Hey Pete!

I was talking about you last night - a friend is planning a wedding and I was raving about what a brilliant photographer I had so I thought I'd put my gratitude in words. It's been over 18 months since our wedding and I love getting out my wedding photos. I knew our photos were amazing at the time but I think now that I've paid more attention to wedding photos post-getting married I have even more appreciation for how absolutely outstanding they are!! I have seen some very ordinary wedding photos, and have yet to see any other photographer capture the full day quite like you can - you really are in a league of your own! I hope you are still shooting weddings and still enjoying it.

Hi Pete,

I got the discs last night. I actually have no words to describe how happy I am with them! Except maybe ‘OMG’ ‘Perfect’ and ‘Thankyou!!’ you seemed to just be at every angle all at once and captured all the emotion and memories of the day. Half the time we didn’t even realise you were there snapping away which proved to be some of the best shots of them all. Also thanks again for ‘trashing the dress’ shots. I am so glad I went through with it and although I am yet to get my dress dry cleaned we did clean it our self a bit and left it out to dry and you could not tell one bit that it had been in the water!

PS. I emailed a few pics to my mum – I JUST got a reply then of one word: ‘Perfect!’ haha

About the Mosaic. ``Not a single person has walked in and not commented. Everyone thinks its great. Thanks.``

Roxy & Cory

Pete you did an amazing job with our wedding day photographs. You were so wonderful to deal with right from the moment we met up until we had our album in our hands. Despite the terrible weather, you were calm and confident during the entire day which kept us all at ease and it definitely shows in the photographs. We cannot thank you enough for everything. Words cannot describe how happy we are with the photographs and our album which we will treasure forever. We will be recommending you to all of our friends and family in the future! Thanks again

I would particularly like to thank Pete Battye (Real Image Photography) who was absolutely amazing. He did not stop the whole day and even had a back up plan for the weather. Our photographs are sensational - we have had such a hard task in choosing photographs for our album as they are all so good. (Comments from Coast to Country website)

Alix & Matt

Beautiful photos as always Pete - you never fail to capture the essence, the feeling and the fun of every couple's special day. Looking through all the photos is like watching a video of the day as it progressed and it is the same for every wedding you shoot. I don't even know the people and I still enjoy viewing all the photos with a smile on my dial!! You are an amazing photographer as well as an amazing person. Looking forward to the next time we work together!

Anita Gill (Celebrant)

We love the photos, really really love them, I cry every time I look at them, so does my mum and Ian's mum. Sincerely thank you for your beautiful work. We are so grateful to have you there for our special day. Your photos are more than amazing!

Thank you so much Pete! Our guest Graham who is experienced in photography said that you put his photos in shame. Everybody involved gave you great comments and said they would recommend you to their family and friends. We can't thank you enough for capturing beautiful moments in the best day of our lives. We appreciate your creative ideas, honest opinions, generous help and endless enthusiasm.

Minnie & Ian

Oh my goodness, they are wonderful! Wonderful doesn't even do them justice! AMAZEBALLS!

You have truly out done yourself! I emailed them to my Mum and she said she has spent the last 24 hours going through them over and over again. I had classes today, didn't go, spent the whole day going show my friends and family!
Thank you for your truly amazing talent!

Harriette and Luke.

All really good comments and positive feedback also on your crowd control skills! We also noted how flexiable and professional you were with regards to time management/changing schedule and working with other vendors. Felicity and I both feel that we made the perfect choice and we can’t recommend you enough!

You were so wonderful on our wedding day and we had such a great time with you! The boys have all said how much they enjoyed the photo part of the day (no mean feet as usually all of them are quite shy) The girls of course loved every minute and none of us have stopped laughing.

We'll be recommending you to all our family and friends and so many of our friends have already told us how wonderful they think you were!

They are amazing. Thank you thank you thank you!

Rachelle & Marcus

Hi Pete. I wanted to officially thank you for capturing our special day in Feb. You were so relaxed yet worked your ass off all day! You made both myself and Hayden plus the bridal party feel so comfortable. The images are amazing I love them all. I hope you were able to relax enough to enjoy dinner or grab a drink in the evening, you definitely deserved it! Thanks again for making it such a fun experience.

Jenny & Hayden


Just had a look through. Your work speaks for itself! They are awesome! Thank you, you have done an amazing job!

Our photographer Pete Battye was brilliant, he is one of the most laid back guys, he makes you feel completely comfortable and we weren't afraid to ask him anything. Pete was full of awesome ideas and was willing to give pretty much anything a go. Once we got our photos back we were blown away, all you have to do is look at his work it speaks for itself! (comments from coast to country website)

Carissa & Regan

Crystal & Wade

Our wedding photographer Pete Battye from Real Image Photography was amazing no words can explain the amount of hard work and effort he puts into that camera to gets the most amazing shots. Pete went to extra effort for us with our cake cutting photos, as we had a bit of a mishap with the cake. He knew how devastated we were about it, so he photoshopped them and they turned out beyond amazing. He is relaxed, easy going and is open to any suggestions that you any have. I would recommend him to anyone and his pricing is incredible.

Alisha & Simon

Thanks again for all of your hard work. You were an absolute pleasure to deal with and we will certainly recommend you to anyone who is having their wedding down south.

Thank you so much Pete. I got teary looking at them. You did a fantastic job 🙂

Made us feel so comfortable and you captured all the great memories which we will treasure in our hearts for the rest of our days. Keep up the good work, your a great photographer.

Janelle & Colin

Pete did an amazing job. He was there very early and stayed until the very end, and never lost momentum or energy. He coordinated the day and our guests without fuss or stress and I really think we couldn’t have done it all without him. He managed to get so many close up and beautiful shots of our day and we hardly ever felt that we had to ‘pose’ he had a great manner. Also, the package deal from him was very affordable and so worth it, and the end result of the photos were fantastic we really couldn’t be happier! Highly recommend! (comments from Coast To Country website)

Kate & Tim
