About Us / Testimonials

Thanks for checking us out! Our team consists of Mark Tolson, Kara Mandina, Jarrod Harrison and Kavitha Mulligan.

We believe that the most important part of any wedding day is having fun and our main goal is to capture every emotion felt in a natural, unobtrusive fashion.

We take great pride in our work and have years of experience photographing weddings from humble backyard gatherings to extravagant and remote, week-long celebrations.

We photograph the day as it unfolds. Over the years we've learnt that timeless photos don't follow particular trends or styles, nor do we. If it happens on the day, we'll bend over backwards to get it, as it happened. In saying that, we don't want to bore you with our philosophy. If you like our photos, get in touch as we'd love to hear from you.

"Mark and Kara were great to deal with and helped make our wedding day a very memorable one. Leading up to the wedding, they were always quick to respond to our emails, and we had every confidence that they would do a great job. It was great to have them take photos and capture the key moments, and they helped bring to life the day without being too obtrusive or pushy like some photographers can be. Their relaxed and friendly nature helped make our day much more enjoyable on what can be one of the most stressful days of your life. After the wedding, they were quick to provide the photos to us, and everyone was really pleased with the results. Thank you once again, and we wish you both every success in the future."
