Second Photographer for One Day
Before the wedding, let's make some photographs together. It's nice to hang out, relax and make images where you're not just in suits and dresses. They are timeless, personal and informal, and totally all about you. I usually suggest doing a hobby you're both into, getting a beverage at your local, or just hanging out at your place.
(they can also make wonderful images for your invitations)
Hangouts are delivered in the same format as the digital negatives for your wedding.
I don't believe coffee table computers are a thing. I feel the story of your day is best preserved and presented in an album; something tangible, personal and unique. Albums are available to order with your wedding package at a 15% discount.

What do we get?
Every wedding is different. The amount of images I deliver varies depending on bridal party, guests, locations, pretty much everything! It seems like a bit of an arbitrary estimate, but it's around 50 images per hour of coverage. I aim to deliver the best selection of images that reflect the story of your day. I don't give out RAW files or every single image delivered, and honestly who wants slightly-not-as-good versions of those amazing moments when I've delivered the best one?! I deliver about 2/3rds of every wedding in colour. I also love crunchy black and white images that allow for expressions and moments to shine through.
What are you like on the day?
I believe being unobtrusive and being distant aren't the same thing. I like to keep it simple, and I don't hide away from the action. I don't need much from you on the day other than your trust. That's a big thing of course, but with that, all the other details fall in to place. I allow plenty of time in our pre-wedding consultations to nut out all the details, and I have a running sheet that you can fill out to help with that.
Do you travel?
YES! I on-charge any travel expenses for any wedding two hours or more from Brisbane. This includes flights and any accomodation if you chose a package that has me staying late! I do this to stay safe, as documenting weddings is both physically and mentally demanding. I also feel that, as much of a luxury it may seem, travel keeps me fresh and inspired and helps drive my personal photography, which got me in to this game in the first place. It's all a cycle.
What are your expenses?
I realise that I don't sit at the top of the market, but I'm also not at the bottom. These are some of the things I cover that directly affect you, to make sure I can deliver a great product to you next week, and your best friend in 5 years time.
- I invest time and money every year to make myself a better photographer.
- Myself and my gear are fully insured.
- I carry at least two cameras on me at all times with multiple lenses.
- I regularly service all that gear to make sure it's 100%.
- As a registered Nikon pro I can get loaner gear at super short notice.
- I backup all images in-camera using two memory card slots AS I WORK
- I create four copies of your images as soon as I return to the studio.
- Yes, FOUR! That's three BACKUPS, and one that I work off.
- One of these goes off-site the next time I leave the house. Thanks, Mum!
- I pay all my tax/GST and I'm not a gangsta. I'm cooler than a gangsta, anyway.
- I have a solid set of online systems that make sure I know who/what/when/where.
What are your credentials?
I've been photographing since 2005, and I went full time with this little business in 2012. I have a bachelors degree in Photojournalism from the Queensland College of Art, Griffith University, and I'm also a member of the Australian Industry of Professional Photography. This is a government recognised body that supports photographers all over the country in continued professional development. You can learn more about them here and what that means for you here. They have annual state and national level awards, of which I am a recipient in Wedding and Documentary categories.
What stuff do you use?
I use Nikon and Fuji cameras with a bunch of lenses. My working distance befits my favourite focal lengths of 24mm, 35mm, and 50mm. I spend most of my editing time in Lightroom, and occasionally use Photoshop. If there's time and space for us to slow down and make some portraits on film, I like to bust out my Mamiya RZ67 with 90mm or 180mm lenses, and for my personal/travel work I use a Fuji Xpro-2 and an Olympus OM-1.
When do we get our photographs?
I deliver images within 8 weeks of your wedding day. I take care on every frame to make sure it's the best it can possibly be, including retouching portrait images. My rule is that if it's not there normally, I'll get rid of it. Any extensive retouching is by request, on a case by case basis.
Can we customise a package?
Totally! Every wedding is different.
How do we pay you?
You can pay via bank transfer or credit card. I take a 50% deposit payable within 48 hours of booking, with the balance to be settled by 30 days before your wedding.
Are you a real person?
YES! Alive and kicking. I have too many hobbies - I love music (I have a great vinyl collection guys), video games, comics and podcasting. I guess the outdoors are also pretty good too! And these guys :)
