Common questions

Can you take photos in a dark Church?

Yes, we have experience dealing with various types of Churches which have had various amounts of light available. We have the professional equipment to manage nearly any type of situation.

Have you done multi child Ceremonies?

Yes, we have had experience doing multiple child Christenings or Baptisms where there are three, four or even five groups during one session. With our experience, equipment and guidance we will help make it a simple thing to manage to ensure we get amazing photos.

How many photos do you take?

We take hundreds of photos per hour to capture all the key moments during your event. Our photography is then crafted to tell a story from beginning to end. From there the best photos are chosen & selections are then made.

What methods of payment do you take?

Firstly, we require a Deposit to secure your booking and date (no other bookings for that date are taken) then the balance is due prior to your event. Payment is via Direct Deposit but we can also accept PayPal or Credit Cards that will incur a small fee.

How do I get my photos?

We don’t use free services like DropBox or similar. We use a personalised online gallery system that enables you to mark your favourites, share them with friends, order prints and more. You have the option of ordering them on a USB key.

Why can't I get my photos faster?

We have a number of jobs scheduled into our photography workflow at any given time that are processed based on the booking date. We can bring your job forward if required & there are options for 7 day or 24 hour turnaround.

How much time should you allow during the day?

Just consider that a 5 minute drive is actually a 15-20 minute transition that includes packing up, driving, traffic, parking, setting up etc. Things can be done quickly but with large events if things are rushed it means people aren’t relaxed and it shows in the photos. Allow yourself plenty of time for delays, children not behaving as expected, people running late etc.

What photography equipment is used?

We use professional photography equipment from Canon and other brands that includes digital SLR cameras, premium lenses and lighting equipment.

Can I change my booking date?

You can change your booking date, but your deposit will be forfeited and would need to be paid again for the new date. This is because we would have rejected other bookings for your date.

Why do I need to pay for them on USB?

Firstly we need to purchase the USB keys, then spend time copying the files, packing, posting and managing the administration. Therefore we offer the personal online gallery as the first option which is included.

Can I give my photos to my supppliers?

No. All photos provided are for personal use only and not to be used by 3rd parties for commercial use or promotion. We have an option for them to purchase the images that includes a commercial use license.

How big are the files?

Typically the hi-resolution digital photos provided are 3MB+ in size per image which are suitable for prints, enlargements, canvas and photobooks.

A few of our recent photography service reviews

“They were incredible. They managed to make all of our guests and us (including my one-year old) feel comfortable. They unobtrusively went about documenting the highlights and special moments of the day and nailed my brief. A perfect mix of professional and friendly – THIS is how you run a business.”

“Paul is just a fantastic guy and a great photographer. Highly recommend his services for any special occasion you might have”

“It was a pleasure having Paul capture irreplaceable moments of our son’s Christening. He was punctual, early in fact, creative in his photography style offering fresh ideas throughout the day and prompt in sending proofs within days. He exceeded all our expectations and went above and beyond with his service making a somewhat stressful day flow with ease and without incident. We wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Paul and his team to our family and friends and won’t think twice in hiring his services once again in the future.”

“I’ve recently had the absolute pleasure of allowing Paul at “La Lente Photography” do a photo shoot of our little 5 month old girl. The images he took are nothing short of amazing and we are truly grateful for the way he captured her great little personality. At the same time, I had him take some very unique photos of my car that was for sale which changed the whole way it presents on Carsales… Thanks so much!”

All the photos he took were not only gorgeous but they really did capture the day and all the candid special moments. I would highly recommend Paul for any event and will certainly be using him again. A true professional. Thank you Paul – Jamie and I are extremely grateful :)”

“Simone and I are beyond happy with the way you captured all the moments of our wedding from the typical family shots to the quiet candid moments. We were particularly impressed and grateful the way you included our 7 year old in all parts of the process and getting some great photos of him. You guys both made us all feel comfortable and we thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience with you. We would highly recommend Paul and are so pleased with how you captured our special day.”

“Paul is truly one very talented photographer. He captures the moment even with you unaware it is happening. I love his style of photography – natural, outside the box and unique. Great to work with, makes you feel comfortable and at ease infront of the camera. I would highly recommend Paul to anyone after a photoprapher to take truly memorable photos (just scroll through his FB page and you’ll see what I mean)”
