Beloved | Hervey Bay Couples Photographer


Imagine  if you could freeze time. A special time that was spent with your love ones. Sharing special moments. Focusing on each other and the love you share. Connecting to one another. Celebrating the wonderful love you feel for each other.

Imagine years to come, walking through the door after a long hard day at work and seeing on your wall your beautiful images and being transported back to that moment and remembering the joy, the fun and feeling the love that surrounds you.

Introducing to you beloved…..

Last week I have the pleasure of attending an amazing intensive workshop focusing on being more than just a photographer but capturing moments in time, the special bonds we share with those we love. Jesh De Rox took us on an amazing adventure, exploring ourselves, challenging us and our views on how we see and experience the world and our relationships. I learnt so much not just about how to create space to capture amazing pictures but also about myself.

At the end of the day, we had the chance of putting into practice what we had learnt, under Jesh’s gentle guidance. The images above I had the joy of capturing during the session. I so can’t wait to incorporate everything I have learnt into all my sessions, both couples and family, freezing time for you and creating images that transport you back to that moment….

Interested in booking your own beloved session, call Mary. Lets get to know each other, have some fun and create some beautiful art for you to enjoy forever.


Holly + Adam | Wedding Photographer Brisbane

Holly and Adam where married on a glorious winters day down at Southport Yacht Club on the Gold Coast, surrounded by their wonderful family and friends. I was so privileged to be their chosen Wedding Photographer and I had so much fun documenting their wedding day for them.

Wedding of Brad + Sisifa | Brisbane

On the first day of winter, I was so lucky to be invited to photograph the gorgeous wedding of Brad and Sisifa.

Brad and Sisifa were surrounded by close Family and Friends at the Uniting Church at Cleveland as they became husband and wife, and then they celebrated their wedding at the gorgeous Light House Restaurant Cleveland Point.

Although the day was overcast, as the sun set, we were blessed with a magical sunset, just perfect to enjoy while dancing on the beach.

Brad and Sisifa, congratulations on your special day. May your love for each other continue to grow as you begin the next capture in your lives together.

Just as I was about to leave, I asked Brad’s Aunty if I could take her picture…. the response “no, really no” she got all shy and went on to explain how she has never had a nice picture taken of her. Well hearing this I knew in my heart that I wanted to give her a special gift and so I convinced her to let me see what I could do 🙂 This is the resulting image.

Katie + Phil | Mihaja Real Wedding Workshop

The main event of the wedding workshop that I was luck enough to attend last year with Mihaja Photography, was the wedding of Katie and Phil. Katie and Phil were such a gorgeous couple and didn’t mind at all sharing their day, not only with their loved ones, but also with 14 photographer’s all taking their pictures and they didn’t seem to mind at all. For us it was a wonderful opportunity to continue to develop our wedding photography as we captured the story of Katie and Phil’s Wedding.

It was an amazing weekend, in which I was luck enough to share with some wonderful new friends.

Hope you enjoy my images from Katie and Phil’s wedding

Yulia + Konstantin | Couples in Love Photographer

In the lead up to Valentine’s day, I thought I would share with you a wonderful couple session that I had the pleasure of shooting during the Mihaja Wedding workshop Weekend. Yulia and Konstantin came down from Brisbane to join us at Kingscliffe Beach and were just wonderful. We broke into small groups for this session which was wonderful as it gave each of us an opportunity to work more individually with Yulia and Konstantin and create our own vision.

Kingscliffe beach provided us with such a gorgeous backdrop and being late afternoon we had the most gorgeous light to work with.

Rikki + Jackson | Couple Photographer Brisbane

Late last year, I took part in a Wedding and couple workshop run by Mihaja Photography in Kingscliffe NSW. Each of the 2 afternoons, we would end the day with a fun couple shoot. It was a lovely end to the day. It is such an privilege when 2 people who are in love open themselves up to share their love with us and especially in front of a camera. As you can see, Rikki and Jackson very much have a special bond and I loved being able to capture these images for them.

Shaun + Tamika | Couple Photographer

Shaun and Tamika came to join us late in the afternoon of our Spend a Weekend with Mihaja Photography. They were such a delight to photograph. The love these two shared just radiated from them.

Liane Alyce Event Stylist put together this magical styled shoot for us all to enjoy, and I’m sure you would agree that she did an absolutely wonderful job.

A huge Thank you to Caroline from Mihaja Photography for such a wonderful weekend. Caroline shared so much of herself with us over the weekend and I learnt so much. I can’t wait to join her again for her wedding workshop later this year.

I hope you enjoy my final segment from my gorgeous weekend away in the Country.

Casey + John | Wedding Photographer

It was such an honour to be asked by my sister-in-law to be her wedding photographer for her wedding. From the moment I started hearing about all her plans, I knew that it was going to be something special. Casey and John put so much of themselves into every part of their day, even as far as Casey making her own wedding cake! And the day was just perfect.

Casey looked absolutely gorgeous and I must say (not being bias at all) that she had the most adorable flower girl and the most stunning junior bridesmaid that I have ever seen 🙂

The ceremony was held at St John’s Chapel Camperdown, a gorgeous old chapel in the heart of the city. And then we headed out to beautiful Dunbar House at Watson’s Bay to party the night away with awesome food and lots of dancing.

Congratulations Casey and John, may your life together be full of lots of love and happiness xo

Shaun & Wendy’s Wedding | Brisbane Wedding Photographer

Just before Shaun and Wendy’s wedding day, torrential rain fell on Brisbane. It rained (and I mean really rained) for most of the week leading up to their special day. Shaun and Wendy though were great about it and despite the weather we stuck to our plans for a gorgeous cermony at the Rotunda in Wynnum and then the rain eased a little to allow us to head down around the foreshore for some gorgeous photos.

Shaun is a bit of a star wars fan, and even though he didn’t get his Star War’s themed wedding, some of his mates organised a special surprise – a visit from 501st Legion – a group that enjoy’s dressing up as the star wars characters and goes around to events to raise money for charity. A very special touch to Shaun and Wendy’s amazing day.
