Absolutely! We are no strangers to travel, and love capturing moments wherever they unfold. We travel Australia wide and internationally, bringing our passion for photography to diverse locations.

Please note that a travel fee applies for locations outside our base. Let us know where your story unfolds, and we'll make it happen! 

Yes, indeed! Drone footage is included in all of our full-day packages, adding a unique perspective to your visual story. However, it's worth noting that the inclusion of drone footage is weather and location-dependent to ensure the best possible results.

Short answer - Yes!
Long answer - Absolutely! Adding 35mm film to your package is more than just a popular choice; it brings a unique, one-of-a-kind element to your gallery! We use an authentic film camera to capture classic moments with a vintage touch. The result is a timeless and authentic feel that sets your photos apart. It’s a wonderful way to infuse a bit of nostalgia and artistic flair into your memories. 

Working with Aesthete Photography is an experience centred around you and your unique moments. Our laid-back and chill approach ensures a comfortable atmosphere, guiding you through couple photos to capture the very best moments. As a cohesive and talented small team, we seamlessly balance assertiveness for family photos and collaborate effortlessly with other vendors.

Our priority is to make you feel at ease and confident, with a touch of humour. During the cocktail/reception, we blend into the background, capturing both important moments and candid joy.

We understand that everyone has their own edit preference, and we want your memories to reflect your style. That's why we offer three distinct edit styles. Our personal favourite is 'Moody,' which creates intimate, warm photos – it's our most popular choice. 'Film' emphasises greens, delivering a bright and punchy edit that can bring a vintage feel to your photos. For those who prefer a more natural look, 'Natural' brightens images while staying true to the raw essence straight from the camera. Your forever memories, your preferred edit style!

Magical! Aesthete Photography was the perfect pick for us. Not only did the photos (700+) come back amazing, our guests couldn't sing enough praises for the photographer Lisa. We highly recommend their services for any occasion.

July 2023

I could not fault Aesthete. From my initial communication with Max right up to the finished product, these guys are so professional and down to earth. My husband and I were on a pretty tight budget and we were so happy with the package we received which didn't break the bank. Our wedding team consisted of Gabby, Jazmyn and Pat who did an incredible job and were so fun to work with. They have such a great eye for detail and locations. I would have no trouble recommending Aesthete! Thanks guys!

May 2023

I have never felt so beautiful in a group of photos as I did in the wedding photos Aesthetic Film and Photography took of myself and Brent on the day of our wedding. When looking for a photographer for your wedding, you really want someone you could spend the whole day with. And that’s how I felt about Max and his team (Pat). They were such fun to be around and made us laugh. So many beautifully candid shots were taken as a result. These guys have mastered their craft. I would 100% recommend Aesthetic Film and Photography to all my friends and family.

January 2024

We were extremely happy with Aesthete! We had the hybrid film and photography package with one photographer, Max. He was great and obviously very experienced. In the lead up to the wedding, we received some digital content from Aesthete asking us to choose some music we liked and also the editing style that we liked. We appreciated having these options to personalise the result to what suited us best! We were so happy with the result of the photos and would definitely recommend them to others!

Bec M.

They are very calm, kind and comfortable in what they do. Max and Patrick work extremely well as a team, they capture every moment so effortlessly and make you feel comfortable. Their attention to detail and capturing the elements and real beauty of your wedding location is impeccable. This team is honestly top tier, could not recommend them more
