Hey there.

My name is Elise and I’m an Australian portrait and wedding photographer.

The above video was made by my beautiful friends over at Maple & Mist.

I like to let my photos speak for themselves, but my brides and grooms also write some really lovely things, so I’ve included my wedding portfolio with a few testimonials below.

If you like what you see, get in touch!

“We love, love, loved our photos. I’ve enjoyed Elise’s photos for years so when it came time for our wedding I was willing to shuffle my wedding dates to match Elise’s plans. Elise’s warm and relaxed personality put us at ease and helped us enjoy the entire day.

“Our photos were stunning and they captured the atmosphere of the reception with perfection. She is such a pleasure to work with, very quick thinking with an eye for detail. Nothing was too much for her. Thank you again Elise, we love you very much!”
