Photography By Kieron Nolan

Kieron Nolan is based in Belair, and has had the opportunity to photograph weddings in some fantastic locations across South Australia. Couples love the way he makes them feel relaxed while still able to take great shots. He works hard all day, ensuring all aspects are captured, from the bride being made up and fussed over in the morning to the speeches and first dance, meaning all the 'real' moments are photographed.

The materials he uses are of extremely high class, from large lay-flat albums to using a professional craftsman to frame prints – meaning you get something special that will look good for years to come. Managing large groups of people is no problem, meaning beautiful formal shots can be arranged with minimal fuss, especially helpful when many of your guests are older relatives or children! 

Then when it comes time for more intimate shots, he really does capture who you are. If you want elegant poses, he will capture them. If you want to climb up a tree, he'll give you a hand up! And if you just want a break before the reception, he understands when it's time to step back and let you simply enjoy your day.
