Who We Are

Desiren Photography & Video is a boutique Wedding & Portrait Photography studio, also offering Video, specialising in capturing people. Located on High St in Northcote we photograph both on location and in our contemporary studio depending on the feel you're after. We have been capturing people since 2001 and over the years have confirmed the fact that this is what we were meant to do. With a love of art along with simply hanging out with people, Weddings and casual Portrait shoots are the perfect marriage.

In a nutshell we take images of people at their best, taking into consideration their personalities and vision. Couples who book us for their Wedding or Portrait shoot are usually after a casual and fun experience, open to direction from us to experiment and create unique pieces of art.

What separates us as a studio is the experience we create. From our initial meeting, we'll be taking notes and discussing your day in detail, so at the very least you'll walk away (whether you decide to book us or not) with a structured plan for the day, from timing to locations, tips and ideas. Once you have confirmed you'd like us to be part of your celebrations, we then discuss whether any venues need booking and get together a few weeks before the Wedding Day to finalise a running schedule, including plan B's if needed. A day or two after the Wedding Day, we'll post a handful of our favourite images on social media which is great for you and your family & friends to check out straight after the Wedding. Between a week and a half and two weeks after we'll contact you with details of how to check out all of your images in your very own private online gallery. Albums are then designed shortly after so our couples could potentially have everything printed and picked up between three and four months from the Wedding Day - which is pretty rare for a Wedding Photographer.

Being of European background ourselves, we have extensive experience in capturing culturally diverse Weddings, for e.g. a variety of European, Middle Eastern, Asian and African. We love having the opportunity to see and experience how other cultures celebrate their Weddings. With over 80% of our business coming from recommendations, we place the highest importance on customer satisfaction, which is also demonstrated in our Testimonials. Our style is based on simplicity - timeless images portraying love, fun and a bit of fashion.
