There’s invites, placecards, ceremony programs, signage, photobooth backdrops and props…the list goes on and on.

Alice and Dave recently moved from Sydney from Melbourne, but the hip couple ventured back to Sydney for their skyline shoot. They bought along an original brownie camera as a prop and just had a great time with each other.
