Questions and Answers

Why should I invest in professional photography?

Pause The Moment

Lots of reasons! Most importanty - our photography will make the rest of your wedding more glamorous. Your boquet, dress, cake, locations, not to mention the portraits... you want to remember all the crisp and stunning details in their best light in the dreamy context of your best day ever! Even articles about ways that couples overspend suggest that photography is the MAIN area you want to avoid cutting any corners! :) For an example of this wisdom see point 4 in this article: "These days, everyone with an iPhone will volunteer to do your wedding photos. Then there are the "fauxtographers," who think they're professionals just because they own a DSLR (that they operate on auto mode). While smartphones and point-and-shoot cameras have come a long way, you shouldn't let a non-professional handle this critical task. Photos are how you are going to remember the day for the rest of your life. If you spend money on one thing for your wedding day, let it be the photographer. Wedding photographers may look expensive at first glance, but it's important to pay enough to guarantee quality results. Too many married couples have tried to cut corners on photography, only to end up with wedding pictures they hate. Plus, if your mother or co-worker takes the job and you end up with a disappointing wedding album, you can't exactly ask for a re-do." 

Do you offer albums?

Pause The Moment

Yes, but it isn't our core business. We have a bit of a waiting list but can definitely help! Our model in this regard is a bit different to most other photographers. Rather than putting a massive markup on the products we can access through our industry accounts, we agree on a design service which is an upfront flat fee for several day's work. Then, in a proofing meeting with you, we can let you choose details like paper thickness, and cover type without any pressure as you just pay cost-price for what you really like... no upsell! 

Do you offer videography services / engagement photography / pre-wedding photography?

Pause The Moment

Yes, yes and yes!

You can see some of our videography work on or via our main website. 

Do we offer engagement / pre-wedding sessions? Absolutely! We love to have sessions with our clients before the big day and will offer a discounted rate if you book one at the same time as you book your wedding photography.

Full set of photos you say?

Pause The Moment

Yes, it takes us more time as we hand process and retouch images individually, but we know you want all the good images from your day! Unlike some studios we don't cap your delivery at a certain number of images or charge more if you have stacks and stacks of gorgeous photos. We can't help ourselves. Photography is our passion and we want you to be delighted by as many gorgeous images as we can give you! Don't worry, we filter out the double-ups, the ones that didn't work, the ones where people are making horrible faces and any we accidentally take of our feet haha. But you will recieve the full set of gorgeous images that you want... and we don't hold back! :) 

Ok I'm interested... what next?

Pause The Moment

The first step is to get in touch (phone/sms/email/Facebook... whatever works best for you) to make sure that we still have availibility on your wedding date. Fingers crossed! Then, 90% of the time we (Michelle & Ben) will schedule a face-to-face cafe meeting with you. This is usually at Carlucci's in Templestowe, but we can travel. A meeting allows us to show you a bit more of our folio and have a chat about your plans and aims for the big day, which is always good fun (and we will shout you your beverage of choice, too!). If this is difficult for you to organise for any reason we can arrange a phone meeting or even just discuss details in writing. Assuming all goes well, we will send you a quote via email which turns into an invoice when you hit 'accept'. From there, a 25% deposit locks your place in our calendar with the remaining 25% due a week before your wedding day. We share some images with you as soon as we can and deliver your *full set* of photos via a beautiful online gallery as well as a copy on physical media in the post. We can help with albums and high-quality great-value printing if you wish, but you are welcome to print and share photos however you like with any provider you like. End result: you are delighted!

Review this supplier

I love the photos we received from Ben and Michelle at Pause the Moment. They're fresh and spontaneous and capture the emotion and the energy of the night. Ben and Michelle were organised and reliable and their website is very user friendly. Would definitely recommend these guys.

Michelle is a fantastic photographer. Photos were taken with ease...and she made us laugh so the photos looked very natural even though we were trying to pose at the time.... Can't recommend her highly enough

15 Dec 2017

We hired "Pause the Moment" as our photography and videography package for the day. We were very happy with their service on the day. They thought of special and unique ways to capture a moment for our beautiful day. Michelle, Ben, Chelsea and Jesse were all really understanding, they all went above and beyond on the day.
