LAID BACK DOCUMENTARY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY
Nothing fills out hears like watching two people say their vows to a room full of love.
We capture the good vibes and fun times that, for years to come, job memories and start conversations about that one beautiful day when you met down the aisle and walked away hand in hand.
SO WE’RE KINDA AWKWARD IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA…
We are too! So we totally feel you. The advice we always give is to focus on each other — it’s your love we want to capture, so the more you’re present with each other the more moments naturally happen. It’s our job to make you feel comfortable so there’s definitely no silly poses, or any posing really. We’ll still give you some direction (we won’t leave you in the lurch!) but we want to catch you as you are.
PHEW! OK, SO WE'VE NEVER PLANNED A WEDDING BEFORE. WHAT DO WE NEED TO KNOW?
Well it all depends on what your plans are, but here’s what we usually recommend:
We generally need around half an hour to an hour for the getting ready shots before you leave for the ceremony. After the ceremony, and depending on how many group shots you’d like to take, it could be anywhere between 15-45 minutes. Keep in mind that a group shot with all your guests could take 15 minutes all by itself.
HOLD ON – THE GROUPS TAKE HOW LONG?
Group shots can eat up a fair bit of time, so we recommend keeping it to just family. We also ask that you check in with mum and dad about which family groups are most important to them, and make a list of the ones we should get after the ceremony so we can check them off. It’s also really helpful to have someone from each side of the family to wrangle the people who will be in the photo.
GOOD POINT! WHAT’S NEXT?
For the portraits we’d love around an hour with you and your wedding party, excluding travel time, and to really finish the day off we’d want to be at the reception in time to cover the formal stuff and around 30 min to an hour of dancefloor action. If you have a big exit planned we can totally stick around, but otherwise Instagram has you covered!
SO FAR SO GOOD – BUT WHAT’S IT LIKE WORKING WITH YOU?
Great question! First of all, we work for you. It doesn’t always feel that way with some vendors, but we want you to have a day you remember for all the good times, so we bring the good vibes and a can-do attitude and be the totally stress free element of your day. We’re not precious, we’ll help Grandma take that selfie, and point out the good angles to Uncle Barry with his new fangled camera.
ALRIGHT, WE’RE SOLD! WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?
Brilliant! First off, get in touch using the form below and we’ll arrange a time to meet and get to know one another. Then we’ll send you a link to sign the contract and pay the booking fee (20%) to lock in the date. A few weeks before the big day we’ll check in and get the day’s schedule from you, and the remainder is due two weeks before the wedding day.
WE'D LOVE TO HEAR FROM YOU
Get in touch by email or using the form below. If we’re in the same place we’d love to catch up over a coffee (or a mid-week vino!) or if we're not let’s set up a Skype date.
Either way, we can’t wait to meet you!
