Hey there!

I'm Sonja. Photographer, animal lover, night owl, dreamer, traveller.

I spent my early years living around Europe before settling in Australia when I was a teenager. I lived in Adelaide most of my life and a couple of years ago moved to Sydney. I am in love with this city, especially the beaches and the relaxed lifestyle. I used to be a lawyer before deciding to follow my dreams and become a full time photographer. Aside from weddings I also shoot travel and I've been lucky to have had this work featured in a couple of international magazines.

A few things about me 

  • I’m a massive animal lover
  • I’m extremely sentimental and I like to collect little mementos and trinkets from places I’ve been to
  • I was born in the former Yugoslavia and have also lived in Germany, the Netherlands and the Czech Republic, all before I turned 12!
  • I’m fluent in Croatian and I also used to speak Dutch as a child
  • My favourite meal is prawn linguine and my favourite dessert is tiramisu
  • Horror is my favourite movie genre
  • I love to travel and explore new places, one of my goals in life is to see as many corners of this beautiful world as I can
  • Fave destinations so far: the Amalfi Coast, Capri, Hvar and Port Douglas
  • Favourite Netflix show – Dark
  • I used to be a die-hard tennis fan when I was younger
  • I’m an extroverted introvert, I love people but I also enjoy my quiet time (I’m an INFP)
  • I have degrees in Law and Psychology
  • I’m most comfortable in a pair of jeans and a shirt – my wardrobe is basically all black and white, with a bit of blue and soft pink thrown in
  • I also shoot travel photography and have been published in magazines in Germany, the UK and Japan

My Style and Approach

I am inspired by the romantic, the timeless and the classic and you will often see these elements in my images. I am an observer by nature and I see beauty in unexpected places.

I approach weddings with a documentary eye, the more authentic the better. I focus on fleeting and unscripted moments and emotions and on all the details that make up the whole story of a wedding day.

My number one goal when documenting your wedding is for the images to take you back in time and make you and your loved ones re-live every moment.

 

I’m easy going and calm and this reflects how I photograph weddings – in a relaxed and non-obtrusive way. A lot of the time you won’t even know I’m there. I like to let things unfold naturally and I will never tell you what to do, pose you awkwardly or interfere with the flow of the day.

All I am interested in is capturing the real you and telling your story in a truthful and artistic way. I want you to relax and enjoy the time with your family and friends while I document everything around you.

Sydney and Destination Wedding Photographer

I'm based in Sydney but I photograph weddings all over NSW, including the Southern Highlands, Palm Beach, Hunter Valley, Blue Mountains and the South Coast. I also shoot interstate weddings and have so far shot in South Australia (in Adelaide, Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale and Adelaide Hills) and also in Melbourne and in Queensland. I am always happy (and very excited!) to travel and shoot in new places. I'd love to one day shoot a wedding in Port Douglas so if you're getting married there I'd love to chat to you.
