How Much Are Your Packages?
When shooting your wedding our primary goal is to capture images that invoke the same feelings of joy, excitement and elation you and your guests are experiencing on such an extraordinary occasion. You can relive these feelings every time you see your wedding photographs from just $2750. A 1/3 non-refundable deposit is required on booking to secure your date and ensure that Karen is available to shoot your wedding. The deposit is then taken off the balance of your photography package.
What will we get?
Every couple receives the following:
Comprehensive Pre-Wedding Consultation
Wedding photography is vitally important to your wedding day. It is for this reason that Karen sets aside a special time and place to meet and go over absolutely everything you might need to know. Over the years Karen has attended many weddings and as a result has significant insight into what works and what doesn’t. It is a good opportunity for you to nut out some of the details you may not be quite sure on as well as put together a plan for your photography to ensure that nothing is left to chance.
Your wedding story told in Stunning High Resolution Images on USB
Karen creates a collection of images specifically tailored to tell your wedding story, perfectly from start to finish. These image files are then passed on to our professional image editor who ensures every file is consistently stunning and worthy of being hung on a wall. Karen then presents you with 2 USB’s. 1 of the high-resolution images in color and another with all the same images processed in black & white.
Can we have an engagement shoot?
Yes. In fact we strongly encourage it! An engagement shoot is an excellent way for us to get to know each other! It also helps Karen learn the best approach to photographing you and helps you to become more comfortable in front of the camera. Engagement images are also useful in the lead up to your wedding, perfect for use on save the date cards, invitations or even as details at your wedding.
I prefer a relaxed candid style, is this what we can expect from you?
Yes. For most of the day I will stand back and let things unfold in front of my camera. Only during the family and formal portraits will I give some direction to help everyone look their best. For the most part we just have fun.
Do You Travel?
Absolutely! In fact we love too! Karen will travel anywhere in the world to shoot your wedding. Because we are located in a small country town travelling is essential for our business. It is for this reason that the majority of our weddings are not local.
How Much Does Travel Cost?
This depends largely on your location, but the majority of the time there is no extra charge involved. Get in touch and we will look into it and get back to you :)
Do you edit your images?
Yes and no. We have a professional retoucher who’s job it is to edit your collection and ensure that all your images are stunning and consistent. It also helps us get your images to you far sooner then most other wedding photographers.
Our albums are assembled by a team of highly skilled bookbinders, designed by Karen and hand
crafted using the finest materials imported from Europe. Your album will capture the joy of your wedding while telling the story of your day and forever take you back to the happiest day of you life.
Do we sign a contract when we book?
Yes. Our solicitor has designed a contract specifically for your needs that protects both yourself and Karen. Karen will go over this with you during your consultation to ensure that you understand exactly what is involved before signing your life away.
Your photos are amazing, but you are over our budget, are you able to decrease the price?
Unfortunately no. Due to high demand we have found that it is not necessary to offer discounts. We offer our clients the best possible images, products and service. In order to do so it is necessary to charge an appropriate amount.
Why do some other photographers have cheaper prices?
Our collections are priced to reflect the quality of photographs and service we offer. Cheaper photographers may; photograph only as a hobby, work with out insurance, have low quality equipment, be inexperienced and possibly all of the above.
How many photographs do you take at weddings?
First and foremost our goal is to tell the story of your wedding day in high quality images. Every wedding is unique so there is no set amount of images taken. We do however guarantee a minimum amount according to the package option you choose.
How many weddings do you shoot in a year?
In order to ensure all our clients receive the best possible service I have made the decision to limit the amount of weddings I shoot per year. As a result our dates are limited, so it is recommended that you book as soon as you can to ensure you don’t miss out on having Karen photograph your wedding.
Are we able to get a copy of the high resolution image files?
Yes. You will receive the final collection of images on USB in both color and black and white.
Can we provide you with a list of photographs we want taken?
Yes, absolutely. While our coverage is very thorough, there may be some aspects we are unaware of e.g your pen pal from Holland has made a special trip for your wedding and you would like a photograph of the both of you. You will receive a form in your welcome pack to help make this easier.
What are we allowed to do with our digital files?
Provided the guidelines within the contract are upheld, any images you receive are yours to do with as you please. For example, making prints, emailing or post them on Facebook. It is entirely up to you!
Do you back up your images?
My camera is recording to 2 memory cards at one time, so I have an instant back up. As soon as I can I copy the images to 2 separate hard drives. I then keep your images on file for a minimum of 5 years.
