Parallel Photography is the partnership between Gavan Mitchell of Mitchell Imaging & Photography and Sofie Muceniekas. Based in Melbourne, Australia, Gavan and Sofie both studied photography at RMIT and after graduating continued to work together. Parallel Photography has been informally active for the past 5 years, photographing weddings entirely due to word-of-mouth. Our goal is to provide a professional and fun imaging service for your special day, we pride ourselves on our ability to work together as a team and capture a variety of different styles. Our interpersonal skills are casual but efficient and we believe it is this that sets us apart from many other event photographers. We care about providing our services with integrity and respecting your requests for the day. This day is about you, not us bossing you around – we’re there to document and interact with you and your guests in a friendly and proficient manner. We’ve already had the absolute pleasure of photographing some gorgeous weddings. Here’s some of the feedback we’ve received so far:
“On our Wedding Day we really wanted a relaxed atmosphere and to capture special moments with family and friends. Gavan and Sofie spent time with us before to discuss our thoughts and their ideas. They also visited our venue and helped us plan some alternate scenarios, just in case the weather turned bad. Gavan and Sofie seemed like one of the family by the end of the day. They took stunning photos without seeming to even be there. Our album is the perfect balance between posed photos and capturing special moments. We would highly recommend them to anyone.” ~ Stewart and Susan
”Sofie was professional and lovely, and took gorgeous photos of our big day. She was great during the planning phase, and helped us think about the best way to structure our family and wedding party group shots, as well as how to take our couple shots. The end result was photos that we will treasure for the rest of our lives.” ~ Catherine and Josh
We’re also extremely happy with the photographic portfolio we’ve been able to build by working for such like-minded and inspiring couples. We aspire to welcome weddings of all styles, none is too small or too eccentric.
