Frequently Asked Questions

Please contact me if your question isn’t answered below! I’m always updating this list!

Formerly known as Gemma Boys Photography, I rebranded in January 2019! Founded in 2012 and operated by myself, Gemma. I cover all aspects of my blossoming little business from my website, advertising, marketing, customer liaison, photographing, editing, packaging and everything in between! I do however have a few lovely 2nd photographers who assist me when my couples request an additional photographer!

Yes, I am! I currently have all 3 required vaccinations and will continue to update these if required. In the event that I’m unable to photograph per our agreement, I will do my best to source a vaccinated photographer in my place. I’m part of a wonderful local community that has come together to make sure that we are all supported in these unprecedented times!

Absolutely! I’m so glad that Australia now recognizes that marriage is between 2 people! Love is love <3

I bought my first camera in 2012 and since have had the pleasure of photographing countless families, pets and over 170 weddings!

I love using natural and ambient lighting to capture your memories exactly as they were in that moment in time. My editing style is very vibrant, bright and crisp. My photography style is very laid back, relaxed, I take on a more documentary, lifestyle approach and try to blend in as much as possible to create minimum interruption and maximum candid and natural moments!

I’ve been photographing since 2012, and have completed a Bachelors Degree in Photography at Curtin University. I continue to educate myself via all of the wonderful resources online! I have been assistant photographer, and have been the substitute photographer as well when another photographer has been unwell.

Engagement photos are a great opportunity to have some fun before your wedding day, meet your photographer and the photos we make are perfect for save the dates and invitations!

To find my current prices for our wedding photography, please visit my packages page here. For weddings a $400.00 non-refundable retainer is required to confirm date/time, with the balance payable no later than 30 days prior to the wedding date. For other sessions the payment is required in full upon booking, which includes the non-refundable retainer applicable to that session type.

I’ve had weddings book with as little as 1 weeks notice, or 3 years notice. Every situation is different and sometimes you may need a photographer last minute – however I recommend that as soon as you are planning your date to reach out to your favorite photographer to see if they have it available! The date, venue, photographer and celebrant are always the first to be booked out so don’t leave it too late!

The most popular wedding months are March, October and November so if you’re looking for a Saturday in these months, the sooner you lock in your favorites, the better.

Perfect! No dates are held without the retainer and a signed contract so if you would love for us to be your photographer, reach out as soon as possible!
Please submit your information here and we’ll be in touch!

Only once and it absolutely broke my heart. I, unfortunately, needed surgery. However, I notified my customer as soon as I knew, issued a full refund and they had time to find a suitable replacement!

No, I currently only work with still photography. However, I can recommend some wonderful videographers who I love to work alongside!

At this point in time, these are not services I am able to offer.

The only costs that may not be included in package prices are traveling outside of a determined radius, and purchase/postage for additional products which will be discussed prior to any invoicing or payments.

All portrait sessions have their own number of included images per session – for example, family sessions include 15 images in the package price. A proof gallery is provided for you to choose your 15 included images.  If you want additional images past this included number they can be purchased. Please visit the relevant session page or enquire to find out the additional prices.

You absolutely do receive edited digital images with your session fee, and they are high resolution and print-ready. No sneaky small print I promise!

I take all possible precautions to store backup copies of your images, however I can’t guarantee that once you have been provided with your own copies that I will be able to provide you with additional copies. Please make sure that you make extra copies of your files, on different medias (CD, USB, HDD) and store at least one in a different location/property for the best security!

The initial sneak peek photographs (when applicable) will have watermarks as they are in progress edits and are not the final version. Your final finished images will be completely watermark free!

You receive JPEG files. They are high resolution, in RGB and are print ready! I do not provide raw or unedited files as these are the blueprint to my art.

No I don’t, everyone is just as excited to get their images back and those ahead in my processing queue have been waiting even longer! Images are edited on a first “photographed” first served basis!

Within 48 hours of your wedding you’ll receive approximately 10 sneak peek images!

I know it seems like photographers take FOREVER to get your photos back to you, especially when you’re excited! The main reason for delays is that often we have multiple weddings/sessions in our processing queue so any new photographs go to the back of the line. It isn’t that your images are taking that long individually, instead it’s the build up of other memories being created that adds up! The total turn around time will vary depending on a few factors. What your photography is; wedding, family, headshot etc and when it is!

For weddings my turnaround time is up to 8 weeks, for other sessions up to 3 weeks. These times are extended by up to 2 weeks over the Christmas and New Year period however you will be advised in advance if your photos fall across this date! I’ve never missed a deadline and depending on my workload I always endeavour to return your photos as soon as possible!

I do! A second photographer is an optional add-on to any of my packages as long as they are available for your date. Images captured by my second are edited by me to streamline with the style of Fox and Luna Photography. Please note that having a 2nd photographer does not mean there will be twice as many photographs, it just means there will be additional angles, and the ability to be in 2 places at once (eg grooms preparation and brides preparation).

When it comes to weddings I prefer to capture them in a more candid manner, I know the important things to look out for so prefer to work from experience rather than a list! If there are any items or people of special interest let me know and I’ll make sure to get extra photos of them! The only list I require is a list of names of your guests for your family and guest portraits. I’ll discuss this with you during the booking process and have a template I can provide you to make this super easy!

Absolutely! While I photograph a lot of weddings in the Swan Valley and Perth area I’m absolutely open to travel down South and around WA for weddings! I have family down in Collie and Bunbury so any excuse to go visit them on the way is great! There are some travel costs included as well as any necessary accommodation but these will be discussed up front during the booking process.

This is entirely personal preference! We offer packages from 3 hours through to 12 hours and everything in between. You can choose which moments you want captured! If you’re not sure what package you want then I recommend locking in the smallest package (3 hours coverage) and then you can upgrade from there!

Absolutely! $5,000,000 in public liability – I’m more than happy to provide a certificate of this if required for your venue or coordinator.

For each hour of wedding photography, you receive a minimum of 50 edited images!

Absolutely. All of my wedding couples receive my help with building their perfect timeline. I utilise all of my experience in wedding photography to make sure that we have plenty of time and are not rushed.

A little bit of rain on your wedding day is good luck! I keep clear umbrellas in my car just in case we need to grab them for the wedding portraits but unless it’s a downpour there’s nothing to worry about! Just make sure you have a wet weather plan for your ceremony.

I would love to meet up for a coffee to chat about your wedding plans! Or even a video or phone call if that’s easier. This is the perfect opportunity to make sure you love my vibe and that I’m the right photographer for you.

Wedding photography is an investment in your memories!

While it is a lot of money upfront there’s more to it than just the hours spent taking photographs on the day, there is a lot of time put in before, during, and after your wedding. I’m always ensuring that my equipment is serviced and that I have backups in the unlikely event of equipment failure, that I have the appropriate insurance, and that I’m qualified and always learning to be the best photographer I can be!

Then regarding your wedding – there’s all the time spent emailing, meeting, timeline planning, phone calls before the wedding, a venue walkthrough, the time on your wedding day, backing up your images, sneak peeks, culling, editing, exporting, and then uploading into your online gallery and onto your keepsake USB which is then taken to the post office! If you purchased a wedding album too then many hours go into designing this.

This can easily add up to 60-80 hours for one wedding! You’re paying for my time and experience to make your wedding day photography perfect.

The past few years have been unprecedented in the wedding community thanks to COVID-19. A lot of customers and vendors have unfortunately found themselves out of pocket due to the constant lockdowns and restrictions.

If you find that your wedding date is affected by a lockdown or covid related restriction then I will work with you to find a new date for rescheduling your special day! These terms are detailed in your wedding contract so make sure you read through it before you sign.

Yes! Prices vary depending on what you would like so please reach out here to discuss!

Almost everyone is camera shy! That’s one of the reasons I recommend doing an engagement shoot so that we can get a feel for each other and you can have a practice of being in front of the camera before your big day! It’s also why I recommend doing your wedding portraits away from your guests so that they’re not all staring & taking photographs. If you’re really shy then we can do some photographs with your wedding party and then just the 3 of us go off somewhere for some peace & quiet for some nice fun photos.

For the most part I’m using my big lens so I’m hanging in the background taking candid photographs – I’m a ninja, you barely notice me!
