Where are you based and do you travel?
A. Hey there! I'm currently based in Auckland, New Zealand, but I love to travel! Whether you're planning an elopement or a destination wedding, count me in!
I'm an adventurous soul and an adrenaline junkie, always daydreaming of exploring new parts of the world. I'll do my best to find the most cost-effective way to get to you so that we can capture your story in the most beautiful way possible.
For weddings and portraits outside of Auckland, there will be a minimum charge for travel costs, accommodation, and car rentals on top of our standard package prices. For example, for weddings or portraits in nearby cities, a petrol or driving charge of $.70c per km will apply.
However, if you're based around Auckland, there will be no travel fee required! The only exception is if you're on Waiheke Island, where ferry and transfer costs are not included in our pricing.
Let's chat! I'm always happy to help and excited to hear from you.
When will we get our photos?
A. fter your photo session, I'll provide you with an online gallery link within 4-8 weeks (and sometimes even less, depending on the season when we shoot). You'll have access to all the photos from the session, which you can download, share, and choose your favorites.
Additionally, you'll have the option to order prints directly from the online gallery, making it easy for you to get your hands on high-quality prints of your favorite photos. So sit back, relax, and wait for your stunning photos to arrive!
How many photos do you give to your clients?
A. The number of photos you receive will depend on the length of the session and the number of events or moments we capture.
As a general rule, you can expect to receive around 50-100 edited images per one-hour session. However, the final number may vary based on various factors, including the type of session, number of participants, and locations visited.
For longer sessions, such as 12 hours, you can expect to receive an average of 1000+ edited images, while 8-hour sessions typically result in 800+ images. For shorter sessions, like 5 hours, expect to receive around 300-400 edited images, and for 3-hour sessions, around 150-200+ images.
Regardless of the session length, I'll meticulously select and edit the best images to tell your unique story in a beautiful and authentic way.
