Her style has been described as soft and intimate, it comes from a place that feels real.

FAQ

Its not necessary to have 2 photographers but if you have over 80 guests its great to have more footage from other angles as the main photographer will be mainly concentrating on the bride and groom and family members. 

I am happy to shoot as much as you would like me there, a recommended time would be 6-8 hrs as this ususally covers getting ready to first dance and cake cutting and guests dancing. I have packages starting from 4hrs up to as long as you like, sometimes weddings go over a few days and thats fine too, I just cater a package to suit you. 

Yes, I love too! I carefully calculated travel fees, ensuring things work out cost-effectively for everyone involved. I have been fortunate enough to shoot weddings in New York for 5 years, The Bahamas, The Hamptons and all over Australia from the Hunter to Byron Bay. A favourite was Italy,  Lake Como, Hawaii and Scottland in a castle. Shooting in Paris was a dream come true too. 

I love shooting weddings mainly, I also shoot some fashion which I think they are both very similar in that Im trying to tell a creative story of the day. Backstage Paris fashion week for Russh magazine was a bucklist I was lucky enough to shoot. 

Sure, Id love to chat over a coffee or facetime or emails, its completly up to you and how you would like to manage the time. 
Im a very calm and organized person and am always happy to nut out any timelines or questions you may have etc. 

Unfortunately, its best to book and pay a half deposit to ensure your day is booked. 
Ofcourse I can wait a day or two but this best so that no one misses out on their special day. 

I will let you know your wedding has been uploaded onto your private online gallery. In your gallery, you can download all the images in high/low resolution, create favourite lists, share with socials, order prints and frames all within 2 weeks of the wedding. 

From there your welcome to order an album no obligation ofcourse. 

Yes its a great idea so that on your big day, you dont have to remember everyone you would like photographed formally. 

If not you can deligate a family member to ensure all the close family members know to meet and when. ( makes for a smoother wedding )

Yes within 2 weeks of the wedding you can easily order with your online gallery,  and so can your guests or anyone you send the link onto. 

there is an amazing built-in store with one of my favourite print labs where you can order prints, frames and lots of other amazing products.

Yes I do. I love videoing the wedding in a similar story-telling style to my photos. I generally pick all the best parts of the wedding and edit it to your 3 favourite picked songs. 

This has and never will happen. However, if it did I have contacts all over Australia that are available to step in and shoot for me. My husband is also a very talented photographer that shot in New York with me for the same business named one of the top 10 wedding photographers in the world by Harpers Bazaar Magazine, he would be my first port of call ofcourse. 

Great!!! Please email or call me to let me know the date so I can check that its free. Then I will email you a confirmation and paperwork etc. Once the date is picked and deposit is paid its set in stone.

We have known Jodie for over 20 years. Her skills are amazing and she assisted in making our day as seamless and calming as possible. She is a very hard worker and is a calming presence, very professional and everything was made very clear before the day. 100% recommend .

Absolutely stunning photos and incredible experience with Jodie. She photographed my wedding on a ranch in Texas when they were based in New York, it was a pretty crazy weekend and had a lot of moving parts and she was such a calming presence. She took the most incredible photos, everyone loved her. She has such a beautiful eye, I love how natural all the photos look - nothing is forced or cheesy. Super timeless. I can't recommend her enough, she's the best.

Wow thanks Ellie, I will never forget getting to shoot and video you riding in on a horse in Texas, what beautiful imagery I was lucky enough to get to shoot. Thank you so much for your kind words.

How far will wedding photographers travel and how do travel fees work?

We're considering a destination wedding but wondering if we find the photographer we love, will they travel, and how do they charge for that?

McBride Studio

Hi I've personally traveled all over the world so anywhere is possible and we work out a plan of how much extra that is depending on the logistics regarding petrol or plane flights. 
it's easy to give an estimate as soon as I hear the plan. 

What's the best time to choose our wedding photographer?

Thinking of having video as well.

McBride Studio

It's great to lock in a photographer that is line with your style quickly as the good ones are generally booked . 

How can I become more natural in front of the camera?

Is there anything my partner and I can do to practice being less awkward in front of the camera? We are very shy. Or is it purely up to the photographer we pick?

McBride Studio

It's easy, with me I will guide you on where to look and what do do during the bridal shoot so that you will have a relaxed looking editorial outcome . I also ask you to not look worried as most things on the day are organised so you may as well enjoy every moment.
