Further info + FAQ’s
What is your style of Photography?
In one word I would say – NATURAL! I am a portrait photographer with documentary-story telling approach.
I’m here to document YOUR story and authentically capture your day. My style of photography is as fun and wild or as calm and quiet as you are.
How many photographs do you take/do we get?
You will be presented with approximately 400-800 finished JPEG images. This amount varies due to wedding size and coverage options.
How much time do we need for location photography?
This is up to you, I do not place time limits on location photography. However, depending on how much travel and number of locations, it’s helpful to have more time than less.
I suggest 1-2 hours for location photography. If you wish to hop to more than 3 locations I would allow 2-3 hours.
Will you be the person shooting my wedding?
Yes, yes and yes!!!! Occasionally I may have an assistant or second shooter along with me, but I will always be there.
If for any reason (such as severe illness) that I am not able to fulfil my obligations as your wedding photographer, I have a list of colleagues that I can call upon to step in.
Will you hold a date while we decide?
Unfortunately not. Dates are held on a first come, first served basis. A deposit of $500 will secure your booking.
How do we get photos if it rains?
As the weather is out of our control, I find it best to roll with mother nature’s lead. Rainy weather can mean we may have to wait until it passes, or we can find an undercover option.
Flexibility is the key and whatever the weather, we will find a way to make the most of it.
Do you photograph destination weddings?
I sure do! I am happy to travel to your wedding destination.
Please note that the price of one airfare, 2 nights accom (1 night prior to wedding and 1 night of your wedding) and car hire will be additional costs to your chosen photography package.
Do you include high resolution digital files of every photograph in our package?
Yes! All of your finished high resolution jpeg files will be provided via your private online gallery and on USB stick.
How does the album design work if we want an album?
Once your wedding photos are ready, you will be presented with your wedding as a gorgeous album slideshow. This is like a story book of your day, in images. Each album is 100% custom made combining your favourite images with smart, elegant templates.
If you wish to have an album printed, you can select pages from within your slideshow, or we can build an album from scratch using your favourite images. You will also choose the colour of your album cover.
When your album is designed, you will receive a digital proof to view and approve. Once you have approved the design, it will be sent to be printed.
Your album will then be delivered to you.
Do you shoot with film or digital cameras?
I now use exclusively digital cameras only. (Canon) I edit my images to have a natural film look.
Do you shoot RAW or JPEG?
Rooooar! I mean RAW. Always, 100%
Your finished files will be JPEG format.
How can we use our digital files?
Your digital files will be provided on a USB stick for your personal use. This means you may print them at home or using a commercial printer. You can create photo products and gifts to share such as these Photo Products
Images can be shared electronically too via email, Facebook or other social media – however photo credit MUST BE NOTED to Gemma Carr Photography.

Are you willing to customise a package if none of yours fits our needs?
Yes, if one of the existing packages is not suited to you, we can design one a-la cart just for you!
Do you offer videography?
At this stage no, but I do have a some Videographer colleagues who I can suggest.
How much of a deposit do you require and when is it due?
A deposit of $500 is due at the time of booking your wedding. This will secure your wedding date. The remaining balance can be paid in instalments or 14 days prior to your wedding day.
What are our payment options?
Payments can be made as follows:
- direct bank transfer
What is your refund/cancellation policy?
A non-refundable booking fee of $500 is charged when the client books their wedding and signs the photography contract. This fee is deducted in full from the total price.
The booking fee secures the time and services of the photographer for the wedding and is non-refundable in the event of cancellation.
Should your wedding date be postponed, all efforts will be made to arrange photography on the new date subject to availability.
If your wedding shoot has been paid in full and is cancelled 14 days or less before the wedding shoot, there will be a refund of any monies over $500.
Your wedding photography typically begins with the bride (you) getting ready. Then it’s off to the very important bit… your ceremony. After your ceremony its hugs and kisses all round as you mingle with your guests. When you’re ready we will move on to family photos and a group photo if you like.
Then we scoot off and have some time for photos. The amount of time you want for this is up to you, but generally 1 hour minimum works really well. Prior to your big day we will discuss some locations that you love. Locations are only limited to time and proximity of your wedding venues.
Your bridal party may wish to join in for some of these shots and they can also help carry drinks – Cheers!
We will most likely finish up at your reception venue, then it’s time to party!
A pre wedding meeting will be held in the month prior to your wedding to lock in locations and confirm all arrangements for your photography.
Within 6 weeks after your wedding you will receive an invitation to view your wedding photo collection via an online gallery. From within this private gallery you can share your photos with all your friends (and on Facebook).
Wedding albums take approximately 8 weeks to prepare from the date of order.
It's a date!
