Husband and wife team with a focus on your chemistry as a couple. If you're after creative and candid photography we'd love to hear from you!

We are a husband and wife team based on the beautiful Central Coast NSW, servicing the Central Coast, Hunter Valley, Newcastle, Sydney and - on request - beyond!

Our focus is on capturing your day as it unfolds naturally - we'd like you to be yourselves and have fun! The chemistry and love between people is what we like to preserve through our photos. We rather capture the candid moments as they happen than interfere too much through posing.

We'll make sure you feel relaxed and at ease with us, so you can fully enjoy this big day whilst we capture it for you. The most beautiful photos often happen when our couples forget about us being there (yes, we don't mind being invisible!). 

We'd like you to look back at your images and be reminded on how you felt that day, with our photos being a true representation of your wedding, through capturing the small details to big emotions and everything in between. Making sure that we know what you expect and want from us as your photographer is key. After all, it is your day!

We'd love to hear more about your wedding plans - let's meet up for a coffee and have a chat!


Questions and Answers

Do I need a deposit to secure my wedding date?

Smithers Photography

Yes. Unfortunately we cannot hold dates without a deposit payment. A paid deposit means that we won't take any other bookings for that day - it's all yours! This is also the reason why the deposit is non-refundable. Our deposit is only $500, with the remainder to be paid two weeks before the wedding.

Do you offer any print packages?

Smithers Photography

Absolutely! We cannot recommend professional prints highly enough. They are a beautiful display for your home, a perfect gift idea and a constant reminder of your special day.

We work with high quality labs, ensuring your wedding photos will not only look stunning, but also stand the test of time.

Depending on your style, we currently offer Acrylics and Fine Art prints. Our newest additions are a coffee table size Fine Art Album for the highlights of your day and a photo cards calendar, ideal to set up at your office or at home to remind you of your beautiful wedding.

Most of our wedding packages already have some prints included, but you are welcome to choose any products you love as an add-on.

Simply ask for more details - we are happy to show you samples!

I'd love a second photographer for my wedding - do you offer that?

Smithers Photography

You are in luck - we work weddings as a team, which means you will have both of us photographing during your ceremony - the most important part of your day. This is a great bonus! The rest of the day we mainly work as photographer and assistant, but we may both keep shooting when possible.

Do you do engagement shoots?

Smithers Photography

We sure do! They are a great way to get to know us and how we work, get comfy in front of our camera and have fun! Plus, you get some amazing photos to use in your invitations etc.

Price is $189 for a 1 hour shoot on location. For more information and inclusions please get in touch!

Does Bridal Prep include Groom getting ready too?

Smithers Photography

It sure can. Depending on your preferences and timeline, we can photograph both. We usually start with the boys and then photograph the girls in the final touches of getting ready.

Smithers photography was a local company recommended by our Wedding planner Zoe Boss from The secret garden. It was very easy coordinate and they were super easy to work with. They listened to what i wanted and went for it. I didn't want a bunch of staged photos of myself and Dave , i wanted to capture candid moments of us and our guests and they nailed it. I have a happy balance of photos that will last a life time. The day was amazing and our photos are a true reflection of our day.

Smithers Photography  

Thank you so much you two, we absolutely loved your day - we had a blast whilst we were working! So many laughs, and we are glad we delivered on that candid approach for you.

Smithers Photography were super professional, on time, and during the ceremony we barely even noticed they were there which i loved. They are easy to work with and their quality is fantastic

Smithers Photography  

Thank you Tiffany & Daniel! It was an absolute pleasure being a small part of your day. We loved the rural and secluded setting. Wishing you both and the kids all the happiness!

Flying colours for these guys! Honestly their communication was amazing particularly seeing we had our wedding during COVID and plans could have changed at any time. They went above and beyond on the day even travelling to three different locations across hunter valley and newcastle for us. I could not recommend them enough

Smithers Photography  

Thank you so much Jolana and Zac! You guys took all those challenges in your stride and kept on smiling. It was a beautiful day with you both. Lots of love!

Clint and Mareike are hands down the best! If your after a photographer who’s laid back, professional, friendly and has the best photography skills and thinks outside the box you won’t be disappointed!

Smithers Photography  

Thank you so much Kylie! We absolutely loved the relaxed vibe of your day, and you really outdid yourself with decorating the place! We enjoyed capturing the day for you. Enjoy married life!

16 Apr 2021

Clint and Mareike are just the best! Their work is just stunning and they make you feel so relaxed and at ease, plus they're always up for a challenge! Could not be happier with our wedding photos!

Smithers Photography  

Thank you Mel, it was so much fun with you two! Thanks for letting us whisk you away during the reception for some night shots, too!

7 Apr 2021

These photographers are very easy to get along with and pretty much swept through invisible on the day. They made sure we could enjoy our day without getting wrapped up in photos the entire time. The are relaxed and give good vibes making my day go ever smoothly. Thankyou clint and maraike

Smithers Photography  

Thank you Michelle, so glad you loved our approach! We loved being part of your day.

Clint & Mareike were very thorough in the lead up to the wedding, during it and afterwards. After our initial meeting, they kept in touch with us through their online service network which left no stone unturned. It was also linked to their invoice system so there were no misunderstandings. As the day got near their contact increased to reconfirm what our requirements were. THen as it got closer they would contact by phone. We had planned to hold the ceremony in a park with reception at a function room. Unfortunately there was terrible weather and some flooding. They came to the house instead at their own initiative and in plenty of time and took some lovely photos, scrambled to the reception venue and were there to photograph our re-located ceremony and after party. What a crazy day but their calm manner got us through. Our photos arrived in just a few weeks and they were beautiful. Nick and I would be happy to recommend the Smithers Team to anyone needing reliable, calm, friendly and efficient services. The phrase that comes to me is "Peace of mind"

Smithers Photography  

Thank you Mandy & Nick, we loved capturing part of your day! As you said, things don't always go to plan, but we're so glad you rolled with it and that we succeeded in taking the stress away for you. It was an absolute pleasure!

Clint and Marieke were wonderful through out the whole experience, leading up to our wedding, the big day and post wedding. They made our day very special without taking over and slipping into the background but still getting many memorable shots on the day. Both Pete and I would recommend them to our friends

Smithers Photography  

Thank you Susie and Pete! Your wedding was beautiful and we'll remember those big happy smiles of yours (and the beautiful cars!). Thanks for letting us be a part of your day - so glad we gave you those lasting memories.

We first found Smithers Photography while searching for local photographers who offered more than just full day packages. We wanted to spend more time with our guests than taking pictures which is why we choose the 4 hour package. This turned out to be the best of both worlds for us as Clint and Mareike are very talented photographers, professional and easy to work with. Upon meeting Clint and Mareike, they listened to what we wanted and took that onboard, which is easier said than done when the big day comes. Communication was a breeze. The photos were great and really captured the essence of our day. We had a chance before the wedding ceremony to have photos with our guests and after that Clint and Mareike blending into the background taking amazing photos for the remainder of the evening. Thank you for those memories of our special day.

Smithers Photography  

Thank you so much Fiona! It was so much fun working with you both - and it is the best compliment to hear we succeeded in giving you exactly what you wanted. Every wedding is so unique, and we loved that you made your personalities shine throughout your celebrations. Wishing you a wonderful future as husband and wife, and keep up that wonderful sense of humor!

Clint and Mareike were wonderful to work with for our wedding photography and we are beyond happy with the photographs provided. Both Clint and Mareike took photos on the day which allowed us to get multiple perspectives of the ceremony and different aspects of the reception. We were nervous about 1-1 photos but both Clint and Mareike made us feel comfortable and relaxed. Communication was excellent from the outset and both Clint and Mareike were lovely to have around on our wedding day. Smithers Photography is highly recommended from us -- we will be recommending them to friends.

Smithers Photography  

Thank you Sarah, it was such a privilege to be there and be welcomed by both sides of your family. Over the moon that you love your photos and made you feel comfortable on your day. Mareike and I wish you and Toby all the best.

Clint and Mareike are seriously a gold standard team. We had so many favourite photos. We are just so so happy. Our wedding was such a horribly hot day and you guys were just wonderful. You were fun, professional and you captured our hearts perfectly. You read our wedding and what was important to us beautifully. You made the whole experience so stress free. And your both extremely hard working. I really felt you cared about us and was so touched when you took those pics on the stair well after such a super long day. You felt like friends, I never felt like you were just there to take pictures and we were just your clients for the weekend. Thank you both for the stunning pictures and for being such lovely, relaxed photographers on our wedding day!

Smithers Photography  

Thank you so much Jeanette! Your feedback means the world to us. Your wedding was so special, with such a bunch of amazing people and so much love! Wishing you and Stephen a wonderful future together. Keep making each other laugh and treasure the small things.

20 Oct 2018

We had Smithers Photography photograph our wedding in October 2018, and we were so happy with beautiful photo’s they took for us. Clint & Mareike are both so professional, friendly, fun and made it a wonderful experience for us.

Smithers Photography  

Thank you so much Carla! We enjoyed being part of your special day, and we are happy you love your photos as much as we loved taking them for you. Lots of love to you and your beautiful family!
