south australian wedding photographer
Thank you so much for considering me to be apart of your special day. Having the opportunity of playing an incredibly important part of a couple's wedding is always an honour.
Hi! My name is Jacqui & I’ve been a professional photographer for 6 years now. I’ve photographed many weddings during this timeframe and it’s been pretty damn good!

Your wedding is one of the most memorable days of your life so finding the right photographer to capture this is crucial! And let’s face it, you will be spending the most amount of time with them on your wedding day so they need to be funny too ;)
I get it. Every couple is different with different priorities as to where they chose to spend their finances. However, I think photography is an investment that lasts forever. Yes, I may be a tad biased when I say this but, seriously, think about it. These photos kept from your special day will be shared with your children, your grandchildren, their children, & so on.
Let’s be honest, you have put so much time & effort into planning months sometimes years leading up to this special day. So, when the day finally approaches, it goes by very quickly! It’s important to have beautiful photos to look back on.

Frequently Asked Questions
How long have you been shooting weddings?
I have been photographing weddings for almost 7 years. I have photographed hundreds of weddings independently and alongside other photographers across the state (and Queensland!)
Where are you based?
I am based in the Adelaide Hills, South Australia. However, I am not limited to the Hills as most weddings I photograph are around the Adelaide, Barossa Valley & Fleurieu Peninsula regions.
Will it just be you on the day?
Most of my package options include 1 professional photographer. I do offer options for a second shooter & recommend another photographer for weddings larger than 130+ guests.
What happens if you’re sick on the day?
Stress not! In the extremely unlikely occasion I am unable to attend your wedding day, I will organise a suitable replacement to photograph your day. As usual, I will edit your photographs myself so your images will still reflect my style.
What sort of equipment do you use? Do you have back-up gear?
I have 2 full-frame cameras I carry with me every wedding: my trusty Canon 1DX mark ii and Canon 5D Mark iii. You will see me swapping between different lenses throughout the day including my telephoto, wide, macro & prime lenses. I always make sure to carry plenty of spare batteries & memory cards with me on the day.
Do you back-up the photos?
Yes! For precautionary measures, I shoot the entire wedding on 2 memory cards & at the end of the day, I back-up the whole wedding 3 times over.
Can I have the RAW files?
To clarify, I do not offer RAW files. I understand it may sound unusual that after a long day of shooting you only receive 500-800 photos. Please understand that, for me, the editing process usually takes longer than the actual time spent shooting the wedding. I sort through thousands of photos selecting the absolute best from the big day. As a professional photographer, it is my job the remove photos that include blinking, talking, brushing hair from faces, etc. This is exactly why you will hear bursts of photos on the day.
Think of it like this, you wouldn’t ask your dressmaker to share the off-cuts from your wedding dress. They have worked incredibly hard to produce the final result - your wedding dress!
How long do I need to wait until I get my photos?
Please understand the post-production process is not something that I rush. This does take time, particularly during peak season. I do not out-source any editing; everything is done by me. The wait time for the final digital collection will usually vary between 4 to 8 weeks after the wedding day.
Do you travel? Will there be additional costs for travel?
Yes, I do travel! Custom packages are available, however, I do ask for a small travel fee for locations that exceed an hour drive from home.
For long-distance travel, please keep in mind I will be arriving the day before the wedding as I will need to stay close by. It can be exhausting being on your feet after a long day of shooting so I try to reduce travel time as much as possible. For safety reasons, I will need to stay close by the night before & the night of your wedding day.
Do you have Insurance?
Do you offer video?
I don’t, I’m sorry! I am a one-woman team so I only offer photography services at this time. The perks of being a wedding photographer is meeting & working alongside some amazing videographers. Flick me an email & I will be more than happy to send across a list of referrals!
Will you help us with the wedding timeline?
Absolutely! Prior to the big day, I compile a shooting timeline from start to finish. This includes locations, addresses, ceremony & reception start times, emergency contacts, etc.
Keep in mind, every wedding schedule is different depending on the type of photos you were after, day-light savings & travel time between locations. It is important that we meet up prior to the wedding day to discuss the timeline & to iron out the details.
How do I book you? Do you require a deposit?
It’s very simple! Fill out the form below with your wedding details & I will send through confirmation of my availability & wedding packages.
A non-refundable deposit is required upon booking & a wedding agreement will be emailed to you. Once this has been signed & the deposit received, this will secure your wedding date.
Payment can be made via Bank Transfer.
Once we book you, what happens next?
Fantastic! Once booked, I always recommend we meet up a few weeks before the wedding to chat more about your big day in detail. Whether we do this over coffee, in the comfort of your home, video call or at the venue. We will chat about the wedding schedule, the kind of photos you are after & anything else that needs to be covered.
