BYRON BAY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER | GOLD COAST WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
Luke Oliver is a journalistic style wedding photographer, with a background in Documentary Wedding Photography and Film. He shoots weddings worldwide but is based on the Gold Coast and frequents Byron Bay. The highest attention to detail ensures your wedding isn’t just about hours of posing more about the story of your day. Luke shoots a combination of natural and reportage wedding photography, with a touch of fine-art thrown in for good measure.
“I believe in allowing couples to be themselves and I don’t adopt the common approach of many wedding photographers that orchestrate and direct the whole day. Once they do this the whole day becomes the photographer’s interpretation of the wedding. I won’t turn up to bridal preparations and ask you to pretend to touch your dress or put your earrings in. I’ll wait till you actually do it, and because of this, the images are natural and timeless, the emotions are real and honest. I specialize in weddings that have a focus on; beautiful environments, creative settings, great music, and a relaxed atmosphere”
Luke is always looking for real and soulful moments and is unobtrusive for candid shots, and a little bit interactive when it comes to couple portraits, engaging with people in order to make them feel at ease and get the best from them. Although Luke captures natural moments he still offers classical family portraits and a romantic portrait session.
“For me, it’s about observing and understanding people, the relationships they have, and anticipating that little precious moment or smile when it happens, from the moments no one saw the moments no one wants to forget”
