The Melbourne Wedding Photography Experience
To us, wedding photography is not just a celebration, it is a beginning of a new journey.
In a perfect world, where money was no object, how can we help you preserve and relive those precious memories?
We want to capture and freeze those beautiful moments on your wedding day, but it does not simply just happen, like that. It takes time, planning, experience and understanding.
When creating photographs and artwork, we want to be sure that everything captured provides a storytelling experience that is personally honest and meaningful to you.
To allow this co-creation to occur, it all starts with a conversation where we go together on a journey to understand what is special about your fiance, discover why you love each other and what made you want to spend the rest of your life with this person? Once we discover this, we celebrate it and bring it all into reality through your photographic experience.
Your wedding day is the beginning of a new chapter in your lives and it is one of the most exciting! Therefore, it should be a unique expression of your relationship, your family and your friends. We want to help you tell your story and showcase all of those intricate aesthetic details that express your story on your big day.
Understanding what is important and valuable to you is just as important to me as it is to you, by finding out your concerns and needs, we can customise your wedding collection specifically to you, so you can enjoy & cherish everything you love.
What does a typical wedding package/collection provide?
To record all of the intricate details and those special moments of your perfect wedding day; one of the biggest things on a photographers checklist is the wedding timeline. With every collection, we provide a wedding timeline template and provide guidance and consultation on how things should run on your special day, so in a way, on top of being photographers, we are also partly your wedding planners.
I always believe (as biased as it sounds) the relationship you have with your photographer is the most important not only because we are capturing those moments, but because of one factor that is always overlooked in a wedding, TIME.
The biggest problem for any wedding day checklist is time. For us photographers, time is a key factor to ensure all of the aesthetics and details you chose for your special day (this includes your flowers, bridesmaid dresses, wedding venues, wedding cakes etc.) are immortalised in your wedding album.
Many photographers will provide a collection or package with a wedding time line of 4-8 hours coverage. The collections we provide are a full day coverage (up to a point).
Why do we do this? We provide unlimited wedding coverage because we want to take time out of the equation. By taking time out of the equation, this will allow you to focus more on the day. You won't have to worry about me having to charge you extra (unless of course it goes beyond midnight), you won't have to worry about me rushing to take your photographs. Most importantly you won't have to worry about where we should be going because everything will be planned well in advanced at the pre-wedding meetings.
Instead all you'll have to worry about is knowing you'll get to enjoy your wedding day with your family and friends. At the same time, all you'll have to worry about is knowing that you're going to be given so many photos that look natural (because you're no longer stressed out), look authentic (because everyone is having fun), and look like a fairytale (because you got to live and experience the wedding of your dreams).
As the saying goes: "a wedding lasts a day, but a marriage lasts a lifetime".
What is it about your marriage you want to remember on your wedding day?
Full day coverage includes;
- Bridal preparation (the process of the bride getting prepared to get into her wedding dress)
- Groom preparation (process of the groom and the groomsmen getting prepared and getting into their suits)
- Wedding ceremony (from the moment dad walks her daughter down the aisle, to the moment the newlywed kiss as husband and wife)
- Family photography
- Wedding party & bride and groom photography
- Wedding venue reception
Our standard wedding package/collection provides;
A full day coverage prior to the wedding venue. The main differences in my collections are dependent on the amount of time you require me to cover your wedding reception (e.g. until end of formalities [speeches, cutting the cake, the first dance, wedding games] and the products provided; wedding albums & wall art).
We also provide an à la carte service that offers a range of products including digital files/prints/wall art and other premium products.
We want to ensure that every product you choose is specifically tailored towards your wedding collection and is something you love and cherish. If we are able to find out what is important and meaningful to you, it will give us a better idea on what you would like to spend with us.
