Are you a professional photographer?
Yes, it is my one and only job and generates 100% of my business income. I am a member of the AIPP (Australian Institute of Professional Photographers). I am a registered business (Sole Trader trading as Hobart Wedding Photographer) and my ABN is 48 617 498 637
Do you have public liability insurance?
Yes, I have public liability insurance. Policy number and details can be provided if required.
Are you registered to work with children?
Yes, I am registered to work with vulnerable people in Tasmania and Victoria which means children under the age of 18. Registration to work with vulnerable people as a photographer is mandatory in Tasmania.
Do you travel to other locations?
Yes, I cover all of Tasmania and Victoria and will travel interstate if required.
Can I choose more than one location for my wedding photography?
Yes, we are more than happy to go to a number of locations depending on the time available.
Do you supply high-resolution images on DVD of our wedding day?
The images that you will receive on DVD will contain two types of images, one will be the full high resolution that you can use to print high-quality images and enlargements and the other will be lower resolution images which can be used for email and social media such as Facebook or Twitter etc. You will also have access to a password-protected private online gallery where you can view and order online prints if you wish.
Do you mind if family or friends take their own photos at my wedding?
No, I do not mind at all. It is becoming more common for guests to use tablets and phones held up during the ceremony and often standing in the aisle during the Bride arrival. People using cameras with flash can also affect the photographer from getting those all important shots. This is your call but remember that other non-professional photographers may affect the photos that you receive by getting between us and you the client. Perhaps you could ask your guests to enjoy the ceremony and pull out the iPad/phones after the ceremony has finished and offer to share your photo gallery with them when your photos are completed.
Is there any advantage to having a second photographer and can you provide one?
Yes, I can provide a second photographer for you. The biggest advantage is to get more candid shots, particularly during the ceremony and also while the lead photographer is working with you. You will get a better coverage and more photos by using a second photographer which we can provide.
When can I expect to see my wedding images?
You will usually receive your wedding images about 4 – 6 weeks from your big day. You will receive your images on a DVD as well as an online gallery that is password protected for you to share with family and friends if you wish and where you can order lab quality prints online. This is particularly useful for those people who may not have been able to attend your wedding or live interstate. Read more …….
What is RAW and do you shoot in it?
RAW files are unprocessed data from an image sensor of a digital camera. This image is later transformed by the photographer on their computer by using special post-processing software. All modern professional and most pro-consumer DSLR’s can shoot in RAW and yes I always shoot in RAW.
What kind of equipment do you use?
I have 4 camera kits and use Nikon D810 and D500 professional DSLRs with a combination of prime and zoom lenses and other professional equipment. All the cameras that I use have dual memory cards used in a backup configuration so each camera will have two copies of your wedding photos in case one card fails. I only use premium quality SanDisk memory cards to minimise any data loss.
How much time should we allocate for wedding photography on the day?
As a wedding photographer, I like as much time as I can get. You should allow a minimum of an hour and a half for all family, formal and Bride and Groom photos but this can depend on how many family and friend formal shots that you would like. For remote location, shooting allows extra travelling time and shooting time.
When is the best time to do an outdoor wedding or portrait photography?
The bests times for photography are usually just after sunrise or before sunset. We can photograph at any time of the day but it is harder several hours either side of midday as the light is at it’s harshest and you will tend to squint a lot if in full sun.
Do you have flexible photography packages?
We will create a wedding photography package that suits your particular requirements and quote accordingly.
How many photos do you take?
This depends on the amount of coverage that you choose and whether you have a second photographer but typically you could expect around 150 photos for a 1-hour package and about 350 plus images for a 5-hour package. The number of photos depends on the size of the Bridal party, how many guests and family members, weather, number of locations and a number of other factors.
Do you offer wedding albums?
A wedding album is the best way to present your wedding and will last a lifetime. We offer a wide range of wedding albums and options from quality suppliers. We can also supply quality photo books and canvas prints with up to a 75-year warranty.
Do you do interstate weddings?
Yes, I can travel interstate to shoot a wedding.
How far in advance do I need to book?
You can book as early as you like. I operate on a “first in” basis. A deposit will need to be paid to confirm a booking.
