Where are you based?

I am based in Newcastle, NSW Australia.

I also travel around Australia and overseas to document weddings and elopements.

What is your pricing?

I offer a range of collections for weddings and elopements for my clients which suit any type of celebration.

I have a Pricing Guide which includes a tonne of information about myself, my photography and the collections I offer my clients.

To give you an idea, my clients spend between $3500 and $5000 for their bigger wedding celebrations. For intimate weddings and elopements the price starts from $1500 and varies based on the coverage/time they opt for when they book.

Please get in touch and I can send you my current pricing guide before you book me in.

How do we book you?

Booking is very simple! Simply head to my booking form to get your date locked in – https://www.jackchauvel.com/book/

Your date is secured after I have received a signed digital contract and a booking retainer ($1000).

Your booking will be managed by me via my secure booking website.

Do you travel for weddings?

YES! I love to travel and document weddings and elopements. It is one of my favourite things to do.

I include complimentary travel in all of my bookings for weddings within 2 hours of Newcastle.

I am more than happy to travel within Australia or overseas to document weddings and elopements. I always work out the most cost effective way to travel for every assignment (whether locally or internationally).

I have already been involved with destination weddings and elopements within Australia, Iceland (x2), Italy, Fiji and destination pre-weddings in Hong Kong, Bali, Italy, Scotland and England.

What is a wedding collection?

Wedding collections are pre-packaged options for you to pick from when booking me. The collections are built around the most requested services/options that my clients look to book each year. I created these collections over the past 12 years to accommodate my clients and what means most to them.

My new pricing guide contains all of the information about my wedding collections and I love to share it! I found this was the best way to present my work to my enquiring clients.

How long is your normal wedding photography coverage?

I include a minimum of up to 9 hours of photography in each of my wedding collections. This is with a latest finish of 10pm (I will also stay later than 10pm, if you’ll have me!).

Every wedding is different, and every wedding day follows its own schedule and as such additional hours can be added to your booking if required.

Can we meet in person before the wedding?

Yes of course! Post COVID the trend has been to do most meetings remotely via video chat. I love meeting up with couples (wherever possible) whether it be at an engagement shoot or simply over a coffee/drink in the lead up to the day to get to know each other in person and chat about your wedding plans.

Do you offer wedding albums?

I love my wedding albums and showing them off to anyone who asks. They are a beautiful representation of your wedding celebration in something you can hold, touch and enjoy f or many years to come. They become a family heirloom, a one of a kind book that tells your story.

I personally love the feel of holding images in the print form of a wedding album. I like to keep things simple, so I offer a ‘square’ format lay-flat fine art matte albums.

What wedding album options are available?

I offer (as a base) 10″ x 10″ and 12″ x 12″ sized albums which all compliment each other in the way they tell a story. All of my albums come with 30 spreads (60 pages) as standard which is plenty of spreads to tell your wedding story in. The albums can be upgraded to a total of 40 spreads (80 pages) if you’d like to fit even more in. The albums are printed on a fine-art matte paper with beautiful colour reproduction and presentation.

There are a number of album cover and embossing options that you can choose from. As standard; included in my album pricing is one of the of the linen/book cloth options as well as front cover embossing).

There are also a number of additional album upgrades that you can order/purchase for your album including additional embossing, custom embossed designs, album slip cases and of course additional album spreads for your design.

Please consult my pricing guide for the full information.

I have samples of each album that I offer, and I am more than happy to show you exactly how awesome they are in person. They can be ordered at any time before or after the wedding day.

Since I design in a square format that can be translated from the largest size, to the smallest; it allows me to produce the one design across multiple formats. From this I can also create parent albums (which are a duplicate of a main album) for parents upon request.

All albums include the album design process and a 3 stage process of design and delivery.
