I know a photographer that charges less than you. Can you match them?
“A commodity is anything for which there is demand, but which is supplied without qualitative differentiation across a market no matter who produces it. In other words, Coper and rice are coper and rice. Stereo systems, on the other hand, have many aspects of product differentiation and the more valuable a stereo is, the more it will cost.” — WIKIPEDIA
Do you also do Videography?
Yes, we do both documentary style (apx 5 min) and an elaborated video of about 1 hour plus.
How long will it take you to deliver my pictures?
Time frames can range anywhere from two months to three months, depending on the time of the year and my schedule.
Which cameras do you use?
It is really not the camera that creates the image but the person holding it. I use the latest and best equipment that I need to create the magic that you expect me to create. The famous American author and journalist Ernest Hemingway once met the legendary photographer Irving Penn at an event.
Ernest Hemingway: “Good pictures, what camera do you use?” Irving Penn: “What typewriter do you use?”
I definitely want to book you, now what?
The first step is to make sure that the date is still available. Then decide which package you want. Let me know and I will put a contract together. Once I have a signed contract, then the date is yours. You are welcome to set up a consultation and come chat to me at any point in the process.
Do you offer traditional wedding photography? Photojournalism? Or both?
I offer a style which combines photojournalism with a fine art aesthetic. Although I feel that your wedding day encapsulates your life and family history and your photos of the day should reflect that so I do encourage couples to have the formal group shots photographed. It is hard to define a style in words, I mean is “romantic” really different from traditional. I would suggest that you have a look at my portfolio – all of the photos in it were taken at actual weddings, some are directed but nothing is posed, all the images reflect ‘the moment’ and I think that it shows.
We do take some of the more traditional photos of the bride and groom staring at the camera and smiling. We call it the parents photo, as I feel that most parents want a nice black and white of the couple smiling at the camera.
We’re not crazy about lots of group photos but our parents really want them. Do you do the standard group and family shots even though your style is more candid?
I do group shots. I try and limit these. You will need to provide us with a shot list of the various groups that you need photographed and assign one person.
I definitely want to book. Can you hold my date without a retainer?
Bookings are only confirmed when I get a retainer and a signed contract.
Please feel free to contact me for more information and I will be happy to answer.
