Where are you based?
Auckland, New Zealand
Do you travel for weddings?
YES! I would be honoured! Travel costs vary depending on the location. To fly it's return flights and accomodation for the night prior to the wedding and the night of. But if its drivable from Auckland then costs are calculated using the standard 80c pr/km round trip + accomodation.
Can we meet up before my big day?
Absolutely. If you're not in Auckland we can always arrange a video chat. I would love to meet you!
Do you bring a second shooter?
As of right now, I do everything myself - but one day I hope to bring on a second shooter!
A 20% non refundable deposit is required to secure your wedding date. The rest of the payment is due 1 week prior to your wedding.
How much time do I need to put aside for filming on the day?
I will be 'ghosting' the photographers schedule most of the day. But I may whisk you aside for 5 minutes if I feel I need it.
How long until I receive my wedding film?
No longer than 6 weeks. I put my heart and soul into these films so I like to take my time on each individual project.
Can I hire you for both makeup AND film on the day?
What about makeup AND photography?
ok how about.... photography AND film?
I offer a special package for this - full day of photography coverage plus you get a 5 min highlight film of your day. Please email me if you'd like to know more about this package :)
How do I book in a makeup trial and how do they work?
I HIGHLY recommend booking your makeup trial on the same day as your hair trial/dress fitting. This way you can see the full look before the big day and make any necessary changes. For trials I usually do half/half - two different looks. This way you can take 100 selfies after our appointment and see what you loved/didn't love. To book a trial please message me the date and time that suits you. I can come to you for a small petrol fee. Makeup trials cost the same as on the day. E.g If you've booked me for a bridal trial and I quoted $100, the trial will also be $100. (if you choose to have a trial, that is!) :)
Do you do hair?
I'M TERRIBLE AT HAIR :(
How long have you been doing makeup & are you qualified?
I have been doing makeup for 8 years. I received a Certificate In Makeup Artistry Level 4 in 2011; and in 2013 a Diploma in Special FX - Level 5.
What sort of photography do you do?
I don't class myself as a particular photographer/filmer - I do anything from pregnancy to musicians to weddings. I'm open to anything!
Can you take photos of my dog?
YEAH I CAN
Was that last question seriously asked frequently?
When is the best time to take photos of my newborn?
Under 2 weeks is best as they are mostly sleeping and settled. These shoots will be done in the comfort of your own home :)
Like most photographers, copyright remains with me, but you are free to upload your images to Facebook (or any social media). You can also feel free to print your photos as many times as you like!
