Upper Hunter Wedding Photography
Our Approach to Weddings
If you are recently engaged and looking for a photographer in the Upper Hunter that will shoot candidly and not pose you, then we are so glad you found us! We specialise in getting natural, fun images from couples that that think they are a bit awkward. With all our wedding and elopements in the Upper Hunter, our goal is for you to enjoy yourselves and have an amazing time at their wedding. If you are relaxed and having a great time, then you will get images that reflect just this.
Our typical couple wants beautiful and timeless images and doesn’t want to pose for photos. They also don’t want to leave their guests for hours to do a photo shoot with a photographer. They are probably a bit camera shy and feel that the best photos of them are the natural candid photos.
It is so so important to us that couples enjoy their day and that photos don’t interfere or dictate the day. It is also important to us that we keep moments real and don’t contrive things, just because “it would make a good photo”. When you manufacture and set up moments you give the photos much less meaning. because it’s fake. When you look back at the photos, you will remember that that is when “we pretended” to do something. We are an Upper Hunter wedding photographer & Upper Hunter elopement photographer, not directors on a film set. We document the day really naturally and candidly and sometimes give you prompts and a tiny bit of direction if needed.
We love to photographing wedding and elopements all over the Upper Hunter and when we photograph your wedding, you’ll find out just how relaxed and fun we are. We have photographed hundreds of weddings… and we have screaming kids… so nothing at a wedding stresses us out. We really want you to let your guard down, open up and let your real personalities shine through. Then we can capture the real laughter, the real emotion and give you awesome images that you will absolutely love!

Our passion is wedding & elopement photography and we feel so lucky to be invited into people lives each week. So if you are looking for an Upper Hunter wedding photographer then we would absolutely love to be considered.
Our favourite wedding venues in the Upper Hunter include:
Two Rivers Denman
Vines Restaurant at Hollydene Estate
Scone Race Club
The Cottage Scone
Russley Rural Retreat
But if you were to ask me what my favourite wedding venue was, I would have to say that it is anywhere I haven’t photographed. I love photographing new places, so even I haven’t had a wedding there, I would most definitely love to.
Upper Hunter Elopement Photography
I just love elopements and I really love the Upper Hunter as a location. If you are looking to elope, you could potentially elope at any farm any restaurant or any property in the Upper Hunter region. If you love the place then there is no harm in asking.
Elopements are low impact and they are generally less than twenty people. Sometimes it is just the couple. So for a small fee, you could just about get married anywhere. As an Upper Hunter elopement photographer, I love the intimacy of elopements and small weddings. The day becomes totally about the couple and less about you hosting a party. The Upper Hunter is an awesome elopement destination and I would love to be your photographer for it.
Thank you for considering us for your Upper Hunter wedding and elopement photographer.
