Meet the Photographers; Ang & Stu

Hi there! We’re Ang, Stu – and Chester our fur baby – and we’re thrilled you’ve dropped by our little corner of the world to say hello. We’d love to talk all things photography and videography with you. But first, here’s a little of our story…

As long-time Straddie residents, passionate travellers and adventurous spirits, much of our life together (yep, we’re married) has been viewed through a camera lens. We’ve worked for metro and community newspapers, shot for lifestyle magazines, featured in photography exhibitions, collaborated with famous brands such as 4 Ingredients, contributed to tourism campaigns of all kinds and helped thousands of people to capture memories for a lifetime.

As you can imagine, it’s been a wonderfully eclectic journey. But in among the amazing opportunities there has been one common thread.

Which is that we’re not just about giving you amazing photography and videography (although that’s a given), we’re also about giving you an amazing, enjoyable and creative experience.

Whether we’re shooting your wedding or elopement, recording lasting memories of a getaway with friends, helping your business update its suite of imagery, or simply capturing a portrait for posterity, we’ll make sure you enjoy the process as much as the outcome.

We’ll put you at ease, help you pose like a natural, unleash that killer smile, capture the warmth of your family or nail the perfect mood and message to promote your brand.

Throw in Straddie as the world’s most beautiful backdrop – unless you want us to travel, which we’re totally up for – and the end results are stunning.

Just ask the people who’ve worked with us before and who come back to us again and again to capture their big life milestones.

Put simply, we love our life, we love our jobs and we’d love to work with you. So give us a call or drop us a line. We’re always up for a chat.

Heck yeah, we wrote a book!

Brought to life in rich and vivid detail through the award-winning lens of North Stradbroke Island creatives Angie Simms and Stuart Quinn, Eat, Drink and Be Straddie is an adventure and a recipe book all rolled into one.

Coming in at 200 pages, the full-colour tome boasts more than 100 recipes focused on the freshest island ingredients and ideas, as well as feature stories on Straddie producers, an island timeline and much, much more.

Let’s do those crazy, silly, natural, quirky, considerate, passionate things… let’s 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.
