Candid wedding photography
you’ll cherish forever
Working with de lumière photography is just like having another friend at your wedding who happens to be in the right place at the right time.
We blend into your wedding crowd so you feel at ease and can focus on taking in every precious moment of your big day.
We’re talking nanna hitting the dance floor for a boogie with the MC, belly laughs with your closest friends and that newlywed glow that otherwise would have been lost forever.
It's all in a name
The French say 'de lumière'. We call it light.

We were, and still are speechless.
The photos are fabulous, and
mirror our personalities
It is difficult to
put into words just how much we loved our photographs.
Sarah beautifully captured the style we wanted - for us this was relaxed, casual and nothing too posed or planned - we were astonished by how gorgeous the photos were and the beautiful details that were part of them thanks to her amazing skills!

Wedding photography collections as personal as your wedding
Everything on your big day is uniquely yours and exactly as you want it to be. So why be locked in to photography collection that wasn't quite what you had in mind?
We understand that every couple has a different vision and budget for their wedding day. Some love the full package with hand-made wedding albums, parent albums and wall enlargements, while others prefer to receive high resolution digital files and work out the rest later on.
That’s why we guide you with our most popular packages so you get an idea of what tends to work best, but are happy to customise a package to suit all your needs.
What you need
Here are a few general things as a starting point
Our packages begin at $1250 for an intimate collection through to a full day of wedding coverage.
All of our collections include:
A pre-wedding consultation
Your edited shots both in high resolution (for print) and low resolution (for the web) that you can access and share via your online gallery
A highlights slideshow that lets you relive your big day
Book within 2 weeks of enquiring and you will receive a one hour pre-wedding portrait session.
We’re busy bees and capture about 100 images per hour, which gives us plenty to work with
Book us for part of your day or take us along for the ride to capture the entire day
Commit to one photographer or add a second one for added perspectives and memories. We generally recommend a second photographer for weddings with over 100 guests.
We’re a team of Sydney photographers, but love to shoot elopements and destination weddings anywhere in Australia and across the globe.
Let's answer some of your questions
What’s the de lumière photography style in a nutshell?
Wedding photography follows trends, just like fashion does. What might be ‘in season’ this year will be out of style in years to come. Remember the 80s? Need we say more? We focus on what will matter to you in years to come rather than this year’s hottest photography trend.
At de lumière photography, we’ve mastered classic photography with a hint of magic. A Magic that plays with light and captures it in moments of raw emotions. We’re there to observe and document your wedding day and treat you to award-winning photography that brings out your personality.
If you’re after anything but cookie-cutter wedding shots, then we’d love to hear from you.
Do you support marriage equality?
Who will be photographing our wedding day?
de lumière photography is a close-knit team of like-minded creatives, all with the same keen eye for the perfect shot and years of experience under our belts. Get to know the people behind the lens here.
Would you recommend a second photographer for our big day?
It all depends on your style of wedding and the size of your celebrations. Once you exceed 100 guests, a second photographer will make a real difference to the variety of moments we’ll be able to capture for you. A second photographer takes the pressure off and will provide another perspective of your wedding, such as the groom getting ready or your guests enjoying themselves throughout the celebrations.
Are we going to meet you before the day?
That’s entirely your call. Choosing your wedding photographer is a big deal. Every couple approaches this process very differently. Some like to catch up face-to-face before booking us, while others are happy to confirm things by email or after a phone chat.
One thing that’s non-negotiable for us is a consultation a few weeks out from your wedding to go through your plans for the day, any special requests and your important ‘Plan B’. Knowing that your photographer is the one thing you don’t have to stress about, will make all the difference on your big day. Believe us.
When will I be able to show off my wedding photos?
We’ll usually deliver your wedding gallery within 4-6 weeks after your wedding day. We take pride in the quality of our work, which is why we take the time to tweak your shots until they’re just perfect.
How can we build our confidence in front of the camera?
It certainly helps to get to know your photographer before your wedding day. Having a test run in front of the camera can work wonders for your confidence. Many couples book a pre-wedding portrait session where they spend one hour with us in a fun-filled and relaxed shoot. Choose a location that you feel comfortable with, and we’ll capture a selection of photos that work a treat on your save the date cards or as a gift for loved ones. You can even opt to bring along your family pet or any kids and turn it into a mini family session.
We love your no fuss style. Are there other vendors that you can recommend that has a similar vibe?
Is there a travel fee?
We’re Sydney wedding photographers, but love working with couples in all corners of Australia and overseas.
If you’re planning a wedding anywhere more than 1½ hours from Sydney or the Blue Mountains you’ll be looking at a travel fee to get our team to your venue. Your best bet is to contact us so we can work out the finer details.
You're the perfect photographers for us. How do we book you?
Once we’ve worked out that we’re the perfect match, you’ll pay a deposit to secure our team for your big day, and we’ll agree on a package that suits you to a tee. You’ll pay the balance 14 days before the wedding when we finalise the last bits and pieces. That’s when we’re all set to celebrate with you.
