for the wild at heart
portrait sessions


Hey! I’m Shae, a Canberra, South Coast NSW and Southern Highlands/Bowral based photographer. I specialise in intimate, adventurous, candid and natural wedding and portrait photography. I love to work with all kinds of couples, but I’m especially excited by those who put creativity, intimacy, fun and adventure into their wedding plans.

Whether your planning a small elopement on a mountain or a relaxed wedding with friends and family, I consider it an immense honor to tell the story of your day.

I am available for weddings, elopements and portrait sessions all over Australia and I love at any chance to head back to the Sunshine Coast (my home town) to photograph couples!

I also accept a limited amount of destination weddings per year and am especially fond of traveling to New Zealand, Fiji, New Caledonia and Europe for weddings.

So take a look around and be sure to get in contact!

“We are so happy that we went with you to capture our day the photos are incredible and exactly what we wanted! It really felt that you were one of our guests on the day and we just loved that you didn’t make us stand and pose for the camera like you sometimes see with other photographers. You made us feel so relaxed and comfortable with everything and made it such an easy process. you have incredible crazy talent and anyone who picks you is so luck, the photos you take and time you put in is just amazing!”  Hannah + Scott
“My husband Kyle and I were referred to Shae by another photographer and we are so glad we found her. Our wedding photos are beautiful and the way she made us feel on the day was relaxed and like she was a good friend. Shae allowed us to get the most out of our wedding photography by giving us vital information on the best time to shoot, locations for an outdoor ceremony and finding unique portrait spots that reflected our personality and story as a couple perfectly. Looking through our wedding album today, my husband was speechless at reliving such beautiful memories captured. We would not hesitate to recommend Shae to anyone needing a wedding photographer. Thank you again Shae. ” Chantelle + Kyle
