What to expect with portraits

Our style is very natural and relaxed, with a Fine Art spin on many images. We know how important it is to capture the more traditional group photos of your family and friends, as everyone loves art to be put on your walls for everyone to just say WOW.

We also believe it’s really important to spend some time with you discussing your ideas, clothing, locations if not in studio so we can closely match your expectations. But we don’t want to turn your day into a rigid directing photo-shoot, this is because often the more natural poses can speak 1000 more words then less natural poses. – your portrait is often about celebrating your love and commitment to each other or as a mile stone in your life.

On a typical portrait session you will receive 10-20 photographs, there are no limits - if we take more then you will get more - we don't hold any back.

We'll give you all of the photos that we don't discard. This doesn't mean that we give you every single photograph we take as many are duplication's and test shots. We will often shoot several photos where only one will be used. There are always times when people are blinking or pulling strange faces and so we don’t include those in your final collection.

All of your photographs come with full print rights, this allows you to print your photos else where without needing to come back to us. You can share them with friends and family however and wherever you like and are welcome to choose where to get them printed. Our online gallery has a number of print & download options which you and your guests can use.

Every single one of your photographs will be edited in our own, unique style, with special attention given to each image individually – The online gallery will usually be ready within 2 - 4 weeks of the portrait session date (although this can be up to 6 weeks during peak-times). We’ll let you know an estimated time period once we have backed up your files after the wedding and gone through  our selection process, this way we will have an understanding of how many we maybe able to process for you.
