Quietly capturing moments of genuine emotion and connection, we celebrate love in its most authentic and candid form.

Your wedding day is arguably one of the biggest days of your life. It is a chance to celebrate the connection of two souls surrounded by the love of friends and family. At Studio Downe Weddings it is our absolute pleasure to be able to capture all the laughter, tears, outrageous dance moves, unique details, and special moments that make your day perfectly yours.

At Studio Downe Weddings we strive for authenticity in every aspect of our service. Our photography style is candid and photojournalistic. We quietly capture moments of genuine emotion and connection, celebrating love in its most authentic and candid form. We promise not to tear you away from the dance floor, or put you in any tacky or awkward poses - it is our job to make you feel supported, relaxed, and most importantly - overflowing with love!  

We promise to take the time to get to know you and your partner - learn your love story, discuss what is important to you, and provide support and assistance however we can. We provide transparency in every aspect of our service - all our packages and prices are listed on our website, you can view our availability through our up-to-date calendar, and you'll find an extensive FAQ section to hopefully shed some light on any questions you might have.

Here at Studio Downe we are LGBTQIA+ allies, and work with clients from a broad range of age groups, and religious and ethnic backgrounds. While Canberra is our hometown, we provide our services Australia-wide.

Studio Downe was founded on the belief that all couples deserve beautiful ceremony, couple, and family photography. For that reason, we offer affordable Canberra wedding packages that are filled with value. We are always striving to keep authenticity at the forefront of what we do — both in photography and client care. 


Hey there, I'm Lydia! I am a photographer with over 5 years experience, photographing across Australia. I started my career as a commercial photographer but soon found myself transitioning to weddings. I am drawn to the authenticity of wedding photography - I am not there to create a moment, I am there to honour and celebrate genuine connections and moments of love.

You will receive a sneak peak within 48 hours of your wedding so you can announce you nuptials to the world! The full gallery will be delivered within 4- 6 weeks.

This depends on what areas of your wedding you would like photos of. I suggest writing a list of what is important to you and your partner.

Here’s a rough time guide for a typical western wedding. (Please note this will vary depending on cultural and religious practices.)

• Preparation - 30mins -1 hour per group
• Ceremony - 1 hour
• Post ceremony photos and family photos - 1 - 1.5 hours
• Wedding party photos - 30 - 45mins
• Couple photos - 1 hour
• Reception - 2- 4 hours Coverage is often determined by the run sheet and when you choose to have speeches, meals, first dances etc.
• Dance floor - 30mins.

Not at all! My style of photography focuses on capturing candid, naturally occurring moments. During the couple shoot I will rarely ask you to just ‘pose’. Instead, I have a collection of thought-provoking and entertaining prompts to ensure you and your partner feel as relaxed as possible.

Two words - golden hour! Approximately 1 hour before sunset and half an hour after sunset is the best time to schedule your couple photoshoot. That is when the sunlight is soft and warm and everything is just that little bit more romantic! Having said that though, being a wedding photographer means being flexible and creative. If sunset doesn’t work for your timeline I will work with you to create stunning couple photos regardless of the time of day.

My style of photography is based on capturing the candid and real moments. All final photos are edited with minimal colour grading and basic adjustments. I do not provide photoshopping as I believe that contradicts the ethos of my candid style.
