DEB BOOTS, WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER.
I love a good chat over coffee in a trendy cafe space, traveling and dogs are the best!
One day I plan to travel the country living in a Sprinter van whilst taking pictures of my travels.
I am a photographer originally from suburbia Sydney and where my love of taking pictures began. I moved to Brisbane in the name of love and where I began my business as a professional wedding photographer. After 11 years in Brisbane, in 2017 I moved back to Sydney to be near family and continue my journey of documenting love stories.

I am a creative, documentary style photographer that seeks heart and soul in my images.
I prefer natural photos that tell a story.
I prefer candid portraits of people over awkward smiles looking down the camera.
I believe couples should only hire me if they trust me with creating their memories.
I encourage spontaneity from the couples I photograph.
I love natural light, country fields full of wild flowers, golden sunsets and graffiti lined laneways.
I have a vision of how I want to photograph couples and I would love for you to come on that journey with me.
“You don’t make a photograph just with a camera.
You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen,
the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.”
I call Sydney home, but travel up and down the East Coast of Australia to shoot weddings and love stories. If you like what you see get in touch.
Born and raised in Sydney, I discovered photography in around 2000 and it’s been an enjoyable and addictive journey.
While I was debating whether to study my other love, interior design, I purchased my first DSLR camera, a Sony, to explore a different avenue of photography. One where I was going to create art to sell to interior designers as Id been working in the commercial interiors industry. I discovered digital printing and ability to print on canvas – which is laughable now as it’s such a common product, but back then it was a new technique only known to few.
In the process of learning how to use a camera, I fell in love with taking pictures and eventually taking pictures of people.
Through photography, I have made friends I never would have otherwise and found a wonderful community of creatives.
Finally leading me to taking that next step and become a professional photographer in 2009 after relocating to Brisbane.
MY PASSION FOR MY CRAFT
I am a self-taught photographer who has spent many hours playing with her cameras, watching online photography workshops, and attending seminars both here in Australia and overseas. And while I don’t seek affirmation from my peers through entering photography competitions to become an award winning photographer, I put all my energy into creating beautiful images for my couples. I would rather let my couples be my judges. The fact that I have been a full-time photographer and sustaining a photography business since 2009, the couples that continue to hire me each year, and all the lovely reviews I have received over the years, to be the best judges of my wedding photography.
Life has taught me that when you are passionate about something, your drive and motivation can open you to learning more than you could ever imagine. My journey as a photographer has been life changing. My life revolves around photography and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
For many years I have worked in creative industries, but none has brought me as much happiness as documenting people’s stories. I do believe things happen for a reason, and my past has enabled me to be the photographer that I am.
I would love to tell your story.
Every photographer sees things differently,
and how I photograph couples and weddings, is my version of that story.
personal work and travel adventures …
