Chic. Romantic. Timeless.
Memories captured from the delicate moments you don’t see of your loved ones, the incredible moments you are in the thick of to the tender heartfelt moments you never want to forget.
Whether it be an elegant Mediterranean wedding, a glamorous French chateau wedding fete or an adventurous Icelandic Elopement, this is your dream destination wedding photographer.
Greetings! My love of destination wedding photography stems from a deep belief that life is an adventure and the world holds incredible awe that everyone needs to experience.
Surrounding yourself in a location that evokes the love of travel, culture and passion for incredible memories, drives me to be a reliable, artistic and experienced photographer to capture your wedding day.
Combining my love of editorial fashion and documentary style photography, my approach is unobtrusively documenting and sharing in the events as they happen, letting your day speak for itself to showcase the quiet and joyous moments alike.
I’m there for the intimate connections, the sincere emotions and all the beautifully intricate details.
I will help guide and direct you in a way that brings an feel without being overly staged, so in the end you are swept away by memories of a heightened caliber, where images divulge intricate details in a manner both effortless and magnetic.
I have been blessed to photograph weddings in over 10 countries including: Scotland, Iceland, Greece, New Zealand, Fiji, Thailand, Span and Italy.

“There are honestly not enough words to explain how amazing Shae is, not only as a person but a photographer as well. She has such a beautiful talent that we just couldn’t find in anyone else. Shae was beyond amazing to work with, she listened openly and honestly. Shae captured so many moments that we didn’t think would possible and the whole vibe of our big day. The communication throughout the whole process was beyond incredible and honestly made the whole process so easy. From day dot Shae was open and explained everything to these photography first timers! On the day Shae was much much more than a photographer capturing our day, Shae became part of the family. We had a small intimate elopement and couldn’t think of anyone better to experience it all with. Shae is the upmost professional but all in a way of being comfortable, warm and friendly. Shae is an absolute expert in what she does and finds the most magical shots. Trust her creative eye and honestly you won’t be disappointed! Her work is just beautiful- capturing the natural candid moments that you will cherish forever. I could keep going and going but honestly if your on the hunt for an amazing photographer stop here because you’ve found her!”
– Natasha & Jamie
“Shae takes the dreamiest photos and is also a total delight to be around.
We were lucky enough to get to hang with Shae during both our engagement shoot and our wedding day.
The engagement shoot was a great way to get to know Shae and also gave us perfect practice at looking relaxed and photogenic whilst being the centre of attention.
On our wedding day Shae fit in effortlessly wherever she needed. She was a calming presence during the getting ready photos, captured the excitement of the ceremony, helped us get into party mode during the portrait session, celebrated with us well into the evening and captured all of the emotions of the day. We loved having her there, as did our guests.
Our photos are incredible and Shae created the most beautiful wedding album for us. We loved sharing our wedding day with Shae and would happily do so again.”
– Nicole & Tom
“Where do I begin?! I saw Shae’s photography and knew I wanted her to capture such a wonderful milestone in my life.
Shae did our engagement shoot as well! She was so easy to get along with, my partner Daniel was skeptical about doing a photo shoot, however Shae made him feel so comfortable and by the end of the shoot he was smiling and and enjoying his conversations with Shae.
Shae is very professional and ensures she knows what is important to the couple she is photographing. She spent time getting to know us as a couple, and what we were about.
On the day of our wedding she was just amazing! She knew exactly what to capture and made everything look STUNNING!! The photos of our ceremony and reception were to die for it captured the ethereal vibe I was going for.
Shae is just so talented, kind and will make you feel at ease! Her work is unreal and I feel so lucky that she captured our special day!
I am forever receiving compliments about the photos from both our engagement shoot and wedding and people always ask me who the photographer was!!
100% would recommend Shae!”
– Natasha & Jason
“THANK YOU!! As we expected we had such a great day thanks to the team we had around us. Much like the engagement photo shoot we had a lot of fun on our wedding day capturing beautiful moments thanks to you. The bridal party had nothing but good things to say about you and I know you were there til late still on the dance floor capturing great photos. Thank you for helping make our day so special, we are so glad and grateful that you were our photographer and we absolutely love our photos. Couldn’t be happier!!”

“Shae did an absolutely amazing job on our wedding photography. She was delightful to work with throughout the entire process, being highly organised and professional but also so approachable and kind.

“We are lost for words to describe how truly amazing Shae is as a photographer.
The moment we came across Shae’s portfolio, we instantly fell in love with her natural and raw moments she was able to capture. We hoped for those exact moments during our engagement shoot and wedding day and WOW did she deliver.
From the first initial booking, her communication as been very clear, honest and helpful to put your mind at ease of what to expect.
We couldn’t be happier with our photos, they are truly stunning and have exceeded our expectations in every way.
Shae is incredible at making you feel at ease while directing and assisting you throughout the day to ensure you have plenty of opportunity to capture beautiful photos.
The day after the wedding she sent through a few sneaky pictures to share that were absolutely mind blowing.
Shae has a wonderful talent, plus she is TRULY a beautiful kind person inside and out. Thanks you so much Shae for capturing these moment that we will forever cherish.”

We cannot recommend Shae more – a complete professional, but also the most lovely presence to have on your wedding day!”

Shae is one amazing photographer. She has helped secure the memories from our big day creatively and beautifully.
Thank you xx”

Shae is truely amazing! We are beyond happy with our photos and how beautiful they are. In years to come we’ll look back at them and will be such a wonderful reminder of our day.
Shae was so wonderful with our 7 nieces and nephews, who were our flower girls and page boys. It was such a pleasure to have Shae spend the day with us and our family and friends.
– Amanda & Preston
“I truly can’t explain how amazing Shae is, both as a photographer and as a person. Shae is a truly talented photographer and she created some utterly beautiful memories for us, capturing everything that we wanted and more. Shae was so lovely to work with and made us feel so comfortable both during our engagement photos and on the big day. I am so incredibly happy with how our photos turned out, we have such wonderful photos that we will treasure forever. Thank you so much Shae for all of your work, we will be forever grateful.”
-Sarah & Benjamin
“Booking a wedding photographer has to be one of the most anxiety-inducing decisions made by a bride or groom-to-be. For me, it felt like I was placing all of my trust in a total stranger and I really didn’t want to stuff it up because you only get one chance at it. I wanted someone who wasn’t just going to photograph the important parts of the ceremony or the group family photos, I wanted someone who was going to capture the atmosphere of the day. I wanted photos that capture movement and tell a story of a moment-in-time that will never happen again.
I was so amazingly happy when I first got our photos back from Shae and I still am today. They take me back to the exact moment they were taken. I recommend Shae Estelle without hesitation. She’s an absolute delight to be around, she’s professional, she’s heaps of fun, she worked in seamlessly with our videographer, and her photos are the best. Book Shae, I promise you won’t regret it.”
– Amanda & Grant
“Words truely cannot describe how amazing Shae is. She is incredible at what she does. Every important moment of our day was captured without prompting. We have so many beautiful, raw, candid, bursting with love photos. The whole vibe of our day is seen in each and every photo. She has a fine eye for detail, every part of the day big and small we now have to cherish forever. Plus she is an absolutely dream to have by your side, she is warm, cool headed, quirky (in the best way), professional and FUN. She turned us from goofy awkward (think Chandler from Friends, in the engagement photoshoot with Monica level of awkward) into such a photogenic pair, all by bringing out our personalities and making us feel comfortable. We will be forever grateful for you Shae, thank you!”
– Renee & Michael
“Shae was the most amazing photographer on our wedding day, we are so grateful for her organisation, patience, professionalism and kindness with us prior to our day and on our wedding day. Shae also worked so well with our videographer. She made it so easy, made us feel so relaxed and most of all captured the most perfect photographs which we will treasure forever. Thank you Shae! Xo”
– Tina & Bojan
“Shae was amazing on our day. Not only did she make us feel comfortable she let us be ourselves and didn’t make us feel awkward and staged. We had so much fun with you and we would highly recommend you to anyone who needs a photographer who is efficient. Time really went by so fast because you made our shoot fun. X”
