Nigel Unsworth Studios is a boutique studio who caters to clientele who want elegant, timeless images of the highest quality. My clients and I share a common interest in wanting to create beautiful images which are printed and presented in high-quality albums.
The high standard of products, creative vision and commitment to our clients means you can be confident you have chosen a studio that offers the very best. I limit the number of weddings I do around Australia to 30 a year.
I feel privileged as a wedding photographer that my clients allow me the opportunity to photograph one of the most important days of their lives so I can document the memories for them.
I am a member of the Australian Institute of Professional Photography (AIPP) and Wedding & Portrait Photographers International (WPPI). I have won awards nationally and internationally for my wedding images.
I have a studio in Berry NSW and run my business as a full-time professional photographer. I often photograph weddings all over Australia with the majority of weddings being in the Southern Highlands, South Coast and Sydney.
Each wedding is personally photographed and edited by myself to produce unique artistic wedding images. I do not outsource editing or photography to anyone else as the final product is a reflection of my work.
I use an assistant at weddings to help with off camera lighting and to second shoot during the ceremony/reception so all the important moments are captured.
Having a photographer that is experienced, professional, has great people skills and able to work under pressure is invaluable when it comes to weddings.
Every image taken on your wedding day is stored on two different cards in each camera. After your wedding, your wedding images are backed up on 3 different hard drives and stored in 2 different locations at all times.
All images are edited and retouched by myself on a calibrated Eizo monitor for accurate colour management of your images. I spend a lot of time during the editing process. Outsourcing is becoming more and more popular with other photographers but it’s something I don’t do as I love the creative editing process.
I think it’s a big part of being a professional photographer and creating your own unique style that separates yourself from other photographers.
Knowing how to edit and colour manage your images is very important for any photographer calling themselves a professional. The final print that is to be framed or put in an album must be of the highest quality.
Below is an example of a finished edited image I give a client on the right and what came straight out of the camera as a RAW capture on the left.
Every photographer varies in the amount of work/effort they put into post processing so it’s important to ask to see a whole wedding and not just the ‘best’ images photographers have on their websites.
High Resolution Images
I only use the highest quality products and all images are stored on a USB packaged with around 150 6″x4″ prints. These stylish, elegant print boxes are made in Germany and each image is edited and retouched with my unique style ready for printing.
All your wedding images will be full high-resolution edited JPEGS ready for printing. Along with the high-resolution images you will also get web versions of the same images stored on a password protected online gallery.
A lot of photographers reduce the size of the images they give their clients so they can fit them on a smaller USB.
I provide my clients with the full high-resolution images so there aren’t any limitations (within reason) to what size you can print your images at.
On average I shoot about 70 images an hour, so for an 10 hour wedding clients will receive around 700 images.
I understand that having high-resolution digital images are important to clients and I agree which is why I supply all the high-res digital images on USB.
That being said, where will that USB be in 5 or 10 years time? As technology changes so does your ability to store and access your images.
I’m a big believer that photographs should be printed and displayed in areas you spend a lot of time so you can reminisce each time you see those images. Instead of them being stored on a computer’s hard drive, I believe your wedding images should be presented beautifully in an album. Not just any album but an album of the highest quality handmade with the finest materials which will become an heirloom.
Queensberry Albums are handmade with the finest materials and you will own something very special to share with members of your family, for generations to come.
I offer a wide range of different albums from Queensberry including Flushmount Albums, Classic Matted Albums and Duo Albums which combine traditional mats with flushmount pages.
Photography packages start from $3650 and $4650 for album packages.

Wedding dates are only secure once a 25% retainer has been paid so please check my availability. If you would like more information or would like to book an appointment, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
Nigel, We should begin by saying we have a huge respect for your artwork. You deserve to be extremely proud of yourself. Your photography reflects not only your professionalism, but also your understanding that a wedding is not just about the bride and groom, but two families joining together and celebrating their love for each other. You managed to capture all our natural emotions without being intrusive. At no point in the day did anybody feel posed – and no photos look fake or staged. Every photograph we have seen has left us speechless! We are so proud to show off our photos! Now the wedding is over, we have some timeless, priceless artworks to admire. We will be recommending you to all our friends and family. We look forward to working with you again in a few years when the next person in our family gets married! – Sarah + Javier 14.02.14 Ravensthorpe, Albion Park
