Frequently Asked Questions

Over the past 10 years, we have scouted all over south-east Queensland to find amazing backdrops for our photography shoots. The result is a short list of locations that meet the following criteria:

  1. Natural (no freshly mowed grass, or street signs in the background, for example)
  2. An attractive angle to the sun (it’s all about the light!)
  3. Private if possible.

To keep our locations as private as possible, we try to keep our locations exclusive for our clients only.

You can see our most popular locations in our Wardrobe Guide, which you can download above for free. 

A great question! Choice of clothing is actually very important when it comes to the overall look of your photographs. As such, we have put together a comprehensive list of clothing advice to help you decide what is best to wear – or to give you an excuse to go shopping!

Our Wardrobe Guide can be downloaded above for free. Take a look!

Absolutely! We allow a little extra time so we can photograph a variety of shots of the whole group, as well as individual family units, grandchildren, adult children with parents, cousins etc.


Cameron and Alana (owners of Sunlit Studios) are both 1 of 6 children. So, we are very accustomed to lots of children!

We have taken countless portraits of families with one or more children having special needs. Our strategy of having lots of fun during the shoot, instead of posing heavily, usually brings out the best in everyone.

Editing has two stages – Colour Correction and Retouching.

Colour Correction – this is performed on your photographs before your Appointment. By having the colours enhanced already, you’ll be able to make an informed decision on which expressions and moments you love the most for your Artwork.

Retouching and further enhancement – this stage is much more time and skill intensive. As such, we wait to see what photographs you choose for your Artwork, so we know which photographs to perform our premium skin retouching service on. This includes fixing things like double chins, bra straps, flyaway hairs, scars, tan lines, background distractions and any other requests you make to ensure we bring out the very best in you and your loved ones.

We take no shortcuts in the editing process and we know you are just going to love the results!

As a small, family owned and run business, we take great personal pride in our clients being 100% satisfied with their investment with Sunlit Studios.

Our commitment to our client’s satisfaction is evidenced by our reviews on Google and Facebook, which can be viewed here.

As such, if you are not 100% satisfied with the experience and photographs presented to you at your Design and Ordering Appointment, we will offer you, without hesitation, a full refund of the $400 Sunlit Experience fee.

Since our humble beginnings in 2010, we are still yet to receive a request for a refund.

Unfortunately, weather is something we can’t control. As our warm, colourful style of photography relies on at least a little bit of sunshine, we will always encourage you to reschedule your photography shoot to another, sunnier day.

As weather can change quickly and families often have hair and makeup booked in, we usually make the final decision the morning of the shoot as to whether we reschedule or not.

Rescheduling comes at no cost.

Absolutely! We accommodate interstate or overseas families in the following ways:

  1. We schedule the Shoot date AND a backup shoot date the next day in case of poor weather
  2. We provide an express editing service, so we can host you for your Design and Ordering appointment within 24 hours of your Shoot and before your holiday ends.
  3. World-wide shipping of your Artwork.

For a detailed price list of all products, simply reach out!  Book a time to chat with our friendly team by clicking here.

You can also see our most common Artwork options, our inclusions and upgrade options above. 

You don’t need to – all artwork purchased includes a watermarked ‘Social Media’ digital photograph of your chosen artwork photographs for free!

Included in the initial investment is Ten 8×12 High Resoultion Digital Photographs.

We also include the entire Digital Collection of 30+ photographs for free with all Artwork orders over $2,990, inclusive of our Premium Retouching Service.

Most families qualify to receive this simply by investing in any of our larger Masterpiece Wall Collections.

What Clients Say

"Sunlit studios were amazing from first consultation to handover day of our finished prints. Cameron and the team were amazing and made sure they captured every important moment during and after our ceremony. We wanted to make sure our photographer was top quality as the day goes so quickly and all that’s left is the photos, and we seriously couldn’t have chosen better. They had scoped out the area before the wedding and knew every spot to get the perfect photo using the sunlight to perfection. They were enjoyable and fun to have around which is super important as the photo taking process after the ceremony can be quite tiring and boring. The finished photos are stunning and worth every penny and the video is extremely well put together and edited. If anybody wants to see some firsthand proof of their work before you commit feel free to contact me, my wife and myself are that impressed we are more than happy to vouch for Sunlit. 10/10 would 100% recommend to people who are thinking about booking a cheap lower quality photographer, we are so thankful we have these beautiful photos as memories. "

James Hopkins

"Sunlit Studios set themselves apart from other photographers by offering an ‘experience’, and from our engagement and wedding shoots with Sunlit I can tell you that the experience is exceptional. Their approach to each and every client is so personalised. They have a way of knowing what will best suit each individual situation to get the most incredible results out of the day and the artwork. They also have a very easy going and unobtrusive way of conducting their shoots, which made it so comfortable but also a lot of fun for my husband and I. On our wedding day there was no one else that we would have wanted there to preserve those memories and our artworks speak for themselves. "

Shanna Bell

"Fantastic! By far the most professional and kindest photographers around. They turn your photos into the most magical creations. They make you feel comfortable and at ease and it's like they aren't even there. They give you direction when you need it but aim to photograph you in a natural looking state. All of my photos were amazing and they all looked natural and not forced. The whole experience was very enjoyable. All our photos were amazing during our engagement photo shoot and that's why we have also booked them for our wedding. For every photo opportunity we will now be calling Sunlit Studios to document the occasion because I know they will do a great job. If I could give them a million star rating I would. I can't rate them highly enough. "

Tiffany Wagner

"I can never imagine Sunlit studios getting anything less than 5 stars. These guys are simply the best! After spending many weeks searching for the perfect photographer I know I had made the right choice. Sunlit studios photographs stood out well above the rest. They had a certain elegance and glow that I could not see in anyone else's work. The whole experience from start to finish and everything in between was perfect. The canvasses will hang proudly on our walls, the album will be a great focal point when guests are around or when we want to remember the details of our special day. I could go on & on about how great these guys are, but I think you get the point. If you’re thinking about using Sunlit Studios to make some treasured memories - do it! Thank you so much to the whole Sunlit Studios team."

Lauren Wylie

"On behalf of Steve and myself we just wanted to say- Thankyou Cameron & Alana (and Chloe!) Thanks for traveling across the country, the midnight Skype chats and for giving 100% ...but most of all for giving us our moments exactly how they were. In every heartbeat, life was paused and it was so incredibly perfect..."

Megan Nelson

“I have been a huge fan of Sunlit Studios Photography for many years and they did not disappoint! We had the most beautiful engagement and wedding photos taken - the overcast day didn't have an impact on the photos whatsoever - our wedding photos get so many compliments and our wedding album is amazing and such high quality. Cameron and the team are so professional and knowledgeable, and so easy and lovely to work with. I highly, highly recommend Sunlit Studios. ”
