Award-winning photographers Angie Simms and Stuart Quinn are dedicated to capturing life's most beautiful, and important, moments, on film.

Since we first picked up our cameras - long before we met and married - we've passionately believed photography can not only capture, but also help to make, wonderful memories. From engagements, weddings and life's other big milestones to the smaller, more intimate, moments, we love to be part of people's journey through life. So now let's tell you a bit about ours.   

Across the years, we've worked everywhere from daily newspapers and lifestyle magazines to digital and commercial clients. We specialise in creative collaborations and even published our own cookbook, Eat, Drink and Be Straddie, which you can find here.

Outside working hours, meanwhile, we're all about squeezing the most out of every day, whether that's camping with our dog Chester, admiring a spectacular sunset on the beach, playing board games or even eating far too much cheese over a wine (or two) with good friends. We're also passionate about leaving the world in better shape than we found it, which is why we donate a portion of our profits to local community causes.

At heart, for us, it always comes back to Minjerribah (the Indigenous name for Stradbroke Island) where we have found a contentment, happiness, joy and peace we love to share. If you'd like to learn more, or work with us in any capacity, please get in contact here....    

Lets not do awkward posing. Lets do those crazy, silly, natural, quirky, considerate, passionate things that you both have together. We love real, and hanging out with real people and real love, it is what this is about after all... So lets get real.


With an eye for unique imagery and a warm, vibrant personality, photographer Kat Hawley is always in demand.

Since graduating from photographic college, I've been fortunate enough to live and work all over Australia, from the wilds of WA to the beautiful bushland of northern NSW and now the spectacular natural delights of Stradbroke Island.  

Captivated by the process of telling entire stories in a single image, I specialise in weddings, portraiture, landscapes, commercial work, content creation and much more besides.

My style has been described as funky, candid, passionate, unobtrusive, relaxed and stress free, but ultimately, what I love to do is create a fun, freeing and comfortable atmosphere where we can capture beautiful and authentic moments together.
