|Story of true love|
This is a true story from times when Australia was on the long path to recovery from the Great Depression when this love story started. The economy was struggling, unemployment was extremely high but two people were in love and they decided to put the stamp of "officiality" on their love. They got married in a registry office.
There is almost no evidence about this humble wedding because the married couple was not in a position to hire a professional wedding photographer during those tough times.
The bride and groom decided to visit the Melbourne ZOO in the afternoon to make their humble wedding day special and that was a lucky decision. There was a somebody with a camera who was kind enough to take the one and only wedding photograph of the newly wedded husband and wife.
This black&white picture is now framed in the house of their children & grandchildren and has priceless emotional value...this picture was the first ignition spark for Rochelle's wedding photography career and until now always
reminding us how important the role is that we have as photographers at our client's weddings. The bride and groom on this priceless photograph are Rochelle's grandmother and grandfather...
The proposal - Engagement photographers - Pre-wedding photography
The (surprise) proposal is where our long term relationship with our clients often starts. Declaration of your love to another person is a very intimate moment in your life. You want to feel safe and comfortable with your choice of engagement photographers.
Our job is to create for you the best memory of the day when your love seed was officially planted. Memories that you will always want to come back to and see the beauty and feel happiness from the photographs we captured.
If we gain your trust here, the next step is a big one...
Wedding photographers in Sydney and elsewhere
Best option to hire a wedding photographer is to hire somebody you already trust - I don’t mean your best friend, I mean a photographer who you have already worked with before and whose work and personality you like.
If you don't have trust in anybody yet, it is a little bit more work to find the right fit for you.

Our goal as your wedding photographers is to make you feel as if you hired your best friend to photograph your wedding. To be clear, we don't recommend hiring your best friend as a photographer, but we understand how friends can help you feel relaxed and stress-free on your wedding day. Not everybody can be your friend, but if you choose us, we care about creating a good connection with you, because that connection will be reflected in your wedding photographs.
You don't have to remember a few years from now, who took your wedding pictures, but you will always remember, how you felt when those special wedding photographs were taken.
Yes, we have our way to photograph a wedding however we are flexible enough to incorporate what is important for you.
One of the benefits of hiring Salava Photography is that you always get both of us. With all our differences. One cheerful and bubbly and the other a silent shooter, candid wedding photographer.
We live and mostly photograph weddings in Sydney and surrounding regions however no border is a limit for us.
Destination wedding photographers
We are happy to travel anywhere. There is no location we would not like to photograph, we like different places, cultures or wedding rituals. If your wedding is in Australia have a look at our standard travel fees. If you are planning to get married in a different country, get in touch and we will personalise a package for you.
After you get married, your life will change in a sequence of occasions you will want to never forget. We are here to capture those important milestones for you. Very often a maternity shoot is the first one following the wedding. With a growing family, so will grow your collection of portrait albums and the number of family portraits you will treasure until your children become adults and start families of their own.
