I'm honoured to be considered as your photographer!
Below is some more information on my style, what is included in the wedding packages and some helpful hints for planning your day!


MY APPROACH TO WEDDINGS
My approach to photography is similar to my personality, relaxed and easy going.
I use a combination of documentary + portrait style photography. 
This means I'll capture beautiful portraits of you as husband and wife, along with candid images of you and your guests celebrating throughout the day. This combination of images will convey all the love and emotion of the day, plus all the moments in between. I'll tell the full story of your unique wedding, so that you can relive it again and again. 

This approach, in my experience, is the perfect balance. 

 

HOW LONG WILL YOU BE THERE FOR?
I've found that 8-10 hours is the generally the right amount of time to capture the full story of your day. Depending on your style, you may add a few more hours in the morning, getting ready (especially ladies, if you have a 3+ bridesmaids), or a few more hours after dinner to show off your killer moves on the dance floor!
Having a 3 day celebration? Or going to elope somewhere magical? Let me know and we can discuss further!

HOW MANY PHOTOS WILL WE RECEIVE?
From a full day wedding you will receive 500-800+ photos

HOW LONG AFTER THE WEDDING DOES IT TAKE TO GET OUR PHOTOS?
I carefully hand edit each and every one of your photos, so they're the absolute best for you, this can take some time.
You will receive a beautifully hand crafted slideshow of your images 3-4 weeks after your wedding date.
Within 4-9 weeks of your wedding I will hand deliver or post your USB of high resolution digital files.

DO WE NEED TO FEED YOU?
Yes please! Don't forget to arrange a meal for your photographer [I'm vegetarian!]. A full day on my feet, capturing everything that's happening is hard work, I would really appreciate if you could organise a meal for me!

TRAVEL
I'm a big fan of travel! Photography has taken me all over the world to places such as Canada + Ireland! If you're not getting married on the Sunshine Coast, no worries! Ask me about travel costs.

For your engagement shoot, I love to incorporate something you both enjoy doing together! For example I've had couples bring along a picnic because it's something they often do together, I even recently had a motorbike in a shoot because they had their first date on it!

I love engagement shoots! And I think you will to, because:

- It's really just a time to hang out and do something you love together! 
- It's a great way for me to get to know you both and what you love!
- You'll be even more comfortable in front of the camera on your wedding day because you'll have done it before (its super easy anyway!)
- You'll get beautiful captures of you and your partner that represent this time in your lives. 
- Wedding photos are amazing but these photos in your "normal clothes" represent your personalities and your unique story - that's something pretty special to be treasured I think!

STRUCTURE OF THE DAY
Each wedding is unique, to make it as easy going as possible for you and your partner, I'll design a run sheet specifically for your day, so you know exactly where I'll be at all times. 

FAMILY PHOTOS
If you'd like family photos taken on your wedding day, these usually take about 15 minutes. I've found that the best time to do this is
just after you've walked down the aisle and your
guests have all had some time to congratulate you. 
We'll work together to make sure all the family photos you'd like are captured!
 
COUPLE PORTRAITS 
The only time on your wedding day that's more hands-on is during your short break away from everyone to capture your couple portraits. During this portrait session I'll give you helpful direction and together we'll avoid cheesy 80's wedding poses. This time with just the two of you, allows you to slow down and appreciate everything that's happening. It's a special opportunity to spend some quality time together on your wedding day (before the party starts!) I'll give some direction but will also allow you to relax into one another and soak in your newly wed status! (and get some beautiful couple portraits while you're at it!) 

 
 

These beautifully crafted fine art albums have flat lay pages for
seamless images without distraction and are each uniquely designed by yours truly. 
 There are options for a black leather cover or a grey linen cover in either a medium size 8x8" album or a large 10x10" album.

I delight in hand selecting each image and creating a beautiful printed story of your day. While you're away on your honeymoon I'll be crafting your album so it's all printed and ready to send to you within 6-10 weeks after your wedding.  
Each album has a minimum of 30 pages.  

I strongly believe in printing photos and think there's nothing better than showing your friends and family your wedding story in print! 

Hannah + Joe sum up every couples response to their album: 
“Thank you soooo much , we received the album the day after you sent it - Wow! Honestly, It’s amazing, amazing, amazing. I love it so much! We can't wait to show everyone! Thank you so much for being our photographer, couldn’t have had anyone better. You are incredible!” - Hannah + Joe

WE WANT YOU TO BE APART OF OUR WEDDING DAY! 
HOW DO WE BOOK?

That's wonderful! If we haven't met already, I would love to chat over a coffee or over Skype, so we can officially meet face to face!
Shoot me an email at:  hello@amyhiggphoto.com

After we've connected I'll send you a contract to sign
and an invoice.
Your date will be locked in as soon as your deposit is paid
[1/3 of your total payment]  

DEPOSIT + PAYMENT
For ease during your planning time, full payment
is made in three parts.

1/3 is due upon booking [deposit]
1/3 is due three months before the wedding
1/3 is due one month before the wedding

All payments can be made via direct deposit, your invoice will provide the bank account details.

 

I've been apart of a few weddings and want every bride and groom to have the absolute best experience planning your wedding, here's some helpful recommendations I've discovered:

THROW OUT THE RULE BOOK AND MAKE THE DAY YOURS
There's no rules to how a wedding day should be structured or how it should look, at the core it's about you and your partner coming together as one! So, maybe you want a small ceremony and a big party the next day? Maybe you want to get ready together? Or maybe you want to say your vows to each other privately first before you see everyone?
Use the inspiration around you, but make it whatever reflects you both.


ENJOY YOUR TIME BEING ENGAGED
It's easy to get all consumed in wedding planning! But being engaged is a beautiful time to be treasured. I would recommend making certain times to chat about your wedding or make sure there's designated times when your pouring into each other, without mentioning the next thing you have to check off the wedding list! This makes the planning more efficient and won't feel all consuming!
