Based in Newcastle, documenting your day in an authentic, fun, relaxed way.

I'm Dearne or better known as Dea, a wedding photographer inspired by people and their stories in their natural surrounds.

My style is candid, fun and timeless. I want you to look back when you are wrinkly (let's face it, it's going to happen!), and that image takes you right back to the emotion. 

I am located in Newcastle, NSW, but am happy to travel. I know there is life outside of my beautiful town, so feel free to ask me for a quote no matter where you live.

Please visit my website and enjoy looking at some of the wonderful people I have had the pleasure of photographing. I would love the opportunity to tell your love story! 


Hey, I’m Dea (pronounced D...short for Dearne, but Siri thinks it’s pronounced Dern) I’m laid back, smile a lot, run into stuff a bit, think I’m funny sometimes and have been known to do the robot after a few drinks. I am passionate about people’s love stories and the happiness that a wedding day brings. I am also passionate about not forcing people to feel uncomfortable by holding unnatural poses and want everyone to always feel like the best version of themselves.

My style is all about capturing the real emotions of the day, in a non intrusive (and fun!), way. Some words to describe it would be candid, emotive, spirited, relaxed and creative!

I’ll mix up my documentary style with some classics (like family shots), and if you are feeling a bit awkward about what to do with a camera around, I will help direct you so you feel relaxed, to ensure we get the best out of your photo session.

I will! If you have booked a second photographer, I ensure that they are also an experienced wedding photographer. If for an unforeseen reason such as extreme illness I am unable to photograph your wedding, I will find a replacement that is of a similar style and equally as experienced.

I’m located in Newcastle. I work from the Wedding Collective NSW in Doran Street, Carrington where I have a collection of display books and prints that I can show you.

Yes. All images are edited to achieve a consistent look and stay true to my style. I don’t believe in making a person look completely different by photoshopping, however e.g. if someone has a pimple on their forehead that they would like removed, I will do little enhancements like this.

Final wedding collections are delivered within 6 weeks of your wedding date unless notified otherwise by Little Black Bow.

Dee was next level. She was so confident, funny, and overall a down to earth person. She made us feel so comfortable and easy to be ourselves. A person that I want to know more. We loved working with dee.

Dea was INCREDIBLE. So easy to get along with, a legend, and super chill. The photos look phenomenal. It didn’t even feel like we were posing for pics, we just had fun. Do yourselves a favour!
