Lucy Spartalis and Alastair Innes - a destination wedding photography & videography duo based between Byron Bay and Melbourne, creating cinematic films and breathtaking photographs in a creative, modern style.

Introduced by a mutual friend outside a local pub, we soon began dating and sharing our work with each other, immediately realising how perfectly suited our styles were. Very quickly, ‘She Takes Pictures He Makes Films’ was born.

We work stealthily and unobtrusively, capturing real moments as they happen, and helping you to relax and enjoy your day. Never overcrowding you, or asking for awkward smiles from you and your guests, you won’t even notice we’re there. After all – your day shouldn’t be one big photo shoot, or feel like a film set! Your day is a celebration for you and those you love.

When the time comes for the portrait session, we’ll help guide you through the process (we know how hard it can be to pose for photos) and will help you to create truly unique, artistic images to frame and treasure. Alastair’s 6-8 minute films are beautifully edited to music – the perfect way to share your story online with friends and family.

We’ll capture all the details; the little things that you miss, the huge moments you never want to forget – and we’ll stay as long as you need us to. We may even join you on the dance floor. We feel truly honoured to work with incredible couples around the world and would absolutely love to hear from you.

Verandahs

Choosing your wedding venue will be the most important decision you will make to begin planning your special day. Therefore a number of important factors have to be considered to ensure the day is perfect.

You have to consider whether the venue is functional for your style of wedding. Will it accommodate your caterers and their equipment? Can it provide for the unpredictable elements Mother Nature throws at us? Will your guests be relaxed and comfortable throughout the day and into the evening?

Verandahs have considered all of the above and provide several beautiful locations around the property to set the stage for your day. There are ample shaded areas in the gardens for the warmer months and flat level grass areas for ceremony seating. There are big wide verandahs to mingle on during the night or seat your guests for a feast! For those wedding days where the sun has refused to shine, we have the verandahs as your romantic wet weather option with 360 degree see through pull down blinds to give protection from the elements all year round or can simply add another dimension and transition the mood from afternoon to evening entertaining.

The huge undercover carport accommodates the caterer’s needs with ample power points, lighting and access to running water.

Verandahs Studio House is the perfect place for the bride and her maids to relax and get ready. The Studio House is far enough away from the wedding activity for your privacy but still close enough to feel the excitement as your day comes together and your guests start arriving.

The main king bedroom is a beautiful backdrop for your first photos! No need to leave the property for that perfect photo shoot. Verandahs have that covered as well.

Whilst the Bridal photo shoot is in progress your guests can mingle in gardens and sport their talent in a variety of lawn games, or simply relax and watch the sunset.

We have it covered at Verandahs, leaving no surprises except for the ones on your guest’s faces as they arrive at your chosen venue!

This is our promise to you…

So, how does it all work .... y'know, the photography!
Very. Good. Question. When you think about it, having your photograph taken isn’t really the most natural thing in the world for most people and your wedding day may (or may not) be the only time in your entire life that it is done by a professional.
