Initially we will only book your choice of wedding coverage, which includes the high resolution files on USB and an online gallery. We feel that it isn’t until you have seen all your images that you will know which products you wish to purchase. A viewing session at our studio will be booked in once your images have been prepared. You will also have the opportunity to explore your product options, including our fine art Queensberry Wedding Albums, fine art textured prints, wall art and framed prints. We can put together a product package with bonus options to suit your needs at this time. Wedding albums start at $80 a side (min of 20 sides) fully inclusive of design, high quality leathers and embossing. Take Home Layby options are also available.
Our wedding pricing ranges between $2000 and $5000 for most packages. Please contact the studio for more information regarding packages.
You’ve decided to book, that’s great! We will need to arrange, by phone or email, for you to come in to the studio to meet with our talented team. This gives us the opportunity to discuss the timing of your itinerary with you. This will help you decide which package will best suit the structure of your big day and help you to plan for enough time for photography capture at each stage. To secure your date, so that it is no longer available to other couples, a deposit of $650 is required. For those who are interstate or overseas, everything can be arranged online via Skype, email and/or fax. Please email us for details.
The balance of your wedding photography package is due 2 weeks prior to the wedding date. At this time an updated, final itinerary for the day must also be provided.
We service couples travelling from Asia to Melbourne for a pre-wedding photo session. Just contact us directly for a quote based on hours required. Hair and makeup is included for longer packages.
There is no issue with this. We encourage guests to use their cameras at your wedding so they can capture their own personal memories. We only suggest that guests refrain from obstructing the view of the main photographer when capturing key moments such as walking down the aisle, first kiss etc.
Well…….you go on your honeymoon and relax!! And thats when I get to work and edit your wedding negatives – this takes approximately 6 weeks to complete and may take up to 8 weeks during peak wedding season in the summer. When the negatives have been edited – they are then loaded onto a secure-online viewing gallery with a password for your perusal. If you have ordered an album, then we get you into the studio for a viewing session of all your proofs as well as choosing images for the album.
Our studio only uses an assistant if logistics require it. If you prefer to have 2 professional photographers on the day ie. a photographer at the guys and girls at the same time – this can be arranged for an extra fee.
If Daniel dies, becomes hospitalised, or has traumatic family circumstances – then we can guarantee that we won’t attend your wedding. Daniel has two other associate photographers who have been specially trained in Daniel’s style to photograph your day if needed. Your package will be exactly the same as you booked and will not change. You also have the option of a full refund if this happens in case you prefer to find another photographer.
We have duplicates of all our equipment and can also source loan equipment as well at short notice if required. Everything is insured and is serviced regularly. Our studio has 3 backup sources for all photographic digital negatives – remote online data storage, multiple external hard drives, and duplicated compact flash cards. Our cameras have dual write facility for your negatives so your images are safe in case of a card failure.
Our studio typically photographs a wedding utilising a contemporary/documentary/candid style of photography – getting ready, ceremony, post-ceremony and reception (approx. 70% of the wedding) – But there are usually some posed bridal portraits, family portraits and a couples /bridal party portrait session as part of the day (approx. 30% of the wedding). We usually require a list of combinations of family members that are required to be photographed on the day – the family portraits are usually taken post-ceremony. Although Daniel will cater his photography for any schedule or arrangement you desire as long as its arranged at the time of booking.
Usually 5-7 hours photography up until entrance to the reception. Longer coverages including whole reception are available. Shorter coverages are also available depending on date required. Your time can be adapted to your own custom itinerary – example – 3hrs before reception and 4hrs into reception. Extra hours available at an hourly rate or you can choose one of our all-day packages. Extended time frames and custom packages are also available for ethnic weddings (ie. Chinese, Vietnamese, Indian weddings etc). Discounts are available for weddings – Monday to Thursday.
Daniel is a full member of the Australian Institute of Professional Photography and adheres to a high level of quality and business practice that is required by the institute.
After your wedding, we organise all the images that were taken on the day and delete any duplicates, blinking eyes, turned heads etc – the negatives are then edited in Adobe Lightroom for colour, contrast and exposure. All images that are in your wedding album or for print enlargements can be retouched further for skin and extra photoshop effects / general image enhancement.
We take a unlimited images on the day – sometimes duplicates of the same composition to get the best angle (usually best for most candid photography) – these images are trimmed down to provide you around 50-70 fully edited images per hour. No images are left out unless they are duplicates, blinking eyes, turned heads etc.
All wedding coverages include the non-watermarked High Resolution images for self-printing and enlargements. The file size is 5000px on the long edge @ 300PPI. All family portrait and engagement sessions include the web-sized files only with the option to purchase prints, albums and products from our display studio.
