Your Questions Answered

How would you describe your style?

Relaxed, romantic, timeless, modern and candid. 

I focus on fleeting moments, emotions, and all the little details that make up the whole story of your wedding day.

My approach on the day is relaxed and calm and non-obtrusive. A lot of the time you won’t even know I’m there.

My goal is to capture the real you and to tell your story in a truthful and artistic way.

What’s your vibe at a wedding?

I’m relaxed and approachable and I love to have a chat. Basically, my goal is to fit in with everyone and blend in, I want you to feel as if I'm one of your guests.

I will be as excited as your loved ones to see you walk down the aisle, to hear all the speeches and to enjoy watching everyone tear up the dance floor. I really love getting in amongst it all.

If you're after someone who you can be friends with then I'm your girl. I invest a lot of time into each and every wedding well before the big day arrives. I love to get to know each couple I work with.

If you're just after a service provider who will just show up on the day and do their job without getting involved then we might not be the right fit for each other.

How much are your wedding packages?

My Full Day package is $5,900 (9 hours coverage). I also offer a 5 hour package for more intimate weddings or for couples who only want coverage from their ceremony onwards.

Nine hours coverage allows me to capture all the beautiful details and moments of your wedding day, from the getting ready and all the way into the first couple of hours of your reception.

I’m always happy to chat to you about how many hours you might need and work out a plan that suits your day perfectly. You are also not limited to my set packages, I am always happy to customise a package for you.

Just hit 'Contact' above to get in touch and we can chat more.

We don’t like posed photos, is that ok?

Absolutely! I can assure you that when you work with me there will be no posing, no awkwardness nor will I create fake moments.

I photograph weddings in a relaxed style and I like to let the day unfold naturally.

I will of course provide you with a little bit of gentle direction if and when needed - for example during the location portraits and family photos.

The rest of the day you won’t even know I’m there.

How many hours coverage do we need?

This depends on which parts of the day you would like me to capture. If your ceremony and reception will be at the same venue and you also wish to take photos nearby then I can easily cover your entire day in 9 hours - from the getting ready to all the formalities at the reception.

I would be happy to chat to you about coverage options because no wedding day is the same.

When is the best time for location photos?

To ensure you get that beautiful and flattering soft light I recommend your location photos be done about an hour or so before sunset. I understand that sometimes this is not workable (i.e. if you are getting married in a church and your ceremony is at 2pm). In these situations I will always suggest to you that you allow a 15 minute break during your reception (around the time the sun goes down) for us to sneak outside and get some photos in that magical light.

Do you offer albums?

Yes! I absolutely love albums. There is nothing like seeing your photos printed on fine art paper. I design all my albums with my couples' input and the process is so easy - it's all done online. You can choose to add on an album at the time of booking your photography package (at a special rate) but also later down the track - some couples order an album as a first anniversary gift to each other!. To view some albums please click on 'Information' in the menu above and select 'Fine Art Albums'

Do you take family photos on the day?

Of course. Prior to your wedding day I will ask you to provide me with a list of the family groups you would like me to photograph. These photos will be taken after your ceremony (after you've had a few moments for congratulations and hugs). I will ensure that this part of your day is relaxed and pleasant. I'm actually known for making this part of the day quite quick and easy!

Do you need a shot list?

No and I highly discourage this as it doesn't allow me to capture your day to the best of my ability. My way of working is very much documentary and photojournalistic. I am there to capture the real moments and interactions. I have been photographing weddings for almost 10 years so you can rest assured that I have all the important details covered. The only time I will ask for a list is for the family/group photos after the ceremony.

How do we book you for our wedding day?

To secure your wedding date I require a non-refundable partial payment of $1,500 and a signed contract. Once that is done, your date is locked in.

Do you hold dates?

Unfortunately no. I often receive multiple enquiries for the same date so I am unable to hold dates. The only way to ensure the date is yours is to reserve it by signing my contract and paying the booking fee.

When can we expect to receive our photos?

You will receive a preview gallery within one week of your wedding day and your full wedding gallery will be ready within 8 weeks following your wedding day. Please note that full galleries for weddings taking place during October, November, December and early January might take a little longer to be delivered due to the Christmas and New Year holidays (allow up to 10 weeks). Couples getting married during these months will still receive their preview gallery within a week of their wedding.

What camera equipment do you use?

I use mirrorless Canon cameras and prime lenses. My favourite lens is the 35mm L series.

Do you personally edit the photos we receive?

Yes, I personally edit all images I deliver to you. I don't outsource my editing because I want to retain the creative control over my work. My aim when editing your images is to present you with natural images that will last the test of time. I supply you with images in a mix of colour and black and white.

Do you retouch photos?

While I will fix up the odd little imperfections (i.e. removing a fly on your dress, an obvious pimple or cut etc) I do not heavily retouch images or do beauty retouching such as slimming etc. I believe that photographs of your wedding day should represent the real you and I find that natural photographs are always the most flattering and the ones that will stand the test of time. If there are some images you wish to have retouched I am always happy to refer you to a professional retoucher.

Is this your full time job?

Sure is! I am a full time wedding photographer and I devote all my time to perfecting my craft.

I shot my first wedding in 2014 and have come across lots of different situations on a wedding day, including very tight timelines, bad weather, and poor light.

Having me document your wedding day means that you can relax and enjoy the day because I have everything under control.

Do you have a second photographer?

While I shoot most weddings on my own very comfortably there is an option to add on a second photographer to your package. The only time I will suggest the option of a second photographer is if there are time constraints on the day and I cannot be in two places at once or if you have a guest list of 150+. I prefer to shoot on my own so that I can give you my undivided attention and build a rapport with your loved ones and guests. I also feel that having one photographer on the day makes things a lot more relaxed for everyone involved.

Do you offer discounts?

Unfortunately no. With the amount of time, creativity and effort I put into each client and wedding, I'm unable to offer discounts.

Can we meet you?

Yes, absolutely! I aim to meet all my couples before their wedding day (usually a few weeks before the wedding). This is a casual catch up over a coffee so we can get to know each other, finalise the timeline for the day and discuss any last minute details. These meetings can also take place over Zoom (if we live too far away from each other).

For couples who haven't yet booked me I am happy to have a chat over the phone to answer any questions prior to booking.

What else do you like to do besides photography?

I love spending time by the beach (I live in beautiful Coogee), taking my dog for walks, enjoying a coffee in a local cafe while people watching, going on walks with my husband and exploring Sydney's beaches and hidden bays.

I love art and history and learning how people lived in times before ours. What especially fascinates me is life and art in European royal courts - take me to an art gallery and I will spend hours looking at paintings and reading the artwork labels. The Uffizi Gallery in Florence, Versailles and the Victoria & Albert Museum in London are some of my favourites.

When I get a free weekend I love to either spend it by the beach or go for a drive out of Sydney - being in nature and especially near the coast is where I am the happiest.

I'm a quiet and introspective soul but once we get to know each other you'll probably feel like you've known me forever.

I also love to travel (I spent my early years living in a few different European countries!) and there are so many places in the world I am yet to see (the list just keeps growing).

My favourite destinations so far have been the Amalfi Coast and especially Positano and Anacapri, Rome, Port Douglas, Prague, Freycinet and last but absolutely not least, Hvar in Croatia.
