MEET SHAE

Hi! I’m Shae! I’m a wedding and portrait photographer based between Canberra, the Southern Highlands and Sunshine Coast, QLD. My clients hire me to shoot their weddings all over Australia and abroad - so if you need me somewhere out of the way, I'm there.

I absolutely adore my fur child Gracie (an english staffy), and my husband Sam. Okay, maybe not in that order if his reading this! Our favorite hang outs are walking the fur child, road trips up to the Snowy Mountains or back home to Queensland to visit family.

Our personal love story is filled with gratitude, love and adventure and it is important I reflect that in my photography. No matter how many weddings I photograph, getting to experience two people commit the rest of their lives to each other is the most beautiful thing in the world to me.

I invest a lot of time to get to know my clients well and always am up for a coffee and chat. So please get in touch and I look forward to hearing all about you!

MY CLIENTS

Hey! So before we work together you have to tell me a story about yourself, and we have to take the Harry Potter quiz and land in the same house. Otherwise this is just not gonna work. Know that I’m goofy, chilled out and love what I do. For me to create amazing work I have to connect with you, I think that’s super important.

My ideal client is a couple who’s stupid, crazy in love. Who cares about photography almost as much as I do. Nature-loving free spirits. Someone who on their wedding day cares more about the emotion and experience than the glitz and the glamour of it. Who’s wild enough to hike to the top of a mountain with me because the scene is breath-taking. Who doesn’t mind taking their shoes off and getting a little dirty. Who doesn’t care when it starts to rain. Who’s willing to dedicate the time necessary to create strong work. Who lets me get creative and experimental. Who trusts me and my process and lets me do my thing. Who sees what I do as art, and is willing to do what it takes to make something KILLER together. And finally, who allows themselves to be themselves. Most of my portrait sessions end up feeling like we are all hanging out watching the sunset and enjoying we don’t have to be anywhere particular. This is what I love about my clients!

Philosophy

 

I serve to capture things a little differently;  the organic, intangible, fleeting moments of the day. My approach is to create honest, meaningful imagery around real people. I’m not about heavily posed photographs or long winded shot lists.

If your excited about getting a little dirt on your dress to get something epic, windswept hair, real moments, unique wedding photography that represents you and exploring new places then we will get along just fine.
