Serenity Photography

Queenstown Photographer & Brisbane Photographer

We are a fine-art wedding photography studio based in Australia and specialise in documenting destination weddings and elopements all over the world. We consider ourselves visual poets, romantics, and storytellers, and our work is all about capturing connection, raw emotions, authentic moments, and creating family heirlooms. Deeply inspired by classic literature, European architecture, and beautiful scenery; we love working with couples with refined aesthetics and appreciation for beautiful details.

Our studio is hands-on and we like being involved in every aspect of the planning process; offering guidance on choice of locations, lighting, and timeline scheduling; to create the best possible photographs. During the months leading to the wedding day we build a rapport with our clients so they feel beautiful and comfortable to express themselves naturally in front of the camera. We want portraits to be gently styled without feeling overly posed by carefully selecting light and composition, thus creating images that are timeless yet authentic and full of heartfelt moments with a hint of curated artistry.

We seamlessly adapt to the rhythm of the wedding day, becoming delicate and gentle when capturing intimate moments and energetic when the dancing begins.

We love beautiful aesthetics of film, complimenting it with digital for low light situations and photojournalistic coverage.

Our lead photographer - Anastasia Woolmington - is a multi-award-winning photographer and Fujifilm global ambassador who blends her skill photographing spellbinding scenery with emotive portraiture resulting in dreamy artistic images.

Interview

IF I HAVE A FREE SUNDAY I WOULD SPEND IT… taking landscape photos or reading a good book.

MY MOST MEMORABLE TRAVEL EXPERIENCE WAS… to New Zealand for our elopement wedding, followed by a honeymoon exploring this beautiful country with my husband and taking landscape photos.

THE COUNTRY I MOST WANT TO VISIT IS… so far I’ve been fortunate to visit 55 countries, next on my destination list is Greenland.

WHAT I LOVE MOST ABOUT MY JOB IS… love, all expressions of love. It gives me so much happiness to see that in between everything that is going on in our world there is still so much love. Between partners, parents, grandparents, children, friends. It just warms up my heart and inspires my work.

IF I DIDN’T DO THIS FOR A JOB I WOULD BE/DO… before becoming a professional wedding photographer, I worked as a diplomat in United Nations for 8 years, I would continue working there.

IF I COULD GIVE NEWLY ENGAGED COUPLES ONE PIECE OF ADVICE IT WOULD BE… while organising your wedding, listen and respect each other and learn to compromise. Don’t try to please anyone, this is your wedding.

I LOVE WHERE I LIVE BECAUSE… of kind and respectful Australian people.

IF I COULD LIVE ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD IT WOULD BE… Iceland.

MY FAVOURITE MOVIE IS? Pride and prejudice. I am a hopeless romantic.

MOST MEMORABLE MEAL I’VE EVER EATEN WAS… dancing squid dish in Japan.

THE PETS I OWN ARE… a fluffy Maltese called Cujie. He is my sweetest and funniest little friend.
