We're all mad here

...but we'll tell you a secret. All the best people are.

We are natural light, fine-art photographers obsessed with shooting love stories and real people. Our unique non-posed style draws from documentary and connection photography enabling us to tell your story in a heartfelt, authentic way.

We are primarily based in Brisbane, Gold Coast and the Sunshine Coast, but will travel to the moon and back for love.

say hi!

Erica Wheadon (Principal Photographer)

Erica holds a Bachelor of Media from Southern Cross University. She began her career as a high school Film & TV teacher, before moving into corporate videography and training, and sliding sideways into more creatively fulfilling pursuits. She began taking on wedding and portraiture clients several years later, launching Wildhearted & Hitched – a clan of boutique elopement specialists on the Gold Coast that helped hundreds of couples run away and elope in stunning locations – before running away herself to the NSW South Coast to be a writer.

Lured back by warmer weather, Erica returned home to Queensland with a renewed desire for storytelling and human connection. When she’s not shooting, she’s finishing her Masters of Arts in Writing & Literature, and working on her first book.

You can find her haunting back-alley whisky bars and bookstores, making new Spotify playlists or finishing (hahaha) her thesis.

Currently listening to: Wildwood Kin, Mary Lambert, Jenny Lewis, Josh Ritter.
Currently obsessed with: Black and white film, handwritten journals, indie bookstores. Most cheese.
Can’t go past: A really good Old Fashioned.

Laura Sharp-Wheadon (Associate Photographer)

Laura is a Bachelor of Photography student at Queensland College of Art, completing a major in Documentary Photography.

In 2016, Laura won the Tamborine Mountain College Arts Award and her work was nominated for the Creative Generations Excellence in Visual Art Education Awards. In 2017, she completed her Diploma of Photography and Photo Imaging at the South Bank Institute of TAFE. Laura’s photography focuses on human connection and storytelling, and believes that the soul of every image lies in its imperfection.

You can find her at LARP, shooting the streets of Brisbane or planning her next cosplay.

Currently listening to: M83, Billie Eilish and YUNGBLUD
Currently obsessed with: Pokemon Moon, sweet potato chips and Synthwave music.
Can’t go past: A good hot mocha or a Somersby Cider.

The rest of the Whisky + the Moon team will be
