Lovers of photography, adventure, light and love Trent and Jessie are one of the most cutest and talented couples we’ve ever met!

Photographing weddings continually takes them on incredible journeys to some of the most unique and beautiful places, challenging them to see light everywhere and allowing them to witness and capture some of the sweetest declarations of love between two people.

Taking a documentary style approach to photographing weddings, keepings things as natural and relaxed as possible so that each couple’s story can be told as honestly and beautifully as it deserves.

These guys live to capture people in love, their truest selves in their most honest moments on the day they commit to loving one another for the rest of their days.

“Being invited into the lives of others and asked to document one of the most significant and emotionally-charged days of their lives is such an incredible privilege.”

Born and raised on the Sunshine Coast’s Hinterland, Bonnie’s work is concerned with what lies in the peripheral vision of the everyday, observing the beauty and intrigue of the multi- faceted environment that surrounds us.

She draws inspiration by the combination of nature and the lens, exposing the wonder within nature. This fascination with shifts in perspectives, explains her attachment to the mediums of photography and video.

Both mediums are used to represent reality yet simultaneously have the ability to undermine this visual ‘reality’ by using in-camera techniques and minimal post-production. It’s all about appreciating the very real environment we live in and the magic of the optical instrument at capturing these elements in a unique but very real way.

Luke Going is an incredible wedding photographer who’s interest in photography began in the dark room at high school, almost 20 years ago.

After leaving school he realised his dream of working for National Geographic, traversing the globe, photographing the people of this planet.

Wedding photography proved to draw all the elements he loved in photography together – journalism, fashion, art and portraiture – and through this he formed his own incredible way of documenting these amazing events.

After beginning to shoot weddings on a regular basis Luke became more and more aware of what an incredible privilege it is to be witnessing such celebration, such devotion, and such emotion as regularly as he did.

“It is truly the greatest honour to photograph two best friends, surrounded by their most cherished loved ones, on the happiest day of their lives.”
