photographer  

Thanks for your lovely and amusing words, Alan! Yes, I do tend to find myself in all sorts of interesting spots to get the shot I want, so I'm glad you saw the results were appreciated. Hope you both have a wonderful, long and happy union as you sure glow together!
