How do I book?
A deposit of 30% is required to secure your date and commence planning for your wedding.
The deposit is non-refundable. The deposit is transferable to another person or for another photographic service should unforeseen circumstances arise pending availability of the new date.
How far advance should I book?
Our wedding appointments book up very fast, especially Saturdays between April and November. The best thing to do is contact Simon when you have dates in mind to check his availability.
Once a date is set and the venue is secured, contact Simon as soon as possible to secure your date.
Do you travel?
Hell yeah! Based in Coffs Harbour, I am available interstate and worldwide. We ask that you provide travel, accommodation and meal expenses outside of 100km if required.
What is your photographic style?
I’d describe myself as an easygoing, affable kind of guy. I use my experience in photography to make the process as quick, fun, and minimally invasive as possible. I like a very natural and intimate feel to my images.”
How many images will I receive from the day?
We usually deliver between 50-100 images per hour. Please rest assured that we deliver all photos which meet Simon’s artistic standard and only get rid of the blinking and blurry photos. There will definitely be some bloopers for your viewing pleasure!
How much photography coverage do we need?
This depends strongly on what you would like to be captured. Simon is able to photograph the entire day if you prefer, from hair and makeup through the end of the reception, for which we’d recommend the 9-hour package and perhaps extra hours. If you’re only looking to have the ceremony and reception captured, the 6-hour package should cover your needs. If necessary, we can tailor packages to ensure you have all the coverage you want and need.
I’m really awkward in front of the camera!
Many people feel uncomfortable or don’t know what to do in a formal photograph setting, but that’s why we are here for you. Simon shoots candid moments in a minimally invasive way so that you won’t even notice the camera and won’t feel awkward or uncomfortable. When it comes time to the posed portraits, Simon has plenty of simple techniques to have you feeling as wonderful as you look.
Yes. We photography LGBTIQ Weddings?
En Vogue is proud to support the LGBTIQ community and provide wedding photography services for all. We would be honored to photograph your special day.
Do you offer engagement sessions?
Yes, we strongly suggest couples consider an engagement shoot – it gives everyone an opportunity to work out the most natural and flattering poses and it is an excellent way to minimise nerves for the big day. Whilst grooms in particular can be reluctant to participate, we have found that it has made them far more relaxed and natural on the big day.
Can I have a second photographer?
For weddings that are particularly large or have large distances between wedding parties, we are more than happy to bring on a second photographer for you. However, if you have a standard sized wedding of 100 guests or less, Simon can typically handle a wedding by himself and capture all of your favourite moments.
When is payment due?
The balance of funds for your package is due 5 working days before the ceremony, non-payment will be considered a breach of contract resulting in a forfeiture of the deposit. Due to production costs, images, prints and other products will not be released until all outstanding monies are paid in full.
My family member wants to photograph our wedding!
Yes, they are welcome to take photographs. Explain that you’ve hired a professional photographer and that your wishes are to have that photographer be the one to capture the wedding.
How will the photos be delivered?
All of the images we deliver to you are edited and delivered via an online gallery and a custom USB. The online gallery provides you with download options suitable to share on social media and the USB has images that are suitable to print.
You’re welcome to invest in our personalised albums, canvases and prints from En Vogue.
How do you retouch the photos?
All images are delivered as a final product. This means that basic exposure, colour correction and temperature have all been tweaked to get the bold and timeless images seen in Simon’s portfolio. We do not deliver raw images.
