capturing wedding stories and love worldwide

Lauren + Vincent // Byron View Farm Wedding Photography, Byron Bay Wedding Photographer

“THANK YOU SO MUCH. We have finally had a chance to scroll through all our images and we are in love. We are amazed at some of the shots Brendan was able to capture. We recall exactly where the photos were taken place, but Brenden is truly an artist being able to see things the way he does.

Figtree were so professional and helpful with the entire process from the booking through to receiving our images. Brenden was so chilled and as a result, so were we. The day ran super smoothly and we are in love with our photos. We could not recommend the Figtree team highly enough.” – Lauren + Vincent

Tell us a little about your day…
Our day was nice and relaxed. We opted to have our photos taken before our ceremony which meant we got to see each other with our bridal party and enjoy the time together before all our guests arrived. We removed tradition and only stuck with typical ‘wedding’ parts that were truly important to us. I believe this really reflected who we are as a couple and ensured our guests had maximum fun on the day.

What was your fave part or moment from your day?
My favourite moment by far was the ‘first look’. I cannot stop thinking about how excited I was to show my husband the dress and to see his face for the first time on the day. Brenden was fantastic at organising us to meet back to back, holding hands. There was so much excitement being able to hold hands and hear each others voices before turning around to see each other with no one else around. This really took the nerves out of our wedding day so by the time the ceremony rolled around we were both super chilled and ready to be married.

Do you have any words of wisdom or tips for future couples?
You do you! Do things your own way and be a rebel. Really think about what is important to you and why. You will be so grateful on the day to be able to do what makes you light up as opposed to sitting through boring traditions.

Tell us a little about your day…
Our day was the perfect casual beach style wedding. We definitely wanted to pudh the relaxed vibe and i think that shows in the photos. All in all a PERFECT day surrounded by our closest friends and family.

What was your fave part or moment from your day?
My favourite moment was taking a minute to look around the reception and see all our loved ones having the time of their life.

Be true to yourselves and make that shine through on your wedding day.

“We adored Figtree! We fell in love with the photos when searching for a photographer. And when we met the team I couldn’t help but feel instantly at ease and like family around them. Made the day easy and Brenden was so chill and he made every part of the day clear to me as to what was going to happen. I really appreciated that. I also love the little wooden box and USB. So cute 🙂 thank you guys!!” – Kaitlin + Nathaniel

Tell us a little about your day…
We loved our day!! It was so special and really relaxing. I loved connecting with family and old friends. Best day of my life. Wouldn’t of had it any other way. So glad I found my handsome husband and best friend.

What was your fave part or moment from your day?
At the end of the night fire works flew up into the air. We had no idea about it. My husband’s mum had secretly done it all for us. We were so surprised and happy

Do you have any words of wisdom or tips for future couples?
Make sure the person you marry is your best friend. Your lives together will be filled with fun and laughter!

Sophie + Ben // Rainforest Gardens Mount Cotton Wedding Photography, Brisbane Wedding Photographer

“We can cross our hearts and say that investing in Figtree for our wedding photography was one of the best decisions we made when planning our day. Alice and Leigh in the office were a dream to communicate with meant the world as we never once stressed over the process or our photography. Our wonderful and incredibly talented photographers, Daniel & Bec were genuinely faultless! Neither of us got a chance to meet with them before the big day but that didn’t matter because they both fit in like old friends from the moment they stepped through the door. They captured every moment seamlessly and they made us both feel so natural and comfortable (no stiff, posed photos here!). We are absolutely in love with the shots you guys captured and can’t thank you enough xx” – Sophie + Ben

Tell us a little about your day…
Looking back, the feeling is almost indescribable….so much love! Everything that mattered turned out wonderfully, and things that didn’t go to plan – didn’t matter! From the morning’s preparations – drinking champagne and listening to old records, through to us catching a maxi-cab home with 4 of our friends – it was just fun, relaxed and so memorable!

What was your fave part or moment from your day?
So many!! Two standouts for me (Bride) – My dad’s beautiful face glowing with happiness as he walked through the apartment door, seeing me all ‘bridal’ for the first time. Totally priceless – and one of my favourite photos! And our first dance as husband and wife. Ben (Groom) refused to ‘ruin the magic’ of it by practicing whatsoever and so on the night we totally winged it. He pulled off some incredible moves, sweeping me off my feet (literally) and even after I had been smiling all day – looking back on photos, I have the biggest smile during our first dance.

Do you have any words of wisdom or tips for future couples?
Write your own vows!! Putting some of your own personality into the ceremony makes it fun for your guests and way more meaningful to the both you. Listening to each other’s vows for the first time at the altar is a really beautiful moment. Secondly, do everything your way! It’s your party, probably the biggest one you will throw in your life, it should reflect all the things in life you both love and share together.
