Dario was a stand out when researching wedding photographers due to his extensive experience in this industry. We knew he was the one upon meeting him as we felt immediately at ease and his work spoke volumes of his talent. On our wedding day Dario took incredible photos, a mixture of candid photographs and some amazing posed shots which have documented our magical day perfectly. He also has a wonderful attitude and great sense of humour ensuring many laughs throughout the day. We are so happy with his work and would highly recommend his services to anybody wanting an exceptional photographer for their big day.

Thanks again Dario!

We knew the search for our perfect wedding photographer was over when we saw Dario’s portfolio. The photos of our wedding day were utterly spectacular thanks to his precision, creativity and professionalism.  He perfectly captured some of the most important moments in our lives and was a wonderful addition to our special day.

Dario was a pleasure to work with. He tailored the quote and arrangements for the day to our specific needs and was professional and quick to respond to all emails and phone calls. This makes a big difference to stress levels when organising a large number of different suppliers for a wedding!On the day Dario was punctual and organised. He made the preparation fun for the boys with photos being taken over a calming ale in the Rocks and the walk to the venue. Importantly he made me, the nervous and emotional bride, laugh and relax into the day.We now have hundreds of digital photos and a very professional book which was organised and printed in record time! We would highly recommend Dario Gardiman as your photographer to help capture the memories of your special day. Please feel free to contact us if you would like further details at .

Dario- Just at Mum and Dad’s talking through the day with everyone. I wanted to say a large “Thank You” for making Angela and Mick’s day so memorable. Totally enjoyed the laughs and your professionalism. You put every ones nerves at ease. Thanks again. You were awesome.

Dario was such a great photographer. Normally I would feel really uncomfortable. Dario put me completely at ease, and my smiles naturally radiate with his professional attitude. The proofs we have seen were absolutely amazing.

Tess & I would like to thank you for our wonderful wedding photographs.

We appreciate the way you took the time to get to know us beforehand and understand what we were after on our wedding day, and for finding a beautiful location that will always be special to us for the rest of our lives.

We love the balance of traditional portraits with candid snaps; some of our favourite photos are of tiny moments you managed to see and capture without disturbing any of our guests.

We especially appreciate your generosity in sharing your original camera files, and also for our unexpected photo montage – a great way for us to show off our Blu Ray player to friends and family!

We’re glad we trusted our photographs to someone so professional and easy to work with.  We have already recommended you to several friends and will continue to do so,

Thanks and best wishes
