Perla Photography | FAQ - Most asked questions during our meetings

Frequent Questions


Where are you based?

Perla Photography’s studio is located in Main Street, Mornington. All our meetings take place in our studio but we travel anywhere for wedding photography. Most of our weddings are based on the Mornington Peninsula, Yarra Valley, Dandenongs, Daylesford and all around VIC. We are also available for interstate/overseas weddings.

How many weddings have you photographed?

More than 400!!! SO MUCH LOVE!

If you could give one piece of advice what would that be?

So hard! We have so many tips and tricks to share (that is why all our couples receive pages and pages of articles we wrote to make your Day as stress-free as possible!) However, if we could give only one advice, it would be: BE YOU! Just be yourself! Plan your wedding not following any rule and on the Day just BE YOU: the goofy you, the happy you, the emotional you, the clumsy you... and we will do the rest!

How many hours of coverage do you offer?

Our Collections offer 7 to 10 hours of coverage. This time usually includes both the bride and the groom getting ready, ceremony, family formals, bridal/couple photo-shoot and part of the reception (cutting of the cake/first dance/speeches). However, we offer our couples the possibility of adding more coverage hour. The Day will be booked entirely for you, so you can add as much time as needed. For this reason, we also help our couples design their timeline to ensure that all the most important moments are covered.

How would you describe your wedding photography style?

Our photography style is bright, romantic but most of all real, just like our couples! 🙂 Our aim is to capture your day as it really is, a natural reflection of who you are as a couple and the Love that is between you combined with lots of scenery shots, amazing sunsets and the nature that surrounds you.We believe that our couples want to savour every single moment from their Day and not just the portrait session. That is why we LOVE candid photos of not only the couple but all the guests laughing, interacting and just having FUN!And let’s be honest, in 10 years’ time you don’t want to look back and see darkness (sorry moody photographers!) So, if you love natural light, soft and light editing, happy shots of all your loved ones and lanscape/scenery images, than Perla Photography is the right photographer for you!

How is your photography approach during our wedding day?

We love capturing those natural moments that unfold during your Day. We truly believe that all the raw emotions, less perfect moments are the ones that will make your wedding day. Those are the moments that will make you laugh and cry one day while you are flicking through the pages of your album. However, we also want to give you those amazing images, the ones with the perfect light, with the perfect posing.. the ones you will print and hang on your walls where you are looking like movie stars 😉 .. For this reason, we offer more guidance during the couple and bridal photo-shoot.

When will I receive my wedding images?

You will receive all the images at the highest resolution (printing quality) beautifully reworked and free of watermark between 3 and 6 weeks (depending on the wedding season).

Do you offer wedding albums?

Yes! There's nothing we love more than seeing our images printed in a gorgeous album. Click here ( https://perlaphotography.com.au/articles/wedding-albums ) to view more or head to our Instagram page and you will find so many videos under the "Albums" Highlight

Do you have insurance?

Yes, we do.

Do you travel interstate/overseas?

Combining travel and capturing people in love is our absolute dream. If you are getting married overseas, shoot us an email! We would love to be a part of your day!

Is a meeting required?

Absolutely not. Some couples love to come to the studio and meet us and have a touch and feel experience with our wedding art albums. However, we have many couples that book us from interstate and overseas. In such cases, emails, phone calls and Skype meetings are all possible!

Do you support same sex marriages?

Of course we do!

How do I book?

Two steps are required. We will send you Terms and Conditions that need to be signed and returned to us and an Invoice. Upon paying 20% of the amount your date is locked in! The remainder is due one month prior to your wedding date.
