Don’t just listen to us….

Here’s what past clients have to say….

“Hi Justin and Carla, I finally have some time to sit down and write a proper email to you guys. I have just seen the video online and I just can’t believe how perfect it is. I love each and every single one of the photos and the video is amazing. I truly cannot find the words to let you know how thankful I am for the photos and video. I think you captured the essence of the day, our friends and family, and the love Troy and I have for each other in both the photos and video, and I couldn’t have asked for anything more. I was never one of those girls who dreamt and planned their wedding when they were little, so I never imagined that the day could have been as perfect as it was. And I now have those memories on film forever and I am truly so happy and grateful for you guys being there on the day. I was extremely overwhelmed and nervous on the day and you made me feel very relaxed. And you caught some beautiful “inbetween” shots when I was being myself – and I have to say they’re the ones I love the most – especially the laughing ones. I feel like you really caught some amazing shots of Troy and I that shows how much we love each other and what our relationship is all about. I love the way you used our beautiful surroundings without doing it in an “obvious” way. You really took the time to listen to the kind of shots I was looking for and delivered them without a second thought. All our friends and family have told me how much they love the photos and how you were all such a pleasure, and so lovely to everyone on the day, and I really appreciate the time, effort and love you put into our photos. I just wanted to say from the bottom of my heart how thankful I am for everything you have done for us and we are definitely happy chappies We love them and I wanted to say thank you! Kind regards, Amanda & Troy”

“Hi Carla and Justin, Pat and I just wanted to send you a message to say thank you so much for the amazing images that you took on our Wedding Day. Since picking up our photos earlier this week, we honestly can’t stop looking at them and we are having trouble picking our favourites as they are all so beautiful. You captured our day perfectly and they show natural, true emotion. Twelve months ago when we got engaged, the advice given to us from previously married friends was to book in a photographer as soon as possible. I really didn’t know where to start in the search for a photographer, as this was something I wanted to get right. After picking up a flyer at a bridal fair and through a recommendation from a friend we were excited to meet with you. From the moment we first had our meeting with Justin, both Pat and I were impressed. Justin you were professional and very welcoming. We loved the small touches with our name on the black board out the front of your studio and after viewing samples of your work from previous weddings, we were both amazed at the quality of the images. No question was too silly and you were able to answer them all. We knew as soon as we left that day, VIBE was the photographer for us. In the months leading up to our wedding, particularly when things were getting stressful and busy, the tips and advice given were so valuable. Carla you were always quick to reply to my emails and again no question was too much for you to answer, even if it had nothing to do with photography. Thank you.  On our Wedding Day Justin and Carla, you both worked extremely hard (in the heat too) to make sure that everything ran so smoothly. You made Pat and I feel comfortable in front of the camera. We were worried how we would go because we had never had a photo shoot before. Many of our guests have also commented to us on how amazing you both were. They were impressed with your friendly nature, professionalism and particularly how discreet you both were when capturing the shots and video. Since viewing our photos, they too are impressed with the images. Justin and Carla your ability to create and capture photos is incredible. You are both extremely talented and your passion for creating lasting memories for your clients is evident in the work that you do. I will be recommending you both to friends and family and we will most definitely love to have more photos taken by you in future. Thank you again, Gemma and Pat :)

“Dear Justin, Thank you from both of us for making our wedding day and the lead up to it stress free and pleasurable. Our photo’s turned out great and will forever leave happy lasting memories of our wedding day. We would highly recommend you to anyone who needed a photographer in the future. Amy & Scott.”

“Dear Justin, We are thrilled with our photos. Thank you does not seem enough! Our family and friends response is just so fantastic! Our day was perfect and thanks to you we have it all captured and we are able to re-visit our day any time we feel like it. As well as the day itself, from the initial phone enquiry to the pick up, we have been well looked after by you! We will remember your sense of humour, your ability to keep us smiling (after 3 hours of smiling), your friendly approach towards our guests and the way our photos were taken while we were having fun. You are recommended to all our friends and family. We are very delighted with all aspects of your photography and your pleasant nature. From our hearts… Many thanks. Ambala & Peter”

“Dear Justin & Carla, Just wanted to say a quick thank you for doing such an amazing job on our wedding day. Everyone loved Justin and the photos turned out beautifully. Every person we show our photos to wants to know who took them and your number so they can use you in the future. Thanks again to both of you for being so professional and easy to get along with. Krissy & Danny”

“Dear Justin & Carla, We would like to extend a huge thank you to you both. We really could not be happier with all the work that you have done for us. The album is gorgeous and the framed enlargement will make a beautiful addition to our home. You have both been so great to deal with the whole way through and Justin, many of our guests commented on what a great guy you were to have around. So thank you so much! Karen & Adam”

“Dear Justin, We would like to thank you very much for doing such a great job on our wedding album. Dealing with VIBE has been a real pleasure!! From the pre-wedding photos at Terrigal, to our ceremony at Pearl Beach and photos at Ettalong Lookout you have been so friendly, approachable and professional. Again, thank you for taking so much time with us and for providing us with a fantastic memory of our big day. Thanks again, Stephen & Caroline”

“Dear Justin & Carla I just thought I’d drop you a quick line to once again say a huge thankyou to you and Justin. It’s nearly 12 months on and I still look at my wedding album all the time and am always amazed at just how wonderful the photo’s are. I am just packing to go home to Coona for the first time since the wedding and couldn’t put the box into my suitcase without having another little look. I just felt like I wanted to tell you again how happy we were with the photo’s and everything that you did on the day! So thanks guys, you have given Craig and I some wonderful memories of a wonderful day. Thanks Suzy & Craig”

“Justin & Carla. Thank you for making us feel so comfortable all day long on our wedding day! We never felt as though we were posing for the photographs. Justin, you took control but were never over bearing so we knew that the photographs you were taking were going to be great! Before the wedding you were always prompt in returning emails which was great. Especially in times of panic! Thank you both so much for all of your fantastic work. We never felt as though we were just another couple. You are really good at what you do! Thank you again. :) Larissa & Shane”

“Dear Justin & Carla, A huge thank you for the most amazing & wonderful wedding photographs and album. We were absolutely blown away by the amazing job that you both did. Our album far exceeded our expectations and will be dearly treasured. Thank you for helping make us feel so comfortable and relaxed on the day. It was such a pleasure to have you capture our very special day! Kristie & Sam”

“Dear Carla & Justin, We just wanted a say a huge thank you for doing such a wonderful job capturing our special day. Words can not explain how much we love our photos! We are so happy with how they turned out. Justin, our guests keep raving about your professionalism on the day, and how lovely and patient you were with everyone. Most of them didn’t even notice you running around capturing all of the intimate moments throughout our day. You managed to capture some of the most precious moments of our lives. There’s a photo of my Dad that you managed to capture, where he is genuinely smiling and showing his raw emotion while giving me away. This is a VERY rare occurrence for my normally comedic Dad, and my family can’t believe that not only did he show a rare glimpse of his true emotions, but that you managed to capture the moment perfectly. You are both so incredibly passionate and dedicated to everything that you do. This shows through the incredible images you produced of possibly the least photogenic couple in existence (Nick and I are terrible in photos). We are really appreciative of all of your help before, throughout and after the wedding. Especially Carla’s helpful hints and friendly reminders. Some of the simplest things slipped my mind in the lead up to the wedding, and without Carla’s tips I know there are some things that I never would have thought of. Thank you again for your incredible professionalism and the pride you take in your work. We are so glad we picked the perfect photographer to capture our special day, and can’t wait to pick up our album. Krystal & Nick”

And Here’s some more….

” Hi guys,
Clinton and I would just like to say thank you so much for the truly incredible job you both did capturing our special day. From the moment I saw your pictures online I knew I wanted you guys to photograph our wedding day.  Carla you were a godsend when it came to helping me organise everything. Organising a wedding when you are far can be difficult but you made it so easy, always had the perfect answer to all of my questions and you both had great advice. Planning the timeline was something I was probably most stressed about but you made it an easy task. Justin’s phone call the day before to run through everything just reassured me of all the times and details and helped me stop stressing. From the second you both arrived in the morning photos were a breeze. You both are clearly professionals at what you do and the photos and video prove that.  Clinton hates photos but you made it easy and natural so he never got sick of it (which is a miracle in itself). It was a pleasure to have you in our homes and have you capture our special day. Then the pictures were put up online and we were both completely gobsmacked. They are truly amazing! We were totally blown away and have so many favourites, everyone constantly compliments us on the fantastic photos. The video is probably my favourite thing of all, as it still has the stunning photos Justin captured but also all the hilarious and fun moments throughout the day/night. You guys have given us everlasting memories of the best day of our lives and we cannot thank you enough for that. You were by far my favourite of all the vendors (and we had some pretty damn good ones). Your professionalism and fun-loving nature made what could have been an awkward experience so much fun, and we are so grateful for the pictures and video we can show our children and families in years to come. We cannot recommend you guys highly enough, LOVE your work!! Thanks you again from the bottom of our hearts and I’ll be sure to brag about you to everyone.
Love always,
Clinton & Janelle”

“Dear Justin & Carla, During the planning and organising of our wedding we have had the pleasure of dealing with many fantastic and attentive vendor, all of which came together on the 20th March 2010 to give us a truly spectacular wedding day. We can honestly say that without a doubt, VIBE Photography was the most amazing, helpful and caring wedding vendor that we had the absolute pleasure of dealing with. From the very first time we met with you we got an amazing insight into your passion for breathtaking photography and a taste of the attention to detail and personal service that you provide. Every phone call we made and every email we sent was replied to immediately which really made organising our wedding a lot easier and saved us so much time. The helpful bits of information that Carla gave us along the way were invaluable and your friendly reminders made sure we never overlooked anything in the lead up to our day. Nothing at all has been too much work for you and you have been so helpful with all our layout changes and enlargements. We both had very high expectations for what we wanted for our wedding photos as they form the most important part of our memories for the day and are something that you look back on in the years to come and cherish. Not only did Justin achieve this for us but he far surpassed and expectations we had. Justin’s photography on the day was nothing short of amazing. He has an uncanny knack of seeing the perfect photo in almost every situation and somehow manages to capture the mood of the moment as well as the incredible image. The photos of our wedding are truly spectacular. Everyone who has had the pleasure of seeing our photos has commented on how breathtaking they all are and how amazing our album looks. It is obvious to everyone who sees your photo’s that you take great pride in your work and have a real gift for photography. Thank you for being the perfect photographer for our perfect day. We can’t thank you enough. You should be so proud of the outstanding business you run. Lovely people, fantastic service and the most amazing beautiful photos. With warm thanks, Andrew & Becky”

You captured the essence of us in every single photograph. We believed going into our wedding, that one of the most important parts of the day would be our photographer, as it is you that captures the memories of day and you did this perfectly. We could not have been more pleased with our photos and video. You made us look like models. You captured the love, the laughter, the joy, and all the emotion of the day with your amazing gift. You see more through your lens than what we could have even with our own eyes. We have had so many people compliment us on our stunning wedding photos and video. Not only were the photos and video amazing, your professionalism prior, during and after the wedding has been outstanding.

“Hi Carla & Justin, Paul and I have had such a great time looking through our photos, there are just so many captured moments. We are even more excited now about coming up in the new year and going through them with you and checking out our album. The photos are just beautiful and we couldn’t be happier. From the moment we had our first meeting with Justin at Shelley beach, we walked away feeling so positive and knew we had made the right choice of photographer. You both have been extremely professional, efficient and just lovely people to communicate with. You always answered back to us very quickly and answered all of our questions.  On our wedding day, you made Paul and I feel comfortable in front of the camera ( as we have never had professional shots before) you were very discreet in taking your shots, and no one ever noticed you in the way. All of our guests are still raving about our slide show too, it was so amazing getting to share that with our guests and also for Paul and I to be able to reflect on our day together. We have already said that once we fall pregnant, we will most certainly to in contact again for more professional shots. Thank you Carla & Justin!! Kristy & Paul”

“Hi Carla and Justin, Words cannot describe how much we are absolutely in love with the amazing photos Justin has captured on our day. Last weekend we sat down and watched all 3 discs, it took us over 2 and half hours to go through, and we love every single one of them! Justin you were such a pleasure to work with, you were very polite, patient and easy going. Any questions or ideas I had you were all for it. I can see how much love and passion you have for photography. As soon as I saw your work from previous weddings, I knew we had to have you for our day as well. Everybody loves the photos you have taken, but most important of all, both Chris and I love them! :) When our first dance had been over, Justin was packing up about to leave, when I asked if it was possible if he could stay a few more minutes to capture the garter tossing and the throwing of the bouquet. Justin, you didn’t hesitate at all, and you were all for it. I can’t thank you enough for staying that extra bit longer, these shots truly capture those funny moments. Thank you :) Carla even though I have never had the opportunity to meet you in person, you were a lifesaver when it came to planning our day. Any questions or concerns I had you were always quick to reply and ensure me everything will be fine. It goes to show that you really love your work and it shows how much knowledge and passion you have for the industry. Once again we would like to say a massive thank you to you both for all the help, support and memories you have captured. It truly shows how much of a true professional you both are :) Thank you, thank you, thank you :) From Kathryn and Chris xoxo”
