Sutherland Shire Family Photography & Wedding Portrait Locations

We have chosen locations across the Sutherland Shire that are suitable for Wedding & Family Portrait Photography. You are welcome to suggest your own location or have photos taken at home.

A lot goes into choosing a great Portrait Photography location, light a various times of the day, variety of setting, privacy and convince. We’re confident in what we do at any location and time so really the most important factor is a relaxed environment for you, that could be privacy, by the water or convince and open environment for kids.
