"We had the absolute pleasure of having Em and Pete from Poppy & Sage as our wedding photographers. There are not enough words to describe how lovely Em and Pete are. They are immediately warm and friendly and put everyone at ease, which is what you want on your big day. They were so good with our children who range in age from 1 - 14 years old. Even our moody teenager was smiling! Our guests are still talking about how brilliant our photographers were. Em and Pete demonstrate a high level of professionalism and organisation while maintaining a relaxed approach. We found them to be very accommodating and flexible, allowing us to make changes when we needed. Em and Pete were able to capture many beautiful moments and we have received so many compliments on our photos. Thank you, Em and Pete - you were perfection and we couldn't have picked better photographers!" ~Michael & Tara, valued wedding clients

“Thank you to Peter and Emily for our beautiful images. Such a warm, down-to-earth, professional couple who made our day relaxed and fun.” ~Greg & Claudine, valued vow renewal clients

We are available worldwide; however, we LOVE our own country, too. If you live anywhere in Australia and are interested in more information, here is a good place to start: our Australian travel price list. There is so much more of Australia that we are keen to see so there is a good chance we'll agree to come along for the ride!
