Wedding Photographer Services

As a wedding photographer I understand the importance of your wedding day and I know how long those memories will last. I aim to take photographs that will tell the story of your wedding day – capturing the range of emotions – the laughter, the tears, and the love as the day unfolds. My wedding photographs are an illustration of moments that tell the story of your wedding day. I know I have been successful when the bride and groom look at their photos and recall exactly what they were thinking and feeling when each photo was taken. Every wedding is unique and has different requirements and needs, which is why I like to meet with you beforehand to discuss your ideas – this is important to me.

Before the ‘Big Day’

I think it is very important to get to know each couple before the big day. It is an  huge honor to be asked to record your wedding day for you, so I like to meet with you before the day of the wedding where we will discuss together:

  • What you expect
  • Your preferred photographic style
  • What you feel is important for me to capture
  • Who you would like to see in your wedding photographs
  • Where in the Wairarapa your wedding will be held so that I can do some location planning beforehand

I want my participation in your wedding to be as relaxed and enjoyable as possible!

Photographing The ‘Big Day’

You’ll receive a mixture of spontaneous action photos as well as more traditional group photos of family and wedding attendants. I try to personalize every wedding, so the more ideas you can give me about the style of photos you want, the better the end result. Tip: Having a member of the wedding party or family to help organize various group photos can make things so much more smoothly and ensures no one is forgotten. All of my wedding photographs will include photos of the following:

  • The bride and bridal party preparations
  • Photographs of the bride and parents
  • The groom and groomsmen before the wedding ceremony begins
  • Candid impromptu photos of your guests
  • The arrival of the bride
  • Your family and guests at the wedding ceremony
  • The bridal party at your chosen location(s)
  • Cutting of the cake and speeches

After the Wedding

After I have uploaded the files to my computer I usually spend approximately 16 hours looking through the photographs putting them into a sequence that will tell the story of your day, treating the contrast, colour, and creating black and white images of each one. Once I have finished enhancing your photos I make high-resolution files of the photos and burn them onto a personalized CD, which you get to keep. I will also upload them into a password protected online client wedding gallery on my website – which you, your family and friends can access. I will have all of your photos posted into the password protected online gallery within two weeks of the wedding day. This will allow your family and friends to peruse and order images online at their convenience. After the wedding we will meet to discuss your wedding album and print options. Price: $2000 (incl. GST)
