My name is Alison and I am so glad you’re here! I am a Brisbane wedding photographer, newborn photographer, family and portrait photographer. I’d love to know more about you so I can capture your most important moments exactly the way you've always dreamed of!
I have 22 years experience as a Brisbane wedding photographer and am an award-winning member of the AIPP .
And while I specialise in weddings, many couples return to me for family, portrait and newborn photography. So I guess I'm a photographer of life! I would love to get to know you better, capture your favourite moments and give you the best photographic experience possible!
When it comes to your wedding day, the wedding photographer is one of the most important vendors on your wedding day. Choosing the wrong wedding photographer can be disastrous. Over the past 22 years I’ve photographed over 700 weddings throughout Brisbane, the Sunshine Coast, Gold Coast, Maleny, Toowoomba and even the Whitsundays! And every single wedding is just as important and just as special to me as the last one. When you book me you're getting an award-winning Brisbane photographer, an accredited member of the Australian Institute of Professional Photography (AIPP ) and a wealth of wedding experience. I’ll share wedding tips, help plan your timeline and provide you with my favourite vendors. And on the day I’ll help calm your nerves, make you laugh, pin buttonholes, wrangle guests and make your wedding day as fun and as smooth as possible. You’ll also get some awesome wedding photography, have lots of fun and a photographer who, by the end of the day, feels like a long lost friend.
It sounds cliche', but connection with your Brisbane wedding photographer is SUPER important. After all, I'll be there while you're getting ready and often, I'll be helping you get ready! I'll help get you into your dress, fix those buttonholes and act as an extra pair of hands. And I'll go into stealth mode when necessary and stalk you, your husband or wife and guests, for the entire day. But, in a friendly, non-creepy stalker way! Because of this, it's important you find a Brisbane wedding photographer who makes you comfortable, makes you laugh and feels like an old friend. And of course you need a Brisbane wedding photographer who not only takes fabulous photos, but is easy-going and loads of fun to be around. And basically, this is me! But don't take my word for it, check out my many Google Reviews and read my happy clients' reviews. I was also recently voted one of ‘Brisbane’s Top 10 Wedding Photographers’ by The Courier Mail and made the list of 'Most Popular Wedding Photographers in Brisbane' by the Wedding Diaries.
Basically, weddings are my jam. I love weddings and after 22 years as a Brisbane wedding photographer, I'm still excited when a couple book me for their special day. I take my job seriously and every wedding I photograph is just as special as the last. Not matter how small or how big your wedding is, I'll do my utmost on your wedding day to exceed your expectations. I'll make you laugh, make you relax and capture some gorgeous wedding photographs in the process. And because I've been a Brisbane wedding photographer for so long, I have a wealth of experience and useful wedding day tips to share with you.

And because all weddings are different, I offer a range of wedding photography packages to suit weddings and budgets of all sizes.

I was 17 years old when I fell in love with photography. It all began when I landed job in a photography lab. I LOVED the smell of the chemicals and how I magically brought photos to life from a small 35mm piece of film. It fascinated me! It wasn't long before I was obsessed with photography. I bought a second-hand Pentax K1000 for the huge sum of $150 and started harassing my friends to model for me. Yep, I was hooked.
In my 20's I worked in various photographic labs, my favourite was a professional photographic lab in Brisbane. My days were spent scrutinising other professional photographers work and dreaming of one day, being a kick-ass wedding photographer. I was 23 years old when I decided it was time to turn my obsession with photography into a career. And so here I am, 24 years later, still as passionate about photography as ever. Actually, I'm probably more passionate now as my photography has evolved into storytelling. In fact, I love storytelling so much, I went to uni and gained a Communications Degree, majoring in journalism and public relations. It was hard work juggling life, work and family but it's an achievement I'm proud of! Because words are the perfect accompaniment to photography and I love telling stories! Your story is important to me, so let me document it for you.
Other fun facts! I LOVE dogs, my family, dogs, red wine and dogs.
Famous Quote: "If you haven't experienced the love of a dog, have you ever really been loved at all?"
Superpowers: I immortalise people. Can make wine disappear. And I made 2 pretty awesome humans.
Famous last words: "I'll just have one more glass"
Once upon a time I fell in love with photography. It all began when I was 17 years old and landed a job in a photography lab. There was something about the smell of the chemicals and bringing photos to life from a small 35mm piece of film that fascinated me. It wasn’t long before I discovered photography. My pride and joy was a second-hand Pentax K1000 I bought for the princely sum of $150. And so my love affair with photography began.
In my early 20’s I worked in various photography labs, my favourite being a professional Brisbane photography lab where I would spend my days scrutinising other professional photographers work. I was 23 years old when I decided to turn my love of photography into a career. And here I am, 24 years later, still as passionate about photography as I was when my journey began. In fact, I love storytelling so much, I studied for my Communications Degree with majors in journalism and public relations. Because words are the perfect accompaniment to photography and your story is important to me. Let me document it for you.
"You have captured every beautiful moment perfectly and so well that we don't even need to watch a video of the day. It all just comes rushing back to us looking at our photos. There are so many amazing ones that we just LOVE that we cannot decide which ones to print large. They are all just so beautiful. We could not be happier. Thank you thank you thank you! You have given us the most beautiful pictures that we will treasure for the rest of our lives".

"Alison is simply amazing! Her unique approach to weddings captured some of the most beautiful, stunning photos, as well as some really awesome candid shots. She was clear and direct with instructions but was also very easy going and happy to have a laugh or just go with the flow of the moment. The photos were returned in a reasonable time and we couldn't be happier with the quality. We also had our newborn photo shoot with Alison and she aced that too! It is safe to say that Alison will be our family photographer for all the special moments."
