Frequently Asked Questions


I don't want any posed photos - is this possible?
A: Most couples see photos and think, wow, that looks so natural. But really, some of the most amazing wedding photos are somewhat posed. With this said, we are more than happy to accept any requests the bride and groom make. We are fun, creative photographers and are eager to please.
How long do you need to photograph me at home before the wedding?
A: To ensure your day is relaxed and enjoyable, we recommend you are ready at least one hour prior to you leaving. Making sure your flowers, hair & makeup are done at least half an hour prior to this will allow you enough time to put your dress on and maybe have a glass of champagne before we arrive!
What to do if your day rains!
A: A brides worst fear is having it rain on their wedding day. Did you know some of our best work was taken whilst raining?

Professional family photos - investment?
A: Photos are valuable. They document history and capture a particular moment in time that in years to come, you can look back and remember. A professional can tell the difference between a great photo and a not so good one. We will make you look your best so that you are proud to display your beautiful family portrait.
What happens on a portrait shoot?
A: We will spend an hour with you at Macarthur Park or Camden river where there are many beautiful backdrops we can use to capture you stunning images! By being at the park, it is a nice relaxed setting and perfect for young kids if they need to expend a bit of energy.
Benefits of an engagement shoot?
A: Not everyone spends their time in front of the camera so sometimes it can be a bit daunting (especially for the men!). So by having a pre-wedding shoot, it allows you to feel comfortable in front of the camera and get a bit of practice with what to do on the big day!
What happens if it rains?
A: As we are right in the heart of Camden, it is easy access to under cover locations for your portrait/family shoot. So do not stress if it rains, we can still capture you stunning images!
Studio sittings?
A: Of course! We have our own professional backdrop with a choice of black or white backdrops - perfect for pregnancy shots or newborns as well as family shoots if you're after a more formal look.


What do I wear for a portfolio?
