At Purdie Photography, things are done differently. Instead of being locked into a print package where you have to spend hundreds or thousands of dollars, when you hire me to take your portraits, I give you the lightly edited, full resolution, print ready images on USB. You might want to get a big print done, or simply upload the photos to share.

Sessions are always fun, relaxed and full of laughs.

I shoot, lightly edit and put your images on USB or upload to a Google Drive so you can have the images faster.

I do have a favourite park to work in, as I know the best spots to use and how the light works in the afternoon, but I’m open to other locations such as the beach or an urban street setting.

An extra fee may apply to very large groups or for travel.

Sessions last approx 1-1 & 1/2 hours and produce approx 60 plus photos depending on the number of people involved.

Models needing head shots and images for their portfolio are welcome to get in contact to discuss their ideas.  We can do many different looks in one shoot.

For info on what to wear for your portrait session, please see this BLOG POST.


During your day, myself and my skilled Second Shooter, (required for large weddings only) will do our best to cover everything in detail.  It’s all part of capturing history.

All images will be supplied on USB in a super cute 8gb glass bottle style USB, as full resolution lightly edited print ready files. No heavy Photoshop work will be undertaken unless by special request and a fee may apply.

We love designing unique wedding albums for couples as they become heirlooms for future generations.  These are available in two shapes (Square and Rectangle) and in three sizes (Grand A3, A4 & A5) and many different fabrics and bindings to suit most budgets.  They can incorporate vows from your ceremony.

Pre wedding and post wedding evening and weekend appointments available.

Every large booked wedding either comes with a free engagement shoot for you as a couple, or a boudoir shoot as a surprise for the Groom.

When you hire Purdie Photography, we work hard for you all day.  No other events or clients are booked for the same day or later in the day.  No time limits, no stress.  Just us focusing totally on you. We work mostly in the Brisbane and Redlands City area (including the Bay Islands) but are happy to travel as required. Travel fee may apply outside Brisbane depending on location.

As we have attended hundreds of weddings in both a personal and professional capacity, please feel free to ask for suggestions and advice with anything wedding related.

Due to the complicated nature of weddings, your wedding photography package can be tailored to suit your individual needs. 
We’re flexible so please ask.


Over the years I have photographed pretty much everything

From brand new yachts to still life, homes and cars for sale, buses with advertising on them for clients and lots of different businesses.

I promise a quick turnaround to shoot, edit and deliver the images to you as I know things are often time sensitive.

I’m a Licenced Drone Pilot for selected aerial work depending on location.

Please get in touch to discuss your needs.

Boudoir Photography

Let’s face it, none of us are getting any younger,

and there’s no better time to capture you as you are right now.

Sometimes people put it off and then it can be too late.

Boudoir -ˈbuːdwɑː/ - a woman's bedroom or small private room (Photography in…)"

Part of the Boudoir photography experience is to purchase or gather together outfits you love.  Spend some money just on you for a change.  Get a few different sets of sexy lingerie, corsets, or baby doll outfits that you know you look amazing in.  You purchase something just for you, it looks great on and then you want to be photographed.  That’s where I come in.

In the privacy of your own home, let me capture you as the beautiful woman you are.  Don’t worry about the parts of you that aren’t perfect.  I use props, camera techniques and posing to minimize the not so loved and work with your great parts.  I also don’t judge and we’ll have lots of laughs while working together.

Working with your outfits, fabric, rose petals, bed sheets, pearl necklaces, garters, stockings, sexy high heels, corsets, large teddy bears, coats and jackets and anything else you like, we can make some amazing images together.  I have fabric and rose petals but you need to collect together anything you would like in the images along with your own outfits plus take care of your hair and makeup or visit a salon and/or makeup artist immediately before our appointment.  Some brides to be, schedule a hair and makeup trial immediately before our session and it works out well.

We will need at least one tidy area to work in such as your bedroom.  Hanging Christmas fairy lights on the wall behind the bed is a great idea too.

The images are lightly edited with a soft focus filter applied to some images to give you a dreamy look but heavy Photoshop work is not undertaken as I believe you should look real not fake.

Images supplied at full resolution print ready on USB.  I can show you a beautiful small coffee table book at the time of our shoot and will make one for you upon request after the shoot.  Please get in touch to discuss your ideas. 

Sorry guys, ladies only.
