ABOUT US : OUR APPROACH
You matter most. Picturebook Photographics' signature service distinguishes itself from other boutique providers by the emphasis put on you, the client.
Based in regional Victoria, we service clients in Echuca, Moama, Melbourne, Bendigo, Hay, Shepparton, Kyneton, Daylesford and surrounds.
Your portrait sitting, commercial portfolio shoot or wedding day is a unique event with specific requirements. We listen, collaborate with conceptualization and planning and act as a co-conspirator to your grand visual plan.
Over many years our principal photographer has developed broad, cross-platform experience that translates to an ever growing portfolio of photojournalistic and portrait collections.
On the day of your wedding shoot, our team bring a non-invasive directorial influence and serve as enthusiastic partners as you prepare for your ceremony, walk the aisle and celebrate afterwards.
As photo documentarians, we observe rather than chase your day is it unfolds and formalize compositions to frame you in the most flattering light. We have a sixth sense, and a sensitivity to your needs. You are commissioning us to create a memory so it is incumbent on us to deliver a final product in synthesis with your ideas.
At PictureBook Photographics, relationships with a select clientele base take precedent over filling our calendar with week after week sittings. This exclusivitiy allows us to devote our full energy and creativity to your shoot and allows us the time to edit your images and albums with the finest attention to detail.
Photography is our true love. We approach each project with vision, experience and genuine interest. Trust in us and know that by engaging our services, there's one less thing you have to concern yourself with.
See you there. We can't wait.
