For full day packages, I cover both bride and groom preparations (usually about an hour and a half for the guys and 2 hours for the girls, but there’s no set times), throughout the ceremony and portraits afterwards, and through until 11pm (or whenever your reception finishes, if it’s a lunchtime wedding). That means your entire day is covered, including all your formalities through the reception, as well as your bouquet and garter, and farewells.

For a Ceremony+Portraits package, I allow for around 2.5 to 3 hours of coverage, starting from the ceremony start time. That usually gives us enough time to cover the bride’s arrival, ceremony itself, group shot and family portraits afterwards, and then around 1.5 hours to cover bridal party all together and of course, the bride and groom.

If you have requirements that don’t fit either of those scenarios, that’s fine – I’ll customise something for you.

Our wedding photography prices include your complete set of finished wedding images in high resolution, and a set in screen resolution as well (to make it easy to email them and put them on facebook, etc.). We don’t include every single shot – you don’t need the ones where someone blinked or looked away. There’s no minimum number and no maximum – the way we think about it is “if these were my wedding photos, would I want that shot?” . If in doubt, we leave it in the finished set.

The finished set are colour corrected, cropped and made print-ready. They’re processed in a natural and classic style, and where we think images are suited to black-and-white treatment we’ll include a black-and-white version as well. And you get to review them all in your password-protected gallery before we create the final set of high-resolution versions, so if there are any any changes you’d like, just let us know.

No, not watermarked in any way. They’re print ready, and you’re free to have prints made wherever you like.

Jon was great! We had terrible weather the day of our wedding and somehow he still made it work and came up with some amazing shots. He makes you feel super comfortable, and is so professional. He is very well priced and keeps in contact throughout the whole process!

Thanks so much Jasmine - you are very kind! And it was a pleasure working with you both, I was super impressed by the way you took the weather in your stride and still have a brilliant day. Thanks again - chat with you soon :)

Jon was exceptional on the day, and leading up to the wedding. He was friendly, chilled, incredible with the kids, and relaxed and flexible with us, which was exactly the style we wanted. His work is great, and we cannot wait to see the finished product! We did the main photography before our ceremony at several different spots, and Jon was flexible with our suggestions and desire to scale fences and climb over rocks to get some artistic shots. He was quick and confident with group photography after the ceremony, and engaged the kids to help throughout the day to keep them entertained and involved, which they were stoked about. Guests were really impressed. Jon was a gentle presence on the edge of the event, and never felt intrusive. Can't recommend highly enough! Thanks, Jen & Lara

And thanks for putting your faith in me to cover your big day, I'm glad I was able to blend into your special day in a way you were comfortable with. Working and chatting with you both has been an absolute pleasure throughout the journey :) Look forward to catching up soon.

Jon is a true professional. We knew Jon was the photographer for our wedding from the first time we met with him. We had an instant connection and immediately we could see that Jon understood what we wanted. We had Jon work with us from the morning right up until we walked out of the reception at the end of the night. Jon was an absolute pleasure to work with and it was so good to see a sneak peak of our photos while we we're on our honeymoon ,they look fantastic and we can't wait to see the final package. Thanks once again Jon , we would have no hesitation in recommending Millgrove Photography for your events photography Regards Sheb & Tony

Millgrove Photography was absolutely amazing from beginning to end. Jon was responsive, friendly and professional every step of the way and made our wedding day completely stress free when it came to the photos. Importantly, the photos were perfect and everything we had imagined. Thanks so much Jon!

Jon took the time to listen to what we wanted and then delivered. He did a great job and produced some excellent photos of our wedding. Would recommend Jon in the future and am grateful to have had such an experienced photographer capture the most important moments of our special day

can you cancel your wedding photographer?

For example, if the wedding was cancelled or postponed, could you cancel?

Millgrove Photography

It's usually possible to cancel the photographer, although as has been mentioned it will depend on the contract you have in place with them. 

It's always a good idea to ask what their cancellation/refund policy is - some have a strict no-cancellation policy, others have staged payments and some won't offer any refund at all depending on how far out the wedding is.

Wedding do need to be cancelled or postponed from time to time - we've had it happen for various reasons from the very sad to the very happy (like a new little one deciding to book their arrival date for the same day as the wedding! :)

If the question really is "can I get my deposit back if I cancel", it really will depend on your agreement with the photographer and their policy.

I'm looking for a photographer that can fit into my small budget of 5,000 in melbourne?

My venue is in the yarra valley, I like candid images

Millgrove Photography

Hi there,

Congratulations on your wedding news and on picking a venue in the beautiful Yarra Valley.

As well as the other great responses here, you may want to consider whether the photographer is accredited by the AIPP (Australian Institute of Professional Photography), which ensures they are indeed a professional and have covered things like insurance, offer a contract, etc.

Also, depending where in the Yarra Valley you're getting married, it would be worth talking to some photographers who are based in that area and who know the venues well.

Also, checking out reviews on Easy Weddings and Facebook will give you a great idea of past clients' experience.

All the best!

if a photographer is with me for 8 hours, when do they get a lunch break?

when is the best time to give them a meal?

Millgrove Photography

Hi there,

As others have mentioned, the short answer to this is usually - "what lunch break"? :-)

We're usually on the go from when we get to the prep locations through until you guys sit down for some entree, at which time it's a good time to take a short break for something to eat. Speaking personally, I also have a stash of snack foods and lots of water in the car, so I can keep the energy up through the day.

And, as Niki mentioned, thanks for the thought!
