Why choose a professional documentary photographer?
The moments are important.
Documentary-style, unposed photography is about something different than traditional posed portraiture. It is about creating images that reflect your values, your love, and your experience. It is about having someone there to create stunning images of all the important moments of your day, big or small, but not having the photography dominate or run the show. It’s your show – a documentary photographer is just there to witness it. Prue wants you to be able to fully relax and focus on the genuine, loving moments of your life, secure in the knowledge that an eagle-eyed professional has you covered, without you having to smile and pose for hours on end (or even minutes on end – in fact, you don’t have to stand and smile at her at all).
While most families and businesses own a digital camera and can take nice photographs, a professional documentary photographer uses their experience and knowledge to capture the essence of a moment and the experience of a memory. Prue uses her technical skills and her trained eye to bring out the best in her subjects and capture incredible images, without getting in your way or dominating your experience. Prue uses everything she has learned, developed and practiced to capture the emotion, personality, beauty and mood of those in front of her lens to get the shots you dream of having.
A client-photographer partnership is essential in creating excellent images. What you get with Prue Vickery is an open, modern and adventurous session with a photographer who loves to find new beauty to shoot, try new challenges and make her clients the happiest people on earth.

What clients say
We have done two shoots so far and my husband and I have already decided that our Christmas gift to each other every year is a photo shoot with Prue, to document our growing family. We love her work so much!
Thank you so much for our engagement photo shoot. You captured exactly what we were after and we look forward to framing them all. You have an amazing talent and we will recommend you to anyone that needs a photographer.
I have had the privilege of working with Prue both professionally, as a magazine editor, and personally, for my wedding. Her work is beautiful and has captured moments that I may have missed if it wasn’t for her great eye.
I cannot thank you enough for our amazing wedding photos! You knew exactly what I wanted without me having to say a word! You’re a genius.
As someone who is not used to being professionally photographed I was very nervous. Prue has a wonderful personality that put me at ease the moment she arrived which made the experience very relaxed and it was a great day that I’ll always remember.
Being first time parents, we really wanted to capture this beautiful chapter of our lives, and how better than through photographs? Prue made some fantastic suggestions to get our creative juices flowing and helped us decide what special moments we wanted to capture. Prue made us feel so comfortable and at ease and helped us open up – it was as if the camera wasn’t there!
Overall pregnancy is uncomfortable and not at all glamorous. When I saw the elegance and beauty that Prue was able to capture during this important stage of my life I was in awe and so grateful.
I found our shoot to be very laid back, which enabled everyones true personality to shine through and resulted in some stunning images which i can’t wait to display on my walls at home.
