Hi there! I’m Erin, and I love cats, travelling, tea and dancing. I’ve always loved recording my life in pictures, so it was a very natural move for me to transition to recording special moments for other people too!
My style is just like me – relaxed, comfortable, and real. I don’t pose the people in my pictures – instead, I help them spend time together naturally, focus on each other and make candid moments happen by themselves. To me, a picture of a couple laughing uproariously or a family playing together is worth much more than a staged photograph with perfect poses and perfect smiles. I love to capture every moment and every detail – big, small, quiet, joyous, teary and proud.
I’m the kind of person who is always prepared – I truly believe that being prepared and organised leaves you room to be spontaneous and fully enjoy each moment! While I’ve yet to actually plan a wedding myself, I have been to a lot of them now, so I love to use my experience to help my clients out with their wedding planning process or to get the best out of their portrait session.
My vision is to spread global compassion, acceptance and equality, and it’s my mission to do that by documenting and sharing real love stories in a way that is beautiful and honest – that’s why I love capturing cross-cultural weddings! On a more personal level, I understand what it’s like to blend two cultures in your relationship – I’m a typical Aussie girl, descended from Irish convicts, and my partner Chris is first-generation Australian-Chinese. We’ve been together since 2006, and in that time he and his family have taught me so much about their culture and traditions – from food to festivals and even a little feng shui. Once I started capturing weddings in 2011, I found myself fascinated with the traditions of the other cultures I came across and the different ways they bring families and hearts together.
Chris and I live right in the heart of Brisbane with our little black and white cat, and I run my little business from my home office with just me, my cameras and my computer. Every email, every meeting and every image is personally handled by me, and I believe it’s this direct communication and connection that allows me to better understand you, what makes your love special, and what you want and need from your photographs. I don’t want to just show up and shoot on the day – I want to meet you for coffee to talk about what you need, I want to be a sounding board for your ideas, and I want you to be completely overjoyed with your photographs.
The weddings and portraits I capture go beyond pretty people in pretty clothes in a pretty setting. You have important stories to be told, and I’d be honoured to help you tell them.
I really can’t explain how nice it is to have someone I trust there on my wedding day to photograph all my dreams and make me feel like a million dollars… We feel like you were just part of the family.Amelia & Dylan
We are so happy with our wedding photos, we can’t thank you enough Erin! Neither of us are particularly photogenic, so photos were something we were very nervous about leading up to our wedding, but you made us feel so comfortable and at ease. We especially love the candid shots you took – they captured our day perfectly.Samone & Jarryd
