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”

We spend ages looking at photographers and kept coming back to Lukes work. He was perfect from start to finish, he allowed us to relax and enjoy the day without the wedding be one long photoshoot which I really didn't want. If you want relaxed natural images I cant recommend him enough

Luke and his team were perfect at capturing the film and photos. We had been to so many weddings of friends where the bride and groom were literally having photos taken all day, for hours. We knew we didn't want that so looked around for a more natural approach. Not only are the photos and film beautiful but they dont look like everyone elses you see on instagram. We didn't have to do any cheesy poses and even our portrait shoot was captured naturally. He captured "us" smiling, laughing, with our family and friends. Thank you so much.

From the moment I exchanged a few questions to the delivery of the final product, my husband and I were blown away with Luke’s professionalisms and talent. Luke’s work tells a story like no other and captures the diamonds of the day to freeze them in time. That is exactly what I was looking for in a videographer as most brides will tell you how quickly the day goes by, my expectations were exceeded! I am so grateful to Luke for giving us such a beautiful keepsake to remember our day in all its glory! I would book him again in a heartbeat. Thank you Luke for documenting our day so perfectly and editing it into a masterpiece! Completely in love.

So many of our guests commented on your style; mingling without obtrusion to capture the vibe of the day. It was the same for Ruth and I – it was like being photographed by a friend.”

I would book Luke again in a heartbeat. We wanted the classic and romantic vibe that could be captured naturally. Most wedding photographers have the trend to dominate the whole day and we knew we didn't want that. The images are unbelievable, beautifully shot and composed. Luke is patient, relaxed and perfect to have around on your wedding day, I can't recommend him enough, thank you so much.
