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! 


Questions and Answers

question has been submitted to Easy Weddings for review.

Something went wrong, please try again soon.

How would you describe your style?

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.

Will you be my photographer on the day?

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.

Where are you located?

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.

Do you edit your images?

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.

How long until I get my final images back after the wedding?

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

I found Little Black Bow on Instagram and fell in love with her style of photography. Alex is not a fan of photos and we needed someone he was comfortable with on the day. As soon as we met Dea, there were no more questions about it – she was the one for us! Dea captured stunning, candid photos that we love and cherish. Her photography is second to none and we are so grateful to have found her. Dea has a laidback and friendly nature and was brilliant to work with. She is extremely talented and has an eye for photography. The wedding day came and went so quickly but the photos Dea took will last forever.

We all loved working with Dearne. Not only does she do beautiful photography in the vintage style that we wanted for our wedding, but she is lots of fun to hang out with which made us feel relaxed and enjoy the process. Highly recommended!

Dea was amazing! Even my guests commented about how relaxed she made the environment! Can’t wait to see the rest of the photo because I know they’ll be amazing!
