Danijel Lukic is an Australia based Sydney wedding photographer

Hello, my name is Danijel and I am an Australia based internationally renowned wedding photographer. I live in Sydney with my wife and my two kids, and I will travel all over Australia and the rest of the world, to take pictures at weddings. My wife Di, is also my image editor and virtually the other half of our business. We're married since 2002. Our approach to weddings is not about never-ending lines of formal groups or particular shot lists, it’s about working quietly and telling the story of your day through my eyes. I even keep the posed shots friendly and fun. I like to give my clients something special and different from the traditional. I shoot from the heart and my intention is to make my photography a relaxed, fun and happy experience for my clients too! This passion reflects in my photographs, and I hope you will think the same.

Sydney Wedding Photographer Yasmina Ilic-Miloradovic, of NSW

Hey there! Ever since I was a little girl, I have always loved weddings... but I can't exactly say the same for photography. I would love to say my grandfather gave me a camera at age 5 and it grew from there, but it didn't! Over the years I have enjoyed taking photographs but when I fell pregnant with our eldest daughter something clicked and I just thought I would study photography, just for me, so that I have wonderful tangible moments of her. My hobby quickly turned into my passion and when we moved from Sydney to London in 2014, it snowballed into a little business. Now, I simply cannot imagine doing anything else. I adore each and every wedding that I am blessed to capture and I count down the days between each one. Over the last 2-3 years, I have shot over 70 weddings, trained with some of the most respected wedding photographers and won numerous awards. I have been lucky enough to photograph weddings in Australia, UK, Italy, Greece, and Austria. I cannot wait to see where the next few years take me... perhaps to your wedding ;) [Sydney Wedding Photographer]

Australian Wedding Photojournalism by Alan Rogers

With every wedding I photograph I bring along 40+ years of photographic experience for the Bride, Groom & their families. My approach allows everyone to fully enjoy the wedding because I will not overly direct and pose people. The day goes so quickly, and I believe Brides and Grooms deserve to have as much time as possible with family and friends. It is during these times that the moments are most sincerest. As a father of four beautiful children myself, I understand how precious family is, and how images seized today will be treasured, becoming irreplaceable in years to come. My goal for every Bride and Groom is to capture images that tell the true story, heart and soul of their wedding! [Melbourne Wedding Photographer]

Wedding Photographer captures quite moment as the bridesmaid looks timidly out before entering the scene
Weddings can be chaotic, noisy affairs where emotions are displayed publicly, so one of your biggest challenges that day can be capturing that quiet, intimate side. Trust, anticipation, skilled observation, savvy lens selection and a host of other judgments make it possible to bag those poignant moments in images that recall the day for those in attendance, and reveal a story for those who were not. It is all part of the unique value proposition that our members bring to wedding photojournalism.Read more

Philippe Swiggers, of , is a wedding photographer for Puglia
While wedding party stereotypes still exist, most people realize there’s more to being a bridesmaid than looking beautiful, more to being a groomsman than adding life and excitement to the reception party. But even the bride and groom might not fully understand just how helpful these roles can be, long after the train is bustled and the speeches are given. With a little direction (and not that much effort), members of the wedding party can facilitate great wedding photojournalism —a favor that...Read more

Sideline story photography at the wedding reception showing ladies drinking gin from tea cups
Some wedding photographers may feel the need to include the bride or groom in every picture, but those photos convey only part of the day's record. Most WPJA members will probably tell you that you're not fully documenting the event unless you get out there on the periphery and record the subplots of the wedding day—the unique and intersecting stories of the guests as they enjoy the festivities. We call these types of pictures “sideline shots,” and they are distinct from the standard reaction...Read more

Thank you for creating such a precious memory for our wedding. It was when I searched on the internet for just the perfect photographer for our wedding that I came upon your website. Your work is truly inspiring, your pictures are full of warmth and you are able to capture all those touching and meaningful moments. With you, we were certain that our wedding pictures are in good hands and we looked forward to a warm and God-loving wedding. Recalling the discussions before the wedding, your replies were always quick and passionate. You asked for our wedding details and our input on ideas gave us confident that you were serious in your work. Meanwhile we expressed to you that we hope to capture a lot of happy and cheerful moments, not necessary of ourselves but also of our guests. Now with the photos in our hands, we cannot help but laugh out loud as we go through the pictures in delight. We were wondering what was exactly happening during the time you caught the picture of people laughing so hard. We are sharing all these lovely pictures with our family and friends and everyone is so touched and pleased with them. Of course, you made us look so beautiful in these photos as we never thought we could be so photogenic! Our parents are also praising with laughter, "They are so stunning!". We really want to give a big thank you for the work you have done on our special day. Thank you Lord we met such an upbeat and passionate photographer who is able to grasp precious moments and is thoughtful of the bride and groom. We also appreciate your two assistants for their help. Wish you all the best and hope you can continue taking more sweet photos for the newly weds.

You are a talented and accommodating photographer. Booking you and your team was very simple and throughout the lead-up to our wedding you were clear and efficient. On the day, you and your team were unfailingly polite and friendly to everyone you came across, and made us and all the guests feel very comfortable in front of the camera. Your team tried the best to accommodate the guests, our family and our demand without complaints. You are great talent for capturing a feeling in an image. You delivered a beautiful set of images that capture many very happy memories despite the occasionally gloomy weather on the day. We were particularly impressed with the shots taken at the rooftop of Excelsior Hotel. I’m sure we will continue to enjoy looking through them for years to come.

Hello John, Thank you for capturing our special moment in both our banquet in Penang and Hong Kong. You managed to snap all our precious moments and your photos truly touched our hearts. You managed to capture all details and looking at our photos truly brings us back to our wonderful wedding again. Your light heartedness made the wedding fun and enjoyable yet all shots taken were professional and artistic. Even showing our photos to those that did not attend our wedding, they could clearly see the romance, joy and fun. A lot of people in Penang have asked for your contact details But unfortunately you are in Hong Kong! You managed very well as a single photographer in our Penang wedding, not easy for a big banquet.

Hi Alan, Just wanted to let you know how happy James and I are with your work. Looking at them makes me feel like it was just yesterday and you really captured how the whole day felt. I can't take the smile off my face whenever I look at them. I don't know how I'm going to choose which ones to frame although I do have a few favorites. Your photos are a credit to you, feel free to use them on your website or social media. Thanks again. Rebecca & James

We are so glad that we found you to be our wedding photographer because you are so friendly, professional, and responsible. You and your team worked wonderfully with our other film/photography crew, which was very important for us because we had three different groups of photographers/cinematographers. You are very professional and communicated with everyone very well so we never had to worry about crew getting into each others way. You were very responsible, always on time and sent us the final photos very promptly after the wedding. You also were really patient with us whenever we had questions or needed his help. You never seemed irritated or unreliable or unreachable, always happy and quick to reply to my messages. Most importantly, you took beautiful photos of our wedding day and captured all our happy and emotional moments. This made us feel very comfortable and ensured we captured all the essential family photos that we will cherish forever. Your photos were very real and natural and we love them very much! We are so glad that we hired you to be our wedding photographer and would highly recommend all our friends and family to book you as well!

To John and his wonderful team, Thank you so much for your amazing work. I can’t thank you enough for doing such a great job at capturing the memories on our special day, just the way we liked. Thanks for being so understanding and completely flexible on the day. We were probably one of your most chaotic clients (we know that) but your team’s and your calm presence was exceptional. We never felt pressured for once on the day and you just went with flow. All the meetings I had with you before the wedding were informative. It was a great idea to have met you properly before the wedding. We absolutely love our videos and the pictures – they bring us back to the day every time we see them. I particularly love how they capture the happiness and emotions of our friends and families, they are priceless and we can’t wait to show them to our friends and families from overseas! John, sincerely thank you again for making our wedding day so memorable. Your creativity and special ability deserves to be recognized. I have no doubt recommending your service to all of my friends and families and I’m looking forward to future collaborations with you and your great team. Best wishes, Kate Chow
