FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

GENERAL

COMMERCIAL

Do you do commercial/business work?
Yes! I do all sorts such as photographing workspaces, headshots, creating content for your website, creating videos for client meetings and for social media. I’d love to be involved in your next project - please get in touch!

EVENTS

Do you shoot events?
Yes I shoot many events ranging from conferences, school balls, community events, birthday parties, engagement parties, church events and anniversaries. If you’ve got an event happening let me know!

NEWBORN / FAMILY

Do you do family shoots?
Yes I am available for family and newborns sessions.

WEDDINGS

Do you do destination weddings?
Yes! I am available everywhere and absolutely love travel. I have shot weddings all over the North Island, NZ and even one in the United Kingdom. I would love to get some more stamps on my passport so if you’re having a destination wedding please get in touch!

How can we book you?
I ask for a 30% deposit to confirm your booking and also that you read over and sign my contract. This can all be done online so you don’t have to worry about printing or mailing anything!

When is full payment due?
One month before your wedding.

Do you shoot both photo and video at the same time?
No, I just shoot either photo or video as I don’t want to miss capturing any amazing moments!

I want to book but I am worried if things go over time on the day it won’t be enough, can I add more hours on the day?
Yes if things are running late on the day I can usually stay longer and just charge per hour if time exceeds the package you chose.

Do you charge for travel?
For weddings in the Auckland area I don’t charge for my travel but for weddings a little further out, such as Waiuku, Matakana etc. I charge 77c per km to cover petrol and my time. For Waiheke weddings I ask that you cover the ferry ticket, parking and either a rental car, taxi, or that you organise someone to pick me up from the ferry.

Do you do destination weddings?
Yes and I absolutely love these! I ask that you cover petrol/flights and accomodation - if I have friends/family in the area (such as Tauranga) I will try to stay with them if possible to keep costs down for you!

Do you do engagement sessions?
Yes! You can check them out here: https://sarahflorence.com/engagement
Let me know if you’d like to book one in! Prices starting at $350 for a 1 hour shoot within Auckland.

Do you ask for a meal?
If I am around when you are eating then yes please that would be great! It makes things much easier for me when I don’t have to organise food especially if your wedding is far away from supermarkets. It also means I can quickly get energised and back into capturing those memories for you. If this is a problem please don’t hesitate to contact me!

Do you do your own editing?
Yep!

What camera’s do you use?
I use Canon 5dMkIII’s and 5DMkIV’s for both photo and video.



PHOTO

Is a second shooter necessary?
No, I can totally shoot your wedding on my own! But if you are short on time or getting ready quite far away from each other then it can be handy to have someone else help me out. I can organise getting someone in to help out.

How many photos are included in the packages?
It depends on the package you choose, obviously if I’m there for a longer amount of time there will be more photos. I really try to cull it down so you don’t have to sort through a million photos that look exactly the same. For 6 hours I give at least 400 photos, for 9 hours 550 photos and 11 hours at least 750 photos. These numbers do vary which each wedding as I don’t cap the number of photos I give, so there’s a good chance you’ll get more than that but you can be sure you won’t have less!



VIDEO

Can I pick my own songs?
Yes of course! I love to use music that you love because it makes the feel of the video that much more special. I just need to make sure that all music can be licensed to me to use. You can find awesome tracks on websites like Artlist, which I have a subscription to.

Can I have my vows put over the video?
Yes! This is included in every package, I normally just put them over the full wedding video but if you are really wanting them I can put it over the sneak peek too.

Can you film the speeches?
Yes! If time permits I can film all the speeches and will give you a separate speeches video file so you can watch those amazing memories over and over.

Can I get a drone?
If flying in the area is acceptable I can totally organise getting one for your wedding! Drone shots make everything look so epic!! Please just keep in mind drones can not fly in certain areas such as near high rise buildings or in flight paths e.g. at Abbeville Estate. Please contact me for a quote.

Is a second shooter necessary?
No, I can totally shoot your wedding on my own! But if you are short on time or getting ready quite far away from each other then it can be handy to have someone else help me out. I can organise getting someone in to help out.
