Wedding Photography FAQ

How do we book SoulFlare?


Simply send us an inquiry via the contact page. We will check to make sure we are available on your wedding date first. If we are available and you are happy, we can talk further via phone/zoom to sort out the finer details of our wedding photography offers.




How would you describe your photography style?


Candid, natural, modern. Our goal is to create amazing, story-telling images that will last a lifetime. Most people on their wedding day don’t want to be standing around all day posing. You want to be having fun and enjoying your special day to the fullest. We will be there capturing natural moments as they happen. Yes, there’s always room for a couple of formal shots with the family but for the most part, you won’t even notice we are taking photos. You don’t want to feel awkward on your day. Our candid approach means you can relax and have some fun.




Who will be my photographer?


We are very proud of our team here at SoulFlare, we have gone to great lengths to ensure the photographers who work for us are top-notch! Once we have a chat with you we will pair you with a photographer who will be the most suitable match.




Can we meet our photographer before we book?


Of course! We usually do this via facetime/zoom due to the number of weddings we book, this is the most efficient way for all of us to meet face to face.




When should we book?


The majority of our couples book us at least 1 year in advance. We have a limited number of weddings we can do per year so as soon as you have begun planning we would recommend booking ASAP so you don’t miss out.




Do you do pencil bookings?


Unfortunately, we do not. A deposit of $900 is required to lock in your wedding date.




How and when do we pay?


If you decide to book with us you will be issued an invoice for your booking where you can pay via bank transfer or PayPal. We do require a deposit of $900 to secure the date and the remainder of the balance is due 2 weeks prior to your wedding day.




We don't like posed wedding photos. Will you make us pose?


We shoot most of the day in a documentary style. We will not put you in any awkward poses and we are all about capturing real moments as they unfold on your wedding day. A lot of the time you will not even notice us. There are times throughout the day where we will need to give you a little bit of direction, especially during the bridal party and couple portraits but we like to keep things natural and fun.




When is the best time for photos?


The best time for portraits is usually one hour before sunset to about 15 minutes after the sun has set. In this window, the light is soft and usually pretty even giving the most flattering look. In reality, this doesn’t always work for all weddings, especially during daylight savings. If you are up for it, we can steal you away for 10 minutes at sunset to get some beautiful golden hour shots as well.




How and when do we receive our images?


You will receive a selection of highlights for the “gram” within 48 hours after your wedding day. 2 weeks after your wedding you will receive your beautiful online gallery. The gallery will contain your wedding photography images that are both high resolution for printing and standard resolution for the web. If you have chosen to go with a photo album they normally take 6-8 weeks after you have chosen your images.




Do you photograph weddings outside of Melbourne?


Yes, we do! We don’t charge any extra if the wedding is within 2 hours of Melbourne. If your wedding is a destination wedding get in touch for a personalised quote.




How many photos do we receive?


We don’t have a limit on the number of photos you receive, and it will vary depending on what package you decide to go with. As a guide, if you decide to go the 10 hour package you should expect to receive approximately 600-1000 images.




Is it just 1 photographer taking photos on the day?


That will depend on what package you decide to go with. You have the option of adding a second photographer if needed.




Do we need a second photographer?


A second photographer is an additional option and is recommended for weddings over 100 guests in size or if you and your partner are getting ready further than 30 minutes apart.




Do you have backup equipment and procedures in place for our images after our wedding day?


We sure do. We shoot with two cameras, both with dual memory cards for redundancy, so there are duplicate copies of your images on both cameras. The moment we are home from your wedding all images are backed up to 3 different locations for added precaution.




Do we have to feed you?


That would be great please :) Weddings are huge days for us photographers! So ensuring we are fueled up and ready to capture amazing images is a big help.




Do you visit the venue/location before the wedding?


No, not usually. We are confident in our ability and have photographed enough weddings to be more that comfortable getting the best results possible in any environment we are thrown into. A lot of our weddings are a decent drive from where we are located so it would also be quite an expense & time to go and visit every venue beforehand.
