This is the wedding photography blog for Melbourne based photographer Brent Lukey.

Fiona and Luke

“Thank YOU Brent Lukey!!! I have had the most amazing feedback from family and friends – Dave’s Grandfather loved having a chat with you (!) and said he was very impressed with the way you “zipped” around all night capturing all the special moments. Another guest said that you were “mesmerising” and was flawed by the energy you had and the positions you put yourself in to get the perfect shots. Nothing was too difficult for you on our big day!”
Yvette and Dave

"Hi Brent, I just wanted to let you know that we received the photos! I am SO happy with them. I can’t even explain to you how great they are. We sat there and laughed and cried at them, they are just amazing. I also wanted to thank you for the day, you are such a professional. You listened to what we wanted on the day and it showed in our photos. Even when other parts of our day were a bit crazy, you calmed us down and reminded us that it was our day and to have fun. Our guests loved you and your energy and I’m really excited to show them your work. Thanks again."

"Hey mate, this weekend is the first time l have really had a good look at the wedding photos. They are great!! Thought you should know how grateful we both are. Will be in touch."

"Hi Brent, Benny and I are slowly coming back down to earth after the whirlwind of the wedding/honeymoon, and I have been meaning to email you to say an enormous thank you for all your efforts on our big day (already seems like a lifetime ago!) Since the wedding we have had more then a few compliments from various friends and family about you just being awesome - which I really wanted to pass on to you! You brought a great vibe to our wedding and Ben and I are both so appreciative."

"I hope the running behind time issue wasn't too annoying for you (I'm sure you have experienced worse?), it's funny when we spoke about things like that in our meetings pre-wedding I remember thinking surely we won't be those people running behind schedule on the day ... shows how much I know! But thinking back now we were so lucky to have someone like you who knows exactly what they are doing to take control and get the job done. You really were an amazing support to me on the day, thank you! Kind Regards,"

"Dear Brent, thank you so so much for such an amazing day. You have been so easy to deal with right from the beginning. You have made the wedding day so much fun, I know how hard you worked as I could see you running around like a mad machine on chairs, corners from start to finish. I never once had to think, where is Brent as you were everywhere. All our guest even said, wow your photographer is amazing. Everyone was interested in the way you shot pictures."

"As you are aware I didn't like my wedding dress from the trouble I had, but you make every picture look amazing. So I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you again for making everything so easy and special."

"You will always be our photographer for every occasion - family portraits, baby showers and the list of recommendation goes on. Love from Perth."
Chenda and Leigh

Sarah Bolitho - Prince Events

"Wow, how much fun was that?! We loved every minute of the wedding and seeing this all played out again through your photos just adds a whole other layer of happiness to the experience. The shots are warm, natural, full of character and beautiful and we love that so many people are included. Thank you for being so easy, cool and fun to work with."
Lucy & Chris xx

"We're thrilled with the photos, and many people have remarked on the quality of the shots. Brent was amazing, he made everyone feel very comfortable and charmed many of the guests! We really wanted candid, natural shots and were very impressed with Brent's work, and he was very easy to deal with. We wanted plenty of natural shots, and during many of the proceedings we hardly noticed he was there!

With the formal shots he had amazing attention to detail and the results show.  The photos afterwards were easy and a fun part of the day.

In addition, Brent was very accommodating fitting in a last minute engagement shoot which had to be rescheduled due to appalling weather (a gift from Shaun's sisters).  It almost seemed as though the engagement shoot was not meant to be but we were able to fit it in three weeks out from the wedding and the shots were used to decorate Matteo's with great effect."
Elena & Shaun

"Brent was awesome, energetic, passionate & fun! Having Brent as our photographer allowed us to relax and enjoy the day without being preoccupied with photo opportunities."
Belinda & Dustin

"My goodness....what can we say??!! We are absolutely thrilled with the photos, they are absolutely beautiful. We could not be happier. Thank you for providing us with such a stunning depiction of our day. You (and Michelle) were the ultimate professionals, and as can be seen in the photos, captured the essence of our day in such an un-obtrusive way. You were such fun to work with, adaptable, thoughtful, respectful and honest. We would have absolutely no hesitation to recommending you to anybody we know. It was a pleasure meeting you and working with you."
Jane & Michael

"Hi Brent, I wanted to write you a quick note to tell you how happy I am with the photos ... looking back over the pics I remember only the happiness of the day. I think weddings are a tricky thing and it can be hard for the bride to see through all the "fluff". Some things I regret spending money on ... but hiring you as our photographer was the best money we spent on the wedding, we both agree. So thanks again :-)"

"Hi Brent, you did such an amazing job of bringing the photos to life and telling the story of the day!! Huge thanks again."

"We had been admiring Brent’s wedding photography on his blog from early on in our engagement, so when the time came to decide on our photographer, it was an easy choice to meet with him. It was obvious that Brent really understood the vision we had for our wedding, and we shared his love for candid, relaxed, yet stylish photography. After viewing his wedding albums, we also really loved the way his photos told a story about the day, without looking too posed or unnatural.

On the day Brent was a pleasure to work with, and he remained professional, friendly and calm despite the weather making his job difficult. He did a wonderful job capturing our wedding with such warmth and happiness, despite the freezing cold wind that whipped up in the afternoon. Brent worked tirelessly to make sure he got the perfect shot, and everyone was very impressed with his energy and the way he went about his work on the day."
Vanessa & Rich

So here I am, just touching base to say thanks for your photography work.  We’re pleased with the photos and already some are in print.

We have received our beautiful album today and we are so happy with the result.
It is just beautiful Brent!

It has clearly been made with love and that is what is evident with every turn of the page. Very professional and classy looking. It is perfect.

We're so glad we went with the bigger size and the black leather. We love how the album really tells the story of our day and you get a real sense of being there just from looking at the photos. We definitely picked the best photos for the album.

Thank you so much for your hard work and attention to detail. We will continue to recommend you to our friends and family.

We really do hope to keep in touch with you Brent as we enjoyed your company a lot and felt from the beginning that we were all on the same wavelength. That is rare to meet people who you do feel a connection with in that way, especially when weddings are involved.

Thanks again, we love love love it!"
