our photography style

Serendipity photography possesses an instantly recognisable style, which is born of the combined experience of their award winning team of photographers and post production technicians. Our style stems from contemporary narrative photography, photo journalism and portraiture. This means that the images of Serendipity focus on the art of visual storytelling, illustrating the physical and emotional landscape of their subjects.

Years ago we recognised that our customers had a need for frank and emotional photography that were often not being met by other photographers. Serendipity fashions a personal photography style which is based upon customers’ ideas and preferences. When observing our work, people comment that Serendipity images show real emotion, Serendipity images are confident, refreshing, even a little edgy; the style is light and flowing, unobtrusive but intimate. Relax and let Serendipity’s talented team and imagination create beautiful images.

Our photography is beautiful, emotional and powerful.

We have created stunning wedding albums for well over two thousand couples — so you feel and look beautiful.

Packages start from $2350 for a 24 side large magazine album with around 120–180 images including two hours of reception coverage, and seven A3 wall prints. Now our 24 side photography package includes 1000 colour and sepia hi-res digital files.
