ARE YOU A FULL-TIME PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER?
Yes, I am a full-time professional photographer. I have been photographing weddings since 2011. I have over 200 weddings behind me and love my job just as much as the day I started.
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE OF WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY?
I photograph in a candid style, focusing on real moments so that your images are a true reflection of your day. As well as this I will gently guide you during the location shoot so you are never left feeling uneasy. This ensures your images remain natural and timeless.
DO YOU USE A SECOND PHOTOGRAPHER ON THE WEDDING DAY?
All of the weddings photographed on my website are of me shooting alone. With two cameras at my side I feel I can cover all angles and moments with ease and confidence. With 9 years of experience behind me I know the flow of a wedding day extremely well and can anticipate moments in advance. If you feel you need an extra photographer on your day I am happy to provide a quote.
DO WE RECEIVE DIGITAL FILES?
Absolutely, with all of my package you will receive a set of high-resolution images that are ready for you to print and share as you wish via your own private gallery. You will also receive an online slideshow set to music which is downloadable and yours to keep.
HOW MANY IMAGES WILL WE RECEIVE?
In general, I deliver around 70-80 images per hour. The number of images you receive can be a result of varying factors, such as the number of details, amount of portrait time, the weather and the number of guests.
WILL OUR IMAGES BE EDITED?
Absolutely, I work with the colour palette of your day, adjust the colour and contrast and I also apply subtle airbrushing to the skin, which I feel is very important. New editing styles are always emerging and what used to be on trend two years ago can now be considered as dated. It's important to remember that your wedding photos will last for generations so with this in mind I like to keep my editing as true to life as possible. I guess my style of editing is considered quite natural or in fancy terms "enhanced-realism"
DO WE NEED TO PROVIDE A SHOT LIST FOR YOU TO FOLLOW?
I like to capture the day how it naturally unfolds. A shot list can take the spontaneity out of the experience, and may not allow me to be creative and be truly “in the moment”. Be assured that all of your big moments will be captured and don’t worry, I love capturing even the tiniest of details as well. Family formals are covered effortlessly with my recommended shot list and if time allows I will always ask if you have any special requests at the end of each family's session so that no one is left out. However I do love seeing pinterest boards or photos of inspiration so I can get an idea of what appeals to you. Some couples prefer more candid moments, some are ultra romantic and other couples may have a more modern approach.
WHEN WILL WE RECEIVE THE IMAGES
Usually between 4-8 weeks depending on if you are married in off-peak or peak wedding season. If your Package has Videography included please allow up to 12 weeks for completion although we always strive for an early delivery.
WE ARE INTERESTED IN THE PHOTOGRAPHY AND VIDEOGRAPHY PACKAGE, CAN YOU GIVE US SOME MORE INFORMATION?
Depending on your package my Husband Alexei will create a highlights film set to music with audio overlays, capturing the whole story of the day in a creative and truly engaging way. Alexei will also provide you with full raw footage from your ceremony and Reception Speeches as a multi-cam edit. This will be provided to you on a custom USB, along with the Wedding Highlight Film.
