CANDID, NATURAL WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY

Hello & welcome,
I’m Deb Boots a wedding photographer based in Sydney NSW.
I travel throughout NSW & Queensland documenting love stories.

Photos keep our memories alive long after the time has passed.
That’s why I strive to create images that are timeless, colourful
and meaningful while shooting in a candidnatural photography style.
Images that inspire me are romantic, creative and authentic
that capture the genuine connection between two people in love,
along with their guests and the spirit of the wedding day.

While most of my weddings are relaxed outdoor garden parties
with a hundred of your closest family and friends,
I also photograph elopements, weekday weddings and intimate gatherings.

If you don’t like posey cringe-worthy wedding photos, Im glad you found your way here.
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.

My approach to wedding photography is friendly and unobtrusive to create a relaxed environment.
For the most part capturing candid moments
while crafting intimate portraits, capturing real heartfelt moments
and all the details that makes your wedding uniquely yours.

I have been commissioned to photograph weddings throughout Australia.
From weddings in Brisbane, regional & South East Queensland, Port Douglas,
Tasmania, Blue Mountains, Byron Bay, Northern NSW and Sydney.
Destination weddings include Fiji and Thailand.

Thanks for stopping by. Grab a coffee/tea (wine/beer) and get comfy while you look around.

"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 DEB BOOTS

What are couples surprised to learn?

How calm and patient I am even in the most stressful situations, I always have a smile on my face. Quietly between you and me its just a facade because deep down Im strategising the next move to get the next best photo .. haha. I manage to blend in with the crowd and capture all the must-have photos plus surprising images they didn't expect. 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 day. 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 good belly-laugh photo, crazy dance floor moves or intimate photos of a couple so into each other.

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 day 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 of the day.

What experience do your couples walk away with?

I spend a good amount of time with my couples on their wedding day 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 wedding day, 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 their day 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 at the end of the day 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. On the day, 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. At the end of the day, 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 of the day, 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 and its an opportunity for those more intimate romantic photos without your bridal party watching on. There is no other time on a wedding day where the couple actually get to spend time together so its a great opportunity for them to take some time out and connect.
