Congratulations! You're engaged!

Who doesn't love a coffee date, right? I'll be there sipping on a chai latte because it is my absolute favourite! At this meeting, I like to learn more about your wedding and get to know your love story. Because my job is more than just taking photos at your wedding. It is about getting to know you and creating connection. After all, I will be spending more time with you on your wedding day than probably any other person!

We can also chat about all the pretty details of your wedding, and I will be there to answer any questions you might have about your wedding day. Such as," How much time do I need for family photographs?" and "What is a first look?". Don't worry, I've got you covered!

initial meeting

An engagement session is an optional extra but it is such a big part of the wedding experience! It helps us to get to know each other better and will help you both to feel at ease being photographed on your wedding day. 

I am always here to help guide wardrobe and styling and to help you pick the best session location. I love to recommend that brides-to-be pamper themselves and have hair and make up done for the session. It will help you to feel and look amazing in your photos. But it doesn't stop there! Don't just let your beautiful engagement photos languish, use and enjoy your engagement photos throughout your wedding season. Why not use the images on your save the date cards, thank you cards, or on your personalised wedding website.

Engagement session

This is likely the first time you have planned your own wedding! I am sure you have all sorts of questions. Having photographed many weddings, I know tips and tricks that will help you to have the best photos AND maximise your time with your loved ones. This all important timeline will be one of the first things we will plan out together.

Working in the wedding industry I have had the honour of meeting so many wonderful creatives that provide amazing products and experiences to couples just like you. From florists to cake makers, hair and make up artists, wedding stationery and celebrants. Your team of vendors can help make your wedding day run smoothly. I would love to give you some referrals to some of amazing vendors that I have met. Going the DIY route? I have some great tips and resources for you too! Check out my blog.



planning your wedding

Congratulations!! Your wedding day is finally here!

From your bridal preparations, to walking down the isle, to your first kiss as husband and wife, to your sparkler send off at the reception, your wedding day will go so quickly. No matter how hard you try, you won't be able to take it all in. There will be moments that you couldn't see, or may not be a part of. Using the timeline we created together, I will coordinate my day so that I can be present for as much as possible and be your extra set of eyes.

YOUR WEDDING DAY

Your final gallery of images will be be available in 4-6 weeks after your wedding.

So why not snuggle up on the couch together, grab your laptop and play the digital slideshow together and re-live all of the precious little moments of your wedding day.

Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT IS LIFESTYLE PHOTOGRAPHY?

I believe timeless images are ones of us with our natural expressions. Lifestyle photography is a natural and unposed style of photography that is designed to capture you as you are.
 
WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR?

First and foremost I want you to wear something that you are comfortable in! To get the most from your photo's, stick to light, pastel or muted colours and avoid dark or bold colours. Block colours and simple patterns such as spots, stripes work best. It is best to avoid t-shirts with large insignia or logos.

WHY DON’T YOU RELEASE ALL OF THE PHOTOS YOU TAKE?

Only images that are examples of our best work will form your final gallery. Images that are blurry, pixelated, improperly exposed or a duplicate are not examples of our best work and will not form your final gallery.

DO YOU EDIT YOUR PHOTOS?
 
Yes, all images are corrected for light, colour and sharpening as well as our own special touches prior to release.

DO YOU RELEASE RAW IMAGES?

No, RAW images are not available for purchase under any package. All images are copyright by Lead Images and alterations to the images are a breach of copyright law.

IS STUDIO PHOTOGRAPHY AVAILABLE?

My ultimate favourite style of photography is outdoors. However, I do have studio space which I can use for smaller groups.

WHEN WILL I RECEIVE MY PHOTOS?

Sneak peeks are usually available on the Lead Images Facebook page 48 hours after session.  Final galleries are available within 4 weeks for weddings and 2 weeks for any other session type, such as maternity or family.

WHAT IF I NEED TO RESCHEDULE MY APPOINTMENT?

Rescheduling of photography sessions with in one week of the shoot date may be allowed pending availability. Refunds and rescheduling is not permitted for mini sessions unless initiated by Lead Images due to heavy rain. More detailed information will be outlined in your contract.

WHAT IF I NEED TO CANCEL MY APPOINTMENT?

If you cancel your session and do not wish to reschedule, your deposit will not be refunded. Please select carefully. 

HOW MANY IMAGES WILL I RECEIVE?

The number of images you receive will vary depending on your session type. Family and maternity sessions receive a minimum of 20 gallery images to choose from. Wedding galleries will have 100's of images. More detailed information will be available in your contract.

WHY DO YOU RECOMMEND THAT I PRINT THROUGH YOU?

A professional photolab is very different to the printing service that you will find in department stores. The top two reasons for the difference is the quality of paper that is used to print your photos. A professional photolab will also ensure your images are proofed for correction and colour before printing.

WHAT TIME OF DAY SHOULD WE SCHEDULE THE SHOOT?

The best time of day for your session will depend on the location and season. Generally late afternoon or early morning will be the best time for your session.

WHAT ARE YOUR FAVOURITE LOCATIONS TO SHOOT?

In Brisbane we are spoilt for choice! We have beautiful gardens, fields, rainforests and urbane landscapes at our fingertips. I am happy to discuss what kind of images you would like for your family and make my recommendations from there. Or let me know if there is someplace special that you would like me to capture images for you? Perhaps you met your significant other at a park and would like to capture images there.


thank you!

you'll hear from me shortly.
