Tell me more about your films, and make up your mind Jackson, how long will my film actually be?
Woah woah, ease up tiger! The length is dependent on how your day unfolds, and the duration of the chosen song. You can be assured it'll be between five to six minutes long. My ears are open to suggestions, but not to worry, I've got a pretty fine music taste too. Just like my photos, I'll send this across digitally and then physically within thirty days as well. If you're into the geeky stuff, it's a 1920 x 1080 high resolution .MP4 file, suitable for all your electronics. I heard you can even watch it on the telly!
You won't charge for travel, are you out of your mind?
Yes, yes I am. My lifestyle is very sporadic. If you're getting married overseas, chances are I'll just make a holiday out of it. Perhaps you're celebrating in North East Victoria, well hey, that'll give me a chance to visit my family. This is far from some business module. I know my worth, and understand how grateful I need to be to occupy life with passion.
What do you come home with, and how do you edit?
My cameras are usually full to the brim by the end of the night. I cull an album down to around 400 favourites, definitely no less. I'd never put constrictions on the final outcome by keeping out a crowd favourite. If there is more, there is more, I do not charge for this. You won't be getting anything artificial either, as I do not agree with, nor have a background in skin retouching (click here for some homework). Everything you end up seeing has been extensively yet consistently edited by me. I believe that part of a photographers job is to curate a fitting mood that they noticed throughout the couples day through careful consideration. The job is not complete as soon as the cameras are put down.
Can we throw a bit of our direction into the mix?
Hey I won't stop you from being Pinterest savvy, but chances are my imagery resonated with you for a reason darl. I'm all ears, but wanting a photographer to replicate another creatives work gets us a little withdrawn. We've all got our own stylistic preference. In saying this, I do not provide unedited images upon request and will not allow for my photographs to be edited any further.
We're camera shy!
And you wonder why I'm behind the lens? Don't worry team, we're in this together. Half the time you won't even know I'm around. I like to allow an hour with both parties getting prepared, and another hour between the ceremony and reception for when we run away. My intentions toward the bridal party / first look / personal photo stage are quite personal to me, so feel free to use the contact form below if you'd like to hear more.
Anything else the two of us should be aware of?
I'll keep it simple. Yes, you'll receive the same album in both web resolution and print resolution. No I won't send you all of the RAW files. A good feed during the reception is appreciated. Eight to nine hours on my own terms really just comes down to when formalities finish, and how drunk your parents get. Deposits are at your own discretion and aren't mandatory. I'll shoot rain or shine. Group photos, tick! Family photos, tick! If something is still on your mind, please express this using the contact form below.
Well, that'd ruin the surprise now wouldn't it?
