Bear Hunt Photography
Sarah is the creative behind Bear Hunt Photography, an Illawarra-based business that specializes in weddings. She made her way into photography from the field of journalism, with a belief that she is more of an observer than a writer.
Sarah says: “…imperfectly capturing honest moments in time appeals to me more than attempting to describe those moments in words.” Rather than posing or coaxing her couples into positions, she strives to be unobtrusive and blend in so that you almost forget she is even there.
Pamela of Ela Studios established her photography business back in 2008 after dropping out of her medicinal chemistry degree to pursue her creative side. Many years later, she says that she still gets a kick out of documenting weddings and “getting to know the beautiful aspects of the many love stories that come our way.”
In addition to wedding photography that captures the intricate details and the in-between moments, Ela Studios also offers videography for couples wanting the best of both worlds.
William Koon Weddings
William Koon offers stunning wedding photography and videography to couples saying “I do” in Sydney and on the South Coast of New South Wales. He believes that both art forms are extremely powerful in that they can empower you into shedding tears for people you may not even know, in addition to evoking "a whole array of other emotions."
Over the last decade, William has been continually honing his skills so that he can share the beautiful stories of others through his lens.
Todd Hardingham Weddings
Todd Hardingham is a wedding and elopement photographer who is based in the city of Wollongong but works throughout the South Coast region. He takes a relaxed and fun approach to his work, ensuring that every moment of your special day is captured beautifully and with lots of laughter thrown in.
Todd would prefer that you don’t think of him as a wedding photographer but more of a new friend who wants to chat while capturing epic photos along the way.
Purple Bird Photo
Purple Bird Photo is the team of S. M. Imran Hassan and Sazzid Ahmed who capture weddings in the Illawarra and South Coast regions, as well as in Sydney and Adelaide.
The folks behind Purple Bird are professionals when it comes to visual storytelling and strive to capture the most precious moments of your special day through their lenses. Over the last seven years, they have covered hundreds of wedding events and worked as far afield as India, the Philippines, and Bangladesh.
Dan Cartwright Photography
Dan Cartwright describes his photography as “for the lovers and the adventurous,” with the artist having an unobtrusive and honest style. Based in the Southern Highlands, he works throughout Australia and beyond to document couples on their wedding day, as well as helping to make the planning process as easy as possible.
Dan loves photos that have pops of color and shoots in a style that is timeless to ensure your wedding photos will look as fresh in 10 years' time as they do today.
Alana Taylor Photography
Alana Taylor says that she is “forever finding magic in the in-between moments” and we love the results. She radiates towards couples who are laid-back, adventurous, and romantics at heart - the ones who care more about “capturing real love and moments than the expected.”
People and connections are both incredibly important to her as a photographer, with her storytelling approach delivering outstanding results. Alana allows your day to unfold naturally while she documents it in a true and honest way.
