Brooke Stevens

co founder | photographer

Brookes passion for imagery started as a child and became an obsession after having her children and documenting every precious moment she could hold onto.

After completing a Diploma in Photo imaging in 20015 Brooke moved to Bribie Island and started her business 'Brooke Stevens Photography'.  Since then she has photographed numerous weddings around SE Queensland and Sunshine Coast, but holds a special fondness in seeing people marry on her island home.

Brooke is known for her ability to make you forget about the camera and just be yourselves. With a passion for portraiture, Brooke goes above and beyond in capturing the essence of you, and her style is warm tones, sunsets and all the little details that make up the bigger picture.
