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.

What do we receive if we book you?

You get me! When you book Jack Chauvel, you get Jack Chauvel to capture your wedding day. No randomly assigned photographer.. just my goofy and fun self who brings a great energy and enthusiasm to your wedding celebration.

I capture all the good bits, and then pick the best story and edit all of the photos 1 by 1 until I have a beautifully curated set of images for you. I then deliver these edited photographs in high resolution and web resolution via an Online Gallery as well as a keepsakes box with a USB.

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.
