Brett & Megan (Lithgow)
I can not thank Wendy enough for everything she done on my wedding day. She was the best photographer. She is fully prepared to put in an hours you want her to, offers her help leading up to the wedding, she was fully prepared with umbrellas for my rainy day. I felt so relaxed with Wendy taking photos, half the time I forgot she was even there, which was nice to not stand around posing for hours. I had 90 photos of my wedding shown to me within 24 hours and than all my photos back (2100) of them on a USB within the week. She made me a wedding album and that was 6 weeks later like she had said. I would highly recommend her and will be using her in the future for any photography I need.

Guy & Elissa (Orange)
If you’re looking for the whole package for a wedding and excellent value for money, Wendy is definitely the photographer you want. She is passionate about what she does and really puts in 110% effort. We got married on the hottest day in Orange’s history back in February, where it sky rocketed to 41.c just as the ‘outdoor’ ceremony was about to begin. Wendy and Mark put in at least an 18+ hr day, capturing everything from start to finish, lugging around all of their equipment in extreme conditions and always put our needs first. The turn around on our photos and wedding book was extremely quick and we couldn’t be happier with our decision to book Candid Photos of a Lifetime.

Boyd & Alicia (Orange)
Wendy (from Candid Photos of a Lifetime) was such a fantastic photographer! She was with us for 90% of our wedding day – from start to end – totalling almost 14hrs! She snapped beautiful photographs of our wedding that we will cherish forever. Our photos turned out beautiful and we couldn’t be more grateful! It’s almost as if we had multiple people photographing we received so many photos. It was fantastic! Wendy is everything you could ask for in a wedding photographer. Thank you again Wendy

Shannon Cluff (Bathurst)
A huge thank you to Wendy Stewart at Candid Photos Of A Lifetime, for the amazing work she put into our special day. While Wendy had a reasonable price the service and quality we received was 5 stars. She started our special day with driving to our wedding location well before sunrise and capturing some breathtaking sunrise photos and then didn’t stop until we left our reception late that night. Her attention to detail and eye for capturing an emotion or many is incredible. We really couldn’t imagine getting through our day and photos without Wendy’s focus, personality and experience. Our photos were back in no time actually, while still on our honeymoon. Every emotion was captured through Wendy’s lens and after going through them tears of happiness were definitely shed. I would highly recommend Wendy to all of our friends and anybody in need of an affordable and professional photographer. Thank you again Wendy, both my wife and I could not be happier with our Wedding photos and the service you provided.

Ashley  (Bathurst)
I knew for years before my wedding day (before I got engaged even) that I wanted Wendy Stewart at Candid Photos of a Lifetime to do my wedding day. After doing some research I chose Wendy because she has the best deals around. She offers more for less than any other photographer that I came across and after meeting with her and talking with her throughout the process of planning I found her to be a lovely and dedicated person. She gets up at the crack of dawn excited for your wedding day and after the day is done she smashes out the editing of your photos so you can get them back as soon as possible. My guests found Wendy to be a fun and lovely photographer and I truly appreciate her work and effort during the whole wedding process and on the day itself.

 Matthew & Brittany (Orange)
From our very first chat on the phone finding out costs and availability right up until our big way, Wendy at Candid Photos Of A Lifetime was incredibly helpful and able to give tips and ideas for what would work best for us. 

We are both young and were manoeuvring our way through planning a wedding with plenty of hurdles, neither of us had any idea what we were doing, didn’t know what we needed or wanted and Wendy was easy to chat to and within a couple of conversations we had a grasp of what we wanted and were happy to commit to having her as our photographer.

Wendy understood our families issues, helped create a plan to avoid unnecessary issues, also to avoid those excessive photo requests from some over excited guests and made sure the day ran smoothly and without a hitch. She is a bubbly person who was extremely easy to get along with and delved into the theatrics of the getting ready process with us and made everyone laugh and relax. She went above and beyond for me to avoid drama and to remain happy and hydrated, Making the entire experience even better!

With Wendy’s fun and relaxed attitude and helpful tips we were able to relax and organise our photos quickly and easily and we found that was an extreme help, especially when so many other things in the few weeks before the wedding became incredibly stressful.
The photos she took are absolutely breathtaking and she made our day even more special with the wonderful memories and relaxed environment she created.

Our guests and relatives constantly comment on the beauty of our wedding photos as well as the wonderful service Wendy provided to everyone on the day who wanted to have a special photo taken with us as well as the photos that were taken of special fixtures at our venue. Wendy also ensured that when editing and fixing up some photos that she was able to remove some “photo bombing” of crucial moments to capture the true wonder of those moments and that meant the world to us.

We would highly recommend Wendy to anyone needing incredibly gorgeous photos at an absolutely wonderful price.

Our day was perfect but was made that much more amazing thanks to the hilarious and loving moments caught by Wendy (from Candid Photos of a Lifetime). Wendy went above and beyond a photographers duty to help the day run smoothly we would recommend Candid Photographs of a Lifetime in a heartbeat.

Matthew & Jacinta (Orange)
Planning a wedding can be a really hard task, especially when you are trying to find everything from photographers to a reception venue. My husband and I found it hard to find a photographer that was not only fantastic at their job but also great people to help make the day not so stressful. When we finally found Candid Photos Of A Lifetime we felt relieved that we had narrowed our search down. It wasn’t until we met Wendy and seen her work that we knew that she was the one we wanted. Not only is she an amazing photographer, she is an amazing person. We booked her straight away and didn’t once second guess our choice. We chose the Gold Package which was such great value but we also got a second photographer. Who happens to be Wendy’s Husband Mark, who we referred to as “The Ninja” because you never knew when you were being photographed. As the wedding got closer I started to stress that everything was not going to work as planned as I was having little things go wrong. Wendy was there for me to have someone to talk to and not just about the photography side of things. She really helped leading up to the big day to calm me down. Wendy and Mark were amazing they made me feel so relaxed and comfortable and I turned from being a camera shy girl to posing every chance I had. They captured every photo we asked for and many more and even got up and had a dance with myself and the bridal party. I do not have a single bad thing to say about Wendy and Mark they were amazing. The photos that we received were such high quality and everything we could have asked for. We have not only decided on our photographer for everything big thing to come but we also made great friends. If you are after a more personal touch and every little and big moment of your special day captured don’t look past Candid Photos Of A Lifetime you will not be disappointed.
Thank you so much for being apart of our special day you guys were amazing.

Stephen and Sarah  (Mulgoa)
Wendy was the first photographer we met with who was truly excited about photographing our wedding. To us, she became more than our wedding photographer. Going above and beyond what we had expected (including helping to lace me into my dress, and teaching us how to put on the rings to get the best shot!), Wendy became a close friend. Many of our guests were surprised to hear we had only recently met because she fit in so well. She is professional, punctual and her images are stunning. Stephen and I both highly recommend Wendy (as well as many of our friends and family…just ask them!) and hope to use her again in the future. Thank you for everything xx
Matthew & Tabatha (Bathurst)
When looking for that person to capture those most treasured moments and special day was hard until I met Wendy Stewart from Candid Photos of a Lifetime. Wendy is such a dream to deal with right from start to finish. she is a beautiful lady who cracks jokes all day long to capture the most natural pictures and smiles, she was so brilliant, she starts her day when the sun is rising to when the newly weds head back to their room for a last good night kiss picture or what ever you request, jumping into the pool, having a wine anything you want, she guides you through every step of the way. Candid photos are very affordable and brilliant quality. We could not have picked anyone better to take our wedding pictures. From the bottom of our hearts Thank you we love them.!

Simon & Amanda (Orange)
From our very first meeting, until the wedding, Wendy at Candid Photos For A Lifetime was amazing.
Like so many people out there we had never been married, didn’t know what we were doing, didn’t know what we needed or wanted, and didn’t know what to expect.
She helped us to relax, helped us to choose a package that suited us and our budget with no pressure, understood our families issues, and the end results are incredible. Plus she is a great person to get along with. Making the entire  experience even better.  The whole process from start to finish with payment, times, dates, and information needed is kept as stress and hassle free as possible, we found that was a massive help, especially when so many other things leading up to the day got a little stressful.
The photos she took are amazing and the level of service she provides is second to none. We have showed our family and friends the photos that Wendy took on our special day and they are amazed. They keep mentioning the quality is great, products are professional, and saying to us that she is a great photographer, that she isn’t rude, or pushy, like other photographers they have met, and allows for photos we wanted, and our relatives to take some they wanted.
If we were ever to get our vows renewed or we have a special event, Wendy at Candid Photos For A Lifetime is the only photographer on our list.

Nicola Handel (Mudgee)
Organizing your special day is a “big deal” and can be stressful at times but one thing that was made with ease was the photography .
Wendy Stewert is a down to earth but professional photographer who dedicates herself to providing both the bride and groom with lasting and heart felt memories that keep you coming back for more.

The quality of the photos were beautiful and very professional with the deliverery of the finished product fast.
Wendy has the personal touch of delivering the photos to your door and even inviting to suggestions in producing your personal album.
Our wedding day was a day you would read about in a fairy tale and “Candid Photos of A Lifetime ” captured these moments for Richard and I to cherish for many years to come
A professional photographer when we first met, a true friend when the photos were delivered.
Thank you Wendy for being apart of our special day and leaving us with the memories we hold closest to our hearts.

Tania Shepherd (Picton)
We planned our wedding for December 2014… to be held in Picton, NSW. We contacted photographers in Sydney and were discouraged by the prices – they just seemed so inflated… I looked at their work but it was the cream of the crop stuff – it was staged and looked magazine like… that was not my hubby to be and I. I spoke to my cousin who had been married in October 2012 about what he looked for in his photographer as I had enjoyed her personality and the work she did. I looked through their album and decided I just needed to find someone like her and then it occurred to me that maybe just maybe she would travel to Picton as her website said she had gone to the USA for a wedding. I figured there was no harm in asking! From the get go, Wendy was lovely and relaxed and fit in with our relaxed nature – she asked what photos were important and her costs were reasonable – she didn’t want my arm, leg and first born as payment for her services! Wendy made contact with us in the lead up to the wedding and arrived in Sydney the day before – she found out and confirmed what shots were the must haves and got the lay of the unfamiliar venue. The morning of the wedding – she was an absolute godsend. She was such an integral part of our day that I just cannot find the words to describe how much she did – even though she would be modest and say she just stood back and took photos. I physically met Wendy the day before my wedding even though we had been in phone/email contact for months but may I say it felt like she was part of the gang – she got hubby to be to look so relaxed and calm and really captured his joyful side in the shots. We recieved many compliments on our photographer from our guests – most thought she was a friend of ours. I cannot recommend Wendy highly enough – no tasks is to great for her and she goes above and beyond what I had expected the photographer would do. The shots are glorious and such a treasure to us. Service A++++++ with many smiles

Kat Rissler (Bathurst)
Wendy from Candid Photos of a Lifetime photographed our wedding and we have had endless comments on how beautiful the photo’s were and how great Wendy was on the day! She really went the extra mile and was so easy to get along with. I couldn’t have asked for a better photographer and couldn’t imagine that there is another photographer out there that could be so fun, professional and exceptionally great at capturing every special moment.

Simone Wells (Orange)
My husband and I searched for a wedding photographer who wasn’t going to charge us a fortune but more importantly who was going to listen to our ideas for our special day. I sat down with Wendy Stewart and over a very relaxing cup of coffee put forward a few ideas that I had and wanted for our album. She not only listened to our ideas but made some fabulous and creative suggestions. On our wedding day Wendy was great nothing was a problem and everything ran smoothly. The best though was seeing our wedding photos for the first time. I had tears, she captured every moment and even the ones I didn’t even realize had happened. I would highly recommend candid photos of a lifetime. Thank you Wendy xxx

Elaine Rainer (Bathurst)

Thank you so much for capturing our wedding day on film. As you know, organising a wedding and for everything to come together takes time, patience and cooperation. From the moment we spoke to you on the phone, the stress of finding the perfect photographer were gone.
I can not speak highly enough of how easy you are to get along with let alone the incredible images you shot of us. All of our guests share the same opinion and constantly mentioned how impressed they were with your service and praised how approachable and courteous you were while maintaining such a professional standard. Thank you.
From start to finish you have well and truly exceeded our every expectation and feel that we have somewhat underpaid your for a service, that to us, was priceless.
In most cases you only get what you pay for but in our case we know we got far more than that.
Thank you again for being a part of and photographing the best day of our lives. Mick and Naomi O’Hara.

Wendy is AMAZING! She not only has excellent photography skills, but she has something very few professional photographers actually have — an ‘eye’ for photography. She sees views, closeups, scenes that other photographers do not and captures the essence and emotion of the day. At Wendy’s very first wedding as a photographer, we did not know what to expect and had another professional photographer there as well. We did not use any of the other photographer’s work as Wendy’s was SO much better. Her photos and her books, creatively and wonderfully made, are fabulous. She is professional, courteous and has a great personality; she is a joy to work with. She has attention to detail for all of her portraits, yet a wonderful creative talent that captures those great spontaneous moments. I strongly recommend her!!

Wendy did an amazing photography job on our special day. On the lead up to our wedding Wendy made sure she knew exactly what particular photos were the most important to capture and successed in getting those for us on the day. We are over the moon with our photo book that was included in our package. Everyone who has seen it absolutely loves it, it is such a neat and tidy idea as we don’t have to worry about loosing any of our photos and it feels just like reading our own story book. Fantastic photos, beautiful photo book, great price and a very friendly photographer, Couldn’t ask for anything more!
