HELLO! Great to see you here! I’m Lisa, a relaxed and fun, natural light photographer specializing in weddings, family and lifestyle.
I live by the seaside on the beautiful Sunshine Coast with my two gorgeous boys, Jaco and Bodhi, and my wonderful husband of 10 years. They are my everything. When I am not out and about photographing weddings you can find me down by the ocean or out on a paddle board with my boys…
I have been photography weddings and people for over 10 years now. I feel blessed to enter into such special times in peoples lives. I love being able to capture those wonderful moments and memories.
My photography style is natural and romantic. I prefer a more candid, relaxed style of capturing photographs and I aim to create timeless images that won’t date. I won’t make you do awkward poses, or make you stop smiling and I won’t make you feel like you are on my photo shoot. It is your day and I am there to capture everything. Natural, beautiful and simple.
I hope you enjoy looking through my blog where you can find some of my favourite weddings. I’d love to meet you, so let’s make a date and chat about all things wedding! x Lisa

A few Q & A’s about me.
Where / when did you train? I studied photography at Sydney’s famous National Art School. I also studied Set and Costume Design at NIDA which I think helped to hone my eye for styling and design. I have worked at a number of Sydney’s best photography studios and have been shooting weddings for over 9 years now. In that time I have photographed over 150 weddings!
Where you passion for photography came from? My passion began when I bought my first Pentax camera as a newbie 18 year old and learnt the fine art of film photography at art school. The hours at school learning how to process and print my own film really brought the magic of photography home to me. Being in a darkroom, processing my own film is perhaps my first LOVE moment for photography.
What has been your favourite wedding to shoot and why? Wow, there have been so many so its hard to choose! My favourite weddings are the ones that make me cry at speeches, that have a lot of personal touches and home made pieces for me to photograph and I LOVE seeing the bride and groom totally happy, natural and in love on their wedding day… it just shines through in the photographs and makes my job even more wonderful than it already is.
Tell me about your family/kids/pets etc? I live a happy simple life by the seaside on the beautiful Sunshine Coast with my two gorgeous little boys Jaco & Bodhi and my wonderful husband, who works as a helicopter rescue crewman (yes he has a cool job!). Oh, we also have a lot of pet Gekkos!
