Q. Where are you based?
A. I am based in Croydon, a lifelong local to the Yarra Valley/Dandenong Ranges, in Victoria, Australia. But, I will happily travel anywhere :)
Q. Do you shoot with a second photographer?
A. Not often. But there are definitely times I think I do need one. If preparation locations are in awkward locations (30 mins + apart), and you don’t feel like getting ready a few hours before you really need to be, then I would recommend a second photographer to help out one of the preparations. 2. If your guest count is more than 150 guests, I can be at one end, and the second photographer can document the other area. 3. They can capture different angles during the ceremony (first kiss + reactions at the same time), and canapés hour too whilst you’re off having some photos.
Q. How long will you be there on our wedding day?
A. You can pick between 5, 8 or 10 hours.
Q. How many photos will we receive and when will they be ready?
A. No two weddings are the same, so I don't have a limit on how many photos you will receive. Delivery of images is usually 3-6 weeks after your wedding. You will receive a private online gallery of all your wedding images, and a personalised surprise package with a USB of high and low resolution versions of your images, all edited and unwatermarked.
Q. Can we get a copy of your pricing/packages?
A. Send me an email and I would love to send it through!
Q. What equipment do you use?
A. I shoot with 2 Full Frame Nikon D850s, and a collection of my favourite fixed prime lenses; 24mm, 35mm, 50mm, 85mm, and a 135mm. But that shouldn't matter. I don't think a 'good' camera makes a 'good' photographer. It is a creative field, and I would recommend checking out your potential photographers photos and personality instead :)
Q. We’re not really into posing… is that a problem?
A. You are honestly not alone on that one. My photography style allows for a relaxed, chilled out experience, to help you feel comfortable immediately, guiding the two of you naturally! I don't pose you in stiff stances, with awkward arm movements and robot posing. However, I am more than happy to offer direction, that is more than okay. I promise to make you feel as comfortable as possible, so we can create some beautiful and honest images together.
Q. Do you offer an engagement / pre wedding shoot?
A. Yes! These sessions are great because they are super chill and relaxed. You get to run around being yourselves and get some beautiful memories of the two of you together. I love these sessions because they are designed to create a relaxed and chilled out experience, capturing your relationship and the connection you have together prior to the big day. Perfect for anyone who doesn’t feel overly comfortable in front of the camera.
Q. Are you the right photographers for us?
A. Not sure! Choosing the right photographer for you is a really important decision. I strongly encourage you to check out my site, recent work and my about me section to see if what I'm about, and my style is a match for your wedding day. I take a natural, documentary approach to photography, keeping things real and authentic without being all up in your face. I love and adore natural light, golden glowing sunsets, and being creative with new locations. If you think these things are all things you would want in your photographer, and how you would like to remember your wedding day, please feel free to get in touch!
Q. We want you Ash! - How do we book in our date with you?
A. Yay! I would be beyond excited to photograph your day. To book in, send me an email and I can send you all the info. I do require a non-refundable retainer fee and a completed booking form.
