FAQ

Hey there! Welcome! How is it out there? Stressful? Overwhelming? Well, all of that ends here. I know you've got a lot on your plate, so let's get started. 

Russ, what's your style?

Happy, relaxed, real.

I'm a happy person by nature and your wedding day will be one of the happiest days of your life, so this is the central theme in all of my work - warmth, happiness and images that make you smile.

My background is in photojournalism, so from an early age I understood the importance of telling a story through a single image. The same goes with wedding photography. For images to be believeable, interactions between the couple need to be genuine and real. The couple needs to be genuinely enjoying themselves in the moment. My style could be described as photojournalistic, happy, relaxed, unobtrusive, natural, honest and REAL. I treat every wedding like it’s the most important shoot I’ll ever do, and I strive for perfection. You deserve nothing less.

Where are you based?

I'm based in Jervis Bay on the NSW South Coast, but my works takes me all over the country, from the South Coast to the Southern Highlands, from Sydney to the Hunter Valley, and everywhere in between. I'm also available to travel interstate and internationally.

Will you be photographing our wedding?

Yes. I am the principal photographer at every wedding. I also bring along a highly experienced second photographer for all of the big moments, which is inclusive in all packages. Why two of us? Because no matter how skilled a wedding photographer is, I believe it's impossible for one person to capture all of those intricate moments of your wedding day. The best examples are during the ceremony. While I’m intensely focused on capturing your trip down the aisle, my second photographer is busy documenting your partner’s emotions as he/she sees you for the first time. While I’m capturing the exchanging of vows, the second camera is focused on your family's reactions. That’s what this day is all about – those candid expressions of love and joy – and they cannot be missed.

What’s included?

Every wedding photography package includes two consultations, two photographers, a personal website featuring all of your wedding images in a beautiful and downloadable format (Web & High-Resolution), and a private online slideshow for you to share with family and friends. If you would like a more physical reminder of your wedding day, I have partnered with Queensberry Albums – a world leader in album production – to offer you exquisite handcrafted wedding albums made using the finest quality materials from around the globe, as well as prints, frames and presentation boxes.

Russ, gimme’ some peace of mind!

This is no sales pitch. In fact, I’m probably the most hopeless salesperson to ever exist - it’s just not in my nature. But even if you don’t decide to book me as your photographer, please make sure your chosen photographer has the following safeguards in place, which I offer for every single wedding.

- 2 Photographers / 2 vehicles: All of my packages are inclusive of two photographers (myself and a highly experienced second photographer). Typically we both travel separately, so we also have two vehicles at our disposal.

- 2 Cameras: I use the highest quality professional Nikon equipment, however even the best gear can malfunction. For this reason, I use two seperate professional cameras on every wedding.

- 2 Memory Cards: I use the highest quality memory cards, however even the best memory cards can fail. For this reason, both of my cameras are fitted with dual memory cards, so your images are being backed simultaneously on the second card.

- 3 Hard Drives: I think you’re getting the drift here - technology can fail. For this reason, I have a thorough backup process for every wedding. Firstly, every wedding is stored safely on my main desktop computer. Secondly, every wedding is then backed-up to an external hard drive, which is stored on-site. Lastly, every wedding is also backed-up on a second external hard drive, which is stored at different location.

Hopefully that gives you some peace of mind. Please don’t entrust unexperienced photographers or family friends with capturing one of the most important days of your life if they don’t have the proper safeguards in place.
