What is your shooting style?

We will have a lot of fun! We laugh together and celebrate your day – it’s so much easier to create photos when everyone has a blast! So let’s do this. We love to capture in a natural and stylish way.

We document your big day – telling a story of the events. During the ceremony we try to be unobtrusive. We want that your family and friends can concentrate on the ceremony. You will see us walking around a lot during the function – capturing special moments, cool dance moves, emotions and lots of love!

As  wedding photographers, we want to capture your big moments as well as the finer details. We will photograph your day with minimal interruption to your movements. Our style can be described as creative photojournalism. We want every wedding to look like it was shot for a magazine. We want to tell the story of your big day. Have a look at our wedding photography portfolio to get some ideas about our style.

When can we book our wedding photography?

We usually book up to 2 seasons ahead. We are usually booked out when you enquire short notice – but you never know. Esp. during the COVID-19 times we had some cancellations of big events (which we also photograph) and your wedding day might still be available. Just enquire to check our availability. 

How do we pose for photos?

Easy – you just don’t pose for photos. During the photoshoot we just have lots of fun. You are in love! You just got married! We will help you with a few directions to get you in the right light. But as non of our clients are professional models it’s something you don’t need to worry at all. We will create magic for you!

How many wedding photos will we get?

This is a tough one! It’s not at all about numbers but quality! 10 great shots are better than 100 bad ones.So it’s really hard to tell you a number – but we usually deliver around 50 images / hour. 

When will we get our wedding photos?

We usually deliver the pictures within 4 to 8 weeks after your wedding day (depending on season). Need it faster … just ask us. 

Can we meet you prior to the wedding?

Can we meet? Yes !!! We definitly should meet! You can always meet us in Doncaster East – or we also offer skype video calls should you be further away! It’s always good to have a chat!

Do you offer second shooter?

A second shooter is usally not necessary. Most weddings are shot by one photographer (either Souri or Andreas). Should you need a second photographer (large weddings over 300 guests – distances between photography locations) we can offer you a second shooter. 

Do you have insurance?

Yes. We have a personal liability insurance for all of our photography work. 


We love local Melbourne weddings but we also love to travel within Victoria, interstate or even overseas to capture weddings. Just contact us to discuss your location and travel arrangements. We do not charge travel costs within Melbourne, Yarra Valley & Mornington Peninsula. Lots of other locations in country Victoria are also included. 

Don’t hesitate to contact us for any interesting or destination weddings – we also travel overseas  to shoot weddings. We love to see different locations.


Yes. You will receive a standard photography contract to book our service. We can send out the contract and you just need to send it back signed. As we sometimes have clients from interstate and overseas (which makes it a bit harder to meet – but there is always skype ) we also can send you the contract via email and you just need to send us a scan. Keep it simple!


What happens when you are sick on our wedding day?

Sick? So far we could always shoot our booked events ourselves. We are 2 wedding photographers (Souri & Andreas)  – so there is a backup straight away inhouse. In the worst case we have a network of high quality wedding photographers which we could use. (As mentioned … we never came in the situation to not be able to shoot a wedding!)

Do you keep a backup of our wedding photos?

During the day we photograph on 2 memory cards simultaneously – and also have always 2 camera (sometimes 3). We always backup your photos on 2 harddrives and store them in the cloud. After the delivery we still keep your photos on our servers and in an online gallery for 1 year after the wedding free of charge. 

Do we get all the shots of the day?

On a wedding day you can shoot a lot of pictures – not all of them turn out great (we shoot sometimes in high speed burst mode which takes up to 7 pictures per second. This helps us to get a perfect shot. We usually give our clients a great selection of images and deliver around 50 images / hour.  We are sure you want quality not quantity.

Do we get digital files or prints?

We supply you with all the high resolution digital pictures as jpgs.  You get all the rights of the pictures for your private use with no watermarks. You will receive the pictures via a downloadable online gallery (all in high resolution). So you can easily order prints your as you wish. Of course we also offer you prints and high quality albums.


It is your wedding album! When you order an album design from us we will prepare some suggestion pages for your album. We then will go through every photo with you at your appointment making it so easy for you to select and decide on your favourite photos. Should you decide you want more in, or out, we’ll then rework the album, with you, to ensure it’s exactly what you’re after. We will help you create the wedding album of your dreams with a minimum of fuss.

How much time should we plan for the photoshoot?

This is totally up to you. Just keep in mind that professional photos take some time – it depends on your location, the weather and the number of photos you want. We always suggest to have a minimum of one hour with us to do some shots between the ceremony and reception. You get the best light the hour before sunset – this is not possible all the time and you can’t plan the weather – but try to aim for it. We are happy to discuss.


All pictures are colour corrected or adjusted for black & white (sometimes they just work better) or any other preferred style … We process and digitally enhance your best pictures. Let us know when you prefer a certain style of processing when you book us.

Should we get a pre wedding shoot?

This is a great way to get used to a photo shoot in a relaxed atmosphere. They are fun pictures showing your love … when you get them early enough you might want to use them for your invites. You can choose the weather and decide on the say. There is no time pressure. You can go to places you would not be able to get on your wedding day! Do it!

How long do you stay at our wedding?

You tell us … there is no time limit. Our most booked wedding package includes already 9 hours which is suitable for most weddings – but we you can always add extra hours to cover longer weddings in Melbourne. We always love to capture your whole day – from getting ready until you leave the reception.
