Same Love Photography Services & Products
We cater for a range of photographic and videography services ranging from same sex wedding ceremonies, couples and lgbtiq family portraits, event photography and for small business.
We absolutely adore photographing the union between gay and lesbian couples. We can stand proudly behind this statement as even before Marriage Equality, although considered civil ceremonies, we captured many same sex weddings in various states of Australia, in New Zealand and Vietnam since 2012. We acknowledge and believe that a same sex wedding is not just a celebration of two people in love. It is also a celebration of our pride and the journey we have all taken to reach this monumental day of legal recognition. Some of us grew up thinking it was never going to be an option in our lifetime and now that it is, it’s simply uplifting. Whether you are having a small intimate affair or a party of hundreds, we would like to share this special day with you.
Typically, we’d arrange an in person catch up or if this is not possible, a Facetime or Zoom meeting is becoming quite common due to distance and time constraints. It is here, we would exchange plans, ideas, logistical dilemmas/solutions, help looking into vendors etc along with simply having a relaxed conversation so that you can feel comfortable and confident with the person who is going to be an integral part of your day. Our packages are flexible and can be tailored to suit what you and your day requires. A draft runsheet or call sheet will be created to help you plan and know when and what we will be doing for you in creating memories you will hold onto.
Singles, couples and family portraits (including our four-legged friends)
We, as a community, understands very well that “family” is a subjective term and can mean very different things to different people. A portrait of a loved one or of your “family”, is something we all hold onto and yet, most people are quick to say that they don’t have a nice photo of themselves around the house. The technological world we live in has certainly changed the way we record our lives.
A Same Love Portrait Session can include one person or many people; yourself, your partner, children, pets, parents, friends, grandparents, siblings. Creating family memories is something we do and value. Whether it be a perfect gift to yourself or as a gesture of love for Valentine’s Day or simply a chance to have a special record of your family in the now, get in contact, we would love to help you create a memory that reflects you and your family. Check out our online store for gift ideas.
Along with wedding photography, Same Love Photography also captures other events including birthdays, parties, fundraisers, charity events, book launches, corporate functions and list goes on. We have proudly captured events such as Westpac’s IDAHOT event along with fundraising events for Australian Marriage Equality. Get in touch with us today and let us know what event you have coming up, we’d love to be a part of it.
Corporate head shots and team shots
As a small business ourselves we understand the importance of how images relating to your business can help with making your brand identity stronger and relatable. We offer a number of different headshot options, including studio lit and outdoor. Often we have a portable system that we transport and set up on the premises to make life easier for the proprietor and staff members. The background of your image is an important consideration we chat to our clients about. Plain backdrops certainly bring focus to the person however sometimes an environmental company may feel shooting outdoors is a closer fit to their ethos.
The demand for photographs of loving couples and LGBTQI+ families is increasing everyday but the range of stock library images isn’t as big, resulting in the same pictures being used again and again. We all know the American male couple walking along the beach seen all over the internet. Instead, let us create a library of image options for you and your business that contain real life people that cannot be found on other websites and advertising collateral, providing you and your business personality and visibility.
Our videography services cater for same sex wedding events along with corporate videos edited and rendered for online use. Eric our primary videographer has many years of experience up his sleeve and have worked with major corporations right through to documenting intimate wedding ceremonies with 20 guests. If you require our video services or would like to learn more about how we can help you, head to our Contact Us page.
Wall Art, desk prints, photo albums, coffee table-style hard cover books
We offer a range of printed products including framed prints and albums along with e-folios that include electronic files suitable for social media and LinkedIn.
When printing photos for your wall at home, we at Same Love can advise on sizes along with mounting and framing proportions so that the image remains the key focus of the piece and compliments the space you have designated in your home. We are traditionalists, in the sense that a single print nicely presented and mounted on a wall to see everyday sure beats a hundred images being stored on your computer’s hard drive to be rarely accessed and potentially lost in years to come.
Our photographs are printed on archival paper and use quality suppliers based in Sydney. Our Queensberry albums and coffee table books are custom designed and are manufactured in New Zealand and regarded one of the best album artisans in the world today.
We also offer a premium album range, Musee, are made from 100% cotton paper sourced from France and combined with cover materials sourced from Europe. The Musee album range is the Prada of wedding albums, designed and hand made with the highest level of artisanship, a product for the discerning client who wants the best of the best.
