Bird & Bee Studio


Bird & Bee Studio is a creative wedding and photography studio. They specialise in wedding photography for the Sydney, Illawarra, Southern Highlands, Hunter Valley, South Coast, Sutherland Shire, Cronulla and beyond. Bird & Bee are a dynamic, creative studio specialising in both wedding photography and videography.


Their favourite wedding from last year (among many), was Casey and Rebecca's special celebration that took place in Mosman. The images from this wedding are stunning and Bird & Bee describe nature of the day below…


Casey and Rebecca’s wedding was one of my favourites this season as they were a super fun and creative couple who organised a beautiful day for their family and friends. After a morning ceremony at Clifton Gardens Reserve in Chowder Bay, Mosman, they enjoyed a champagne brunch, including amazing pastries and fruit.

During the ceremony, everyone shared a toast with a shot of tequila, in honor of the first time Casey and Rebecca met when they enjoyed quite a bit of tequila. Granted it was early, but the toast kicked off a great day of partying and friendship.

Afterwards everyone was transported to the Opera house steps via a fun water taxi ride for an intimate lunch at ARIA restaurant. A Sydney wedding really makes the most of the location when you take a cruise on the beautiful harbour. 


We had the chance to do some creative pictures around the Opera house area. I love photographing simple, abstract shapes and natural, romantic images of the couple that they are proud to display on their wall.

Essence Weddings


Lovely words from Sydney-based photographer Essence Wedding Photography...

Wedding photography is more than a business for me, it’s personal. I share a unique bond with the bride and groom on what is one of their most important days of their lives. For me, I cannot stress enough the balance of the relationship.

All my weddings are special to me and I find it difficult to select just one to highlight. From my library this year I have had many highlights, so many special people and so many wonderful memories. Each one different from the other, and all with the same outcome... happy faces.

Weddings are an amazing affair. Everything about the wedding is always elegant. From the dress to shoes, the hotel where they prepare, right down to the table settings. Everything is carefully thought out.

Spending the time to get to know a bride and groom makes our day together quite relaxing and enjoyable. We find the balance of creating some amazing images and some quiet time for the newlyweds to spend together, gleefully chatting about the events that just unfolded. I love my job.
