“Our photos arrived yesterday. I was a tad excited to say the least haha! I just wanted to let you know how happy I am with every single photo! There are 1000 shots and I absolutely love them all. You have captured every beautiful moment perfectly and so well that I don’t even need to watch a video of the day it all just comes right back to me looking at these photos. There are so many amazing ones that I just LOVE that I cannot decide which ones I want to print large. I’ve already had them all printed normal size, every single one haha! 1000 photos to put away but they are all just so beautiful. I could not be happier. I shared as many as I could on my Facebook page and the ones that you took of guests together have already changed the photo to their profile pictures. Thank you thank you thank you!!! You have given me the most beautiful pictures that I will treasure for the rest of my life”.

Words can’t express how blessed and thankful we are to you, thanks so much for capturing our special day, you and your work reminded us the wedding was real and beautiful living dream! Something we can relive those magical moments for the rest of our life. We had the best time last week, you probably could feel we really enjoyed every moment as you photographed us.
Thanks again for everything – Jemy & Hiro 12/10/16”
Hi Alison! We are back from our honeymoon and back to reality!!
I did just post on your Facebook page, and I know we did already text you. But YOU WERE AMAZING!!
All the things I mentioned and more, you worked so hard and all afternoon and night!! You didn’t stop, you knew what you were doing (never doubted you, but wow you hear some horror stories). And like I said, if we even have the opportunity to use you again, you will be the only one we call!!
Liz & Kurt married at Eves on the River 27/08/16
“Alison, from James and myself we have had time to settle from our Wedding/Ceremony and we wanted to express how grateful we are for everything you have done for us. You are such a down to earth lady and made us feel so comfortable. We didn’t feel like a number, you cared about us and you weren’t judgemental. We talked about what we wanted and you were professional and gave us options from what we had initially discussed over the phone. We met a couple of times before the ceremony to help us plan and to enable you to get to know us as a couple which would help you capture “us” through the lens of the camera. We really explained on the first meeting how important it was for you to capture not only us but our Mums on the day. For James and myself finding the right photographer was a major part of the day. Someone who truly understands that documenting a same love wedding involves more than turning up on the day with camera gear – it’s about discovering the nature of the two people and their relationship and, in turn, finding a way to capture their love, unity and memorable moments that are a reflection of them. The key is finding out what truly makes two people a partnership – it’s the same key ingredient no matter the couple – gay or straight. She guided us through the whole process helping us every step of the way making it fun and as stress free as possible. She really cared. She also contacted the videographers for us and worked with them to ensure they captured the best for us. We are beyond happy getting to know Alison, she is a genuine caring professional and so far the few photos we have seen as a sneak preview are just impeccable. We are so excited to see our photos and her work. She is someone both James and I would highly recommend to our own Community LGBTI and other communities for their event and function. Don’t hesitate in booking Alison as your photographer, you will not be disappointed Thank you Alison, we are excited and can’t wait to see the images of the day you have taken and can’t wait to order the cherished memories of our day xx”

Alison is a really lovely person and very easy going. She has taken our wedding photos, family photos and our newborn baby photos to. I will definitely go back for more pictures. I love every picture she has taken and everyone that see’s our pictures always comment on how beautiful they are. Great prices and packages too

Alison’s work was fantastic and all of the photos she took on our wedding day were absolutely stunning! She didn’t miss a thing and had some really clever ideas. Hiring her was one of the best decisions we made in regards to our special day! Very reasonably priced too, and she provided above-and-beyond service for us 🙂

Lisa & Giles married, Brisbane 23rd of May 2015
My Mum had only one piece of advice for my wedding -make sure you have good photos – hire a professional wedding photographer. Enter Alison – I knew Alison from my school days but it had been a very long time (20+ years!) between drinks.
My husband had one brief – “no poses”. He was quite nervous about the idea of having a wedding photographer (who would insist on ‘silly poses’ instead of just letting us enjoy the day). I don’t think I was much better. Nothing phased Alison though. We met before the wedding to discuss ‘who’s who’ and the ‘where’; and our wishes, and concerns, for the day.
Alison managed to capture all the special moments and our guests; despite the windy conditions, some slightly obnoxious guests (there’s always got to be at least one, right?), and even more obnoxious dog 🙂 As I said, nothing phased her. We felt perfectly relaxed and Alison captured many beautiful moments. Even our guests commented on how “easy to get along with” our photographer was, and they were all just as impressed with the final products, as we have been.
I am glad my mum told me to hire a professional photographer. I am so pleased we hired Alison Cooke – an extremely talented photographer, and friendly, down-to-earth person. (and extremely fantastic package prices!!)
Eve & Jeremy 26th of October 2014
Thanks again for your amazing work on the 27th of September. Ian and I are back from the honeymoon and back to reality 🙁 We wanted to say thank you for your amazing work on the day. We had fun and felt we captured all the photos we wanted. You dealt with Ian’s dislike for staged photos well as well as Rosie’s tears. Thank you so much for all your hard work.

I first met Alison when she photographed my friends wedding and I was a bridesmaid. Seeing her amazing work I knew I had to have her for my wedding. She did not disappoint! Alison captured the uniqueness of each of our weddings and brought out the beauty in each of our days. The photos are a joy to look back on and I highly recommend Alison to everyone, but at the end of the day the photographs speak for themselves. Thanks for our wonderful memories, Alison!

Alison has now covered our wedding and our first baby’s photo shoot and we are in love with the photos! She makes you feel comfortable and able to share a laugh with you on the day whilst getting those perfect shots. The newborn shots were amazing and Alison was great with our little boy and captured all the right poses. I would highly recommend Alison for both weddings and newborn shoots.
