Behind the Lens with Eve of Still Frame Photography

 What was your draw to photography Eve? 

“My godfather instilled in me the love for photography. He gave me my first camera, Zenit E, when I was 12 and introduced me to the wonderful world of photography. I was part of a photography club throughout my school years and ended up studying Photography in Griffith College years later. Photography is one of my biggest passions, I have been photographing families and weddings for the past 10 years and I’m excited to see where it takes me in the future.”


Why wedding photography?


“To be honest, I just fell into it when my friend asked me to photograph her wedding a good few years ago. I’ve been photographing weddings and family events ever since – people are my favourite subject. I feel privileged to be invited to witness and capture special moments in people’s lives.”


Describe your wedding photographic style.


“I maintain a natural, relaxed style. I try to stay out of the bridal party’s way and capture moments and they happen. I do not orchestrate shots unless the newlyweds want me to. I always ask the couple what they want to see in their wedding photos, what makes them feel good and what would they find uncomfortable – it’s the most special day in their lives, I want them to remember the feeling of that day when they look at the photos in the years to come.”


What are your favourite weddings shots to take?


“I love capturing the emotions and small details, which translate the love that is felt throughout the day. It can be something as simple as the reassuring squeeze of the hand, a parent’s face watching their daughter or son come down the stairs, the happy couple exchanging a smile or bursting into a fit of giggles.”


Are you seeing any trends coming in the 20s in wedding photography?


“I think weddings are becoming more relaxed, with fewer formalities. Drone photography seems to be gaining popularity with weddings as well.”


Advice for couples trying to choose a wedding photographer 


“My advice is simple: it’s your day, therefore it’s your way. Choose a photographer whose style allows you to see yourself in those photos, a photographer who will listen to your ideas and help you bring them to life.”


What are the 5 must get shots of any wedding day?


“Every wedding is unique, every couple has different styles and wishes. I think the important shots of any wedding are the captured moments of love, joy, family and celebration of two people deciding to spend the rest of their lives together.”
