Capturing beautiful natural photos of your wedding day

If you're looking for beautiful, natural, and fun filled memories of your wedding day then we’re a perfect match :)

I prefer the moments of your day to unfold naturally so my approach is relaxed and low key - often the best photos are captured when you simply laugh, smile, and enjoy your day without interference!

Living right in Bowral I know all the best photo locations at our amazing local wedding venues. I am also a preferred supplier at most Southern Highlands venues and a well known and trusted member of the local wedding community.

With over 12 years experience and 500 weddings shot I have seen it all and this means you can be confident you are hiring a professional and reliable photographer capable of handling anything.

Being a boutique studio run by just myself and my wife you will receive a highly personalised service from start to finish. By only shooting a limited number of weddings per year I guarantee I will be totally committed to YOUR wedding.

I'd love to catch up and discuss your plans - happy to meet on zoom, on the phone or in person in Bowral :)



Questions and Answers

How long have you been a photographer?

McKay Wedding Photography

I shot my first wedding in 2006 and since then I have photographed over 500 weddings :)

What camera gear do you use? Do you have backup gear?

McKay Wedding Photography

I use Canon professional cameras and lenses using two cameras on the day with another as a backup plus multiple lenses.

The cameras have dual card slots so your photos are stored on separate cards.

At home I have backup hard drives and cloud based storage as well.

What is your photography style?

McKay Wedding Photography

It's a little hard to describe a style but when I really think about the words I would use the one that keeps coming up is "natural". In context this means I want the photos to "look natural" and for couples to be themselves, not to look stiff or uncomfortable. 

To look natural I think you need to simply have a good time, laugh, smile, and be relaxed about your day. This is where my personality and approach is so important as I do make people feel comfortable, they have a laugh, smile and relax..... this creates the mood for natural and beautiful photos.

Darryn is fantastic, we loved his photography style! Darryn was so accommodating to all our requests and enquiries in the lead up to the wedding. During the wedding he was so easy going, such a pleasure to have around. I would definitely recommend McKay Wedding Photography to any engaged couple. It was a great bonus that Darryn was very familiar with our venue, so he knew where to take us for the best shots. He was really laid back and easy to be around and he was fantastic including our dog in the photos as well. Thank you Darryn for all your work and effort!

Loved working with Darryn, he made the whole photo experience fun. He captured the mood of the day ( love and fun ) and the quality of the images is amazing. Very easy to work with and great value for money . Would not hesitate to recommend Mckay Photography.

Darryn was amazing! Everything from our meeting beforehand to making it fun on the day! His shots were amazing and he quickly turned around all our photo's so we could share with friends. We are so proud to have his photo's around our home.

Darren was fantastic to deal with on the day of our wedding. He was very relaxed and easy going, and took the most incredible photos. We received the photos really quickly after the wedding and were really happy with them.

McKay Photography provides a relaxed, natural and simplistic approach to wedding photography. Darryn is a pleasure to deal with, the pre-wedding /engagement shoot highly recommended to warm up. Always responds promptly when making contact. The result is beautiful timeless photography to keep for years to come, cannot recommend enough.

Darryn is AWESOME! He is so easy going which made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera. At our reception I barely even noticed he was there, he just floated around the room capturing shots of all our guests. With Darryn being a local to Bowral his knowledge of the area is definitely an added bonus as he knows some beautiful locations. We love our wedding photos and love the fact he listened to what we wanted. Can't thank you enough Darryn Highly recommend!

Superb photographer, a lovely man to work with before/during/after our special day and completely non-intrusive, highly recommended.

Darryn captured our day perfectly and was very easy to work with from the very beginning

Darryn is a star. We had our wedding and went for our honeymoon right after, almost not expecting to hear back from him for a while. Within a week we got an email from Darryn with a beautiful snapshot from the wedding. We came back after 3 weeks later and the pictures are already ready for viewing. Stark contrast with my experience when I had my Pre wedding photos taken, which arrived 7 months after. What's incredible is not the speed but the quality, and when quality is combined with speed, you'd wonder if Darryn's got a twin brother. Nowadays, people usually have two photographers, but Darryn does more than two people's job given the number of stunning shots we got. And by having him doing all the shoots, it also ensures consistency in quality and style. When we took a sneak peek of Darryn;s work on our wedding day before any retouching, we already loved his work. And may be that's the reason why he could turn around so quickly. Some spends too much time retouching, but Darryn makes sure it's good from the start! On the wedding date, we also enjoyed his company very much. He made everyone felt st ease and we had a fun time. Darryn also works with the guys from DnM, together they make a great team, taking lots of candid moments without getting in each other's way, everything just felt right!

If you need a photographer for a Southern Highlands wedding, look no further than Darren. We had a ball taking our photos and he captured some incredible shots; I know we'll be reliving the memories as we look on his photos for decades to come,
