For over 30 years, the name Peter Rickards Photography has been synonymous with striking product images, beautiful photographs of newborns, stunning portraits of families & couples and of course amazing wedding photography.  

It is this vast experience and knowledge I have that I impart on those who work within Peter Rickards Photography along with their own individual talent and skill set.

Hi, I'm Peter and it's been my love of photography from an early age that that led me onto a career as a professional photographer. Over 2000 weddings have been photographed by Peter Rickards and his team across Australia from Darwin to Melbourne.  Some of my very early brides have come back for family portraits over and over, some now for three generations.

I currently lead a small but awesome team of very talented and passionate photographers.  We all have the same idea about capturing and creating the most stunning photographs - it's about finding the beauty in a moment as it unfolds; it's the art of story telling, not posing; it's about looking for the right light and capturing those precious, intimate looks and feelings.

Our Team...

Peter Rickards

Peter's unparalleled approach to photography is a mix of his deft creativity, advanced technical skills and thorough understanding of what is required from his clients.  They speak highly of Peter, not only because of his stunning photography but also of his professional yet personal approach.

Put your memories in the hands of someone you can trust.

Sue Rickards

Sue is the driving force behind Peter Rickards Photography, handling all the behind the scenes aspects of the business, from managing accounts, staff pays, correspondance, appointments and much more.  Sue also has a flair for creating our stunning wedding albums and compiling the video slideshows.

And when she is not busy with all that, Sue can often be seen out with the team with a camera in hand. 

Kimberley Anderson

Kimberley has been a valuable member of Peter Rickards Photography  since commencing in early 2015 as a photographer/image editor.  Kimberley has completed both her Cert 4 of Photoimaging and Diploma of Photoimaging.  

Kimberley loves all styles of photography, but has a real passion for people photography, where capturing special moments and memories at weddings and portrait sessions is so rewarding.

Matt Hickey

Matt has been capturing high-end imagery as a professional photographer since 2012.  His passion for photography extends from his Grandfather who developed and printed his own images.  Matt continues this art, processing black & white film in his own darkroom, but adds a modern touch with digital post processing techniques.  

Matt has a wonderful ability to make clients feel relaxed and comfortable in front of the camera and this is evident in his work.

Shell Allom

Shell is a wife, a mother and a professional photographer.

Things Shell is most passionate about are her family & friends, her work and creating the best version of herself.  Shell has a passion for health and fitness, loves the beach and her favourite colour is turquoise.  Shell started her career as a professional photographer in 2008 when she first opened her own business.
