Describe de lumière's photography style
We aim to capture the essence of your day, the quiet moments, the joy, the tears and the laughter, along with all the important moments. Our photographers are highly experienced professionals who aim to be as unobtrusive, and helpful as they can. You may even at some point in the day, find them tying the groomsmen's ties, helping carry the bride's dress, or adjusting a dad's button hole.
Do you support marriage equality?
Who will be photographing our wedding?
Our photographers are experienced, professional photographers who genuinely love what they do. You can read more about us here.
Why would we need a second photographer?
We recommend that if you are planning on inviting more than 100 guests that you include a second photographer in your wedding collection. Having a second photographer present on your wedding day takes the pressure off the first photographer, they will usually photograph the groom getting ready while the first is with the bride, and having a second photographer will ensure that you receive plenty of photos of your guests enjoying themselves on your big day.
Should we meet?
We would love to meet with you prior to your wedding day, but we are also just as happy to have a conversation with you over the phone if that's what you would prefer. Some couples like to meet up before they book, others book after a couple of emails, we always call our couples in the weeks leading up to their day to finalise timings and chat about wet weather options.
What will be included in our wedding collection?
Every collection includes a pre-wedding consultation (either in person or on the phone), high resolution images ready for print along with the web ready versions, an online gallery to share with family and friends, along with a highlights slideshow from your day. You can then choose to include a second photographer, add an album or parent albums. Every wedding is different so we like to customise our collections to suit.
Do you offer albums, and printed product?
We love our couples to have tangible, printed heirlooms to pass down to the next generations. Our most popular collection includes an album, we also have parent albums, prints and framed options for you to choose from. You can see a selection of our products here.
How long will it take to receive our images?
You will receive your gallery within 4-6 weeks of your wedding day depending on the time of year!
We are a little nervous about being in front of a camera...
A Pre-Wedding portrait session is the perfect way to take the nerves of being in front of a camera out of your wedding day. We spend an hour at a location of your choice, chatting, laughing and capturing some gorgeous images. The images are great to use as save the date cards, Christmas presents and many couples print their favourite image to have on the present table at their wedding. We often include the family pet, and kids (if you have them) in these sessions.
Is there a travel fee?
Travel fees apply to any location or venue that is more than an hour and a half out of Sydney or the Blue Mountains. If you are unsure, just ask!
We would love to book your services, how do we proceed?
A booking fee is required to hold your date once you have decided to go ahead with our services, with the balance of the collection fee due 14 days prior to the wedding day.

Your wedding day should be as unique as you are...
It is important that you choose a wedding collection that suits the needs and style of your day so we like to cater our services to meet the expectations of each and every couple we work with.
If we don't have a collection that suits your exact needs, we can tailor one just for you. We offer collections including part day coverage & full day coverage - starting from the bride getting ready, and through the reception. We also photograph intimate weddings & elopements.
We photograph around 100 images per hour of coverage so you will be spoilt with an array of images to choose from.
Our Wedding Collections include photography coverage, a personalised online gallery with highlights slideshow to share with family and friends, and the printable digital images from your day.
We love our couples to have tangible printed heirlooms to treasure for future generations, so we have a gorgeous range of Australian made albums that can be included in your collections.
If you choose our Platinum or Gold Collection we will include a second photographer ensuring that we capture every detail of your day.
If you are booking a destination wedding and want us to travel to your special place anywhere in Australia or across the globe, contact us and we can chat about travel packages.

Mel and Brenton
So hard to describe perfection in such a small space. From our first meeting to our engagement shoot through to our wedding day, Sarah was amazing. She is so passionate about what she does and this is evident both in her work, the way she talks about light and the excitement she shows when she has just captured 'that' shot!
Christie and Lai Meng
Sarah is an incredible photographer. She has an amazing eye and an extra- ordinary skill to capture every moment of your important event. My wife and I were so thrilled when we looked at the photographs she had captured of our wedding. No words are enough to express our gratitude for having found Sarah.
