ABOUT

Hey I'm Nikolas David a Gold Coast, Brisbane and Byron Bay wedding photographer.

My style is candid, modern & timeless. My images are bespoke, technically exceptional, composed thoughtfully and edited with vibrant colour and nostalgic black & whites.

I shoot for the feeling within a photograph.

My approach on the day is easy going and calm. I shoot your day as it happens naturally while delivering you and your partner a beautiful collection of photographs that showcase your day and everyone that was part of it. 

To see the style of photos of your friends and family that I'll take at your wedding head to my

guests at weddings and direct flash galleries. 

 

I like to be very pleasant, down to earth and likeable at your wedding. I won't ever make myself the centre of attention or embarrass you in any way on your day.

I have over 200 weddings of experience and take on a limited number of weddings each year to ensure the end product of every wedding is of the highest quality. 

 

If you would like me to shoot your wedding please get in touch via my contact page or send through an email to info@nikolasdavidweddings.com I'd love to hear from you.

To give a little more insight on how my approach works on the day:

 

For full day coverage I’ll spend an hour with the boys and an hour with the girls getting ready.

 

I’ll arrive to the ceremony 40 minutes before it begins to give myself enough time to shoot your styling, set the scene and be ready for you and your guests to arrive. Ceremony coverage is very candid from here onward, capturing everything as it unfolds.

 

After the ceremony we’ll do some family photos - this usually only takes around 10 minutes. 

 

Once family photos have been captured there'll be a period of time for you and your partner to hang out with your friends and family and soak in your wedding day. Usually this part of the day is referred to as cocktail hour. During this period I’ll be taking candid photos of your friends and family as well as photos that set the vibe and the scene. I’ll also take photos of your reception styling throughout this period. 

 

Once the the lighting and timing is right well duck out of cocktail hour for bridal party photos (if you have a bridal party) as well as photos with you and your partner. I only need 10 minutes for bridal party photos and 15 minutes for portrait photos with you and your partner. I work very efficiently to ensure you aren’t away from the celebrations with your friends and family for too long but also ensure we get some really nice photos during this time as well.

 

We'll then head back to the reception and the rest of the evening will be captured candidly with lots of photos of you and your friends & family having a good time throughout the night.

 

Specific timings of all the above will be discussed and planned with you prior to the day to ensure your day runs smoothly and exactly how you and your partner would like it to run.
