OVERVIEW

Moon Honey is a Melbourne-based wedding photography and videography company specialising in capturing warm, emotional moments. Run by highly experienced professionals, Dana and James, Moon Honey has a knack for snapping candid, well-lit wedding images. From the vows and sunset kisses to the cutting of the cake and first dance, Moon Honey will capture your wedding in all its romantic glory.

Situated in Melbourne’s stunning Dandenong Ranges, Moon Honey is an all-in-one wedding photography and videography service that captures candid, tender moments in high resolution.

Whether they're shooting the exchanging of vows, tender kisses in front of a sunset or making the bridal party laugh for a group photo, highly experienced photographers, James and Dana, are professional and put their clients at ease. In fact, many who’ve worked with the pair have commented that the duo makes themselves “invisible” while still providing helpful guidance, fitting in like part of the family.

Moon Honey offers couples numerous, flexible wedding packages, all of which are all-inclusive - which means this talented pair will capture your entire wedding. From sentimental ‘getting ready’ shots to the first kiss and the newlywed send-off, Dana and James won’t miss a moment - they’re there for the whole day, so you can remember every magical moment. When all is said and done, you can expect beautiful, high-quality wedding photos that tell a romantic story.

"Words cannot describe how much of an incredible experience you made our wedding day ... I'm so grateful to have had you to capture it all and create beautiful photos and imagery that we all will cherish forever and that future generations of everyone involved will also cherish. The photos you have sent through are beautiful! Belinda looks so radiant and gorgeous! We're over the moon with the result." - Mark Iacobaccio

What makes Moon Honey an ideal choice for your Melbourne wedding:

  • They're story-focused. Moon Honey believes the key to powerful images is the story they tell, including what they say about the people in them and their relationships. Dana and James' storytelling is central in their approach - they want you to be able to relive and appreciate your wedding for years to come.
  • Passion. Dana and James absolutely adore weddings and will share your passion and excitement. “Producing videos and photographs for weddings is some of the most rewarding work we do. It’s about capturing a feeling. Those feelings are precious, and we work to make them accessible for a lifetime.”
  • Candid, relaxed photos. While we love a good ol’ staged family photo, you don’t necessarily want all your wedding photos to look structured - this is where Moon Honey comes in. Dana and James will capture relaxed, candid photos so you can remember the intimate, emotional moments where you felt most happy.
  • Quality work. Moon Honey has an impressive track record, with the pair telling Easy Weddings that couples cry happy tears when they see their wedding videos. “It's the quality of the work that our clients mostly tell us about. We often screen our videos in person with our clients for the first viewing - we consider it a failure if they don’t cry at least a little, which so far has never happened!”

Here’s what else you need to know about Moon Honey:

  • All-inclusive. Moon Honey’s all-inclusive packages mean they are there for your entire wedding, capturing everything from the vows to the farewell sparklers.
  • Social media images. Dana and James know you’ll be excitedly waiting for your first few images so you can share them with your friends and family on social media. This is why they’ll give you 10 edited photos within 48 hours of your wedding - a sneak peek if you will.

How would you describe yourself and your photography style?

Moon Honey’s James & Dana are efficient, relaxed, discreet, flexible, comforting and sincere, while their photography style is best described as warm. “We enjoy coating our images in honey-glazed tones to bring out the warmth of your day, we love capturing raw emotions and real moments.”

The team and Moon Honey were really professional and welcoming, from the consultation stage to planning to the big day itself we always felt like we were in great hands. Myself and some of my close friends are a bit camera shy but everyone felt really comfortable and had lots of fun with the photos, so many of our guests still look through our photo album and love looking back at how much fun they had and how well the day was captured. Both me and my wife couldn't be happier with the choice we made to pick Moon Honey, some of the shots we got are incredible and look as if we were professional models, If you want your wedding to be captured in a beautiful, creative and unique way look no further!

We cannot recommend Dana and James highly enough. The whole process from booking to delivery of our incredible photos and video was an absolute pleasure. They we both super relaxed and slotted into our day with ease, getting amongst the banter with our family and friends whilst getting ready and joining the fun on the dance floor- capturing all the content along the way. Each and every one of our photos are so loved- making it incredibly hard to short list them for a photo album to keep. They were punctual and proactive with communication, making the planning process stress free and enjoyable. If you’re looking for a photographer and videographer for your wedding day- we highly suggest booking with Moon Honey.

We recently had Dana and James video and photograph our wedding and after receiving the footage back and watching/going through it i was in tears all over again! it feels so nice that we can relive all the special moments the captured for us. The technique and skill these 2 posses is next level - the editing provides such a different feel to the usual wedding photo's i see and i love all the candid shots that were taken. Pricing is extremely fair and reasonable and they were there until the very end... talk about commitment to the cause! Thank you so much Dana and James :)

From the moment we met James and Dana we loved their vibe and personalities. They were extremely supportive of our vision and what we wanted to create on the day of the wedding with photos and videos. We also found their quote reasonable for what they were offering as a package. On the day of the wedding they were a dream to work with, collaborating and directing us and our guests in a fun and respectful manner. They felt part of the wedding and by the end of the night feeling like friends and part of our community. Obviously the most important part of this review is how epic the actual photos are and the video montage of our special day. So many people on social media have commented how they think our wedding photos and videos are the best they have ever seen. We are so grateful, thank you.

Choosing a photography and video team for our wedding was a process as photos and videos of the wedding day lives forever, and would encapsulate the special day of our lives. And was absolutely grateful to have both services done by the creative eyes of Moon Honey. When we saw Moon Honey's creations, we knew we had to contact them straight away. Dana and James provided us with the best genuine service from the beginning until the production of the end photos and video. And the photos and video has certainly encapsulated the feelings and memories we felt on the day. Thank you Dana and James! Ps. We also acquired their artistic eyes for a pre-wedding shoot, and it was a great experience to build that chemistry prior to the big day! our photos felt real and truly candid with the creative directions from their team.

How long do I actually need a photographer for?

I've had a couple of quotes (varying from $1,500-$4,500). What's the overall difference between a 2k, 3k and 4k package? First-time bride here. Any help is appreciated!

"Our advice would be to find someone whose work you really like who can fit within your budget to cover the full event."

We strongly recommend having photos (and video) for the full duration of your wedding, from prepartion all the way through to the reception. It's hard to know what will be important until it actually happens. Even as professional photographers, we didn't know what photos we wanted captured until after the event. Having full coverage meant we got most of what we wanted.

Getting married isn't just about the ceremony, it's about the interactions that you have with your closest loved ones. Many of these moments occur outside of the ceremony itself, and having these professionaly documented truly is priceless. 

When it comes to setting a budget and what the difference between prices offered by different photographers/videographers, it comes down to what they think their product is worth. The truth is, you often get what you pay for, but that doesn't mean there aren't bargains to be had. Our advice would be to find someone whose work you really like who can fit within your budget to cover the full event.

Note: Don't forget about video, most of our clients weren't even considering it but in the end it can be a more powerful and concise record and way to share and remember this milestone. Have a look at our video for Maddie and Bas to get an idea! It's true a picture can tell a thousand words, but a video will really take you back there. 

Should we have a "first look"?

Moon Honey | Photography & Video

This can work really well for some couples. One of our couples chose to do this so that they could walk down the aisle together.

The benefit was that we could do the couple photos before the ceremony, which changed the flow of the day entirely. This meant they went straight from the ceremony to reception without having to leave their guests. This worked really well for our couple, as it allowed them some time to be together before the big celebration and more time with the guests at their reception.
