Recommended Suppliers

The best of the best!

One of the advantages of choosing Cole Studios is that have been around for a very long time and we know everyone. We have seen the best and the worst suppliers in the wedding industry and can give you clear straight advice on booking the many services that need to come together to make your wedding day spectacular.

To be considered for our preferred supplier list, a company has to continually provide good service and have a stellar reputation. They must be reasonably priced, reliable, friendly and customer focused.

Most of all they must have the best product in their field and their attitude must be positive.

Our philosophy at Cole Studios is that we will always support the best suppliers. We have photographed over 1700 Weddings over nearly twenty years of Wedding Photography. We have worked with the companies listed below many times. We don’t just recommend anyone, we only recommend the best.

Shane Hintz – Videography

One of the biggest regrets we hear from couples after their wedding day is they did not get a wedding video. Before the wedding they convince themselves with all the usual points like we wont ever watch it, so and so doesn’t watch his or hers etc…. but after the wedding nearly everyone we have asked regrets not getting a video. Check this out… 98% of brides surveyed said….

The other mistake people make is deciding not to get a video THEN deciding to get a video just a few short weeks / months from the Wedding. At this time it is too late to get a good videographer. Cole Studios works very well with and recommends Capture You Videography. Having a photography / video team that works well together is crucial, it can make (or break) your day! our businesses have worked together for over ten years and we know exactly how each other works.

Capture You Videography – Professional Videographer and Cole Studios preferred supplier. www.captureyou.com.au

Jacinta Hansen – Makeup

Jacinta has been in the makeup and beauty industry for nearly 20years and in my opinion the best in the business. Jacinta does nearly all of our weddings and she is a valuable member of the Cole studios team. Jacinta is our first recommended makeup artist. With only using the best available products to ensure compatibility with our professional lighting equipment. Not only does she follow exceptional hygiene standards, Jacinta also pride’s herself with being on time and efficient application. Above all, her focus is client satisfaction.
