Photography

Our wedding photography packages include unlimited photos, but to give you a guide we anticipate to handover 500-800 photos depending on the coverage.

Yes, we individually edit every image which you receive through a technical process of cropping, white balance and adjusting exposure.

Our full day wedding photography package includes 8 hours of continuous coverage, which means if we start at 10:00am then the coverage concludes at 6:00pm. For some weddings, this is sufficient time, but if you require more wedding photography coverage you are more than welcome extend your coverage at a rate of $198 per hour.

All files will be available for download onto an unlimited number of devices after our editing has been completed.

Our standard turnaround time is 12 weeks, but generally our couples will receive all their edited photos within 6 weeks.

This means all your images have the correct resolution to be used on social media, without any restriction. However, if you intend to print your photos after the wedding then we recommend upgrading to the ‘High Resolution’ format which will allows prints to any size.

Our standard wedding photography packages includes one of our professional wedding photographers. There is an option to add a second wedding photographer to your package but we find no benefit. Be cautious when other studios include multiple photographers, it is most likely because they are not experienced wedding photographers.

We prefer timeless and elegant photography with the use of natural light where possible. Quality photography will never date and look amazing now and in years to come. If you like the ‘instagram filters’ and extremely edited imagery, then, unfortunately, we are not the studio for you.

Absolutely – We are a very transparent studio and you are more than welcome to meet your photographer before booking.

We don’t make it a contractual obligation to feed our team as we understand weddings are already quite expensive, but if you do require coverage late into the night a meal is super appreciated to keep our team members full of energy for your wedding.

Videography

Our wedding photography package. These cinematic edits are designed to tell you a story of the complete wedding day, from start to finish, to a song selection of your choice which will be approximately 3-5 minutes in length. You can view an extensive range of Highlight Trailer edits at www.vimeo.com/ateiaphotographys include unlimited photos, but to give you a guide we anticipate to handover 500-800 photos depending on the coverage.

These edits are a full version edit of the wedding day. It will begin with a one song edit for the Groom, a one song edit for the Bride, the full ceremony is included with live audio. Please keep in mind, given the nature of some ceremonies our primary camera will be focusing on the person officiating the service. This is followed by a one song edit for the location shoot and then full formalities at the reception, including cutting of the cake, bridal waltz and speeches. For cultural weddings, we also include all the cultural dancing. English dancing is captured in snippets and then our editors carefully craft a one song montage edit to the footage that has been captured. The ‘Full Length’ edit will vary in length but is approximately 60-90 minutes.

We not handover raw footage with any of our packages, as we feel that without any editing it is hard to appreciate all the effort and planning you have put into your wedding day.

Our team will not bring a drone of the wedding day as they are quite loud, disruptive and cannot be used in many places around Melbourne. For this reason, we have created a library of drone footage at most venues around Melbourne which we can incorporate into your edits to give it the same impact as if the drone was there on the wedding day.

Our package includes a primary camera for Bride and Groom preparations and the location shoot, but we use a secondary camera during the ceremony and reception only for backup purposes and not for creative editing.

Absolutely – Our wedding videographers will use a lapel microphone among other audio devices to ensure we capture the best quality audio of the ceremony and reception.

We do not offer wedding videography bookings in isolation, you must also have our wedding photography as part of your package.

Our standard turnaround is 12 weeks after the wedding, assuming we have received the song selections before the wedding.

We are currently transitioning away from DVDs and providing videography on USBs. We anticipate shortly we will be streaming videos to couples in 2020.
