Hello! We are Peter & Emily McDonald from Poppy & Sage Photography. Congratulations and thank you for considering us for your big day. You can read more about us here. We are keen to work with you by providing quality photography tailored to your individual needs. Please let us know more information using the contact form below. If you provide us with your mobile number and a suitable time, we will call or text you to discuss in detail (please let us know which form of communication you would prefer). You will find our FAQ page here.
Our rate at Poppy & Sage Photography is $350 AUD/hour with a minimum investment of 5 hours for weddings + travel fees. You can customise your package from here. If you want us for 10 hours of coverage, it will be $3,500 AUD + travel fees. It's that straightforward. We pride ourselves on being transparent with our pricing.
We are based in Brisbane, Australia, and we are very happy to attend weddings in Melbourne. We have visited Victoria three times and counting. Some highlights from our trips include (but are not limited to): finding our way around outer suburbs, such as Warrandyte. Doing headcounts at Kangaroo Grounds (the name does not disappoint!). Wandering the main streets of Melbourne and soaking up the architecture and discovering new (to us) laneways with edgy menus. Walking out of Cuckoo Restaurant feeling pretty satisfied. Seeing our lives flash before our eyes when we experienced our first hook turn (Brisbane has no such thing, thankfully!). Popping into the Yarra Valley Chocolaterie & Ice Creamery (the name says it all, really). So yes - we would welcome the opportunity to make more happy memories in Melbourne! :)
$350 AUD/hour earns you:
-availability in the lead-up to the wedding
-2 shooters on the day; husband & wife team
-50-75 images/hour on usb
-a photojournalistic, documentary approach that is intimate, clean and unobtrusive
-reliablity of service and quality of product
-meticulous in-house QA/QC as no step in the process is outsourced
Looking forward to working with you!

"We value old-fashioned service and quality. We want to be available in the lead-up to your shoot to get to know you and the things that are important to you and your story. We want to hear the details. We will actually stop and listen." ~ Emily McDonald
"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
