Hang on a second, didn’t you used to be called The Little Details?
Why yes I did. I started photographing weddings in 2011 under the pseudonym The Little Details Weddings. This year, I decided it was time for a change, and brought all of my photography under one name, my name: Heather Liddell. In terms of my style of shooting, my packages etc, nothing has changed. I just have a brand spanking new website, and a fun new logo.
Where are you based?
I hail from the big smoke, Auckland, but recently moved down to the beautiful Hawkes Bay.
Do you travel for weddings?
Yes, yes a thousand times yes. As you may have read on my about page, traveling is something I love, and do very well. I’m often flitting back and forth from Auckland to Napier for clients and am more than happy to go much further for you and your wedding.
How about destination weddings?
Absolutely. So far I’ve been lucky to shoot in New York, Bali and all over NZ. So please don’t hesitate to get in touch even if you aren’t local. I have special rates for destination weddings and would love to come and experience your culture and capture your day.
How much do you charge for weddings?
My Collections vary depending on how much coverage you require for your day. So best idea is to flick me an email or fill out the contact from, and I can send you through all the information about what I can do for you.
How many photographs do you generally deliver from a wedding day and are they supplied in high resolution?
That depends on what kind of coverage you choose, but it is usually anything from 600-1000, and you will receive high and low resolution images via USB or DVD.
How long does it take to receive the photographs?
Usually between 4 and 8 weeks depending on whether you get married in peak wedding season or not.
Do you photograph on your own or with a second shooter?
I mostly photograph alone, which means that I very active on the day. My experience has shown that this approach can comfortably cover all aspects of your day. However, sometimes four eyes are better than two, especially if timing is tight on your day or your locations quite far between. If that is the case I know many talented photographers who I call on and team up with to make your day go that little bit smoother.
How to we book you in?
Send me an email or fill out the contact form over here, try to provide as many details about your day as possible- especially your date and location. From there we can meet up for a coffee or a evening beverage if you’re local, or plan a Skype date to have a chat and make sure that we are a perfect fit. If you’re happy with everything I’ll send through an agreement form for you to fill out and return along with information for a 25% deposit to lock in your date. Then voila! You have your very own personal wedding photographer.
Do you have recommendations for other vendors we can use on the day?
I’ve had the pleasure of working with so many talented florists, hair and makeup artists, celebrants, stylists, invite designers… the list goes on. So feel free to get in touch if you’re unsure of who to go with and would like a recommendation.
What time of the day provides the best light for our photography?
There’s a time of day aptly dubbed the ‘golden hour’, this is the hour after sunrise or before sunset in which the light is golden and softer compared to when the Sun is at its highest in the sky. This can be a challenge in summer time, as that golden hour happens roughly around 8-8.30pm. But don’t despair, anytime later in the afternoon is going to provide great light, just try to not plan for a photoshoot around noon-3pm in high summer, as this is when the sun is at its harshest. And if you’re already at the point of planning your reception timeline, try to allow a small gap of half an hour around sunset to steal away from your guests for to bask in the glow. Trust me, you wont regret it.
