About Sunshine Weddings

We are Scott and Melissa, a down-to-earth husband and wife team of photographers, film-makers and wedding planners. Our weddings are relaxed and fun, letting you be yourselves and enjoy the moment.
After more than 10 years as photographers and film-makers with Sunshine Weddings, we began offering complete elopement wedding packages to provide a stress-free option for simple, authentic and intimate weddings.
Our elopement weddings are full of heart, humour and genuine care. We’re not a large studio with multiple photographers and freelancers. Instead we take only a small number of bookings each month, so all our couples become a part of the Sunshine family while we help you create an unforgettable experience.

“Thank you for playing a huge part in making our perfect day what it was. We really couldn’t be more grateful. From the week after we got engaged, you took our very vague description of ‘mountainous’ and kept us in the loop and excited, for what felt like simultaneously the longest and quickest year of our lives, to our big day – which was stress free and great fun. We are so glad we picked you to capture it for us. It is memories both us and our families will treasure forever. You guys are awesome and we can’t wait to catch up with you again in the future.”


“Thank you for making our dream wedding come true! We had so much fun and it was a day that we will always remember 🙂 The photos are breathtaking and have captured all the special moments throughout the day – our friends and colleagues are now considering an elopement too after seeing just the sneak peek photos!”


“The film and pictures are absolutely stunning! We REALLY could not have picked a better company to capture everything! We both got choked up watching it and we are seriously on our toes waiting to show our family! I really just can’t put into words how great all of your work is! Thank you so much! We really never would have thought that we would LOVE every single photo and the film (given we are both kind of self conscious!) But we really are SO excited to show everyone!”
