Formerly known as Award Winning Flashback Photography,

evolved from a vision to have a business model that operates beyond

Member of the Australian Institute of Professional Photography (AIPP).
We strive for excellence and are passionate about what we do. As

Our catch phrase in three words Lavish…The
Experience explains what our clients value most is

customers often using our services on an annual basis for portrait

business employing staff who have a love of photography and a passion
for people. We genuinely care about you and offering the best quality,
product, printing, service and equipment available. In today’s
society, it is a challenge in any industry to find a company that
has a philosophy of exceeding the expectations of the client.
Annette has a dynamic and fresh approach to Photography
and is always pushing the limits to get the best shots. Annette
will be your photographer so as the owner of the business, you can
be assured she will go beyond the call to deliver superb results
and that her rapidly expanding business maintains the highest integrity
and customer satisfaction is achieved beyond expectation.
To achieve our objective and deliver the best quality
albums and service to our clients, we limit the number of weddings
we shoot each year so we can spend the time perfecting those we
work on. We receive high demand so it is important to book early
to avoid disappointment.
Annette has been operating her photography business
for nine years. Her unique style continues to be creative and inspired
by attending leading training by the best photographers in the business
both nationally and internationally so she brings to you evolving
world class photography trends.
As a female photographer, Annette is also acutely
aware of how to strategically position a shot so the focus is not
on the things you least desire about yourself. She also knows how
to emphasize your best assets, whether it be your eyes, your hair,
your figure or your smile. Lighting is critical in creating dramatic
and well composed images and we use a number of lighting techniques
to achieve this.
Cameras don’t create great photos. Technique,
creativity, skill, experience, personality and heart are the reasons
why our results are exceptional and why clients prefer to use Lavish
Photography’s professional service as their photographer of
Annette is artistic and has a natural talent in finding the beauty
in everyone and the ability to create an environment to capture
the essence of who you are. The mastery of photography is as much
about connecting with your subject as it is about delivering exceptional
images. We want to establish a connection with you so the entire
experience is a fun, personal, intimate and memorable occasion.
We are honoured to be able to share in such a momentous
occasion in your life. When Annette shoots a wedding, she has the
attitude that it will be the best wedding she has ever photographed
and her next Award Winning Album which inspires her to strive for
Annette combines her knowledge of wedding formalities
with her creative flair, to be sure that the essential elements
of the day are captured while always looking for those shots you
don’t expect. With confidence, Annette will direct shots when
needed but she prefers to create a playful atmosphere that allows
you the freedom to express yourself and your emotions without feeling
inhibited or unnatural. Family and friends often comment that they
didn’t even realise she was there.
It is the greatest compliment for a bride and groom
to shed a tear and a mother and father to hug Annette at the end
of the day, because by this time they feel like she is part of the
family. This connection is very important to us so the images are
heartfelt and natural.
We love working with like minded people that want
a relaxed approach and are passionate about photography and creating
their stunning designer album. After your wedding Annette will be
exhilarated and can’t wait to get back to the office to view
the images. Our relationship with our clients is a team approach
and we work together to achieve sensational results.
Annette loves the tradition of cultural weddings
such as Macedonian. The connection between relatives and friends,
spirit, love and the festivities create amazing photo opportunities
and are a legacy for future generations.
Annette’s familiarity with Newcastle, Lake
Macquarie, Hunter Valley, Port Stephens and surrounding areas means
she knows where to scout some of the best locations in wet weather,
night or day photography.
