If you require an extra photographer, please not that the cost is an additional: $350. I am very comfortable shooting a wedding of 150+ people on my own. If you really feel it would give you better coverage to have another set of eyes on your big day, let me know and I can suggest the best option for you.

Because all projects are different, I prefer to work with you to come up with a service cost that’s reasonable for the work being done. Please contact me for more details.

How would you describe your photography style?

My favourite type of shots always seem to involve candor. I enjoy capturing the human condition and strive to do this by getting to know you a little bit before I go any further. I don’t do too many posed shots and I like to give minimal direction so that you can find what feels right to you.

Do you shoot more than just people?

Yes! I really love food and product photography. I am a self-taught food photographer and I use a lot of what I learnt from there to style or photography products as well. You can check out some of my food photos on my blog egeedee.com

Did you study photography?

Nope! I’m learning as I go but I’ve been making photos since 2005(!) so I felt like this was a good time to do this professionally.

What do you recommend we wear?

I generally tell people to go with what feels comfortable but since that’s too open-ended, here are a few suggestions for the various types of shoots.

Headshots: First think of the vibe you want to create through your photos and what your line of work is. For a corporate headshot? Choose professional attire like button-down tops, a blazer, suit jacket, pants or a skirt. Stick to neutral colours but also take into account what complements your skin tone. Some folks might look too washed out in white so in that case, brights like red or yellow would work out perfectly. Try to stay away from busy prints to keep the attention on your eyes.

For a more semi-formal or creative headshot, you will have a lot more freedom, which can also feel a lot more restrictive at times. So remember the same guidelines as above but keep your personal style at the top of the priority list.

Family photos: I think your family looks amazing when you co-ordinate outfit colours. Parents, pick a palette and play dress-up within the colour scheme. For example, if you pick yellow and grey, try to add one or more of those colours in all your outfits. If you want suggestions for what colours go well together in my opinion, discuss it with me before your shoot and I will give you some tips.

Couples: This is where I say to let you personal styles shine! Keep comfort on top of your list. If you want to wear shoes that might not be too comfortable for standing or walking in, bring a change so you can get out of them as soon as the shoot is done. Same with jackets or a warm item of clothing you can cloak yourself in if it gets cold.

Newborn photos: I don’t pose newborns in anything other than their natural states so if you would like to use props, please let me know and I will accommodate them in my shot list. Soft, neutral colours always work with babies so consider your babies’ skin tone and decide what’s best.
