MEET SARAH 

There’s a magic to photography. For the images to capture not just an image but also the imagination, there needs to be trust and rapport between you and the photographer. To help you make sure that Bye Bye Blackbird Photography is the right teller of your tale, below are the answers to some frequently asked questions.

Can we meet before our scheduled session/wedding/event?

Absolutely. A pre-shoot meeting is ideal for everyone involved to better understand your needs, wants and ideas. If time or distance is a challenge, the miracles of technology such as FaceTime and Skype can be a good ‘Plan B’.

Do you have a signature style of photography?

I really connect with earthy, organic tones and aesthetics. I’m great with natural, honest photography that is authentic to the story being told.

How much experience do you have with weddings/groups/events?

Lots! I’ve shot more than 100 weddings in the past five years with each year getting busier and busier. I’ve shot indoors, outdoors, in the rain, in the scorching sun, in a hurry, in cars, in spite of and because of. I’ve improvised props and stands from just about anything you can think of and I’ve got some great tricks to help everyone feel at ease and enjoy the process.

Do you have an additional photographers available for weddings and large events?

I’m part of a network of wildly talented photographers who can help out when needed.

Do you work from a shot list at weddings?

I can but prefer the flexibility of looking for and capturing real moments in real time… really well. If having a list to refer to makes you feel more comfortable, we can work together to ensure you get all that you want and more.

Can I access samples of your albums and prints?

Of course. My studio is located in Alstonville in the Northern Rivers region and available by appointment for you to visit and view. I can also meet you at a mutually convenient location if that works better.

Is there a limit to the number of images received in the final gallery?

It will depend on the package you opt for. For weddings, there is no limit though I usually work to 50-100 images per hour. Images are uploaded to your personal online gallery which you can share with your friends and family, and order prints from directly. Wedding images are also supplied on a USB.

How much is your deposit?

Again, it will depend on your package. For weddings, a $500 retainer is required at the time of booking with the balance due two weeks prior to the date. Installments are also welcome.

Do you include engagement sessions with your wedding packages?

Yes. Engagement sessions are complimentary for all half day and full day wedding packages for New South Wales North Coast and South East Queensland locations. Locations further afield can be accommodated but may attract additional costs.

What locations do you cover?

I can travel Australia wide provided costs are covered. My home bases are the Byron
Hinterland of New South Wales and Deloraine, Tasmania and I frequently travel between the two. From these locations I can range throughout the Northern Rivers region, South East Queensland, New England and across Tasmania.

Can I create my own custom package?

For sure. The packages I have on offer as standard are essentially my ‘greatest hits’
collection but I can easily tailor to your budget and preferences.
