I admire deep smiles and genuine fun couples who are just a little bit adventurous, like me!

As a Sunshine Coast Wedding Photographer, meeting couples who are deeply in love and openly show it with authenticity and honesty is a great delight for me.

Deep smiles and the sparks of passion set amongst the stunning backdrops of locations around the Sunshine Coast make for radiant images.
This is what drives me to photograph weddings!


I also want to let you know that, even though I live on the Sunshine Coast, I do travel and photograph all over Australia.


I am there to be a friend as well and am always thrilled to be part of your day.

I look forward to be speaking with you soon.

Questions and Answers

question has been submitted to Easy Weddings for review.

Something went wrong, please try again soon.

How fast are you as far as turnaround time, weeks, months etc.?

I provide all of your edited images within 2-4 weeks. Sometimes (depending on my current workload) they may even be ready earlier. Read what brides write about my turnaround times.  I cannot begin to tell you about some of the horror stories that I’ve heard about other photographers taking months after months to get your precious moments to you then there are some who have… simply lost your images or just went out of business. Sad but true. This has never happened under my watch nor will it ever happen with me because I back up all your images in 4 different places.

We’re a bit nervous about being photographed, having forced smiles and awkward poses, how do you handle this?

Over the years I have developed a knack for making everyone feel comfortable around me. This comes from being a sincere and genuinely fun person. Because of this my work always appears natural and full of joy for all my couples. I use a variety of little tricks to I’ve developed during my long experience to make sure everyone comes out looking like they have had the best day of their lives. I’ve developed a kind of insight that allows me to find the optimum locations in any given situation. This ability gives couples some space to be themselves and allows the love they feel for each other to come shining through.

What makes a wedding easy or hard to shoot? The venue? The couple? The light?

Every wedding like every couple is unique each brings its own challenges and opportunities to capture the spectrum of human emotion. Each one has its own demands and its moments of effortlessness.  Every wedding is a live event with many aspects totally out of anyone’s control especially the weather! Any given venue contributes greatly to the ease or difficulty of capturing momentous images. With that said adaptability has been the key to my success (and come prepared for anything). As a lover of light my vision is sensitively tuned to use it and create magic images. Whether the day is bright and sunny or full of dramatic clouds filled with rain each can be used to my advantage. However first and foremost I am there for the couple, to make them happy with full respect for them and their guests. I adore taking those gorgeous candid shots, capturing fleeting moments full of enchantment.

What advice do you have for getting the most out of our wedding photography?

The most important advice I give is to number one, fully enjoy your wedding day with your beloved, your family, friends, and guests. Leave the rest to me and I will capture every moment for you. I will also send you (in advance) additional emails with further advice on what types of rooms in which to prepare for the day, appropriate backgrounds and above all natural light. You have no doubt put in a lot of time planning all the details of your monumental wedding day and my brief is also to capture and preserve all the effort you have put into this. I like to get all the precious little details and the surprise instants often missed by others.

Why do you like shooting weddings?

As odd as it may seem, I started out as an electrician during the week and a lifeguard on weekends. I enjoyed shooting motocross enthusiasts and their extreme stunts for fun but I also wanted to make sport filming a job too. One day a wedding photographer who I didn't know found my number on a CD and loved my motorbike video. He said come and film a wedding for my business as you have a great eye for filming. I was asked to bring my camera skills to shoot a wedding. It was the first time I went to a wedding in my life and I was filming it. It changed my life. The results so wow-ed my them that they recommended me to others and suddenly discovered something that I truly loved to do. In essence, I found my dream job one that not only makes me extremely happy but all the couples I have worked with as well. In short, I am a genuine people person. I love being around joyful people and what better way to do so than at weddings. I sincerely love capturing wonderful memories for couples and the creative challenges that it presents.

AMAZING!!!! Seriously, spend the money and book this talented man! You will not regret it! He captures moments and you don't even know he's there. So energetic, fun and we will look back on our wedding photos for years to come!!!

Absolutely stunning photography!! We are in total awe of our photos. Luke is a genuine, loving guy who made us feel at ease on our perfect day! Excellent communication, amazing quality, yet fast turnaround. We can't thank you enough for helping to make our day that little bit more special.

Luke was amazing. Such an upbeat guy. He effortlessly managed to make my husband and I feel comfortable in front of the camera. And the pictures he took?! AMAZING. We’ve even had a friend change their photographer to book with Luke for their upcoming wedding- he’s just that good! Great communication, great turnaround. I have nothing but praise for this guy.

I had seen Luke's work on Instagram for a number of years so when we got engaged Luke was the only one I wanted to have. Luke captured some amazing shots of our day and we received our image gallery 4 weeks after our wedding. We had an engagement shoot with Luke which I think definitely made us feel more ease on our wedding day. His work speaks for itself.

Wow! We are blown away by Luke. If you're looking for a guy who knows his stuff, and you're lucky enough to have him available - take him! His positive and friendly attitude was there from the start. He was an absolute pleasure to communicate with and was very friendly and down to earth. A true Sunshine Coaster! He made us feel calm, relaxed and comfortable. We enjoyed the experience so much, we forgot Luke was even taking photos. We were astonished at the amount of photos he managed to take in 2 hours! Every single one of them is beautiful, and there are about 400 there - so many more than we expected! Luke was enthusiastic, proactive, very good at giving us directions and incredibly helpful on the day. He was very encouraging and knew exactly what he was doing. We can't recommend him enough.

Luke recently photographed our wedding and I could not recommend him enough. My husband hates photos but Luke made us both feel so comfortable and he was so much fun to be around on our big day. Thank you so much Luke. Our photos are better then I ever could have imagined.

16 Jun 2018

Luke is nothing short of exceptional! He captured the day with beauty and did not miss a beat. Every key moment was captured in a way that caught all the raw emotion. He knew where to be, when to be there and was outstanding. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him and I am so pleased we had Luke capture our wedding day.

Luke was fantastic. The photos are fantastic also. Great with communication. He recorded our first dance as well as going our photos.

They were excellent. Very good service.

We love that we can relive our special day through video - highly recommend videography!! We were hesitant to book, but looking at playback studio's previous work we had to add it on to our photography package! Boy are we glad we did!! It is so great to be able ti hear the music and special words shared on our special day

25 Sep 2015

Amazing, creative and professional team! We are thrilled with our wedding pics! We have had so many people have commented on the photos, saying it looked like a magic day - which it was - and we are so happy that playback studios captured this perfectly!

22 Nov 2014

these guys were really professional- they were well presented they got some great shots and the video was great at the end. the only thing the are a little prices but justified from the editing. When it came to adjustments, they did charge rather then being a little flexible

21 Nov 2014

We booked Playback for a photography and videography package. The videographer was amazing on the day, and made everyone feel at ease. Quick turnaround (< 4 weeks). The only downfall is what we received is different to the videos we'd seen on their Facebook page (eg full uncut ceremony).

21 Nov 2014

We found Playback through our venue, and booked them for a photography and videography package. Sean & Stewart were amazing on the day, and made everyone feel at ease. The photos and videos were great, and we received them within 4 weeks of our wedding day.
