Capturing beautiful portraits while you are looking a million dollars in your formal attire makes a lot of sense! School Formal Photos captured by our studio will be appreciated for generations. Enjoy personalized attention in a relaxed environment close to your formal venue.

But don’t they get photos taken at the formal?

Yes indeed, most school employ a photographer to set up a temporary studio at the formal. However, it is a one size fits all arrangement and the environment can be a little busy and intimidating with so many people looking on while you are being photographed. The service we provide is also different in that we are happy for you to bring the entire family along for a photo or two before featuring the graduating student and their partner.


Gold Coast School Formal Photos


Young people love the fashion edge and sense of the artistic that I bring to their customized school formal portrait shoot. Bringing nearly a decade and a half of experience to the school formal photo shoot means that students are given clear and simple tips to ensure that they look like they could rock a magazine cover!

Gold Coast school formal photos can be taken in a broad cross section of locations, industrial estates for an edgy feel, the ocean or in one of the many gorgeous parks. Additional ‘add-ons’ to our standard Gold Coast School Formal Photos Package can include documenting hair and makeup preparation and arrival at the venue.




In these images, Iris was wearing a gorgeous gown designed by Aidan Mattox. Her hair and makeup preparation was conducted by the amazing Maria Rivera Makeup and Hair Artistry. Iris and Nick arrived at their formal in a classic 1955 Chevy.
