Questions and Answers

Am I able to meet my photographer before the big day?

Match Made Photography

YES! In fact, I highly encourage it. Want to meet up for a chat over a coffee? Drinks at the local brewery? Count me in!

Or if we're logistically a bit too far away, we can always Facetime to "virtually" meet as well. (the internet is a beautiful thing)

Meeting your photographer is a great way of breaking the ice, and formally getting to know each other before your wedding day.

Are you available for my wedding?

Match Made Photography

The best way to find out is to contact myself either through Easy Weddings, or our contact page on our website. Fingers crossed that I am!

Are you available to travel?

Match Made Photography

Indeed I am! There's nothing I love more than photographing couples around the globe.

With Match Made Photography, the price that I give you is the price that you get -- travel fees included. 

We're not models -- will our photos turn out awesome?

Match Made Photography

Without a doubt, YES!

You would be shocked at how many couples tell me that they're nervous in front of the camera.

I'm not a super huge fan of trying to awkwardly pose people and instead try to capture the love and connection between each couple (in which case, if you're getting married you've got some of that going for you!).

I'll give you guys lots of guidance and prompting so you don't feel awkward (don't worry), but it won't feel awkward.

My fun, documentary-style approach in photography will lead to capturing more beautiful interactions with each other, and less prom/formal poses. This is my recipe for awesome photos!

How many hours of wedding coverage do we need?

Match Made Photography

My wedding packages are divided into three time frames. The shortest (6 hours) is great for weddings with shorter reception or those who don't feel the need for full coverage of the getting ready process all the way through to the end of the reception.

The middle (8 hours) is a sweet spot for a lot of weddings -- time for all the standard things (getting ready through reception).

The longest (10 hours) is really great for weddings with different locations, a longer reception, or a more relaxed timeline so that you don't feel rushed on your wedding day.

Cherrod photographed my wedding in 2018. I was feeling brave and decided I didn’t need a wedding coordinator, bad idea! Luckily for me, Cherrod is so experienced in weddings that she not only took the most amazing and BEAUTIFUL pictures ever, but she was also able to guide me through the entire day and night to keep me on track and hitting every important highlight. She has sneak peeks to me the next day, and captured things that I missed and/or forgot because what bride remembers the whole blurry day?! If we weren’t oceans apart during a world pandemic, I would be flying her in to do my newborn photography because she truly is amazing at candid and posed shots. Cherrod, thank you for capturing every little moment and detail of my wedding day to ensure I will never forget any of it!

Hi Jordan! Thank you so much for your sweet words. Your wedding is one that the Match Made Photography team will never forget. I also wish that we weren't locked down in a global pandemic because I would so love to be a part of your family milestone photos! One of my favourite things about connecting with my couples is being able to capture other big milestones in their lives such as newborn portraits and family photos as each new bundle of joy comes along. :) Lots of love from Brisbane, Australia -Cherrod

I love Cherrod's work! She does a fantastic job of understanding what her clients want and approaches each project individually. She is reliable, punctual, and goes out of her way to make sure she provides everything her clients could need. She took my husband and my engagement and wedding photos and they turned out beautifully. She was also incredibly emotionally supportive during the stress and chaos before the wedding and even helped me get into my wedding dress because there were unforeseen logistical challenges which resulted in my bridesmaids being unable to help me put on my dress and veil. She was respectful to our family and made everyone feel very comfortable. Her rates were incredibly reasonable and it was a lifesaver finding her because all the other wedding photographers in the area charged an arm and a leg. She worked with our wedding budget to help us get the

We hired Cherrod to take our engagement photos and we couldn't have been more pleased with our decision. Words cannot begin to describe how incredible her Photography is. Cherrod's expertise, attention to detail, and overall skill were second to none. We had a few ideas of what we wanted in mind, and Cherrod took the ideas we had and made them come to life and then some. She definitely did her research about the area and knew the perfect places to take us. We were more than pleased with the process and the end result. I truly mean it from the bottom of my heart when I say that if you need any sort of photos taken for an engagement shoot, wedding, event, or any possible situation you can think of, Cherrod is the way to go! Thanks for everything Cherrod! Love, The Friends

Hi Dina! We here from Match Made Photography just wanted to give you a big thank you for all of your kind words! Your wedding was a day to remember and I will never forget how well your custom-made wedding dress complimented Eddy's one-of-a-kind suit! You both were such a blast and what a FUN day it was.

I love her! Every little detail matters. She will pic up leaves and move them if they might look bad in the shot. She pays attention to detail, fixes hair and buttons and hand placement. She asks the right questions before the photoshoot to make sure she knows what you want out of your pictures. I’ve been 100% satisfied with every shoot I’ve done with her. I asolutely love the pictures she took of my children. I’m the type of person who HATES pictures of herself, this woman is the only person to ever take a picture of me that I actually liked. She goes the extra mile to make sure you’re happy!
