We are Sydney-based photographers who capture and preserve memories you want to remember.
Are you looking for a photographer and feel overwhelmed? Yes, it is overwhelming, there are so many photographers around.
We're a professional photography team providing:
We live in Sydney, Australia and we are available to travel where you need us.
How to choose the right photographer?
We always emphasise that first of all you have to love the work of whoever you decide to go with. Without that, you may have fun on the day with someone with a matching personality, but you will end up with photographs that you may not like because they were not your top priority before you made your decision.
Our clients choose us because they:
- love our work
- feel a good connection with us
- feel heard and understood
We listen to you carefully, dig in the details and explain our way of work. If our visions match - GREAT.
I was initially looking for someone a little bit more local, but I just couldn’t get that phone call with the photographer from Sydney out of my head and I came back to you because it felt right. - feedback from our client
We will help you
- look pretty - we aim to show you in a flattering light and from the best angle. We don’t promise miracles - we apply our experience.
- have fun and feel happy - the same as we helped our clients featured in our weddings, portraits and events portfolio. A photography event should be an enjoyable experience for everyone.
- enjoy your photographs long after your event - We think about longevity. The photos we take today will be loved many years in the future. We try to keep your photos as close to reality as possible. It means - we don't follow short-term editing trends which will soon be out of fashion. Also, the range of our premium quality print products will give you a sense of security, knowing that they will live with you the whole life and also with your kids and their kids if you treat them well.
We won't force you to do anything crazy...
... unless you want us to.
And even if you don't like being photographed, we'll make you feel at ease and fall in love with your pictures. It happened to our clients many times before as you can read in our:
Jan and Rochelle truly are amazing and super talented. We are not used to being in front of the camera, but Jan and Rochelle made us feel at ease and some how managed to make us look like we belonged in front of the camera. Their positive, relaxed, fun energy is super contagious. which made it all the more enjoyable as we bounced off each other bringing our laidback carefree nature into the photos. The photos they created were absolutely beautiful and completely us. They captured all our emotions and memories of our special day, in a way that was natural and true to our way of being. Thank you Jan and Rochelle. x - Natalie Smith
Our clients are saying that our price is very reasonable.
We engaged Salava Photography for our recent wedding. From the start they were enthusiastic, knowledgeable and friendly. They understood our needs and their costs were very reasonable, especially for the quality and clarity of the photos. Rochelle and Jan were wonderful to work with, were non-intrusive and the photos were way beyond expectations. I would recommend them to anyone and everyone! - Chris Nelson

Who are we?
We are Rochelle & Jan - life partners. We are like salt & pepper - so different but best used together. We wanted to find something we would both enjoy doing together and we found photography.
Booking a professional photographer is a luxury because your mobile phone is usually good enough to share your photos online. But why not treat yourself when it matters?
