|Hi I'm Carol - principal photographer and owner of Carol Slater Photography
I've always loved photography, catching that moment in time. Looking back at old family photographs..... I can spend hours! I extend that same passion to you and your family and look forward to capturing your special moments.
I prefer to photograph a smaller amount of weddings per year so you know you will get personalised service. Although I may have a second photogapher with me at times, I will always be the photographer who turns up on your special day. Weddings are such a special occassion and I genuinely love to be there spending the day with you
Portraits are also a specialty of mine. Locations such as beaches, parks and even the city or country lend themselves to fun interaction with your loved ones but if the weather isn't so great we can utilise my studio for small groups. The choice is yours. Let's have some fun!
I'm available for Brisbane, Sunshine Coast, Gold Coast, Northern New South Wales and Toowoomba areas. Interstate travel is also available.
I hope to meet you soon

Having studied photography in the days of film I would spend hours in my B&W darkroom and emerge smelling of chemicals which were terrible for the environment. I was never keen on the gelatin (dried powdered animals feet) contained in film either. I am so pleased to be shooting digitally these days - immersed in Photoshop instead of chemicals. Ensuring the image is how I want it before printing means a lot less paper has been used.
My family and I have moved towards an environmentally friendly way of life at home and I believe my photography should also move in this direction. I feel is up to us to leave this world healthy for future generations. We are always looking for new ways to do our part for the environment. I try to extend that into my business every chance I get. Every little bit really does help!
I am proud to say I am one of the only eco friendly wedding and portrait photographers in Australia and I am so excited to offer complete eco friendly products such as wedding albums, portrait albums, invites, save the dates and thank you's.
I have sourced some products from around the globe that are not only beautiful and unique but don't cost the earth.
To help you plan a green event please visit my friends page which lists other website links. I have sourced a lot of businesses that can help and hope to add more as I find them.
