We decided on the large wall prints which look great in our home and a beautiful family album which we will cherish. Read more

Are there any special offers you would like to offer to Oneflare customers?
A complimentary consultation is offered to all wedding and portrait photography enquiries. This is an obligation-free opportunity to meet up and chat about what you are looking for with regards to your photography, view sample albums and prints and discuss any part of the service I provide.
What are the typical things that you need to know before you can provide a quote to a customer?
A few things that will help me provide the best service to you are: • with weddings, it comes down to coverage time, so estimate how long you will need the photographer and then add a couple more hours as things always take longer than you think. • what sort of products you want (photos for frames, canvas prints, photobooks or digital copies) • for portraits, it's the same with how long you'd like for your session and what you'd like to receive after the shoot • Is the location in Sydney or further afield?
What questions should a customer ask to hire the right service professional?
There are many 'photographers' out there, so when you are entrusting your family's precious moments to one of them, you should look at few aspects of their practice. Some things to consider are: • Is the photographer qualified, that is, are they professionally trained in photographic techniques and in the business of photography? • Is their pricelist easy to understand and not open to misinterpretation? • Do they have professional affiliations, for example AIPP (Australian Institute of Professional Photography)? • Do they have an office or some location where they can show you actual printed images (as images viewed on computer monitors vary greatly to a printed image) where quality and detail are critical. • Ask them about recommendations or ideas for your particular photographic shoot. If they cannot provide satisfactory answers, then their photography is not going to be to your satisfaction either. • Ask them about the whole process when booking with them. A professional photographer will make you feel at ease about the pricing and what it includes, what happens after you've booked in your session, customer information sheets to help you prepare for the session, post-shoot information and how to select images.
Is there a particular aspect of your trade or industry that you specialise in?

How can a customer save money before you start the work? Please give 3 tips
Three things to consider to save you money when choosing your photographer are: 1. 'You get what you pay for' is so true when it comes to the level of experience of a photographer. If they are cheap, they will be relatively inexperienced and that can cost you more than money in the end. When it comes to your memories and once-in-a-lifetime events like a wedding, go with the work that you'd be happy with, not the cheapest. 2. If you are shopping for a photographer who is going to offer the lowest price possible, they are competing on price and not quality, so there is no comparison. 3. Visit their website and then arrange to have an in-person consultation to see their samples and work in print. This is difference in knowing you are dealing with a professional photographer who prides themselves on their work and can demonstrate to you in 'reality', what you will receive.
