Wedding FAQs

How far in advance do we need to reserve our date?

As soon as you and your fiancé decide that you would like me to photograph your wedding. It all comes down to availability and with most things, the sooner the better.

We don’t arrive on the island until the day before our wedding, how will we have our pre consultation?

We can schedule a Skype conversation or even a chat over the phone. I would really love to meet with you guys in person before your big day but if you are unable to do so, technology is there for us 100%

I really want to do the Trash the Dress session, but I don’t want to ruin my dress.

I’ve never had a client that ruined their dress from a trash the dress session. This is simply a great opportunity to put back on your wedding attire and get some stunning images with a more relaxed approach and setting as opposed to on your wedding day. I encourage this session BIG TIME!

How many images do you provide and how many are edited?

Each of my packages specify how many final images you will be receiving. This is an average minimum amount. I don’t let this number hold me back when editing my work. Each additional image outside of your chosen package is US$12.50, however if there are a TON extra (which they usually are!) I offer a crazy special to receive ALL the final images. For weddings 8 hours and more – all final images are yours at no additional fee!

How will we see these images if we are leaving the same day as the wedding?

Each package has a different turn around. For example, my 2-HR package offers a 2 week turnaround whereas my 8-HR package is closer to 6-8 weeks. Once your images are ready, I will upload them to an FTP site for you to view and share with your friends + family. These images are resized for online viewing and social media only. I will then post your high resolution images to you via registered post. If you require the high resolution images before the 1-2 week time it will take for this memory key to get to you, I am more than happy to upload your high resolution images via Dropbox for you to download and save straight to your computer. Need your images sooner? Add 50% to your chosen package and receive those bad boys 2 business days after your wedding.

Can we use these final images to make prints & do they have your logo across them?

These images are high resolution jpegs which you can print as many times as you like at whatever sizes you wish. My logo will NOT be on or across these images; these are yours to do with them what you wish. It is what you paid for 😉

What methods of payment do you accept?

I accept cash, cheque or wire transfer. All necessary information will be emailed over to you as soon as you let me know which method you would like to proceed with.

Do you also provide videography services?

No, I am strictly a photographer. I can, however, recommend an amazing videographer on the island, Bianca Hadeed of I Do Video Art. You can check out her work on www.idovideoart.com or email her at Bianca@Idovideoart.com

Are you able to assist with any other areas regarding our wedding?

Of course! Once your 30% booking fee is paid and your date is then set in stone, I am happy to assist in many vendor referrals as far as the flowers, locations, hairstylist, makeup artist etc. For all transportation and/or tour bookings may I highly recommend Facilitators Unlimited Inc. Fantastic service with incredibly friendly staff.  They offer transfers for you and your wedding party to and from your hotel/cruise terminal and even include a photo stop at one of our many fantastic locations on the island. You may check them out at www.facilitatorsunlimited.com.

I’m not very photogenic and am not 100% comfortable in front of a camera.

Ohhh, if I had a dollar everytime someone has told me this.
My approach is subtle and my style is photojournalistic. Relax. Be you, and let me capture your story. If you are doing an awkward face or position, I promise to be blunt and help you out 😉

Could I have the RAW images? I have an uncle who knows a thing or two about editing.

NO.

Do you offer Wedding Albums?

I sure do! A stunning range of Italian leather with varying grain size, texture + colour. I also offer premium linens and Japanese Silks. You can choose from a selection of rich colours and patterns. These albums are multi-generational – they will stand the test of time and be around for your children, grandchildren and great grandchildren (and so on) to enjoy!

We love your work and want to book you, how do we proceed?

Fantastic! The next step is securing your date with a 30% booking fee. Once this has been paid, you + your partners name is written big and bold on my calendar and we can dive into the many details of your wedding day.
