We are a Perth based, husband + wife team, working full time as professional wedding photographers, with 30yrs experience and an outstanding reputation. We love people and are passionate about marriage.
Every couple is unique and has different wants and desires for their own wedding day, which is why we do not have a “one size fits all” mentality when it comes to your wedding.
We take on a limited number of weddings per year in order to give our clients the attention they deserve, and would love to hear more about your wedding to see if we are a good fit for each other!
We are based in Perth, West Australia but travel anywhere for our clients.
We captured wedding images for Bec + Maitland back in November of 2016. A truly beautiful couple. We went outside from the wedding reception to see if the sunset would do anything special. After waiting only about 10 minutes, the sky lit with a beautiful golden glow. We grabbed a couple of images during that 30 seconds of awesome - this is one of the shots that resulted. Our couple loved it.
We captured this image of our bride and groom on the grand staircase of Peel Manor House, just south of Perth in Western Australia. We love that the black and white adds to the old world charm of the staircase. The shot was made extra fun as it was captured whilst the guests all watched as the staircase is in full view from the reception seating. Needless to say, our bride LOVES this image - and so do we.
This shot is from a pre wedding shoot we did for Michelle + Evan. The day of the shoot was raining all day, mainly just a fine mist of rain and the sky was completely grey. We LOVE shooting in the rain, but not all couples are happy about getting wet, so, we offered the couple to swap their shoot to a different day. Our bride to be had gone and had her hair and makeup done specially for the shoot so we decided 'the show must go on'. They were quite worried about whether they would get great photos, we assured them that the rain would not affect the shoot, in face they would get shots even more amazing than without rain.
They absolutely LOVED the end result. This shot was taken right at the end of our shoot, they were, by now, pretty wet, so we had them play in the stream. We asked them to kiss with as much passion as they could muster and this is what came from that - gorgeous.
This is from a pre wedding shoot last month for our couple Nicole + Christian. He works as a volunteer fire fighter and wanted to incorporate this part of his life in the shoot. On the day we got together, we went to a stretch of parkland to capture some 'typical' pre wedding shoot images before we headed to the fire station. We were in luck as the fire truck wasn't called out to an incident so we were able to set this up in the car park outside. We put a flash in the cab, a flash behind the couple, a couple of flashes either side (all covered in plastic of course). We then waited for the sun to begin to set, turned on the fire trucks water system and had our heroic fireman rescue his lovely lady. The shot turned out great and the couple love it.
This shot is from the wedding day of Jaye + Dave, they were married in October. The shot is captured in an underground tunnel leading to a car park. Our couple were tired as this shot was at the end of their location photography on their wedding day. We quickly set up a couple of flashes and our couple quickly got in place. One of us then flicked the bride's veil up and ran out of shot whilst the other took the shot. We're really happy with this image, as is our bride and groom. We were lucky too, a security guard came to tell us to move on just as we'd captured this one.
We were photographing Sarah + Mark for their pre wedding photo shoot. They asked if we could head to their favourite beach. It was a gorgeous afternoon, but the sky was pristine clear. Our couple were hoping for some clouds and a beautiful sunset. The sunset wasn’t too special so after a couple of shots we headed back to the car park. When we turned around there was an amazing glow in the sky, we quickly set up a couple of flashes on the ground behind our couple for some backlighting, had them stand under a little tree and captured this image. Our couple were so happy with this last shot we captured - and, so were we!
Our couple, Yaira + Sean had their wedding in early January on a super hot day, The heat was intense and there was no breeze to lessen the temperature effect. This did not stop our couple from enjoying every single minute of their wedding day though. The groom’s father brought 3 brand new Harley Davidson motorbikes especially for the wedding day, they were driven as an escort ahead of the wedding cars. So, we had to come up with a great photo idea to incorporate them in.
The entire wedding party was in love with the idea of doing a shot under this old bridge in Fremantle, WA. They got some much needed shade from the sun’s intense heat; and the low light + concrete walls and columns were a great background to create this shot.
We used 4 off camera flashes to illuminate the couple and the bikes so that we could darken everything else right down.
This image is now a double page spread in their wedding album.
We photographed this gorgeous couple’s wedding in March 2016. One of the venues they chose for their photo session in between the ceremony and reception was the University of WA. This is a popular choice for bridal party photography in Perth. It consists of beautiful old architecture as well as stunning gardens. This gorgeous tree is a popular meeting point for people on the grounds. The bride was keen to have some photos that showed lots of garden settings. So the tree was an obvious choice. The light was too harsh on the other side of the tree. But on this side, it filtered beautifully through the branches. so we stood them amongst the roots of the tree, surrounded by a carpet of ivy and captured this image - we love it, so do the couple, it is a feature image in their wedding album.
This image was captured underneath a bridge spanning the Swan River in Perth. Our couple wanted a shot across the river showing the city skyline. Whilst we were there we kept looking at the strong lines of the underneath part of the bridge. So, we lay on the floor to see if it would work. It did, so we got our bride and groom up on the concrete wall at the river’s edge. We waited for the wind to come and ruffle the layers of her amazing, couture wedding gown and her veil and create this shot. We just love it. Our bride wanted images fit for a magazine; and that is what we gave her. We are very proud of the fact that all our wedding images submitted in competitions are of real brides and grooms on their actual wedding day.
This image was captured at a wedding on a beautiful spring day here in Perth. The couple chose to have some of their wedding photos taken at a very popular location here - the University of WA. It’s popular because it has beautiful gardens and wonderful old architecture. Our couple actually had these photos taken just before their ceremony as they didn’t want a long amount of time between the ceremony and the reception. So, they chose to go against tradition and see each other before the ceremony. This shot, amongst the arches, was semi setup but we had them all chatting to each other so it had a more casual look about it. They were a fun group of people to work with. We love bringing out the texture of the limestone in our post processing and think it looks pretty good in this image.
We like to capture what we call a ‘kiss goodnight’ shot of our bride and groom during their reception. It usually serves as a perfect image to end their wedding album. This shot was in an unusual location. We noticed the hallway into the ladies bathroom at the reception venue had textured wallpaper and dim lighting - we knew it would be perfect for our shot. Although we got a couple of strange looks from some guests, capturing a sexy, intimate moment between our newlyweds outside the toilet, everyone was amazed at the end result. We used a couple of torch lights to give us enough light to create the image and our couple enjoyed their moment alone. We decided to finish this in a sepia tone, it matched perfectly with their classic, elegant outfits. Sometimes the most unusual locations make for amazing images - our couple loved this one, it’s a double page spread in their wedding album.
We love this image, captured in the back of our couple's wedding car, a beautiful old Jag from Belle Limousines in Perth, Western Australia. The bride and groom chose the beautiful Brookleigh Estate for their wedding, a stunning equestrian venue, you can see some of the paddocks in the background. The limo driver was very accommodating when we asked if we could take this shot from the driver's seat. The shot is very natural, the bride loved 'putting her feet' for a bit.
