My style of photography is often called candid or documentary. What does that mean? It means I don’t run around posing everyone, instead I become part of your day, part of what’s going on, a quiet observer of things. I capture the real, the candid, the natural.
Yes. A 50% deposit will secure your date. All deposits are non-refundable, but where possible I am happy to reschedule.
Full payment is required one week prior to your photo date.
An on location photo-shoot means, I work in the real world, not in a studio. I will travel to your home or your favorite place. If your favorite place is a remote island in the Caribbean that’s where we’ll go. Travel costs may apply.
All my photographic packages include a free travel zone in the flat-fee price. If you live within a 30km radius from Melbourne CBD it’s in the free zone. However, if your favorite location is outside the free travel zone for your selected package, for example, you want to travel to Regional Victorica, NSW or NYC, the location is classified as non- local and additional travel fees, like airfares and accommodation may apply. We can discuss this when you get in touch
Yes, there is a 20% surcharge on all packages.
Of course I will. Important note: Remember to allow travel time between each location when you are planning your day and considering how many hours you will require me.
It varies depending on how many hours you require – but you will receive all the edited images. What does that mean? It means all the images have passed the Lisa test, they have been selected, edited, stay true to my style and up to my exacting professional standard. (Please note – while you will not receive all the images taken on the day – you will receive the best).
Your edited, professionally finished digital images will be delivered via a personal Dropbox link. The digital files (for non-commercial use only) will be in high-resolution, suitable for printing your own album and enlargements up to 10″ x 8″ and low-resolution suitable for social media use.
Events: within 7 – 10 days
Weddings: within 14 – 21 days
Express service available: If you need your photos extra fast I can usually accommodate this, additional fees may apply.
Most people think a clear sunny day is the perfect light for photos. Generally isn’t.
Think… Search light (aka mid-day sun) VS Candle light (aka sunrise/sunset) Harsh light causes harsh shadows and generally is very unflattering.
Early morning or late afternoon light tends to be a softer light and casts an even light across your beautiful face. The light at this time is your friend. If possible try to avoid harsh mid-day sun… it is not your friend.
If you’re going to book a Videographer make sure they’re nice. We’ll both be vying for the best shot, so a videographer that knows how to share is a good choice. Choosing the “nice videographer and nice photographer” combo ensures you’ll end up with a great video and photo story.
Yes I can. However most of my clients prefer to print their own enlargements. The cost of using my printing service will vary depending on what size you require, the paper stock you use and will also include a fee for my time.
Short answer, No. With so many online album services available you can save yourself a bucket load of cash by printing and managing your own album design.
Definitely! A wee catch up at my other office and we’ll soon know if we’re made for each other. Catch-ups are generally scheduled for Monday evenings between 6pm – 8pm. I know we lead busy lives so I’m happy to discuss possible (days/times) alternatives.
Copyright in the photographs remains with the photographer aka me. You can use the photos on social media and you can print as many as you need for your personal, non-commercial use. All the legalities are covered in my booking form.
Use of images for commercial purposes will incur licensing fees. If you receive an inquiry to use the images for commercial purposes, i.e. a venue wants to use one of your wedding photos for their advertising, or blog etc, please refer the inquiry to me so I can assist them.
