We used Tony Vo photography and Carpe Diem Studios for the video. They were fabulous. They are both situated at Carpe Diem Studio in
High st Northcote, Highly recommend them. :D

Can't recommend a videographer, but Robyn Slavin was a great photographer on the day. Very relaxed, friendly, easygoing, and we really like our photos. We paid under $2000 for our package, which was our aim.

Hi
I can't recommend highly enough Frank from one2one photography. He was at my house before i got there and stayed until after the last guest left. I received 1513 photos (high res, all edited) on disc within 3 weeks of the wedding. The day after our wedding (day before we left for honeymoon) he had already put a story and a few photos up on his blog for us to see.
His website is http://www.one2onephotography.com.au. Cost about 2k all up for everything.

For video we used Cinema Weddings. He has done a great job, except we are not happy with the album cover (it is pink rose bouquet, i didn't even have roses) and the CD's are blank (ie no cover on them). We have raised it with him and we are paying another $160 to get our photo on both. DH told him that as a matter of customer service in the future, he should include it in his price.
His work has been fantastic and again another quick turn around (we had a sample and full unedited by the time we got back from honeymoon). He cost us $1700. (plus the $160 we now have to spend on the new covers and CDs).

We used Yervant as a photographer and they were amazing, we only have our proof album back but we have thousands of fabulous photos, he is currently designing our album and we didn't have a videographer but Yervant recommends Pro Eye who look really good :D

Hi,

I am getting married in October- we are using Sorrento Wedding Photography http://www.sorrentoweddings.com.au a friend used them for her wedding last year so it was easy for us to go with them. Their studio is on Little Bourke St in Melbourne- check out their blog which has recent weddings.

Not sure about videographer, we are getting a family member to video the wedding to cut costs.

Hope this helps.

H :)

We used LePortrait and had/having a great experience with them.
We were slack in picking photos for our album so just waiting for that to come back at the moment but have had heaps of prints done by them and highly recommend them! :D
(Some of our pics are even on their website!! :heart: )

Front Cover Photography in South Yarra were great. They are being used by family for another wedding. Everything was easy and straight forward with them. We knew exactly what we were getting from the start and we were really happy.
