Karen & Tom

David and Belle were the perfect people to photograph our wedding. Right from the first meeting they put me and my now husband at ease and gave us complete confidence that they would capture the day exactly as we wanted it to be captured.

For my husband, Tom, photography is a bit of a hobby and he was absolutely thrilled with all of David and Belle’s work. They just make everything look so beautiful without it looking ingenuine and rigid. For me, they just brought such a funand calming presence to our day. They accommodated every request, made wonderful suggestions and just made sure our day was the most special day.

We cannot thank them enough!

Rebecca & Daryl

Choosing a photographer was one of the most painful choices that come with engagements and weddings. We took forever to decide and was rather fickle until the last second.

That’s where the pain ended.

We Are Origami are absolutely incredible! Talented. Fun. Professional. Exceptional service. David was consistently sweet, helpful and super prompt on any questions we had and when it came to the day, David and Khoa just made it relaxed, natural and so much FUN. They didn’t ‘time keep’, they really listened to the feeling and style that we wanted to capture and more importantly, they delivered exactly what we had dreamed for.

The photos also arrived earlier than expected (another service bonus!). We thoroughly enjoyed our time with Dave & Khoa. So much that we’re considering taking more pics just for the fun of it!

It was truly a seamless end to end experience. Thank you.

Dorothy & Clifford

We were very fortunate to have Dave and Belle capture our special day, even though their own wedding was only a few weeks away. We Are Origami were the first photographers we met and we locked them in right after our meeting because they were so passionate and easy to connect with (and Cliff also loved Dave’s hipster wooden watch that day lol). We loved their attentiveness to details and photojournalistic approach that focused on emotions while being playful with light and colour.

They did an amazing job with our engagement shoot, where we felt right at ease in front of the camera because they made the experience so relaxing and fun. As expected, it was also the same on our wedding day. They were super responsive and committed – running through the timing of our schedule, suggesting improvements so that the day would go more smoothly and checking on our location shoot site a few days out.

We have only received a few sneak peek photos from our wedding and can’t wait for the rest of them because we are certain they will be just as magical. We couldn’t have asked for anyone better and would highly recommend them! xx Cliff and Dot

Claire & James

Working with Dave and Belle was one of the things that made our wedding amazing! They were incredibly organised, friendly and patient on the day with all the shenanigans that happened. Though it would have been difficult managing all the family and bridal party, they still managed to have a laugh and create the most spectacular memories and keepsakes for us. The best part was that it felt like we had friends there with us to capture our best moments.
I highly recommend this couple to photograph your wedding – perfect mix of professionalism and friendliness.

Amy & David

I feel as if we have over used the word Thank You! But we can’t thank you enough – for being so ORGANISED going through our wedding schedule with us twice in detail and making sure the day went by smoothly, so THOUGHTFUL in double-checking our wedding day location shoot is available cause you know we will forget, so UNDERSTANDING and PATIENT with all our requests and silly questions, so CREATIVE and FUN in coming up with our wedding day games so everyone is at ease in front of the camera.

You guys are absolutely amazing in capturing all the details of our wedding! Whenever we see the photos it takes us back in time as if it was our wedding day again. Thank you for being such an important part of the start of our lives together!!!

PS: Can’t wait to plaster the walls of our new home with these beautiful photos (not just our FB wall)! xxx

Belinda & Perlon

A BIG THANK YOU to Dave & Belle for their professionalism, friendly nature and passion as our Wedding photographers. These are the qualities that define the great service they deliver. The team made us felt really comfortable and they seriously go above and beyond to ensure all is taken care of from beginning to the very end. These guys are the total package from organising all the logistics, venue, make up and styling of our popular engagement shoot through to walking along with us as we share all exciting elements of our Wedding. They took it all in to ensure all is captured on the Wedding day. Not to mention being able to share the excitement with Dave when I first bought my dream Wedding dress in which he has been a great support along the way. Cheers to the team for being such a delight to work with and I highly recommend them to make your wedding day just as special!

Jess & Daniel

We were so lucky to stumble across Belle and Dave online – their portfolio was amazing, however, we were even more pleased when we met them in person. They are both such pleasant and fun people to be around, all the while delivering an extremely professional, timely and considerate service. Special thanks goes to Belle for being a calming and positive presence during the unfortunate and stressful limo ride! Their photos were so beautiful and delivered to us less than 4 weeks after the wedding! Overall, they exceeded our expectations and were one of the best decisions we made! Daniel and I are so appreciative and wish you both all the best xo

Nicole & Jarred

Besides David and Belle being incredibly talented photographers who captured our special day better than we could have hoped, they are all round wonderful people who are guaranteed to bring joy and professionalism to whatever it is they’re shooting. Not only did they thoroughly discuss our needs beforehand to make sure we were 100% happy, their natural, non-invasive approach to photography produced gorgeous and genuine shots that we’ll treasure forever. We love ’em!

natalie&stefanportfolio-63

Natalie & Stefan

Team Origami! One of the best choices we ever made. Their attention to detail, creativity and passion for what they do, made it easy for us to decide on our photographers. Not only were they professional, but just great people in general. They made us feel so comfortable, and really went that extra mile to capture memorable moments on our special day. The albums are awesome, it’s like re-living the day all over again!

Love these guys and will be recommending them for sure! Thanks so much!!

weareorigami_huong_anthony_wedding_lr-508

Huong & Anthony

Anthony and I booked We are Origami in for our wedding straight after meeting Belle and Dave (literally the afternoon we met them). We had actually made a few enquiries with other photographers but never got around to meeting the rest. It was important to us that we got along with the photographers we chose. Dave and Belle were not only professional but instantly made us feel comfortable.

The whole process including our engagement shoot was a breeze. Not once did we stress about our photos since we were in such capable hands. We highly recommend doing an engagement shoot before the wedding. It helped loosen us up a lot for our wedding day and was a good way for us and Belle and Dave to get to know each other. The photos turned out great also!

Our wedding day went by so quick and we are ever so thankful that Belle and Dave were there to capture every moment of it. We were surprised at how quick the photos were completed. They turned out beautiful. We received comments from friends and family about how happy everyone looked in the photos. This is just proof as to what you can expect from We Are Origami – natural, unobtrusive, romantic photos.

Our heart felt thanks to both Belle and Dave again for being part of our dream team. We love your work and will continue to be fans of the work you produce.

xx. Huong & Anthony

Thank you Dave & Belle!! We can’t rave on enough about We Are Origami. We recently did our pre-wedding shoot and we got exactly what we wanted and more. Dave and Belle are fun, experienced and very professional photographers. The shoot was so easy to do. Dave and Belle made the experience highly enjoyable and even gave us tips on taking the best photos on our wedding day. And to top it off, we were mind blown with how amazing the photos all turned out. THANKS AGAIN GUYS!!! We’ve known you from the start and would have no hesitations in recommending you to all our family and friends xx Steph & James

Belle and Dave did an amazing job on our wedding photos – we’ve received so many compliments from our family & friends and would definitely recommend them! They are both incredibly funny, easy going people and very professional and accommodating; making the wedding day and photography sessions easy and entertaining. The online album that we received afterwards was a great bonus for us to share with family & friends and I loved the little instagram “sneak peeks” that they posted straight after the wedding! Thanks guys!

Ana & Andrew

Thanking the lucky stars that we found the best team EVER to capture both our engagement and wedding day. They made the choice for the perfect photographer SO easy and when you meet Dave, you will know exactly what I’m talking about. He is truly AMAZING and words just cannot express how diligent, creative, efficient and talented he is. Even the most organised bride will be wowed by Dave, from the very first initial meeting to the last ‘Thankyou and Goodnight!’. His attention to detail is just on point and we could not be happier with how the photos turned out. Dave has such a fantastic positive attitude, always making sure we were comfortable and relaxed, it was like hanging out with an old friend. Our bridal party and friends could not praise him enough, as we all had such a blast! Thankyou for being open to all our suggestions in personalising our wedding and we would absolutely recommend your team in a heartbeat.

Thankyou Dave & Team for your wonderful work! You guys are amazing. Cant wait for our Trash The Dress Shoot HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. No seriously, contact me. LOL

Kae & Joe

Perfect photographers to capture our perfect day!

Joe and I couldn’t have asked for anything more from We Are Origami…

They were easy going from the first consultation and knew exactly what we wanted which they captured.

On the day, we (and our bridal party) had so much fun with them and they got lots of natural pictures which we love.

The best part was viewing the pictures and picking the photos for our album which was so easy! Everything was done online and we shared all our photos with our friends and family conveniently. Our album was complete in no time!

We cannot thank you enough for all your hard work! We really appreciate it!

Thanks Belle and David!

Lin & Robert

David was our photographer and was an absolute pleasure to work with. He is super fun / professional / talented / awesome / passionate / very friendly and very humble. David was very helpful on how to pose, where the best locations were, and the results were incredible. The entire set was natural and beautiful. There was no awkwardness when taking photos.

Everyone who has seen the photos and the beautiful slideshow they put together has been beyond impressed. We’re thankful to David & Belle for their talents and their ease. I would refer them to anyone looking for talented people to not only capture a meaningful moment but to create beautiful memories.
David is truly a master. All of his technique and skills is essential for those photos. We feel so lucky to have him to be our wedding photographer.

I would highly recommend David & Belle to any couple that is planning to get married. My husband and I will cherish our photos for a lifetime!
Don’t hesitate, the money you spend will be totally worth!

Netty & Carlos

The Origami team is made up of genuinely warm and wonderful people who are incredibly passionate about what they do. We are so glad to have chosen them for our engagement shoot among the many Sydney photographers we shortlisted. From the first contact, they have been extremely responsive and helpful. We were initially quite nervous about the shoot but David and Kwa’s easy-going and happy personalities eased all the tensions and made the shoot so fun, relaxed and enjoyable. It was just like hanging out with friends. The pictures turned out beautiful! We absolutely can’t stop looking through them.

Thank you Belle, David and Kwa for helping us capture these lovely memories that we will enjoy for years to come. We certainly hope that there will be opportunities to engage you guys as our photographers for other milestones in our lives =)

bridget&mikewedding-72

Bridget & Mike

What every bride wants is a professional photographer to capture their personal day – perfectly. You need to trust them, feel comfortable with them, make sure they move things along and are almost unseen. David at Origami exceeds all these expectations and adds fun activities to the normally posed shots, has a great personality and is very flexible. His passion makes you feel as though you’re the only wedding he is working on. Then you see the photos and are blown away by the professionalism, breadth of images, capturing of real moments, and stunning imagery. His style is real, detailed and stunning and also reflects the couples personality. I would always recommend David at Origami for any photography work as you will be amazed.

anita&robwedding-416

Anita & Rob

Our lovely friend recommended We Are Origami Photography to us after many attempts of looking for ‘the Photographer” to shoot our engagement and wedding. We are so happy to have made the perfect decision as Dave has not only produced incredible and high quality photos for us, they were of course no doubt fun to work with. They are a friendly bunch who made us feel comfortable and we have had a lot of laughs together as friends! We acknowledge that amongst other things Dave and his team have done for us, they went through great lengths to help us, particularly with transportation on our big day – we cannot thank you enough! And Dave stayed throughout the entire night of our wedding.

Once again thanks Dave and team!! We’ll definitely recommend you to our friends when they tie the knot!

anna&victorengagement-16

Anna & Victor

Victor and I would like to say a big thank you for being our photographers for both our wedding day and engagement shoot. You made the experience very fun and relaxing and the photos turned out great!

From our very first meeting, we knew that your team had something very special to offer. You both were very friendly and professional and unlike our other wedding vendors, we were treated more like friends rather than customers.

Both Victor and I, as well members of our bridal party have been in a number of wedding shoots and by far your one was the most relaxing and FUN! We particularly loved the games that you arranged for us to play after the ceremony which helped lightened the mood of the long morning and helped us relax and reenergise us for the reception.

The photos and the slideshow you produced were AMAZING! Victor & I couldn’t be happier with the final product. We have heard stories from friends that some photographers may take up to 3-6 months to get the photos and we were extremely surprised that you told us that they were ready after 6 weeks!

Again, Thank you so much for being our photographers! We loved the unique experience that you offered and we couldn’t be happier with the photos. Looking forward to catching catch up with you both over dinner or coffee soon.

Elsa & Son

We originally chose We Are Origami Photography based solely on their online portfolio, and because they offered unlimited wedding day coverage. They exceeded our expectations and ensured our day was beautifully captured. They worked seamlessly with our videographers, and were there from start to finish – about 15 hours on a day that reached 38 degrees.

We would highly recommend We Are Origami Photography based on the quality of photos we received. Just as importantly, they were a joy to communicate with, before, during and after the wedding, and were professional and responsive. Our special day went by so quickly, but thanks to the We Are Origami Photography team we have a wonderful set of photos I’m sure we will continue to look at with joy and thanksgiving.

ann&rajportfolio-58

Ann & Raj

Saying thank you doesn’t seem to be enough to truly reflect how we feel about the way We Are Origami Photography captured our special day.

We Are Origami Photography were our top preference for wedding photographers and we were so relieved when they said they were available on our wedding day. From the first meeting, Dave was only too happy to share his expert tips and pointers for dealing with the wedding planning process and made us feel comfortable every step of the way. Dave’s attention to detail, how easy it was to deal with him and the super-fast turn-around of some sneak peak photos the very next business day make him, we believe, in a league all of his own.

For those of you considering Dave, he is a photo ninja on your day. He is unobtrusive and you get your photos back and go “Wow, I don’t remember even seeing him there”. AMAZING, particularly for those who may be camera shy. He truly does know how to capture true emotion in photo form. Every precious memory from our wedding was captured to perfection and we are so thrilled with the results.

Thank you again Dave, Belle and Koala. Our friends have already started booking you for their upcoming weddings and we will be recommending you to anyone else who will listen!

Highly, highly recommended!

Mui & John

I honestly wouldn’t know how i would get through the day without the support of We Are Origami on our Wedding day. Being a nervous bride and having to do a very traditional Asian tea ceremony, they were so comforting and so fun that it really calmed me down. During the day they were very entertaining, supportive, helpful, comforting, professional, laid back and fun! The photo shoot was really a highlight of our day! You guys really live up to your name “Creative” and you were nothing short!  I am so so so happy and thrilled that we used Origami to capture our special day! Their photojournalistic approach made us sometimes forget that there were camera’s around! The photos truly depict how talented this team is. 

To the We Are Origami Photography team: while I type this teary-eyed, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for being there for us on our Wedding day. I am so happy I stumbled upon you on google. BEST THING EVER! 

Thank you from the bottom of mine and John Kan’s heart.

When we first met David and his team their genuine dedication, creativity, and love for their work made it easy for us to choose the team at We Are Origami Photography to capture our special day. We trusted that they would reflect our personalities in their photos and they did not let us down! The guys came up with great ideas for our engagement shoot and their enthusiasm produced a really fun afternoon and some amazing shots. The pictures from our wedding day were superb and we could not have been happier with the result. All of the photos are even more special after being produced in amazing handcrafted albums, yet another mark of David and his team’s focus on quality!

Thank you David and the team at We Are Origami Photography!

julianna&justinengagement-088

Julianna & Justin

Julianna and I were very fortunate to have the team at Origami as our photographers on our wedding day.

David and Joe are incredibly creative and talented individuals who are very passionate about what they do. They are also absolute ninjas when it comes to taking candid shots that capture the mood of any moment.

Having seen the final photos now, we’re extremely happy with how they managed to capture all the fun, excitement and silliness from the day.

Not only did they keep things fun while remaining extremely professional, they also did everything to help out in any way they could. Even something as simple as a glass of water – funny story, I made an innocent comment about wanting some water before the Bride walked down the aisle and suddenly panicked calls of “Oh my god! We can’t start the ceremony! The Groom needs water!” spread like wildfire amongst the guests before Joe saved the day. Thanks Joe!

Little things like this just showed that the boys really cared about making sure the day went as smoothly as possible so that Julianna and I could really enjoy ourselves and this is why we dubbed them unofficial members of the Bridal Party of Awesomeness!

Even when things didn’t run quite to plan (at no fault of their own) they were easily able to adjust their schedule on the fly and still make the most of the situation.

After a long 12 hour day the boys were still smiling and enthusiastic and even had the energy to join us on the dance floor. Legends!

I’d like to end by saying that David and Joe are just downright awesome guys and we were honoured to share our special day with them.

Book them now. You won’t regret it!
