Behind The Lens
Hi and welcome! I’m Lisa and I’m a full time Alice Springs based wedding & portrait photographer, established in 2009 – I also visit Uluru regularly for small weddings and elopements. Choosing a photographer for any occasion is an important decision – thank you for considering me!
My style of photography is vibrant, with true-to-life and timeless colours. I adore the Central Australian scenery (I live in a pretty special place!) and love to capture that scenery and sense of place in all my work.
My goal as a photographer is to quickly get a feel for who you are as a couple or family so that I can help you feel completely at ease in front of my lens (feeling comfortable means natural pictures!) For me photography is about really capturing who you are; your unique personalities and connection with each other. That only happens when you feel relaxed and are having fun in front of the camera.
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. All you need to do is bring along your smile and a willingness to have a bit of fun.
I love getting to know everyone I work with! I send all my families and couples a detailed questionnaire to complete, plus for weddings 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 adventurous 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 photography experience is about you – 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 wishes. When you book me as your photographer you’re not just booking someone to take pretty pictures, you’re booking someone who’s entire life is photography and helping people look and feel their best in photographs. I absolutely love what I do and I hope that shows in my work!
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!
