Little moments

big feelings


Thank you for being here!

My name is Kiri, and I’m a professional wedding, family and lifestyle photographer. Originally from the beautiful coastal town of Byron Bay, but now residing in Sydney's Northern Beaches, I love nothing more than to capture the little moments and the big feelings.

Pre-Covid I spent a lot of my time travelling all over the globe, capturing landscapes, love and human connection. Travelling is what sets my soul on fire, has nurtured my creativity and allowed me to flourish and grow as a professional photographer. Now that we are all spending a lot more time at home, I've found an even greater appreciation for the small, quiet moments. Finding that it's often the 'ordinary', everyday moments that we look back on with the fondest memories.

I’m forever in awe of the way we love, and can be loved, and through capturing these real moments in your life, I hope to give you something you can look back on and feel for a lifetime.

TRAVELING WORLD wide for love



We couldn't fault Kiri - everything about Kiri Shay Photography service was professional. The way she captured our wedding was like a dream, she exceeded every possible expectation and we can't thank her enough. She went above and beyond to capture our special moments, and recommending her to other clients just doesn't seem an adequate enough thank you! You won't regret hiring Kiri to capture your special moments xx

I'll admit, I was feeling pretty nervous about the idea of someone taking photos of me, but Kiri's reassurance and easy going nature made it all so relaxed and fun! The whole process was so enjoyable and the photos she took are something I'll cherish for a lifetime. When you look at them you can just feel the love. Thank you so much, these photos are now my favourite thing in the universe!

Kiri took our wedding photos in Thailand.
I absolutely admire her patience and love for taking photos. She is so passionate and always finds ways to make the object or person she is taking photos of, look their best. Kiri is super creative and loves focusing on the small detail. Especially capturing the magic in situations and special moments makes her photos shine and transmit this magical sparkle.
Thank you for your amazing work!
