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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

Almost anywhere. We like to shoot somewhere different and a place that means something to you but we can also suggest places if you’re happy to go with our ideas. For out-of-Sydney locations we may ask for travel expenses to be covered.

Yes, I'm a bit obsessed and have multiple camera bodies and most lenses. Your images are backed up automatically, as I shoot, and then again at home and again, and again…

We have Public Liability insurance to the value of $20 million. Our equipment is fully insured! We are award winning members of WPJA – Wedding Photojournalist Association and WEP - World Elite Photographers, which is all invitation only groups of the highest quality photographers in the AU and the world!

Having been in the wedding industry a number of years we’re lucky enough to have a tight knit group of similar photographers, who would be our first port of call in the event of disaster. We then have other emergency cover and back up groups of photographers whom we could call upon. The wedding photography industry is a great place and everyone is willing to help out if disaster strikes. This has never happened though in over ten years of shooting weddings

It’s not a problem as such if you book a photographer who knows what they are doing, but we definitely wouldn’t recommend a time later than 2pm if you want to have group shots outside in the light. Make sure you ask any photographer you are considering to show you a full winter wedding they have shot; it is very different to shooting in the summer. We still shoot mostly natural light in winter but some photographers will up their use of flash, something to check if you find it intrusive.

Of course, we will tailor a package for all our clients, so tell us your plans and we will give you a custom-made quote. We understand you may feel having photos just up to the wedding breakfast is enough (although not half as fun!) but we are also a rare breed of photographer who will stay until the very end of the night. Just get in touch if you would like to know more.

Well if you choose DLP you can reassure them that I’m very quiet during the ceremony and also that I never use flash in the church.

This really isn’t a problem at all. Choosing a photographer who hasn’t been to a venue can be a good thing, they will see the venue with fresh eyes, giving you a set of unique wedding photos. That works for me

Not at all. We think there is still a place for group photos at a wedding, as it tends to be one of the very few times that families get together.

If you’re thinking about photography, then book now! We generally take bookings 12-18 months in advance and shoot a limited number of weddings a year, but it’s not out of the question for us to accept a booking with just a few days’ notice, if we are available. We will send you our contract and take a $400 booking fee. The balance is then required for payment 2 weeks before the wedding. Most people tend to book in their venue, followed quite soon by their photographer, as good photographers do get booked up early.

We wouldn’t recommend it. Most clients book us between 12 and 18 months in advance, and some have signed us up two years in advance. Remember we can only ever shoot one wedding a day and once we are booked we are booked, so don’t miss out. By booking early you also make yourself immune from any price rises, as we always honor your original quote. Saying this, do always check your date, even if it is only a few months away as you never know!

Whilst you’re enjoying yourselves on honeymoon, we’ll be attached to our computers tweaking your images to bring them to their full glory and show them to you on our blog. We always love the idea of them waiting for you on your return from honeymoon and will strive to achieve this, but realistically in busy periods we can take up to four weeks. But you wouldn’t want us to rush them right?

We shoot in RAW format, then we individually process and edit every single successful image from your wedding. Di does an excellent job there. This involves creating unique color effects, converting images to attractive black & white, and we will do blemish removal.

Yes, and if you change your mind and decide to have an album, you can always add it later, also getting it in the package is always more affordable. Think about all those holiday/birthday photos on your pc. How often do you look at them? If you go for the disk only chances are you’ll make a few prints and then they’ll sit in a drawer or on your computer, and you’ll never look at them enough. With an album you have a physical, tangible thing to look at with ease, to touch and remember, easily accessible to show people how fantastic you looked. We also favor coffee table books, which can hold many images, which really allows us to tell your story and doesn’t feel like a big bulky thing that has to live underneath your bed.

After you’ve selected which images you’d like in the album we will design the layout in the best way possible to tell the story of the day. We will email you a proof to look over and approve your album for printing.

We’re professional wedding photographers, so if we’re not prepared for the rain who will be! Embrace the weather and you never know what you’re going to get :) We’ll never drag your guests out into the elements but for the two of you it’s worth a little water for some epic images – rain can make for great photo opportunities!

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.

What are some must-have wedding shots?

I want to have my wedding published and to maximise my chances I was wondering what are some must-have wedding shots that we need to have taken on the day.

Dan Luke Photography & Films

Hi Emma,

The best way is to have a photographer who can tell the story of your day, by documenting everything from getting ready shots, the look on your loved ones when they see you for the first time, ceremony setting and emotions that unfold, details (both ceremony and reception) and fun on the dance floor. When the story is there, all I need to do as a photographer is point the publisher to the blog post and let them choose featured images.

My best
