How long in advance do we need to book you?

Some couples will prefer to book 2 years in advance but really it’s up to each couple, the size of their wedding and their needs. I would suggest booking as soon as you are sure on a rough date you would like your wedding. 

We are not comfortable in front of the lens…how does this work on the wedding day ?

The last thing I want is for you to feel stressed during your special occasion, I photograph in a documentary style, this means I won’t ask you to recreate moments or to pull weird poses ! I will help you to find the best light and background and will find the spot you look most comfortable through my lens. Most of the time you won’t even know I am there ! Your wedding day should be fun, you must enjoy it as it goes quickly, so my portrait sessions are always very relaxed and natural. Let the magic happen and go with the flow !

What will we receive after our wedding?

You will receive:

  • A small selection of photographs within a week of your wedding day. 

  • Within 1 month you will receive a USB with approximately  800-1000 photographs both high resolution (for printing) and low resolution (web-ready) with a mix of colour and black and white. All images are professional colour corrected & retouched by me.

  • Depending on your package a selection of Fine Art Prints

We have our unique plan for our wedding day , can you customise your packages?

Yes this is something we can plan together so let’s discuss to see what package we can create to meet your needs. 

Can you help us with light and timing suggestions?

Of course, I can suggest the best time of the day for your ceremony and portrait sessions, ensuring the most natural and beautiful photographs are captured.

Do you shoot same-sex marriages

Of course Oui ! Any marriages !! 

Our memories are precious, do you have systems in place to protect them?

Yes, of course. Your day can never be recreated, this is why I have a strict system in place to safeguard your memories. I can walk you through those details during our first meeting.

We have a short time for the portrait session, are you comfortable with that?

Yes I am,  you don’t  need to worry! I will make sure you have beautiful photographs taken regardless. 

Do we need to catch up with you before the wedding to organise?

I am a people person so I would love to meet you before the day ! However, I do know how hectic it is to plan a wedding especially from afar, and during these trying times. I’m happy to chat via phone, faceTime, skype, or email to talk through the details. Whatever you prefer.

Do you charge for travel in victoria?

My travel is included in the photography packages ( see Photography pricing) . The kms included is dependent on your package, don’t hesitate to contact me for a rate if you need further travel, interstate or international travel.

Can we get the raw files from the day?

As all raw files need colour correction and processing they will not be provided, you will receive the files retouched in high-resolution JPEG, RAW files are too slow to transfer and are slow to work with ! The Hi-Res JPEGS are big enough to print in large scale and very high quality. If you employ me to provide you with photos of your wedding day, it’s important you place your trust in me and my work.

Do you need a photography capture list?

This is something I don’t need. Every wedding is unique. As a lifestyle wedding photographer I will document your day and capture all the real moments. If you would like to organise a portrait session, as a fashion photographer I will make sure I capture some stunning and elegant moments, with the french touch! However, if there is something specific you would like on the day I am open to it .

What is lifestyle photography ?

My style of photography is described as very natural , relaxed and  elegant . I will ‘document’ your wedding ( and your family ) you may even forget I am there – I never ask for anything posey !

What about the light?

I have a very big love for natural light so if we can capture the beautiful sunset and shoot at the time of the golden light – it’s fantastic ! I am happy to help and discuss what could be the best time, but we all know Melbourne and its unpredictable weather ! We will make the best of your day – rest assured I can shoot inside and out, light, dark, rain, hail or shine !

Do you watermark your photographs?

Absolutely not !

Do you offer Fine Art Prints & custom Photo Albums?

I do. This will depend on your package. Also see fine art print prices for more information. Fine Art Prints ensure your memories will look incredible and will not fade over time. A Personalised Photo Album is a beautiful way to share your incredible day with family ,friends and loved ones. Albums make wonderful gifts. It’s something I can do but it is not included in any of my packages. For more details don’t hesitate to send me an email.   

Do you travel, Australia/Overseas? What is the cost?

Yes, I am in France annually. The cost would depend on travel arrangements and your wedding schedule. Travelling fees would occur – please get in touch to discuss your needs.

Do you photograph engagement parties?

Yes of course, we can discuss an engagement/wedding package otherwise contact me if you would like to organise a one night only shoot for your engagement. 

Do you need us to organise your dinner?

Yes as my energy is super important – if you would like me to stay and capture all the best from the speeches to the dancefloor – I will need to eat ! : ) 

If I have not answered any of your questions in relation to wedding or family photography please do not hesitate to contact me and I will be more than happy to accommodate. 

Merci Beaucoup ! 

Bisous, Steph.
