Patina are photography wizards!

Michelle managed to capture the love and fun and emotion of our day just perfectly. Looking back at the photos gave us the chance to live through the whole day again. And it was so special for our families and friends overseas to have that chance when they couldn't be with us.

Thank you so much for the excitement and empathy you showed on our day and to both of you for going above and beyond what we expected. 100% recommend Patina for gorgeous stylish photos and essentially having another mate at your wedding :)

Hemi & Michelle are absolutely the best!

If you want amazing photos, from amazing people, who really boost the mood of your day and make you feel comfortable in front of the camera, then look no further. [We] couldn't recommend them any more.

Hamish + Lucy

THE VERY BEST. We absolutely loved how well they captured the special moments from our wedding day.

Hemi captured the joy, laughter, happy tears and the sass of the flower girls so well. These guys would come highly recommended from us. Thanks for making the whole process incredibly easy and enjoyable.
