Rachael & MitchCentral Queensland has a country landscape that is so beautiful, so distinct, that we’re always finding ourselves lost in the beauty of the region.

Hi! I’m Carissa, a traveling wedding & elopement photographer. I also shoot intimate women’s & couples portraits –
Capturing the perfectly imperfect.
Carissa, the owner / photographer of Elk and Fir Photography is located in Sunshine Coast, Queensland and awarded ABIA’s QLD Wedding Photographer of 2016!
I am a lover of perfectly imperfect love and a chaser of light and yummy sun-flare. If I see something epic I will stop you in your tracks to get it. I like to sit back and document the real moments, capturing those fleeting moments that might not have even noticed.
I like to keep things relaxed when taking wedding portraits. I find swapping your heels for flats and grabbing an esky of beer and plenty of food keeps everyone happy!
I love to travel so if you have a dream wedding location hit me up ! You just never know what I can offer you!
Love Carissa xx

Kimberley & ShaneWe love an elopement around these parts and for Kimberley and Shane, there was something magic about how paired back, how minimalist their day was. In fact, for these two, their small guest list almost wasn’t invited at all. “We planned our wedding in one day once we got a date back from […]
Kimberley & ShaneThe moody moments in today’s beachside engagement are packed with beauty and intensity that really made us lose our breath. There is something magical about the seaside on a cold day, and for photographer Elk and Fir Photography, the day she met Kimberley and Shane to celebrate their new promise to each other, the seaside […]
Lana & LesterOne of our favourite stories to tell, is when a couple meets many years before they finally realise their connection and for Lana and Lester? It was the wee tender age of toddlers, at daycare where their paths first crossed. It wasn’t until they met at a pub where Lana was working and […]
