At Chasing Summer our style is simple and relaxed, and we strive to capture the real you and the nuances of your relationship. As you’ve probably gathered, we LOVE photographing weddings, and we treasure the opportunity we have to capture every detail of the day for you. We document your day with a combination of photojournalism and modern portraiture to capture not only the intricacies of what happens on the day, but also the unique nature of the relationship between the two of you. Finally, on your wedding day we’ll make sure you and your bridal party have a great time, because we know that when you are relaxed and having fun we get great photographs!

A) Our photography is a combination of modern portraiture and photojournalism which we feel captures the real moments of your day as well as ensuring we have beautiful and creative images of you that show you at your best. For much of the day we are in the background, photographing you as you interact with your families and guests, but at some time during the day we like to spend at least an hour with you away from the event where we can get some beautiful natural images of you together as husband and wife. We also believe in capturing all the details of your day, so expect to see many detail images, from your shoes and dress to your table decorations and cake.
A) Of course! We know just how important these images are to you and your family. About two weeks before the wedding we will catch up with you to check final details and times, and at that time we give you a listing with our standard family groups for you to review, and make any changes or additions to as required. Then, immediately after the wedding when your guests have finished congratulating you we take all of your formal family photographs.
A) Every wedding is photographed by Antony and Mary Ann – We feel that the approach we take as a married couple helps us build a connection with our couples which results in better images. We don’t think that could be duplicated by a studio photographer, and as a result if you book with us you get us!
A) No, we are still photographers and like to concentrate on our area of expertise, however if you are interested in a new take on wedding films and an amazing and creative way to show off your day, have a look at our Moving Pictures!
A) For most of the year Chasing Summer is based in Tamworth, and we travel all over NSW for weddings! With our central location we service regional areas including Armidale, Gunnedah, Tenterfield, Inverell and Glen Innes as well as the Upper Hunter Valley. We are often on the coast shooting weddings in Coffs Harbour, Port Macquarie, South West Rocks and as far South as Newcastle. We are also available for destination weddings - Contact Us for details

A) Our start time depends upon your preference, but we normally commence two hours before the ceremony so we can fully capture you getting ready, including all of the details. If your collection includes full day coverage or you’ve upgraded your package to include our stop-motion wedding film, then you have us from dawn until you leave the reception!
A) We post your online gallery featuring 300 – 400 images from your wedding day within three weeks. At your reception we hand out custom printed cards that give your guests details on how to find the gallery, and see your gorgeous images. The gallery also has the capacity for your guests to purchase images inexpensively. Your album design and image disk are delivered to you within six weeks from your wedding day, and your finished album is normally delivered six to eight weeks after the design is approved.
A) Yes. We provide our couples with the selected, edited high-resolution digital files. We do retain the copyright to the images and the right to use them for promotional purposes, competition, and online sharing etc. however we are glad to provide you with a written release that will allow you to make unlimited personal reproductions and copies for your friends and families.
A) All of our collections come with an engagement shoot. We have found that we build a rapport with couples during their engagement shoot that helps us get better results on their wedding day. Couples also get used to being photographed, and as a result are more relaxed on the day. And if you are more relaxed, we get better images!
A) Our business commenced as North Coast Photography in 2007 and rebranded to Chasing Summer in 2012. Before that time Antony was a professional wedding photographer in Melbourne working for an established studio. Together we have photographed over 300 weddings.
