'What can I say. The photos are beautiful. You really captured the evening. They are even more than what we expected. You definitely know your stuff!' Mary, June 2013
'We are delighted with the photos and really appreciate the memories that you have saved for us. Everybody commented on how great you were on the day. Thank you!' John, June 2013
Hi there, my name is Mara. I am a young, professional photographer based in Sydney. I specialise in photographing weddings, working in a candid style to gently capture natural moments in a clean and simple, yet beautiful way. I also value posed portraits of the bride and groom, bridal party, families etc. However, I keep these portraits natural and simple, with no cheesiness. No 'couple peek at each other from either side of a tree' or 'groom gazes into the distance where the bride is posed with her bouquet'.
My rates are low in comparison to many other photographers out there. This is because I am currently in my first year of photographing weddings. Lower cost does not mean lower quality - it is simply that I do not feel justified charging vast amounts when I don't have years of experience in photographing weddings... yet!
I am not one who likes being the centre of attention, which lends itself well to photographing weddings! I don't draw attention to myself, trying to blend in and stay out of the way as much as possible. I am professional, yet easy-going.
