Here’s a few FAQ regarding to wedding photography that might help you answer any questions/concerns you might have in mind. If your questions are not there please send me a letter.

What is your photographic style?

My style is formally called photojournalistic wedding photography or wedding photojournalism.
It takes the hands-off, documentary approach of photojournalism and applies it to wedding photography. Throw in a good eye for lighting, meticulous composition, and the patience necessary to catch a meaningful moments. My goal is to capture the real emotive moments of the day—yours, your family’s, and your friends. Ultimately, trends and looks will go out of style, but the fleeting moments that represent our relationships, love and humanity will not. It is my aim to preserve them for a lifetime.

Will you be the only one shooting my wedding?

Yes, my packages include only me as the photographer, it is recommended to have another photographer if the guest lists are over 80. In the end 2 is always better than one.

How long will it take to get our images?

The industry standard is between 4-8 weeks, My aim is to finish well before that. I’ll be delivering sneak peaks within 72 hours after the wedding.

How many images do you deliver?
I try to have a quality over quantity mindset. Minimum 500 process images, but as I’m actually documenting the day I often supply more,(between 8 – 12 hours). The photos you do receive are carefully curated and lovingly edited to tell the visual narrative of your wedding day.

Do you offer engagement sessions?
Yes, It’s something I love to do. You’re engaged! I believe it’s very special and some professional images is great way to tell the world.

Will you travel?
Yes, Within Auckland and the Manawatu Region it’s free, elsewhere travel fee will apply.

How much are your booking fee
Booking fees are 30% of the agreed price and are non refundable.

Do we need to feed you?
I run, I jump, I squat, it’s a all day workout with the energy burned I/we (second photographer) would appreciate a meal to refuel for weddings over 5 hours.
