HOW MUCH DOES WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY/VIDEOGRAPHY COST? As all wedding celebrations are unique, photography and videography will also be different according to your need and vision. I am always happy to tailor a unique à la carte collection just for you. However, my wedding photography packages start at $2900 but most of my couples invest in my Photo + Video packages which start at $5900. HOW MUCH IS THE DEPOSIT TO SECURE OUR DATE? All packages require a $500 deposit to secure your date, and the balance is due 4 weeks before your wedding date. WHAT PHOTOGRAPHY AND VIDEOGRAPHY EQUIPMENT DO YOU USE? DO YOU HAVE BACKUP? I have all the necessary high-end professional photography and videography gear to capture the beautiful and memorable moments of your day. But if you really want to know I shoot with Nikon's latest Full Frame Z series cameras, five in total, including backups. DO YOU PROVIDE ONLY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY SERVICES? My main focus is Wedding Photography and Videography in Cairns, Port Douglas, Palm Cove, Atherton and Tasmania. But depending on the time of the year and workload I also offer Engagment Photography. HOW EARLY SHOULD WE BOOK YOUR WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY OR VIDEOGRAPHY SERVICES? Wedding photography tends to book earlier than videography. It’s better to book your photographer as soon as you have set the wedding date, venue and your heart on the artist behind the camera that you would like to have to capture your wedding day. In saying that, if I am available, I can take your booking with as short notice as 48 hours. HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO RECEIVE OUR WEDDING PHOTOS AND VIDEO? The turnaround time for your wedding photos and video can vary. On average, you can expect to receive your fully edited wedding photos within 4-6 weeks, and your wedding video within 8 weeks after your wedding day.

While they're not typically included in the wedding package, I can create a custom package that includes an engagement session if you desire. DO YOU TRAVEL FOR DESTINATION WEDDINGS? Yes, I'm available to travel to destinations beyond Cairns and its surrounding areas. Whether you're planning a tropical beach wedding or a scenic mountain celebration, I'm prepared to capture your destination wedding anywhere you envision. CAN WE MEET TO DISCUSS OUR WEDDING VISION BEFORE BOOKING? I'd be delighted to meet with you to discuss your wedding vision and ensure that we're a great match for capturing your special day.

How to choose your Cairns and Port Douglas Wedding photographer

Your wedding day is one of the most important and memorable days of your life.


You want to capture every moment and emotion with beautiful photos and videos that you can cherish for years to come.


But how do you choose the right wedding photographer for your Cairns and Port Douglas wedding?

There are many factors to consider when looking for a wedding photographer, but here are three main ones that you should pay attention to:

3 Things to Consider

The experience.

Choose a wedding photographer who is professional, reliable, and skilled. You need someone adept at handling different lighting situations, weather conditions, and unexpected challenges. Someone who delivers high-quality photos and videos that align with your expectations and vision.

Consider if photography is their full-time job. This ensures they are dedicated and passionate about their craft, offering their full attention and care.

Ask how many weddings they’ve shot in their career. This reflects their level of expertise and exposure to different scenarios. For instance, someone doing photography part-time for 10 years may have shot 10 weddings per year, while someone full-time might average 40-60 weddings annually.

As a Cairns and Port Douglas wedding photographer, I’ve shot over 250 weddings, dealing with various sizes, themes, and locations. I’ve managed challenges like rain, wind, and heat, always delivering stunning results my clients adore.

The editing style.

Choose a photographer with a consistent, appealing editing style that matches your taste. Someone who enhances the beauty and mood of your photos and videos authentically, creating a cohesive look for your album and video.

Assess their editing style through their portfolio and social media. Look for composition, colours, contrast, sharpness, and the overall feel of their work. Ensure it resonates with you and that you can see yourself in their photos and videos.

Editing styles vary. Some prefer a moody, dramatic style, while others like a bright, airy feel, or a natural, realistic approach. My style is timeless, true to colour, and editorial. I aim for elegant, classy, and sophisticated photos and videos that are also lively, vibrant, and fun. I preserve natural colours and details while enhancing them subtly to make your photos and videos stand out.

The personality.

Choose a wedding photographer whose personality complements yours. Someone who makes you feel comfortable and confident, and who captures the best in you and your partner. Someone who communicates well and handles situations professionally and gracefully.

Get to know their personality through a personal meeting or video call. Check if they’re friendly, easy to talk to, attentive, respectful, and enthusiastic about your wedding.

Read reviews from their previous clients. This offers insights into their reliability, creativity, and overall work ethic.

Described by clients as approachable, down-to-earth, and kind-hearted, I love connecting with new people and capturing their genuine emotions. I strive to create a relaxed, enjoyable atmosphere, working respectfully with guests and vendors, always going above and beyond to ensure your wedding day is a triumph.
