“Jim, your ability to capture not only amazing images but the real feel and emotion of the day is second to none. Your creative genius not only helped make the day itself but has really let us relive each moment.

These pics have already ensured that there’s been almost as many smiles and laughs as there was at the time.

Love your work mate.”

— Ben and Holly

All prices are valid for up to three months from the date of this document being sent and are in New Zealand Dollars. All prices include GST. International bank transfers may incur an additional fee. 

For South Island Weddings we typically prefer to use our Electric Car to minimise our footprint on the environment, we charge travel (essentially Electricity) based on the location of the wedding e.g. Queenstown $100.

For North Island Weddings we have to fly so we ask couples to help with that.

All bookings are taken on a first come first serve basis. Dates cannot be confirmed until both the contract has been signed and the booking fee paid.

Frequently Asked Questions (In no particular order)

QUESTION

How do we get our images and how many do we get?

ANSWER

All of your edited images are delivered via a beautiful online private and permanent gallery. From there you can download, order prints and albums, create a collection and share with friends. We don’t promise any set number of images, as we don’t believe quantity necessarily means quality. However, as a rough guide we usually give about 700+ for the full day package.

QUESTION

Can we do our portrait photos before the ceremony?

ANSWER

Ideally we try to guide our couples to do them afterwards. The light is always better, so you look better and you’ll be more relaxed. Your dress, make up and hair will look perfect for your ceremony, not always so after being on mountains adventuring with Jim! It’s also your opportunity to escape, to be away alone as a married couple for the first time somewhere beautiful.

QUESTION

Can you make the portrait shoot short?

ANSWER

Yes and no, we really urge our couples to treat heading off for photos as an enjoyable and relaxing part of the wedding day. To avoid feeling rushed we recommend at least 30 minutes.

We are also always happy to help you plan your day to get the best for your photography and wedding day experience.

QUESTION

Do you have a second shooter or assistant?

ANSWER

Typically Jim covers most weddings by himself. He's a bit of a Ninja and gets all angles without being obtrusive and in the way. But should you want more coverage, we do offer Vicky as a 2nd shooter option, she is also an awesome and experienced photographer,

QUESTION

Do you spend all night shooting us on the dance floor?

ANSWER

No, well a little! Once Jim feels like he’s got a really good representation of the awesomeness going on, he’ll leave you all in peace. We know it’s not ideal having a camera in your face when you’re trying to let your hair down and get on it.

QUESTION

Can we go to that place where everyone gets their photos done?

ANSWER

We try to ensure that each wedding portrait shoot is unique to each couple. It makes it much more special for you and gets Jim's creative juices flowing.
Jim thrives on scouting to find you the location that fits perfectly, both from a time perspective and for the aesthetics. We firmly believe you work hard to create an individual wedding and that’s how we feel about your wedding photos too.

QUESTION

What happens if the weather throws a wobbly (goes crazy)?

ANSWER

It’s not a worry! That’s why you hired a team with a love for scouting locations and thinking on their feet. You’ll get beautiful shots regardless of the weather. In fact, often our best work happens when its ‘atmospheric’. It all comes down to being positive and being prepared to make the most of any weather!

QUESTION

When do we get our photos?

ANSWER

About 6/8 weeks after your wedding day (if not before), you’ll get a link first to your slideshow and then soon after to your personal gallery to view and download your images. Also we aim to get at least one image to you a few days after your big day.

QUESTION

Will Jim travel for our wedding?

ANSWER

Absolutely!!! We are based in Canterbury, but Jim loves to travel domestically and internationally, we’ve shot weddings all over NZ, Asia, USA, Australia and Europe.

QUESTION

Can you help us with local suppliers and venues?

ANSWER

Of course! We’ve built up a great network of people and companies all around the world who are amazing.

QUESTION

Do we have to feed you?

ANSWER

Yes please, as we will start to wither slightly if you don’t!

QUESTION

Will you pose us?

ANSWER

Jim wants to capture you interacting with each other naturally. Now we know that’s not easy with a camera in your face! So Jim will certainly help guide you and your wedding party, but at the end of the day it’s all about you guys being yourselves.

QUESTION

Sounds brilliant! How can we book you?

ANSWER

To confirm we require a 30% booking fee, and a signed copy of our Contract. The remainder is to be paid 30 days prior to the wedding day.
