I’m Erin, and I love cats, travelling, chocolate and dancing. I specialise in helping multicultural couples hold on to the happiest days of their lives, to celebrate their love and their cultural fusion with images that tell their story.
Why multicultural weddings?
I understand what it’s like to fuse two cultures in your relationship – I’m your typical Aussie, descended from Irish convicts, and my man 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 other cultures I came across and the different ways they bring families and hearts together, and I fell in love with those couples’ stories.
I think I’m particularly blessed to live in such a multicultural country – Chris and I now live in Brisbane with our little cat, and Ilove walking through my city and hearing so many different languages around me.
My little business is just me, my cameras and my computer, so every email, every meeting and every image is personally sent, attended, captured and edited by yours truly. This personal communication is what allows me to better understand you and your partner or family, what makes your love special, and what you want and need from your photographs. I don’t want to just show up and shoot – I want you to trust me, to share your ideas with me, and to be completely overjoyed with the end result. I spend hours researching traditions just for fun, and I love to attend wedding rehearsals to make sure I’m as prepared as possible.
I’ve been living my passion since 2011, capturing weddings and couples and families of various backgrounds and being inspired by the love and the heart in each of them. My goal is to capture every moment – big, small, quiet, joyous, teary and proud. I love seeing two cultures and two families come together in love, and I love capturing weddings and portraits that truly represent who you are and how you love – weddings and portraits that go beyond pretty faces in pretty clothes in a pretty setting. My clients have stories to be told – even though they often don’t see the wonder in their own story.
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.

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.
