Questions and Answers

Why aren't you as expensive as everyone else?

SMC Studios

The questions we are most often asked is ”why don’t you charge more?” Simply, we are not a one-man-band, so we don’t have to make as much money on a single wedding because we do weddings in every state across the country, every week. We have trained and developed local artists to a point where their work speaks for itself. This results in consistency, great products and even better service for everyone!  It also means that we can pass on huge savings to you. Check out our photo & video portfolio and decide for yourself!

What deposit do you require to book?

SMC Studios

Booking is simple and inexpensive. All we require from you to secure your date is a $300 deposit. Once this is cleared in our account (either credit card or direct transfer is ok) we lock the date in our calendar – and you are booked with a price and inclusions guarantee.

When do we make payments?

SMC Studios

Payment is broken into 3 parts: PAYMENT 1: deposit $300 or 10%, whichever is more; PAYMENT 2: further 70% just prior to wedding day; PAYMENT 3: 20% – straight after wedding (editing will commence once final payment is received)

When do we need to book & will you hold our date?

SMC Studios

We always recommend our couples do their homework. It’s an important decision selecting your wedding photographer/videographer. There are so many variables – style of work, package inclusions, price, turnaround times etc. After doing your research, if you decide we are your choice – contact us straight away and get a deposit down. Many couples will book us after one phone call or email – so the longer you leave it the more likely you are to miss out.

How long before my DVD and photos are ready?

SMC Studios

The all important question – how long after the wedding till we get our photos/video? The good news for you is that SMC Studios has a full sized editing team – complete with video editors, photo retouchers and album designers. We generally take 4-8 weeks to have proofs for your photos and 10-12 weeks for your video. On rare occasions things get out of hand and things can take a bit longer – but in most cases these estimates are spot on the money!

We got our photos and videos back and my word! We are so in love! The team were able to capture our day perfectly! The highlights video is a huge talking point and gets everyone crying. I’m a big photo person and was so happy with the quality. Ane our photographer was able to work with people and a dog who hates being in front of the camera and made us look natural and beautiful. And I don’t even remember seeing the videographer- he was like a ninja. Got all the great stuff. Honestly- for the price, I’m so happy and shocked with how affordable it was and the amazing products we got!

SMC were great throughout the whole process. From booking, to filling out forms, answering emails with questions, pre wedding questionnaire and execution on the day. We obtained a great package that was flexible as we preferred more hours of video. We also paid a little extra for a drone option. On the day, the photographer and videographer were both great. I gave direct instructions, for them to be assertive and tell us what needed to be done as we had tight timeframes for photography. We were very trusting in our requirements, letting the professionals lead the way and we couldn't be more pleased. Their package is worth investing in.

SMC were really great to work with and was great for our budget. I'd recommend

We got a great package with SMC Studios which included the photographer and videographer for 8 hours as well as our photobook, 10 enlargements, two brag books for our parents and thank you cards. Emily was our photographer and she was so fun to hang out with on the day, she was warm, friendly and professional and listened to all the suggestions I had wanted for poses as well as of course guiding us to get some great shots. Our photos are beautiful and we can't wait to see our video, Thanks to Emily and the team!

Swift Studios the sister company provided videography services for my wedding and I can’t wait to see the finished result! Our videographer followed the lead of our photographer and was always there for our special moments!

We have had nothing but great experiences with SMC. While it's still early days and we're yet to receive our wedding photos and video (the wedding was only a week ago!), I can say based on our engagement shoot that we have absolute confidence that Angie's shots will come out great! Angie (photographer) and Patrick (videographer) were great at keeping our wedding party relaxed even though everyone got hit by nerves as soon as they pulled up. I would 100% recommend these guys, they absolutely know what they are doing.

SMC did our photos and video. Pre photos prior to the ceremony were the highlight.

Richard and Emily were great to deal with. They made us feel comfortable with the whole process and it certainly didn't feel like the shots were staged. Communication from the time we booked has been fantastic and we'd highly recommend SMC Studios to everyone.

Michaela through SMC was amazing, she made us feel so comfortable during all the shoots but also managed to capture some truly candid moments between us and our guests. She was bubbly and happy and her execution of photos was amazing! The handover of photos is in the process of happening but seems to be easy.

John was always nearby to capture our moments on film. We are still awaiting the video but we are confident it will be amazing!

Amazing team who made us feel very comfortable and captured the most amazing photos of our beach wedding aswell as an incredible video we will cherish for years to come.

SMC Studios had a combined package with the Videography and this made our planning very easy as it was only one company that we had to correspond to. The staff were friendly and so patient. They took their time to ensure our needs were met and up to the high standards. They provided us advice on where we could have the best photos. They were all very enthusiastic and kept our expectations.

SMC studios had a combined package with Photography at a reasonable price. They ensured our needs were met and they were friendly and patient.

26 Oct 2019

We were very pleased with the efforts of Richard and Emily on our wedding day and were happy to follow their guidance and expertise. We had one face to face meeting, 30 minutes or so, very early to discuss broadly our plans for the day. We then had multiple email and phone follow ups to ensure our event planning was reasonable, timely etc. Richard and Emily were studious in photography and filming throughout our reception and I really look forward to seeing what moments they were able to capture. Overall very happy.
