We’ve been incredibly lucky to photograph every wedding we do, and we are always so humbled to be a part of such an important and special day for so many of our couples.
We’ve had the honour of photographing many love stories, and below are some kind words about our couples’ experience working with us on the day.
Yet another giant thank you for all you did to capture our wedding day so effortlessly. We were lucky enough see your process while you were photographing a friend’s wedding, and this was enough for us to decide to meet with you to discuss photography for our wedding. You welcomed us into your home and offered tea, biscuits and friendship, and we discussed at length the aesthetic we were looking for to ensure it aligned with yours.
You both put your heart and soul into the photos you take and on occasions Jordan even risks his life and limb to ensure the perfect shot, standing precariously on signage or running towards a cliff to save my veil, (which was my something borrowed from my mother). You both bring such a carefree friendly approach to the process, neither Jake or I feel overly comfortable in front of a camera, but you had prompts and jokes to make us at ease and the photos reflect this in every single shot.
You both seamlessly blended in with our friends and family to ensure all of our guests were captured enjoying themselves and the night. We received digital ‘sneak peek’ photos in the first few days after the wedding, and a few short weeks later we received a selection of your favourite shots in large print form (which we have had framed and are hanging in our house), a giant stack of edited 6×4 photos and all photos taken from the day in both colour and black and white on a USB.
5 words to sum up Jordan and Mel?
They truly are the Wheatleys.
They love what they do, and go above and beyond to ensure your most special day is exactly that, Special.

Our wedding photos just blew us away! Thank you so much for capturing such beautiful moments and helping us relive the busy and hectic day. We can’t wait to show all of our friends! Thank you for the speediness of the photos too! You guys are amazing and we’re really grateful. We hope we can catch up with you at other weddings soon!

We cannot not thank you enough for our beautiful engagement and wedding photos. The time we spent with you on those days were filled with fun and many spontaneous moments resulting in some amazing photos and memories for us.
We loved how easy going, chilled you guys were on our wedding day and how relaxed you made us feel. The favourite thing about our photos is how they are natural shots of our special day and not a million staged photos. We are so grateful we chose you guys for our wedding photos, you captured a story of our wedding day which to us really displayed our love for each other.
– Jaz and Dave
When looking for someone to capture the essence of our special day, we wanted to find someone that was not only great at what they do but also loves what they do and was going to have a day of fun with us.
We could not have asked for a better team. The passion you show for not only your work, but you can feel how much you guys love love! You were such a pleasure to be around and having a close relationship with our videographer meant all of you worked so well together and made the day effortless and so much fun.
We had such a great time and really enjoyed how involved you got and did things differently instead of the old stand and pose gag. The photos came back and were truly everything we could have asked for and more. We have had so much positive feedback and everyone loves our photos. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

Mel and Jordan were the perfect balance of playful and professional. The experience while shooting was anything but awkward, with the Wheatley’s going above and beyond to make the experience feel quite natural. Both of them were willing to do what it took to get the right shot, even if it meant nearly falling into a pool of water! The final photos we ended up with were wonderful, showing the romantic lovey-dovey moments as well as the humorous ones in between. We’re even more excited now for these two to be capturing every detail of our wedding – two very happy clients!

Jordan and Mel are such incredible photographers and did such an amazing job on our wedding photos. We are usually quite shy when we are in front of the camera, although Jordan and Mel made us feel completely at ease and calm. They were able to create such a fun and relaxed environment that ensured that our photos were real and authentic. Their professionalism and passion for photography was shown from our first meeting right to receiving our photos and they were able to make the process so exciting and easy for us. They both have such an incredibly creative eye and were able to capture the most beautiful moments of the day. We could not recommend better photographers and cannot thank them enough for capturing our day in such a beautiful way!!

Mel and Jordan were wonderful! They both made us feel so relaxed and helped us to enjoy our special day even more. They were not intrusive at all, for us and our guests, and as result, the photos were largely candid and really helped capture the emotion of the occasion. Thank you so much!
– Holly and Cameron
It was the most fun photography session I’ve ever been a part of. Heaps of fun games that made the whole experience so enjoyable and made everyone relaxed and resulted in us all having a great time!

Unbelievable!! We are so happy with our wedding photos, thank you so very much!Besides your capturing of all the beauty of the day, the sacredness of the ceremony and our lovey-ness, we really loved the shots of our friends and family. There were the perfect number of shots of them and it is really special to see what we didn’t see on the day.You really have an eye for capturing everybody, and a good sense of what’s special for families. Your jovial-ness and professional-ness were really great to have on the day. Thank you so very very much!
