“Create whatever causes a revolution in your heart.” – Elizabeth Gilbert
Hi, I’m Krista!
Thanks for taking a look through my site. I guess you’ve landed here on this page so that you can find out a little more about the person behind the camera. So here goes…
My journey with photography began at the ripe old age of about 10 years old. My dad owned and ran one of Brisbane’s most successful and long running wedding photography businesses – TWK Studio. Dad would often take me out on weddings with him and I took great pleasure in being the little assistant. Fetching the film, holding the flowers, fixing the dresses and probably wishing I was a flowergirl in an 80’s style puffed sleeved satin dress.
Once I left school I worked for Dad in the dark room developing black and white photographs. It was here that I fell in love with the magic that is photography. I shot my first wedding when I was 18 – no digital cameras back then – and thus began my journey as a wedding photographer. So…that would mean I’ve been wearing my photographer hat for about 20 years now (just gave away my age didn’t I!) Over the years I’ve literally shot hundreds of weddings.
I had a little break from photography in 2015, moved our little family from Brisbane to the Sunshine Coast, sorted out some health issues, dabbled in other things, went back to school for a while and even toyed with the idea that I could be a nurse. It was a necessary journey… but it led me right back to where I started.
After lots of personal discovery, change and growth I realised that photography filled a gaping hole in me that I didn’t even realise was there until I filled it again. I stand here with my camera in hand realising that it’s photography that causes a revolution in my heart and I can’t wait to dive right back in and start creating all over again. (Thanks Elizabeth Gilbert! If you haven’t read her book “Big Magic” you really should).
Nothing gives me more pleasure than photographing human connection, relationships and events. To you my future Sunshine Coast wedding and portrait clients, I want nothing more than to give you beautiful, authentic, photographic stories that reflect just how you were in that moment.
But enough about me… I wanna hear about you! Fill in that little contact form below so we can talk all about what you’d like out of your wedding photography or portrait session.
