Hey there Ashley + Alex,

Thanks so much for meeting with me to go over the detail of your wedding day plans. 

As I mentioned tonight, I prefer to meet with all of my couples as early as possible as there is much to cover, which unfortunately makes me look like I have verbal diarrhoea, but there is much to consider and I want you both stepping away from this meeting well informed, and able to make an educated decision about choosing the right photographer/ videographer for your day. So I apologise for the super long catch up, but I hope you’ve come away inspired and excited about the planning of your day.

Below I’ve compiled a booklet with some information about booking with me, how to secure me for your date, some general questions about the booking process, after you’ve secured me for your day and what happens after your actual wedding day. Some of this is just to reiterate what we discussed but I thought best to put it in writing for your reference.

There’s a fair amount to cover off with you and to ensure that you know about every step in the time that we work together to ensure you have the absolute best wedding day that you both want, this booklet is yours to access at anytime.

At the bottom of the document is the schedule of your day (which is only indicative at this point) to assist with the planning of your other vendors and the flow of your day.

The final couple of pages are your quote based on our discussion and the options available to you.

The middle “Photo/Video’ package is what I think you may be more likely to go with which includes 20% off any A La Carte items (Highlight video) taking the your quote to $3,840.

I’v also included examples of recent weddings where I’ve shot both photos and Video at the same time and some where I’ve just done photography.

This quote is valid until Wednesday April 17th, 2019.



These are finely tailored weddings where I’ve worked with my couples in fine detail regarding what their vows will look like, how much they’ve personally written and put into them and how much of your backstory the celebrant will include in the ceremony. The speeches during the reception can also have some really great content so I work closely with my couples to determine what portion of the audio they’d prefer is used in the 5 minute highlight video.

The video is supplied as a highlights package so I generally don’t deliver full ceremony or full speeches within that highlights reel, but can accomodate your needs on a case by case basis. For the video filming I capture as much of the natural moments and also some structured, set up shots but these will still be candid and as natural as possible.


This first example is my last wedding of last year at Caitlin and Rob’s wedding at Yarra Ranges Estate. I wasn’t the videographer but did shoot some drone footage during the day a the videographer they hired didn’t have one (WTH??? right!!!!)


  • This next example is one of my favourite city based weddings, Ally & Steve:


  • This next example is probably one of my favourite non-city weddings but love the getting shots, and sunset photos:


  • The next is Rachel & Dylan’s city wedding


  • The final example is Sarah & Dragan’s wedding

As great as having the internet at your finger tips can be, it can often leave you in a worse position when finding a great wedding vendor. So I’ve compiled a list of wedding vendors that I call my friends. These are wedding experts that I’ve worked with numerous times over the years and only recommend these businesses because I believe that we all have a similar approach and work ethic in giving our couples the best experience ever.
