Hi and welcome! My name is Lisa and I’m a wedding and elopement photographer based in Alice Springs and Uluru. I absolutely love photographing down to earth couples who want their wedding day or elopement to be full of joy and laughter!
I’m the only Uluru wedding photographer recommended by Ayers Rock Resort and hold a permit for photography inside Uluru Kata Tjuta National Park. I’m a born & raised local with a love for our beautiful natural scenery and colours. With my local knowledge and 10+ years photographing weddings and elopements, I can help you plan your entire day to be as stress-free and amazing as possible! Read more about me here

"Lisa was a fantastic wedding photographer- I could not recommend her highly enough! She worked so hard the entire wedding and in the lead up as well. She was easy to work with, listened to what we wanted and captured some truly amazing moments."
"Lisa, you have been amazing! We have loved every moment of working with you. Everything you have done for us has been professional and wonderful. The photos you captured are spectacular!"
"Lisa is an incredible photographer and the most wonderful person, we had our wedding at Uluru and she captured exactly what we wanted and how we felt on the day. Our pictures so amazing they were picked for a Tourism NT campaign!"
"Not only did we end up with some of the most amazing photos ever but when my husband (who hates the camera) says he really enjoyed and had fun taking our photos you know you’ve struck gold. Lisa makes everything so comfortable and fun."
"Lisa made the whole wedding photography experience amazing. On the day she was super efficient and made everything so much fun. And all of the photos – wow!"
"Lisa was always easy to work with, personal, very prompt, and at the wedding was able to maintain such down to earth personality whilst directing nearly 100 guests. Lisa’s photos of our wedding are timeless, and will be forever treasured.”
"The photo’s are amazing and the album will certainly be something to treasure, it was such an amazing day and Lisa's photos captured the setting, atmosphere and our happiness so well."
"Lisa made us feel very special and we were able to relax and enjoy every single minute. Her knowledge of the local landscape and light conditions made for some magical photos."
"Although we had only just met Lisa, it felt like we had known her for years. That comfort shone through in our photos"
We arranged our wedding from the UK and nothing was too much trouble, Lisa made our day so special and magical I will have fabulous memories forever. We love our pictures!
You’ve looked through my work, about section and reviews and you’d like to book – awesome! The first step is to fill in my contact form and check your date is available. I’ll then send you over a custom proposal to review available packages and set up a time for a phone chat. It’s really important that you ‘click’ with your wedding photographer (pun intended) as we’ll be spending a lot of time together on the day!
This initial chat will ensure we are a good fit and answer any questions you may have. Next, if you’d like to go ahead and make it official, all you need to do is review and sign the booking terms and pay your 30% retainer to lock in the date!
Now you’re officially a #Lisa Hatz Couple, it’s time to get started!
Once you’re officially booked in, we’ll start making sure we’re completely prepared and have all the timings set for your wedding or elopement. By now I know the sort of day you’d like to have and from this info I put together a suggested timeline for you.
I love creating custom timelines for my couples to ensure you don’t miss out on having your dream wedding photos! Especially at destinations like Uluru, it’s super important we plan out the best time for photos.
After 10 years photographing weddings, I know how to create the perfect timeline for a less rushed, stress free wedding day!
6 weeks out from the big day, I’ll send you a questionnaire I’ve put together to gather all the details I need. I love being organised and especially when it comes to a day as important as your wedding, it pays for me to know exactly what is happening and when so I can help you stay on track!
The questionnaire will also cover your groupings for family portraits (which are SO important), runsheet for your reception and I’ll ask you to tell me about any surprises you may have planned – you don’t want your guests to know, but your photographer needs to be clued in to make sure I know it’s happening and can capture it.
Once your questionnaire is complete it’s all downhill from here to the big day!
It’s here! Time to celebrate, relax and for me to get to work! This day is going to be a blur so I make it a priority to capture every moment! I shoot with two cameras at all times (one with a wide lens, the other with a long lens for candids and close ups) and on dual memory cards in both cameras – plus I carry a full kit of back up gear, tonnes of spare memory cards and batteries just in case.
For most of the day you’ll hardly notice I’m there as I capture everything unfolding as unobtrusively as possible. During the location photos I’ll step in and guide you every step of the way. You’ll never be left standing still wondering what to do – I’ll direct you through natural, fun posing that looks like you’re not even posing at all – no one wants to look like a mannequin! My aim is to help you look in your photos as happy and relaxed as you felt on the day.
As soon as I get home from your wedding, I upload and back up all my memory cards so your memories are safe. Then, I get stuck straight into the sorting and editing process!
No waiting months to see even one photo – all my couples receive a highlights preview within 48 hours, usually the very next day! This is a moment all my couples look forward to as you get to relive those moments and share them with all your family and friends.
The highlights preview will be a selection of my early favourites from the day. If you’re eloping and not quite ready to share your photos yet – no worries! Just let me know and I’ll email your preview to you instead and share online once you’ve announced your marriage.
Within 6 weeks (usually sooner) your gallery of all your wedding photos goes online – hundreds and hundreds of them! I keep all the photos that are not duplicates or badly exposed, unflattering, blinking etc – so there’s not limit on what you receive! Generally you can expect around 85+ images per hour of coverage. These images are displayed beautifully in your online gallery which you can also share with family and friends and download your images straight to your computer.
I’ll also send you a hard copy USB in the post for safe keeping.If you’ve ordered an album, your first design will be on it’s way to your inbox soon after your gallery is delivered.
