The simple answer is...as soon as possible! Our booking lead rates range from 2 weeks (yes we do last minute bookings) to 2+ years. But on average most bookings are around 12-18 months in advance. And popular dates book out quickly! So as soon as you have your date set, it is worthwhile checking on our availability and securing your booking.

Every wedding is different so we don’t like to put an exact number on the number of photos you will receive. For example, a small backyard wedding will be less photos than a huge cultural wedding with lots of traditions and activities etc to capture. However there is no limit to number of photographs taken. To give you an idea, on average most weddings end up with min 60-80 images per hour coverage. And all images are edited (in same style you see on our website & socials.

Yes! Our packages are priced as competitively as we can do to start with. We do however offer even further savings if you book one of our combined photo & video packages. 

Yes! Our video team has drones, and if possible we are ALWAYS KEEN to put them up and capture some footage. We do not charge extra for drone. However, we are reluctant to guarantee drone footage at weddings (as depends on weather conditions, timings on day and other logistics etc). We always prioritise what is happening on the “ground”, although like mentioned, always keen to get them up if we can:) 

Yes, you receive the hi-res digital files (ready to print), and they are all individually edited for colour correction, contrast adjustments, tonal adjustments, and conversion to black and white (if applicable). We do not do heavy "photo-shopping" style editing as this is not compatible with our natural style.

Of Course! We know every wedding & couple's needs are different, so we are always happy to create a custom package tailored just for you.

We are based on the goregous Gold Coast, and majority of our weddings are on the Gold Coast, Brisbane, Northern NSW, Mount Tamborine & Hinterlands. However we always love to travel. We even have our passports ready (hint hint).

Wedding photography & videography is such an important and personal decision. Your goal is to find the right team that produces work you love, has experience and reputation you trust, and also obviously fits your budget! Hopefully, our team ticks those boxes.

New Black Studios was founded by Andrew & Sarah from “The Follans”. With over 15 years of full time wedding experience and being very well respected within the industry… you know you are in good hands! Our photographers & videographers are some of the best in the industry, however working under a studio umbrella means you are able to engage these high-end quality shooters for a fraction of their normal cost.

Thank you to our awesome photographers and videographers New Black Studios, for not only their incredible creative work but also for their patience - 3x delays due to the pandemic can be tough on business and these guys were always so gracious and supportive. We love our photos and they capture so many magical moments on the day. The style, the quality and the essence is just what we wanted. We also have a beautiful video to remember our special day and the moments shared with our baby boy, friends and family.

Awww thank you so much Em. We shared your ups and downs with the delays and rescheduling…….and we're just as excited as you guys to finally be able to share your day! And was even more special cause your beautiful boy was there as well. All the best for your future adventures and I'm sure we will be staying in touch ❤️

Andrew was fantastic! The staff were really flexible when we we asked to alter our package closer to the wedding date. This was as more details were known we realised we hadn't booked enough time and so they were more than accommodating and willing to work within the morning ceremony timeframe. Andrew was able to capture our day beautifully and we received so many different and unique photos that captured the real feel of the day. We were able to capture different scenery within the photos due to the venue, but Andrew made us feel comfortable throughout the whole day.

Thank you so much Mackenzie! Was so lovely to find your wonderful review here on Easy Weddings. Hope you & Matthew are well!

September 2019

Our first meeting with Sarah and we knew that they would be the team to capture our amazing day. Sarah was knowledgeable, warm and very informative. Sarah even went beyond to help us think about our run sheet and connecting us to other suppliers when we were at a loss. Reasonable packages and love how they match a photographer from their team to the couple and the style you're wanting.

What should we budget for drone footage at our wedding?

Would really love to add this element to our video as we are getting married on a beautiful private property, it's stunning. What should we budget for drone footage?

New Black Studios Photo & Video

Drone footage can seriously just add that extra WOW factor to your wedding videos. Especially when you are at a beautiful private property like you are! 

Our video team has drones, and if possible we are ALWAYS KEEN to put them up and capture some footage. We do not charge extra for drone. However getting drone footage does involve extra logitsics and you need to allow a bit of time into the video team schedule (especially if you only have 1 videographer). Some studios may charge extra for drone to allow a second videographer to attend wedding to capture this part????


What do we need to consider when choosing a videographer to film our day?

New Black Studios Photo & Video

Congrats on your engagement and I'm really glad you are considering getting videography!! Not getting video is the number 1 regret for many couples.

Choosing a videographer can be a daunting process. Our suggested key things to consider are:

1. Do you like their style? 
There are several ranges of styles of wedding videography. Not only in the filming process, but in the editing and delivery style of your wedding film. From traditional or cinematic to very artsy and quirky. From romantic & slow wedding videos, to more fast-pace & upbeat vibe. The videographers will be your story-tellers of your day, so it’s important your like the way they document your day. Best idea to view their sample videos and find a style you connect with.

2. Are they experienced?
Choosing a videographer who has proven experience in shooting weddings is a must! Weddings are a live and often unpredictable environment to cover. Your videographer needs to understand the wedding process and be able to adapt quickly to whatever a wedding day can involve. A good videographer also has appropriate professional equipment (our videographers each have multiple bodies, lenses, stands, gimbals, audio recorders & lighting equipment….plus drones!) 

3. Are they trusted?
Unfortunately there are some bad eggs that give our industry a bad name. Not communicating, cancelling last minute, missing key moments, not delivering video after wedding etc etc. The best way to ensure you engage a videographer you can trust is to look at their reviews, look at how long they have been in business and if respected in industry (often your venue will recommend their preferred suppliers).

4. Do they capture audio? And GOOD audio.
We believe that audio is a crucial part of wedding videos. You want to be be able to hear back your vows, or say listen back to your Dad’s speech. Some videographers only use on-camera audio, and some don’t capture audio at all (and simply put your footage over music). Our team usually captures 3 different sources of audio to ensure we capture the clearest audio possible and have backups in the case of technical issues etc. 

5. And lastly…are they in your budget?
Everyone has a budget to stick to. Make sure your videographer of choice has a package & deliverables that suit your needs as well as your budget. A tip is to find a studio who offers both photo & video, as often you can get a combined package deal which will be more cost effective for you.

Good Luck and hope this helps!

How long does it take to get your wedding video back?

Wondering how long it usually takes to get the final wedding video back? We are going on our honeymoon for a month straight after our wedding. What decisions do we need to factor in? We're planning to have a viewing party with some loved ones who can't be there on the day.

New Black Studios Photo & Video

Hi, we advise our couples that our standard turnaround for video is 8-12 weeks. However we usually provide a quicker turnaround during non-peak times. I would suggest just letting your chosen videographer know about your honeymoon travel arrangements and organise any requirements needed ahead of time.
