Is there travel costs associated with getting the photographer(s) to my wedding?
We photograph events primarily in the Newcastle, Hunter Valley + Sydney areas but also love to travel to you. If your wedding is outside of these principal areas, we will discuss with you light travel costs additional to your package.
The Wedding Package Extra's
Bride & Groom Preps A very valuable collection of photographs. Your photographer will arrive at a agreed upon time to get images of both bridal parties separately as they are hanging out before the ceremony and doing their final touches. This helps tell a more complete story of the day and capture those exciting & anticipating moments.
Honeymoon Highlights In the following days after your wedding, you will notice your friends & family posting their perspective of your amazing day. As you can imagine, you will be itching to post something yourself! How awesome to be able to have 3 of your professionally shot & edited images sent to you within just 3 days (or sooner) after your wedding!
Skin Touch Ups This extra really gives you an added confidence and assurance for your day. Things like acne, scars, stress lines and more can be completely edited out of your images. The end result is very natural looking and subtle. You will be able to select 20 of your favourite images for skin touch ups.
Audiovisual An audiovisual is your wedding day story with music in the form of an mp4 & vimeo link which you can easily share online as well as watch on your smart tv, smart phone, tablet and desktop. This is a another really nice way to be able to remember your wedding day, and share the story with your loved ones.
Engagement Shoot You'll find your wedding day is as much about the journey as it is about the day itself. Your engagement shoot will be a relaxed shoot with Samuel Jacob where you go to a place of choice at an ideal time, and get some beautiful images. Valued at $500, however if you pay for your wedding package upfront, your engagement shoot will be 100% discounted.
Stay Until The Bride & Groom Farewell After the reception formalities (the speeches, the first dance etc.) Sam will leave as he has captured everything that is needed for the day. However, if you have a special farewell planned that you would love captured, you can add this onto your package & Sam will stay right through until the very end of the night.
Second Photographer Sam has a small group of talented photographers who are always excited & willing to jump on board a wedding. This means throughout the day you can have two perspectives of the same moment. This is very valuable as it creates even more depth to the memory of your day.
How long is the second photographer's half day & full day?
Having a second photographer is a fantastic luxury on your most important day. In second shooter world, a half day is from the start of your wedding (whether that be preps or ceremony) through to the photo shoot. A full day is from the start of your wedding right through until the end of the reception formalities.
How many images will we receive?
The number of photographs you receive will ultimately depend on your package. However, with our set base package you can expect to recieve around 400 - 500 photographs. This is not a guarantee, but an estimate based on our previous weddings. The wedding images shown on this website are just a sample, not the full amount of images that the couple received.
Will the digital images be print ready?
You betcha! All of our images are high resolution and are perfect for printing. In other words, you could print them as big as your lounge room floor and they’d still look as sharp as a tack.
Can I ask to receive every photo that was captured on the day?
On your day, you may notice that we are clicking a lot! This is good news because we want to get as many moments as possible to give you. We can assure you though, that every photo we give you is the best of those moments.
What is the 'Fast Highlight Images' Extra?
We know that you'll want to see your photos as soon as possible and your anticipation will be wild! To bring you ease, we will Dropbox to you 5 photo highlights within a week of your wedding if you add the Highlights Package extra to your package. We have found it is super valuable for you to be able to have these images to share around as soon as possible.
How long until we receive our photo's back?
Your wedding photos are very important to us, so we want to ensure your day is captured and presented in the best way possible. The timing range can be up to 3 months, but be assured that we’ll be working on your photos diligently.
What do you mean by 'Reception Formalities'?
We consider reception formalities as everything on your run sheet from top to tail being ticked off. Usually this means such things including, the speeches, Bride + Grooms first dance and cutting of the cake. If you’d like a photographer to stay to capture the party, dance floor and your exit, please choose to select this when we discuss your package and extra’s.
I'm keen on the engagement shoot, where will we go?
Engagement shoots are specifically tailored to capture the essence of who you are as a couple. We want to get to know you and have some fun along the way. If you have a location option up your sleeve, please, let us know. However, if you’re feeling laissez faire about the location; don’t fret! We’ll have a fantastic spot for you.
What happens if the photographer is sick on the day?
Samueljacob Photography has a team of great shooters, and an even larger network of creative friends in the photography world. In the event of an emergency, first, we will contact every shooter our team. If all our shooters are on weddings that day, we will then contact friends of Samueljacob Photography in the wider creative network to shoot for us. In absolute worst case scenario, we often train photographers to equip them to be skilled, creative and tasteful. These photographers will often not be booked out year round and could shoot in the event of an emergency. All images are edited by Samueljacob to produce the style that you love.
