Behind The Brand
How would you describe your photography style?
Meaningful, romantic, timeless images with a warm, editorial approach.
We collect the grand gestures and the finer intimate details in a natural and unobtrusive way. Mood, movement and the moment direct our lens.
What is it that makes an image magical?
The process of creating a magic moment lies in presence, with each other, with the moment, for you and for us.
A magic image is one that conveys feeling and evokes nostalgia to relive the memory again and again.
What advice would you give to the camera-shy couple?
Be present with each other, take it in, don’t hold back and don’t look at the camera – we’ll capture your love in an honest and natural way celebrating the joy and the romance.
Do you travel interstate or internationally?
Yes! We have photographed weddings and editorial throughout Australia and internationally. We are currently taking bookings for the European Summer 2020.
As an estimate, how long does your editing process take?
We aim to provide a small series of images that capture the essence of your day as soon as possible. We then hand select and hand edit all imagery with attention to every detail. You can expect a turn around within an 6-10 week period.
Describe a magical moment from a wedding you’ve photographed…
Most recently we were invited to photograph a same-sex marriage ceremony where the sentiment was simple, “because two people fell in love”.
The overwhelming support and acceptance for this couple from their nearest and dearest despite the adversity they had experienced in their individual lives and relationship, was a reminder to us that love truly wins. Each image captured evoked this universal magic and spoke to the value of relationship. This is why The Loved Ones exists, to celebrate the beauty found in life with our loved ones, to capture those magic moments and everything in between.
Why we love it…
There’s a dreamy delicateness to their frames that is just so compelling…an elegant nostalgia infused with sentiment and timeless beauty.
For the couple…
For the creative romantics – lovers who find themselves drawn to poetry, painting and cinematic film. Matt and Madeline approach each wedding artistically, shooting in a manner both evocative and perpetually timeless.
Consider a location surrounded by natural beauty, a venue steeped in antique touches or a dress crafted from whisper-thin lace.
