We are Rabbit and the Bear. Wedding videography and photography simplified.
Specialists in alleviating camera awkwardness since 2014, we’re hell bent on making you a kick ass film and shooting pretty pictures worthy of your wall.
Your wedding doesn’t have to be stressful or awkward nor should it be. The day on which you promise your soul to another should be a love-drenched,
laughter-filled celebration with maybe a few tears but most importantly it should be unapologetically you.
Wedding photography and film for the wild at heart, the adventurers and the dreamers. Our work has carved its place between the classic and modern, fusing deep yet vibrant colour palettes against the sun drenched Australian landscape.
We love a party and are suckers for a good time…lovers first, always.
Mostly candid, occasionally bold.
Emotive, timeless, cinematic wedding video and photography from Byron Bay.
Whether you're getting married in the Byron Bay hinterland, on a Gold Coast beach or the family farm out west we would love to hear more about your day.
We are Rabbit and the Bear, a Northern Rivers based wedding photography and wedding videography studio covering Byron Bay, Gold Coast, Brisbane and beyond.
SIMONE + COLIN - SCENIC RIM, QLD
The O'Loughlin wedding was far from ordinary.
We woke up at my dads house in my home town, had breakfast at the local cafe and buzzed over the day to come, a day filled with laughter, tears, friends and family.
Most importantly... we had the honour of watching this gorgeous girl from my little hometown marry the man who fills her heart to bursting. The man who takes care of her no matter what and is her shelter from the storm. This was an extra-ordinary day because Simone became Mrs O’Loughlin and there’s no feeling quite like bearing witness to that kind of happiness.
We like to do things a little differently here, so instead of ramping up costs for extras here there and everywhere we've come up with two simple packages. We will be at your wedding from the most important parts of prep up until the formalities conclude. Capturing so many moments big and small allows us to craft a narrative of your day that flows effortlessly, any ideas of your own, just let us know!
Whilst we always try to deliver your films and photos as soon as possible, given the nature of the industry and the amount of hours that go into editing every film and photo please allow us a little time to turnaround your final package. We aim to have your highlight film online within 4 weeks of your wedding day along with your finished gallery. The full package will be on its way 12-16 weeks after your wedding and for our Keepsake Collection clients the delivery of your album is subject to design and print time due to these all being handcrafted. Please understand in busier months the above timelines aren't always possible so please allow for a little extra time.
“I couldn’t possibly do justice to how incredible Jordyn and Andy are but here goes…
Booking Rabbit and the Bear was absolutely the best decision I made for our wedding day. Having beautiful photos and video footage was a big focus for me - after all, that’s you have left when the day is over! - and I am completely taken away by how stunningly they captured all the best moments of our day. Jordyn and Andy are warm, kind, funny, organised, strong and Jordyn can take a shoulder charge from an over-enthusiastic Nonna trying to get to you like a champ. Not only did they keep things running smoothly on the day, but Jordyn was always there to reassure, make you laugh, hold your champagne, reign in groomsmen (when they needed it) and pin your veil like the angel she is. Andy will go to any lengths to get your shot the incredible images are testament to that. They both made us feel completely comfortable taking all of our photos and these moments ended up being some of the best parts of our day. Just thinking about our video makes me want to cry and what you see in their package is exactly what you get - in our case, right down to the beautiful scarf around our box. They captured our tastes and style perfectly and we will be forever grateful for the hard work and genuine care they gave us. It’s the people around you who make your day special and you definitely want these two by your side.
Love, Celeste and Taylor xx”
Ok so here's the thing...albums and prints don't get enough recognition nowadays. We are pretty guilty in modern times of being impatient when it comes to pretty much everything from our TV content to our food deliveries. Your wedding films and photos shouldn't be like that. An album when crafted just right should be something to get lost in, pages full of memories that no matter how much time has passed will take you back to exactly how that day felt. To this day some of our fondest memories of both our grandparents are sitting down with old biscuit tins full of dog-eared family photos and listening wide eyed to tales of times gone by. That's what we want for you and your family when you sit down in years to come...to hold a book full of memories to share with souls that may not yet have been there.
