Quality is the core of our business. In every interaction with our clients and at every stage of our workflow we strive to deliver the best quality service, imagery and products. The end result is authentic photographs of your day that are meaningful as well as beautiful to look at.
We first discover who you are and what your wedding is about. During your consult we draft a runsheet based on your plans and offer timings optimised for awesome photos.
A month before your wedding we review these plans again.
To capture your day we combine our solid expertise behind a camera and cutting edge gear with what we have discovered about you and your day.
The most intensive part of our process! We review, select and refine 900-1,000 images to ensure they look gorgeous. This is where we invest most of our time.
After 8 weeks, you can view, share and download via your private cloud gallery. Print enlargements can be ordered directly from the gallery. Your 50 megapixel JPG image files are provided on USB for safe keeping. If you’ve opted for the box of 4×6″ art quality prints, this is available to collect.
Our work begins before we even touch a camera
The best way to predict the future is to create it.
Getting to know you
Getting to know your day
When you hire a photographer, the difference between comprehensive wedding coverage and missed moments comes down to communication. You don’t want to be meeting your photographer for the first time on your wedding day.
We are committed to providing a personal experience, so we sit down face to face over a beer or hot chocolate and spend some time with you. We get to know our couples, find who is important, what is unique or significant to you and your families. This is why we won’t ever book a wedding without meeting the couple first – we need to make it personal.
The more you get to know us, the more comfortable you’ll feel in front of the camera. This means you’re more relaxed, results in you being yourself, having more fun and getting loads of natural, candid photos.
Let us simplify your paperwork. We can identify most planning and timing issues early on and build a wedding day timeline that avoids them, all in your initial consultation. We offer approaches, location ideas and guidance aimed to improve the photos and your wedding experience.
We are big believers in being comprehensive and don’t skimp on time. You can’t squeeze your entire wedding coverage into a 6-hour window and expect great results – unlike others we don’t impose hourly maximums on coverage time. We have one night-time cut-off of 9:30pm (extensions available) but our start time and total coverage time is flexible to suit your plans without limit.
A month before the wedding we have a second meeting to iron out any kinks in our first runsheet and to get stuck into understanding the details of you final plans. This is where you also go through your family shot list and highlight your photo requests. This meeting is face-to-face to ensure nothing gets lost in translation (emails are just no substitute) and we are all on the same page come your wedding day.
From the big picture
We step back and get our bearings, before we dive in. So do our photos. We capture the surrounding backdrop of your wedding, reminding you why you first fell in love with that spot.
…to the smallest detail
We are expert at macro photos of rings, jewellery and flat-lays. We have an eagle eye for the little things you have been collecting for your wedding day and our photos ensure you will have a photographic record that can be shared.
We thrive on a challenge, and offer solutions to the biggest wedding woes
Beautifully lit portraits
Our photos are mostly light, bright and glowing. We are experts at manipulating natural light. All your portraits are perfectly lit, bright and vibrant. No dark shadowed faces or green hues in our portraits.
Mindful of your guests
We care about your guests. During your ceremony and reception we are photo ninjas; unseen & unheard. We are unobtrusive yet comprehensive. We won’t plonk a tripod in the aisle or hover between you and your guests during the ceremony.
We have our eyes peeled for those special one-off moments that can happen in an instant. We know who the important family members are and when to focus on them.
Organised formal photos
Forget chaos at family photo time, we spreadsheet it. We will be ready to tick off every combination you have thought of, so you can stay composed and no aunts will miss a shot.
We rock in the rain
Pelting with rain? We can still make you look good and we always have you covered. Seriously we keep wedding umbrellas in our car in case it rains. Also our wet weather guarantee means should it be bucketing down at the time of our location shoot, we will offer you a complimentary 2hr shoot on another day of your choosing.
Not afraid of the dark
Shadowy church? Dark reception? Grey day? We are pretty nifty when it comes to flash photography. We have a separate lighting kit with a range of continuous, off camera flashes and light sticks.
Our work continues long after the confetti settles
After your wedding the hard work begins.
Safe & secure
Our workflow is is precisely planned right from the first meeting through to the delivery of your prints and files. We are obsessive with backup & storage. Your images are backed-up in triplicate in 3 separate locations after the wedding to guard against data loss. During the entire process your personal information is secure both onsite and in the cloud. Your wedding images will never go missing – even if our studio burns down or our computers get stolen.
Wrinkles, pimples, creased dresses – we can fix that! Working with 50 megapixel images we have a lot to play with, we retouch and edit every single photo to perfection, reducing blemishes, cleaning messy backgrounds and smoothing harsh shadows on faces. For every hour of photography at your wedding, at least five more are inveted in postproduction. So while you are soaking up the sun on your honeymoon, we’ll be at our desks making sure every shot looks its best.
Let’s get physical
High resolution files
You will receive your JPG files, up to 50 megapixels, on USB. These are print ready-files with no watermarks or limitations.
For the photo geeks, we can also include DNG/RAW files to a higher capacity USB for an additional $50.
Your photos are all uploaded at full resolution, neatly organised and beautifully presented so you can proudly share them with loved ones and friends. Just share the link and password to save the hassle of emailing individual files to distant relatives.
Print enlargements can be ordered from within the gallery, and are fulfilled from our local lab partner.

Social integration & guestbook
Want 4×6 inch (postcard size) prints of each of your wedding images (900 – 1,000 prints)? We hope so – this is our specialty!
Gorgeous images deserve great quality prints, which is why we’ve searched Australia for the best quality lab we could find. It’s hard to snuggle up with digital files but easy to cozy up with prints. Pass them around the kitchen table, or cover your walls with them. Your choice of traditional Lustre finish or the more hipster Art Paper alternative, both are tack sharp and provide highly accurate colour reproduction.
Your prints are delivered in an elegant pine keepsake box, that we have personally sanded to a smooth finish, lacquered and polished with lavender beeswax (smells like… well, lavender! Yum!). Prints are immaculately presented and there is even a side compartment for your USB to live in. Your names and the wedding date are laser engraved on the lid, so you never forget your anniversary date.
You don’t have to add one to your package, but you’ll be missing out!
We wanted an understated and elegant photo book and searched the world for the perfect coffee-table album. Japan, with its history of book binding, origami and fine paper technology, is where we found these slim albums. They feature silky pages that lie completely flat, allowing huge panoramic shots to jump off the page.
