thanks for your wedding photography booking!
hi and thanks for booking your "tiny / basic wedding" photography package with Sunny Coast Photos!
my name is Dave Gleeson, I’ll be your wedding day photographer and I'm looking forward to meeting you soon!
as a Sunshine Coast wedding photographer who shoots 50-60 weddings each year, I love the challenge of shooting in a wide variety of outdoor locations and conditions to create amazing wedding day memories for my clients. my typical photography style is very candid, casual, and natural with an emphasis on light, bright, natural and colourful images.
so, hopefully that's the style of photos you want too!
if you are not already familiar with my photography style, please look around my website or follow me on instagram or facebook. you can also view my recent 'real life' wedding galleries or a sample wedding album
more information on this 'tiny / basic wedding' photography package
upon booking and payment of deposit I will guarantee your reservation and 'lock in' our services for your confirmed wedding date and time, so that your date can't be snapped up by anyone else!
I will send you a questionnaire where you can fill in all the important details of your day and outline any special wedding photography requests. you will also receive a copy of our standard terms and conditions which outlines what I will do for you, and also what I need from you to ensure that everything runs smoothly!
your package includes all my time with communications and planning prior to your wedding, along with my time, photography expertise, creativity and skills on your wedding day and all editing and post production, gallery creation and ongoing assistance post-wedding. the few hours I spend with you on your wedding day are only a small portion of the total time that I'll be dedicating to you!
your package also (normally) includes an in person meet-up pre-wedding where we will get to know each other, we will go over your plans and timings and you can ask any questions.
after your wedding day, I will create your online photo gallery of all the best photos from your day. this gallery may contain up to 100-150+ images. from this gallery you can view, select and download your favourite high resolution digital photos and invite friends and family to see the photos too. this 'tiny / basic wedding' package includes 25 photos which are supplied as high quality digital files. (if you have booked the tiny wedding 'luxe' package, this includes 30 photos)
extra photos are available after you have viewed your gallery (if required).
no printed products are included in this package (but they can be added if required - you can make these decisions after you have seen your full gallery of images)
your wedding images are archived for 12 months on my secure servers for peace of mind
whats the typical timeline for this wedding photography package?
your photographer will arrive at your ceremony location around 30 minutes before your ceremony start time to setup all equipment and meet with your celebrant. during the half hour pre-ceremony your photographer will capture a few quick portraits of the groom/partner 1 and images of the ceremony setup and other details such as flowers, rings etc
approx 10 minutes prior to ceremony start your photographer will arrange to meet the bride / partner 2 for quick pre-wedding portraits. your photographer will then assist the celebrant to coordinate the bridal party entrance.
throughout the ceremony (usually approx 15-20 minutes) your photographer will capture a range of candid moments, the ring exchange, vows, your first kiss and signing of official registers etc
you may then choose to do an official 'walk out' where your guests throw flower petals/confetti etc. followed by hugs, kisses and congratulations from friends and family, if relevant.
we will then have brief family and friends/group photos (approx 5-15 minutes depending on number of guests)
after that there will be time for a casual couples / bridal party shoot around your ceremony location (approx 15-20 minutes)
please note that this basic photography package is only suitable for smaller weddings & elopements with a brief ceremony and a small number of guests. our time on location with this package is capped at 1.5 hours on your wedding day so if you are having a larger wedding with more than 20 guests or would like extra images or more photography time, you may wish to consider a package with more inclusions (if so, just let me know and I'll send further info)
more helpful information for you...
your wedding photography results are heavily dependent on location, weather and time of day so please take this into account when organising your ceremony location and time. unfortunately I cannot conjure up a beautiful sunset or blue sky day for every wedding, so your photography results will be determined by the conditions on the day.
wet weather can happen at any time of year so please have a 'wet weather' ceremony location organised 'just in case'. I am predominantly an 'outdoors / on location / natural light' photographer, so if we are using an indoors or location without great natural lighting then the variety and quality of your photographs may be compromised.
please note that this package is a limited time basic photography package with photos taken around your ceremony location only, so please understand that we cannot move locations for extra photos with this package. (this option is included in our larger packages, if required). it is also vital that you arrive to your ceremony location at the agreed time, to ensure that we can cover your wedding effectively within the allocated time. thanks for your understanding.
between now and your wedding day I will stay in touch and will provide you with more information and advice so that I can ensure the best service for you. in the meantime, if you have any other questions, or want to amend your package in any way, just let me know!
