Common questions

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.

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

“My husband and I are so happy we found Paul. He and his partner were so warm and friendly they helped us to enjoy the day even more. We thought that we’d be lucky to get a few good photographs with our two young children with us but we love them all. Great people and great photographs. We hope to get more the next time we are in town. Thanks so much!”

“Loved our experience with Paul and Lyn! We were after some nice professional shots of our 1 year old daughter and couldn’t be happier with the results. Our little one felt very comfortable especially with Lyn helping out with some behind the scenes animation 🙂 Thanks again for the amazing photos and we’ll definitely be using your services again!”

“Our photographer Paul was absolutely amazing!! He photographed our engagement party at Orso Bayside Reception. He made all of our family and friends feel so comfortable in front of the camera. We loved his candid style of shooting which ensured he captured all of our special moments. The preview gallery of all our photos was spectacular and we fell in love with all of them. I highly recommend La Lente to anyone and we will be sure to reach out to him again for any of our special events.”

“Paul was absolutely amazing and professional. Extremely accommodating, creative and and made us (and all our wedding guests) feel at ease at our wedding. 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 :)”

“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.”

“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.”
