Unposed christening photography – Our Lady of Rosary Parish

Every christening is a special event in a family’s life, and every one deserves to be celebrated and captured. I love photographing christenings because they’re all about love - love of family, love of church, love of friends, love of ceremony. And then sometimes, love of a good party. This christening took place in a location new to me - Our Lady of the Rosary parish church in Kellyville, in the Hills District of Sydney. This was my first time shooting in a Catholic church in the Hills area, and let me tell you - it did not disappoint. Our

Prue Vickery Photography – Unconventional Wedding Locations

Weddings come in all shapes and sizes, a fact that I love to celebrate. While I’ve photographed my wonderful share of big white church weddings, I specialise in smaller, offbeat weddings that sometimes walk a little on the wild side. I just love the idea that a wedding can be so many different things, and can express a couple’s loves and tastes so uniquely. And sometimes these weddings take place in places that you’d never imagine! Here are some of the interesting wedding locations I have had the privilege of shooting. It might give you something to think about when

Unposed photography Sydney – NEW metal prints

Why have you chosen to have a session with me? I’m guessing it’s because you love unposed photography, and you want some beautiful documentary images to capture your life. Or maybe it’s because you know that I’m a dedicated professional with years of experience in photography under my belt, and you like to work with people you can trust. Or maybe it’s because you know that you’re not just going to get digital files thrown at you, to be lost in the vortex of your computer forever, and you love that I give you more than that, with my archival

Unposed baby photography – a moment in bed

Sometimes, it's the quiet moments that get you the most. The moments between one child and another, in the most unstyled, unfashionable, uncontrived of places. Sometimes it's these moments that speak to the human experience and the force of relationships, between even the littlest members of our families. Sometimes it's a tiny hand, a giggling raspberry blown on a soft tummy, the quiet of an afternoon rest, the sweetness of a little smile, the clasping of hands which shows the strongest of bonds. Sometimes it's those things I love the most about documentary photography. The way it has the ability to

Documentary christening photography – Stefan

Little Stefan was christening in the Macedonian Orthodox Church of the Resurrection in Rockdale, and was followed by a stunning reception at Conca D'oro in Riverwood. I'd never shot in this particular Catholic church before, but was delighted to discover that it is charming, moody and beautifully charismatic. Like all Catholic baptisms, this one was full of beautiful ceremony and tradition, but this was a first for me as it was my first time experiencing a christening performed entirely in Macedonian. It was wonderful. My documentary-style photography and emphasis on relaxed unposed portraiture is really well suited for these kind of important cultural

Unposed wedding photography – Kate and Seb in the Hunter Valley

I consider myself the luckiest girl in the world that I get to photograph the wedding of interesting people. It really is a gift - they are trusting you with the documentation of one of the most special days of their lives, and I'm especially lucky because the people I get to photograph are always special, fascinating specimens of humankind. They're always a bit different, a bit kooky, a bit more sparkly than the rest of us regular joes. And this wedding was black tie, too, which made it that extra bit unusual. Kate and Sebastian were married at the Sisters

Unposed maternity photography – Nikki in the Hunter Valley

What do you do when you manage a horse stud, your whole life is horses, and you're beautifully pregnant? Why, you have your documentary maternity session out in the field, where your heart lies, of course. When people think of maternity photographs with horses, they might think of women in long flowing gowns over their bump, and flower crowns adorning their locks, standing in a field at sunset embracing a white horse. At least, that's the only kind of equine-related maternity photography I've seen around lately, and it's all the rage. And don't get me wrong, it's beautiful! But it's not for everyone. I

Documentary christening photography – Dimitri in Leichhardt

There's not much like I like better than a gorgeous Greek Orthodox christening in Sydney. This baptism took place at St Gerasimos Greek Orthodox Church in Leichhardt, and the church was filled with family and friends there to celebrate little Dimitri's big day. I just love the love that is evident at christenings - everyone is there for the same purpose, and there are hugs and kisses and cuddles galore. My documentary approach to coverage is ideal for occasions like this, where an eagle eye and a silent foot is a pre-requisite, and where people don't want to be disturbed in the moment or

Unposed wedding photography – Emma and Dan in Kangaroo Valley

I wish I could show you every single one of the photographs from this beautiful wedding, but we'd be here all day, frankly, and I really don't think my bandwidth would cope. Emma and Dan were married in the Kangaroo Valley at a little farmstay called Broger's End. This gorgeous location is relatively secluded in the valley, surrounded by paddocks and trees and feeling for all the world like a country wedding paradise. The short, intimate ceremony was held in the dairy garden and the beautiful reception in the huge converted shed, with a barbecue buffet and the most amazing cake you've

Unposed photographer: The best things about having a session with your baby at home

You're having a baby. Maybe it's your first, maybe it's your second, or maybe it's your eighth (in which case, you are a superhero), and this is an exciting, scary, and truly unique moment in your life. You're considering having some photographs taken of your new darling baby and the newest iteration of your family, and you want something real, something truly unique, something that no one else has, and you don't want to have to travel to the ends of the earth to have it. Welcome, friend. You've come to the right place. Documentary photography in your very own home might be perfect

Unposed family photography – Toby at home

I love loyal repeat clients. I have a lot of them. The benefits of cultivating a relationship with a client over multiple sessions and many years is that I know what they love, I know what they're looking for, and I know their family dynamics and personalities, so I can give them the absolute best images possible every time. I know what's meaningful to them. In this case, I know Emily, Graham and Toby, because this is my SIXTH session with them. I photographed (get ready for it) their engagement session, their wedding, Emily's pregnancy, the days straight after their son was born, their beautiful

Unposed wedding photography in Hunter Valley – Liz and Tom

Are these guys just perfection, or what? Liz and Tom were married at the Starline Alpaca Farm Stay in Broke, NSW. They are both vegetarians and are enormous animal lovers, so it seemed only right for them to be married on a farm surrounded by beautiful (if a little feisty) animals. The Hunter Valley region is notorious for its beautiful scenery, lovely people and great food, and it certainly delivered this for them with their lovely outdoor wedding under the gums and wonderful vegetarian buffet reception in the intimate, light-filled reception hall. What I loved most about this wedding was the simplicity and

Unposed newborn photography – Willow at home

Remember Shannon from this incredibly popular documentary maternity session I posted? My website almost broke with the weight of all the traffic that flooded in to look at those images, and really, I can't blame you. She was like a heavenly pregnant supermodel, flown in from the skies above. To capture her pregnancy was really a pure joy - it stands as one of my absolutely favourite sessions from 2015, a year in which I had dozens upon dozens of incredible jobs, so I feel like that should tell you how much I enjoyed myself while shooting and editing it. Well,
