Hi I’m Nic and I’m a photographer not writer, so I will keep this short.
Anyone heard of the Bairnsdale Ulcer?
Well, I had one of them which meant I was confined within the walls of my house for months on end.
While I spent these days’ horizontal on a purple couch at my parents’ house, I found copy after copy of my dad’s photography magazines. Bored and frustrated with my flesh-eating ulcer I started to devour them and slowly figure out how to use the many dials and buttons on a camera.
Eventually I could walk, surf and have fun again and naturally this camera started coming with me everywhere. It filled the void the ulcer once occupied.
Now I am fortunate enough to have turned this passion into a career.
A career that sees me capture; thousands of precious moments on wedding days, waves in the surf and foreign cities. It allows me to work with some inspiring brands and individuals alike.
If any of my work resonates with you, and you would like some more information on wedding packages or photography services please drop me a line here.DROP ME A LINE HERE.
Wedding are supposed to be fun and stress free! I describe myself and my photography style as relaxed, candid, colourful and fun.
I offer a number of varying options to capture those once in a lifetime moments. Wedding photography starts from $1950, please shoot me an email for all package options and pricing.
To lock-in the date of your wedding day a non refundable deposit of $500 is to be paid. The remainder of the balance can be paid a minimum of 2 weeks before your wedding day.
It really is up to you if you want to meet and chat prior to booking. I’m more than happy to meet and have a chat/ beer/coffee or all 3! I can also send you full wedding days for you to look through- just ask.
I always recommend a final chat (phone or in person) 3-6 weeks out from your wedding day to discuss those finer details and timelines (every thing is usually pretty organised then!) Often a good place for this to happen at the wedding venue or portrait location.
Photos are meant to be printed and not just viewed as pixels on your computer screen that’s why all package options come with a series of 6x4 matte photo prints. You will receive a USB with high resolution and internet sized images (JPEGS).
All images will be individually edited by me. I do not supply RAW files. All images are watermark free. Also provided is an online gallery where you can view, share and download your images.
I don’t think many people like getting their photo taken but hopefully within a short period of time you’ll forget I’m even there (or just get used to me)!
I take a photojournalist approach and aim to produce candid photos of your special day, meaning I’m more fly on the wall than in everyone’s face! At times I might give you a little bit of direction especially during the family, bridal party and portrait sessions.
Weddings come in many shapes and minimum is 30 minutes all the way up to 90 minutes. The less travel we have to do the better and its always an idea to have at least a couple of epic spots thought out beforehand- so we aren’t searching on the day!
Light is everything!!!!! The best light of the day is the hour leading up to sunset! I ask all my couples to take 10mins out from the party at this stage to capture a few shots- but that is up to you.
I’ll go anywhere from Geelong to New York and anywhere in between- I just want to capture all the love! Weddings more than 100km from Geelong do have some additional costs (starting from $100- a tank of petrol).
For international and interstate travel above package prices apply along with additional costs for flight and accommodation- get in contact for a quote (Jetstar is often quite cheap, I’m not precious).
I always send a first look of about 25 images within 24 hours! From then, the complete process usually takes a maximum of 6 weeks, however I do try my best tominimise this time.
