Hi there. I’m John. I’m glad you’ve found me . Thanks for taking the time to check out my website.
I feel super lucky to do what I do for a living. I get a real buzz out of working with my couples to create beautiful, long-lasting memories of such an important day in their lives. I’m a big sucker for vulnerability, belly laughs and heartfelt tears. I’m not big into posing or orchestrating fake moments, instead I prefer to capture moments just as they happen. Raw, honest, genuine.
If that’s the kind of approach you’re looking for on your wedding day drop me an email via the contact page to enquire about having me shoot your wedding.
We’re getting married in the city/countryside/at the beach/in a castle/interstate/overseas.
I’m based in Melbourne, but love to travel. Let me know where you’re planning on getting hitched and lets see if we can work together to make it happen! I might be able to tie in a visit to my long lost uncle to make things more cost effective.
How much do you charge?
Packages start at $4400 for all-day coverage. Shoot me an email via the contact page for a full price list.
What do you mean by all-day coverage?
I’ll be there to capture the whole shebang from getting ready right through to drunken dance floor shenanigans. Once everyone starts to get their drunk face on, that’s my cue to leave.
Do you have an assistant or second shooter with you on the day?
I shoot about 80% of my weddings solo. While I’m well practised and confident to capture your wedding on my own, I can only be in one place at a time. So if you’re planning on having more than 150 guests or are getting ready on opposite sides of town, it might be worth considering having a second shooter along for the day. I have a pool of talented photographers to choose from. Shoot me an email to ask about pricing.
How many photos will I get?
You can expect to receive about 500-700 individually edited high-res photos of your wedding day. I’ll give you both print and web versions so you can update your profile pic or email some to Aunty Betty.
How long after the wedding until I can see some photos?
My standard turnaround time for delivery is 5-6 weeks. In busier months like November and March it will be closer to 7 weeks. The first thing you’ll receive from me is a link to your online slideshow. Don’t worry, I won’t send you the link until after 7pm to save you the temptation of peeking before you get home. The first time you see your photos I want you to be on the couch together with a cup of tea and a box of tissues. Your discs will follow in the mail the week after you receive your slideshow.
What about albums?
I design beautiful fine art books that are made in the US. They’re the best you can get. Every page sits flat when opened and the quality of the print and the paper is something else. I’ve got some samples I can show you when we meet. They’re super hardy too. They’ll stand the test of time long after the kids have grown up. The design process is collaborative so you’ll get your say. I’ll pre-design it to save time, but then you’ll have a chance to add or remove photos as you see fit.
Do you shoot same-sex weddings?
I sure do. I believe love has no boundaries so if you’re in love, then I’ll take photos of it!
Do you shoot video?
I don’t, but I know a couple of awesome people who do. Jared and Jacob from Humdrum Films are two of my favourite people. They make amazing videos and share the same laid-back, non-invasive approach. Check out their work here.
