How far in advance should I book?
Weddings at least 12 months in advance for the peak summer season. Winter is more flexible.
Family shoots should be booked 3-4 weeks in advance. Limited weekends are available during summer.
Commercial Headshots and Business Branding should be booked 1-2 weeks in advance. This allows for planning, booking hair & make-up and also keep in mind allowing 3-7 working days for final digital delivery.
What should I wear?
Please refer to the commercial or family page for tips on what to wear.
Can you photoshop that out?
Natural skin retouching and white backdrop clear-cutting are included in my commercial headshot packages.
All other high-end retouching requests are an additional cost to my photography packages and will be invoiced as per request.
Editing included is colour correction, exposure and cropping.
How many photos do I get?
The number of photos you receive is listed in the package info and your quote.
When do I get my photos?
Commercial – within 1 to 2 weeks.
Family – 2-4 weeks.
Weddings – 4-8 weeks depending on how many hours coverage there was.
Products and albums take additional time and can be arranged after you receive your images.
Do you travel for work?
Yes, I do. A travel fee will be changed for more than 50 km outside of Whangarei for Family & Commercial work and for more than 100 km outside of Whangarei for Weddings. Please see my T&C’s.
Will my photos go online?
My business relies heavily on sharing my latest work to book future jobs so I would love to share some highlights from our shoot, a few finished headshots, or a wedding blog.
I respect that not everyone wants their images online and that in some cases it’s not appropriate to do so.
Please let me know if you don’t want your photos shared or alternatively if you would LOVE me to blog your wedding, share a highlights video from your family photoshoot or share your headshot with a link to your business. Lets chat.
Do you have a studio?
I have studio access for commercial headshots. All other photoshoots are taken on location.
Do you do video?
No, I don’t but I can recommend wedding videographers or commercial video production teams.
Do you have a second shooter?
Professional second shooters are hired on a job by job basis depending on what is required.
Do you have insurance?
Yes, I do, My gear is covered and I also have public liability insurance.
