Soft dappled light, a warm Autumn afternoon, glasses clinking. Bubbles, giggles and smiles all around… Now, if only we could work out how to get me into my dress… Luckily we had Rog there to help!
Rog is such a great character and so down to Earth – which is everything you want in a wedding photographer. From the moment we met him at our eShoot, we felt like old friends; making us feel so comfortable in front of the camera. He helped in so many ways on the day (outside of the realms of his photographic duties), our wedding definitely would not have run as smoothly, without his friendly knowledge and many years of wedding experience. Our photos are absolutely gorgeous and Rog and his team captured every element of our day to perfection!
With a fantastic sense of humour, oodles of wedding experience and an exquisite style of photography, we were so lucky to have Rog as our wedding photographer.
We love it when our Brides and Grooms are comfortable and ‘feeling the love’ on their big day… It’s even better when they have a bit of a fun side, in a relaxed way of course…
Or maybe it’s just the two of you eloping, or with your nearest and dearest, your day is yours and a celebration of your love.
We offer a range of packages and beautiful products, including ‘Thank You’ Cards, ‘Fine Art’ Prints, Leather Albums & Parent Albums and our all day wedding photography packages start from $3,000.
For elopements we offer two, three or four hours coverage with packages starting from $750.
Planning to ‘pop the question’? Maybe you’re already engaged and wish to capture the special bond between you…
We can capture those special times in a candid relaxed way.
We offer a single package for $300 with one photographer as well as a range of products including ‘Fine Art’ Prints.
Corporate – We know that every event is different and are flexible enough to offer what you need. Conferences, Awards Nights, Gala Dinners, Team Building Events…
We can tailor your photography sessions, and are happy to work with you in both the lead up, and also on the day to make sure that you are provided with the best possible experience.
Commercial – Your Marketing brochures deserve great photos!! Your Advertising images deserve to be great!! Your Website deserves great photos!! Your Products, Your Food, Your Property… The list is endless.
Prior to commencing ArtyJ Photography, I was a founding director of Popcorn Photography and, since 2007, have shot over 400 Weddings & Elopements (including in the Hunter Valley, Newcastle, Central Coast, Port Stephens, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Canberra, Milan, Tuscany, Venice, Amalfi & Santorini), nearly the same number of eShoots, as well as over 100 Corporate & Commercial assignments.
My working style is pretty laid back, chilled and relaxed, and I’m based in the beautiful Hunter Valley in NSW. That said, I travel extensively and always love having new places to shoot.
Your big day should be all about ‘YOU’, not about me or us (as we normally have two photographers on your wedding day), so we like to capture what is amazing and special about you and your relationship. This starts with our eShoot where we work together to bring out the magic that is your ‘love story’ in a relaxed and candid way.
We also acknowledge and believe that weddings are a celebration of two people in love, no matter their gender, and support the gay & lesbian community in their struggle to gain legal recognition of same sex marriage in Australia.
ArtyJ Photography acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of the lands on which we work and live. We pay our respects to the Elders past, present and future, and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples.
Our standard travel area includes the Hunter Valley, Newcastle, Central Coast, Port Stephens, Mudgee, Sydney & the Southern Highlands.
We will only accept one wedding on any given day and all of our photographers are members and Accredited Professional Photographers (APP) with the Australian Institute of Professional Photographers (AIPP).
I really should enter more… trouble is I’m too busy shooting for clients.
