NEWCASTLE & HUNTER VALLEY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHERS
We are James & Ash Goff and we own and run James Goff Photography. We’re a small, boutique, Newcastle based photography business that specialises in weddings. We photograph people who are in love… and we love it! There’s something really exciting about capturing the moments of a wedding day as it unfolds.
Our main aim is to capture natural, real moments and emotions as they unfold (just a quick look at our work will show you what we mean). We just want you to be you! Enjoy your day; be in love… we’ll make sure it all gets captured on the camera.
We photograph weddings in Newcastle, the Hunter Valley, and the Central Coast but we also love to travel for weddings too, so please contact us even if your wedding isn’t local.
We offer a range of packages; digital, with prints and with beautiful printed albums.
Wedding coverage is always the same. All day. From your getting ready photos till 10pm in the evening (after 10pm we charge an hourly rate). To us, it just makes sense to shoot all day if you want to tell the story of someone’s wedding day. We want you to be able to look through your wedding photos and be taken back through your wedding day exactly as it unfolded on the day itself. If you want to see what I mean, check out our portfolio and take yourself through some of the weddings we’ve photographed. Click on the video to see what one of our albums looks like.
Wedding packages start at $2,990
Our couples/engagement sessions include a 1.5hr shoot at a location of your choice (or if you want me to decide, that’s fine too… I know lots of cool locations!).
Couples/engagement sessions are $650.

A: Our wedding packages and prices are really simple. Our prices start at $2,990. Just send us a quick message via the contact form and we’ll email you a PDF with a full rundown of our packages and prices. Our engagement/couples shoots are $650.
Q: How many hours of coverage will we get with your wedding packages?
A: All day! We’ll photography you getting ready before the wedding, right through till 10pm at your reception. We firmly believe that the best way to tell the story of your wedding day is to be there for every part.

A: Firstly, we’ll arrange to meet up with you to chat through your wedding details. After we meet up, we require a 40% deposit to secure your wedding date in our calendar.
Q: What copyrights do we have regarding our wedding images?
A: While we retain copyright to all the images, we grant all our couples a personal, limited license that allows you to make your own prints, digital copies and to post copyright versions of your wedding photos on social media… basically everything you’d possibly want to do with your photos.
Q: We’ve noticed that you shoot a lot of candid photos at your weddings… do you take any formal photos of family and friends?
A: Of course! We try to shoot candid photos as much as possible because this yields the most natural results but we will also take a number of organised/staged photos of you with your family and friends.
Q: Do you travel out of town to shoot weddings?
A: Absolutely! We love photographing weddings in different places. At no extra cost to you, we travel to all areas of Newcastle, Central Coast, and The Hunter Valley. Beyond those areas, we charge a small fee to cover simple accommodation and travel expenses.
Q: Do you do engagement photo shoots?
A: We certainly do, and we love doing them! Engagement shoots are included for free with some of our wedding packages… but if you’re just looking for a couples session, they’re $650.
Q: How many images will we get after our wedding?
A: We average approx. 500 images, generally depending on the length of your wedding day.
Q: When will our digital images and printed album be ready?
A: We will have all digital images available in less than 4 weeks (usually around 2 weeks), then your printed album will be ready approx. 2 weeks after you’ve selected the photos to be included in the album.
