Let your guests capture some of the fun in the timeless cool of film photography! We can supply 35mm disposable cameras that have 24 shots each with a flash included.
We can also organise to have them developed for you by a photo lab, with optional prints and digital scanning available.
This one is for that super vintage feel with beautiful tones and a unique look. We shoot on some of the best film equipment ever made. Printing and digital scanning also able to be arranged. Please enquire about this option as we can make it a small or big thing – up to you!
The instant film photo is a super fun way to capture some memories. Your guests can also take home a sweet memento of the celebrations. We offer both mini and large size polaroids. This extra usually requires a second photographer, so please enquire about adding this option to your chosen wedding photography package.
With the popularity of destination weddings growing it’s only becoming more normal to need to pack a bag. Depending on the distance we may need to pass on some of the costs of travel, but we’ll keep it to a minimum as we love a good excuse to get away.
We live on the Gold Coast, but we also visit Brisbane all the time. So we do a LOT of Brisbane wedding photography.
We’re hoping Perth and Tasmania will pop up someday soon. Yeah, we like to get around!
As avid travellers ourselves we’re all for the new trend of destination weddings, so we’re also destination wedding photographers who do video.
So we’re more than happy to pack up our stuff and meet you somewhere beautiful!
But if you’re planning to get married in South East Queensland, the good news is that all of our wedding photography and videography packages include travel within South East Queensland (up to 2 hours from the Gold Coast).
Of course! We love meeting our clients and talking about our plan for the big day!
Usually we’ll suggest a coffee if distance allows, but we can also do phone calls, FaceTime of Skype if it’s more convenient.
We believe it’s best to get to know your clients and see if we can work together to make something magical. That way we’re all on the same page and everyone knows what to expect.
First it’s up to you to say hello. Even if you aren’t sure exactly which package you want, just send us a quick message or call us for a chat. We’re happy to answer any questions you may have before you make a booking.
Once we’ve made contact we’ll discuss your dates, how we fit into your wedding plan, any special requirements or extras, and the kind of images you want the most.
We then ask you to 100% confirm a date and pay the booking deposit (50% of the total cost) to lock in your special day date.
We’ll then make arrangements to be there or be square!
It is important to book as soon as possible, as we are open to bookings well into the future and agree to hold a booking once it is made. So, whether your event is in 2 days or two years, once we’re booked, we are booked.
Of course it depends on how much we have on and the time of year. Usually within 1-2 weeks, but possibly up to 3 weeks in peak season. We also don’t believe in rushing!
So, we always do our best to get everything organized and sent through as soon as we can. Because we know it makes for smiles. Plus, a beautiful set of wedding photos or a wedding video is worth waiting for after all!
The easiest way we can send your wedding photos or wedding film to you is using dropbox.com This allows you to download them using your computer or device with the official DropBox app. They will remain in our Dropbox for 2 years afterward at no cost. Following that we can continue to store them for a small additional fee.
We can also make you a CD or USB, though both are very easily damaged and not archival quality, so they are best used as a temporary device.
You can then make prints for albums and create your own backups on different devices or cloud services. All wedding photos are delivered in high resolution JPEG format, not RAW, for your convenience. We can organise RAW files if you like too for an additional cost.
We’re best at making wedding photos and wedding videos and we want to give all of our efforts to. We also don’t believe in charging extra for getting a third party to make something for you.
We can help you prepare your files ready for printing. Then we connect you with a reputable supplier for these specialist services.
You will have creative license to print them for your own personal use as much as you want. Though we do retain commercial rights to any pictures or video we create.
We mostly shoot with Canon 1D and 5D cameras and have done so for our whole photography careers.
But we also have a Contax G2, Ricoh GR2 and Polaroid Mini doing some good work. We use these for our extras like 35mm film photography, bride and groom polaroids, creative engagement photoshoots, and more.
Then we have a kit of lights and flashes. We also carry spares with us on the big day so we have a backup in case we need it.
Probably! Our main focus is on providing affordable wedding photos with unbeatable extras and a high quality result.
We’ve done our research and built our wedding packages to be as good a value as anyone else+ can offer.
But we do realise that everyone is different and so are their events, which is why we like to work with our clients whenever possible. So if we’re free on your day then we’ll be happy to create you an amazing package.
That’s a big Y-E-S! The good, the bad, the beautiful and the blurry – it’s all included for you to pour through. Did someone say slide night?!
We don’t really take bad photos though so usually they’re just funny faces, happy people and lots of laughs.
We actually include a free slideshow with our higher end wedding photography packages, too.
Of course not. We don’t think it’s necessary to brand our pictures. Plus they distract from the most important topic – you on your big day!
Any photos you commission are for you. It’s just our job to take them and take them well.
Usually we don’t attend event rehearsals but they can be great fun.
So if you’re thinking about adding rehearsal coverage to your wedding imagery package please let us know when making your booking.
We can also do a wedding rehearsal video, too!
Yes! Especially with destination weddings becoming more popular, people are looking to have extended coverage for many days full of fun, laughter and love.
If this is something you’re looking for then we can customise a destination wedding photographer package just for you.
We also have a page on Destination Wedding Locations In Australia for you to check out.
Yes, we certainly can. This option would probably be suited to shorter wedding times or elopements, but it’s definitely possible and would make for a unique look that modern technology can’t beat.
We love going back to the way things used to be done before digital photography came along!
Another option is to let the second photographer shoot some film while we use our high resolution digital cameras to shoot the main events of the wedding. This way you’ll get two unique sets of wedding photos.
