“Life is not measured by the breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away” – Vicki Corona
Hi I’m Rachel, owner of Immortalising Moments Photography and Videography. I’m a multi award-winning photographer with a passion for immortalising your special moments and events.
I have been taking photographs for as long as I can remember. At school and university, you could always find me in the darkroom developing images I took on 35mm film. I won my first photography award in 1997, years before completing my Bachelor of Visual Arts in 2002.
I love discovering the beauty and magic in the ‘ordinary’ and turning these into ‘extraordinary’ features in my images. What sets me apart from other photographers is my flexibility and adaptability in all situations. No matter what happens at your special event, I can quickly adapt to any condition to capture incredible photographs. Rain, hail, or shine, your memories are in safe hands.
Art has the power to transport you to another time and place, and I strive to achieve this in my work. Each image I take is a work of art, and my photographs capture not just the image, but the memory of that moment. I want to ensure you can look back at your photographs in years to come and instantly be taken back to that moment. To help achieve this, I utilise my skills and equipment to tell the story, not photoshop. Using techniques like long exposure, off-camera flash, and drones help capture the real magic of your special day.
My team and I work hard to continue developing our skills and keep up to date with the latest technological advances. We specialise in weddings, newborn photography, events, sports, lifestyle, aerial drone, time-lapse photography, and videography. I also have skills and experience in night photography, allowing me to capture the moment anytime, anywhere. I am always checking sunrise and sunset times, full moon dates, and weather forecasts to work with nature and get the perfect shot. I’m happy to help couples write a run-sheet for their wedding to ensure the day runs smoothly, and to discuss the best times to get extra special images.
I live and work on the gorgeous Sunshine Coast QLD, but I regularly travel to photograph weddings and events around Australia and abroad. I’m always up for an adventure; I love travelling, getting outdoors, and taking my drone to explore new places!
I’d love to chat more about you and your plans, so let’s get a coffee (or wine!) and talk about how I can immortalise your special moments.
It’s your day, it’s your story, so let’s capture those special moments and create everlasting memories!
