Wedding FAQ

Every wedding is unique and for Phill Jackson it will never be just another job.

After your wedding day, your photographs are one of the few things that remain, so it is important that you choose the right photographer to capture images portraying the essence and emotion of your wedding day.

Phill’s style of wedding photography embraces not only the bride and groom but all the elements that make up your day: your family, friends, the decorations and venue you spent hours choosing, the smiles, the tears, the personalities.

Phill prides himself on capturing stunning images while being as unobtrusive as possible.
After all, the most important thing is you enjoying your day. Phill works quietly and efficiently during the ceremony and reception and will take you away at a time that suits you to get those very special images of just the two of you.

Phill is a highly regarded Noosa wedding photographer and also works throughout the Sunshine Coast, on the Gold Coast and Brisbane.

Apart from his experience and supreme technical skills, Phill stands out as the only photographer on the Sunshine Coast who uses professional, on-site lighting. Any photographer can take beautiful images on a perfect day, but professional lighting ensures results worthy of a society wedding no matter what the weather.

And when you receive your images, you will not be getting a limited selection of images accompanied by an expensive price list. With Phill Jackson Photography, all packages include a disk of high-resolution images for you to use as you choose.

You can also have all your photos uploaded onto a website for family and friends around the world to download at no charge.

Your day, your images.

Q: Why should we choose Phill Jackson Photography?

A: There are few photographers in Noosa who can match Phill Jackson’s experience and portfolio – how many photographers can lay claim to having photographed the Queen? Apart from expertise and experience, Phill’s big point of difference is that he uses professional lighting (similar to what you would see in a top studio) no matter what the location – indoor or outdoor. This ensures that every photograph is beautifully lit and captures every subject at their most photogenic, regardless of the natural light on the day.

Phill also recognises that when it comes to weddings it is your day and you want to enjoy it. He doesn’t intrude and doesn’t clock-watch – if you go a little over time, no problem.

Q: Where can we have our Noosa wedding photos or Sunshine Coast wedding photos taken?

A: Phill can work in any setting, indoor or outdoor. Many couples choose the beach for their wedding photos and Phill can use his local expertise to choose a suitable location based on tide times, how busy various beaches are likely to be and other key factors.

Phill knows Noosa beaches and other Sunshine Coast beaches well and can find the perfect spot depending on the time of day and time of year. And because he works with professional on-site lighting, you will get studio-quality images no matter what location you choose.

Q: Where can we have our Brisbane wedding photos taken?

A: Phill works with a variety of locations, depending on the style and feel you are looking for. For photos by the river, the Nepalese Temple at Southbank offers something a bit different, or the Kangaroo Point cliffs make a beautiful backdrop if you are having your wedding or reception in the city. The City Botanic Gardens and the Brisbane Botanic Gardens at Mt Coot-tha are always popular, or some opt for the Roma Street Parklands.

Many couples choose to have their wedding and reception in the same place, and good options for this include the University of Queensland at St Lucia, Hillstone St Lucia, Boulevard Gardens at Indooroopilly and Gianni’s Portside in Hamilton.

Sirromet winery at Mt Cotton is also a beautiful place for a wedding and lends itself well to photos.

Q: Where can we have our family photos taken?

A: It’s up to you. Phill can bring his equipment to your home or any location you choose. If you’re not sure, talk to Phill about the sort of images you want and he will suggest suitable locations.

Q: What if the weather is bad?

A: Unlike other coast photographers, Phill Jackson works with professional on-site lighting to ensure his subjects are beautifully lit no matter what the circumstances. If you choose an outdoor location and are unlucky enough to get rain, please call Phill to discuss the wet weather plan as it will differ for each wedding.

Q: What format will our photos be in?

A: No matter what package you choose, you will receive a disk of images to use as you choose. Some wedding photographers retain ownership of your images, making you beholden to them for expensive reprints. Phill Jackson has a simple belief: your wedding, your images.

Q: We are not in Queensland, can we still use Phill as our photographer?

A: Phill predominately works in and around the Sunshine Coast and Brisbane but can travel on request. Please send us an email to discuss your requirements.
