Compared to other photos Wedding Photos are so important. As an example, how many times have you heard that when fleeing a burning house, a couple will save their children, their pets and their wedding photos before other possessions.

At Photo Mode we try to provide more "Bang for your Buck". Both in our offerings and attitude. Sometimes a couple will ask for candid or casual photos instead of formally posing. While we can do this, formal photos are important. If we take a photo and it's not important to you then you don't have to use it. But if you want a photo that is not taken then the opportunity is lost forever. Remember that on her Wedding Day a Bride becomes a Model.

Besides some great wedding photos our purpose is to photograph a complete record of your special day. To cover everything from the bride's/groom's home, the ceremony, gardens, reception and everything in between. To create a complete memory of your wedding.

All our photography is now done on high end Digital Cameras. Compared to film you receive many more photo images. We have no restriction on how many images we photograph dependant on the time available to us. We have back up camera bodies, lenses, flash units and backup our work as we complete each memory card. We also have a Studio with professional lighting if the situation calls for it.

You receive a CD/DVD of all images with basic post-production (editing). You will receive 4 copies of each image. One copy will be high quality digital file (TIFF format) that will allow you to print to Poster size or larger. One copy will be a similar high quality Jpeg. One copy will be a medium size Jpeg suitable for emailing relatives and friends. It is suitable to be printed to A4 size. One copy will be a small size Jpeg suitable for placing on the web/internet - sites as Facebook and MySpace. While you can do any retouching you want on any image we have software which automatically produces all sizes in one operation and this means you don't need to do any "photoshopping" yourself. Photos will usually be available by the time you return from your Honeymoon.

Albums/Photo Books.

We can show you what's available. Albums for Digital Photography are very exciting. These can be considered any time after the Wedding and Honeymoon. There is a special way of designing and ordering these. Photo Books is one of the reasons photographing a Wedding on Digital is so exciting. These books look like Coffee Table books and can be quite exhilarating to look at. An additional advantage of Digital Photo Books is that additional copies for Parents can be producerd at a greatly reduced cost.
