We are Drew and Maddy - Husband and Wife - Best friends and Photographers. We work exclusively with fun, free-spirited couples who have a passion for life and each other. Those who want their wedding day images to be more than just a series of photographs.

We are big on not taking ourselves too seriously and love to have fun. We are crazy about our little family and treat our dogs like royalty. When we aren't photographing the most beautiful love stories, we are planning our next adventure, making new memories, catching up on our favorite shows, spending time with friends, being foodies, enjoying coffee and living life to it's fullest!

Drew and Maddy 



We are a husband and wife team of photographers, and have been professionally photographing weddings together for over 13 years now! We work exclusively with fun, free-spirited couples who have a passion for life and each other; those who want their wedding day images to be more than just a series of photographs. We believe in love and equality for all and welcome all couples.

Our style is Romantic, Photojournalistic, Natural, Intimate. Our priority is to keep the day as relaxed & fun as possible for you and we are here to document what really happens in an unobtrusive way, capturing beautiful and truthful pictures with movement and emotion, that tell your story and represent the day as it unfolds. 

Our wedding work is on the documentary & whimsical side of the wedding photography fence, with dashes of rawness, romance, soft focus & moodiness at times. We look for the intimacy & the raw emotions in the 'in between' & unseen moments, searching for light, mood & beauty.

Get in contact with us! We want to hear all about you two and your wedding. If you find yourself super excited to have us be a part of your wedding, then we can send you out an agreement.

We work on a first come, first serve basis. In order to reserve your date, we require a signed wedding agreement and a $750 deposit. Then your date is booked with us!

A second instalment of $750 is due three months after signing the wedding agreement. The remaining balance is due two weeks before your wedding date.

Yes, of course! We would love to meet you! We’re there for one of the most special days of your lives and it’s important for us not to be strangers. Whether we meet in person or video call, it’s great to chat and get to know one another. We would love to hear all about you both!

Our backgrounds are in photography and design so it was a relatively smooth transition into the wedding world. We started our company in 2011 and we’ve been a part of over 300 weddings. And we’re having a blast every step of the way!

We both shoot with Canon 5D Mark IVs, and use mostly prime lenses. We prefer natural light, but will also ALWAYS be prepared with on-camera and off-camera flash.

We deliver your High Resolution photos at their highest quality (High Definition) online. With this digital delivery format for your photos, you can download the files to a USB drive as well share them with your family and friends.

Your wedding images will be complete and ready to view no later that 5 weeks after your wedding date. We want to edit and sort each wedding to the best of our abilities and take pride in the quality of photos we deliver. We won’t compromise the quality of the photos we provide to deliver them sooner.

We photograph in South Australia and Victoria, traveling in our Van, and love it! We never charge a travel or accommodation fee! We are always up for an adventure with you!

Drew, you were the absolute best! From the moment we met, we knew we were in great hands. Your chill and funny vibe made us feel so at ease, and your passion for photography is infectious! You captured our special day at the Manor Basket Range on Wednesday, April 24th, 2024, in the most incredible way. Your attention to detail, creativity, and ability to catch the perfect moments left Dan and I speechless! We can't thank you enough for the stunning photos, the laughter, and the memories we'll cherish forever!

Where to begin! We honestly cannot recommend Run Wild Photography more highly. From the very beginning, Drew was so easy to communicate with and talk to. There was never any question to small or silly, he was extremely prompt at replying and was more than happy to make our wedding day exactly personalised to how we envisioned. From the very first moment of us getting ready on our wedding day, Drew made the vibe so very natural and easy! He was doing a whole lot of shots without needing any in-put from us whilst we got ready - it was amazing. There were so many little additional things that Drew helped with also, such as pocket squares for the groom/groomsman, button holes for my Dad, the corsage for my Mum, setting the suits and wedding dress up beautifully... all these small details made THE WORLD of difference on the day to create a relaxed vibe. From the second we walked into the venue, the relaxed vibe continued and it barely felt like we were being photographed - the one thing we emphasised to Drew, was that we wanted to be present for our cocktail hour and actually enjoy our wedding day without being gone to long for photos. Let's just say - we didn't miss one thing of our day. Drew was able to do this in a way that captured everything we had dreamt of, without rushing us and in such a genuine relaxed way. We had SOOOOO many compliments about Drew and I can't wait to see our full wedding album. Our sneak peak photos came through very shortly after (THE NEXT DAY!!!), and they are absolutely amazing. From the bottom of our heart - thank you to Run Wild Photography for making our day seamless and perfect. If you are looking for a photographer, all we can say is - stop looking right now and book Drew + Maddy. - Mr and Mrs Langcake xx

I stumbled across Run Wild on Instagram & feel in love with their photography, we booked them a year out & over that year they were always happy to answer any questions we had & always had great suggestions, as the wedding got closer I started to get a little nervous about the fact that we had never meet and hoped that it wouldn’t be ‘awkward’ but the moment Maddy and Drew walked into my home I instantly felt at ease, they were so laid back we hardly even noticed they were there taking photos, when they joined in on our conversations it felt like they were friends from way back & not once did we feel uncomfortable throughout the day. The day after our wedding we received a very generous amount of amazing sneak peeks and 5 weeks later our amazing & rather large full gallery!

Drew was absolutely amazing! He was a great fit for us, whilst I’d never met him before he made it feel like I’d known him for a decade. He was so professional yet down to earth and relaxed. He helped us organise everyone and adapted to our ever changing timelines. Like everyone there are always distracted family members and guests and he did an unreal job at keeping them focused and on track. I would recommend Run Wild a thousand times over.

Drew made me feel at ease from the second I met him. I was getting ready at home and having him there with my girls felt like I’d known him for ages. He found the perfect balance between being fun and keeping us on schedule. We’re in love with our photos and will be recommending Run Wild to any engaged couples we know.

What are the various styles of wedding photography?

I want to learn more about wedding photography. What are the various different styles?

Run Wild Photography

Traditional, Classic:

The photographer works from a “shot list," ensuring he or she covers all the elements the bride and groom have requested.


Rather than posing your pictures, the photographer follows you and your guests throughout the wedding day, capturing events as they unfold in order to tell the story of your wedding.

Illustrative Photography:

A pleasing blend of traditional and photojournalistic, with an emphasis on composition, lighting and background.


Posed pictures that emphasize one or more people. Couples interested in a more edgy result may prefer Fine Art Portraiture , with its dramatic lighting, unique angles and European flavor.

High Fashion:

Striking, simple photographs that dramatize the subject—and, of course, her clothes!

Natural Light:

Rather than using a camera flash, photographers use the natural light found in a setting, usually daylight.
