Private Celebrations

Throughout life we celebrate significant milestones and it is natural we want to capture tangible memories as when we gather the special people around us. When you invite a photographer to capture your event, you don't have to worry about missing out on the key moments, you can kick back and focus on celebrating!

All images from your event will be edited and provided as social media sized jpeg files. You will have complimentary access to a private online gallery for up to 1 year, so you can easily share these special images with family and friends or share links to favourite images from the event on your social media. There are unlimited downloads available throughout the year.

In addition to the base packages, you can upgrade your package at the time of booking to receive all images sized for social media plus a high-resolution version suitable for printing; or you can purchase Printable Packs after the event to download select images in the high-resolution, print-friendly format.
