Bonjour and welcome to Tulieve Photography!
As a Port Douglas and Cairns-based wedding photographer and videographer I understand that planning a wedding can be overwhelming, and you want everything to be just right. Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life, and it deserves to be captured perfectly.

Let me help you make your wedding day stress-free and enjoyable, allowing you to fully immerse yourself at the moment and cherish the memories for generations to come.
WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY CAIRNS
PORT DOUGLAS WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
Your wedding day is a culmination of months or even years of planning, and it's a day you'll want to remember for the rest of your life. As a wedding photographer, I understand how important it is to capture those special moments that make your day truly unique and memorable.
I believe that the best photographs come from capturing real, genuine moments rather than staged and posed shots. My aim is to make you feel comfortable and at ease throughout your wedding day, allowing me to capture those special moments and memories that you will cherish forever.
Finding the right wedding photographer can be a challenge, as you want to find someone who not only has a style that you love but also someone who can understand and bring your vision to life. I work closely with couples to understand their unique story, capturing their love and personalities in a way that feels true to them.
With a blend of photojournalistic reportage and modern lifestyle portraiture, I aim to create stunning images that showcase your wedding day in a truly timeless manner. From getting ready to your grand exit, I will be there to document every moment of your special day so that you can relax and enjoy your time with loved ones.
A FEW KIND WORDS
NURIA & SIMON
"Since the beginning, Mehdi was very good at communicating with us and making sure we got everything that we wanted."
"We had an amazing experience having Mehdi from Tulieve Photography shoot our wedding. We had a very small ceremony at the beach on a day that wasn’t as sunny as expected but Mehdi knew what he was doing and made us feel comfortable and at ease. Since the beginning, Mehdi was very good at communicating with us and making sure we got everything that we wanted from the pictures in the time we had. Although we only booked pictures with him, Mehdi went out of his way to help us with our own video recording which turned out really good thanks to him. We probably wouldn’t have any decent videos/audio if it wasn’t for his help. He was always very professional and helpful and his priority was always to cater to our needs. He gave us sneak peeks of the photoshoot before he was completely done with it so we could share some pictures. He set up an online gallery and we got the cutest USB with the final edited high-resolution pictures super fast. The pictures turned out amazing! We are very happy we found him and worked with him on our special day. We would totally recommend him to anyone wanting good quality, beautiful pictures for any special occasion :) Simon and Nuria ❤️"
CHERYL & KANE
"Our Wedding day was already stressful, but he was so polite and calming - he put everyone at ease"
"Mehdi is a highly-skilled professional photographer with an eye for detail and exceptional skills. Our Wedding day was already stressful, but he was so polite and calming - he put everyone at ease - which shows in the beautiful photos. Fun, friendly, and great with the children too. We can't say enough good things about Medhi and his relaxed, friendly nature, and the unique, remarkable way he captured our special day and the idyllic scenery perfectly."
GRACE & CHRIS
"Everyone is blown away at the moments you were able to capture"
"We are so incredibly grateful to have had Mehdi from Tulieve Photography capture our day. As people who don't enjoy photos, Mehdi made it so natural and easy - it was like he wasn't even there. We were able to be ourselves and he captured just that - which is exactly what we wanted! His quick communication and calm nature in the lead-up and on the big day were incredible. Everyone is blown away at the moments you were able to capture, and how quickly you were able to process the finished product. We can't wait to see you again in the future when we have kids!"
MY STYLE AND APPROACH
I understand that choosing your Wedding Photographer in Cairns or Port Douglas is more than just great photographs. It is also about how you will remember your wedding day!! Knowing firsthand how special this journey is, and how nervous you may feel, my mission is to make you comfortable and be true to yourself.
I'll be there to capture your day as it unfolds, creating unique and personal memories that you can cherish for a lifetime. My approach is a blend of journalistic reportage and modern lifestyle portraiture, which allows me to document your day as it is while still creating beautiful and stylish images.
When it comes to your wedding day, timing is everything. That's why I am always here to help out with the finer details like your timeline for the day, to ensure that everything runs smoothly and that you have time to enjoy each moment. I can also offer recommendations for other wedding vendors, such as florists, hair and makeup artists, and wedding planners, who can help bring your vision to life if you need it.
I believe that your wedding day should be all about you, and my job as your photographer is to capture the essence of who you are as a couple. I want you to look back on your wedding day and see not just a beautiful event, but a celebration of your unique love story. That's why I take the time to get to know you both before the big day, so that I can understand what makes your relationship special and capture it in my photos and videos. I take great pride in the trust that my clients place in me to document their special day, and I approach every wedding with a deep sense of responsibility and dedication.

DO YOU PROVIDE ONLY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY SERVICES? My main focus is solely Wedding Photography and Videography in Cairns, Port Douglas, Palm Cove, Atherton and Tasmania. HOW EARLY SHOULD WE BOOK YOUR WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY OR VIDEOGRAPHY SERVICES? Wedding photography tends to book earlier than videography. It’s better to book your photographer as soon as you have set the wedding date, venue and your heart on the artist behind the camera that you would like to have to capture your wedding day. Most couples will book me between 12-18 months prior to their wedding date, however, popular dates during the peak season will often book 24 months in advance. In saying that, if I am available I can take your booking with as short notice as 48 hours. WHAT PHOTOGRAPHY AND VIDEOGRAPHY EQUIPMENT DO YOU USE? DO YOU HAVE BACKUP? I have all the necessary high-end professional photography and videography gear to capture the beautiful and memorable moments of your day. But if you really want to know I shoot with Nikon's latest Full Frame Z series cameras, five in total, including backups. I also have a wide range of professional lenses that shoot wide-angle, portrait & close-up photos. I also carry, strobes, pocket strobes, video lights, diffusers, gimbals, drones, lots of spare batteries + memory cards and heaps more. DO YOU OFFER DESTINATION WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY AND VIDEOGRAPHY? I mainly provide videography and photography services in Cairns, Port Douglas, Palm Cove, Atherton, and Tasmania. If you are planning to organise your event outside these locations, send an enquiry. I will be more than happy to help you with your BIG day preparation and capture your memories wherever it is. HOW MUCH DO YOU CHARGE FOR WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY/VIDEOGRAPHY? As all wedding celebrations are unique, photography and videography will also be different according to your need and vision. I am always happy to tailor a unique à la carte collection just for you. However, my wedding photography packages start at $3100 but most of my couples book me for Photo + Video and my packages start at $5500. HOW MUCH IS THE DEPOSIT TO SECURE OUR DATE? All packages require a $500 deposit to secure your date and the balance is due 4 weeks before your wedding date.
