Premier Weddings – Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Why should I hire an AIPP photographer?
A. A photographer accredited by the AIPP is distinguished from others by a high level of skill and professionalism. The Australian Institute of Professional Photography demands the highest standards of professional competence and business ethics in the industry. By maintaining rigorous entry criteria and a binding Code of Ethics for members, as well as providing ongoing education via seminars, workshops and events, the AIPP is a brand of trust in the photographic industry.
Q. Can you put high resolution photos onto a disk for us to keep?
A. As professional photographers, we like to have control over the end product, which means that we only work with Pro labs for accurate color management and consistent top quality prints. Therefore, we usually provide a CD of email ready images that are not print ready. If you would like the digital negatives, we can release them after 18 months.
Q. Can you please explain a typical 6 hour photo coverage?
A. If you choose 6 hours of photography, for example, that would allow time for the bride and groom getting ready, the ceremony, congratulations after the ceremony, a couple of outdoor locations, and part of the reception.
Q. If it is raining on the day and during photos where do you take us for photos?
A. There are covered outdoor areas outside the resort, as well as inside the reception venue. We have full studio lighting that can be transported to add proper lighting for indoors. Umbrellas are a great option as backup on a rainy day as well to get outdoor shots.
Q. I am interested in having some magazine parent albums how much extra are those?
A. Parent albums are a popular choice. The more you order the better the price becomes.
Q. What does the visual Photoshop Manipulation involve?
A. Some images require little to no manipulation, under perfect conditions. Most however, require some correction, such as adjusting colour balance based on time of day, much as a negative would be developed in a darkroom. Now with digital we can also soften skin tones (reducing redness), clone out people or objects in the background, bring out extra detail, reduce glare, saturate the water colour of the sea, etc…
Q. Can you suggest some locations for group photos?
A.There are plenty of stunning backdrops within a few minutes drive. For example- Zenith Beach, Tomaree Head, Shoal Bay Beach northern and southern end, Little Beach, Nelson Head lighthouse, Native Flora Gardens, Fingal Bay, Barry Park. Brent is very knowledgeable on which location is best under varying wind and weather conditions.
