Tamborine Wedding Photographers
'Since having my children, I had always wanted to get a professional photo shoot done however the price was always something that turned me off. When my twins were born this year and knowing they would be my last, I looked into local photographers and was recommended to try Angie Petersen, from Desire to Inspire Photography. I was a bit worried about how the shoot would go, whether there would be sufficient time to take all the photos that we wanted, if it would be rushed and if the boys would handle the shoot itself.
Angie was so patient; she took the time to help me settle the boys and even helped me feed them during the shoot. Angie allowed sufficient time for the photo shoot itself and time to settle the boys into the shoot. Her attention to detail was evident in the way she took her photos and the way in which she prepared each different photo scene.
Having never had professional photos taken before, I was left feeling relaxed and I knew that the photos would come out beautifully. Angie gave me a sneak peak of the photos later that afternoon and I knew that it was all worth it.
There were 7 different packages to choose from and Angie even offered take home layby which was a great option. The packages ranged in price but I knew that the quality of the photos that we were being provided with were well worth the price. If I choose to photos done again in the future then I will definitely be going back to Angie. Quality over quantity everytime.'
Angie's advice and suggestions with backdrops, poses and sense of fun made the professional shoot an enjoyable experience. I was a complete novice and needed photos for business marketing and branding.
"The birth of one’s own child is among the most significant events that a person can hope to experience in their life. It involves those very special moments that mark the entry of a new life into the world. Angie has a rare talent to see those moments and capture them on camera. Her images are more than a chronicle of what happened; they arrest your attention because, somehow, they are filled with the deep emotion of those special moments.
During the birth of our twins, Megan and George, Angie managed to capture those wonderful, rare moments. Her creative talents extended to compiling images in multimedia formats – the compilation video of our birth story touches us every time we see it. As we were unable to travel to her studio, Angie visited our home to take newborn photos when the twins were twelve days old and she also took photos of our four year old daughter, Alice and family portraits.
We have never seen anyone put so much energy and patience into photography – it gave us a whole new insight into what photography is to a dedicated professional! The resulting photos were absolutely stunning, really incredible. Angie was a delight to work with too: she possesses a quiet, friendly and warm disposition that makes her very easy to get along with. She evidently has a real affinity for little babies and children as well – she certainly has patience by the bucket-load too! She was reliable on every occasion and she accommodated our needs without a murmur of complaint – when we were unable to travel to her studio she just brought the studio to us, and she has some lovely outfits and props!
We could not fault her work, far from it: she has that rare combination of technical skill and artistic talent that sets her work apart. Her passion is evident in the care she puts into everything she does, and the resulting products were all of an exceptional standard. We were delighted both with her work, and with her; so we can highly recommend Angie to you. If you are thinking about photography for your birth, or newborns, you could not wish for better. We intend to use Angie again for family portraits, in future, quite simply because her work is indeed inspirational and, when it really counts you need someone you can count on. Every time we look at our photos we count ourselves fortunate indeed to have had Angie there.

Just wanted to say another massive thanks to you for being there through out my pregnancy and capturing some amazing photos, of not just my pregnancy but also the birth & newborn shoots of my baby boy. I missed this all with my daughter as everyone got to caught up in the moment and taking pics was the last thing on our minds, I absolutely hate now not having a photographer there for her birth, as I have nothing to remember except the faded memories, and already as years have gone by they do slowly fade. The more I look at all the photographs you have captured of my pregnancy journey and the birth of my baby boy the more thankful I am that I had you there! The best thing is that you always made me feel so comfortable around you, which made it so much more comfortable to have you there at the birth! Now I will always have photos to look back on and remember not the the memories I hold that will slowly fade. I cannot thankyou enough for capturing one of the most beautiful, amazing moments in my life, I would not have had it any other way! xx

I nearly had a heart attack when I found out the boys couldn't help but wrangle horses in their very expensive suits- but it made for some unique and personal wedding photos!
You were patient and professional- and i am grateful you convinced us taking that last shot (of bridal party in the willow tree) was worth it, even though we were all desperate for some champagne- this turned out to be one of my favourite shots, and takes pride of place on our wall!!
You only get married once (or so we all hope) & it was worth every penny for the end result.”

"we hired Angie to capture the beauty of pregnancy, birth and our baby girl. She was very professional and we got a collection of photos that we will treasure at a great price compared to other photographers. Having a professional meant great photos and quality prints, something that is hard to capture yourself."

"WOW! What a great surprise we got after having our first professional family photo shoot in over 8 years. With busy lives it always seemed easier to ‘put off’ a family shoot for another year, but soon ‘next year’ turned in to 8 years, and with 2 growing boys we stopped and realized that the right time was now. As we all know all you have to do is blink and our babies are grown. The kids were hesitant to say the least but soon they were putty in Angie’s hands…she made us all feel so comfortable and at home we hardly noticed that she was taking photos at all. After a few laughs, and a lovely relaxed afternoon, we waited in anticipation to see the result of Angie’s hard work. There were so many gorgeous shots that the biggest problem was deciding which ones to choose to hang on our wall! If you are thinking about having a professional photo session, stop thinking about it and do it. Make the time to capture the memories of today, we did and we are so happy with the result. Thanks Angie, you really did capture our personalities!"

"I had a session with Angie with my four daughters who are extremely active. One has ADHD and Aspergers so getting photos of them is always a trial for me. Angie was fantastic with them, very patient. They enjoyed the experience and you could tell that Angie loved doing it. She took so many wonderful pictures I had trouble choosing. The prints and canvas that I purchased are amazing. People are still commenting how wonderful they look. I never hesitate in recommending her to friends."
"We got amazing pictures of our new little girl Isabel at 8 days old. Angie was so patient with her, even though she was cranky and pooped a couple of time on her props. It was a fun day and the photos are just stunning. I can't wait to get them on my walls :)."
Thanks Sarah & Greg
