Hi, I'm Cherrod!
A Brisbane, Australia based wedding and elopement photographer.
Since you clicked on this page I’m guessing you want to know more about me so here’s a little tidbit about myself and some photos to put a face to my name.
Most days you can find me wearing 15 different hats, doing multiple aspects of what it means to be a photographer, and while yes, I do sit behind a computer and edit a ton of photos, and I do go to awesome, beautiful places to take photos of people (which is what most assume is all that I do), I am also the dress fluffer, veil fixer, location scouter, and timeline planner.
I’m a girl who was born and raised in the U.S., lived in ten different U.S. states, a couple of different countries, and now I call Brisbane, Australia my home thanks to finding my now Aussie fiance along the way of my nomadic journey. Cue the cliche “I love to travel” hobby statement, but on the for reals, I’m pretty sure this was something ingrained in my DNA.
An “adventurous planner” is a description that all my friends would use to describe me — and yes you can be a planner and adventurous at the same time. In fact, I love love loveeeeee adventure weddings — so much in fact that I’m actually in the middle of planning my own!
A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS:
Why wedding photography?
My photography venture started out with a lot of sports photography believe it or not. It was something that I did in yearbook club for three years in High School, and eventually took on as work in my early adulthood because it allowed me to travel to different cities and experience new places — the travelholic in me just couldn’t say no!
As much as I enjoyed it, I just couldn’t fill the void in my heart of not having human interaction and made the leap to a niche that allowed me to work with people more and let my creativity flow! I can now happily say that I love the work that I put out.
I would describe my style as passionate, adventurous, and fun. Really I think this is how life should be lived (how I try to live mine!) and how I portray my work. In my photos, I want to capture you both for who you are, what makes you unique, what makes you guys you, and how you both portray your love for each other. This is also why I’m such a big advocate for making your wedding day the way you want it!
