FAQ

Where are you located?


We are located in Spring Hill, a suburb that’s on the fringe of Brisbane’s CBD. We are easy to find and there is plenty of free on-site parking.


When are you open?


Our studio is open Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm, with evening appointments available until 6:30pm on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. The studio is closed on weekends so that we can focus completely on the weddings we are photographing. Book early. Evening appointments are popular and generally book out two weeks in advance.


Do you travel outside of Brisbane?


Yes. We are based in Brisbane because we like it here. However, we will travel to anywhere in the world to take your wedding photos. There are no travel fees for weddings in South East Queensland, including the Sunshine Coast, Gold Coast and hinterland regions. Travel fees to other areas simply cover costs, so you will find us very reasonable.


Will I meet my photographer before the day?


Absolutely! To get the touching images that you see on this website, we believe it is important for the photographer and the people we are photographing to have ‘connected’. You need to like the person photographing you. After all they will be with you all day on one of the most special days in your life. You will meet your photographer before you book us, and then you will have complete access to them whenever you need in the lead up to, and after your big day. While we have a team of people here to support you, you will still receive personal service from your chosen photographer. We couldn’t imagine it being any other way.


What will my photographer be like on the day?


You will hardly notice we are there. We will discretely move around capturing images – sometimes you’ll notice us at work, other times you won’t. It will be a great pleasure to meet your family and friends. We will make them feel comfortable having their photo taken and treat them with courtesy and respect. We will deal with any situation that arises with professionalism and calm. With our experience, we will know what to do to keep you smiling all day long.

We will politely and good humouredly take control when we need to, and we will blend into the crowd when the focus should be on you. Our greatest pleasure is showing you photos that you didn’t even know we took – the little moments you felt but didn’t see.


What if the weather is bad?


Some of the most amazing images have come from a stormy day with the bridal party huddled under an umbrella as the rain falls around them. Don’t worry. This is where our experience really pays off. Our aim is to maximise the opportunities that present themselves. Every wedding is unique and yours will have many amazing moments worth capturing, whatever the weather! However, should you be planning an outdoor ceremony, please advise your photographer of any ‘wet weather plan’ prior to your big day.

How long will you stay?


Every wedding is different. We have photographed everything from short civil ceremonies through to three-day extravaganzas. Studio Impressions gives you the flexibility to choose the coverage that’s right for you. We will be there for as long as you want us to be there, you won’t pay for time that you don’t need. You won’t have to be worried about what we are doing all night. If you are running a little late we won’t put down our camera and leave. Rest assured we will be there to capture those special moments. The decision on how long we stay is yours.


Do you do a pre-wedding shoot?


Pre-wedding shoots are a casual, relaxed and fun way to get to know your photographer and become comfortable with having your photo taken. It is also a great way to celebrate your engagement.

Comprehensive half-day and full-day pre-wedding shoots are available, all designed to suit your personality or your wedding theme. Simply contact the studio for more information.


What is in your packages?


Contact Us and we’ll send you all the details. We also recommend calling or coming in to meet with us. Package inclusions can be confusing especially if you are comparing across photographers. Sometimes what sounds like the same thing, isn’t. We would love to explain to you exactly what each thing in our packages is, so there is no confusion, and also, because you might like to have something different. We can do that too.


I’m ready to book you for my wedding. How do I do that?


Simply call or email Studio Impressions (info@studioimpressions.com.au) to advise us you would like to book. A 20% deposit and completed Booking Agreement will guarantee your chosen photographer for your wedding date. It really is that simple.


How far ahead do I need to book?


Some wedding dates are very popular and can book out up to two years in advance. Others are still available at last minute. The great thing is that we have three award winning photographers on our team, so the chance that your date is still free has tripled! Contact us with your date and we will check availability.
