Poppy & Sage Photography Second Shooting

"Hello! I am <xyz> from <abc>. I have 50K following. I am getting married. Would you do the wedding photography for free and I'll pay you in exposure?"

"Hi! I am wondering if you would like to collaborate for <birthday party, vow renewal, store opening, newborn shoot>. It will be a couple of hours. Are you keen?"

Some photographers are offended by requests like this. They feel that they put a lot of time and effort into the business that they have built (very often from the ground up) and that the opportunity is not worth the risk. We are not actually opposed to these requests. If we can reach a mutually beneficial agreement, we will.

Some terms and conditions are as follows:

For weddings, we require

  • Testimonials from five previous collaborators (with associated referral data stemming from collaboration)
  • Engagement statistics for the past three years from an independently audited and verified authority
  • Contact details for your talent/business manager
  • A legal contract stipulating a holding bond requiring a minimum of five weddings booked within six months by clients (directly related to social media exposure); in the case that this is not followed through, we will require payment in full with interest

For events, we require

  • Testimonials from five previous collaborators (with associated referral data stemming from collaboration)
  • Creative license (control over location, theme, styling, vendors involved, and so on - the equivalent of a styled shoot)

Feel free to email us at or call us on +61424263106.

"We had the absolute pleasure of having Em and Pete from Poppy & Sage as our wedding photographers. There are not enough words to describe how lovely Em and Pete are. They are immediately warm and friendly and put everyone at ease, which is what you want on your big day. They were so good with our children who range in age from 1 - 14 years old. Even our moody teenager was smiling! Our guests are still talking about how brilliant our photographers were. Em and Pete demonstrate a high level of professionalism and organisation while maintaining a relaxed approach. We found them to be very accommodating and flexible, allowing us to make changes when we needed. Em and Pete were able to capture many beautiful moments and we have received so many compliments on our photos. Thank you, Em and Pete - you were perfection and we couldn't have picked better photographers!" ~Michael & Tara, valued wedding clients
