Our Team

Hi guys! 

 

Welcome to Mitcha photography. I’m Niki the owner and photographer here. 

 

I found myself in love with photography when I was studying Media & Art at university many years ago in Bangkok, Thailand where I’m from. I was studying all kinds of photography processing from scratch with old vintage film cameras and cleaning photos in the dark room by myself until the digital camera hit processing to make it easier for our lives. I never stop learning, photography is like the air that I breathe.

 

Looking back 13 years ago, I had an opportunity to start my life in Adelaide and to open a small studio behind my mother in law’s store in Hyde Park (Rapsimo Bridal Wear) where I started with portrait and family sessions until I photographed one of my family member’s weddings. To see the love, emotion and connection between the couple through the photos without having to explain with words. This captured my heart so much. From that time, I decided to switch to wedding photography, which I love the most.

 

What is the style of my wedding photography? 

 

I love to be able to capture your special moments without you noticing that I’m there. I like to hide behind some trees to get your candid reactions, the emotions of your guests and let you enjoy the ceremony as much as you can. I’m happy to take control if you need and guide you for poses and will make sure that you’re comfortable on front of my camera. I have been to more than 50 wineries, beaches, and places in the hills in Adelaide so if you need my advice I’m here for you. 

 

My editing style, due to my background in film photography, I have a love of the natural colour process, raw and sweet moment and even unfocused shots. I love colour photos and try to keep the photos as close to natural colour as much as possible. For example, if you spend time creating your wedding colour theme to be pink why should I change that be a different tone? I like to be able to capture the day exactly as you want it to look. I also really like to create grainy, vintage, black & white photos to make it look charmingly like film. I believe my editing style will keep your images lasting forever, the photos will never go out of style or trend.

 

Like to have chat with me? Please drop me a line and tell me about your story, I’d love to hear from you. 

Best Regards

Hi there! My name is Yuwen and I am a videographer for Mitcha Photography. I have four years’ experience as a videographer and working with Mitcha Photography is a rewarding job.

 

I was born in Taiwan and moved South Australia six years ago. I thoroughly enjoy the SA lifestyle! I thrive on creativity and I have developed an individual flare for wedding cinematography. I love what I do and I am dedicated to capturing weddings with integrity.

My aim is to help each couple feel comfortable, and capture stories as they happen. I believe the moments in-between are just as important as the formal ones.
