My name is Carissa! I'm originally a NSW gal but have called QLD my home since I was 15 (for all those footy lovers, I am a closet Queenslander shhhhh... but that does not stop me from 'geeing' up my boys)! I am also a wife and a mumma to 3 boys of 22, 20 and 16 who make me feel blessed everyday.

I am Artistic by nature and have a passion for finding & creating beauty in all things I do. I’m a lover of the outdoors, cosy foggy days cuddling up to watch a movie .. yep I'm a hopeless romantic. 

I am 100% self taught and google is my best friend. I am a perfectionist who obsesses over detail and light. I crave organisation but have learned to go with the flow because nothing goes to plan, especially during a shoot. I like my couples to enjoy their day of celebration and to not fixate on taking photos. I love to shoot candid and natural photos with simple guided positioning. The first thing I ask of the couple / bridal party is "to not look at me directly until I ask you to,”and "to not move out of my way, I will move around you!”

I am dedicated to creating gorgeous, heartfelt images and pieces of art... mementos that reflect who you are, your inner beauty, love and the true essence of you.
