How do we book you?
We can secure your wedding date with a completed booking form and a $1,500 booking fee. The process is all done online, so contact us and we’ll send you everything you need to lock us in.
Where are you based, and do you travel?
We’re based in Canberra, Australia. Most of our weddings are in Canberra, country New South Wales, the Southern Highlands, Sydney and the South Coast. We do travel further, and we’ve worked across Australia and abroad including Thailand and Fiji.
Do we meet you before our wedding?
It’s personal preference and completely up to you. Our booking process is all online to make it as easy as possible. Some couples find that they’re busy in the lead up to the wedding, and prefer to organise with us over email.
If you’d like to tell us all about your wedding, we can give you a call at a time that suits you. If you’re local to Canberra and you’d like to see our work in person, we can meet up for a drink to show you our albums and prints. If you’re elsewhere in Australia or internationally, we can meet you over Skype.
Can we order prints and albums through you?
Our Fine Art Albums and Prints are optional extras that you can pre-order, or order after the wedding through our online gallery. Our beautiful heirloom books are custom designed in house, and printed with archival ink on matte paper. They feature lay flat binding, meaning that there are no gutters in the binding and each spread fully opens to lay flat.
Our handcrafted fine art prints are produced using a technique called ‘pigment on cotton rag’. We offer 3 unique smooth matte and textured matte hahnemuhle papers, and they are matted and ready for framing.
Can we do our own printing?
Yes of course! We deliver the edited digital files so that you can print for your own personal use. Prints are perfect thank you gifts for friends and family.
How do you work, and what is it like to have you photograph and film our wedding?
Our approach to photographing and filming is a combination of traditional, documentary and illustrative styles. We do give direction during portrait sessions and the traditional family photos. During bridal party and couple photos we also take an illustrative approach with an emphasis on composition, lighting and background. We photograph and film the rest of the day in a documentary style. We prefer an organic, informal approach rather than staging posed shots. We capture events as they unfold so we can tell the story of your wedding.
How much time do we need for photography and video?
Our approach to photographing and filming is a combination of traditional, documentary and illustrative styles. We do give direction during the traditional family portraits and when photographing and filming with the bridal party. During bridal party and couple photos we also take an illustrative approach with an emphasis on composition, lighting and background. We photograph and film the rest of the day in a documentary style. We prefer an organic, informal approach rather than staging posed shots. We capture events as they unfold so we can tell the story of your wedding.
How much time do we need for photography and video?
We recommend around an hour for pre-ceremony preparation if you’d like this part of the day covered. We suggest 2 minutes per group for formal family portraits following the ceremony (usually half an hour or so), and around 1 hour for location photographs. The ‘golden hour’ before sunset is the best time to photograph and film. We usually stay until the reception formalities have finished up and the dancing has started. Don’t forget to include driving times between locations, and to allow a bit of buffer time throughout the day. Read more about our advice on planning your run sheet and timeline here.
Do we feed you?
Yes, if we are present during the reception we request that you ask the venue to supply crew meals.
How long have you been doing this for?
We’ve got over 15 years combined commercial and creative photography, film & TV experience.
Before weddings, Lyndon spent a decade filming and editing for commercial video and TV, winning two awards at Cannes. He worked with the likes of Taj Burrow, Sally Fitzgibbons, Jenson Button, Ray Martin, Tony Hawk, Craig Lowndes, P!nk, Mal Meninga and Jamie Durie just to name-drop a few.
Anthea was a photographer at the National Library of Australia, and has been working as a documentary photographer since 2010 for international not-for profit organisations. Her passion for documentary photography has influenced the way we approach weddings, and allows us to tell an authentic and natural story.
Do you give RAW unedited images?
We don’t let raw files out of the studio for multiple reasons, the main one being quality control. Raw files are un-finished products, and if someone other than us processes them from digital files into final images, then the final image/video quality may be compromised. The alternatively processed final images could then be attributed to us, and could be damaging to our work and brand.
The photos we supply are the highest quality final images from the day, and the full resolution files can be printed between A3-A2 lossless (but can go much larger and still retain exceptional quality).
What are RAW video files?
We film hundreds of short 5-10 second clips during a wedding day to use in editing a highlights video. These hundreds of individual files are the raw footage, and are unusable except for the purpose of editing into a video. We don’t film any part of the day continuously. Instead, we roam around to get cinematic and engaging footage from different angles.
We do deliver an extended edit of the ceremony and reception speeches.
If you’d like parts of the day filmed in their entirety as a record and you don’t need the footage professionally edited, we’d recommend setting up a gopro or similar camera on a small tripod.
