    The quality is absolutely extraordinary but even more so are the prices.

    Albums of this quality usually run into thousands of dollars!

    Ours start from just $99!

    With options including Metal, Canvas, Acrylic & Fine-Art Papers, your images will be turning heads in no time.

  • Photo Editing & Retouching

    Skillful retouching is what turns a photo into an image.

    It should not be confused with the standard adjustments for hue, saturation, tone and density as these should be applied as a matter of course during the imaging workflow. Examples of custom-editing would include artistic decisions regarding the colour palette used, any black & white treatments, object removal (e.g. flies on a persons face) and selectively highlighting or subduing areas within an image.

    In the right hands, it's this level of retouching that produces those head-turning images that really "pop".
    As well as with our own images, Distinctive Photography provides a standalone retouching & editing service.
    Have an images that needs that finishing touch but don't quite know how? Maybe you need to an heirloom photograph restored to it's original glory. Let us work the magic for you…contact us today

What Others Say About Us

Elle & Josh R. 07-2015
(via EasyWeddings.com)

"Joel was an amazing and professional photographer. I felt like he really listened to what I was after on the day and made everyone feel comfortable. He took us to a spot I didn't even know existed for some great photos!"

Renae & Phil - 2014

"A wedding is a very special event in one's life. I've never considered how important a photographer is on the day. Much more so than the cake or the catering or music. Every bride knows how quickly the day goes and to have those memories on the day, captured, is priceless. I never knew Joel was there taking the photos and he listened to what I wanted and followed through with professionalism. I would highly recommend him to anyone - especially weddings!"

Nicole & Zac - 2014
