  • Hello!

    My name is Katie, I am a photographer and I like to shoot:

    Weddings, portraits, pets, couples and kids.
    Mum's happy tears and toddler tantrums.
    Baby bathtime and puppy playtime.
    Kiddy feet and bridal shoes.
    Connection and emotion.
    Quirky and kitsch.
    Documentary style.
    Lifestyle.
    You.

    Have camera, will travel. But if you'd like a photographer closer to home, look here.

Tim + Anna: Married {Brisbane Wedding Photographer}

I can only describe Tim and Anna’s wedding day as happy. It was so happy. Anna did not stop grinning and it was infectious – I couldn’t look at her without smiling. Their day was simple, filled with joy and they were surrounded by people whose love for them was obvious. Their wedding was a first for me, my first opportunity to shoot a ‘first look’. I am a total convert – everyone should do it. It’s not traditional, but it managed to be a beautiful, intimate moment, even on a crowded Saturday afternoon in South Bank. It was a moment that totally sucked any tension right out of the air and everyone was completely relaxed and happy for photos afterwards. Then it was onto the ceremony in the Red Box at the QLD State Library, followed by more photos. After we’d shot in the library for a bit, I asked Anna if she’d like to get to her reception and she replied that she’d like more photos. Another first for me! Sometimes trying to get clients to feel comfortable in front of the camera is very tough (and that includes me, I am the worst), so to have someone enjoy the process was awesome. We did eventually make it to the reception at the Gallery of Modern Art, where everyone ate and drank and merried, overlooking the superb Brisbane River and its surrounds. Tim and Anna – thank you for having me along and choosing me to capture your day. I headed back home with a slightly sore face from all the smiling I’d been doing all day and your dance floor shots are making me grin all over again.

Cameron + Adlia {Noosa Wedding Photographer}

I photographed these two cuties on Mt Tinbeerwah on Easter Sunday. It was another glorious sun drenched afternoon and while smiling onlookers marched by, we stopped and took in the scenery. Adlia and Cameron will be married in August, with their ceremony in the Noosa Botanic Gardens and the reception at Cameron’s parents place.

 

Very much looking forward to it guys:)

Fran + Ray {Noosa Engagement Photographer}

Fran and Ray. Ray and Fran. All engaged and stuff and preparing to get married in a teeny tiny ceremony in October. As you can see, they’re really damn cute and quite obviously made for each other. Photographed in Noosa, but not on the beachy backdrop we are used to seeing – Fran asked for something a bit more industrial, which was music to my ears (eyes?).

Very much looking forward to your wedding, guys.

with all the joy you bring
you look like gold

when a new day has just begun

you look like gold…’

Kristy + Pete: Married {Noosa Wedding Photographer}

It was almost a year ago that Sydneysiders, Kristy and Pete, contacted me about shooting their wedding. I was thrilled to be asked, not only because they are lovely people, but because they were getting married in Noosa. Hooray! A local wedding for me. Even though I live here, I rarely shoot weddings here – I tend to end up in Brisbane or further. The prospect of driving 10 minutes home to my own bed was very comforting, as was knowing I would be shooting in a place I know like the back of my hand.

When I arrived, the girls were very quietly and calmly having their hair and make up done – this is always the case with the ladies – pacing themselves for the big day. Then I popped over to see the boys who (and this is also always the case) were in no hurry, drinking beer and listening to some 90s R&B (ok, so the 90s R&B is not always the case).* Still, the usual mad shower and ironing panic happened as I arrived. The boys were super cooperative and polite, perhaps the first ones to ever thank me for taking their photos. Then it was back to see the ladies again, where things were getting a bit more real and Kristy got into that amazing sparkly dress.

Noosa being the fickle beast that she is, put on a gorgeous sunny day – but also provided an epic wind. It was so windy that Kristy, to her absolute credit, did away with her veil at the beginning of the ceremony and laughed about it. After the ceremony we headed to the National Park for some images of the newly married couple. Kristy, to her credit again, thought nothing of trekking the dirt path in her Jimmy Choos. High five, lady. And then it was party time, where I was treated as one of the guests. Thank you so much guys, you made my job easy.

 

*I would like you all to know, I’ve had Montell Jordan’s ‘This Is How We Do It’ in my head for 3 weeks.
