The Process

South West Weddings

FAQ's

Where are you based? Are you available for Perth, South West, and destination weddings?

01.

My business was based in Perth for 12 years but I have now relocated to the South West of W.A. (where I grew up).

The great news is I frequently travel between both regions and I'm 100% comfortable (not to mention experienced) shooting in either place! Travel for Perth & South West weddings is included in all of my packages. The cost of travel outside of these regions can be custom quoted on request.

Will you (Jodie) be the photographer on the day? Do we meet before our wedding?

02.

Yes! I shoot solo on the day and feel totally comfortable and confident in my ability to handle any wedding alone.

I always suggest that my couples meet with me via Zoom at some point in the lead up to their day (either before or after you book). After all, I want to get to know you, plus it gives me a chance to personalise your day and run through your wedding plans.

What if I don’t know how much coverage I need

03.

just a few of my most asked questions... feel free to email me directly if you would like to ask anything not covered here.

INFO@MERGEPHOTOGRAPHY.COM.AU

Not a problem! My minimum amount of hours on any given shoot is three, while my maximum is ten. Sometimes we don’t know how exactly how the day will play out until we get a little closer to it, so don’t worry; you’re more than welcome to adjust your coverage amount any time after locking in your booking.

Do I get copyright of my images?

How will I receive my images? Will they be editied?

04.

07.

All of my collections come with the high-resolution images for printing. With these you’ll have a shared copyright with Merge. This means that you have the rights to reproduce your images in any way you like, while Merge retains the rights to use the images for promotional material, social media, advertising and display, etc. I’ve found that this is the best approach for both parties to get the most out of our shoot together.

First of all, I run through the shots and take out all the test shots and ones where people have their eyes closed (there are more than you think). After that, I tweak my selections one by one with post-processing software. I supply your images in a mixture of colour and black and white (the selection of which is at my discretion during editing). The finished high-resolution images will then be supplied to you via a personalised, downloadable online gallery. From there, you can download both the high-resolution images (for printing) and the low-resolution images (for social media). Your private gallery is hosted through my website for six months, beautifully presented and complete with a personal store to streamline the process of printing and sharing with your loved ones.

How long will it take to get the images from my wedding/see my online proof/receive my album?

05.

On average, the turnaround for my digital packages and online proofs is approximately 6-8 weeks (although I don’t believe in rushing work just to make a deadline). Please note, this is just a guide; it can and will change depending on the time of year and how busy my season is. If you’ve selected a personalised album, this will be ready 8-12 weeks after you’ve approved your design.

How about same sex marriage?

Do you offer RAW files?

06.

08.

Of course! Australia has finally legalised same-sex marriage and I couldn’t be more excited to start photographing same-sex weddings in Perth, South West and wherever else I’m invited!

I’m afraid I don’t. The editing process for my images is just as important to me as the shooting. I put a lot of time and consideration into each and every shot. However, you will receive high-res JPG files (that you can print as much of as you like), as well as low-res files designed to share online.
