Hey! I’m Shae and if you’ve found your way to my page it likely means you are engaged and planning your wedding, so congratulations and how exciting. I am a full-time wedding photographer based in the beautiful bush capital AKA Canberra. I am not a true Canberran, I’m a Sunshine Coast girl through and through so any opportunity I have to shoot in my home town I take with both hands, it’s also an excuse for me visit my numero uno, my mum.

My husband and I locked eyes on a scuba diving trip and I knew from that moment on I had found the one and only fish in the sea for me (ba da ching!). I am in awe of my multi-talent husband who as a side hobby handcrafts the most beautiful fine furniture; he is a true creative inspiration. On par with the love I have for my husband is my fur-baby, Gracie – a blue english staffy who I shower with snuggles and morning walks to our local coffee shop.

I love being outdoors and exploring, so being a wedding photographer and traipsing through paddocks, jumping fences, scurrying across sand and scaling cliff faces for that perfect shot is what I live for, seriously if you want to get married on the top of Mt Everest I’m your girl.

Every engagement and wedding is so personal to each couple, it is so important that your wedding photos reflect your personal love story. My personal love story is one filled with adventure, gratitude and good times, so it was important that our wedding reflected that. I want to ensure that the photos I capture on your wedding day are the essence of your couple style and highlight your own personal love story.

I’m a firm believer that any day or date, location, rain, hail or shine is a great day for a wedding, so although I’m based in Canberra I am available to shoot across Australia and overseas. I am comfortable and experienced in shooting weddings in a range of locations from the sea, to the mountains, from farmland to the middle of forests, whenever, wherever I’ll be there.

So that’s just a little bit about me, to find more and see if I am a good match for you and your wedding please don’t hesitate to get in touch!



I serve to capture things a little differently; from the organic, intangible, fleeting moments of the day to images that have that hint of editorial and luxe. I’m not about heavily posed photographs or long winded shot lists. Best suited for the non-traditional and creative couples who share an appreciate for quiet moments, interesting surroundings, beautiful landscapes and adventure.

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.
