Know us Better
Located in Brunswick West and just 6kms north from Melbourne's CBD, Studio 477 Photographic Art is a boutique photographic studio established in 1980.

My name is Sam Vacirca and my photographic journey began at a very young age while assisting my father photographing weddings. From the moment my father handed me my first SLR film camera instantly my passion for the art of photography began and I would seize the opportunity to photograph anything and everything.

On completion of my secondary education I pursued higher education in photography at the Photographic Imaging Centre and was honoured to become an AIPP accredited professional photographer by the only recognised professional imaging membership body in Australia known as the Australian Institute of Professional Photography.

Today along with my team we aim to create a relaxed environment at every wedding in order to document the love and emotion that undoubtedly encapsulates one of the most important days of your life. Whilst no two love stories are the same you can rest assured we will document your love story with timeless images that will evoke emotion and inspire passion for the rest of your life.

We would love to discuss your special day in more detail, contact us today to arrange a personal consultation.

How do we receive our images?

Should we order a wedding album?
Absolutely!!! Investing in an album will be the best decision you will make, you will love flicking through the tangible pages of your very own love story whilst reminiscing on one of the most memorable events of your life. Wedding albums can be purchased either before or after the wedding, however, by ordering an album prior to the wedding you will benefit from our special offers and discounted rates.
Do you travel interstate/overseas?
Yes, we love destination weddings. Feel free to contact us to discuss further.
Are the high resolution images on the USB watermarked?
No watermark just beautifully colour corrected images.
What if we dont like being photographed?
As a matter of fact not many do. We aim to capture the day as natural as possible and avoid any awkward poses. Just interact with one another with love and laughter and let us capture it all.
Will one photographer be able to capture the whole day?
Most of the times yes, if there are going to be traditions happening simultaneously at each home prior to the ceremony then we can offer a second photographer during these times.
