Pet Photographer

pet photographer

It isn’t often someone steals my heart but Rosie most certainly did! As a pet photographer I meet a lot of fur babies and love their unique charms and personalities! Rosie was just beautiful – so easy to photograph, so well behaved and such a loving and obedient puppy!

“They look fantastic, you got so many great ones of Rosie!! Really appreciate everything, you’ve been fantastic!” Jo

And so were her parents Jo and Jarrah! Jo had called a few weeks earlier wanting some pet photographs to capture Rosie before her surgery. I jumped at the chance! Every day is different for photographers and I love the chance for some weekend pet photography!

As with all of my family photography sessions, I get as many different combinations as possible. Pet photography is no different and I mixed up the combos early on! Rosie was an absolute gem in her solo photos, sitting on demand, staying when told to do so – as did her parents! On occasion 😉

We took the pet photography photos at Wellington Point Reserve. It is a great location with bay views, Moreton Bay figs and an open grassy area for Rosie to run around in. A pet photographer usually needs a degree of patience but not so with Rosie! She was a dream! And she even let me get some lovely couple photos of her Mum and Dad!

Our pet photography sessions start at $149 for a 30 minute shoot in the Redlands. To capture the unique personality of your fur babies, we would love to hear from you!

Same Sex Wedding Photographer

same sex wedding photographer

If you are on the look out for a same sex wedding photographer, I would love to help out! Hi, my name is Andy Williams and I have been photographing weddings for over ten years. I have also been photographing same sex weddings since they (finally!) became legalised in 2017! So you know you are in good hands. Behind experience comes reliability.

“Hey Andy – Just want to say a massive thank you for the photos. They are absolutely amazing and everyone has been so impressed. It has really tied our wedding in the most beautiful way”. Aaron

My first ever same sex wedding as a photographer was a (semi-legal!) wedding in Beerwah for an amazing couple Millie and Nat who had been legalised in New Zealand and were having their showcase ceremony for friends and family here in Queensland. Since then I have photographed close to 50 same sex weddings, my latest one being the wedding of Aaron and Brody on the Gold Coast.

Being a Gold Coast wedding photographer, I have photographed at most venues, including QT Hotel where Aaron and Brody said their ‘I Dos’! Its an amazing venue with a fantastic private upstairs area, with amazing gardens flowing onto a private wedding ceremony deck!

The ceremony was officiated by the bubbly Mel Yusia who added an awesome splash of humour and emotion to the ceremony!

Gold Coast Wedding Photographer

The ceremony itself was filled with emotion and tears. Following some group shots we headed to the beach for some groom and groom wedding photography.

I love photographing on the beach. Although a busy Saturday afternoon does make for more challenges! The boys (and I!) ended up in the water but we got some amazing shots then headed back for the festivities!

The boys booked our 2-hour Elopement Wedding Package. We have several wedding photography packages to suit all days! You can check them out here.

Mini Photo Shoots

If you are looking for an affordable way to get a selection of amazing family photographs, our Mini Photo Shoots could be exactly what you are looking for! Lasting just 20 minutes (how kid-friendly is that?!), our mini photo sessions include 10 high resolution digital images without any compulsory print spend or added extras!

With the ever changing economy, I thought a budget-friendly option to photography would prove popular, and it really has! Mini Photo Sessions are here to stay!

The feedback has been amazing so I am going to make the mini shoots a regular thing! I will lock out a particular day every couple of months for a Mini Shoot Day, either in New Farm Park, or near me in Wellington Point Reserve!

Affordable Family Photography Brisbane

The shorter photo shoot time has been amazingly popular! Even the most restless of kids can stay still for 20 minutes! It has meant easier, more relaxed family photo sessions and without a hefty price tag! And that’s the best part – the Mini sessions at Wellington Point are only $99, and in New Farm Park they are $129! How good is that?

All of the family photographs on this page were taken at our mini photo shoots, so as you can see there is boundless option for photo combinations and locations.

As always, there are no restrictions to the number of people attending the shoot. A few things to remember:

  1. Mini shoots last for 20 minutes and include 10 high resolution digital images
  2. A non refundable deposit of $50 is required to confirm the booking. No shows or late arrivals will forfeit the deposit. The balance is due on the day.
  3. Allow plenty of time for parking and delays! Mini shoots are time specific and late arrivals will eat into your shoot time!

You can check our next Mini Shoot Days on our Portrait Photography Page. Or you can email me at andy@athousandmilesphotography.com.au or call me on 0468 405225

I look forward to seeing you soon!

Affordable Maternity Photographer

affordable maternity photographer

Although it may feel as if you have already been pregnant for years, those precious maternity months fly by all too quickly! An affordable maternity photographer, such as Andy Williams of A Thousand Miles Photography, can capture those amazing moments before the life change of Bub’s arrival.

We have two options for maternity photographs – either a standalone maternity shoot at a location of your choice, or we have a very popular maternity and newborn package available. This includes a 30-minute maternity shoot at Wellington Point Reserve (where these photos were taken!) and a 2-hour newborn shoot at your home. The total cost for this package is just $499 and will include 20 high resolution digital images from the maternity shoot and 40 from the newborn session!

You can get more information at this link, or we would love to hear from you!

So when is the best time to do an affordable maternity photography shoot? The best general advice is to have the baby bump photos taken around the 32-36 week mark when the bump is big but not too close to your due date that we may miss out!

Affordable Newborn Photographer

And what about the newborn photo shoot? Generally when Bub is around 2 weeks old, but in truth any time in the first 6 weeks works well!

A good affordable maternity photographer will give you some guidance for poses and advice on what clothing to wear. Something that makes you feel beautiful and confident works well, and something that will show off that glorious bump to maximum effect!

If you are considering having some affordable maternity photographs taken, we guarantee you won’t regret it! These months are too fleeting and capturing these priceless moments are a must!

We would love to hear from you! Andy Williams xx

Wedding Photographer Redlands

wedding photographer redlands

Having lived in the beautiful Redlands for almost ten years, I know the area very well and have photographed well over 100 weddings in the region. If you are on the search for a wedding photographer Redlands, I’d love to hear from you!

Jen and Bruce called me for their amazing back yard wedding in Sheldon and were delighted with my suggestions for bridal party photography! A Redlands-based wedding photographer knows the best spots for photos – a local always knows best!

We started with some bridal prep photos at Jen’s parent’s place, then I headed to Jen and Bruce’s property for the nervous tension phase of the day! I was delighted to see Fiona Eady from Ceremonies by The Bay was the celebrant for the day – being a local herself she knows the area well and her fun and laid back delivery is always welcome! https://www.ceremoniesbythebay.com.au/

The ceremony was amazingly delivered, with plenty of humour, emotion and tears!

I always the taking the group photo at a wedding – it is usually the most difficult photo to get as you need to have 100+ people looking at the camera at the same time and smiling! And sometimes we have an escapee!

Redlands Wedding Photographer

And following the ceremony we headed to West Mt Cotton Road for the bridal party photos! This is always my favourite part of the day when the bride and groom can finally relax and I get to be creative!

We had an amazing sunset and fantastic light so I was a happy Redlands wedding photographer as we headed back for the reception!

So if you are looking for a fun, relaxed wedding photographer in the Redlands, I would love to hear from you!

“Just wanted to say thankyou so much for our photos – they are absolutely beautiful! There are so many nice moments that you captured perfectly so thankyou so much”

Mt Tamborine Wedding Photographer

mt tamborine wedding photographer

Anyone who has ever met me knows how meticulous and obsessively detailed I am with wedding arrangements and timings! So how strange it was to photograph a full day wedding without being in charge!

Bjorn Schmal from In Love Weddings had contacted me to help with the wedding photography for Lee and Tim for their Old Church wedding on Mt Tamborine. The plan was for Bjorn to look after the video side of things, and me the photos. I jumped at the chance as Bjorn and I have worked together before and we share a very similar outlook on capturing weddings, and he’s a great bloke and top videographer too! (https://www.inlove-weddings.com/)

We met for a coffee before the wedding and ran through the plans, then spent a fun and relaxed couple of hours capturing Tim and his boys, and Lee and her girls getting ready.

Being an experienced Mt Tamborine wedding photographer meant that I knew the venue well and had photographed there before. We were also blessed with fabulous weather so headed outside for some family photos.

Old Church Mt Tamborine

Bjorn and I work very well together and never get in each other’s way! Having photographed and videoed over 20 weddings together, we know how each other work and have an awesome synergy! We also share the same sense of humour and our relaxed outlook on life takes away all the stresses from your wedding!

Once the getting ready photos had been taken it was time for the real deal! The ceremony! The Old Church has a beautiful chapel that makes for fantastic wedding photographs regardless of the weather!

One of my favourite things about Mt Tamborine weddings is the number of photography locations available! We first headed to the rainforest then Hang Glider Hill for sunset. Oh wow, how amazing do the photos look!

And following a beautiful sunset, it was time to party!

Interior Photography

interior photography

Having a series of high quality interior photographs of your office or business will do wonders for your website. The API day-care centre at Milton wanted some fresh interior photographs of their centre for a branding refresh, so I headed down there one Sunday whilst the centre was child-free for an interior photography session.

Interior photography is very different to wedding and family photography. In many ways interior photography is far easier as all you need is a tidy room and a tripod!

In three hours we were able to get over 150 photos of the day-care centre. I photographed every one of the rooms, got some branding photographs in the reception area, and got some detail photos in each of the rooms. I also ventured outside for some external shots of the day-care centre.

If you are looking for a rebrand or a website refresh, an interior photography session is a great way to brighten your brand. We work seven days a week so can come to you whenever works for you.

Andy has been taking interior photographs for over a decade so works quickly and non-invasively, and with rapid turn around times and affordable rates, you will be in very good hands! For a quote, or to chat about your needs please feel free to contact us.

Headshot Photography

A great website needs great images. A picture tells a thousand words, right?! And a series of fantastic headshots will not only bring your website to life, but will show your clients who they are dealing with. Phone selfies just don’t cut it these days – one sharp, stylised, and edited image will do the work of 100 blurry I-Phone photos! Headshot photography is a must to set you apart from your competition.

Happily I work fast! So when I get called out to a headshot shoot, we will regularly get several different headshots and poses in a very short time frame. I will travel to your workplace with my camera gear and lighting and will you have you looking fantastic in minutes!

headshot photographer

The guys at Revolve Projects and Bayer Stevens share office space in Windsor, so in an hour we were able to get several different headshots of each person, both full height, and closer head shots, and even had time for some interior office photos too.

An hour goes by very quickly but the difference it will make to your website and social media presence is immense. Professional photography gives your business a professional outlook.

We travel to you so disruption and time out of the office is minimal. We also turn around 95% of jobs within a week. Each photography job is different so contact us for a quote, but most headshot photography jobs within the Brisbane area are $299 for an hour.
