The Holdens 

National & State AIPP APPA Award Winning Wedding Photographers. Based in the heart of the CBD. Stuart runs the successful blog Humans of Western Australia and teaches photography. This multi - faceted view of photography merges fine art portraiture with classic, elegant wedding photography set at an achievable budget within an excellent time frame. The Holdens process 27 weddings a year in order to focus on teaching and charity projects. Every cent of your money will go towards a Veterans initiative called Operation Give A Damn - a creative program designed to help reduce Veteran suicide. As a Army Veteran himself, Stuart is passionate about using his art for a great purpose other than providing images to clients. Have a look at our images closely, look for the story. This is what we want to create for you. In return we would love fun loving, easy going clients who can embrace the fun and artistic side of the wedding day, creating life long memories of love and joy. 

"Formerly, Stuart Holden - Wedding Photographer, The Holdens was a rebranding idea that came to life over the dinner table. As usual it was chaos with the sounds of laughter filling our house. It was then that I knew where the direction of our business would be taking us in the next five years. Everything we do is family, no man is an island and it takes a village to raise a child. These aspects continue to drive our business as a family unit. We believe that family businesses are the backbone of our beautiful country and a heritage that our grandparents imparted onto us before they passed. So we dedicate this rebranding to you, our future clients, in the hopes that we will get to know you and your family and share ours with you. Welcome to our family." - Stuart Holden, The Holdens.
