How many photographers work at Figtree Wedding Photography?
We have a small team of professional and talented wedding photographers. The team has slowly grown since 2011 as the demand for our style of wedding photography increased. We currently have four Associate (first photographers) and a team of second photographers that assist on the wedding day.
What camera gear do you use?
All of our photographers use professional grade camera bodies (both Nikon and Canon), with a range of professional lenses and flash equipment. Each of our photographers work throughout the day with two professional camera bodies, with dual card slots to ensure that every image is backed up throughout the day.
How would you describe the style of wedding photography?
Our photographers shoot to create a story. They photograph in a documentary style, capturing all of the details in a way that portrays a realistic series of images from your day. We limit our focus on posing, and concentrate on the real moments that make your day what it is.
Do you use second photographers on a wedding day?
Yes! We love using second photographers to capture new angles, and a different perspective on the day. We especially like to use a second photographer with our large bridal weddings. Read more about the advantages of a second shooter here.
How many photos do you take on a wedding day?
It varies, but usually there are a few thousand images from the day. We go through and cull each photo one-by-one eliminating any duplicates and images with closed eyes and end up with a sweet spot of around 700-800 images for a full day (depending on the hours of coverage).
Do we get access to the high resolution images?
Yes! This is a definite. We give you all of your high resolution images with full copyright on a USB so you can reproduce and print and at your leisure.
Where are you based?
We are based in Casuarina NSW. Halfway between Byron Bay and the Gold Coast and so close to Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast. We travel anywhere and everywhere for weddings though and love beautiful destination weddings!
Do you charge travel fees?
Only when we have to drive for many hours, or jump on a plane. Contact us for more information on an exact price to your location.
Do you back up your images?
Absolutely! Not only do we shoot every image to two cards, we back up the images in the studio three times with one copy kept offsite until the final USB is delivered to you. We take this part of our job so seriously, and it is part of what makes us a professional studio.
What are the next steps if we want to book in our wedding date?
It’s easy. Just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your wedding details, and we will send you through an automated booking form, contract and an invoice for a $850 initial payment/deposit to secure your date.
What happens after the wedding day?
We aim to complete your images within 8 weeks. Once they are edited and ready to go, we will invite you to an online gallery link that you can share with your family and friends, and we then post your USB and handmade box.
Do you offer albums and prints?
We love to see your day in print. It makes us so happy! We can work with you to create an album or organise prints that will last a lifetime.
Do you provide an online gallery of our wedding images?
Yes! You can share the online gallery with family and friends too.
