First Legal Gay Wedding in Sydney Australia

First Legal Gay Wedding in Sydney Australia



It’s been a privilege to photograph Australia’s one of the first legal gay wedding here in Sydney yesterday at Pier One. (Autograph by Marriott)

Beautiful grooms Ben & Michael who are the lucky winner of our “First Legal Gay Wedding in Australia” were surrounded by their loved ones.
It was emotional, a lot of laugh and lot of tears.
It was so emotional for me to photograph their wedding through the day even!

For the last 3 years, I have organised Marriage Equality Campaign Photo Shoots number of times and showing my support through my wedding photos.

So Team Gay Sydney Australia, Eikon Magazine, Kombi Wedding, Mr.Gay Australia had gathered to throw a competition to celebrate when Same Sex Marriage law passes back in January 2017. 

So yesterday was the day!

I have always wanted to give back something to my LGBTQI community in Australia.
I feel that LGBTQI community helped me to feel comfortable being who I am today, not pretended to be who I am supposed to be.

So I am doing my bit to show my support and celebrate for Ben and Michael with Sydney’s top wedding suppliers.

Congratulations Michael & Ben!


Congratulations Australia!

How does your wedding photography packages work?

How does your wedding photography packages work?

“How does your wedding photography packages work?” 
This might be one of your questions that you may have when you choose your wedding photographers for your big day.

My wedding packages are affordable, super simple and straight forward. No catch or hidden prices that you have heard from your friends or family.

Before I explain my wedding photography packages, this is one thing that you should know about my packages.

That is ” You don’t need to choose your package when you book me.” 
In fact, you only need to decide your package three weeks before your wedding date.

So please secure me first, so I won’t book any other jobs on the day, in case your agenda changes last minute. This way, I can be flexible to your requests even on your wedding day.

So now, let’s talk about my packages. You will see two different packages with different hours.

1: Data Only Packages:
This one is super simple.
If you would like to receive your jpeg images on USB, please choose this package.
This packages are affordable for everyone.
Price ($1900 – $2900 depends on how many hours you would like me to photograph your event)

2: Complete Packages: 
The name of the packages explains all.
You will receive your jpeg images on USB just like Data Only Packages.
You will also receive:
1 x Premium Highlight Slide show
1 x Deluxe Flush Mounted Leather Album (20 Pages)
Price: ($28000 – $3800 depends on how many hours you would like me to photograph your event) 

Let’s say, I start at 2pm at your hotel room (Getting ready) and I stay till the end of the reception at midnight. That is 10 hours. So you can choose either 10 hours of Data Only Package or Complete Package.

Once again, you can decide your package later. 

If you like my work and packages that I offer, please contact me ASAP as most of my weekends will be booked out 6 months to 1 year in advance, especially Sydney’s spring and summer time.

Please follow us on Instagram for our latest photos!

Yesterday was such an emotional day for most of Australians.

Same Sex Marriage low has passed!!!  What a fantastic day!

For the last 2 years, I (Katsu) have been pushing for Australian Marriage Equality through my photos.  Being as a gay wedding photographer myself based in Sydney, Australia,
I have always wanted to do something for my LGBTQI community that helped me though some hard time.

Same Sex Marriage law has passed! – Katsu Nojiri Photography

I have marched the rallies, I have signed the petitions, I have tried to educated people around me but it was not enough I thought.

One day I had to ask myself, “I have been photographing weddings for the last 20 years, but how many Gay & Lesbian weddings here in Sydney? ”

” Only a few..”

People still have have their commitment ceremonies but it’s just not quite the same.

Then I thought, “How about I started taking photos of Sydney’s happy same sex couples?
Then show my work to people out there?”

“Photography gives strong impacts to the people and tell stories.”

This is when I have started taking photos of Gay & Lesbian couples and people love it!

I wanted to do my bit which is photography. Supporting our gay community in Australia through my work.

Once again, WHAT A FANTASTIC DAY it was yesterday! December 7th 2017!

Lunch Wedding is a new trend?

Lunch Wedding is a new trend?

I have noticed that It seems quite popular to have “Lunch time wedding” these days.

Like today, my clients Rob & Maya has their wedding ceremony started at 10am at The Centennial Park followed by the lunch reception party at Centennial Homestead.

When I first received my first “Lunch Wedding” inquiry last year, I thought, “Oh, that’s unique” But these days, I am getting more and more. It must be a new trend to have a wedding on Saturday or Sunday around the lunch time.

I guess that it’s make sense for everybody. A lot of people are off, kids are fresh, and elderly won’t get too tired. Plus people eat or drink less during the day, so it will be cheaper to hire the venue, also.

Since Europe and USA has not been so safe to travel, I have noticed that more tourists are in Sydney and more Japanese couples are here to get married!

My wedding booking for next year has been super fast this year. My Saturdays are almost all booked out until March next year 2018.

If you are planning to have your wedding in Sydney or NSW have not booked your photographer yet, please let me know early!

Wedding planning in Langkawi

Wedding planning in Langkawi 

I had an opportunity to photograph another wedding in Langkawi, Malaysia last weekend.

Although I am usually based in Sydney Australia, I travel around Asia (Mainly Malaysia, Thai and Japan) between May to August to photograph weddings when Sydney’s cold in winter.  Yes, I am not a winter person and trying to avoid as much as I can.

I am actually writing this blog from my rented apartment in Kuala Lumper in Malaysia.

My Australian client Bec and Dave booked me over a year ago through my previous client (bride) who is mother of two now.

Since both Bec and Dave are from Sydney, I have met them at the cafe in Surry Hills to discuss their wedding in Langkawi this time last year. I remember that they have asked me where is the good place to get married in Langkawi then. 
They have just started to plan their wedding there.

Since most of people get married on the private beach or pool deck area at the resort hotel, I have recommended them to have their ceremony and the reception party at 5 stars hotel there.

My favourite has to be Andaman Resort where I always stay when I visit there for holiday and wedding photos.

Their hotel resort is in the jungle and you will see a lot of animals like monkeys, flying fox, big lizards or hawks. Their hotel is massive and it’s a full of nature.
Of course the ocean is right in front of you and the sunset there is just stunning!

Langkawi is only one hour flight from KL.

Their wedding was on Saturday and I arrived their Friday morning, so I can enjoy beautiful island before their wedding day.

We had a quick chat at the hotel lobby and make sure what to photograph on the day.
Bec & Dave gave me the agenda, so I will know what’s happening on their wedding day. 

It’s gong to be a big day!!!!!
