Adelaide Photographer & Filmmaker

My Philosophy

If there is one thing I find the most important to capture, its the connection between the two of you.

 

Our day to day lives are so busy these days that we quite often forget to take some time out and just be. my aim for your day is to slow down, concentrate on each other, and enjoy all the small moments. to capture them all for you to look back and remember for years to come.

Why Hire Me?

It's about so much more than the film + photo

I's so important to find someone whose work you love, BUT I also believe it's just as important to find someone who will bring out the best of who you are in your film to help tell your story!

 

The two of you are about to start one of the most challenging, rewarding, exciting, life changing experience of your lives together - choosing someone to capture your day is a big decision.

"The real importance of wedding videos come from their ability to let you relive your big day. Unlike photographs, videos give you the voices, the noises, the sounds and the action of one of the most memorable days of your life and keeps it saved forever"

My Approach

Your wedding day is all about you and celebrating with those you love, so let's keep it that way! Before your day we'll meet to make sure we are a great match and I'll get to know you both a little more to find out what is important to you and how to best capture your day.

 

I am so thrilled that your considering me to join in your team to capture your incredible day

What to Expect

The first step is for me to get to know you both. When you book your wedding day with me, I'll send you an invoice to lock in your date, plus a standard contract that covers us both in the event that it's needed.

 

Then we'll meet and go over all your ideas for the day, and go over your timeline. If you are unsure of any of the particulars I am there to help!

A month before your wedding day, I'll send you a questionnaire which will help me get to know a bit about you and your partner's story. The answers to your questionnaire will play a key role in developing the plans for your film.

I always encourage my clients to view this as a collaborative process between your vision and mine and I'll work with you to help develop this together.

My job as an artist is to create work that is meaningful to you, and my best chance of doing that is if you open up to me about the things that matter the most to you. By getting to know you better, I'll be able to create work that feels like stepping into a memory of your wedding day, and you both as a couple before you begin your new chapter together. This is the part of my process that sets my work apart from others.

Ceremony (83).jpg

its your day!

 

I'll be more like a fly on the wall and capture all those small details as well as the big moments while you simply immerse yourself in enjoying all your hard work!

 

 

After your ceremony we'll take some formal family portraits if that's what you've chosen , then we'll take some time together, just the 2 of you, to take some more intimate portraits together before heading back to capture all the fun of your reception!

 

All you need to do is sit back and relax!

Travel Sessions

I love travelling and am more than happy to work with clients in places all over the country. If you'd like to book me for your big day outside of Adelaide*, I ask that in addition to my usual fees, you also cover the cost of a return trip airfare, 1 night accommodation (2 nights if I'm travelling farther than a 3hr flight), and car hire. to check prices, simply search for flights through QANTAS from Adelaide to your nearest airport, plus car hire fees in your town, and accommodation options nearby.

 

Either I can book these services and invoice you for them, or you can book them under my name and pay them directly, just let me know what you'd like to do.

 

If I'm already travelling to your location, you won't be responsible for any additional travel costs.

* Depending on any COVID and government restrictions
