Raconteur – noun “a relater; a storyteller

Candid Brisbane Wedding Photographer

With over 300 weddings and more than a decade of experience as a wedding photographer, I’ve had the privilege of documenting ceremonies from Byron Bay and the Gold Coast to the Sunshine Coast, as well as destinations like Adelaide, Newcastle, and the Greek Islands. Our passion for what we do shines through in every shot!

We specialise in capturing weddings for laid-back, affectionate couples who envision their special day as a blend of joy, relaxation, and spontaneity. Our focus is on creating an atmosphere where you can immerse yourself in the company of loved ones, rather than spending hours posing for photos. We prioritise genuine moments over staged shots, ensuring that every laugh, every hug, and every heartfelt exchange is authentically documented. You’re here to have a blast and celebrate with your closest friends and family. Ultimately, our goal is to craft images that vividly capture the authentic spirit of your wedding day, thus preserving memories that you’ll cherish and share with future generations.

Don’t like posing for photos, but you still want epic images? We’ve got you covered. Moreover, we have techniques to put even the most camera-shy individuals at ease in front of the lens. And if you love posing for photos, we’ve got you covered too!

Our approach is straightforward: embrace the day’s joy, savor every moment, express your emotions freely, let laughter ring out, and relish both the quiet moments of reflection and the exuberant ones filled with hugs and celebration. This allows us to authentically capture the essence of your wedding day.

Adam and Charlene here!

Meet the husband and wife duo behind Raconteur Photography!

We live in Brisbane with our 3 children, the oldest are twins, we have been married for over 20 years and we are best friends. Oh! and everyone calls Charlene ‘Charlie’ they always have.

Our family is the center of our world, and we love travelling together. When Adam isn’t capturing beautiful wedding moments, you’ll find us camping, fishing, enjoying the beach (with the occasional surf session for Adam), or socializing with friends over a delightful cheese platter and a glass or two of wine.

Nothing brings us more joy than exploring new destinations worldwide and collecting passport stamps.

The Experience


Yes, we do! Apart from shooting weddings near home here in Brisbane we also travel for Byron Bay weddings, Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast and Toowoomba Weddings . And further a field. So far we have had the absolute privilege of travelling to Newcastle to a private farm for an epic Tipi Wedding weekend, including a costume party the night before to flash dancing into a field. Twice to the Adelaide Hills for fun and relaxed wine filled weddings. All the way to the Greek Islands for a beautiful wedding overlooking the Aegean Sea. This included days chilling at the beach with guests, a tour of the local islands in a private yacht and day after bridal shoot just for the couple. 

If we are available we will be there!

You’ve decided on a particular location/ destination for your wedding for a reason. That’s why every wedding we document, is photographed as if we were tourists/guests at your wedding. Sometimes this includes not just the wedding day. This could be hanging with family and friends the day before by the pool, a family bbq or gathering the night before or a recovery session the day after. 

Your wedding photos will take you back to the whole weekend all the moments that make up your wedding destination as well as showcasing the location.

We don’t limit the number of photos we take and we don’t limit the number of photos we give you. It averages out to be around 100 images an hour.

We know you are excited about getting your photos back and that’s why we try to get them back to you as soon as possible. Usually around 4-6weeks, however we do offer a skip the queue service (depending on availability for an additional price).
