I love to travel, whether that be to the middle of the country or to the other side of the world. One of my favourite things is to be on the road! 

Travel costs are included if your wedding is within 2 hours of the Mornington Peninsula.

Small travel fees apply for interstate and international weddings.

Once you have decided which package you are after, all I require is a 40% deposit to secure your date and my services.

From there, I will send through my terms and conditions agreement which will require a signature.

8 months from your wedding day, I share with you my Wedding Photography Guide. In this detailed 18-page guide, I share with you my suggestions on how to get the most out of your wedding day photographs, sample timelines and a few tips/tricks etc.

1 month before your wedding day, I will touch base with your wedding day questionnaire which will help me gather some important information before the day and allow me to form your photography timeline. I will also be asking you to let me know the details of your vendors and your reception formalities.

Your remaining amount is due 14 days before your wedding day, you can also customise your package by adding on hours right up until the day before your wedding!

Of course! Within 3 days after my weddings, I love to share 20 images with my couples via an online gallery.

This will allow you to share them with family and friends alongside social media.

Within 6 weeks after your wedding date, your final gallery will be delivered.

Hayden was absolutely amazing. He was kind, caring and his attention to detail was beyond incredible. Hayden was a great mix between professional, friendly and easy going, and our sneak peak photos are absolutely breathtaking. Thankyou Hayden!

We love the photos Hayden was able to capture of our wedding and it was a pleasure to have Hayden with us. We spoke to a few photographers but from our first conversation with Hayden we knew he was going to be our first choice, as it was clear he was going to fit in well and be able to capture not only the important milestones of our wedding day but the natural moments and memories as well. Hayden's communication, flexibility and ability to adapt on the day made us feel comfortable and relaxed throughout and we really couldn't recommend Hayden enough.

We couldn't recommend Hayden more for any photography or film needs on your big day. He is calm, professional and friendly and was so accommodating for any changes we needed to make on the day. All of the photos were so beautiful and natural, exactly how I imagined them to be. He was able to use his experience and expertise to help guide us throughout the process, which we were so grateful for!
