Questions & Answers
How do we book you?
In order to confirm your date, a retainer (50% of the accepted quote) is to be paid and a signed contract. The remainder is due on the Wedding day. All bookings are taken care of electronically. All prices are quoted in AUD.
Do you charge a travel fee to get to my wedding if it's out of Melbourne?
For any wedding outside of the 100KM of Melbourne CBD, there is a travel charge of $1.5/KM.
For interstate & international weddings, the travel fee is generally the cost of my flights, 3 nights accommodation and car rental if needed.
We will provide you with a travel quote and all travel arrangements are booked by us.
When do we get to see our Videos?
I will have the collection of highlights for you to view online about 3-5 weeks after your wedding date. Each clip in the highlight video is individually edited with great care not something to be rushed :)
Do you work with second shooters /assistants?
I work on my own and with the second shooter depending on the details and size of the wedding. Generally as rule, weddings with a guest count over 150 guests I would recommend a second shooter, for less than, I feel confident filming on my own. But I will be able to give you my recommendation given your exact plans for your wedding.
For elopements & small weddings in Melbourne, I work on my own.
Do you shoot photos?
Yes, I can. I am capable of shooting still photos similar style to my video. I was a full-time photographer before. However, my new love is video.
Do you have backup gear?
Of course, lots of it :)
What’s the best time of day to go to the Registry for our elopement?
Late afternoon sun near Marriage Registry at Old Treasury Building is best for outdoor portraits - generally in the final two hours before sunset. This is my favorite time of day to shoot, so I prefer an afternoon Registry ceremony so we can make the most of the late afternoon late for portraits afterward.
Can you help us with our timeline so we allow the right amount of time for photos etc?
Yes, I am always helping my couples with their wedding day timeline. I was a wedding florist and worked as a wedding coordinator many times. I have a good understanding of the schedule for a wedding. Please feel free to reach out to me anytime for help with this.
