Frequently Asked Questions
Have a question that isn’t listed below? Shoot me an email.
We are pretty awkward in front of the camera, will this make the portraits part of the day uncomfortable?
No way José. If you browse my portfolio you'll find carefree laughter, intimate moments, and confident smiles...all coming from self proclaimed "awkward couples".
It's my biggest aim to help you relax and direct in a way that doesn't feel too contrived, all while maintaining focus on the connection between you, so that you can simply be yourselves.
Can I give you a shot list for all the photos I want captured on the day?
I love hearing what you're most excited about being photographed during your wedding. Feel free to send me your Pinterest board of faves, but keep in mind that I only use this to better understand your vision and that I don't copy exact shots. My style is to document your beautiful day as it unfolds organically.
Why should we consider investing in the Evergold Collection?
I've priced my top collection so that you get more bang for your buck than if you were to add these extras separately. Here are the biggest benefits included of the Evergold Collection:
1) AN ALBUM! Hey Hi Hello, these books are stunning. They're handcrafted from the finest quality materials and will last a lifetime, somewhere that you can actually see your blissful photos on a daily basis. You choose the look.
2) Engagement Session. Use it for something fun, as an excuse to get glammed up and hang with your fiancé somewhere cool, all while getting comfy in front of the camera to make your wedding photos a breeze.
3) All day coverage from hairspray to disco ball.
It's definitely an investment, but one your future self will totally appreciate.
Do you have any timeline suggestions?
Do I ever!
The biggest piece of advice I can lend is this: Give yourself plenty of time.
Time to get ready, time to savour the first few moments following your vows. Time to just hang with your best friends during bridal party shots.
I promise that if you allow enough time to savour all of these moments rather than rushing through to the next part of the day, you'll be able to remember it all much more clearly and have truly authentic photographs.
I also send out additional timeline tips after booking and meet with you over coffee about 6 weeks before your date to make a detailed outline for smooth sailing.
How long until we receive our final gallery?
I have a 10 week promise! I take my time perfecting in post, but I'm just as excited to deliver your final gallery/prints/album as you are to receive it.
Are you a LGBTQIA+ friendly business?
I am an LGBTQI+ ally and supporter of all kinds of love!
Goldlight Photography was built with my personal values at the forefront. I do not support discrimination of any kind and am always looking for new ways to be more inclusive.
Do we get every photo you take?
Trust me, you do not want 3,000+ photos!
One of my favourite stages is reviewing your photos and finding those in-between moments that really speak up, the stills that evoke raw emotion and are an instant memory in art form.
Of course I include all of the key moments throughout the day, but not the versions that are blurry or unflattering. I only deliver those that meet my professional standard and as always, I aim for quality over quantity. Depending on the amount of coverage, final delivery is around 600-900 images from the day.
Do I have to design the album myself?
You don't have to worry about a thing! (Unless you want to)
I select the best photos from the day and expertly design the spread layouts to create a beautiful curation of storytelling imagery from your day that will last a lifetime and passed down to generations that follow.
Of course I send this off to you for approval before printing, where you'll be able to make any digital notes on the design or swap out any photos.
I try to make it as easy as possible for you to get your hands on one of these bad boys.
We're having a destination wedding, do you travel?
Abso-freaking-lutey! I'm always looking for any excuse to hop on a plane and go adventure. Especially for love. Reach out through my contact form and tell me a little about yourself and your plans, we can work something out.
