Our Style, Your Memories
“We love, love, looooove...the most relaxed, candid, authentic and genuine approach to
professional wedding photography I have ever come across...amaaaaazing! Thanks guys. Xo”
(Jane Quinn, 23rd Feb 2010)

Inlighten Photography’s approach is all about capturing the moments that make your day special, from your
fathers face when he first sees you in your dress, to your mothers hug after the ceremony we will use our
experience to tell your wedding story.

While the true essence of your day will come through in your candid images, we also love to fuse that with our
fresh, artistic approach which incorporates the locations you choose. This way, your collection of images will
have a unique feel which you will always cherish.

As winners of the “Best Wedding Service of NSW”, Inlighten offers a personalised experience for your wedding
photography, both before and after your wedding day.

The Team Working For You
“Ben & I are still on a HIGH after collecting our INCREDIBLE vintage wedding albums on Saturday. We knew
Inlighten were the studio for us the moment we met our photogapher and witnessed his creative flair and
passion for photography. We couldn’t be happier with the professional, personalised service we received...
from our pre-wedding shoot to the phone call we got to say our albums were ready - ahead of schedule!
Thank you – we will treasure the moments you captured on our special day, forever xx.”
(Kathy & Ben, wedding: 27th Feb 2010)

Inlighten Photography is a boutique studio with a fresh, young, devoted team who all share a love of weddings.
We offer only the finest service and we like to keep our approach very personal from the moment you first call
or step into the studio.

Our commitment to our clients means you can be confident you have chosen the best. With over 40 years
experience, our photographers have the knowledge and passion to capture every precious moment of your
wedding. Choosing your wedding photographer is a big decision. Whilst a love of their work is very important,
you must also feel comfortable with them, as your photographer will be a huge part of your day.

Inlighten has been lucky enough to be a part of many cultural weddings including Indian, Chinese, Italian,
Greek, Catholic, Jewish and many more, ranging in size from 6 to 600 guests. This exposure to diversity means
our photographers know their limitations, and expectations, at every minute of the day.

Frequently Asked Questions
1. Do we get to meet the photographer at the first meeting and is this our photographer on the day?
YES! During your initial meeting you will always meet the photographer available on your day along with your
client manager, who will be there throughout your entire experience with us. The photographer whom you
meet, will be your head photographer for your wedding day. We dont hold dates, so we do recommend con-
firming your booking as soon as possibleto ensure your personal photographer is available.

2. Do we get two photographers?
Yes, depending on the size of your wedding you will get two of our experienced photographers. One will be
the head photographer whom you met at your initial meeting, and the assistant will be the second photographer.
The head photographer will often conclude shooting at the start of the Reception, at which point the second
photographer will become the main photographer of your reception. Depending upon the number of guests,
a second shooter for the reception can also be included.

3. Is the assistant a professional photographer?
Yes! All of our second photographers are professional photographers in their own right.

4. How long is the typical coverage for a wedding day?
We usually suggest commencing your coverage at the bridal preparation, and continuing until the end of
the bridal dance. Extended coverage until the end of the reception is available. The exact number of hours
required depends on your ceremony time and plans for your day.

5. How many photos are taken and how many locations can we go to during the day?
As many as you like! We shoot an unlimited amount of photos, usually estimating about 100 per hour.

6. What type of equipment do you use?
Each photographer carries a main set and a back up set of professional Canon camera equipment, with a
range of lenses from super wide to super zoom. This ensures we can capture the whole scene as a
beautiful landscape, as well as the close up moments. Typically our photographers have 21 megapixel digital
SLR cameras, that can produce a file size suitable for printing on a bill board. Our photographers also carry
back up devices to keep your images safe on the day.

7. How do you back up your images?
In addition to portable back ups on your wedding day, our photographers usually return to our studio on your
wedding night, to download to our secure on & off site archive storage server. This enables several copies of
your images to be stored on multiple media, in several locations, to keep them safe.

8. Are you a member of the AIPP?
Yes, any studios you are considering should be. We are also a member of the Australian Bridal Service (ABS).

9. Should I be worried if it rains on the day?
Not at all, we have actually taken some of our most beautiful shots in the rain, or on overcast days. Our
photographers are very experienced in all type of weather conditions. You’ll be surprised how amazing some
rain shots come out - especially with out set of matching white umbrellas!

Frequently Asked Questions (cont.)
10. Do we get to keep the high resolution files/negatives from our wedding?
Yes, every package includes an option to have your high resolution files on cd.

11. How soon after our wedding will we get to see our photos?
We have an extremely fast turn around process! Approximately three weeks after your wedding day, we invite
you back into our studio for a viewing session of all your photos, set to music on our high definition TV screen.
As a bonus, we have recently added “Sneak Peeks” to our Face Book page, which go up the week following
your wedding and allow you to share some of the highlights of your day, with family and friends!

12. Do we get to pick the photos for our album?
Yes! During the viewing session three weeks after your wedding day, we block out a few hours of time so that
you can choose every photo you would like in your album. It is extremely important that you have a say as to
which photos you like and want to see displayed in your beautiful album.

13. Is our album personally designed with us? Can we have input and design our own album?
YES! Once you have chosen your favorite photos to see in your album, our designers create a beautiful layout
so you can visually see exactly how the album will look. We invite you back into our studio to view a slideshow
of your album and at that time work with you hand in hand to edit and complete the album together. This
ensures that you love your album, because every image and every page design has been individually
selected by you.

14. Can I add extra sides in my album?
Yes! At any time we are more then happy for you to add sides to your album. We offer a pre wedding discount
if you choose to add additional sides prior to your wedding. This is extremely popular as most of our couples love
their photos so much they prefer a larger album to ensure their story is told perfectly.

15. How soon will our album be ready?
From the date you sign off on your completed layout, your hand made, custom designed and photoshopped
album will be ready in approximately 12 - 15 weeks.

16. Do you include photoshop?
Photo shop work on the photos in your album is included, with the amount of photoshop you wish to have
being completely up to you. Retouching may include skin retouching, colour enhancement (eg. Vintage) or
removel of distractions (such as green exit signs in churches!). We will advise what photoshop work is possible
at your album viewing meeting.

17. Can I get my photos printed on canvas, acrylic, in parents albums or as a framed enlargement?
Yes! We offer a variety of options to have enlargements of your beautiful photos. In our studio you will see an
example of each on display. This is a great gift to parents and a gorgeous art piece for your home.

18. Can I change the inclusions in my package?
Yes, we are always willing to work with you to get you exactly what you would like in a package.

19. Do you hold dates?
No. We are lucky to have amazing talented photographers that do get booked up pretty quickly. This is some-
thing we have never been able to do because of the amount of enquiries for the same date. We always offer
great packages for booking on the night of meeting. But once you choose to book us, your chosen photogra-
pher is locked in, just for you.
