Wedding Videography Q&A
How are you different from other Videographers?
Quality over quantity. I only work with an exclusive number of couples each year and won’t outsource my work to third parties.
My films immerse the viewer in the story using emotion and beautiful, candid, natural composition. No effects or computer generated transitions between shots, just raw storytelling and well composted shots using what nature gives me on your day; working as a team with your photographer to make the recording of your day run effortlessly.
How long will you attend our wedding day for?
I usually allow 10-11 hours. The story of your wedding day begins long before the day itself, sometimes I will choose to attend the rehearsal or venue preparations. Not only am I there to only capture the formalities of a wedding ceremony, I’m there to document the location itself and it’s beautiful surrounds, family, friends as well as you both. Being there all day allows me to tell the whole story, capturing the raw beauty, emotions and atmosphere of your Wedding.
How much and how do I book my date?
If you haven’t contacted me already to you can check if your wedding date is available here, I’d love to know more about what you have planned for your day so I can give you more information. A $500 payment is required to secure our agreement for your day.
Do you travel?
I love to! You can find me frequently around The Whitsundays and the South East of Queensland, sometimes even further abroad, contact me for my travel rates.
How long does it take to get our film?
Editing is as much an art-form as the filming process. Because I don’t outsource the editing to a third party, all completed inclusions can take up to within 6 months. If you were after a quicker turnaround (4 weeks) a priority charge of $1,550 will apply, this offer is limited to one client per month to allow for the workload.

Can we choose the music?
I get this question frequently, and the answer in most cases is no. Let me explain why. If I use a song that I haven’t purchased a license for (That’s a big no-no), it will usually get removed from being published online automatically and I could get in big trouble. I have access to a beautiful library of songs that are legal to use for distribution. In addition to keeping my conscience clear, I love the idea of providing you a unique soundtrack to your wedding film. It gives your film an authentic feel and that’s what you want, trust me.
Will there be formal agreement (contract) in writing and are you insured?
Yes and yes.
Can I pay with Credit Card or can you do a payment plan?
Yes, both online or in-person. Please contact me to discuss your requirements.
Can family and friends contribute toward a film as a gift?
A registry is a great idea, please contact me to arrange this.
What other services do you offer?
You have the option to purchase RAW footage up to a year after the wedding. I typically come home with 3-5 hours of footage and audio so, for those of you that want to see everything, the option is there. For full RAW footage it is an additional $450, this includes a complementary hard drive and postal/hand delivery.
Also I love to do Engagements and boudoir, family, maternity, birth and newborn to special events and business marketing. Anything that requires a story to be told through film, reach out to me for a chat if you have something in mind x
