About Terri Hanlon Photography

Runaway moments for the wildly in love.

How does a woman who spends her days behind the lens then write about herself? Easy, she doesn’t. It’s not about me, it’s about you. 

It’s about making the process as much fun as the elopement. It’s about finding a location and a tiny team that speaks to you. It’s about stripping it all back – all the gross wedding hoopla – to remember what brought you here. 

Hi, I’m Terri, and I’ll take gorgeous elopement shots for you! But wait there’s more. You also get an elopement consultant, a guide, a witness and a personal paparazzi (without the ick factor) all in one pint-sized package.

I’ll help guide you through the planning process from the moment we hop on the phone until the moment you say “I do.” We’ll get to know each other (my dad says I’m fun). I’ll listen (with a Disney level of excitement) to the story of how you met and fell in love.

With me as your photographer, expect to wander a little way for some epic views and golden light. We’ll ditch the stiff poses, embrace the candid in-between moments & feel real emotions.

Let’s pack some beers, ready the playlists and wear comfy shoes. We’re going to have a good time 🙂 …here’s to an unforgettable day that’s all about you and your love.

Runaway moments for the wildly in love.

About Terri

Confession time, I’ve never married. Shocking I know but save your tears, I’ve finally found my person! I’m not a fan of labels, but queer is one I wear with newfound pride. Together we enjoy doubling the wardrobe, half the chores & 2/3rds the salary ;). When the time comes, we’ll craft an epic elopement adventure of our own! Just like you, it’s more our style. Less fuss more meaning!

I got my start early in photography. It was that thing I couldn’t put down! It motivated me to learn, hustle, and create. Best of all, photography gave me that one-on-one connection with people. Through the lens, I could show others what they couldn’t see in themselves. That’s the hook that keeps me coming back for more. Creating images that represent the best version of you. No airbrushing is required. Come as you are.

Fun Facts

I live a minimalist, low waste lifestyle while learning to sew and watching tiny house tours… but I’m not as hippy as that sounds. 

In my mind I do yoga every day, in reality, I watch endless YouTube videos on living a healthier lifestyle. Usually with a bowl of chips in hand.

On days off, my partner and I hop in our campervan to find new adventures. She thinks we’re road tripping but it’s scouting for epic photo locations. Don’t tell her haha!

Humblebrag, I can DIY anything. I’ve rendered, assembled and sewed my way out of problems. On wedding days, I pack like a lady Macgyver. Prepared with double-sided tape, sewing kits, bandaids, lollies and more. 

Approach to Elopements

I like to keep it simple, focusing on what matters… you! We’ll discuss the where, when, why and how of it all. And get to the guts of what you’re looking for in this epic occasion. 

The timing of your ceremony is especially key for capturing truly stunning “This is going straight to the pool room” wedding photos that you can share with friends and family near & far.

Need help finding florists, celebrants or a location for your elopement? No problem, I can connect you with great local suppliers. Give me a shout if you’d like a local’s insight to find an epic location on the Sunshine Coast to elope. I’ll take any excuse to go exploring for your ideal view!

As a keen hiker, I know plenty of epic locations on the Sunshine Coast. From secluded finds nestled in the Glass House Mountains to quiet beaches and Maleny’s legendary One Tree Hill.


We could not recommend her enough! 
“From our engagement photos to our wedding day, she blew us away with how much she made us feel so comfortable and relaxed. Terri has created a lifetime of happy memories for us and we are forever grateful for having her as part of our wedding journey!”
Kind Words From Narelle and Mike
You’re so much more than a photographer!
“I honestly don’t even know where to start, Terri you are absolutely so amazing! You have gone out of your way to make every aspect of our wedding planning easy & stress-free. I’ve never even had professional photos done before and you made me feel on top of the world and so comfortable with you! You’re professional and so much fun to be around making the entire experience amazing.

Now the wedding day, you were absolutely unbelievable, you ironed my MOH & my robes, you jumped on the bed to help me put my wedding dress up over my head so I wouldn’t ruin my hair & makeup. Just above & beyond. When I booked you as our wedding photographer, I didn’t know what to expect, but you have been one of the best parts of our wedding experience and I am so in love with the photos. Thank you so much for being you, and for making our day what it was”
Melissa Whitbread
Cannot recommend her highly enough!
“The minute I spoke to Terri on the phone I knew she was going to be fantastic. She was bubbly, made everything easy and the shots are amazing. Cannot recommend her highly enough!”
