CHRIS JACK WEDDING FAQ
WhO IS CHRIS JACK?
I am married with two beautiful daughters and a very understanding wife, and live in Wynnum, Brisbane where I work as a full-time wedding and corporate events photographer (since 2015). I not only love weddings, but I love the creative, technical, logistical (and often physical!) challenges of shooting them.
I am naturally drawn to and love capturing candid moments and people, and creative couples portraits with minimal posing.
CAN I MEET YOU BEFORE BOOKING A WEDDING?
Absolutely, and this is highly recommended if you are based in Brisbane, otherwise we can Facebook Video chat or talk on the phone.
WILL I RECEIVE DIGITAL FILES?
Yes, and at the maximum pixel resolution and JPEG quality, without watermarks. Within 7-14 days you will gain access to your hosted online gallery which stays up for two years, where you and all guests can download the photos conveniently at both social media and high resolution sizes.
30 days after you have received access to the online gallery, all the photos are exported at maximum resolution and JPEG quality to a USB Drive which is then posted to you. This is included in all packages, even my three hour package.
DO YOU SHOOT OUTSIDE BRISBANE?
Travel is included on the wedding day for up to one hours drive from the suburb of Tingalpa. Additional travel time is reasonably priced.
I also shoot destination weddings outside Brisbane, please contact me for a quote that includes the cost of travel.
DO YOU USE SECOND SHOOTERS?
Not normally, but I do offer a second shooter service (an extra photographer) and recommend this for weddings with more than 150 guests, or larger budgets. This allows a second photographer to capture detail shots while I am shooting getting ready photos, or both the bride and groom getting ready at the same time.
HOW LONG DO YOU NEED FOR COUPLES PORTRAITS?
Anywhere from 30 minutes to 90 minutes is the typical time period. Some couples prefer to have a candid first look session instead of couples portraits.
Couples portraits are often taken around the vicinity of the ceremony or reception locations, or somewhere more picturesque like Roma Street Parklands, New Farm Park, Mt Coot-Tha Gardens or Brisbane Botanic Gardens.
You may also be looking for something a bit different, which I am very happy to accommodate.
WHAT GEAR DO YOU USE?
I have two professional Canon 5 series camera bodies, a Canon 5D Mark IV and Canon 5D Mark III as an additional backup camera. I use only Canon L lenses or Sigma Art Series prime lenses for the very best optical quality, focus performance and reliability. I have an extensive range of lighting including speedlites, soft boxes, umbrellas and light modifiers for light control and creative effects as needed.
ARE YOU A NATURAL LIGHT SHOOTER?
I love shooting in natural light and this my preference wherever possible but I have all sorts of lighting that can be used as required (for all stages of the wedding day).
DO YOU SHOOT SAME-SEX WEDDINGS?
How do I know you are available?
Please send me a message via the contact page, and I will reply quickly with availability (the same day up to 9PM at night).
