Where are you based and what areas do you service?

We are based in Newcastle and travelling to the Sydney, Newcastle, Hunter Valley and  Wollongong areas is our way of spreading the ‘Vintage-Photobooth-Love’.

We’ve also been known to venture into the country towns of NSW.

How early should couples book with you? 

The earlier the better to avoid missing out on your date as there are only 52 weekends in a year. Being the only one of its kind in Australia, the ‘deluxe’ photobooth is very popular. We already have bookings for weddings that are two years away!

Why do you think a photo booth is such an important part of a couple’s big day? 

Believe it or not, your wedding day goes so quickly! Nothing captures the candid and unpredictable memories of a wedding in the way a vintage photobooth does. Behind the curtain is an intimate little space where laughs are spontaneous and a bit of natural magic happens. As you eagerly wait for your photo-strips to process, time slows down for a change.

 

What advice do you have for couples when they are thinking about having a photo booth? 

As with most things, you get what you pay for. We have positioned ourselves as a unique and classy boutique vintage photobooth service who offers only the very best in terms of quality, aesthetics, staff and your experience as we know there are no second chances when it comes to the most important day of your life.

What is your favourite thing about photo booths? 

The timeless way that these fleeting moments are developed into photographs that act as lifetime reminders of the day for the married couple. In years to come, the photographs are found in drawers and albums in a way that a digital file is never stumbled upon. They’re everlasting.

 

Do you have a favourite photo booth picture?  What is the story behind it?

I’ve been documenting my life in vintage photobooths for 22 years now and have literally thousands to choose from. I’d say my favourite photobooth strip is when I was 15 years old and I used a photobooth for the first time. I was sitting beside my best friend and we hopped behind a curtain and the photobooth flashed away. Before a hidden camera we pulled faces like we’d seen in the movies. Then came the anticipation of waiting for the results to be developed and delivered.  The photobooth experience was exhilarating. It was before the digital age and so you never knew how the photo was going to turn out. I loved the unpredictability. I still have the photos and I treasure the power of them to trigger my memories of that day. Obviously, I became somewhat addicted.

Candice Campbell Photography

 

Can you tell us a bit about Candice Campbell Photography?
Candice Campbell Photography is a boutique wedding photographer run solely by Candice herself. I specialise in quirky and unique, vintage styled weddings and have a huge passion for Rockabilly weddings, as I live my life as a rockabilly pin up girl myself. I pride myself on providing couples with high quality pieces of art for an affordable price. I am a romantic at heart and absolutely live to celebrate the love of couples who love vintage quirks as much as I do!

Do you travel for weddings?
I sure do! I have clients booked in for interstate as well as international weddings. Wherever you would like me to go, I am happy to go!

 

How would you describe your style?
I would describe my style as unique, fine art, creative and fun. I am from a portrait painting background, so see everything as an opportunity for beautiful portraits. I have been told by all my couples how fun and relaxed I make everything on location as I am never up in anyone’s face with my camera. I like to keep everything as natural and relaxed as I possibly can, so as to create the most memorable moments for you to keep for a lifetime.

How early should couples book with you?
Couples should book with me quite early. Since I personally shoot every single wedding, I am limited to the number of bookings I can take on. I generally book out 12-18 months in advance.

 

Why do you think photography is such an important part of a couple’s big day?
I believe photography is an important part of the day as after all the delicious cake has been eaten and all the lovely personalised cocktails have been drunk out of the sparkling mason jar mugs, besides your memories and wedding rings, the photographs are the only tangible reminder of your day you have left. I see photography as an heirloom you can pass down to your future children and grand children. You want them to be able to see and feel the magic of the day through the photos. Wedding photography is something I think every couple should look at quite seriously.

What advice do you have for couples when they are thinking about their photography?
Make sure you choose a photographer who has a style AND a personality to match with. Be sure to sit with photographers you are considering, look through their products, touch and feel the quality, and also, just chat with them, get to know them and let them get to know you. If you find someone whose work you love and you just click with, it will be a perfect combination. The last thing you want is someone you feel uncomfortable with on the day, because remember, your photographer will be with you for the majority of the day, so you want someone who will be there as though they are one of the bridal party! Someone you can trust and have an absolute ball with!

What is your favourite thing about photography?
Everything! That’s a very hard question and I would probably end up going on all day. I love reading the light, I love that every wedding is so different, I love celebrating couples love, I love the adrenalin of the whole day, I love it all! I get as passionate and excited about the photos at the end of the day as what the couples do. I can honestly say there is nothing about photographing weddings I don’t enjoy. I lose myself in the moment when shooting a wedding, I wouldn’t want to be doing anything else.

 

Do you have a favourite wedding photograph?  What is the story behind it?
Oh I have so many favourite images it’s hard to narrow down. My favourites always tend to be ones where I’ve been faced with some sort of crazy weather condition that’s made me have to really adapt and think on my feet. My night photos of couples in the pouring rain are definitely favourites, but another favourite of mine is a beautiful image of a young couple in the fog. It was a terribly bleak rainy day for their wedding and their beach ceremony had to be moved indoors. After the ceremony we were going to spend the majority of the location time doing beach photos, but I noticed the clouds were sitting very very low over the mountains nearby. So we jumped in my car and made our way up there and created some really surreal images in a fog filled forest. It was very tricky to shoot in as all the fog was creating a fine mist on my camera. That’s probably my most favourite of all my favourite images!

What can couples expect when they visit your stand?
To be met with a bright bubbly Candice and her second shooter Merindah, in our stall that will be filled with beautiful albums, prints and lovely antique furniture. We will also have jars of chocolate and musk sticks, because who doesn’t love some good sweets while flicking through albums full of love!

 

Are you running any specials on the day?
I Sure am! I will have gift vouchers for the first 50 brides to visit me that allow them a choice of an engagement photo shoot or 2hrs of extra reception coverage, and I will also have a competition running for three brides to win $500 off the total cost of a wedding package!
