How will the Wedding Photos Look?
Orlando Sydney’s editing is done in house, not farmed out overseas, and is absolutely without using the cliché Instagram like textures or tones. Our processing style is contemporary, natural and clean of un-natural over processing. It also has more of an editorial style rather than others with that ‘dreamy out of focus’ look. This is an important distinction as processing and curating plays a big part in the look and feel of your photo album.
Have a look through the wedding photo gallery above. These photos have been chosen to give you a good idea on what your photos will look like in various lighting conditions. It also shows the very different types of small weddings we photograph. We love diversity.
What is an Intimate or Small Wedding Anyway?
Our Definition of an Intimate Wedding
We define a small wedding as having your close friends and family attending.
So Who is Getting Married?
There were 119,188 marriages in Australia; increased by 6,234 (5.5%) from the previous year. The median marriage age was 32.4 years for males and 30.5 years for females. How does this compare to your friends and family?
Another very interesting fact is that 79.7% of males and 81.0% of females got married for the first time. And the most popular way to be married in four out of five (79.7%) marriages was by a civil celebrant.
And the long awaited statistics on same-sex marriages in Australia is available after it became legal, geez, finally our federal government caught up. Same sex marriages are 5.5% of all weddings; that’s 6,538 very happy couples. The girls in same-sex relationships make up nearly 60% of same-sex marriages. Same-sex couples tend to get married a little older than the hetero’s, being around 40 years old and up. Source
Are there print packages bundled together?
We love it when our photos live in print. The included prints are as listed in the packages above. We can however add a variety of print options bundled with your package. The prices will be very sharp if booked prior to your big day.
Any second shooters?
For small weddings second shooters are often not required except when the photographers need to be at two location, for example; one of the couple is getting ready at a different location to the other. Talk to us about your plans for the day and we’ll either allocate one of our trusted second photographers or otherwise.
Do hi res files costs more?
All our jpgs are clean of watermarks and supplied in hi resolution at no extra cost.
How Many Photos will I get?
There are no limits on the amount of photos. The actual quantity varies with length of time, how many people and the variety of activities. We always capture more on the day than is required to tell your story for the mindfully curated album.
Can you take group portraits with the family?
Absolutely, we understand that many family members only catch up every so often so the group photos will be treasured.
What does the photography fee normally include?
The photography fee also takes into account the detailed photo processing, for both the web and print ready files and the important curation of the photo album. And together with years of experience in countless indoor and outdoor, small and very large events around Eastern Australia gives you the value add of our unique style.
Common photo packages include; photography, agreed minimum hours, local travel, optional getting ready photos, wall and thank you prints.
