Tell us a bit about de lumière photography?
de lumière photography is a team of experienced photographers lead by Sarah, an award-winning photographer with many, many years in the industry across a variety of rolls. A de lumière photographer observes and documents a wedding day with our no fuss style, to treat our couples to gorgeous photography that showcases their personality.
What sets your business apart?
We focus on the emotion of the day, the real moments. A de lumière photographer is obsessed with light, and will go above and beyond to capture the magic of a wedding day.
What do love most about your job?
We absolutely adore capturing memories for our couples ensuring that their special day is preserved for future generations. There is nothing more rewarding than creating an Heirloom Album from our couple’s favourite moments and watching them pour over it with tears in their eyes remembering their day.
What services do you offer?
We are wedding, family and newborn specialists, often creating lifelong friends out of our clients, capturing their family growing year after year.
What is your favourite thing you have seen a couple do at a wedding?
Gah, so many wonderful things, sealing a bottle of champagne and letters from their parents into a wooden box to be opened on their 10th anniversary, the mother placing her daughter’s engagement ring on her finger after the groom as put the band on in the formal ceremony, including the mothers as their witnesses (bride’s mother was dying and had to be carried to the signing table), honouring the original owners of the land that they are getting married on, the very first legal same sex wedding I captured was between two gorgeous older ladies (both in their 60s) who had been together for over 20 years - as soon as they were announced as bride and bride everyone danced to JaiHo - best celebration ever!
Lastly, your favourite wedding picture you've taken?
Goodness that's such a hard question. It’s like asking which child is your favourite! My favourite images are always one filled with emotion, like the time the bride visited her Nonna in the Nursing Home on the way to the ceremony (there was an absolute abundance of tears, mine included), or when the Father of the Bride sobbed seeing his daughter as a bride, or Alex and Leigh dancing against the sunset on their very own horse stud, merely months after Alex suffered an horrific accident.
