Congratulations on your Engagement! My name is Helen and I’ve been the owner of Helen McConnell Photography for over 12 years. During this time, my team and I have had the privilege of working with hundreds of couples on one of the most significant days of their lives, their Wedding Day. We’ve learnt that it’s just as important to capture the quiet magical moments, as it is the showstoppers, and to document the intimacy of the day and special happenings for which no one can plan. You may be surprised at how quickly your wedding day passes, that’s why it’s so important to hire professionals who really know what they’re doing. We’ve seen just about everything in all our years of experience so you don’t have to worry about a thing! Whether you’re shy and reserved or outgoing and social, we have lots of ways to help you relax in front of the camera, and during your ceremony, you’ll hardly notice we’re there, capturing all the candid moments as they’re happening.
Vintage, classic, timeless, elegant, quirky or epic....we want to hear about your dreams and what’s important to you, so we can focus on all the moments of your day while you relax and have fun, laugh, kiss and party!
Whether your wedding is in Brisbane, the Gold Coast or the Sunshine Coast, we will be there with you every step of the way; from working out a timeline, ensuring the day runs smoothly and being prepared on the day for the unexpected. We want your Wedding Day experience to be perfect!
Happy planning and I can’t wait to chat about your Wedding Day!MAKE AN ENQUIRY VIEW THE GALLERY
“Helen McConnell Photography is the best photography we have seen. Helen and Mark work so well as a team and their new member to the team, Marty, is also terrific. They have such great ideas for photos and make everything seem so easy. Our photos are just perfect and there is no other way to describe them. Perfection comes so naturally for Helen. Her work is at such a high level, we could ask for no better!
The album is just beautiful and has left everyone speechless whenever they see it. (including my Dad, which is very rare) We are passing on your business cards and our recommendations to all our friends and family.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for capturing our day in the most perfect way possible. Our wedding album is our most treasured item and cannot be faulted. Tears come to, not only our eyes, but others, who see our album. The emotion felt at the wedding, is also the emotion felt whilst perusing the album. Helen, we could not be happier with your work, we are extremely happy that we chose you as our wedding photographer. Thank you.”

“Simon & I would like to thank you for creating our gorgeous Wedding Album – one that we can proudly pass on to our children. You took some gorgeous pictures of our special day because of your fun, relaxed attitude. You were very professional and so easy to work with, and we really enjoyed having you there as part of our Wedding Day. We also loved the fact that our pictures were very natural and not posed at all – you really captured some great candid moments. Whenever we look at our album it transports us back to that magical day … and that is exactly what a wedding album should do!! Thank you so much for capturing our happy memories of our Wedding Day!”

“Helen McConnell Photography created the warmest, most enjoyable memories of our Wedding Day. From the moment we met Helen, we had a connection and shared the same sense of humour. She was fun but strict on timelines and captured every moment of our day perfectly. She created a beautiful, professional photo album for us and now we have a long lasting memory of our day. Thank you Helen so much.”
Thank you to our wonderful photographer Helen McConnell. Helen is a bright and happy person who makes you feel welcome in her home. She has the exact personality every wedding photographer requires to make your special day flow. Helen made the effort to get to know us and understand the type of photographs we wanted for our special day. The entire process was easy, enjoyable and hassle free.
On the wedding day Helen and her team were punctual, organised and professional! Helen McConnell’s photographs speak for themselves – stunning, unique and captivating. However, what is not advertised is how helpful Helen is prior to the wedding, on the big day and after the wedding. Helen and her team are friendly and helpful. We laughed, we celebrated, and we came home with photographs that captured the very essence of our celebrations.
Everyone who has viewed our wedding album has commented on the artistic design. Each page was carefully created to capture the emotion and tell the love story of the day. Our album tells a story that matches the beautiful lighting and direction in each shot. It was a joy to have our wedding photographed by Helen and her team. We now have something that can never be captured again. We highly recommend Helen McConnell Photography or you will miss out on lifelong perfect photographs to accompany your memories. Troy and Sarah, married at Tamborine Gardens.
WOW is the only word that comes to mind every time someone looks at our wedding album, the album is perfect and absolutely stunning in every single way. We cannot say thank you enough to Helen & Mark for capturing our day so perfectly. Helen is very professional but helps makes the day fun with her bright and bubbly personality, from the moment she arrived on the day she made us feel relaxed and at ease and we had so much fun posing for the photos, the time just flew by so quickly. We were so excited to go and see our photos for the first time and when we did we were absolutely amazed by them.
Helen is an incredible photographer and we will not hesitate in recommending her to anyone we know that is getting married.
Aaron and I would like to thank Helen McConnell photography from the bottom of our hearts for making our day absolutely perfect. From the beginning with our consultations we were made to feel truly comfortable. The finished product was unbelievable and you just can’t get photos as stunning anywhere else. The team made us feel so relaxed while they captured each of our moments that we will cherish forever. Helen and her team captured our story so naturally that is has truly reflected in our photos. We couldn’t of asked for a more supportive and fun photography team. From carrying our props, ensuring we were hydrated, and mostly, making us laugh is something we are very thankful for. Once again, thankyou to Helen and the team for giving us such perfect photos and memories we can continue to look back on and be proud of.
Wow – thanks so much for putting our album up on the blog! I am going to send the link to our overseas friends and family – they will love it.
I just wanted to say again how happy we are with the stunning album and photos from our wedding, we have been showing all of our friends and it’s just so lovely to relive to whole day from beginning to end through the album – you captured every moment perfectly.
It was a pleasure having you as our photographer at our wedding not to mention FUN. We will have no hesitation recommending you to our friends – in fact I’ve already recommended you to one of my bridesmaids!
Helen was able to capture our dream becoming a reality. I’ve dreamt about our wedding day for a very long time and with Helen’s help, guidance and happiness it become the best day of our lives! Still to this day I look back at our amazing photos and they bring a tear to my eye! Her talent with capturing just the right moment’s, her artisticness in creating our album and her wonderful and bright personality has made her the best in her field! I will always have a special place in my heart for Helen as she really did make the best day of our lives so special and memorable!
We want to say a huge thank you to Helen McConnell Photography for our gorgeous wedding album and pictures. We couldn’t be happier!The time and effort put into our day and our album was just awesome.Her knowledge really gave both our amazing wedding day and album the WOW factor!!We will defiantly be recommending your fabulous work to our family and friends.
Helen we are absolutely blown away with our wedding photos & the beautiful acrylic we have on the wall everyone that comes over ALWAYS comments on it! I also have constant comments on our album how no one has seen anything like it! It truly is a masterpiece and stand out to any other albums; we show it off every chance we get. From the day we met you you have been a constant help right through to the wedding and on the day went above and beyond it was a lot of fun taking our photos and expresses our relationship and the story of our beautiful day perfectly. I would recommend you to anyone who wants gorgeous, quality, standout photos to look back on for their special day. Best choice we made going to you!! Thank you so much and we look forward to coming back for our couples photo shoot in the near future.
We love our wedding photos! We never get sick of looking at them, the dvd or any of the other goodies we received. When we show people our album we are always bombarded with compliments and no matter how many other photographers’ portfolios we see, they just don’t come close to what you offer. The photos taken on the day represented what happened and the way we felt through all the special moments. You have been a pleasure to do business with from the very start. We will recommend Helen McConnell Photography to anyone we know who is after gorgeous, timeless photos and wants to deal with a classy and fun professional.Thanks again.
Helen McMcConnell Photography is by far the best choice in photography for your wedding day. Helen was friendly, approachable and informative in the lead up to the wedding. She recommended a brilliant celebrant, make-up artist and venue for the pre-wedding photographs. Helen made the photography on our actual wedding day bright and fun! The bridal party all agreed that Helen felt more like a friend than a stranger. Upon viewing our wedding photographs we were overwhelmed with just how many amazing photographs there were. We had a lot of trouble selecting photographs for our wedding album because there were so many great shots to choose from! Once we received the wedding album itself we were yet again blown away by the photographs – the layouts were creative and tasteful and I could not be happier with my wedding album. I couldn’t recommend Helen more highly. Helen is cost effective compared with the other elite photographers. Brides to be, I really would recommend allowing a decent portion of your wedding budget for photography – I guarantee it will be worth it if you have Helen as your photographer.
Sam and I just wanted to say a HUGE Thank You to Helen and Ruth that did an amazing job on our wedding day. The photos that she captured were truly magnificent, and the album that she designed for us was breathtaking.
Helen went out of her way to make sure that she captured every unique moment of our wedding day. She made us feel so relaxed and most of the time we couldn’t stop laughing, she has the bubbliest personality and we all just had so much fun! We would highly recommended Helen McConnell Photography to any couple that want the best photos that money can buy!
We just want to say thank you for the most amazing photos on our wedding day. To look back and see that you and your team have captured every possible moment throughout the day is wonderful. After originally meeting you Helen in 2010 while my now husband was serving in Afghanistan you were the first photographer l met with, and the last. From our first meeting three years ago to finally having the wedding you have been amazing through everything. Not only are you an excellent photographer and our album looks amazing, you also were able to get great photos from all the men! (Which is a very hard thing to do). Your enthusiasm and lively attitude made everyone feel at ease on the day which is the most nerve racking. We can’t thank you enough for the gift you have given us and the memories we can look back on forever. Thank you from Jess and Guy Harris.
Wow seems to be everyone’s expression when they see our wedding album. Thank you so much for the extra gifts for our parents too, it was very thoughtful of you. They loved them so much that we want to place an order for a parent’s album!
Thank you Helen for helping us to remember and beautifully immortalise our Wedding Day. You helped us to organise the day and made it run smoothly. You livened up the experience of posing and made sure we all had a great time. The photographs are more beautiful than we could ever hope for….they are natural, colourful and beautifully taken. Your energy and enthusiasm really showed through in your work.
Simon & I would like to thank you for creating our gorgeous Wedding Album – one that we can proudly pass on to our children. You took some gorgeous pictures of our special day because of your fun, relaxed attitude. You were very professional and so easy to work with, and we really enjoyed having you there as part of our Wedding Day. We also loved the fact that our pictures were very natural and not posed at all – you really captured some great candid moments. Whenever we look at our album it transports us back to that magical day…and that is exactly what a wedding album should do!! Thank you so much for capturing our happy memories of our Wedding Day!
Helen and her team are amazing. While looking for a photographer we discovered Helen McConnell Photography on YouTube and later on at a wedding expo and just fell in love with her photos and knew that our special day would be captured beautifully.
Our photo album is incredible and is a treasure that will be passed on to our children. We highly recommend Helen McConnell Photography. Helen is such a happy and friendly person and her team really made the nervous wedding party relaxed so they can capture the perfect photos that we have.
Thank you again Helen for everything.
Thank you so much for your contribution to our Wedding Day. You and your fabulous team ensured we have all the fantastic memories captured forever. “A picture is worth a thousand words” and you have certainly proved that with our gorgeous photos.
