Where are you based and do you travel for weddings?
We are based in Sydney NSW however we love to travel near and far.

How many weddings do you shoot a year?
We are committed to providing the utmost care and attention to each couple we work with. Therefore, we choose to take on a limited number of wedding commissions each year. This allows us to dedicate our time and creative energy to ensure that every couple receives our very best. By maintaining this approach, we stay true to ourselves as artists, creating unique and personalized images that capture the essence of each couple’s love story.

How do we book you?
To secure your wedding date, simply send us an enquiry through the contact page. We will check the availability and get back to you promptly. A non-refundable booking fee of $1500 is required, along with a signed contract to confirm the reservation. The remaining payment is due 30 days prior to the event. Please note due to high booking demand that your date will only be secured once the deposit and signed contract is received.

Do all your wedding packages include a second photographer?
Yes, all our wedding packages include a second photographer. This ensures we can capture a wider variety of images, provide additional perspectives, and offer better coverage of your special day. Having a second photographer is also valuable for managing time efficiently, being in multiple places at once, and providing peace of mind even in unexpected situations.

Do you photograph elopements and small intimate weddings? 
We understand the desire to create a unique and personal experience by forgoing a traditional big wedding. That’s why we have curated a special package specifically tailored to these intimate celebrations. Whether it’s just the two of you or with your closest loved ones, we are here to document your perfect day. Get in touch with us, and together we can discuss and plan the details to create a memorable and meaningful experience that reflects your love story.


What do we receive when booking you?
When you book us, you can expect a personalised and tailored experience from the start. We prioritise prompt replies, reliable communication, and professional service throughout your entire wedding journey. Our goal is to make you feel at ease, prepared, and excited for your special day.
After your wedding day, you will receive all the final images that we have carefully curated and edited. These images will be conveniently accessible through your own personal online gallery. From your gallery, you will have the option to download and share the images with your loved ones. Additionally, you can easily order a variety of prints and products directly from our connected print shop, making it simple to bring your favourite moments to life in tangible forms.
We are dedicated to providing exceptional service and ensuring your memories are easily accessible and beautifully preserved.

Don’t let your beautiful images remain hidden on screens alone. Embrace the timeless appeal of printed products and Fine Art Albums, ensuring that your memories are preserved and enjoyed for a lifetime.

The importance of a wedding album.
A wedding album is a timeless keepsake that holds immense value and significance. It becomes a cherished heirloom that you can share with your family for generations to come. While digital copies are convenient, nothing compares to the experience of physically holding and feeling an album. The tactile nature of an album brings your images to life in a way that digital copies simply cannot replicate. It allows you to truly immerse yourself in the memories and emotions captured within the pages.
By investing in a wedding album, you are not only preserving your own memories but also contributing to your family’s history. Future generations will have a tangible record of how their family came to be over time. It becomes a bridge that connects past, present, and future, allowing them to experience and appreciate the love and joy shared on your special day.
Don’t underestimate the power and significance of a beautifully crafted wedding album. It is a lasting testament to your love story, a treasure that will be treasured and passed down through the years, enriching your family’s legacy.



What are your shooting preferences in regards to lighting?
As a natural light photographer, I have a preference for working with the available natural light whenever possible. I find that natural light helps preserve the authentic mood and atmosphere of the day and the surrounding environments. However, I also understand the importance of proper lighting and work closely with your venue and stylist to ensure that all lighting aspects are well planned.
While I prefer natural light, I am also skilled in using flash when needed, particularly for capturing energetic moments on the dance floor. My aim is to create beautiful, natural-looking images that truly reflect the essence of your wedding day.

What is your shooting style?
We understand the value of capturing those moments that may have gone unnoticed in the busyness of the day—the finer details, the subtle glances, and the raw emotions that make up your wedding day.
Our goal is to transport you back to those cherished moments through honest and authentic photographs. We want you to remember your day exactly as it was. There is nothing more beautiful than genuine smiles, expressions, and connections, and we will be there to capture them for you.
When it comes to couples’ portraits, we strike a balance between giving enough direction to ensure your comfort while still allowing the images to remain natural and relaxed. We want you to feel at ease and be your true selves, resulting in photographs that reflect your authentic connection and love.
With our candid and natural approach, we aim to provide you with a collection of photographs that truly tell the story of your wedding day, capturing the genuine emotions and moments that make it unique and unforgettable.

Do you have a favourite time of day to shoot portraits?
Lighting is a crucial element in wedding photography, and we love shooting portraits during the “golden hour.” This is the hour before sunset when the light is at its most stunning and creates a magical ambiance. Embracing the golden hour for your portraits will result in images that exude warmth, radiance, and an ethereal quality. It’s a time when the natural light beautifully enhances the atmosphere and adds a touch of magic to your photographs.

What are your tips for different seasons?
Summer Weddings
Schedule your ceremony for later in the afternoon to take advantage of softer light. Midday sun can be harsh and uncomfortable, so aim for a time when the sunlight is less intense. Consider providing shade or parasols for your guests to keep them comfortable during outdoor ceremonies and portraits.
Winter Weddings
Take advantage of the beautiful soft light and ethereal sunsets that winter brings. Plan for an earlier ceremony to make the most of the available daylight for your portrait session. Embrace the cosy atmosphere of winter with warm lighting, candles, and seasonal decorations.
General Seasonal Considerations
Keep in mind that daylight hours vary throughout the year, so plan your timeline accordingly. Be prepared for changes in weather conditions and have backup plans for outdoor ceremonies or portraits. Take advantage of the unique features each season offers, such as blooming flowers in spring or vibrant foliage in autumn. By considering these seasonal factors and adapting your plans accordingly, you can enhance the beauty and comfort of your wedding day.
