"Our Goal is to create timeless, unforgettable images that show your individuality, your spirit and energy.

There is so much to think about when planning your wedding. The perfect dress, handpicked flowers, charming venue, delicious food… But once the fun and laughter is over and you’re back from your exotic honeymoon you are only left with two things - memories and photographs. This is why we believe your photos are one of the most significant features of your wedding day. We feel it's important to be on the same wavelength as our couples. If you are interested in booking us, we would love to have you along for a cup of coffee and a chat about your plans.

Alternatively, if you are little further away, we can arrange a Skype call and create custom made packages for weddings across the nation, or around the world. Availability is limited as we are only taking on a small number of weddings for the year ahead.

Our 8 hours Yellow Brick Road package already starts from $2690, but we can also accommodate smaller weddings and as always, best would be to contact us to talk about it. I have put together detailed information about my wedding packages into one simple PDF document which I can email you.

We also offer Corporate portraits or Business Headshots. We can come to you and setup a studio in your office or any other location you choose. Please have a look at our Business Portraits portfolio HERE

So if you’re hell bent on having us shoot your wedding this year or beyond, we’d love to hear from you as soon as you say “YES” and long before you say “I DO”.

ENGAGEMENT PHOTOGRAPHY

An engagement session is HIGHLY recommended!

Besides the loads of fun we'll have shooting together, pre-wedding session also gives us a chance to get to know each other better so I can show up to the wedding more like a good friend who just happen to have a few cameras around his neck!
Up to 2 hours photo shoot in Sydney area, includes approximately 60-80 edited High Resolution JPEG images and costs $650.

"If booked in conjunction with our wedding packages, we will give a discounted rate of $399"

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

HOW LONG DO YOU STAY ON THE WEDDING DAY?

As long as you let us! In other words, from the getting ready stage to the drunk-on-the-dance floor stage.

MY FRIEND TAKES NICE PHOTOS, CAN’T I JUST GET THEM TO DO IT?

Well, yes you can, but ask yourself this: Do you want to put pressure on your friend or do you want them to enjoy your wedding with you? We’ve heard so many sad stories of friends or family members missing key moments. Not being able to cope with dark rooms and changing weather. Or worse still, getting too drunk to produce quality photography. Why take the risk with the most important day of your life? Chances are they will not have the relevant experience nor talent. If you need to save money, find savings elsewhere and leave your memories in the capable hands of a professional.

I’VE SEEN A PHOTOGRAPHER OFFERING ALL DAY COVERAGE FOR $1500 – WHY DO YOU COST AS MUCH AS YOU DO?

Every photographer has the right to charge what they feel is an appropriate fee for their work on your wedding. Our rates are based on the amount of coverage you get with us. As well as the amount of preparation, passion and absolute hard work we will put into your images and albums after the wedding. Our pricing reflects the high quality of our work comparable to many photographers who charge less. It is a simple as that. You’re also paying for an internationally recognised, professional and experienced photographer, not an average one and an assistant.

SO HOW DOES IT WORK ON THE DAY WITH YOUR BASE COVERAGE?

For clients who require up to eight hours of wedding coverage, natural documentary style photographic reportage kicks off the day with bridal preparation. We start capturing details, the expectation and enthusiasm of the big day ahead. We can also cover groom prep if you’d like this. Throughout the wedding, we’ll unobtrusively record your day through great distinctive photography. After the ceremony, we’ll go for a portrait session, making sure you have plenty of time to enjoy your own party. Our photographic coverage culminates shortly after your first dance, just long enough to capture some atmospheric dancing! We like to capture the essence of you, the sense of time and history that is your day with all your friends and family having a great time.

I AM HAVING A SMALL WEDDING, SHOULD I STILL HAVE PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHY DONE?

Definitely! Take the pressure off a family member and book a photographer for the ceremony and reception drinks, then they can properly enjoy themselves. We do tailored packages at special rates for small weddings and short coverage.

WE’RE GETTING MARRIED IN ANTARCTICA WILL YOU TRAVEL?

Yes! I will go wherever you want us to, both in the AU and Internationally. If you are having a destination wedding there is a real benefit to choosing a wedding photographer local to you and not your venue, as you will be able to build up a relationship and bond before your wedding. Outside of Australia, as a destination wedding photographer we would work out a suitable fee for travel and accommodation with you at the time of your quote. So feel free to get married in Bali, I’m sure we can manage it!

WHERE CAN WE GO FOR OUR ENGAGEMENT SHOOT?

Almost anywhere. We like to shoot somewhere different and a place that means something to you but we can also suggest places if you’re happy to go with our ideas. For out-of-Sydney locations we may ask for travel expenses to be covered.

WHAT DO WE DO WITH THE IMAGES FROM OUR ENGAGEMENT SHOOT?

Many people go for a custom-made book made for guests to sign on the wedding day, or perhaps have a print framed for signing. Others have used a framed print as gifts for parents or had a canvas wrap for their own home.

DO YOU USE FLASH IN THE CEREMONY?

In a word, no! Unless your ceremony happens at night time, or in extreme harsh sunlight. We generally feel it is kind of invasive. In fact, we will shoot almost all of your wedding in natural light, we only really bring our flashes out on the dance floor, or when using lighting in a creative way.

WHAT CAMERAS DO YOU USE?

Big, black, heavy, expensive ones. More importantly we use the highest quality lenses, allowing us to shoot in all situations, including candle light, without flashing and ruining the event atmosphere.

DO YOU CARRY SPARE EQUIPMENT AND DO YOU BACKUP OUR WEDDING IMAGES?

Yes, I’m a bit obsessed and have multiple camera bodies and most lenses. Your images are backed up automatically, as I shoot, and then again at home and again, and again…

ARE YOU INSURED OR AFFILIATED TO ANY SOCIETIES?

We have public liability insurance to the value of $20 million and our equipment is fully insured! We are also award winning members of WPJA – Wedding Photojournalist Association and WEP – World Elite Photographers. These associations are all invitation only groups of the highest quality photographers in the AU and the world!

WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU GET ILL OR GET TAKEN BY ALIENS?

Having been in the wedding industry a number of years we’re lucky enough to have a tight knit group of similar photographers, who would be our first port of call in the event of disaster. We then have other emergency cover and back up groups of photographers whom we could call upon. The wedding photography industry is a great place and everyone is willing to help out if disaster strikes. This has never happened though in over ten years of shooting weddings

I AM HAVING A WINTER WEDDING, WILL A LATER CEREMONY TIME CAUSE PROBLEMS WITH THE PHOTOGRAPHY?

It’s not a problem as such if you book a photographer who knows what they are doing, but we definitely wouldn’t recommend a time later than 2pm if you want to have group shots outside in the light. Make sure you ask any photographer you are considering to show you a full winter wedding they have shot; it is very different to shooting in the summer. We still shoot mostly natural light in winter but some photographers will up their use of flash, something to check if you find it intrusive.

I DON’T WANT THE STANDARD COVERAGE. WILL YOU DO LESS, OR MORE?

Of course, we will tailor a package for all our clients, so tell us your plans and we will give you a custom-made quote. We understand you may feel having photos just up to the wedding breakfast is enough (although not half as fun!) but we are also a rare breed of photographer who will stay until the very end of the night. Just get in touch if you would like to know more.

HOW DO YOU APPROACH A SAME SEX OR GAY MARRIAGE?

Just like any other wedding!

OUR PRIEST IS WORRIED ABOUT THE PHOTOGRAPHER DISRUPTING THE CEREMONY…

Well if you choose DLP you can reassure them that we are very quiet during the ceremony and also that we never use flash in the church.

WE LIKE YOUR WORK BUT YOU HAVE NEVER SHOT AT OUR VENUE BEFORE…

This really isn’t a problem at all. Choosing a photographer who hasn’t been to a venue can be a good thing, they will see the venue with fresh eyes, giving you a set of unique wedding photos. That works for me

IF YOU SHOOT DOCUMENTARY STYLE, DOES THIS MEAN YOU WON’T DO GROUP SHOTS?

Not at all. We think there is still a place for group photos at a wedding, as it tends to be one of the very few times that families get together.

DO WE NEED TO FEED YOU ON THE DAY?

If we are with you for more than four hours, then yes please. It’s a very long day for us photographers, and we’d rather not have to think about where we are getting our dinner from. In saying that, we don’t expect anything more than main meal, but when you are eating it is good if we can eat too. We don’t take pictures of people eating, no-one looks good doing it, and we want you and your guests to enjoy your food and not feel self-conscious.

WHEN DO WE NEED TO BOOK YOU, HOW DO WE DO IT?

If you’re thinking about photography, then book now! We generally take bookings 12-18 months in advance and shoot a limited number of weddings a year. In saying that, it’s not out of the question for us to accept a booking with just a few days’ notice, if we are available. We will send you our contract and take a 15% booking fee. The balance is then required for payment 2 weeks before the wedding. Most people tend to book in their venue, followed quite soon by their photographer, as good photographers do get booked up early.

WE’RE NOT GETTING MARRIED FOR A FEW YEARS BUT LIKE YOUR WORK, SHOULD WE WAIT UNTIL NEARER THE TIME?

We wouldn’t recommend it. Most clients book us between 12 and 18 months in advance. Some have signed us up two years in advance. Remember we can only ever shoot one wedding a day and once we are booked we are booked, so don’t miss out. By booking early you also make yourself immune from any price rises, as we always honour your original quote. Saying this, do always check your date, even if it is only a few months away as you never know!

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO SEE OUR WEDDING PHOTOS?

Whilst you’re enjoying yourselves on honeymoon, we’ll be attached to our computers tweaking your images to bring them to their full glory and show them to you on our blog. We always love the idea of them waiting for you on your return from honeymoon. Will strive to achieve this, but realistically in busy periods we can take up to four weeks. But you wouldn’t want us to rush them right?

DO YOU RETOUCH AND EDIT THE IMAGES?

We shoot in RAW format (unfinished out-of-camera files), then we individually process and edit every single image from your wedding. This involves creating unique colour effects, converting images to attractive black & white, and we will do some blemish removal.

DO YOU DO USB OR DIGITAL DOWNLOAD ONLY PACKAGES?

Yes, and if you change your mind and decide to have an album, you can always add it later, also getting it in the package is always more affordable. Think about all those holiday/birthday photos on your pc. How often do you look at them? If you go for the USB only chances are you’ll make a few prints and then they’ll sit in a drawer or on your computer, and you’ll never look at them enough. With an album you have a physical, tangible thing to look at with ease, to touch and remember, easily accessible to show people how fantastic you looked. We also favour coffee table books, which can hold many images, which really allows us to tell your story and doesn’t feel like a big bulky thing that has to live underneath your bed.

HOW DOES THE ALBUM DESIGN PROCESS WORK?

After you’ve selected which images you’d like in the album we will design the layout in the best way possible to tell the story of the day. We will email you a proof to look over and approve your album for printing.

WHAT IF IT RAINS ON OUR WEDDING DAY?

We’re professional wedding photographers, so if we’re not prepared for the rain who will be! Embrace the weather and you never know what you’re going to get. We’ll never drag your guests out into the elements but for the two of you it’s worth a little water for some epic images. Rain can make for great photo opportunities!

CAN WE GET OUR IMAGES TO PRINT THEM?

Your images are yours, so you can print and share as many as you like for yourselves or family and friends. While the photographer always retains copyright of the images (by law), i.e. you can’t sell them on to a third party and make a profit. Family and friends can also purchase prints from us if they don’t want to bother you 🙂

CAN OUR GUESTS GET PRINTS?

Your images are licensed for personal use only, and at most for sharing with immediate family. Broader event guests will have to contact us.

WHO OWNS THE COPYRIGHT TO OUR WEDDING PHOTOS?

You will own joint copyright to all photos we deliver. This allows us to use the images for our website, marketing, etc. but you are free to print, email and upload to Facebook, Instagram at your leisure.
