I specialize in candid photography, a style which allows me to capture the real moments for you throughout your day.

I specialise in candid photography, a style which allows me to capture the real moments for you, throughout your day.

​I always want my clients to remember their wedding, and it is my passion that my couples receive wedding photography that genuinely tells the story of their wedding day.

I can help capture your special day with affordable, candid photography packages. Starting from just $500.00, I can customise the perfect, hassle free photography package, including portraiture, video and drone options as well as a private online gallery delivery.

All packages are customisable, so if you have an idea, let me help bring you idea to life.

I am based in Tropical North Queensland and South East Queensland, with a mobile studio available to reach all parts of Queensland and beyond. 


I fell in love with Queensland, so I moved here after many years travelling the world. Time spent in the hustle and bustle of Sydney, Dubai and London could simply not compete with the incredibly romantic and diverse lifestyle Queensland provides. Photography has been a growing passion of mine for almost 5 years now, and my candid style allows for me to capture the real moments in a creative and modern format.

Mr Rian Cope



I am very lucky to call both Port Douglas & the Gold Coast home.  My weddings, elopements, proposals, and other celebrations see me travel around Queensland regulary. I have a mobile studio which allows me to work remotely. I am also avaiable to travel around Australia and internationally. 

Absolutley! Mixing my passion for wedding photography and travel is perfect. 

There is no limit on how many images I take during a wedding. But you can expect around 1000 for some of my most popular packages. I provide my clients with edited high-resolution shots from their wedding. These are delivered via your private online gallery. I can also deliver these via USB, Dropbox or at an extra cost, facilitate photo books and prints. 

I'll happily deliver/post your photos around 4 weeks after your wedding.

You can print until your heart is content. Each package includes the high-resolution files. You have rights to the images and can use them how you choose. 


Me. You’ll deal with me the whole time, from the first email all the way to when I deliver your images after the wedding.

No problem, I'm here to capture those candid moments. Most of the time you won't know I'm taking photos, or you'll be so engaged with each other that everything will seem natural. 

To create a visual story of your day the sweet spot is around 6 hours. This way I can shoot you both getting ready right through to the reception. I do offer optional add on's which can really help to document your day. 

An unplugged wedding really just refers to the ceremony, not the rest of the day, and refers to a ceremony where the couple ask / tell their guests to put their phones and cameras away for the ceremony. No photos taken by guests at all during the ceremony. I absolutely think you should have an unplugged ceremony. There are a few good reasons to do this:

• So your guests don’t get in my way, meaning that I won’t miss the really lovely photo opportunities that you’ve paid me to shoot

• So when you look out at your guests during the ceremony, you’ll see them sharing your wedding with you, rather than see their faces hidden behind mobiles and cameras

Yum, I love food. I'm happy to sneak out in another room or you can put me on a table with your guests (I'd love to meet your closest family and friends). 

Please get in touch so I can check my calendar. Feel free to give me a call at any stage too.

Rian did an awesome job and providee us with a couple of great shots on the day after the wedding already. That was extremely helpful for organising our thank-you-cards after the wedding.
