Lani Carter Photographer


Don’t you just love that feeling when you finally find your ‘thing’? That’s exactly how Lani Carter felt when she bought her first camera.

With a diploma of photography under her belt, Lani has been in business taking gorgeous images since 2010, something that she say’s has helped shape who she is today. Lani genuinely loves taking photos and cherishes the years that she’s been able to be living her dream job. In her own words, she get’s to document life and love! What could be better than that?!

Lani has taken photos everywhere from birthing suits in the middle of the night and capturing the miracle of new life, to traveling the globe and doing wedding photography in far away lands! Her journalistic approach and relaxed personality are some of her major strengths and help her to keep her images totally authentic. Her style is creative, swirled together with a ton of romance, perfect for the couple that are looking for images that classic but not too traditional and with Lani behind the camera, you’re guaranteed to receive beautiful, artistic photos that won’t date.

Lani’s enthusiasm and energy are what makes her stand out in a crowd. She’s the kind of photographer who bounces around with a huge smile on her face, constantly thankful to be invited into peoples most intimate moments and allowed to document them!

Be sure to come and meet Lani Carter in person at the next Sunshine Coast Wedding Fair! And visit her website or Facebook page to see more of her stunning work!



Thinking of having children at your wedding?

It may not be for some people but personally I love the idea of having children at weddings. They take great wedding photos, make adorable fashion statements and are awesome dance partners on the dance floor.

It really pays to make the day as special for them as it is for all other guests. I mean there’s something about happy children that makes the day all the more merrier.

I recently got married and took the big risk to have a petting zoo at my wedding. Was that a good idea? It was the best. thing. ever. Not only did the 15+ kids have a great time but it immediately set the scene for a fun filled reception.

Other great ideas coming on the scene are good old pinatas, having a crafts table, kite flying or decorating cupcakes that can double as dessert.

Check out these very pretty silver pinatas created by the talented Party Pony Pinatas

See, doesn’t these pictures make you want to join in the fun? Weddings really are so much more enjoyable with happy children around.

Love from your darling
