Candid Natural Wedding Photography Sydney | Sydney Wedding Photographer | Deb Boots

Hooray! You're getting married.

Hello & congrats.
I’m Deb Boots a Sydney wedding photographer.
I travel mostly throughout NSW & Queensland documenting love stories.

Photos keep our memories alive long after the time has passed.
I love to create images that are intimate, colourful and meaningful 
while shooting in a candidnatural wedding photography style.
Images that inspire me capture the genuine connection between two people in love,
along with the unique and beautiful relationships they have with their loved ones.
Just real moments captured – none of that fake stuff
or feeling like your on a three hour long photoshoot.

Editing adds a style aesthetic and mood to your photos, and is equally as important as the style of photography. My editing style is light, airy and colourful with the occasional moody edit. All images are delivered edited in colour with a selection of black & whites.

While most of my weddings are relaxed outdoor weddings with a hundred of your closest family and friends, I also photograph country weddings on properties and farms, beach weddings along the coast with waterfront views, backyard weddings and weddings in cool warehouse spaces. I also shoot pre-wedding photography, engagement sessions, elopements, weekday weddings and intimate gatherings.

Ive been a full-time professional wedding photographer for 8 years and have shot 250+ weddings.
My work has been featured on Junebug WeddingsWhite MagazineHello May, Polka Dot Bride, Easy WeddingsQueensland BridesTweed Coast Weddings and more.

I have been commissioned to photograph weddings throughout Australia – from weddings in Brisbane, regional & South East Queensland, Port Douglas in Far North Queensland, Tasmania, Blue Mountains, Byron Bay, Northern NSW, Central Coast, Newcastle, Southern Highlands, South Coast and Sydney. Destination weddings include Fiji and Thailand.

If you got this far, Im glad you found your way here.
Grab a coffee/tea (wine/beer) and get comfy while you look around.

Your wedding is one of life’s really big moments and choosing a photographer who will capture all the joyful moments and details should not be considered lightly.

“Thank you again for capturing our beautiful day – we were so grateful to have such a bubbly, pleasant and incredibly talented photographer as yourself capture each moment!”

"WARNING: if you want conventional, stiff and lifeless photos, Deb is not the photographer for you! :) My husband (still love saying that!) and I are so glad we chose Deb as our wedding photographer! From our first meeting, we knew she was ‘”the one.” Deb is warm, funny and so so friendly. My husband in particular is a bit camera-shy, so the fact she and her second-shooter Terri were able to allow us to relax, and capture so many wonderful moments of us is so special. We loved every single shot of our wedding photos – they really do tell a story of our day! She has a knack of capturing people’s emotions during the day, not just of us, but of our wonderful guests! Deb is not only a fantastic photographer, but also so generous – we moved overseas shortly after our wedding, but Deb still sent us our beautiful wooden box with the USB all the way to the UK! How is that for service?? So thank you once again, Deb, you are amazing :)"

“Deb’s beautiful photos speak for themselves in their jaw-dropping, moody, heartfelt beauty (even knowing this I still cried with joyful shock when I saw the slideshow of our stunning photos, and again when I looked through the full album), and yet her service is so much more than her spectacular images. I obviously can’t say enough about how much we love our wedding photos, but I think it’s so important that people know how wonderful Deb is to work with. She invited us into her home to meet and discuss ideas, she sent through timelines and suggestions for the day, she found locations that represented what we wanted in our photos, and she was a stealthy ninja-photographer on the day, capturing moments so fleeting and special without us even realising she had. The surprises continued when we got the gorgeous, wooden keepsake box with our USB full of photos! Deb, thank you so much for your hard work, your talent, your enthusiasm, your willingness to try something a little different, and most of all for the memories-turned-art you gave us. Two months on, we look at our photos every day, and we will enjoy your work for the rest of our lives. xx”

“We were all smitten with you Deb. Anyone who views our wedding photos always comments on how beautiful they are.
And any of my friends getting married get the same word of advice from me – Don’t put a budget on your photographer!
Your photos let you relive the day over and over, you’ll want them to be perfect.
We love our wedding photos, I still spend far to long flicking through each and every single one
(even though I’ve seen them a million times) 8 months after our wedding.
You can clearly see in every single photo how relaxed, happy and natural everyone felt.
It was such a beautiful day for so many reason, we were so lucky to have you capture it ALL.
We’ll always recommend you to any of our friends looking for a photographer.
Weddings are intimate and emotional, naturally brides and grooms develop a similar relationship with their photographer.
It’s the foundation of beautiful photos. The photos you caught of Dad and I are my last good memories of him.
‘In the moment’ you don’t always realize how beautiful and precious these photos are going to be.
I feel close to my Dad everytime I see them Deb, because they’re so beautiful and warming.
We’ll never be able to thank you enough.
You have a special place in our hearts Deb xxxxx”

A QUICK Q&A WITH PHOTOGRAPHER DEB BOOTS

What are couples surprised to learn?

Photography is not about the biggest camera in the room, it relies on a photographer having the ability to interact with people and make them feel comfortable. The best photos are never the ones where a person is directly looking at the camera, so don't feel you have to always look at the camera. My favourites are usually the unexpected candid moments, crazy dance floor moves or an intimate moment where the couple lose themselves in each other.

What is Deb Boots like on a wedding day?

Calm and patient, even in the most stressful situations I always have a smile on my face. But Im always strategising the next move to get the next best photo. I manage to blend in with the crowd and capture all the must-have photos plus surprising images the couple didn't expect. I believe being a good photographer is having the ability to talk to people of all ages and from different upbringings and cultures, so Im not afraid to approach strangers to talk too or give them directions, the more people see me as a person and not just the photographer, helps make them comfortable when it comes to taking their photo. I never want the focus to be on me or disrupt the natural flow, which is why my approach to wedding photography is unobtrusive for most of the event.

What do your couples love most about your approach?

Most couples say they are awkward in front of the camera and don't like posed photos. What my couples love most about my approach, is that I document the story in a natural way so they never feel like heaps of directions are being fired off at them to follow. Its all about having fun while telling the story.

What experience do your couples walk away with?

I spend a good amount of time with my couples at their wedding so its important we get along and they trust me and the choices I make in regards to photography. Ive been a full-time wedding photographer since 2010 and shot close to 300 weddings so that gives me a good insight into a real wedding, along with lots of experience with brides, grooms and their guests. During the wedding planning I love getting to know my couples, even if its just being friends on social media, it gives me an insight into what they are like and what's important to them. I see it this way, if we like each other as people and its more than just a business relationship, then Im equally invested in capturing their love story as they are and becomes important for me to do a great job for my couple.

What advice would you give couples planning a wedding?

Do your wedding your way! Don't feel the need to follow traditions or trends, let your day tell your unique love story. Decide how you want to celebrate getting married and stick to your plans. So many people will offer advice, and it's fine to listen, but it's your wedding so stick to your decisions. Learn to be good at making decisions, tick each task off your to-do list and move on to the next task, it will make planning your wedding relatively stress-free. I think good advice is, hope for the best conditions but prepare for the worst to avoid disappointment. Giving your suppliers creative freedom because that is when they do their best work. Its not about all the fluff, but the people you spend your time with.

What is your advice for getting the best wedding photos?

Talk to your photographer about timings, locations and lighting before locking in any timings, especially your ceremony time. Some venues or celebrants might schedule the ceremony time for the best light, when in fact you want to be having your bridal party photos and couples portraits during the best light. Usually the best light of the day, often referred to as Golden Hour, is the 45-60 minutes before sunset and 15 minutes after sunset. Light is the key to great photos, whether that be natural light or artificial light. An experienced photographer will be able to creatively use light to make interesting photos in most situations. When choosing a place to get ready, consider booking AirBNB properties or boutique hotels as the decor often has more stylish interiors and less clutter, which will look better in the background of your photos.

Any final thoughts?

I recommend to all my couples to allow a portion, usually the last half, of their bridal party photo session for just the two of them to have some time together. Naturally I will be capturing photos during the couples alone-time as its an opportunity for those more romantic photos without your bridal party watching on. There is no other time where the couple actually get to spend time together, so its the perfect opportunity for them to take some time out and connect on a more intimate level.
