Questions and Answers

How far in advance should I book my wedding photographer?

Jennifer Dean Photography

Like me, many photographers work independently as sole traders. For this reason, it is very important once you have decided on the photographer that suits your taste, style and budget, to book as soon as possible. As sole traders, photographers like myself can and will only book one wedding per date. If you are planning your wedding event to occur during the busy wedding season and/or on the most popular day's (such as a Friday or Saturday) then it is even more crucial to book your photographer sooner rather than later; it would be a shame to miss out on your first choice photographer! In my experience, most couples book between 6 to 12 months ahead of their wedding date. While I have booked a handful of last minute couples approximately 3 months prior to their wedding date, these were successfully booked due to the couples' choice of less popular day's such as mid week weddings and many were also out of wedding season (such as winter).

I am only looking for a short duration booking. Is this something you can accommodate?

Jennifer Dean Photography

Certainly! The Sunshine Coast and Queensland locations are increasingly popular for destination weddings and elopements. For this reason my minimum booking is for 3 hours regardless of wedding day or season.

Do I have to purchase a wedding album from you?

Jennifer Dean Photography

Not at all. While I do offer a variety of wedding albums as an additional purchase, you are certainly not obligated to book your wedding album with me. I'm also not a fan of 'the hard sell', so unless you specifically are seeking an album and make a request for information about them from me, my conversations with you will be simply about your wedding day and how my photography style will work within your vision :-) 

Do you offer discounts?

Jennifer Dean Photography

In my opinion developed from client feedback over a number of years, my prices are fair, reasonable and competitive. So to discount them further would really be only something I might do if I had a last minute date/s to fill. I don't charge clients based on the number of attending guests or the wedding location. My prices are based soley on my time spent working on your event. This includes pre wedding day planning and communications, your photography on your actual wedding day itself and finally the time spent working on your images after your event in post production.   

Will you share my photographs on social media?

Jennifer Dean Photography

I understand there is a trend in the wedding industry to share client images on social media immediately after the event. By immediate I mean up to two weeks post wedding. While I understand this is an important part of marketing one's skills and business, I personally do not share my wedding clients' photographs on social media until sometimes a couple of months post wedding. The reason for this is that I understand the importance of my client's privacy and I take this very seriously. In my opinion, couples should have a say in which images from their day are made public... and when. Often, photographers will be looking at a photograph in a totally different way to a bride and groom. We are looking at the image for it's creative and artistic merit- how it represents our skills as photographers. Hence we seek to share images that illustrate that skill. Whereas a couple will instead be understandably looking at the same image to see how it represents them physically; does the bride like her facial expression and her figure in the image, does the groom like how he is portrayed? After 20+ years working in weddings, I have come to accept that couples will often favour photographs that are completely different to the ones I favour from their wedding. This is because we are looking at them through different eyes with different perspectives and for different purposes. So for this reason, while I would love to share photographs quickly to show off my skills from recent weddings, I prefer to wait until after my couples have received their wedding photographs and voiced their opinion of images I show them for their approval to be shared online on a later date.

Our wedding photographs are so beautiful. Jennifer captured us and our guest’s unaware meaning we got photographs showing real emotions. It was hard to choose pictures for our album because they were all so perfect! We chose lots of sepia tones for our album to match our vintage-theme.

Thank you Emma :-D Your wedding was so joyful; it was truly an honour to play a part in your beautiful wedding story! Totally a team effort; your guests were wonderful to work with! I'm so glad you chose to include lots of sepia toned images for your album it truly looks amazing! I've had quite a few clients opting for sepia prints since showing them yours ;-) Looking forward to working with you again on your preggy portraits! Xx

Jennifer photographed my sister's wedding in 2014 and one of her work colleagues the year before, so choosing her as our photographer was easy! Jennifer is joyful and calm to work with. Our beautiful wedding photographs reflect the natural style she promotes, and no silly posing! We highly recommend Jennifer!!!
