Jessamy Doyle

Wedding at private residence in Bearii Victoria, Mr + Mrs Doyle (2016)

I was blown away by the photographs we received from our wedding day. The moment I saw the photos for the first time it brought back every one of those stomach knots I felt on the day, the excitement of seeing my groom at the end of the isle and sheer happiness of being pronounced husband and wife. They really blew both me and Dave away.

Dear Monika, Firstly, we can’t describe how incredibly happy we are that we chose you as our wedding photographer. You were able to capture our day in the most magical way,  your energy was so calming and you are so passionate about your work.  You captured the love, the laughter, the joy and all the emotions of the day with your amazing gift. We were completely blown away when we received our photo’s, the attention to detail was second to none, not only were our photo’s amazing, your professionalism prior, during and after the wedding has been outstanding. We both feel so lucky with how the day went, we had an absolute ball and for you to capture it in such a beautiful way is simply priceless. Thankyou again for all your time and effort, your love for what you do shines through in your work. Love Mr & Mrs Miller x x

Frequently Asked Questions

Can we meet you before we book your services?

Absolutely! I love any excuse for a good coffee (or wine) and think it is a great way for us to meet and discuss your wedding plans and ideas.

I am not comfortable getting my photo taken. Can you shoot a more candid/natural style?

Candid and natural IS my style, when I launched my photography services (over 5 years ago now) it was to bring a fresh perspective of photography. Your wedding is about celebrating your love, it is not a photo shoot. During your ceremony and reception you probably won’t even notice me! When we take some bridal party photos in between, I always hear people say “That was so easy & quick”. I will never place you in an awkward pose or make you feel uncomfortable, I want to capture the real connection and love between you and I have very easy and natural ways to bring this out (no matter how much you hate cameras!).

How do you edit the photos?

I like my images to feel natural and real, which is why I won’t over edit them or place filters to make them look different to what it actually looked and felt like on the day. If you happen to have a coldsore or pimple on the day, I will happily help you out with that one! However, altering beyond that will incur additional fees.

When will we receive our photos after the wedding?

You will receive some sneak peek images, to share with friends and family within a week of your wedding. I aim to have the final package to you within 6 weeks of your wedding date.

What do we receive after the wedding?

You will receive all of your images in colour and black and white, in high-resolution digital format (which means you can print these, at any size), lovingly packaged up wooden USB and signature MB Captured wall banner with one of your wedding images. You will also receive a  low-resolution secure online gallery to share with friends and family. Plus I keep your digital images on file and backed-up should you ever lose your images.

What is the process to book your services?

Use the contact form so we can check if your date is free and then book in a coffee meet-up! Once you have chosen a package (or I have tailored a package for you), a 20% deposit is payable and the balance is not due until closer to your wedding date.

Can you hold the date for us, we’re not quite ready to book?

Unfortunately no, it is first in best dressed.  I do my best to provide first preference to couples who have been in discussions with me but the date cannot be locked in for you until you have recieved your contract and paid deposit. This is the most honest and fair method I can offer couples. 

Do you scout locations before the wedding?

Each wedding is unique, so I will familiarise myself with the surrounds and note some opportunities. However, I don’t like to make a scheduled plan for your wedding day. After all, it is more fun to wing it a little bit and have some fun, thats when the best photos are created – from the candid moments. Your wedding is a celebration with your nearest and dearest, so I don’t want to make it feel like a boring and structured photoshoot, I aim to have you back and partying as soon as possible.

We would like an album of the photos. Can you help with that?

Absolutely! I have a few options available. Please contact me to discuss.
