heartfelt colourful authentic love stories
I am so pleased you stopped by. Make yourself comfortable while you look around.
Hi, Im Deb Boots, a wedding photographer based in Sydney servicing the east coast of Australia. I document heartfelt colourful and authentic love stories throughout Australia for fun-loving couples on that adventure of being in love with your best friend.
I have spent the last seven years shooting weddings mostly in and around Brisbane, and after 10 years in Brisbane, I have returned home to Sydney and can’t wait to photograph Sydney brides and grooms. Don’t worry Queenslanders, I will still be photographing weddings up north.
More than a wedding, marriage is the beginning of a new chapter in your love story. A celebration of finding your forever partner. This one day is full of emotions and moments that marks the love between you and your partner. The connections with your friends and family are equally important and a big part of your new adventure. These moments should not only be celebrated but beautifully captured in pictures.
Being asked to join a couple to document their special day is something I take onboard with responsibility but most of all excitement. My friendly approach comes with no awkward posing. I am genuinely invested in you having an awesome celebration and it not turning into a photoshoot. Im there to capture an honest reflection of your wedding day, including all the fun and laughter, right through to those crazy dance floor moves! As well as all the pretty details that help set the scene.
Hang around and get to know your photographer, explore some love stories to get a feel for how I photograph couples and a bigger picture into how I document a full wedding day. My favourite photos are featured in my portfolio – weddings and engagements and you can check out recent weddings on the blog.

LIFESTYLE & DOCUMENTARY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY FOR ROMANTICS AT HEART
I strive to create images that are heartfelt with soul. That are romantic, creative and most of all honest. To capture the real, genuine moments and spirit of your wedding day.
My style is a blend of documentary wedding photography and beautiful portraits of the bride and groom. Defined as Lifestyle wedding photography – more than just candid photos. Honest raw emotions and fleeting moments, yet done so with some direction and style – storytelling at it’s best.
The documentary style focuses on candid, unposed and fleeting moments. The portraits are taken utilising natural light to create a mix of romantic, creative and natural storytelling images. I do provide some direction during the portraits; how to stand and where to place hands and so forth, but otherwise its about capturing the couple’s genuine connection.
WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY PACKAGES & PRICING
SYDNEY • BYRON BAY • BRISBANE
I have a few options in my wedding photography packages with the most popular package including full day coverage. All day photography coverage begins with the bride and groom getting ready through to the end of the celebrations to capture all those crazy dance moves and the newlyweds departing under a trail of sparklers. Packages are fixed prices which is peace of mind for your wedding budget. Most couples invest between $2500-3200 for digital wedding photography packages and between $4500-6000 for wedding photography & album packages. All the wedding photography pricing information can be found on the Wedding Photography Packages & Prices page.
Photographs are meant to be printed, and stories are meant to be shared. Curating your love story into a beautiful wedding album is one of my favourite parts after the wedding day has passed. The wedding album is a professional quality fine art album. Pages have a beautiful matte finish and covers that can be customised. For more information about the wedding albums …
Searching for a wedding photographer can be stressful and overwhelming, so I have answered many questions on the FAQs page.
My aim is to always deliver beyond the client’s expectations. Most importantly, I want to provide a friendly and exceptional experience for the couple, their families and guests. With that in mind, I only accept a limited amount of weddings each year so I can best serve each couple.
KIND WORDS FROM MY LOVELY COUPLES
“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”

EXPERIENCED PROFESSIONAL WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
I have been a full-time professional wedding photographer for over 7 years and was named by The Wedding Club as one of The 10 Best Wedding Photographers in Brisbane. I am a member of the international professional photography organisation Fearless Photographers.
I’ve had work featured on several Australian wedding blogs including White Magazine, Hello May, The Lane, Polka Dot Bride, Style Me Pretty Australia, Queensland Brides, Brisbane Wedding Weekly and The Bride’s Tree as well as the international wedding blog Junebug Weddings.
TRAVEL & DESTINATION WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY
What’s the deal with travel? As a born and bred Sydney girl that currently calls Brisbane and Sydney home, I travel between Brisbane and Sydney regularly. That means travel charges don’t come into play unless the wedding venue is 2+ hours drive outside the cities of Brisbane or Sydney, or I need to jump on a plane. If you are getting married outside of these areas, please ask about my reasonable travel rates. Let’s be honest, I’d travel just about anywhere, whether it be a road trip or jumping on a plane, to be there to photograph a couple in love. That might be in rural Australia with beautiful countryside and landscapes as the backdrop or an urban warehouse with laneways and street art. I have a travel wish list, so let’s talk about me photographing your destination wedding!
GET READY FOR YOUR NEXT BIG ADVENTURE … YOUR LOVE STORY!
Let’s go on an adventure together. Whether it’s exploring a forest, wandering through a country field, hanging out in a graffiti-lined laneway, at your favourite cafe or with your furry friends at your side. You only get this moment in time once, so let’s create real, authentic memories of your journey together.
That’s me out of the way, and now it’s all about the two of you. I would love to chat with you about your plans to get hitched, no matter where you are getting married.
By far the best way to see if we are a good match, is for us to have a chat either over the phone or in person. Meetings are super casual and a chance for us to get to know one another better, and where you have an opportunity to ask as many questions as you like. Say hello or call me on 0419 043030.
