Wedding Photography

We'll capture your day in all its beauty.

One day. One take – the biggest day of your life deserves to be captured elegantly, professionally and with care.

Your wedding photographer needs to be someone you trust, someone you feel comfortable and connect with. Trust us – you’ll have a million other things to think about so you need someone who knows what they are doing and who will work well with your guests as well as your bridal party. 

From sultry glamour shots to joyous celebration, Lion + Cub’s lead photographer Nikki McLennan is a self-confessed wedding romantic who is guaranteed to shed a tear during the speeches but keep her cool behind the lens!

A private joke from the groomsmen, traditional elegance of a favourite Aunty, the band bouncing or ‘the kiss’ – she’ll capture them all with a grin on her face!

Testimonials

“Lion & Cub took our wedding photos at Watsons Bay. With the way we timed our wedding, Nikki would have been run off her feet to get to each venue and beat the sun setting. Nikki did this in her stride and managed to take such fantastic photos. The album she produced was something special. She personally selects and arranges the photos to tell the story of the day. You can also tell the quality of the print.”

Cecilia + Michael
"Nikki gave us an amazing experience from start to end. From our first meeting, we could see how passionate she was and knew she was the right fit. We were able to see her albums and wall art on display and helped us imagine the kind of artwork that would complement our new home. On the day, she was able to direct us with posing and at other times capturing the day unfolding, and she took the time to photograph all of our family and friends. We couldn't be happier with the final products!"

“Nikki photographed my wedding in the Royal National Park. As I had been living overseas, Nikki helped me locate a hairdressers, make up artist and dress! She was highly professional, none of the posing felt awkward - which I thought would be inevitable - and she was able to-get really natural shots. I felt she really captured the spirit of the day”

Additional Information

  • Make sure there is shade so that you and the bridal party are not squinting, and choose a pleasant background for the vows (foil party balloons are not attractive in photos)
  • A second photographer will be able to document the groom getting ready, while our lead photographer is with the bride. You will also get heaps of variety and an incredible range of imagery
  • Ask your celebrant to step aside when it’s time for the kiss so there are no extras faces in the photo
  • Consider hiring a babysitter to mind younger children for the ceremony (especially if you are filming the day)
  • Allow at least an hour for for us to capture traditional bridal party wedding images (the happy couple, the bridal party, the bridesmaids etc)
  • Bring a pair of comfortable stylish shoes for those walking shots from a distance if you have plans for several locations (especially if your dress hides your feet!)
  • Lion & Cub only commits to a certain number of weddings each season, to make sure our clients get the attention they deserve
“I love weddings. I love the atmosphere, the emotion, the unscripted moments and the bringing together of family and friends to share the celebration. I consider myself a documentary style wedding photographer who captures a mix of candid, whimsical moments combined with relaxed, natural family portraits. I will capture the warmth and emotion and truth felt between you and your guests and its these moments that you can return to again and again as they years fly by”
