We are Janaka and Rachael, two photographers in love from Melbourne. We're adventurers at heart and love exploring new cities and countries. We work very hard behind the camera to get the best pictures we possibly can, capturing all those magic moments you will cherish for a lifetime. There's not a thing in the world we would rather be doing than this. Well, maybe hang-gliding off the Himalayas or riding vintage motorcycles through the jungles of South America, but that can always wait.
Thank you for taking the time to stop by and get to know us a little better. During the week we both operate our own photography / graphic design / illustration businesses which can be viewed at rachaelmichelle.com.au and janaka.com.au
We hope you enjoy our work as much as we enjoy taking photographs. Perhaps we will be pointing the camera in your direction one day soon!
We strive to create images that are filled with romance, depth and soul. Our philosophy and approach to capturing your special day is to document it as naturally and organically as possible. You won't find us posing every single shot because real moments aren’t staged. We love real, raw emotions and chase those beautiful fleeting moments We are there to capture the romance and magic of your day as it unfolds. One of the big reasons we only ever work as a team is so that we can be in two places at once and not miss a single thing.
We want you to look back at your photos in years to come and relive your special day. We want you to feel that surge of emotion from those real moments, not staged ones. We are storytellers at heart and we know that each part of your day is specially chosen by you, so we ensure that we capture all the little details that make your wedding yours.
Organic. Natural. Honest. That's Lumière.
