I've been photographing weddings and adventurous couples since 2008, giving me many seasons of experience and a heap of local knowledge, all wrapped in a super relaxed personality.
Frequently Asked Questions
Where is that famous location on the peak overlooking the lake?
It's an incredible location in Wanaka called Roy's Peak (or Coromandel Peak). Yes, you need helicopter to access it, and I have packages that include a helicopter charter to get there. Email mefor more info.
How much do you charge?
You can get an indication of my wedding and session prices here.
How long have you been photographing weddings?
I shot my first wedding in January 2008 and have been shooting ever since!
Can we meet beforehand?
Definitely. I think getting to know you (and you getting to know me) is really important. In most cases, couples travel in from out of town so often we don't meet until very close to your session date, which is why I encourage a catch up over Skype or a phone call go over your plans.
How will be photos be delivered and how many will I receive?
It varies from session to session, however for a full wedding day, you can expect approximately 600 images in a mixture of black and white and colour. These will be available at full resolution via a private online gallery.
I'm not local, can you recommend any locations?
All part of the service. There's endless locations accessible by car, on foot or by helicopter. Let me know what type of setting is special to you and we can design a session to match.
Do you bring along a second photographer?
By default it's just me, however I have a great network of talented photographers I shoot with. If you would like a second shooter, let me know at the time of booking.
Do you travel for weddings?
Absolutely! Although home is in Wanaka, I'm regularly up in Canterbury and throughout New Zealand & Australia for photo sessions and weddings.
Deposits & balances. How does that work?
To complete your booking, I'll provide an invoice for a date reservation fee (33%) and a request for signature on an agreement. The second 33% is due 4 months out from your session date and the final balance is due two weeks leading up to your session.
Can you shoot a roll of film as well?
Yep, sure can! It’s a great way to add a selection of images with a slightly edgy, raw look. You can add this on at anytime before your session. My favourite is Ilford XP2 35mm (black and white).
Can you recommend any other wedding vendors?
Yep! I've worked with many talented people including venues, hairdressers, makeup artists and florists who I fully trust. You can find them on my vendors page.
