Can you customize a photography session for my needs?

Absolutely! If you view any of my pricing packages for weddings, couples + engagements, families, and maternity sessions, and you would like to discuss a longer or shorter photoshoot, please let me know the details and I’d be happy to design a new package to suit your needs!

What is the best time to take photos?

The best time of day to take any photographs is 60 minutes before sunset or at sunrise. This is because the sun is lower in the sky and the light will be less harsh. However, I very rarely offer sunrise photography, but contact me if you wish to schedule this time.

What happens if it rains?

The weather is beyond all our control and unfortunately we do not have indoor backups. Due to the equipment I use I cannot shoot if it is raining, snowing, or if there is an electrical storm. If the weather gets the better of us and we are forced to postpone the session, I will work with you to find an alternative day and time suitable to both parties. If we cannot find a suitable date, your retainer is transferable within a 12 month period.

What happens if I need to reschedule or cancel my photoshoot?

If you need to reschedule the photoshoot for any reason I will work with you on finding a date that suits all parties. If I do not have availability on the date you wish to reschedule to, you will not receive your retainer, but it may be transferrable for up to 12-months from the date of your booked photoshoot.

If you cancel your photoshoot outright, your retainer and all monies paid up to that date will be forfeited and non-transferrable.

How many photographers would you expect to shoot during my session?
For a wedding with a larger number of guests, I would recommend having two photographers shooting the ceremony and reception. This is because the second photographer can cover areas that only having one could not, such as the groom and his entourage getting ready. It also allows a second perspective of the ceremony that one photographer alone cannot capture. For all other photography sessions there is usually only one photographer, depending on the style and type of shoot. If you prefer two, please email me and I can offer a quote for a second photographer.
How many images can we expect to get for any photoshoots?
For the full-day coverage wedding photography on average you will receive around 400 – 600 digital images. This of course will vary from one wedding to the next and will depend on the conditions of the day (weather, time of ceremony etc.). For all other photography (engagement, maternity, portraits etc.) this is based on the package you wish to purchase. Please see pricing pages for full details.
Do you edit all the images?

Yes, all the images you receive will be hand edited edited and sent to you as digital high-resolution JPEGs. 

  • Cropping to adjust the frame of the photo and draw attention to a specific subject;
  • Straightening to ensure the horizon of the image is level;
  • Adjusting brightness to ensure a light and airy exposure. Images that are too bright or dark lose important information and can lack detail in high-contrast areas.
Can I request additional edits to the images I receive?

It depends! I conduct basic editing for my images, which does not include editing physical size, hair nor any other physical appearance issues. Any additional edits of the images supplied to the clients will be at the editor’s discretion and you may be charged $100 per hour for these. Contact me for more information.

How long until I receive my edited photographs?
It will take on average 2-3 weeks for all images except weddings. These will generally take around 4 weeks.
