LOVE, Shyani & Simon

MEET SHYANI

I’m Shyani (pronounced ‘Sharni’), a
self-proclaimed multipotentialite. My eccentric collection of hobbies and interests include (and are not limited to) photography, lego, trivia and card games, learning Korean so I can watch Korean dramas without subtitles, cats, making novelty cakes, watercolour painting and restarting my diet and exercise goals every Monday. 

I studied psychology and law before discovering my passion for photography which quickly become an obsession and led me to achieving a Diploma of Professional Photography. Photography is my way of creating meaningful memories and connecting with amazing people. 

MEET SIMON

I’m Simon (pronounced ‘Simon’), a lover of sports, interior design and gardening. In a previous life, I worked as a freelance event/runway photographer for Harper’s BAZAAR, Cosmopolitan Australia, 2threads, Norton Rose Fulbright, Flaunt Marketing and a fashion photographer for Disney.   

I started my photography journey shooting nightclubs in Sydney's Kings Cross in the early 2000's before turning to Wedding and Portrait photography / videography, firstly with Simon Wilde Photography before joining forces with Shyani to create Moments Photography & Film.

Sometimes the connection and true emotion between family and friends cannot be expressed through words, but can be felt through the visual language of a photograph or video. We use as much natural light as possible to achieve bright light and airy images that have a romantic, timeless feel.

We observe and document the unique little details that took months of your preparation, the candid moments that show the romance, laughter and happiness between loved ones, and, together with beautiful portraits, we tell the narrative of your wedding day.

We feel so privileged to tell these stories through our lenses, creating beautiful memories that grow more valuable with each passing day. Say hello if you like our style and want us to be a part of your big day!

To learn more about our editing style we recommend reading how we achieve our light and airy look.

OUR STYLE

We're here as a resource beyond photography—whether you're looking for engagement session outfit recommendations, timeline advice, or vendor referrals.

Even if you're working with a wedding planner or you're planning a simple wedding, there are likely still a lot of moving pieces left leading up to your big day. We've photographed more than 150 weddings in the past few years and we're happy to share everything we've learned along the way! 

Wedding Advice

We’re big fans of engagement sessions for a few reasons. Not only do they allow you to get comfortable in front of the camera, they also give you the opportunity to showcase your personalities in a more casual setting that is significant to the two of you. 

Engagement sessions can take place anywhere from immediately following a proposal to just a few days before the wedding. We’ve found that there isn’t a “good” or “bad” time to take your photos. We normally plan sessions based on a particular “look” a couple has in mind, spring flowers for example, or based on schedules. 

Engagement Session

We check-in about two months before the wedding to start chatting about timeline specifics, special details, family formal shot lists, special traditions and anything else we should know about your big day. 

While we normally don't send this questionnaire until closer to the wedding, please don't hesitate to let us know if you have questions during the planning process!

Wedding Day Prep

It's finally here! The day the two of you say "I Do" and dance the night away surrounded by your family and friends. 

Just know we're excited to celebrate and capture your wedding day. It's going to be awesome.

The Big Day

You can expect your photos to be delivered via an online gallery within about three weeks of your wedding. At that time, we'll also send over details about preserving your images through prints and albums. 

We hope the relationship doesn't end after we deliver your photographs. We want to hear about the adventures of married life. And if you decide to have kids, we'd love to document your growing family.
