WEDDING Q & A
What gear do you use? Do you have an assistant?
I shoot with two top-of-the-line Canon 5DMarkIII bodies equipped with a wide variety of lenses (I prefer primes because they give that extra “pop” to the images). I also have full lighting gear for receptions. I often shoot by myself but sometimes will hire an assistant or second-shooter based upon the size of the wedding and my discretion.
Can we meet?
Due to the nature of destination weddings, we are not usually able to meet in person, but I’d be happy to talk with you via FaceTime or Skype prior to your arrival in Fiji. I usually arrive 15 minutes early on the wedding day in order to chat with you and get to know you a bit before I dive into photography.
How do we book?
Let me know you’d like to book and I’ll check availability on your date. If I’m available I’ll send you a booking form to fill out and sign. I request a non-refundable retainer of $500 FJD(or equivalent) to hold your date.
When will we receive our images?
Great care is taken to ensure that the wedding images are up to the standard which you find in my portfolio; edited and selected in order to tell the story of your wedding day. This process usually takes anywhere from 2-4 weeks. Once finished, you will receive a link to a sneak peek. Your images will be couriered to you on USB. Or, if you’re in Fiji for a while after the wedding, I can sometimes meet you at the airport with your USB.
*A $100 digital download discount may be applied on the Simplicity Package which means your images are delivered via download from an online gallery.
What other customizations & photography can I request?
I can do slideshows set to music, photo collages, GoPro video with a second shooter (works well for underwater sessions), underwater portrait sessions, family portrait sessions, etc. Contact me for more information.
