Lisa Lent Photography

Hey there, I’m Lisa & this is how I got started.

I officially started the business back in 2004 but I was photographing anything that moved long before that. I knew that I wanted to do photography as a career but wasn’t sure what area. I tried sports (photographed for the Central Coast Mariners for a year), but that wasnt for me, I tried landscapes and go bored very quickly. It wasn’t until a friend rang me and said she knew of a couple who’s photographer bailed on them a week out from their wedding and they were desperate.

After a very anxious phone call to the bride, explaining that I had never done a wedding before we both agreed that I would shoot it. I am not going to lie, I was SO nervous. This is someone’s big day! the HUGEST day. No pressure right? I walked out of that church with the biggest smile on my face. I 1000% knew this was my job. I don’t even know how to explain it but I knew in my heart that this was it. So 17+ years and 850 couples later I am still doing what I love.

Why Lisa?

Ahh yes, the part of the website where I need to write about myself. Always fun!  I am a self confessed polka dot lover, I believe that everyone should know at least one episode of Friends, I love anything 80’s and can be found hugging my cats on the lounge when not working. I am a mum of 2 gorgeous boys and I have been happily married for 30 years! 

The older I get the more I realise life is about experiences & love. Ticking off bucket list items, spending quality time with the people you love and just being a good person all round. 

I like to approach a wedding day with a pretty solid timeline but I am quite ready to throw it out the window and adapt to whatever is happening. I love nothing more than photographing candids, or couples in stunning late afternoon light. I love a loved up couple, fun and friendly bridal parties and a dance floor full of people.
