Fearlessly authentic wedding photos that make you feel seen and celebrated.

@hankpaul.co It means so much to me that I get to document queer love stories like Steff and Bron’s. #translove #queerlove #lgbtq #sydneyweddingphotographer ♬ original sound - Hank Paul
just imagine...when your wedding is over
you will...
  • be married to your best friend
  • have a lifetime of memories
  • own a collection of stunning photos to share, print and treasure for years to come

But first, you need a photographer who…

  • knows the most important moments to capture (hint, it's not the first kiss)
  • will make you look and feel relaxed AF by turning your “awkward” into “authentic”
  • will celebrate and affirm your relationship for all of its unique beauty

 

“You're a wizard, Hank.”

- Kaz & Bronte

Honestly, I am STOKED that you are here and reading this.

Why?

 

Because it means you're doing your research to find a photographer you love and trust.

 

I know you don't have time to muck around, so let me give you my one piece of advice to decide if we're a good fit: hire people you vibe with.

 

Chemistry, values and a sense of humour are going to be more important than simply “has camera, takes photos.”

 

If you want someone who will make you feel safe, seen and celebrated on your wedding day, then I am your person.

 

I can't wait to meet you!

AUSTRALIAN WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

"Hank made us feel comfortable and subtly took the lead at different times (much to our relief as we had no idea about what goes into getting the perfect shot!).

 

So many of our friends have commented on how perfectly shot the photos were for the occasion, and that you can feel how happy the day was from the images.

 

Some great memories we will cherish forever."

what you're getting:

Online gallery

4 weeks after your wedding you will receive access to your unique online gallery. The gallery makes it easy for you to download the high-res images, as well as compressed, Insta-ready files.

 

You’ll also be able to share this link with your friends and family, giving you full control over which photos to share and which ones to keep private.

Wedding slideshow

Every wedding photography package includes a short slideshow with 150 images, set to an immersive soundtrack that will instantly transport you back to all the feels.

Fine art albums

Every couple has the opportunity to order a fine art wedding album and invest in a living work of art. Its pages are thick, with high-quality ink that will transport you back to the best day of your life just by taking one flip through the pages.

 

The smell evokes an old bookstore and it feels luxurious to touch. There is no better way to immortalise your love than in this timeless heirloom.

3 trees planted for every wedding

After your wedding, and as my way of paying it forward to the planet, I’ll plant 3 trees in your name. These trees will represent the beginning of your new life as a married couple, as well as support the regenerative efforts required to combat climate change.

 

I’ve partnered with Rotary Adopt-A-Tree and The Orangutan Project to plant native trees in Australia and Indonesia.

 

I am also an ambassador for Less Stuff More Meaning, Australia’s eco-ethical wedding education hub. This means you’ll have unfettered access to me, Sydney’s leading inclusive and sustainable wedding photographer, to provide you with 1:1 advice and suggestions throughout the wedding planning process.

Frequently asked questions:

How would you describe your style?

The last thing you need is someone taking tacky, artificial photos of your wedding. I try my best to capture the intimate, "in-between" moments of you and your best friend.

 

If you're reading this, you've probably already got a good sense of my vibe. I will give you prompts to help shake the nerves, stay fully immersed with your lover, and forget that I'm even there.

Do you travel to weddings outside of Sydney?

Yes, I regularly travel across Australia and beyond to document people's big day. When I'm not in Sydney, you'll usually find me in Melbourne or Canberra, but I'll go wherever you like.

We’re pretty awkward in front of the camera. Will you take cheesy photos of us that are posed and fake-looking?

No. I can’t think of anything worse. Instead, I focus on building an immersive photography experience so that you look and feel relaxed AF!

Do we have to order a fine art wedding album?

Not at all. However, I absolutely believe that fine art albums are the best item to complement your beautiful wedding photos and tell the story of your special day. I give all of my clients the opportunity to purchase their wedding albums at a significant discount if ordered before the wedding day.

Is it Henry or Hank?

Sometimes Henry feels a little too formal, so I’d love for you to call me Hank.
