BEHIND THE LENS
My transition from landscape photographer to wedding photographer 10 years ago allowed me to infuse my love of the outdoors with capturing couples on their most special day. I like to think of my style as “not in your face photography.” Having your friends and family think I am a guest on your day – so that the natural, candid shots can be captured in a way that allows you and your new partner to be as relaxed as possible, with the love and emotion you have for each other on your wedding day shining through without the forced poses and stress of someone shoving a camera in your face and getting you to say cheese!
Living on a farm in the Southern Highlands, NSW I am naturally drawn to country weddings, or any wedding that has nature and the outdoors as a big part of the day. I have had brides happily wander in the rain, climb out on logs over rivers, tramp through paddocks, hike in pine forests, crawl through barb wire fences and scale down cliff faces to get that perfect shot! So if you like to think of yourself as adventurous and up for anything, I might be the right photographer for you!
My wife and I have been working together at Magnus Agren Photography for 8 years, although with the arrival of our 2 kids, Bud and Pip (plus a Border Collie, Galah, Chooks and some Cows), Bel now spends less time behind the lens and focuses on editing and album creations.
“Magnus was exceptional on the day. His professionalism and experience shone through in not only the photos, but added to the experience of our wedding day…..”

“We would like to express our extreme gratitude to Magnus in capturing such timeless memories of our Wedding Day. We really appreciate the hard work you put in, you were thorough and accommodating of our requests but most importantly you helped to keep us relaxed with your patient and professional approach. The quality and presentation of your photographs were second to none and we have had nothing but rave reviews from friends and family who have seen the quality of your album. We would happily recommend your services to anyone getting married (in fact we already have). We had a fantastic day and cannot thank you enough for capturing such great memories and your part in our special day. “
– Mitch & Al
“Chris and I just wanted to thank you for the photos, they’re so great! We are so grateful that you could bring such a calm and relaxed vibe to our wedding day. We really appreciate that you could capture those special moments for us so brilliantly. “
– Mel & Chris
“We could not be happier with our wedding photos from Magnus. He started the morning with the bridal party getting ready and was with us all day until we left the reception. He took so many amazing photos and knew of beautiful locations after the ceremony as well as taking panoramic photos on the steps of the church and reception dance floor which captured the mood of the day. After the wedding, Magnus was very open in communicating how long it would take to provide the photos and we are very happy with the final product. We would recommend Magnus to anyone. Thanks again for an amazing job!”
– Kate & Matt
“From start to finish you kept calm, kept smiling and captured the most incredible shots of our special day. Even got our inside Billy Madison jokes! You were exactly what we were looking for and our friends and family can’t stop talking about how great our photographer was! Thanks again Magnus!”
– Jarrod & Jodi
“We were so impressed with our photos and the service we got from Magnus that we had him back to do our family portraits when our daughter was born. Magnus is professional, knowledgeable and relaxed and the proof is in the product – fantastic photos! We didn’t feel like we were having photos taken by a photographer, but rather by a friend.“
