Hello my Canadian (and American) friends! If you’ve come this far you must have shown some interest in my wedding photography services for the summer of 2020 in Canada or the US. I’m so glad you got in touch! I’m excited to be spending time in North America for the summer and I’m looking forward to shooting a bunch of weddings there!
First of all, a little bit about me: I’m an Australian wedding photographer, happily married to my beautiful Canadian wife. Every few years we head back to Canada to spend time there. This year I was hoping to take my business with me and shoot some Canadian couples. I love shooting in different places, and I’ve been fortunate to have had the opportunity to travel for my work quite often over the last few years. You can read a little bit about me HERE - including features and awards and all that stuff - but more importantly what makes me tick, why I do what I do and how I like to shoot.
Regarding rates, this will depend on where your wedding will take place. I’ll be based out of Toronto (Mississauga) for the most part, and although I’m keen to venture just about anywhere, I will need to gauge costs involved with flights, car rental, accommodation etc. I’ll also need your date, so I can make sure I’m available! I’ve already booked a number of weddings, and dates are filling fast.
Once I have this info I’ll give you a basic quote for 10 hours coverage and all the essentials. You can choose to add on extras if you’d like
As far as my inclusions are concerned, it’s all pretty simple: there’s one basic package that includes all the essentials, and then you can add on any extras to suit. There’s no obligation on your part to order any of the extras, and in the case of albums and prints you can opt to purchase them long after your wedding if that suits. Or - since you receive all your images in high-res, without watermarks - you might choose to create your own DIY books and order prints from your own local print shop. It’s up to you :)
My basic package (PRICE TBA)
9 hours coverage by yours truly.
A minimum of 600 images edited in color
A minimum of 600 images edited in b&w
All images delivered in a pic-time gallery, online for a minimum of 5 years.
All images in high-res, downloadable, without watermarks.
A $150 print credit, that you can put towards anything in your online shop.
A USB with all high-res images.
1. While the minimum images I deliver is 1200, it usually works out to be more like 1500.
2. Your pic-time gallery is online indefinitely. I just can’t specify more than a 5-year minimum.
3. Your online gallery doubles as a shop, which is connected to Bay Photo, a Canadian lab.
In addition to the main package, you may wish to purchase add-ons. These are by no means necessary, but can be great additions depending on your budget and needs.
Wedding Album: $1500 CAD
Hand-bound, premium leather, embossed keepsakes.
Cotton-rag giclée paper, lay-flat pages, archival inks.
A minimum of 25 spreads (50 pages), of fine art goodness.
Second Photographer: $750 CAD
Another creative human to float around on the day, helping to capture extra moments of happiness and good vibes.
Recommended for weddings of over 100 people.
Extra Hours: $250/hour
I shoot for a minimum of 9 hours. I never shoot less and often shoot more, but if you want me there for 10 or more hours, it might be an idea to add them to the package. If you’re not sure, get in touch!
Second Shooter Info
My second shooters are wedding photographers in their own right, so I can’t lock in specific shooters until close to the wedding date. The second shooters shoot for 6 hours, but can stay longer where required. I tend not to recommend second shooters for smaller more intimate weddings, because an extra body can be more obtrusive, but second shooters can help with broader coverage and are particularly useful when there are people getting ready in different locations a long way apart at the same time.
I shoot a minimum of 9 hours, but the reality is I tend to go over. Still, if you’re looking at needing me for 9 or more hours there may be an extra fee. If you’re not sure, get in touch and we can have a chat!
Booking and Payment Info
It’s a tricky business booking someone on the other side of the world and putting faith in them, so with this in mind I’m happy to wait for full payment of services until the wedding day itself. A deposit, however, will be required to hold the date. You can choose to pay in a couple of different ways, but paypal is the easiest - all this info will be provided should you wish to book.
