Wedding photography/Documentary

My style is relaxed, natural and fun

Most of the day I would be recording what is going on and you will look great naturally. Sometimes I might suggest a place to do something if the light is prettier, but it’s still you being real. If you want some bridal party cover then we can put some time aside for that, often just natural fun posing, nothing stressful, or that you need to worry about... you can walk and hold hands aye? Your bridal party will no doubt have some great ideas as well. I love it when we can make time for some shots of just the two of you as a beautiful couple, perhaps at sunset. It will be fun and you will look amazing!

I am a relaxed wedding photographer. I am based in Hamilton at take local or close by weddings. Like you, I am after a relaxed fun day with no stress... exciting is fine, just not stressed. We have a bit of a plan going into the wedding and then see what happens. I have seen everything that could possibly happen on a wedding day, but always get nice photos.

How it works

Get in contact

If you like the look of my photos, then just shoot me a message with your date and book it in. You might have questions, lets meet or zoom for an hour to chat. Or better yet, lets do an engagement shoot so you 100% know if you like the results I give you.

01

The wedding day

We always go into the wedding with an itinerary with times and locations. I can help you work through that earlier on and make suggestions, but at the end of the day its a marriage, not a photoshoot, so that needs to be the priority. Have fun, avoid stress, and let me focus on documenting the day.

02

Getting your stuff

After the wedding I will send you some preview shots, normally the next day. Then a few weeks later you get the entire gallery of high resolution images. Easy peasy.

FAQ

How do I select a wedding photographer?

How do I book, how many photos will we get?

Look at the sample photos and if you like them then you know I can do the same for you. It’s also important to get someone who matches the energy you want on the day. The only thing you want on your mind on the wedding day is getting married and having a great day... so lets met for an engagement shoot?

Just send me a message. Make sure you mention your date so I can check my calendar, then its a $500 non refundable deposit. The number of photos you get depends on what happens on the day e.g. weather, but normally 400+, which is more than enough.

Is The wedding photographer contract scary?

What if we have to change the date or cancel?

I haven't had any issues but it's an industry thing to use a contract. Everything that is in it is based on a situation that might come up. If a guest interferes with my gear, or I have a camera failure, then it will affect the results you get. If you have any questions then let me know but generally, the contract is used to confirm what you are buying and at what price, along with some terms and conditions. Once it's signed I cant think of any occasion I have had to go back and look at it again. I guess it's insurance for us both about the agreement we are making.

If you decide to cancel or postpone, then I would give you a refund of all money paid apart from the deposit (which pays for work done so far and because I have said no to others wanting to book your day).

What are some hints from a wedding photographer?

I work with all sorts of people as a wedding photographer and some want lots of discussion and planning, others are happier with something loose. The main things I will ask you for are any times and locations so I can make the plan for my movement.

When you are planning, things always take a bit longer on the day than you might expect. Hair and makeup runs long, getting a bunch of people in and out of cars for travel etc Google Maps is pretty sweet for estimates, just add on 5 minutes each end.

The number one thing you can do for better photos is to plan for your idea of an awesome day and dont feel too pressured to have the standard wedding. That will make the best photos, if you are both having your idea of fun.
