Yes, you get a password protected web gallery from which to view and download your web ready and hi-res image files from - quick and easy!

You just need to fill out a booking form and send it to me and pay the $1540 booking fee to secure the date.

This fee will be towards your balance (balance payable 4 weeks prior to your wedding).

Sorry, but I'm generally not able to hold a date without the booking fee - my services are offered on a first come first served basis and once the date is secured I will be turning away other enquiries for that particular date.

The turnaround time is around 3 to 5 weeks depending on whether during the busy months or not. You can see them either in my studio or in a password protected online gallery. We discuss this during one of our consultations.

Alan was fantastic, we love our photos! He made the whole day fun and even my husband enjoyed the photoshoot. My only complaint is that all of the photos are so good we are having a hard time picking out our favourites!

Alan was amazing! If you are after a professional, friendly and talented photographer then get in touch with Alan! We were after a relaxed, candid style and he delivered the most beautiful images (even though the weather was overcast and moody). We cannot recommend him highly enough.

How do I ask my photographer for a partial refund if she was late on the day of the wedding?

Alan Hughes Photography

That depends on how late she was and what she missed really.

There's 10 minutes late and then there's missing the start of a ceremony. I always (without fail) arrive early and then I'm not stressed and haven't caused any stress to the bride and groom.
If the photographer charged by the hour then that is pretty straight forward - if they missed a crucial part (ceremony) then it's more complicated.

If your photographer is professional (and nice - which is why you booked them in the first place) they should approach you first to make reparation by some sort of compensation either by way of money back or more likely a gift of some sort ie free print / canvas, pages in an album etc.

how much is a good wedding photographer in brisbane?

I've been quoted cheap prices (1500) and expensive prices (5500). does it mean the photographer is better if their price is higher?

Alan Hughes Photography

Pretty much - yes! A combination of all or most the following IMO - better photography, more experienced (can handle different situations, lighting etc), better equipment (and yes I know that doesn't make them a better photographer - but there is a good reason why we buy the best equipment), more reliable / dependable, more professional.

For me I'd get a feel for their work, their professionalism along with whether the venue / celebrant / florist etc knows them and can vouch for not only their work but the person too.
