Welcome to David Bailey Photography

I specialise in Ballarat Wedding PhotographyPortraits, Boudoir & much more…

I’m a Ballarat Photographer and Photography Trainer with over 12 years experience. Not long ago, I was explaining to someone my love for Wedding Photography. How I’m passionate about the couple’s love for each other, their story and the BIG DAY but, I had to stop… I noticed from head to toe I had Goosebumps!!! This is the passion I bring to my work every time I lift my Vintage Medium Format or DSLR Cameras.

I’m based in Ballarat, however, Photograph Victoria (& Australia) wide. This includes – Daylesford, Talbot, Horsham, Ararat, Bendigo, Geelong, Creswick, Buninyong and Maryborough. Travel can be included in most Wedding Photography packages, though for some areas a little may need to be added to cover costs.

A few of the local Wedding Venues that I’ve captured incredible Wedding Images for Brides and Grooms include Buninyong Botanical Gardens, Ballarat Botanical Gardens, Ballarat Mid City Motor Inn, Midlands Golf Club and Kirks Reservoir.  After the ceremony, Ballarat has some stunning locations for location images. Locations such as The Railway Station, Lake Wendouree, Mount Helen, Mount Clear, Buninyong Botanical Gardens, Ballarat Botanical Gardens, The Tangled Maze, Mair Street Tunnel, Kirks Reservoir and stunning heritage architecture provide incredible backdrops for beautiful Wedding imagery in Ballarat.

I’m a Husband, Father, Grandfather (eek, I’m not even old) & sometimes a Blogger. My love of Photography started in Primary School, with rolls of Film, a black room & tubs of chemicals. It grew from there to where I am today, an Award Winning Wedding Photographer. 

I’m an experienced Ballarat Photographer & Photography Trainer with a true passion for all things Camera – yes I even collect & use Vintage Cameras! I love getting to know the people in front of the lens and capturing something real and insightful about them.

Whether it’s the model, a bride or a corporate client, the camera shy or the camera happy, I like to establish a comfortable rapport and capture something memorable about them.

Thankyou for taking the time to get to know me and I hope to speak to you soon about your photography needs!

I recently wrote a Blog Post & answered questions numerous people on Facebook asked. It even includes Ninja Skills I’ve learnt to become an incredible Photographer, jump over and read it here.

Pro Wedding Photographer vs Amateur BFF Lucy?

Recently, I’ve had a few requests for how cheap I can do a Wedding Photography Package. I’ve then been told that it’s too expensive & they have a “friend who has a great camera”.
