Where are you based?

I'm based on the Mornington Peninsula, Melbourne. I'm available for weddings & elopements throughout Aus & internationally

 What's your style?

I'll aim to capture your day as it flows with a little bit of direction to make the most of the light & create some truly epic moments.
I'll see what unfolds naturally first & chase those 'little' moments that unfold between you & your guests in a natural & thoughtful way.
Most of my direction is all about light, putting you in a space that makes both of you look incredible.

I have a calming nature & will make sure that you enjoy the whole experience 

Do you work with videographers?

Absolutely, I can recommend some amazing people I have worked with previously that have rad style & bring good vibes on the day

Do you shoot with a second shooter?

If you have a tight timeline for the day or you're planning a larger 120+ wedding we can add a second shooter for an additional fee 

Do you shoot LGBTQ+ weddings/elopements?

Heck Yes! I'd love to be there to celebrate with you & capture your day
 

Do you offer albums?

Imagine going to all this effort to get a photographer to capture everything, only for the photographs to end up living on a hard drive as digital dust. I truly believe in printing our memories & the nostalgia that comes with sitting down together & turning the pages of your very own album.
Each album is individually designed with fine art matte thick papers, hand made in Aus to last. They are seriously stunning! Sing out if you'd like some more info 

Do you shoot on digital or film/analog cameras?

Both! My standard photography packages are all shot on digital cameras & we can add film photographs captured on old school 35mm & medium format analog cameras dating back to the 1950's for the creative couples that love those classic film photos too. There's something really special about film photography that has a really nostalgic look & feel & suits perfectly to capture the timelines nature of a wedding.

I also offer a couples session entirely shot on film for a pure hit of nostalgic goodness 

Do you travel for weddings & elopements?

Yep, I love a good adventure just send through your dates & locations & we can create a quote for you. I shoot weddings & elopements all over Vic but If your location is interstate just ask for a travel quote, it's often not as expensive as you think 

Do you need us to provide a meal for you?

If I'm working 6hrs+ I'd love a meal if possible 

What is an 'unplugged' ceremony?

This just means asking your guests to put their phones/ipads away during the ceremony. It means your guests will be present & enjoying the moment with you, it also means I'm able to capture all the big moments of you & your guests without stacks of phones obstructing everyones view
Trust me this can make a massive difference to the vibe & atmosphere of your ceremony

 How do we book you?

Just fill out a few questions on my contacts page or shoot me an email at info@dustandsalt.com.au with your date, location & as much info as you like & i'll send through some package options for you.
To secure your date there is a $1500 deposit & signed agreement, done online nice & easy
