Sunshine Coast based wedding, elopement and engagement photographer

While my main focus are weddings & elopements, I am always up for lifestyle, family and creative shoots when my schedule allows it.

Couples of mine value creativity, timeless + real moments and have absolute trust in me as their photographer for the most important day of their lives. Capturing it in a way that tells a story all while being you friend and getting to know you as a couple rather then just a client. Your time, your investment  and your trust is so valued + appreciated and I am so incredibly happy to be on your photographer radar.

Let's get to know one another better "click here" to say "hello"!
And I 
can't wait to hear your story!

Tash and Mat

Tash and Mat were celebrating their special day and love at the beautiful Sunshine Coast with a wonderful sunny beach wedding. Everyone came from far away, was it from overseas, where the bride is originally from or just "around the corner" from NSW. Everyone loves to come up to the magnificent Sunshine Coast to get married. And it definitely was a stunning wedding! The weather was just perfect and the bride looks absolutely stunning in her wonderful wedding dress fro the UK! She actually went for a holiday back home to the UK and was going shopping with her mom and found her dream dress! Just a wonderful and lovely couple and I wish them both everlasting love and happiness!! And I am a big

Alex and Ali

What can I say, I am just so in LOVE with their photos!! I had such a wonderful time with Ali and Alex during our engagement session and look at the wonderful and magnificent sunset, just breathtaking and so much love, happiness and emotions between these two beautoful lovebirds! I definitely found my new favourite location and I can't wait meeting them again in October when it comes to the big; YES I DO!! Ali will be an absolutely stunning bride and Alex a very handsome groom, that's for sure! Lot's of love Nicole xx

Family shoot in Buderim

Not quite often that the whole family can come to together, that's why Marina and Rob used the great opportunity to user the Anniversary Day for a big family shoot at the place where their got married, at Buderim Waterfall Park. And everyone had so much fun, kids playing around and snuggling with grandma and grandpa, parents could use a few moments with just the two of them and having a nice little sip of a refreshing cold drink. Such a lovely family and I am so happy that I had the chance to meet them on their special day! Congratulation on your anniversary Marina and Rob, may your life continue to be filled with love, laughter and happiness!!

Michaela and Beau

A few weeks ago Michaela contacted me that she wanted to do a surprise engagement shoot on Beau's birthday, I loved the idea straight away but as it turned out it was the same day as my partners birthday. So I had of course to double check with him if he wouldn't mind if I would do an engagement shoot on his birthday, and he didn't mind at all. So Michaela and I organised a location and time for the shoot and it was just magnificent! Funny was when I met them at Coolum they told me, that Beau actually wasn't really keen at all to go to the beach for a walk, as every birthday kid what do you do at most, you eat and eat and eat and drink. So already full from the day, he pretty much preferred

A maternity shoot in the Pine Forest

It was so lovely meeting Tara and her cute little family the other day, there is so much love, emotions and happiness between them that it made the maternity session so special for me! We also were so lucky with the amazing weather and golden light between the trees, as lately all my posts including this one, the weather didn't looked very promising but when we arrived at the pine forest we were so blessed which such a magical golden light! And dosen't she looks just stunning and her pink maternity dress, just love the contrast so much!

Naomi and Justin

I had so much fun with these two lovebirds. It wasn't the perfect weather the day before and I thought that Naomi and Justin maybe a are little bit scared about the rain, but when I contacted them the day before, when the rain just didn't wanted to stop, that they don't have to be worried, that they can relaxe that rain photos are awesome, they told me that they are actually hoping that it will rain and see what is happen, NO RAIN. Damn, ok a short moment a few little drops came down from the cloudy sky and I straight away pointed my camera on them and I just called and KISS, and we had at least one or two beautiful rain photo, Woohoo! It was a such wonderful time and we had so much fun toge

A very special proposal

I am so excited to share these amazing proposal shoot with you and that I could be a part of this wonderful, creative and well planed surprise proposal shoot! A few weeks ago Michael contacted me that he wanted to propose to his girl friend on the beach after a horse ride with Equathon Horse Riding , we exchanged lots of emails and came up with a perfect plan how to do it without me hiding in the sand dunes, because the horses can sense that someone is hiding in there, and they can get spooky, but we also wanted that Victoria has no idea what will happen. So I tried my best without hiding, walking down the beach, acting I am a landscape/ wildlife photographer and that I could capture some am

Baby belly love

It is such a wonderful and amazing time in your life, a journey that make you feel happy, exited and full of love. I love sharing special moments like this with my clients and to build a deep relationship with me! I can't wait to seeing them again, when they next chapter in their life will begin. And just after the shoot when I was sending Gabby some of her beautiful photos I got this wonderful reply ---> Hey beautiful, oh god, I love your work, they are so beautiful, I just wanna cry! These are the moments I feel blessed and honoured and this is what I want for my clients, to make them feel special and happy and to create memories that will last a lifetime and are captured forever! Every si

We recently had the pleasure of engaging Nicole to do our Engagement and Wedding photography. We received quotes from over 25 photographers on the Sunshine Coast and Nicole’s personality and portfolio made our decision easy. From the very first meeting she was easy to deal with and you could tell straight away that she is a perfectionist. In both sessions she went above and beyond and exceeded our expectations. We even gave her the added challenge of including our dog in both the engagement session and the wedding which did not phase her one bit! Nicole has a ninja like ability to capture every moment of your wedding day without being noticed. Having said that when you work with her in a more intimate setting (eg your couples portraits) it’s like dealing with an old friend. It was such a wonderful experience working with Nicole and the quality of her photos is second to none. We’d recommend her to all our family and friends!
