We got Nicola to do a newborn session and some family photos- we honestly couldn't be any happier with how they turned out.
Such special memories that we will always cherish. Nicola was very professional but also made us feel extremely comfortable and at ease while taking our pictures. She was also very patient with out little 2 year old who was running around like crazy.
I would highly recommend Nicola and can't wait to book her again in the future, Candice Jackson
I would 1000% recommend Nicola for all your photographer needs. Nicola did our Maternity shoot and we were absolutely blown away by her eye for detail and all round quality of her work. We then had her do our newborn shoot for our son and her work is nothing but AMAZING! We have had so many lovely comments about our pictures and we are hoping that she’s available to do our wedding pics too. Absolutely outstanding work and I can pick no faults with anything. She provided the dresses for the maternity shoot and all the props for our sons newborn shoot and even came to our house to do the newborn shoot. She goes above and beyond and we just adore seeing her friendly face every time we get shoots done, she’s a beautiful woman inside and out Thank you again Nicola for everything you have done for us! Emah & Isi
Nicola is truly such a gem! When I found her page years ago I always said “I want her to photograph my future newborn” and she did recently. Her energy was so relaxing and she was so patient/gentle with our newborn. She was here until she got all the shots she wanted (which is a lot longer then I thought she’d be here, what a blessing as it means we got the gorgeous content she had visioned). She was so open with communication when booking and when in our home shooting. We had a request with getting a particular shot (including a cultural piece that is sentimental to our family) and she was so respectful and went out of her way to take shots with this item even though it wasn’t part of her props. The price for the quality content she provides is out of this world. The gallery will be forever cherished.
Thank you Nicola! 100/10 and will be booking you again in the future! Carly
Nicola you are an absolute godsend. When I contacted you for my maternity shoot, everyone was booked out, including yourself. But you made yourself available to do my shoot, which turned out so beautiful! Once our son was born, we booked you in for a newborn session which was absolutely magical. Thank you for everything you have done for my family Nicola. You’re an absolute blessing and I cannot wait to do more sessions with you in the future. I’ll be recommending you to everyone I know!! Cloe
Nicola is truly one of a kind and amazing at what she does. We had a newborn/family shoot done and found her to be so relaxed, easy going and patient. She was very easy to talk to and let me feed my newborn son as often and whenever necessary. We did not feel rushed at all and felt very comfortable with Nicola from the moment she stepped foot in our door. She brought a beautiful array of props to choose from and we even got a sneak peek the same evening of our photos which was so lovely. Within less than a week the remainder of our photos came through and we are so happy with them all. I would highly recommend Nicola and am so Grateful for the photos she captured and the memories we now have to cherish always. Thank you Nicola. Kristen
Nicola was just amazing when she did our newborn photographs. She was professional and considerate and so caring with our new bundle of joy (honestly she had the best sleep when Nicola was taking her photos!). Nicola even touched base throughout my pregnancy just to see how I was doing. The final pictures were incredible, better than I could have imagined. We’ve already booked Nicola for Xmas photos and will absolutely be booking her in the future to capture more special moments. Sarah
Absolutely amazing experience from booking right through to receiving our photos. I had both maternity and newborn photos done with Nicola and I could not be happier with how they turned out. Nicola was so amazing and made you feel comfortable immediately. The talent shines through as she still managed to produce amazing photos of the whole family despite a strong willed toddler who would refuse any photos. I would recommend Nicola to anyone, and am so excited to get more photos done again at the end of the year. Shannon
I won a family photo shoot with Nicola and cannot express my gratitude enough! Nicola was so accomodating with our dogs and my poor health, making the photo shoot enjoyable and easy. Nicola is the utmost professional and a beautiful person inside and out. I cannot recommend her enough and am thrilled with the images she has taken. We now have a new family photo (first in 12years) for Christmas and a celebration of my mother's good health after many years of struggles and near death experiences. Although I am still unwell myself, the beautiful images have been very uplifting and brought our family together. Thank you so much Nicola! You are a truly gifted photographer and a beautiful, compassionate and kind person. My family are so grateful and my mother is showing everyone the pictures and recommending you to everyone she knows as am I �
Nicola is absolutely amazing! She was so patient with my son for his newborn shoot. He spent most of the time unsettled and she had the special touch and managed to keep him calm and captured some of the most amazing photos I have ever seen. She went above and beyond for us. We have also booked Nicola for our wedding and we just can't wait for her to capture another amazing day.
Nicola.. what can I say! This woman is actually amazing!!! My husband and I are not photo people! We hate getting our pictures taken and the thought of having to be photographed on our wedding day was really something we weren’t overly looking forward to! We let Nicola know this and we told her that we really wanted to keep the photos quick! In saying this Nicola knew exactly how to get our dream photos with what felt like no effort on our behalf! We sat and posed for a couple but most of our pictures were really just us being us! Very natural and lots of fun! Most photos are of my husband and I just talking quietly to each other about our day so far while Nicola took pictures! And the result was more then we could have even imagined! Nicola captured our day beautifully! She was so easy to work with and gave us direction when we needed it! We are obsessed with our photos and even said to each other that we only needed ONE good one and we would be happy but we have soo many wonderful pictures we can not even decide yet what ones to frame and this is only from our sneak peaks! Amazing � I would highly recommended this woman and can not wait to find an excuse to use her again! Thanks Nicola!
My partner and I had the wonderful experience of Nicola brander doing our maternity and new born shoot Nicola was extremely professional,kind and easy going she also made the photo shoots fun we also received the photos 2 days after the photo shoot talk about customer service (A+) and not to mention the photos we had received more then exceeded our expectations I highly recommend Nicola brander for all your photo shoot needs this will not be the last time we use you Nicola thank you.
Where do I even begin?! I am so so in love with every single one of my wedding photos! Nicola captured our wedding day in a way I couldn’t have even dreamt of! She was so relaxed, but so professional with every last detail! Both my husband and I aren’t ‘camera’ people but we just felt so at ease whilst Nic captured us in our own little love bubble! The final photos were just stunning and we had them within a month! I won’t be using anyone else for any photography needs that’s for sure!
Nicola, is hands down the best photographer. With her fun sense of humour and gorgeous personality, she made our special day so much more fun and stress free. She knows exactly what she is doing and she does a bloody excellent job. Her talent is out of this world and I know anyone who has the pleasure in booking Nicola for a shoot will be blown away at just how amazing she is at what she does. She made it so fun for my husband and I. She was super patient with my children also. They didn’t always want to smile for photos, but she was patient enough to make jokes and do funny things to get them to laugh. Nicola you are with out a doubt my new favourite person and new photographer for all our future family shoots.
I would like to say thankyou to Nicola for her superb customer service and photos she took of us a few weeks ago. Time was not on our side on the Sunday afternoon as massive storms rolled in around us but we were still able to get some great shots of the kids for xmas and some beautiful family snaps on the beach as well. We had edited sneakpeeks within hours of our session and our usb landed express posted in our mailbox 3 days later. Wow! Thankyou again. We will definitely be recomending you to our family and friends!
Wow!from first contact to receiving our images,we have been nothing but massively impressed with the level of professionalism, down-to-earth thoughtfulness, helpfulness and positivity. You have captured such a precious moment in our lives, with such touching, natural and beautiful images. We love our pregnancy photos and we will definitely arrange for another session once baby arrives!we thank you so much for our session and our images!
Such an amazing experience with Nicola ��� so patient and quick to let us see sneak peeks and also express post our usb so that we recieved our photos within 2 days of having our photoshoot, i would 100% recommend Nicola and will continue to do our family shoots with her throughout the years ♡♡ thanks so much lovely we really appreciate your kindness xx
I can not even find the words to explain how happy I am with Nicola Brander Photography, we had a paint session and it was so much fun. I wanted real life photos not all of the "posing" business, so I could use these photos to remember how full of life my boys really are.. Would definitely recommend Nicola any day of the week. THANK YOU so much Nicola will be back when i can convince hubby for some more photos hehe :)
Thank you so much Nicola for taking our family photos. You are very professional and extremely good at what you do.
Seeing our sneak peak photos only a few hours after our shoot was exciting, but to receive our photos within a few days was amazing. Thank you, thank you so very much, I can't wait to get photos printed and hang them around the house.
We will be back for photos in the future
I'd love to give a huge thanks to Nicola for travelling all the way to Mt Tamborine to photograph my wedding. She was very professional and really knew where the best places to get her shots. As I didn't really know what I wanted I left it all in her hands and she definitely didn't let me down. My box and USB stick were done beautifully and were delivered promptly. I was very impressed by the photos. I would definitely recommend her.
Nicola - From start to finish, my experience with you was wonderful. Thank you so much for capturing some beautiful photos of my precious children - even though for most of the shoot they were not acting so precious... You were patient, creative, professional and gave me exactly what I wanted A special memory of my children that I will have for a lifetime!! Thankyou again!
Nicola was so professional and patient with our newborn Madelyn. She needed feeds throughout to settle, and Nicola was so kind and waited each time. Our photos were amazing, I cannot believe the quality. Nicola sent the images the next week, and I couldn't be happier. I have recommended Nicola Brander Photography to all my friends and family, and will definitely get more family photos in the future. Thanks so much!
It was such a great pleasure to work with Nicola. From the get go she was professional and friendly and got along so well with our family and friends it wasn't hard at all to smile for our photographs. Our wedding day was perfect and Nicola went to great lengths to get the photos we wanted (even climbing on a 4wd). We would recommend Nicola to anyone that wants their special day captured she is one of a kind.
Bec & Glenn July 2014
We met up with Nicola for a couples shoot in June, and could not be happier with how our session went. Nicola was so awesome with contact leading up to the session, and so easy to deal with and then meeting was great, you made us feel at ease Nicola, once we got over the initial awkwardness, since we had never had a proper shoot before :-) We love how quick you got the photos back to us, and that you allowed us to have input into the session too, allowing us to get a particular photo that we have been taking for 12 years together so far :-) So a massive thank you for your efforts and we cannot wait to use you again in the future, and we certainly have been recommending you around!
Thank you Nicola for such amazing photos of the kids and their model shoot. For not doing this type of photography before you were an absolute natural and pleasure to deal with you. Will definitely be using you for any more photos we need in the future. Your amazing !!
The most beautiful and special day of my life was when I got to marry the love of my life Alex Herd. Our photographer Nicola Brander helped us capture our special day and we couldn't be more happier with the photos she has given us. There are so many beautiful photos that bring back cherished memories of our day. We were very happy with the job Nicola did for us and we would recommend her in a heart beat. She made our day stressfree, relaxing and kept it casual just the way we wanted it. If anyone is after or knows someone who is after a photographer for any special occasion or just a photo shoot we recommend Nicola and hope you are as satisfied as we are.
Katie and Alex Herd
My husband and I have previously viewed Nicola’s handiwork through her Facebook page and we’ve always been amazed at her ability to creatively photograph beautiful landscapes, sunrises, sunsets and moments in time. Therefore, there was no doubt in our mind that Nicola would be our photographer of choice when it came time for us to tie the knot. For our wedding we opted for an extremely casual alternative to the norm. We wanted to have the bulk of the ‘staged’ photos over before our guests arrived and we wanted our photographer to capture mostly candid shots of our family and friends enjoying the afternoon’s ceremony and festivities. Nicola has achieved great results capturing lovely candid shots as requested. I quite literally cannot stop looking at the photographs that she’s taken! Also, Nicola was punctual, professional and enthusiastic, despite the extremely hot conditions that she was faced to work in, and the turnaround time in receiving our photos was swift (but probably would’ve been even quicker, had we not been away on our honeymoon!). We are more than happy to recommend Nicola as a photographer for any occasion as she was affordable and happy to comply with our requests. We wish you all the best Nicola for your future, and look forward to seeing even more beautiful photographs!
Jeremy & Heather O’Mara
After coming across Nicola's page I decided to get some family photos done. Nicola was fantasic with our children even when they didn't want to cooperate. We had a great afternoon (even with the rain). She made it so relaxing and fun. Not only is her work affordable but it is amazing. I can not express how happy I am with our photos. The turn around on our photos was amazing also. Most photographers take weeks, sometimes months to get your edited pictures back to you but Nicola had our photos completed and in the mail to us the next day. Am so very thankful for the wonderful professional job Nicola has done and will definitly use her again in the future.
Jamey and Derek Paul
All i can say is Nicola Brander is awesome. she has been taking photos for me since my 4 yr old was a baby. and she has now taking photos of my new born for me (5 weeks old) and next yr she is doing my engagement shoot and i have booked her in for my wedding in Aug 2014. when she took my daughters photos it was on a Sunday she then had them all ready on a USB edited and in the mail 2 days later. I can not recommend Nicola higher enough, she is the best at what she does.
We decided to book Nicola as our wedding photographer after my sister had Nicola take some beautiful shots of her children on the beach. These photos were natural and beautiful so we decided to have Nicola shoot our wedding. My husband and I are so pleased with the photos Nicola took. They are absolutely stunning and yet so natural that they really do represent beautiful memories from our day. You can really see Nicola’s love of and skill with nature photography, she perfectly captured the beauty of our natural outdoor venue. We have had one of Nicola’s beautiful photos blown up onto a large canvas and it looks stunning. Nicola’s help was invaluable with putting together our photo album, the composition is perfect and tells a beautiful story of our whole day, even with party photos from the beginning of the reception which I didn’t even think of! I cannot recommend Nicola highly enough. Her good nature, friendly attitude, professionalism and creativity mean that she was a welcome but unobtrusive guest at our wedding. I am so grateful to Nicola for providing us with wonderful memories of our wonderful day.
Jessica and Sushil Kumar
Thanks Nicola for exceeding my expectations - you were really great with the kids and very patient at all times. Photographing 5 kids under 5 would be a tough gig but you handled it beautifully and the photos are amazing . Not to mention less then a 24 hour period for us to receive our completed disk.
Just wanna say a huge thank you to Nicola on the wonderful photo shoot she did on Alicia our newborn. We had ideas and she listened and did what we asked. Turned up on time. Took wonderful photos. Got them in the mail 3 days after getting the photos done. Can not wait till she does our engagement shoot next year and take photos at our wedding in 2015. Recommend to all my friends and family
Amanda & Luke
I cannot thank Nicola enough for the amazing photos she took of my girls. She has a very artistic eye and captured their youthful innocence beautifully. Her warm demeanor put my girls at ease very quickly and Nicola made them feel like it was just another fun afternoon at the park. She was incredibly patient with them and made the whole afternoon very enjoyable. These photos will be cherished by us all forever. Thanks again Nicola.
Nicola has done an amazing job capturing some beautiful images of the new addition to our family.
Our gorgeous little girl was only 2 weeks old and wasn't always so willing to have her photo taken but Nicola was patient, friendly and spent a lot of time waiting until she settled down, but it was definitely worth the wait because the photos are fantastic!
One of the things we really appreciated about the photo shoot was Nicola came to our home which made things easier, especially with a baby. It helped us feel more comfortable and she took the time to make sure she got the right shots so we didn't feel rushed.
We will definitely be calling Nicola to take more beautiful family photos in the future.
Thanks to Nicola we have some precious moments we can treasure forever.
Sheree and Chris Echlin
Nicola did a fantastic job capturing the essence of what we wanted our wedding day to be ... fun, intimate and relaxed. The photos are absolutely beautiful and showcase Nicola's talent, attention to detail and ability to capture the moment in a perfectly structured way that captures the best light, colour and balance against a backdrop of so many gorgeous settings, which she has a real skill in spotting. In addition to her photographic talent, Nicola was an absolute pleasure to deal with and we enjoyed her relaxed, professional style. Thank you for giving us such wonderful, visual memories of our special day.
Anita & Kyle
I just wanted to say a massive thank you to Nicola for the amazing experience she gave me and my family of having the opportunity to be able to have some great pictures taken of us. I wanted some recent nice photos of my son and partner to be able to put up in our first home. It takes alot to get nice pictures of my boys and Nicola has been able to capture exactly what I wanted. Nicola put up with my son being a pain and has taken some amazing photos that make him look like a gem! Nicola was very flexible when we had to move our photoshoot. The pictures arrived within a week of the photo shoot and now I have some up in our home. Thank you so much Nicola. It was a pleasure and I will recommend your service to all.
Jemima and Dane
I would really like to thank you for the amazing pictures of Tripp and the time u put in to get them I know he didn't make it easy for you and made you work for the pictures, but with your loving calm touch u got the better of him u truly are an amazing gifted woman and my recommendation could not be any more higher for you. Keep up the amazing work and ill be seeing you again real soon for our family shoot
My husband and I were wanting some professional photos of our children taken when I stumbled across some photos Nicola had shared on Facebook. As soon as I saw them I knew I had to get Nicola to capture our gorgeous kids! I made the appointment with Nicola and she was so patient with our cheeky little cherubs that weren't at all co-operating and so how managed to capture some truly beautiful pictures of our precious (cheeky) kids. Nicola even suggested we jump in some pictures too and I'm so glad we did as we now also have some precious family photos to remember the day as well. Nicola was very professional but also very relaxed and made us feel at ease and made the whole experience fun. I would Highly recommend Nicola for any occasion.
This is just a note to say how impressed I am with Nicola Brander. Not only has she got incredible talent as a photographer but she also provides first-class service to follow it up! I live in North Queensland and recently purchased one of her beautiful prints - within just a few days of purchase I received the print in the mail completely secure and in top condition as promised. From first enquiry through to delivery, Nicola ensured top service – all my questions were answered swiftly and the quality of the product was guaranteed, she didn’t miss a thing! There were no hassles & no delays, just fast and professional service. I would happily recommend this wonderful photographer to anyone whether it be to purchase prints or to book a photo shoot and I will certainly be seeking her services again in the future.
I would just like to say thank you to nicola, from the moment I asked about purchasing prints to this point in time she has always been great. As far as purchasing I had a few requests that she was able to meet with no hassles at all. I love the landscape prints I recieved and am looking forward to having more on my walls in the future. She is one of very few people that I would and have happily recommended for prints and wedding, family and portrait shoots. I can honestly say she is one very understanding and wonderful photographer, looking forward to more business with you in the future nicola.
We've had our family photos done twice by Nicola now and both times we've been blown away by both the quality of photos and professionalism Nicola has shown while shooting us. She is patient with the kids, has travelled over 2 hours to take photos where we requested, been helpful in posing us and didn't rush us at all. We also received our disc of photos 3 days after our shoot, with all images edited and even a video! I definitely would recommend Nicola as a photographer and we will be using her again when we are due for another set!
Emma & Rick Hopkins
Wedding on the 27th May 2013, Kings Beach
Thank you so very much for the fantastic job you did on our wedding photos.
A wedding day is one of the most important milestones in a person’s life and after meeting you, we knew that we had found the perfect person to capture this most special day and we were right!
Who would have thought, that we would be eating breakfast for the first time as husband and wife, previewing the most magnificent photos from our wedding, which was only the day before. It was such a special moment, that we will treasure always.
You were so much fun to work with and made us feel so comfortable. We can’t wait to come back to see you for our many family portraits in the future.
All the best,
Tim, Jo and Ryker
Our wedding last year in May was the best day in our lives. But what makes it more special is that Nicola went above and beyond the call of photographer duty and has captured moments that we never would have remembered without the proof. A sneaky kiss here, a playful laugh there, and Nicola captured them all. We were more than pleased with her professionalism and commitment to our special day. Honoured or blessed to have her as our photographer are probably more appropriate words. I would gladly recommend her to anyone for any occasion. You not only get a great album of memories, but the piece of mind, professionalism, and quality of service speaks for itself.
Tegan and Jimmy
Just wanted to say a huge thank you for the service that you provided us with on our wedding day. You were enthusiastic from the moment we called you, and very flexible to suit our day, our wants and our needs including juggling a 1 year old. It was 5 star services with even a meeting at my home to go through the event and photos that we wanted. On the day you captured the moment and emotion in all the photos, they are priceless and the most perfect memory. You made the photos fun which everyone enjoyed. Also the very fast turnaround in photos and video, we can’t wait to see the album. Once again thank you for capturing the one of most wonderful day of our lives, the photos are perfect, and we will use you again.
Loved working with you,
Jess & Shane Bourke
Nicola was the photographer for our wedding last month, we absolutely love the photos they are really beautiful and very professional!! She made our morning so much fun and really knew what she was doing. Now we have fantastic memories of our big day to last a lifetime! :-) I would recommend Nicola to anyone. A huge thanks from Both Josh and myself
Emma and Josh Rogers.
Would just like to say a few quick things. It was a ball doing the photo shoot with you. You made my partner and I comfortable. Always having laugh with us. The photos turned out great and got them back quickly. Loving ya work. Hope to do more soon.

Nicola Brander has been my personal photographer for the past three (3) years and the official photographer for my program 'I Roll With Dave’ . The I Roll With Dave program is a mentoring program that specialises in self confidence workshops and keynote presentations for high school students, at risk teens and long term unemployed youth.
Nicola's role was to come and photograph my students after we had completed a intensive deportment and grooming workshop whereby our students where taken out and purchased new interview clothes and had haircuts.
Nicola is a credit to the community for her volunteer work with my program in helping my students to re build there confidence and the image of the person they want to be. I have first hand witnessed some of my students be bought to tears after Nicola has photographed them and presented them with there after photo
Besides the above Nicola has been my personal photographer when I have been on speaking tours in Queensland. Nicola's photographs have been used in my website, brochures and display content. I highly recommend Nicola for any photography job regardless of industry and look forward to seeing Nicola Brander Photography become a massive success.

Yesterday I had the privelage of watching Nicola in action. Taking images of my family and I. What an experience! I first saw Nicolas amazing Pictures on Fb and found them all breath taking. So I was very excited about yesterdays venture of portraits on the beach. I would like to thankyou for making the experience utterly enjoyable for each of us and your patience and professionalism with children and of course ourselves was incredible. The cost was minimul for those once in a lifetime memories and we will be doing them every 3 to 6 months without a doubt. ...
Within an hour of the shoot pictures were up on face book so my husband and I could share them with our fathers on their special day that was priceless to me so thankyou. I highly recommend Nicola to anyone and everyone who wants the most outstanding service for the most outstanding price. SO SO SO SO SO happy!!!!! Cant wait till next time!!!
- Cherie Herd, Bribie Island
For those of you considering booking Nicola for a photo shoot, don't hesitate. We had a wonderful afternoon and Nicola spent plenty of time with us making sure we got the photos we wanted. It was real value for money. Love the sneak peak photos she posted and looking forward to seeing the rest. Make sure you take time out to capture irreplaceable memories! Thanks again Nicola!
- Melinda Hesse
I just want to share a huge public thank you on behalf of myself & my new husband, to Nicola Brander for such a terrific job done photographing our wedding.
The reasons we chose Nicola in the begining:
Cost- anyone planning a wedding knows that when you have a budget, price is a huge factor. In such a competitive industry, Nicola stood out as great value for money!
Talent- after seeing a lot of her landscape work (even before seeing any wedding shots) i knew this girl had talent! Flexibilty- not having a definate plan to our day when booking with Nicola, she assured me that she would be there whenever, wherever throughout the course of the event. This is great as things dont always go to plan, as in our case, but we didnt miss out on any photo ops because she was always there.
The reasons why we will recommend & use Nicola again:
Professional- Nicola manages to capture amazing photographs but does not make them look or feel artificial. She creates a comfortable but professional environment.She also went out of her way to make sure she met with me to discuss ideas & even came to rehearsals!
Quality- the proof of a job well done is in the pictures...and we could not be more happy with the end result of our photos. Receiving all our images on disc, perfectly edited is just the icing on the cake!
A wedding is a once in a lifetime event & having Nicola with us meant we had every single precious moment captured & i truely appreciate the time & effort Nicola put in to making our day complete. ♥
Thank you again,
-Mr & Mrs Patrick
"We had family photos taken by Nicola and with two young girls and a baby it can be difficult to get them to cooperate. Nicola was extremely patient, great with the kids and took many beautiful shots. We had no idea about what would make a good photo however Nicola came up with some simple yet fantastic ideas. I've had professional photos done in the past with others where you pay an amount for the photo shoot which includes a small number of photos and then when you want the disc with the pictures it costs and arm and a leg. Nicola includes the disc of photos in the price! We are extremely happy with our family photos and will be booking Nicola again"
- Melanie and Brendan Brain, Sunshine Coast.
"I contacted Nicola re our family photo shoot - and warned her 7 people of all ages was what she to deal with.. - Not a problem she said And it wasnt! We requested a casual, fast no fuss, relaxed shoot with a list of family combinations - Not a problem she said. And it wasnt! All in all, we got everything we had hoped for with the addition of Nicola's professional tips - we are really happy with the whole set of family images and so happy with the number of images provided - THE NEXT DAY!!! - how good is that!!"
- Kathy Blake, Sunshine Coast
