DANIELLE & DAMIEN
We had Madelyn shoot our engagement photos, which we absolutely LOVE, but nothing compares to having her capture our wedding day a fortnight ago. It truly was a pleasure having Madelyn spend our special day with us as she is such a beautiful person. Without even seeing the full gallery of photos yet, I just know they are going to be spectacular!
We have continuously returned to Madelyn for family photos with her excellent eye for detail, professionalism, and unending patience. No ideas are too outrageous, no details too small and no children too boisterous. Madelyn is kind, genuine and beyond talented. Our family photos are one of the highlights of my year, every year. No doubt she'll hear from me again soon!
KELLY & CHRIS
At the end of the day all you have to remember your wedding by are the photos and Madelyn definitely exceeded our expectations. We are over the moon with our images, she made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera and captured all the special moments which we will treasure forever. To be honest, we hardly knew she was there!
How soon should I book? As soon as you have discussed potential dates and locations, which is typically 12-18 months out. Your venue, photographer and celebrant should be the first three things you secure.
Do you travel? Yes! I travel frequently and have photographed across many regions in Central Queensland as well as Brisbane, Sunshine Coast, Gold Coast and Toowoomba.
Why should we book you? As your wedding photographer I don’t just show up on the day, take photos and leave a few hours later. I want to capture your day in a way that tells your unique story – the little details, fleeting moments and people you love. I’ll also be your planning consultant, time keeper, unofficial bridesmaid, family herder and hopefully friend for years to come.
What happens after we've booked? If we haven’t met before, I’ll arrange to catch up with you for coffee to discuss your plans for the day and divulge some of my best photography tips. Then I’ll provide your welcome packet (full of information and advice) and keep in touch in the lead up to the wedding.
How long is it until we get our images back? My emphasis as a photographer is on quality over quantity. I’ll post a sneak peek within 48 hours (unless otherwise requested), email a private preview gallery a few weeks later and delivery of your full package will take approximately 8 weeks.
Should we book an engagement shoot? Generally the clients that are most apprehensive about booking an engagement session are the couples that would benefit most. It is great opportunity to get comfortable in front of the camera, trial your plans and get a little more adventurous than your wedding day schedule may allow (pet/family photos included!).
How far in advance should I book a session? Sessions typically book 3 months in advance, with October-December dates booking especially quickly being the lead up to Christmas. For maternity and time-dependent sessions, I suggest booking as soon as possible to ensure availability.
Do you choose the locations of your shoots? I am frequently scouting and finding new beautiful locations in our local area, but any input you may have for your session is welcomed so please feel free to share your ideas. If you're unsure I can provide a PDF with suggestions to help decide on a look for your photos.
What should we bring and wear? Upon booking my clients receive a styling guide and session preparation tips to make sure all your questions are answered. I also have a great list of local businesses I can recommend to help bring your photographic vision to life.
How long does it take to get our images back? Most sessions have a turnaround of 2-4 weeks. Keep in mind any extra time you may need to order and receive products if you have a specific deadline to work around.
Do we have to order print products through you? I supply a print release with each booking, but I highly recommend ordering products through professional vendors. Your photos are forever so I encourage you to let me help create keepsakes worthy of being displayed and passed down for generations.
