Behind The Lens
Hello and welcome! I’m Lisa and I’m a full time Alice Springs and Uluru wedding photographer, established in 2010. Choosing a photographer for your wedding or elopement is one of the most important decisions couples make when planning their wedding – thank you for considering me!
My goal as a photographer is to quickly get a feel for who you are as a couple so that I can help you feel completely at ease in front of the camera – yes even if you hate photos! Why is this important? Well, to me, being a wedding photographer is more than just taking pretty photos, it’s about really capturing who you are, your unique personalities and the feel of this one amazing day that will be your wedding.
Many of the couples I work with elope with just the two of them, so it’s even more important that I really capture how they felt in that moment as the photographs are what they’ll have to share with family and friends after the wedding is over.
Other than the witnesses and officiant, I’m often the only other person present and I don’t take that lightly at all – it’s a privilege to capture your memories. I absolutely love being able to do that!
I work in a way that is relaxed and fun – I’ll never leave you hanging not knowing what to do though! I’ll guide you every step of the way with natural posing that looks like you really were just acting spur of the moment! Relaxed, happy, loved-up photos are my aim. I’ll keep you moving, walking and laughing but will also give you time to just be together and enjoy the moment.
I love getting to know you both! I send all my couples a detailed questionnaire to complete, plus we’ll meet up in person a couple of times before your wedding or, if you’re marrying at Uluru or somewhere else in Aus, I’ll catch up with you in person on the day / day before, plus as many phone catch up’s as you like. This enables me to tailor your experience to who you are as a couple.
If you’re more ‘out there’ and happy to spin each other around, lay in the sand, climb over fences to get to the best light, I am up for all of that! But it’s not a must to get the best photos, the quiet moments and just walking hand in hand are perfect too.
At the end of the day your wedding is about you two – not me or anyone else, and I work in a way that is friendly and fun while always being polite and respectful of you and your guests. During your ceremony and reception if you’re having one I’ll aim to blend in to capture all the candid moments, during location photos I’ll take charge to help you know what to do.
Perhaps the best people to ask about what I’m really like to work with are some of my couples – read what some of my couples have to say here!
