Hey there! We’re Live Photography. We’re Irena and Jan, partners in life, love and crime and above all… a wedding photography team.
In our past lives, we were a lawyer and an engineer, but once we chose to make our mark on the world by setting off down the path of professional wedding photographers, we also decided that we wanted to do wedding photography differently. We wanted to break rules and challenge conventions, we wanted to take photos that are raw and honest and to create portraiture that is intimate and sexy.
We like to describe our style as contemporary, edgy, creative and fashion inspired and when we can, we like to steal our wedding couples away to some really cool locations to create epic portraits and wall-hanging-worthy art.
If we’re not shooting portraits, however, we try not to get in the way of the events that unfold naturally during a wedding day and to capture the organic flow, intimacy and emotions in an unobtrusive way. At the end of the day, artistic portraits or not, we are there to first and foremost capture and tell the story of your wedding and to take part in celebrating your love, not to style your day or interpret you as someone you are not. That is what we believe in.
We’re currently located in Sydney, Australia, but we originally launched our business in Prague. We still travel to Europe every year, and as often as possible to other parts of the world, to shoot destination weddings.
In case you still want to know more about us – we are huge travel enthusiasts, road trippers, animal and nature lovers, art and architecture admirers and always and forever… photo opportunists/the perfect shot hunters.
How I cater to Offbeat Brides
Our photography style and our work and life philosophy gel best with couples that are genuine and unique and we love to shoot weddings that are original and off-the-beaten-track different.
We've been lucky to work with some pretty awesome couples - the renegades, the revolutionaries and the rule breakers of the wedding world. We have shot in forests, in the mountains, at beaches, in the bush, at old warehouses, steelworks, at bars, in the snow and inside magnificent medieval churches. We have climbed trees, jumped in lakes, crawled through windows and under fences - sometimes us and sometimes our clients - to get those awesome envy-worthy shots.
If we still have your attention, please check out more of our work on our Live Photography website and if our photographs and style resonate with you and you feel that you'd be up for sharing an adventure with us, drop us a line. We'd love to get to know you and to document one of the most memorable moments of your love story!!
"Thank you so much. We couldn't be happier with the photos! We are amazed by just how beautiful the pictures are. xx
And thank you for being a part of our day. You are both so talented and we couldn't be happier with our choice of photographers.
We look forward to sharing our beautiful pictures and hopefully booking you both again for a family or anniversary shoot in the near future!" - Tegan & Jarred xx
