Wedding FAQ

WHAT’S YOUR STYLE?
I would best describe my style as relaxed, natural and beautiful. My images reflect my love of clean composition, beautiful light, and helping you to look natural and gorgeous! I’ll be there to capture everything and yet I hope you barely remember seeing me. There is a delicate balance of knowing when to stay back and capture the action and when to step in and take advantage of magical light.

DO YOU DO VIDEO AS WELL?
There is only one of me and I concentrate solely on still photography. It is what I do best 🙂 I can certainly recommend some awesome videographers who are amazing at what they do. And that I, of course, love to work with!

WHO WILL BE THE PHOTOGRAPHER AT OUR WEDDING?
Me. Always me.There is no team of photographers. Just little ole me. Every image featured on my website, in my galleries and albums has been taken by me, processed by me. You know exactly what you are getting. No nasty surprises.
In the unfortunate event that I fall terribly ill, or worse still, die, I am lucky to have a fabulous network of experienced photographers that I am able to call on if needed. Trust me, I would never leave you hanging and there are systems in place should they ever be needed.

CAN WE MEET YOU?
Absolutely! I love to meet and catch up with all of my clients before their wedding day. Sometimes this can be difficult due to location and distance. We can phone, skype or zoom if we need to.

HOW MANY PHOTO DO WE RECEIVE?
I do not have a limit or any set number. Every wedding is different and how many images you end up with will depend on which coverage option you chose, how large your wedding party is, how much time you allocate for photos, if your day runs on time and schedule.

DO YOU OFFER ENGAGEMENT SESSIONS?
Yes I do 🙂 I encourage engagement sessions for all of my wedding couples. Its a great way to get to know one another. Sessions generally take place on a weekday as my weekends are busy with wedding shoots. In Summer we can take advantage of daylight savings and shoot later in the evenings.

DO YOU TAKE FAMILY PHOTOS?
Yes. This is such an important part of your day. These are the people that mean the most to you both. And will probably kill the two of you and me if we miss them 😉 I will work through a list of family groupings with you in the weeks before the wedding. Making sure that no one is missed and you have time to think about who you wish to include.

DO YOU HAVE INSURANCE?
Of course! 100% Yes. If your venue requires a certificate of currency please let me know and I can arrange for a copy to be sent to your venue before your wedding day.

DO YOU PHOTOGRAPH ELOPEMENTS AND SMALL WEDDINGS?
Yes, yes, yes! Elopement and micro wedding bookings can be made Monday through to Thursdays. Fridays and weekends may be available for limited dates but can only be booked 8 weeks in advance. Micro weddings and elopements are classified as intimate weddings with 20 people or less.

WHEN AND HOW DO WE RECEIVE OUR IMAGES?
You will receive a USB with hi-res digital images 4-6 weeks after your wedding. The majority of my office time is spent on colour correcting and post processing, so you can be sure that the utmost care is taken with each image and that you’ll have a cohesive set of images that tell the story of your celebration. You will receive a full set of images in BOTH colour and black and white.

DO YOU OFFER ALBUMS PRINTS AND WALL ART?
YES! And I encourage each and every one of my clients to print their wedding photos.  Make the most of your wedding photographs by printing your photos rather than letting them sit and collect dust on a hard drive! I offer custom-designed albums, prints and a wide range of gorgeous art work for the walls.
Check out this page for more information about my albums.

CAN WE PRINT OUR OWN PHOTOS?
You will have full printing rights to your photographs. If you choose to share photos online please remember to credit Briony Hardinge 🙂

WHAT DO YOUR PRICES START AT?
My wedding coverage options begin from $2450.

CAN YOU HOLD A DATE FOR ME?
Out of fairness for ALL couples the only way to hold a date is with a completed booking form and a deposit. Bookings are made on a first come, first served basis.

WHEN SHOULD WE BOOK YOU FOR OUR WEDDING?
Before someone else does 😉
Seriously, some couples will book me 18 months out and others are able to book a date 6 weeks out. It does depend on the time of year and if it’s a weekend or weekday. As soon as you are able to make a decision I would recommend locking it in 🙂

YOU’RE THE PHOTOGRAPHER FOR US! HOW DO WE RESERVE OUR WEDDING DATE?
Great!  The next step is to EMAIL ME so I can confirm my availability. Then I will send you a link to my online booking form. When I receive a completed booking form I will send through an invoice for your deposit. The deposit is $600 and the date is locked in for you once the deposit has been received. I cannot hold any date for without both the deposit and booking form completed. After that, we’ll start collaborating on timeline and structuring your day for photography. The remaining balance is due any time on or before your wedding date.

I can’t wait to work with you!
