My name is Ingrid, I am a Brisbane based freelance photographer. I specialise in wedding, documentary, commercial, fashion and art photography.
Photography has always been a passion of mine; from a very young age I was running around taking photos of anything and everything. I grew up in a creative household, my mother an artist and my father an art/manual arts teacher, who both loved the art of photography as well.
In my early 20's I decided to study photography at Griffith University. The Bachelor of Photography pointed me in the right direction, where I could turn my passion/hobby into a career. The past 5 years documenting clients weddings and memories have been the most fulfilling and happiest years of my life. I absolutely love my job!
What Weddings mean to me!
The first wedding I ever attended was my cousins wedding in 1994, I was 5 years old. I remember this day clearly, I was so envious of the bride as she walked down the isle. From that day onward all I wanted to do was get married, I would play dress ups in my sisters clothing and steal her lipstick, she still brings it up to this day.
I feel so blessed to working in the wedding industry and I am extremely lucky to be doing what I love. Each and every wedding that I have documented has been a different experience, and they are all so unique from each other. It makes me extremely happy that I get to document my clients big day and they get to keep those memories forever.
On October 13th 2018, I finally got to have my time as a bride. As you can see in the image, it was a very wet and muddy wedding, but it was the most magical day of my life. The day seems a little blurry now, but I will cherish these photos forever.

Ingrid, you are super star - you captured our wedding in the most authentic, natural photos and I couldn’t be more grateful! You were so easy to work with and the candid nature of our photos is everything that I hoped they would be. The photos have turned out beautifully - I want to cry every time I look through them because they bring back the most amazing memories of our dream day. I can not recommend you highly enough. A million times over, thank you!

Ingrid, you were incredible, exactly what we wanted for our wedding day. Young, vibrant, easy to work with and just down right lovely. We received our photos so soon after our wedding and spent hours laughing and crying over the beautiful candid moments that you caught for us. Thanks for everything!

Our photos are absolutely amazing, Ingrid truly has an incredible way of capturing the right moments and particularly has a very natural and unique approach when taking candid moments. From the moment we met Ingrid in person at our engagement shoot we felt completely comfortable. I',m so happy we went with my sisters suggestion of having Ingrid shoot out day. Thanks so much for being apart of our day, we love each and every photo taken x

Ingrid Coles Photography did such an amazing job at our wedding! Ingrid met us a few months prior to the wedding on location, to discuss what we were after and find some great photo locations. This made us feel really confident we were going to get the best photos possible! The results couldn't have been better! Ingrid helped us stay relaxed on wedding day and took incredible photos of the entire day. Ingrid is super talented and our photos are perfect!
We would recommend Ingrid to everyone (and have already recommended her to a few friends)!
Thanks so much Ingrid!
Matt and Seini.
