Our Team Profiles
I endeavour to bring a fresh visual approach to wedding photograhy, which is influenced by my experience as an advertising and fashion photographer. I like to shoot in a candid and unobtrusive style, which I feel, gives a natural elegant look. I really enjoy shooting, and I don't like to get in any one's face on the day, which enables me to observe and capture those wonderful moments that a wedding day is made up of, family, friends and lots of love and excitement.
I've been shooting commercially for around 15 years, working all over the world, on jobs as diverse as photojournalism in Israel and big advertising productions throughout Asia.
Frequently Asked Questions
Our packages start from around $2500. We find that our average clients will spend between $4000 - $6000 on their wedding package, and of course we do have clients who will spend much more than that. The key is to balance what elements you'd like in your package with what you are comfortable spending.
Photographs last beyond a lifetime, they will be passed onto future generations and capturing the story of your day with expertise, experience and sensitivity will like be the most enduring decision you'll make about your wedding day.
Do we select the photographs that go into our album?
Yes. We find the best way is if we provide an initial design as a starting point. We design based on our favourite images, and commonly they are yours also. You can then change as much or as little as you wish. Ultimately it is your album, we will provide design advice, but it is entirely up to you as to what images you choose and how involved you would like to be.
How much time do you recommend on location for the portraits between the ceremony and reception?
I prefer the minimum to be around 1hr. The more time we can have then the more variations we can produce. If you have more time allocated, then you can arrange to use greater than one location for more diversity. We feel that this is a time for you to relax with each other for the first time as a married couple, and it is as you relax that the most romantic and fun shots are often captured.
Do you shoot Black & White and Colour?
Yes, Capturing the mood and feel of the day is often achieved through the use of back+white, colour and cross-processed colour imagery. The mixture of these styles is entirely up to you. We capture all the images on the day in colour and then we process the images into Black and white , sepia and cross processed colour.
How many photographers will we have on the day?
On most occasions we have 2 photographers, 1 principal photographer and a second. Brett has worked as a film director and this has led him to integrate the multi camera technique into the studios wedding photography. There are many times throughout the day when we want to cover the action from two angles. A classic example is the Bride walking down the aisle. we want to see the expectant look on her face but I also want to capture the scene from behind as she walks down the aisle to her new life. The two photographers work as a team each concentrating on their own aspect of the job. This allows us to quietly capture the magic moments of your day without undue interference.
Who will be our photographer on the day?
Our team of photographers is lead by Brett Odgers and all have been hand picked from the advertising, commercial and fashion industry. Brett is our principal photographer and is usually the first one available for any bookings. if your have requested Brett and he is unavailable you will be advised immediately. The choice will then be yours. All our team have been highly trained in the style of Brett Odgers Photography. You will always meet the photographer of your wedding prior to the big day, so they will usually meet you either at the engagement portrait or the pre production planning meeting. We all end up feeling like a part of your family after we have shared your wedding day and it is this sensitive intimacy that we foster in each of our photographers.
Does every package include a wedding album?
No, we have a unique way of looking at wedding photography. We separately itemise all inclusions so thay you can create your ideal package. We believe that our studio shouldn't dictate to you what's in your wedding package. This gives you great flexibility & means you can include only what you'd like. This also means you are not tied into having an album immediately, but can order it at a later stage if your budget is limited.

Yes most of our packages include a disk of high rez images
Plus a proof album and a wedding album.
