FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Following are answers to some frequently asked questions. However, if you have a question that we havent answered below, please feel free to email us and we would be happy to answer the same.

How are your prices so reasonable?
  • We wish we had a dollar for every time we’ve been asked this! But here’s the thing – We have been shooting weddings for over 7 years now and have been able to optimize our shooting and editing workflow which helps us conserve the cost. Also, unlike most businesses we do not extensively invest in marketing, advertising, wedding expos or promotions which helps us further cut down our costs and we are able to pass on the benefits to our clients.
What all does the package cost include?
  • Coverage: 2-10+ hrs. professional photography coverage on your wedding day.
  • Post Production: 20 – 30 hours editing your images.
  • Equipment: Producing quality results requires high-end cameras which need to be maintained, insured & replaced as needed.
  • Public Liability: $20 million dollars coverage (peace of mind for you & your venue/s).
  • Licensing & Copyright: The legal use of your images.
Are your packages flexible? Do I have to choose exactly what’s in the package?
  • Our packages are based on duration of coverage and are designed based on popular demands. However we can even customise a package to meet your requirements or budget.
Can we get multiple Photographers?
  • At Wedding Photographer Brisbane, our standard packages include coverage by a single photographer but you have an option to include coverage by additional shooters as an add-on. We believe in truly beautiful candid and natural shots from different angles & dimensions which are best achieved by two or more shooters. Hence we recommend all our clients to include multiple shooters as this multi-camera setup allows us to position ourselves strategically to capture things more naturally as and when they happen.
Do you Photoshop the photos?
  • All our photos are edited and color corrected to make sure exposure, white balance and skin tones are right. We don’t do extensive photoshop like skin retouching or blemishes removal. However, if there are certain photos that you have chosen for the album or canvas print and you would like them to be further enhanced, we can do it for you at an extra cost.
How many photos do you take?
  • On an average wedding day we take a few thousand photos. We then go through all the images and delete imperfect images where people are blinking etc. and narrow it down to your best images of the day. So for a full-day 10+ hrs coverage, you can expect between 700-900 images.
Do we get all of the photos?
  • Yes at Wedding Photographer Brisbane we do not limit the number of photos we deliver. You’ll get all the images that we have edited and processed.
How soon do we get to see the photos?
  • Standard delivery takes 4-6 weeks. However if you want the images sooner, we can do so at an extra cost.
Are the images watermarked?
  • No, the images that you receive for download are not watermarked, however the images published on social media are watermarked to retain our copyrights and prevent unauthorized use.
Can we get RAW files (digital negatives)?
  • At Wedding Photographer Brisbane , you have an option to purchase RAW images as an add-on. We deliver RAW images as full-resolution JPEG files.
Do we get the copyright?
  • The copyright is owned by Wedding Photographer Brisbane/Hallmark Photography and partially shared with the client. We have copyright to use your images for commercial, advertising or promotional purposes and you have copyright to use and distribute them for non-commercial/personal use (considering text credits are provided to @HallmarkPhotographyAU where ever the images are posted or shared). If you do not want us to use your images or films for marketing purposes you can sign a non-disclosure agreement at an additional cost.
Do you offer a pre-wedding / engagement shoot?
  • ABSOLUTELY! This is something we really think every couple should consider. It is a great opportunity for us to know you before your wedding – creating a rapport between us that will get the best results when it comes to photographing your big day. Our clients often use their engagement shoot images to announce their wedding, build a wedding website or invitation cards. As you take this important step in your lives together, Our vision is to help you achieve an indulgent photographic look and feel that reflects your shared interests and passions. Engagement photography is a chance for us to get creative with locations and props, and it’s a lot of fun! We’d love to help you come up with a photographic concept that’s unique to you – a concept that allows your love for each other to shine through in the images we capture.
Can we provide you with a list of images, or must take picture list?
  • A shot list for the family and group photos is crucial. Every wedding is different with lots of variables when it comes to family photos and it’s best to have a list you can work from. You can provide us a wish list of images that you have seen on a website or social media and would want us to re-create for you. We try our best to get as many shots as possible but still can not guarantee re-creating all.
What are your payment terms?
  • To confirm the booking we require $250 deposit to secure the date. The balance needs to be paid up to 60 days after confirming the booking. Payment options are cash or internet banking. You have the option to leave the payment until it is due or you can make progress payments, weekly or monthly if you wish. Your invoice will get updated every time you make a payment and will be emailed to you for your own records.
Can we pay our account after the wedding?
  • No, the entire balance is due 30 days before the wedding. If you however decide to order and album or wall art after your wedding then you can pay that via credit card, cash, internet banking or even with a payment plan. Please inquire with us how payment plans work.
If I cancel my wedding, is the deposit refundable?
  • The deposit is non-refundable. There are sometimes situations or circumstances that we will allow you to utilise the deposit for future shoots but this is the exception not the rule. We can also roll over your deposit if your date changes for any reason and you need to rebook with us with a new wedding date.
When should we book?
  • It depends on how much your want us to photograph your day. If you love our work even if your wedding is over 12 months away, then just book us. We have had too many disappointed couples who thought they could wait until a few months before their wedding to secure us. Generally our weddings book 12-14 months in advance.
Do you require a meal from us at the reception?
  • We do not demand a meal from you but most of our couples are kind enough to provide us with a meal. If you do decide not to provide us with a meal we will take some time during the reception to have our own food.
If we are running late will you stay longer?
  • We will stay up to 15 minutes longer free of charge if things run late. If we have to stay 30 minutes or longer then it’s no problem, we will just charge our hourly photographer rate. This will, however, be discussed with you on the wedding night so you are not surprised when you receive an invoice from us. The invoice will only be issued after your return from your honeymoon.
When do you start and when do you finish?
  • Depending on the time of coverage you choose, when we start photographing you can count the hours on and that is when we will finish. For example, for an 8 hr. booking, if we start with shooting at 12 pm then we will finish at 10 pm that night. Travel time is calculated within that time line. We always recommend that our couples try and find locations fairly close to each other when they are getting ready so we can cut down on travel time and maximize your coverage for the rest of the day.
Where are you based and do you charge for travel?
  • We are based in Brisbane City and we do not charge for travel up to 30 mins / 30 kms. from the city (time is based on Google maps). For weddings outside Brisbane, there are travel charges. For weddings overseas or interstate, flights and accommodation, the night before and the night of the wedding needs to be provided or covered by the client.
