I’m Nina, a documentary-style wedding and family photographer. I am a visual storyteller who specialises in moments and I get the biggest thrill from capturing a moment I know you will love reliving over and over.
I believe in adventure, beauty + human connection.
I believe that love is love.
I believe that everyone has a story worth telling.
That’s why creating beautifully honest stories of love and human connection is so important.
I have a passion for travel, driven by a deep curiosity of the world. My background in architecture and design has allowed me to explore some incredible corners of the world, working, volunteering and photographing. In mid 2013, I returned to Hobart after a long hiatus, including two years teaching architecture in Uganda. While my heart has been stolen by Africa, my identity will forever linger with my Tasmanian roots. I am so happy to be home again, on my beautiful island, from which I draw much inspiration and where I document some pretty darn wonderful love stories.
Oh, I also believe that a cup of tea can solve almost anything.

I love to connect with couples who approach their wedding day in a relaxed and thoughtful way that reflects their life, their style and their love. Every wedding story is different; you're unique and your relationship is as well. I want to tell your story in a way that feels true to you.
I believe in a people-first approach to photography; people, human connections and in-between moments first; the material details help tell the story, but they are not the most important part.
I seek beauty in the ordinary, the everyday and the in-between. I’ll be there to capture the loud, quiet and stolen moments, and the in-between, sometimes hidden, details as your day unfolds. Those in-between moments are what makes a day truly wonderful - a stolen glance, your dad crying hard, your granny out-dancing everyone on the dance floor, your favourite people creating joy around you. These are the real and beautiful memories that will be important to you in years to come.

Let's be real here - few people enjoy having their photo taken; others find it a super awkward experience. I'm one of those super awkward people; I get you. So I promise to make the experience relaxed and joyful. I will move quietly through the day with you, and gently guide you through the portraits, so you feel at ease in front of the camera. I aim to capture the real and beautiful interactions without excessive direction or awkward posing.
I work intuitively, and my approach is simple, unobtrusive and photojournalistic - nothing too posed but enough direction to help put you at ease. I just ask you to let go a little, be present in those little moments and be yourself; I will do the rest.
If my relaxed, documentary-style of photography resonates with you, let's grab a cuppa (or wine),
you can tell me all about your amazing plans and we can create a visual story which is perfectly you.
