Sydney based award winning wedding photography and cinematography team, internationally renowned.

I have over 20 years experience doing photography work and find it incredibly rewarding. I get to photograph people at the happiest moments of their lives and honestly, I see myself more as a historian, than a photographer - because of the feedback I get, years after the wedding.

The best compliment I ever got on a wedding day was: "Hey, we barely saw you around, yet there are so many captured moments we never noticed happening. Thank you!"

My style of documenting weddings ensures that my work will tell the honest and spontaneous story of your day. Weddings these days don’t have to be formal and staged, and neither does the photography. You may say: "Hey Dan, can you just follow us around and document the story that unfolds naturally, and I will!"

The dress, shoes, flowers, cars, venue are all important, but will be forgotten over time, yet they will continue to live in your photographs. The memories we create, are the only thing which become more significant over the years.

  • 20 years of experience.
  • I am all about candid, documentary coverage. I am a storry-teller.

Questions and Answers

HOW LONG DO YOU STAY ON THE WEDDING DAY?

Dan Luke Photography & Films

As long as you let us! In other words, from the getting ready stage to the drunk-on-the-dance floor stage.

MY FRIEND TAKES NICE PHOTOS, CAN’T I JUST GET THEM TO DO IT?

Dan Luke Photography & Films

Well, yes you can, but ask yourself this: Do you want to put pressure on your friend or do you want them to enjoy your wedding with you? We’ve heard so many sad stories of friends or family members missing key moments, not being able to cope with dark rooms and changing weather, or worse still, getting too drunk to produce quality photography. Why take the risk with the most important day of your life? Chances are they will not have the relevant experience nor talent. If you need to save money, find savings elsewhere and leave your memories in the capable hands of a professional.

I’VE SEEN A PHOTOGRAPHER OFFERING ALL DAY COVERAGE FOR $1500 – WHY DO YOU COST AS MUCH AS YOU DO?

Dan Luke Photography & Films

Every photographer has the right to charge what they feel is an appropriate fee for their work on your wedding. Our rates are based on the amount of coverage you get with us, as well as the amount of preparation, passion and absolute hard work we will put into your images and albums after the wedding. Our pricing reflects the high quality of our work comparable to many photographers who charge less, it is a simple as that. You’re also paying for an internationally recognized, professional and experienced photographer, not an average one and an assistant. Looking at a photographer and thinking the price seems cheap? Do this quick calculation: Take the number of hours they are likely to work with you on the day, add another 3-4 days of processing time, then total it. Now divide that by the fee – would you work for that hourly rate? Do you need to consider album design and other products too? If the answer is no, then you may get what you pay for.

SO HOW DOES IT WORK ON THE DAY WITH YOUR BASE COVERAGE?

Dan Luke Photography & Films

For clients who require up to eight hours of wedding coverage, natural documentary style photographic reportage kicks off the day with bridal preparation, capturing details, the expectation and enthusiasm of the big day ahead. We can also cover groom prep if you’d like this. Throughout the wedding we’ll unobtrusively record your day through great distinctive photography. After the ceremony, we’ll go for a portrait session, making sure you have plenty of time to enjoy your own party. Our photographic coverage culminates shortly after your first dance, just long enough to capture some atmospheric dancing! We like to capture the essence of you, the sense of time and history that is your day with all your friends and family having a great time.

I AM HAVING A SMALL WEDDING, SHOULD I STILL HAVE PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHY DONE?

Dan Luke Photography & Films

Definitely! Take the pressure off a family member and book a photographer for the ceremony and reception drinks, then they can properly enjoy themselves. We do tailored packages at special rates for small weddings and short coverage.

We have just seen a preview of our wedding photos from Dan and we are loving what we are seeing! We choose Dan as we saw his online portfolio and admired the candid, documentary shots he had taken (myself and my husband were not too keen on posing too much). The photos definitely exceed our expectations as he captured so many beautiful and intimate moments that escaped us during the day. Dan was easy to deal with and we recommend him for anyone looking for something natural and special .

Dan’s photos captured the story of our special day in an artistic and creative way. What really sets him apart is his documentary style of photography. He has more content for people to view than anyone we have seen. Dan was also very professional through the whole experience

Our experience with Dan will be an unforgettable one. Dan offers more than just photography, but friendship as he carefully captures incredible moments throughout your special day. My husband and I are so blessed to have such special photos to share forever. Thank you Dan for capturing our day!

We chose Dan due to his portfolio and we were not disappointed! Dan Luke did an incredible job for our wedding. We have the most beautiful photos and videos and Dan was very helpful with the whole process spoke through what we wanted and even dealing with a difficult venues requirements. Both Dan and Phil made our day so easy knowing what we wanted and they sorted it all out. Not a moment was missed. I would never hesitate to recommend him if you are looking for professional photos and videos of your day look no further.

Dan photographed our wedding in October 2016 and captured our day beautifully. We really loved Dan's style of capturing natural moments, which seemed to tell the story of our day so well. Dan's professional, yet relaxed approach meant he was wonderful to deal with before, during and after the wedding.

8 Apr 2016

WOW! Dan was an absolutely amazing photographer. Extremely down to earth, but professional at the same time. He captured all of the incredible moments and I couldn't be happier with the final product. I feel like I am right back in my wedding day thanks to his brilliance!

Dan was the most perfect photographer. We picked up our wedding albums yesterday and we couldn't be happier. Dan does both candid and a posed shots and with lots of activity n shots. If you want a photographer that is amazing and will work around you, you must book Dan!

Dan did such a good job on the photos, I couldn't have wished for anything more, they look out of this world and I can't wait to get them mounted on the wall. Thanks so much Dan, you are a legend.
