Welcome! I'm Emma!

I'm a mother of dachshunds, wife of a green thumb, daughter of a musician and a maker of images living on the beautiful Sunshine Coast on Gubbi Gubbi land.


As a Sunshine Coast photographer, I've mainly focused on wedding imagery for the last 14 years. Since 2007 I have traveled around this beautiful country and overseas as a destination wedding photographer to capture some incredible celebrations for couples in Vanuatu, Fiji, Bali, New Zealand, Hayman Island, Daydream Island, Port Douglas, Melbourne, Sydney and Byron Bay. I've always wanted to see the world, and the fact that I've been able to do that while also making a living is more than I could have ever dreamed.


My current focus is on creating beautiful candid imagery of you and your loved ones through family photos, just being yourselves across some seriously stunning locations around the beautiful Sunshine Coast. Please bring your dog! Better yet - book a session just for you and your dog! Family is not limited to parents and kids, it's singles and their pets, couples, grandparents and their grandkids - whatever family means to you, I want to capture it!

Some things about me...

First and foremost, dogs are the BEST. I've spent the last 11 years loving two very special little lady dachshunds, Pepper + Bueno, and we sadly lost our sweet Bueno girl to cancer on Boxing Day 2021. We've recently had a little bundle of crazy join our life in the form of a red piebald sausage, Georgie Peach! My dogs are everything to me, I'm a bona fide crazy dog lady and I will always gel with people who are also *deeply* doggo obsessed!


Likes: Dessert, Pina Coladas, True Crime Podcasts, 90's music, laughing til my stomach hurts, patting any animal that will get close enough to me.

Dislikes: Coriander, dusty moths that are way too big and trying to watch any Netlfix series with my husband who is a one-episode-a-week kinda guy.


I'm married to a pretty cool guy with a Viking level beard who gardens for fun!


If you ever need someone to rap "Mr Boombastic", "Up In Here", or "Boom Shake the Room" in the car with, I'm your girl!

Don't take my word for it, check out what my couples have to say!

Emma photographed my partner and I for a couples shoot last year before same sex marriage became legal and we just had the best experience with her that when we started to plan our wedding the very first thought was

‘We have to find out when Emma is free!’
Our wedding was 2 days ago and we couldn’t have asked for the day to have been any better and to have Emma be our photographer just made the day that much more perfect.

We feel so privileged that she was able to be the one to capture every moment. We definitely know we will have THE most AMAZING photos.

We can not thank her enough, she is the easiest, friendliest person to work with and we feel very blessed that she was part of our big day.
