CHRIS JACK WEDDING FAQ

What is your style

I am naturally drawn to candid moments and people. Throughout the day, I prefer to pose minimally with as little disruption as possible to couples and guests.

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 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.

WHY ARE YOU SUCH GOOD VALUE?

As a full-time photographer I shoot corporate events on weekdays, so I can offer more affordable wedding photography on Saturdays and during the week when not shooting other events.

CAN I MEET YOU BEFOREHAND?

I would love to, and recommend this if you are near Brisbane. There is no obligation to book me, and I can address any questions or concerns you may have.

DO YOU SHOOT OUTSIDE BRISBANE?

Most of the weddings I shoot are in Brisbane but travel is included on the wedding day from Sunshine Coast to Byron Bay. I also shoot destination weddings outside Brisbane, please contact me for a quote. In most cases this involves additional costs for two nights accommodation and economy travel, but may still be more affordable than hiring a local photographer.

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 outside the box, 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.

ARE YOU A NATURAL LIGHT SHOOTER?

I love shooting in natural light and this my preference wherever possible because it is more natural and takes less setup time, but I have all sorts of lighting that can be used as required (for all stages of the wedding day, from getting ready to the reception).

DO YOU SHOOT SAME-SEX WEDDINGS?

Absolutely!

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).
