SEE WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY ABOUT US:
Steph + Cam
Black Avenue Productions were a fantastic choice for our wedding! We originally chose Derek & Lowina because they were the only photography company that we could find in our area that provided a photo album for us. We chose them and everything was super easy. We had to change our wedding date due to COVID-19, and Derek & Lowina accommodated to our new date. They were extremely responsive and easy to work with leading up to the big day.
On the day they arrived and were extremely professional and easy to work with, telling us what to do and which poses to achieve the best photos. It seemed as if we had known them forever – and we just met them! They worked really well with our videographer from another company which was really pleasing. All of our guests mentioned how nice they were. We have already seen some sneak peak photos and they are absolutely amazing.
We can’t wait to see the rest. I definitely recommend Black Avenue productions and would definitely choose them again for another function! thanks again Derek & Lowina!
Georgie + Grant
How many of my fellow troopers have gotten photos professionally taken with their other half?
These were taken a couple of years ago but still are my favourite photos in my TD kit.
Carmen + Alex
Would like to thank Black Avenue production for their amazing service at my wedding last Sunday. I knew i had to get these photographers to capture the special moments of my wedding the instant I saw their work on their website. Their service was beyond excellent. From the initial contact, Lowina was warm and approachable.
I had many worries and concerns which she had easily made right for me with her witty ideas. She even planned my timeline for me; without that I wouldn’t have known where to start and what to do.
Lowina & Derek worked like ninjas throughout the day making sure that every moment was being captured, I barely saw them sat down at any point. Even my relatives were commenting on how good their work ethics were.
They taught us what to do to make the photos look good, so for people who are not familiar with posing, there will be no issues at all because they make it fun and natural during the shoot.
Overall, I am more than happy with their service as it went well above expectations, thank you once again.
Soranya + Frank
Amazing day with an amazing crew! They mingled well with the guests, made us feel so comfortable the entire day!!!

It’s good to see the shots, like re living the whole day again:)
I cried through the whole video.
Thank you so much for everything we are so happy!

The team at BAP are amazing to say the least! We were so lucky to have them capture our day with their photography and videography and we couldn’t be happier with the end result!
They really took the time to ensure they captured a perfect mix of candid shots and staged shots do we ended up with the most beautiful images from our day. The turn around time was so quick but it didn’t effect the end result.
They definitely put in a lot of love and hard work when it comes to the editing process with is evident.
We couldn’t thank them enough!
Leanne and Rhys
When I first met Lowina, I was engaged by her energy and personality and knew immediately I had to hire her and her team.
I had a vision of what I wanted and my god, the team Lowina, Derek, Darius and Joseph exceeded my expectations. Not only did they see my vision, they made it a reality and more.
They are friendly, energetic, loving, extremely talented and a pleasure to have on our wedding day.
Not only do they take amazing photos and videos but they make your wedding day the best experience ever!
I gave them all my trust and I wasn’t disappointed not for a second. The team is the best!
Love them and don’t think twice and hire them and you will see why they are amazing!!!
Nhi and Miro
Black Avenue Productions team have such a raw and enchanting talent to capture moments that we know we will remember forever. You became more than our photographer, you became our friend.
The whole experience of having the friendly crew documenting our day far exceeded our wildest expectations, the images and videos we received are just – WOW – The comments from family and friends compare it to a “Vogue Wedding” and there is probably no higher praise than that! My cousin already booked them for next year!
Derek, Lowina, Darius and Taylor never get in the way to catch every moment of our happiness. All of our family and friends are so impressed with your approached and style of work and team effort, you guys never stops shooting and smiling!
Your enthusiasm and personalities put us both in calm & ease straight away, nothing was too much trouble. The whole team spirit reaching far and beyond to ensure that we are relaxed and happy on the day.
At first we thought having 4x photographers / videographers could be too over the top, now I know it’s worth all the hands and cameras in order to make our dreams come true!
Kathy and Sean
Thank you Iris and Josh for the arrangement!! You guys made our wedding day just perfect. Really appreciate your thoughtful, considerate and professional attitude to us.

Thank you Lowina and Derek for capturing our special day so beautifully! I can’t recommend them highly enough; from first email to the final pictures, we were looked after so well and felt in very safe hands.
Milon and Sam
Black Avenue Productions has every package to suit every need and budget. They have been extremely responsive and helpful in every situation. Every movement, smile, laughter and most importantly, love, have been captured so vividly clear. Every guest of mine reviewed highly of them. Thank you so much for such a wonderful experience.
Specifically to Derek, Lowina and Joseph, they were truly sensational. Thank you again for creating such as a joyful and easeful atmosphere for both Sam and I. We can’t speak highly enough of these beautiful people.
Derek, Lowina and Joseph are great to have during stressful and unpleasant moments in front of the cameras. They lightened up the mood, and captured the most beautiful products that you would never know that you had!
Judit and Ben
I can highly recommend Lowina and Derek, they did an amazing job. They are professional and fun. We love the photos and videos they took. Thank you Lowina and Derek to travel to Europe for our wedding!!
Nikita and Tim
I stumbled upon Black Avenue Productions’ website last year when I was in a hunt for pre-wedding photographers. We knew we wanted to take photos in Bright, Victoria during autumn, and we were looking for someone who knows the area and/or can travel and scout the place for us. We hit a jackpot.
Lowina has been amazing preparing all the options for us, including suggestions what outfits to wear and what kind of styling (hair and makeup) that would match. Derek prepared the itineraries for the 2-day shooting. Before the day, we could already see they put a massive amount of effort in the planning, and they genuinely care what we want/need!
The photoshoots went amazingly. Both Lowina and Derek are easygoing we enjoyed hours we spent together just like old friends. Not to forget they are very professional as they took amazing pictures, they knew which spots to go as they have scouted the places, they guided us during the shoots to capture the perfect emotions! We were so surprised when they brought a drone and we had photos taken from the air. It was so special, loved working with them.
One day after the photoshoots, Derek sent through over a dozen of sneakpeek photos, they turned out REALLY good. We are still waiting for the online gallery of the full collection, but we know they would be magical!
U Sun and Francis
Love love love the photos and videos Derek and team took for both our pre-wedding and wedding!
The team were easy to work with and clear on communication, friendly and professional.
Just book them, you only have one wedding and they will keep your memory forever, they’re worth the premium price!
Sara and Kryii
They were really good and easy to deal with. We were happy with everything they came up with for us.
Gloria and Victor
We could not ask for a better team! They capture the moment that we love and touching. Family and friends were tearing while watching it.
Photos taken on both days were natural, captured different moments from various angle that we’ve missed. Family and friends’ commented that they are the most dedicated and professional photographers crew that they have ever seen!
Ying and Anthony
Simply breathtaking! I don’t know how Derek and the team did it but they truly captured the essence and magic of our wedding day: the nerves, the love, the fun, the tears and the laughter.
Looking through the photos and videos made us feel like we were back there on our wedding day getting married all over again. We are so grateful for Derek’s hard work in capturing the details of our wedding in such beautiful images + videos and we will treasure them forever.
The whole crew (Derek, Iris, Andy and Darius) were a pleasure to have around and made everything feel so effortless!
WORTH EVERY DOLLARS! Just hire them for your own sake!
I’m so happy that I chose Derek’s team! They are very professional and easy to communicate with.
We did not need to worry about anything at our wedding day just be ourselves and they’ll do the job.
The photos came out so natural and beautiful, they’ve captured everything I want, the nerves, the love, the fun, the tears and the laughter… I also got lot of compliments from my friends and families after sharing my photos and videos to them.
Worth every dollar spent!
Georgie and Adbeali
These guys are truly AMAZING!!!! Can’t speak highly of them enough! They made my big prefect!!! This crew was the best! I watched them at a friend’s wedding and knew instantly that I had to have them at mine!
The communication was fantastic leading up to the day. Then on the day they did more than i could have ever asked for! They made sure all my guests were included and had photos.
I believe that photo is just priceless! The way we are all smiling in all photos it really shows the team’s characters and the fun and appreciation Abde and I have for them.
And the photos! Omg!!!!! Amazing! Can’t wait to be able to print them and decorate my house!!!!!
Lowina and Derek gave us lots of ideas and communication was fantastic. They let my husband and I just be ‘us’ and they stood back took photos.
At the reception all my guests loved how they got involved with the party and celebrated with us. They were fantastic! Amazing team! Can’t talk enough good about you guys.
Highly recommend Black Avenue Productions to cover any weddings! Thank you so much!!!!

We absolutely loved our photos and videos! Lowina and her team captured some absolutely beautiful and candid moments. The quality of their service was amazing and they brought so much enthusiasm to our big day. We thank them for their professionalism and amazing customer service.
Alessia & Mitch Brown
Black Avenue Productions and their team were incredible on our wedding day, and have captured the most special moments in a truly unique and beautiful way. They have been an absolute pleasure to deal with during the lead up to the big day. We highly recommend them. We are so in love with our photos and we will never forget the year 2018!
Kristina & Tony Trajkovski
When it comes to life changing occasions, the best advice I have ever been given is book the best photographer you can find because these moments are what you will look back on for the rest of your life. When we started looking around for our photographer, we came across Black Avenue Productions on the Easy Wedding directory and loved their work and instantly knew they were the best in their field.
My wife Kristina and I, even my family and friends can’t praise the quality of Black Avenue Production’s work and their work ethic enough. We first met Lowina 12 months before our wedding and knew immediately that we wanted to work with her. She was genuinely interested in getting to know who we are as individuals and as a couple and made us feel very at ease from the first conversation.
For an extra touch, 8 months before our wedding we decided to do our engagement shoot with Black Avenue Productions as a practice run for the day. We are so glad we did, because we fell in love with the team and of course the spectacular high quality photos and video.
Both of us are not particularly photogenic and we didn’t want the whole wedding day to be about getting the perfect shot, yet naturally we wanted amazing photos to remind us of a fabulous day. By having this time to get to know the photographers and videographers beforehand, it made the wedding day so much more relaxing because we had already created a bond which reflected so much in the photos.
Lowina’s communication leading up to the wedding was excellent, she got back to any queries we had very quickly and gave us guidance on a photography timeline for the day in order to make best use of their time.
I also have to mention that Lowina’s patience and understanding made our day less stressful and be at ease knowing we could trust them 110% to capture every moment.
On the day, Black avenue productions was very professional and reassuring.
One of the best things about working with Black avenue productions is their relaxed nature and ability to fit in. They are very subtle and don’t dominate the room like I’ve seen some photographers do.
As professionals, they are a friendly team who goes out of their way to make everyone feel comfortable, were always open to suggestions and importantly they made it so much fun too.
We received sneak peek photos within 24 hours after the wedding which exceeded our expectations. Overall working with Black Avenue Productions was one of the best decisions we made.
We can not tell you enough that they are the best photographer and videographer EVER!!! Thank you so much for you hard work Black Avenue Productions, you were with us from early morning till late that night to ensure that you covered every second of our most special day, and we couldn’t have been more happy with the outcome. Kristina & I keep saying how lucky we were to have you!
Great team to work with! Very easy going and the photos and videos were amazing at my sister’s wedding! Thank you Lowina and team!
I worked with Black Avenue Productions on a wedding for a beautiful couple who travelled from Hong Kong to be married in Australia. Lowina and the team were fantastic! they made the couple feel comfortable and relaxed and took their time to ensure they captured the moments this couple will remember all their lives. Highly recommend!
Amanda & David
They were really good. We had a lot of meetings prior to the wedding day and they listened to what we wanted. We were particular about certain shots and style of photography that we wanted and they proved to us along the way of what they could do. They made us feel really comfortable on the day and ended up being like friends. They completed delivered!
Mr & Mrs Lo Ricco
Thank you so much Lowina and the team for the fantastic job on our wedding. All team members were so easy to work with. They were the one to capture every moment. The service was professional and the photos were stunning. Lowina puts her heart and passion in what she does. Every time I watch my big day my heart smiles which I will need for the rest of my life. My husband and I including family and friends will truly treasure every moment they captured. I have no regrets and would recommend Lowina and her team to all the brides out there looking for the perfect wedding photo and video.
The videography from Black Avenue was awesome. More then we planned for including drone footage and many great styles. Very happy with the whole serve from Black Avenue Productions.
Brooke & Trent McDonald
I completely love Black Avenue Productions and am so happy that I chose them to capture the most important day of my life. My photos and videos are beautiful. They were like ninjas; not interfering at all when it was the perfect time to capture those candid moments. When it was time to they also showed us how to pose so that we looked our best whilst also helping us to feel relaxed and have fun with it. I woke up the next morning to see sneak peak photos after they had been with us all day and night, they went home and got started! This shows their commitment to making their clients as happy as possible! We received all of our photos and videos before we returned from our honeymoon. 10/10, I cannot recommend them enough!
Daisy & Kyle Malcolm
Lowina and the team done an exceptional job with our photography and videography at the highest standard great communication and exceeded all our expectations would highly recommend them.

It was so nice to meet Derek and Lowina from Black Avenue Productions. They are very nice people and always assisted us in front of the camera. A day after our shoot we received the edited photos and they are amazing! So Happy with the result!”
I’m entirely glad we chose Lowina and Derek for taking our wedding pictures. It was more like having a good time with old friends than with someone we’ve never met before. They were so friendly and professional! Thank you for keeping a beautiful memory of our big day forever.
We had our pre wedding shoot done with Black Avenue Productions in April and could not have loved Lowina, Derek and the crew more. Fantastic team to work with, super friendly, more than patient and accommodating. I’m so glad we have another chance to work with them for our wedding.
I had a really wonderful shooting with this amazing well-organized lovely Lowina and Derek! I am so happy with the results and it was very much fun and highly professional !!! Thank you Black Avenue Productions!

We have our after wedding shooting in Vienna – our love city – with Lowina and Derek from Black Avenue Production was the best idea.

April and Jakob Michlis
I was regretful that we didn’t have a proper wedding so no wedding photos. When I saw Black Avenue Productions coming to Prague, we booked our flight. Lowina & Derek are not only Professional but at the same time, COOL! They are fun people to work with. Taking photos and making videos with them make me fall in love with my man once again. It was a very sweet experience. The team took us to many secret hidden locations in Prague where no ordinary tourists can stumble upon. We felt so well taken care of! (If I remarry again, I will still pick Black Avenue! Shhhhhh…..)
Totally best photographers duo! May be Australian, but also good known in good old Europe and we were enough lucky, that we can catch them during their European tour! Their prices are good, but work excellent and thank them was our special day the best day of our life! Thank you so much!
Verena and Tanja Berger
A great team and they did a great job!

Steve and Stephanie Stuper
Thank you Lowina and the team on the fantastic moments that you captured on my step daughter’s wedding. You were creative, unobtrusive and professional. Highly recommended.
Robin & Sophie
We had our wedding photography and videography with Black Avenue Productions. Cannot recommend Lowina, Derek and the crew enough. Thanks to their outstanding photography and videography we now have a wonderful record of our special day.
As a team they are kind, open and communicative. Dealing with them was a pleasure before, during and after the wedding!
They knew just how to manage a crowd, and how to get in dozens of beautiful posted photos in a short period of time.
I can’t thank you guys enough! Cheers!
Georgina and Szymon
Black Avenue Productions were fantastic in capturing all our beautiful moments and stolen expressions so artistically and creatively, from our pre-wedding photoshoot to our wedding day.
Lowina have been wonderful to communicate and plan the shoots with whilst Derek and Iris were so easygoing and captured all our photos so discreetly that we didn’t even notice they were there! The team patiently listened to our ideas and were more than accommodating towards all our requests.
They also worked really well with all our vendors. They are nothing short of an amazing team to work with and we couldn’t have asked for a more excellent bunch of professionals to capture our special day.
We have thoroughly enjoyed our wedding photography experiences with them and we now have wonderful memories that not only we can share with others but also forever treasure all thanks to these guys. We would definitely highly recommend Black Avenue Productions to everyone.
From Lyn Scott of “The Flower Snob”
Lowina, Derek and the whole team are extremely creative, and committed to achieving the best results for their brides & grooms.

Unforgettable engagement photo shoot ever in Melbourne! Secret marriage proposal by my fiancé and the Black Avenue Production team. They are professional, full of ideas, friendly and super funny.
My fiancée told me that he booked a 3.5 days couple photography trip while we travelling through Melbourne, secretly Lowina arranged hair & makeup + gown & suit rental services since we only have casual wear, I love the dresses & my make-over! Such a memorable shooting experience! Highly recommend!

Ashley & Aston
The Black Avenue Productions crew styled me for our pre-wedding photoshoot, they listened to us and created a package for their photoshoot + hair and make-up, gown hired, wall canvas and photobook combo package. Very flexible and great value for money! Derek and Lowina are fun and professional. Me and my partner are naturally very shy, they made sure that we were comfortable, taught us how to pose and made us feel at ease and relaxed. All our friends love the photos. Amazing! Highly recommend!

They are lovely people to work with and I can’t wait to work with them in the near future. Good luck with your future plans and may your business fly to new heights
Derek managed to capture pictures of us in action despite the low lighting and fast action! Having Derek as our photographer for previous outdoor activities, this comes as no surprise as he knows when to capture the moments that matters the most.
