Oh hey there! My name is Lee and I live and breathe Photography (just ask my Husband!)! I am the dreamer, light chaser and photographer extraordinaire (as quoted by my Brides!) at this Sunshine Coast boutique studio. The quality you see here is what you will get with your images, no exceptions.
"That's great, but how can you help me Lee?"
On wedding days, I have often been called a photo ninja as I am extremely unobtrusive and like to let the day unfold naturally, yet I will be there when you need me, to give you gentle direction and guidance. My role is not only as your photographer, I'm pretty much a Bridesmaid without a dress, there, I said it! (fixing hair/makeup, holding and rearranging your dress, calming your nerves and I'm there for the guys also, putting on buttonholes, fixing collars, adjusting bow ties, calming nerves! I love being a photographer and I never want to do anything else!
I’m extremely lucky to be based on the gorgeous Sunshine Coast and I just absolutely love all things weddings! What's not to love?!
I service all surrounding areas, including Maleny, Montville, Mooloolaba, Noosa, Kenilworth and even Fraser Island, Moreton Island & NZ to name a few. I love to travel, especially a good road trip!
Not so sure about being in front of the camera?! Don't worry, you're not alone! That's what I'm here for, to calm your nerves & help you relax so we can just focus on having fun! Please see my testimonials page for real life feedback about what I'm talking about..
My vision for your portraits is similar, if you have children, let’s get them outside playing in the dirt/sand! Bring your fur babies along if you have any! Whatever you do as a family/couple, I want to hear about so we can customise a photo shoot to suit you!
2017 saw me take home QLD's number 1 wedding photographer of the year with ABIA, then third in 2018 & taking number 1 again in 2019! Talk about a roller coaster! I wonder what 2020 will bring..
In 2006 I was lucky enough to live in San Diego, CA. This is where I started studying photography and then went on to be a professional Wedding and Portrait photographer in 2007 when I returned to Australia. I have sold Art all around the world and been lucky enough to have my own solo exhibition! I am also extremely lucky to be able to share with you that my experience includes being the only photographer for Disney on their promotional road trip to 3 different States as well as NZ, plus I have been commissioned by the Royal Australian Navy to capture their Ships Formal Dinners.
I grew up with 4 Brothers and my Dad is a mechanic so I have developed a love affair for old classic cars ( My Sunday driver is a yellow '73 Celica named Candy). I love my Husband who supports me and my little business without question (I wouldn't be here without him) and our 3 children, who are crazier than me! We have two little ratbag dog's, Jack and Millie (Jack Russell's) who would follow me to weddings if they could!
How much more would you like to know…? Ask away! I am an open book!
Can’t wait to meet you!!
