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 15 years. Since 2007 I have traveled around this beautiful country and overseas as a destination wedding photographer, capturing weddings and elopements in Vanuatu, Fiji, Bali, New Zealand, Hayman Island, Daydream Island, Port Douglas, Melbourne, Sydney and Byron Bay. I now only take a limited amount of weddings each year and have a love for smaller weddings and elopements - please see my weddings page for more info and loads of beautiful wedding galleries!


Currently my favourite thing to do is get out at sunset and create beautiful candid imagery of you and your loved ones through family sessions. Images that show you 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 photos aren't just for parents and kids. Singles, couples, their pets, grandparents and their grandkids - whatever family means to you it deserves to be celebrated and remembered through photos!

Some things about me...

I'm that Millennial who will unashamedly call herself a 'dog mum' and I will always gel the most with people who are also *deeply* dog obsessed (dachshunds are my #1 loves)


I equally love bright fun colours /patterns (pink + orange forever) and dark moody vibes (deep green velvet + brown leather).


I'm also equally happy to be out socializing with my friends over dinner OR in my trackies on the couch watching scary movies or the Office for the 200th time


I always want to see the dessert menu


Either true crime podcasts or 90's/2000's music are in my ears most of the time


Margaritas and Pina Coladas always


My favourite feeling is laughing until my stomach hurts and I can't breathe


My toxic trait is thinking that all animals will instinctively feel my loving vibes and want to be my friend, so I will try to pat any cute animal that will get close enough to me. I really hope I never meet a wild bear


Coriander is the devil
