WHAT'S THE GO WITH LITTLE BLACK BOW?
Little Black Bow Photography was started by owner and head photographer Dearne (Dea) Penman. With her background in art and photography and love for old fashioned commitment and story telling, photographing families and weddings was something that happened organically.
Dea’s team mainly photograph weddings in Newcastle, Hunter Valley, Port Stephens, Central Coast and Great Lakes, but are happy to go further on request!
“It’s important to us to be able to tell your story as it happens, this is why we pride ourselves on making the experience relaxed, fun and as non obtrusive as possible!” Dea says.
Little Black Bow Photography were awarded the ‘Wedding Industry Experts Award’ for ‘Most Popular Photographer in Newcastle & NSW’ in 2014 and 2015 and were an ABIA finalist in 2015. In 2016 we were the Official Photographer for Love in the Vines wedding festival. Dea’s work has also been featured on various bridal blogs and in bridal magazines such as White, the Wedding Playbook, Vintage Bride Magazine, Hunter Valley Wedding Planner, Hunter Valley Lifestyle Mag and Polka Dot Bride.
"Could not recommend Dea enough. She is friendly, hilarious and absolutely amazing. We are so happy we chose Dea to be our wedding photographer, we are over the moon with every single photo she took"
"Dea is a photography Goddess! From camera awkward individuals - the very first second meeting her, we both felt super at ease, and effortless, hardly even realising the photos were being snapped. Choosing her for our wedding day, there was no question at all. Dea captures such beautiful, candid, and heartfelt moments. Her bubbly and relaxed personality is everything we were hoping for, helping settle any wedding jitters. We can not thank you enough Dea for our recent wedding. I can't stop looking at our photos, it feels like a fairytale!"
