Q: How long have you been a photographer?
A: I have been a photographer from a young age, but only taken it more seriously since around 10 years ago, transitioning from semi-professional to professional. I now cover various aspects like; weddings, portraits, product and commercial photography, including commissioned work.
Q: What is your photography style?
A: Our photography style is timeless, and natural. Our philosophy is that your images don’t have to be perfectly posed –what we focus on is capturing the moment as we see it, in hopes that it will bring back a memories. One thing we love about working with people is really getting to know them... your personalities and your motivations - and figuring out how to tell that story in the images that you’ll keep forever.
Q: Do you travel outside of the Central Coast?
A: Andrew Wetzel Photography is based on the NSW Central Coast, however will travel nationally as well as internationally to photograph your wedding.
Q: When should we hire your services?
A: We advise clients to book early to avoid disappointment, so return to us as soon as you have confirmed the date and secured the wedding venue. Note that holidays and special dates are very popular so they tend to get booked very early.
Q: How long should we wait until we can see our photos?
A: around 4 to 5 weeks.
Q: Is it necessary to do an engagement session?
A: We highly recommend doing an engagement session although it’s not absolutely necessary. But we'd say the time we spent doing the pictures together acts as a rehearsal for your wedding day. You’ll not only get amazing pictures after the shoot but we’ll also get to work with each other so the wedding day will go as smooth as it can be!
Q: How long will our engagement session be?
A: It can be anywhere from 1-3 hours. Anything less than 1 hour is way too short and we found 2 hours is just about right. With this timeframe you’ll also get to go multiple locations and change an outfit or two.
Q: How much posing instruction do you give during your engagement session?
A: Our goal is to capture as much candid pictures as possible (the moments shot), however, there will be times I’ll pose you two to get the shot you are looking for. Don’t worry, We’ll keep constant communications with you two and make sure you both look and especially feel great
Q: We're not sure where to go for our session, can you give us some ideas?
A: For sure! We have a list of places we can recommend to you.
Q: What do you recommend to wear?
A: I am not a fashion expert, but I recommend wearing solid colour clothing. Stay away from heavy stripes or patterns and any holiday colour combinations. In other words, just treat it like you both are going on a date!
