We are lifelong storytellers.
We were those daydreaming kids, the ones that made their own skit shows and drew their own picture books. While the days of skinned knees and make-believe are behind us, our imagination and need to tell stories have never left us.
And we all know, the best stories are love stories.
We include a pre-wedding meeting, planning and continual communication in all of our packages. We take a very hands-on approach and chat to you about your ideas, locations and give advice about timing. We have lots of experience in weddings and love to help! It’s important for us to inspire you and have everything well planned in advance, so on the day all you need to do is relax and trust us to capture the most beautiful images we possibly can.
Hi, I'm Matt and I love what I do. I get a kick out of the whole photography process from start to finish. When I shoot I am looking for the decisive moment to capture, and I don't believe you're finished as a photographer until you process your images. I use all Adobe programs and have been known to sit at the computer for hours working on the fine details of a single image.
I have been working as a photographer for more than 10 years, in advertising and as an exhibiting artist. I believe in being honest and providing the best images possible.
I hold a B/A Multimedia, B/A Photography and a Masters in Photography from Charles Sturt University.
Hi there, I’m Katy! I originally started working with analogue photography and I fell in love with it the first time I saw my images appear through the developer in the dark room.
I hold a Bachelor of Fine Art / Teaching and majored in traditional photography and alternative print processes. I use my knowledge of film photography to guide me in the realm of digital. I strive to reproduce the vibrant colours, pure whites, inky blacks and soft greys in warm, love lit, natural scenes that steal both our hearts.
We have dedicated our time to perfecting our look. Our couples have consistently commented on the quality of our colour treatments and choose us for our shooting and editing style. We believe our final product to be an honest capturing and timeless presentation of your day. In addition to the hours we will shoot on your day, we spend 85+ hours, editing and treating your wedding photographs with custom filters and adjustments.
As artists we use colours the same way a good writer uses language to bring a scene to life. By focusing on the mood and atmosphere of your wedding we will choose a colour palette to match.
We shoot with the intention of applying our custom colour processing to every image we take.
The right colour treatment enhances the nostalgia and beauty of the landscape and this private moment. When you receive your wedding images we hope you get goose bumps all over again as you re-live the day.
Little things help tell the whole story.

Our Photographers and videographers work seamlessly together to be unobtrusive and to comprehensively capture your whole day.
We aim to transport you back to the day with beautiful photographs & video.
All the best stories have truths in them, genuine moments of real life. As a photographer nothing is more beautiful or compelling than real expressions and connections. These moments are candid and honest, capturing those things which you were probably too busy to notice, the interplays of glances and the raw emotions that make up your day.
The first couple married in NSW were ancestors of ours and their surnames were Rope and Pulley. While having that ancestral link is kind of cool we also think working together, like a rope and pulley, helps us create better work. We support each other and have found we thrive on collaboration.
We love photography, and fell in love. We met in a photography studio, which looking back was no surprise.
It wasn't a typical love story though, but it was epic!
From Autumn motorbike rides to moving to London and then back to Sydney, we knew we wanted to be a family.
We also knew we wanted to start Rope&Pulley and share our passion for making beautiful images.
