Brisbane Wedding Photography – Adrian and Monica – a few frames

Brisbane Wedding Photography – Adrian and Monica – a few frames

 

Rain is romance.  The way these two look at each other is contagious, in Love.

Just a few of my faves from the beautiful rainy day Brisbane country wedding of Adrian and Monica, at the beautiful Brockhurst Farm in Ocean View.

Yes the page boy, with rings in hand, broke out into a dance in the middle of a verse reading, much to the embarrassment of the flower girls!

Monica and Adrian got hitched in Gum boots!

Thanks for having me along for the ride guys!

More to come soon.

Wedding Photography Brisbane – Matthew and Sally – Teasers

Wedding Photography Brisbane – Matthew and Sally – Teasers

 

Sally and Matt were married in the beautiful St Mary’s Anglican Church at Kangaroo Point in Brisbane

These two were so cute, they never stopped kissing and staring into each others eyes!

We then jumped in a stretch limo and headed out to explore the city at it’s best, we definitely had some golden hour moments. The light was stunning.

The Brisbane Botanical Gardens and Kangaroo point are some of the best spots for Wedding Photography in Brisbane.

Thanks for having me along on your afternoon of love and light.

More to come soon guys!

Migrating from Shoot Q to Táve

MIGRATING FROM SHOOT Q TO TAVE

 
I thought I’d share my hints, tips and experience from recently migrating from Shoot Q to Táve client management system to help anyone out who might be thinking about doing the same.  This is not a sponsored post 🙂

Firstly, why did we move?

Well, we were pretty happy with Shoot Q and had been using it for around 3 years.  However, there were a few little things that started to get on our nerves:

  • The inability to control certain automated emails that were sent to clients;
  • I had been waiting for an Android app for Shoot Q for far too long;
  • We found Táve to be more competitively priced than Shoot Q.  In fact, by paying for a Táve subscription for 2 years in advance, it saved me 50% of my previous client management system fees (which were being paid monthly).  For a small business, that is a big plus.

So, how did we start?

  • Firstly, we took full advantage of the free trial period for Táve.   This made the migrating from Shoot Q to Táve process feel less daunting (knowing we weren’t paying for the time it took to set up).   Here is a link to a 60 day free trial (instead of the 30 day free trial).
  • We also decided to only migrate our active clients.  That is, clients who were still to have their photography session, and also clients who already had their photography session but were still waiting on albums, images etc.  Any completely closed jobs were backed up out of Shoot Q so we still had all the info on file if needed;
  • We then set up all of our product information and other settings like email templates (super handy), signatures, contracts, and workflow etc.  There were a few hiccups when we set up our products and pricing, but Táve support is second to none.  They were super quick and eager to help.

Next, it was simply a matter of manually entering client information into Táve (sadly there is no other way!).  I took a bit of time with this as I also logged all email correspondence as well.  It was a little bit like running a marathon.  Painful while you’re doing it, but afterwards you feel a great sense of accomplishment and are glad you did it.  (note.  I have never run a marathon, I only imagine that this is how you’d feel).

What (else) do we love about Táve?

  • The look and feel of Shoot Q is different to Táve, so it took me around a month to really get the hang of Táve, and now that I do, I love it. Very intuitive and makes managing Leads and Booked Jobs super slick and easy;
  • We have also integrated our Contact Form with Táve so that Leads appear automatically.  Oh and the Email Activity Tracker is awesome!   You are notified when your email has been delivered, read, and links have been clicked.  It means you can be guaranteed the potential client has received your correspondence.
  • We love the Tave User Group on Facebook, and the fact that the developers are keen to take on board improvements and make it happen.

One final hint.  When all clients were migrated over (and we had cut and pasted their signed digital contracts into their portals as well), we emailed each client and advised them of the portal change.  We told the clients that all information should be the same in the new portal, however we gave them 7 days before we officially shut down Shoot Q to do their own checking.  This was a valuable step, as one of our clients did notice a discrepancy in their payment schedule which we fixed pronto.

If you are thinking of migrating from Shoot Q to Táve, I would recommend you push through the short term pain, for long term gain.  We are glad we did.

To help the migration process, use the following link to get a 60 day free trial of Táve (instead of the standard 30 day free trial).  https://tave.com/join/deus-photography

Feel free to ping me any questions about migrating from Shoot Q to Táve, otherwise, best of luck!  PS. It’s pronounced “Tar-Vey“.

Brisbane Wedding Photography – UQ Wedding Photos

Brisbane Wedding Photography – Grant and Monica – Ukrainian Catholic Church, University of Queensland and Hillstone St. Lucia

Just a few of my favourites from an awesome day of Brisbane wedding photography on the weekend. Grant and Monica, two love birds, soul mates and all round cool cats, allowed me the privilege of being a part of their special day.

I always love a bride who wears Karen Willis Holmes and her classic dress went perfectly with the gorgeous UQ Great Court as a backdrop for some bridal party photos.

Enjoy your sneak peek and I look forward to sharing your full wedding day story very shortly.

Brisbane Wedding Photography – Luke and Christina – a few teasers

Just a couple of teasers from my very cool Brisbane wedding last weekend.

Luke and Christina were married in the beautiful All Hallows Chapel and the partying moved down to the river into the very elegant ballroom at the Stamford Plaza, where I heard the funniest best man speech yet….but more of all that soon.

Thanks for a wonderful day guys, hope you like these few for now.
