    We met with Wendy and talked about what we wanted for my son and daughter in laws wedding. Wendy provided examples of her work and was very keen to incorporate all our ideas. On the day she was not only incredibly professional but also blended in so well. She took some excellent photos and even managed to charm the camera shy. We had photos within days and got our album and photos sorted very quickly. I thoroughly recommend her to anyone who values a stress free special day.

    From the moment we met Wendy, we knew she was our wedding photographer. Her enthusiasm was matched with her professionalism, and her images were stunning. She was the bar we used to judge other photographers, but we didn't get nearly the same vibe that we got from Wendy. She kept in regular contact, making sure we understood the contract, going through to ensure she had a full and complete understanding of the photons we wanted on the day. At our wedding she not only was our photographer, but she became like family. Our guests even asked how she knew or was related to us! And giving the Mother of the Bride and Maid of Honour lessons on how to tie a corset-backed wedding dress I highly recommend Candid Photos to anyone that wants professional, stunning photos as well as someone who is both passionate, supportive and enthusiastic about what she does.

    Absolutely amazing. I don't know how she did it. She had the ability so spot an amazing shot setup behind and take a photo past 5 people without getting in anyone's way! She was an absolute delight, great photos, and a great, friendly person. Everyone at the reception loved her, in fact we're still friends to this day! And I cannot overstate how amazing her photos were. As far as I'm concerned, there are no other photographers worth mentioning!

    If you're looking for the whole package for a wedding and excellent value for money, Wendy is definitely the photographer you want. She is passionate about what she does and really puts in 110% effort. We got married on the hottest day in Orange's history back in February, where it sky rocketed to 41.c just as the 'outdoor' ceremony was about to begin. Wendy and Mark put in at least an 18+ hr day, capturing everything from start to finish, lugging around all of there equipment in extreme conditions and always put our needs first. The turn around on our photos and wedding book was extremely quick and we couldn't be happier with our decision to book Candid Photos of a Lifetime.

    I was absolutely impressed with the level of service, friendliness and professionalism that Candid Photos provided. We felt very comfortable having them being a part of our wedding day and captured the day remarkably. I can look through my album and feel the happiness and emotions from the images captured just like it was our wedding day all over again. I not only got an amazing photographer I also gained a friend.

    Wendy is AMAZING! She not only has excellent photography skills, but she has something very few professional photographers actually have -- an 'eye' for photography. She sees views, closeups, scenes that other photographers do not and captures the essence and emotion of the day. At Wendy's very first wedding as a photographer, we did not know what to expect and had another professional photographer there as well. We did not use any of the other photographer's work as Wendy's was SO much better. Her photos and her books, creatively and wonderfully made, are fabulous. She is professional, courteous and has a great personality; she is a joy to work with. She has attention to detail for all of her portraits, yet a wonderful creative talent that captures those great spontaneous moments. I strongly recommend her!!

    Candid Photos of a Lifetime were amazing! Wendy and Jesse arrived early in the day to capture all the fabulous pre-wedding pics, and kicked on until the end of the reception to capture all the fun! Wendy and Jesse were really energetic throughout the whole day and even got on the dance floor with their cameras-the guests loved it. Wendy was able to provide sneak peaks early the next morning, and has worked really hard to edit all the photos taken on the day , and did an awesome job preparing our photo book-thank you Candid Photos of a Lifetime!!

    Wendy did an amazing photography job on our special day. On the lead up to our wedding Wendy made sure she knew exactly what particular photos were the most important to capture and successed in getting those for us on the day. We are over the moon with our photo book that was included in our package. Everyone who has seen it absolutely loves it, it is such a neat and tidy idea as we don't have to worry about loosing any of our photos and it feels just like reading our own story book. Fantastic photos, beautiful photo book, great price and a very friendly photographer, Couldn't ask for anything more!

    Testimonials Submitted by the photographer

    Shannon Cluff,

    A huge thank you to Wendy Stewart at Candid Photos Of A Lifetime, for the amazing work she put into our special day. While Wendy had a reasonable price the service and quality we received was 5 stars. She started our special day with driving to our wedding location well before sunrise and capturing some breathtaking sunrise photos and then didn’t stop until we left our reception late that night. Her attention to detail and eye for capturing an emotion or many is incredible. We really couldn’t imagine getting through our day and photos without Wendy’s focus, personality and experience. Our photos were back in no time actually, while still on our honeymoon. Every emotion was captured through Wendy’s lens and after going through them tears of happiness were definitely shed. I would highly recommend Wendy to all of our friends and anybody in need of an affordable and professional photographer. Thank you again Wendy, both my wife and I could not be happier with our Wedding photos and the service you provided.

    Brittany (Orange),

    From our very first chat on the phone finding out costs and availability right up until our big way, Wendy at Candid Photos Of A Lifetime was incredibly helpful and able to give tips and ideas for what would work best for us. We are both young and were manoeuvring our way through planning a wedding with plenty of hurdles, neither of us had any idea what we were doing, didn’t know what we needed or wanted and Wendy was easy to chat to and within a couple of conversations we had a grasp of what we wanted and were happy to commit to having her as our photographer. Wendy understood our families issues, helped create a plan to avoid unnecessary issues, also to avoid those excessive photo requests from some over excited guests and made sure the day ran smoothly and without a hitch. She is a bubbly person who was extremely easy to get along with and delved into the theatrics of the getting ready process with us and made everyone laugh and relax. She went above and beyond for me to avoid drama and to remain happy and hydrated, Making the entire experience even better! With Wendy’s fun and relaxed attitude and helpful tips we were able to relax and organise our photos quickly and easily and we found that was an extreme help, especially when so many other things in the few weeks before the wedding became incredibly stressful. The photos she took are absolutely breathtaking and she made our day even more special with the wonderful memories and relaxed environment she created. Our guests and relatives constantly comment on the beauty of our wedding photos as well as the wonderful service Wendy provided to everyone on the day who wanted to have a special photo taken with us as well as the photos that were taken of special fixtures at our venue. Wendy also ensured that when editing and fixing up some photos that she was able to remove some “photo bombing” of crucial moments to capture the true wonder of those moments and that meant the world to us. We would highly recommend Wendy to anyone needing incredibly gorgeous photos at an absolutely wonderful price.

    Matthew & Jacinta,

    Planning a wedding can be a really hard task, especially when you are trying to find everything from photographers to a reception venue. My husband and I found it hard to find a photographer that was not only fantastic at their job but also great people to help make the day not so stressful. When we finally found Candid Photos Of A Lifetime we felt relieved that we had narrowed our search down. It wasn’t until we met Wendy and seen her work that we knew that she was the one we wanted. Not only is she an amazing photographer, she is an amazing person. We booked her straight away and didn’t once second guess our choice. We chose the Gold Package which was such great value but we also got a second photographer. Who happens to be Wendy’s Husband Mark, who we referred to as “The Ninja” because you never knew when you were being photographed. As the wedding got closer I started to stress that everything was not going to work as planned as I was having little things go wrong. Wendy was there for me to have someone to talk to and not just about the photography side of things. She really helped leading up to the big day to calm me down. Wendy and Mark were amazing they made me feel so relaxed and comfortable and I turned from being a camera shy girl to posing every chance I had. They captured every photo we asked for and many more and even got up and had a dance with myself and the bridal party. I do not have a single bad thing to say about Wendy and Mark they were amazing. The photos that we received were such high quality and everything we could have asked for. We have not only decided on our photographer for everything big thing to come but we also made great friends. If you are after a more personal touch and every little and big moment of your special day captured don’t look past Candid Photos Of A Lifetime you will not be disappointed. Thank you so much for being apart of our special day you guys were amazing.
