We were planning our wedding in just under four months and we had not put that much thought into booking a professional photographer for the day. However, once deciding it was a good idea it was clear who the only choice could be. We knew of Mitch’s work and loved the simplicity with which he captured moments of such complex emotional value. We are not much for posing and didn’t want all those tacky, structured and sterile wedding photos. With Mitch, it was as if he was not in the room but later on we had images of everything and everyone so that we could basically relive the night in a slideshow of the photos he took. He put us totally at ease in his understanding of what we were after and love his choices for locations for our couples photos. If you would like to have a picture that says a thousand words and not a thousand pictures that all say the same – Mitch is your guy. Thank you- Kylee and Sean Ironside
My wife Claire & I heard of Mitch Carlin through friends who had also enlisted him to capture their wedding photos. On meeting Mitch, our minds were put at ease with his chilled vibe, whilst his enthusiastic approach to his art made us both very interested to see how his touch would help eternalise our magical day. Mitch was like a ninja in colour, by which I mean, he was in front of us with his camera capturing moments the whole day but we didn’t notice him, he let the day unfold by itself & didn’t try to force anything. This guy is dedicated & really puts in the effort to give you a polished product, he edits each photo individually with artistic flair that compliments each shot.
Above all Mitch is a genuine, hard-working, professional bloke. He’s got a gift for photography & I can only see his style evolving exponentially with every new piece of work he puts his hands to. I would, without hesitation, recommend him to any other couple looking for unique & treasured wedding photos!-Ryan and Claire Hancock
Every couple has different expectations but, for us, the photos were one of the most important elements of our wedding day. Not only is it a way of capturing our special day forever but it’s a way to show our personalities through the lens of a camera.Mitch understood all of this and, with his amazing talent to be in the right place at the right time, captured so many beautiful moments. From the first contact Mitch put in so much effort, scoping locations and dealing with many persistent emails/texts/telephone calls from an anxious bride-to-be. Then, on the day, Mitch was everywhere capturing fleeting emotions and all the tiniest details that would have been overlooked and quickly forgotten. Mitch caught the ‘REAL’ memorable moments, nothing staged and uncomfortable, just us and the memories that will last a lifetime. Many photographers arrive at the reception venue and take a staged photo of cutting the cake before quickly leaving. To our amazement Mitch stayed on taking photos and we have many happy snaps of us and our guests as we celebrated well into the night. We can recommend Mitch to everyone needing a photographer for any occasion! He gave his everything on our special day and we really appreciate the results of all his hard work. -Tim & Jody Travers
Picking a wedding photographer is as hard as picking a dress. Long after the day is done all that you have are the memories and the photos. So you can imagine flying a photographer across the other side of the world to Vegas with a diverse group of people was a tough discussion. After meeting Mitch we both walked away not only knowing we had found the right guy for the job but knew he would capture the moments of our special day. Mitch was always professional and made everyone feel more than comfortable in front of the camera. His creative talent and eye for detail turns a photo into a work of art. He was always good for a laugh and captured those natural shots that everyone wants from their wedding. Looking through our photos it tells a wonderful story of our day from start to finish. Going into this we had a wedding photographer and coming out we not only have absolutely stunning photos but we have made a great friend. -Nath & Loz X
Mitch is such a rad dude and takes the most amazing photos! He was incredibly patient among the chaos on the day – as we had a completely DIY wedding at home which was stressful enough. Our photos never looked contrived and he captured really honest representations of our wedding. We are so happy every time we look at them because Mitch captured real moments and a true, authentic picture of us as a couple. He is so easy going, has amazing artistic vision, and was lovely to meet up with. We found him to be pro active and involved in every step of the process, and he even managed to get amazing photos and hunt out locations in the face of bad weather. Mitch just got us; what we were trying to do and what we wanted from our wedding photos. He’s a great dude and we feel really blessed he was part of our wedding. We couldn’t be happier!-Ryan and Beci
We can’t begin to thank you enough for the awesome job you did in capturing every special moment from our wedding day. We couldn’t be happier with the hundreds of photos, the hundreds of memories that we will cherish for a lifetime.Throughout the whole process, your relaxed approach, your professionalism and enthusiasm for your work made our wedding all the more enjoyable.We are honoured to have had you as our photographer and we truly appreciate your efforts.Thanks again for the memories Mitch, and we sincerely wish you all the future success that you deserve. Ryan & Michelle “Mitch is more than a photographer, he is a story teller. Not only did he provide us with beautiful images but also with an amazing experience. He blended landscapes, love and laughter into creative collections of wedding moments. His professionalism, level of skill and expertise was simply outstanding. His work is unique and non-traditional and he captured the heart, the excitement and the emotions of our day. Thanks Mitch- Ben & Ursh
Our experience with having Mitch photograph arguably the most important day of our lives to date was amazing. Throughout the entire process - from the very first communication up until the 'unveiling' of our shots, Mitch was the ultimate professional. His communication was always effective and timely, which put us at complete ease in moments where one could be susceptible to stress. We ended up with so many (really, SO MANY) beautiful photos from the day and night which really reflected the fact that Mitch was everywhere, without you even realising. The quality and style of the photos also proved that Mitch listened carefully and took our requests and ideas on board, resulting in end products that we were (and still are) so very happy with. Mitch takes his work so seriously and working with someone who cares about capturing beautiful moments as much as you do is so satisfying. No review can really do Mitch's work justice as his photographs and interactions go beyond what can be conveyed in writing. The best way to fully understand and appreciate what Mitch does is to see his work and experience working with him.- Marnie and AJ
We just wanted to say a huge thank you for capturing our special day in every way we imagined and much, much more. Your professional and relaxed manner was very comforting all day and was a absolute pleasure to have you at our wedding.

Thanks again Mitch we will highly recommend you to everyone- Brooke and James
We just wanted to say a very BIG thank you for our AMAZING wedding photos!!! We couldn't be happier.
Our family and friends were also very impressed by your obvious talent. Your friendly and professional work style was a perfect fit for us and it was an absolute pleasure having you there to share our special day. You certainly captured the emotion in every shot and every beautiful moment from morning till night.
You did an amazing job choosing such gorgeous locations for our bridal party shots but as you know the ones we were most looking forward to seeing were our sunset shots and you certainly exceeded our expectations! I don't know what else to say but SIMPLY STUNNING!!!!!
Thank you again for providing us with a lifetime of memories of a day that went by so quickly.
We are so overwhelmed by how amazing these photos are. The slideshow surprised us and was such a joy to watch.
We honestly can't thank you enough for everything you've done. The photos,the organising of the day, the professionalism and the way you treated us as a couple. You were so laid back, yet hard working and you made us feel so relaxed and comfortable. We are so grateful for every single photo.
Thank you for allowing us enjoy your talent and for providing us with such a fantastic memory to keep.
We are recommending you to every one we know and can't speak of you highly enough. Not that we ever intend to get married again, but if we did, we'd chose you again and again haha.
All the best and we hope to see you at our friends and families weddings in the future.
Wow! We Have just received our wedding photos and are BLOWN away with how Mitch has captured our day. As they say- a picture speaks a thousand words... and in every photo we are US. I can't remember laughing so much but the photos were a perfect reminder of just how happy we were. From start to finish Mitch was a pleasure to deal with and we knew from his cool calm demeanour we would be comfortable sharing our day with him. Our photos aren't JUST photos to us.. they more like the an artwork of our souls.. He truly is a master of his field and anyone who wants all
the magical moments of their day to be captured by a professional with no stress
then Mitch is your man- Shaye and Kayne

I would have no hesitation in recommending you to EVERYONE!
You made everything so easy and fun! Thanks for a brilliant experience.
Thanks again,- Renee & Pete 🙂
OH, PS. The cute wooden box and the USB are bloody lovely
Mitch your photos of Renee and pete's wedding are amazing. You captured their happiness perfectly. Every photo of Renee and pete is a reflection of them, from the tears of joy on Petes face as he sees Renee for the first time to that look on renee's face at the reception , when I think pete was talking about limiting something.
Your work is a pleasure to look at. I have your photos on my laptop and I would look at them every week, they bring me joy.
Gold Coast Wedding Photographers Michael + Cassie High school sweet hearts that were exactly that, the two sweetest of hearts! Gushing with honest love and pure happiness, this day was filled with wide-cheeked smiles and
