Tell us a little about yourself?

We established VLA in 2010 and through photography and film we have told the stories of over 400 weddings. We both have Bachelor of Arts Degrees with honours in photography and have 35 years combined experience. 

We have a baby boy called Will and a dog called Myrtle. We love Family days, world exploring, dog walking, 1975, Paul Simon + Bon Iver listening, home decorating, restaurant selecting, Netflix binging and Ikea.

How would you describe your wedding photography style and what makes you unique?

Our wedding photography is all about capturing the fun and emotion throughout the entirety of the day.  We love storytelling. We photograph in an engaging and stylish way, whilst working discreetly and professionally. 

We believe our uniqueness is expressed through our people skills and our creative education. We know how to make people feel comfortable in front of the camera and our degrees have given us the ability to produce an exceptionally high standard of work.

How would you describe your working style? Will you have an assistant on the day?

Our working style is personable, relaxed and fun, whilst being calm and unobtrusive. Couples are often overwhelmed but what we have captured during their wedding day, whilst being so informal.

With our professional qualifications and experience of photographing and filming weddings we capture all the photography ourselves.

What type of equipment do you use?

We use Canon and Sony cameras and lenses. For wedding photography we shoot with Canon 5D’s, L-Series lenses and Canon flashguns.

Do you shoot in RAW? What format with the final version be in?

We shoot in RAW & JPG. All high resolution finished and processed photographs are delivered to the client in JPG.

What can you offer couples? Can they customise the package with you?

Yes, couples can customise their package with us. We have created different photography packages and pricing structures to suit couples’ budgets and requirements, however they are also adaptable if couples need to adjust timings/pricing/media.

What parts of the day do you usually capture?

The entire day.

How long does it take you to edit?

With photography 3 days. We are perfectionists.

How long will the final version usually arrive?

Depending on the time of year between 2-8 weeks to receive your final photography and slideshow.

How far in advance should couples book you?

We have couples book 3 years in advance but there’s no particular time to book. We capture around 50 weddings per year and are unavailable for twice that. What we recommend to couples is if you like our work, and would like to book with us, it’s best to ‘Save the Date’ and confirm the package later.

What information do you need from the couple before the wedding day?

We have created a booking form that highlights information regarding the wedding day. It gives couples the opportunity to educate us in terms of their style and must have photographs. It also asks for timings, venue locations and names. We have been praised by Towergate Camerasure for our in depth client compatibility.

What are your favourite trends?

Progression is our favourite trend. We always love educating ourselves, pushing boundaries, whilst knowing what’s timeless. 

What are you expecting to see become more mainstream/more common in the next year or two?

Regarding the style of videography and photography we’re not seeing that there will be much change or more mainstream styles. We believe social media is where the change will be. Wedding media will be more ‘bite sized’ and accessible. Short videos will be extremely popular.
