More about me


Em here, I'm a natural light photographer based in North Brisbane with a passion for creating photographs that make you look back at and smile. I am here to capture your weddings and special events and tell your story your way. I'm all about ensuring my couple have a stress-free experience and making solid connections with my couples, besides, I will be the third wheel for most of the day and its important we get along!

Booking with Maple and Ochre is not just booking a photo shoot - it’s booking an experience. Em celebrated our love and engagement and wedding just like family would.
As a queer couple, we felt comfortable, safe and respected. The whole process was so positive - from the lead up, to the day and seeing the photos come through.
Em has a vision and really is an artist. If you’re on the look out for great photos - look no further.

Seriously could not recommend Em enough! She made the most beautiful wedding film for us that we will treasure forever . She is so kind and warm - the kind of person you feel comfortable around straight away! Anyone would be so so lucky to have her apart of their wedding day.

Maple and Ochre were the perfect wedding photographers. From the initial meet right until we got our final photos Emilija was professional, informative and had high attention to detail! She had so many great ideas and made the process fun and comfortable for us. Thanks for capturing our wedding, we love the quality of the photos. Jacinta and I highly recommend Maple and Ochre for all photography and can knowingly say they’re the best in the business.
