Q & A Wedding Photography

There is lot to consider when looking for a photographer. I’ve put together some of my most frequent questions. Hopefully this will help with the process.

Where are you based and do you travel?

I'm currently located in Wellington but you'll often see me hanging out in Taranaki and other parts of NZ. If you're getting married out of Wellington, no problem, I can travel to you.

What types of packages do you have to offer?

I have three different packages for you to choose from. These range from half day to full day coverage. I understand that not everyone wants the full deal, so I can create a custom package for you if you are having an intimate wedding and only want limited coverage.

What is the price of your photography?

My most popular wedding package starts at $3200 NZD. I understand budget is something you will need to consider when it comes planning your wedding. One thing to keep in mind is your wedding photos will last forever and the investment will be well worth it.

To request a full list of pricing, please get in touch with more details about your needs.

Can we meet before we make a decision?

Absolutely! I love hearing ideas and getting to know couples. It would be great to meet with you in person or over skype. Coffee or wine, you pick?

Do you use a second shooter?

Yes! Most of my packages I will have a second photographer with me. It’s a big day for everyone and I want to make sure we make the most of out the opportunities for photos. There is no extra cost for this.

How long does it take to receive my images?

I aim for 4-6 weeks. It can be a lengthy process culling and then editing all of the images for you, good things can take time and I pride myself in producing the best results.

How many images will I receive?

This depends on the type of package you go for. It can range from 600 - 1000 different files.

How will I receive the images?

I will first deliver these to you in an online gallery. The gallery will be yours to share with friends and family so they too can enjoy the photos. I’ll also send you a USB stick which will contain high resolution files which are great for printing.

What happens if it rains?

They say this is good luck! Nothing to worry about, lets talk about a plan B.

What is required to make a booking?

I have a booking agreement and a deposit which secures your date.

Who owns copyright of the photographs?

Copyright remains the property of Jaymee Photography, you will have permission to use the images for non-commercial purposes, including printing and sharing as many as you would like with friends and family.

Waihoanga Lodge Otaki - Yuming and Bevan's wedding

Yuming and Bevan loved the idea of an outdoor wedding surrounded by nature. Waihoanga Lodge in Otaki was the perfect venue for making this happen.

The day started off with some rain which didn’t bother anyone. I loved the relaxed and easy going atmosphere. Yuming looked so beautiful in her red dress! Take a look.

Boomrock Wedding - Lizzy and Luke

Luke and Lizzy started their day in Wellington City getting ready with friends and family, followed by their ceremony at St Mary of the Angels. This Chruch has to be one of my favourites in Wellington.

We then made our way out to Boomrock for their reception party, stopping for bridal party photos along the way. The view was stunning, as always!

I loved the delicate and modern details of this wedding, combined with the rustic wood textures of the pine forest and Boomrock.

Outdoor Wedding at Sudbury - Shannon and Reese

I was really excited to shoot this wedding with Jenny Siaosi because it was my first time at Sudbury. It was also fun photographing Reese and his Groomsmen getting ready at Solemer in Peka Peka beach.

Shannon and Reese decided to do their bridal party photos before their ceremony, which also meant having a bridal reveal for Shannon. Such a special moment for these two!
