What makes


With a love for photojournalism, I am a creative published photographer that specialises in Weddings, Editorial and Event Photography. Edgy and in the moment, I love to capture emotion and personality. Creative and with graphic design and print experience, I live and work on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland with my husband and two kiddies. It’s lucky I live near the Sunshine Coast Airport as the last 12 months have sent me interstate to shoot weddings and events for my awesome clients. I am very proud to say that the majority of my clients are repeat work and from word of mouth recommendations.

visual story teller…

I’ve always been a creative and have studied many aspects of art, design and film and television. Starting out as a professional photographer in 2012 after my husband gave me a little shove into the industry by buying my first Nikon DSLR camera was an exciting one. I have never looked back, shooting my first wedding soon after along with family portraits, products, model portfolios, exhibitions, body art industry awards and shooting for national and international publications. Natural, not too posed, candid, elegant and captivating are some of the words that clients and professionals in the industry have used when describing my work. I love event photography as I can capture the day for you while you are busy in the moment. I promise to do my best to capture the essence of your Event, Wedding Day or Product Photography shoot.

Important things to consider…

I am at your wedding to capture the day in a quiet and professional manner and will always be there to help out with getting ready if I can. The style of my photography is candid, I prefer to take pictures naturally rather than posing you for every shot. Please advise your bridal party and family that they don’t need to do anything apart from be themselves. I will take care of the photography and will do my best to capture the essence of your special day. Also, please let your guests know if you would rather they leave the photography of the ceremony up to me. It is all over in the blink of an eye and usually in a small space. Make it clear to guests if you want to put the first pictures up on social media. xo

We are over the moon with everything Carly did for us on the day. We highly recommend Carlylooyah Wedding Photography . Carly is such a beautiful person and it shows through her work. xo
