CHRIS JACK WEDDING FAQ
WhO IS CHRIS JACK?
I am 43 years old, married with two daughters and a very understanding wife, and live in Wynnum, Brisbane where I work as a full-time 7 days a week wedding and corporate events photographer.
I am naturally drawn to (and love) capturing candid moments and people, and creative couples portraits.
CAN I MEET YOU BEFORE BOOKING A WEDDING?
Absolutely, and this is recommended if you are based in Brisbane, otherwise we can talk on the phone.
WILL I RECEIVE DIGITAL FILES?
Yes, and at the maximum pixel resolution and JPEG quality, without watermarks. Within 21 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.
IS A USB DRIVE INCLUDED?
A Sandisk Extreme or equivalent 16GB USB Drive is included for all wedding photography and is posted to you once any finals edits are made to photos. I do not use decorative USB drives, as they are not as reliable as standard USB drives from major brands.
DO YOU SHOOT OUTSIDE BRISBANE?
Travel is included on the wedding day for up to one hour from the suburb of Tingalpa. Additional travel time is reasonably priced (please request a quote).
I also shoot destination weddings outside Brisbane and even Australia, please contact me for a quote that includes the cost of travel. Some clients have found that it is cheaper to hire a photographer from Brisbane than more expensive cities like Sydney or Melbourne, even with the additional travel costs.
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.
It also allows for multiple camera angles during key moments, and ensures more moments are captured throughout the day.
HOW LONG DO YOU NEED FOR COUPLES PORTRAITS?
Anywhere from 45 minutes to 90 minutes is the usual 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. I am very open to suggestions for couples portrait locations.
Couples portraits are included in my Contemporary wedding photography packages, and not included at all with Documentary style.
WHAT GEAR DO YOU USE?
I have two professional grade 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 and reliability.
I have about 6 lenses to choose from and an extensive range of lighting including speedlites, soft boxes, umbrellas and light modifiers for light control.
ARE YOU A NATURAL LIGHT SHOOTER?
I love shooting in natural light and this is my preference where possible, but often flash is required after sunset to bring out the colour in skies and sunsets, and to illuminate wedding receptions and night events.
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).
