joseph koprek photography » local and destination wedding photographer based in Melbourne Australia.


How long have you been in the industry?

I have now been running my business for around 14 years. Prior to this, I shot weddings in a freelance capacity for two years, and before this, I worked for a wedding / portrait studio for around 8 years. You could say I have some experience!

How many images do you take at a wedding?

There are no limits to the amount of images taken. Of course, every wedding is different with regards to the coverage, and also the amount of guests and family present. My aim is to tell the story of your day, as best as I possibly can.

Do we get access to the high resolution images?

Yes, the high resolution images are delivered with my standard coverages. These are a mixture of black and white, as well as colour images. For further details, contact me via the contact form, and I’ll be happy to forward you my price list with further details.

Do you offer engagement / pre-wedding shoots?
Yes. This enables us to:

– Get to know each other better.
– Create images that can be used at the wedding (ie; guest signing book, invitations etc…)
– Help you relax in front of the camera.
Do you travel for weddings?
Yes! I have photographed many destination weddings, both interstate, and internationally. Some recent weddings I have covered were in the USA, Bali, Germany, Austria and Malaysia just to name a few. *Travel fees will apply.
Can we provide you with a list of photographs to take?
Of course. If there are any specific photos you need (family from overseas etc), I’m more than happy for you to provide me a list.
Do you work with a second photographer?

I work with an assistant, who’s primary job is to carry my gear, and hand me equipment when needed. This means a fluid day, without me having to worry about where I left the camera bag! In saying this, my assistant does shoot when needed, such as during the ceremony etc.

How would you describe your style?

My style varies throughout the day. I’m a firm believer in capturing everything from the candid (real) moments, through to the formal photographs of family – and everything in between. This will depend on the style of your wedding, and how the day itself unfolds.

Do you Photoshop your images?
Yes. All the images are given a basic ‘Lightroom’ edit (colour / black and white). All images used for albums and enlargements are then further enhanced and retouched for the utmost quality.
How much time should we allow for locations?
I recommend 1 – 3 hours, depending on time.

Do you have public liability insurance?
Yes. We have 10 million of public liability insurance.

How many weddings have you photographed?

Over the past 14 years I have photographed at least 500 weddings. I also shot weddings for a studio in which I worked for prior to this time as well – which would equate to a total of around 900 weddings!

Do you offer wedding albums?

Yes, in fact most of my couples choose to have an album created, as these are a bespoke product which are an important keepsake of your big day. Once the cake is eaten, and the dress is worn, the album is the the one thing that lives on (for generations to come).

Do you have a contract we need to fill out in order to book?

Yes. Once couples have decided that I’m the one, I send links to the booking form, as well as quotes etc.

Do you offer discounts?

Due to the volume of assignments, I find that there is no need to discount. I always supply my clients with the best images, service and products. I take great pride in the personal experience, the results and the service / products that I consistently reproduce for each and every one of my clients. This is the main reason that I receive many referrals from past clients.

We have cheaper quotes – why is this the case?

It’s more than likely they will have much less experience (there are many new, and part time photographers out there). This may also mean cheaper products (made overseas), as well as the fact that that they may not have a studio, which could mean having meetings in a busy, non-private environment.
