Welcome to See Photography, website of Brisbane personal brand Photographers Jen and Doug Paroz.
We work together with you to understand your brand, its values and the stories you want to share. We plan your photography sessions so your images truly reflect your brand and support your business and online profile.
We're lifelong Brisbane kids with a mild obsession for collecting unloved instruments, homeless old film cameras and retro treasures. Not yet at hoarder status, I would call us enthusiastic collectors. We are parents to four rowdy kids so that keeps us busy when we're not out shooting or at computers.
Our photography style is best described as natural and documentary lifestyle portraiture, with a nostalgic and sentimental undertone. We love nature and respect it. We treasure heritage, handmade and keepsakes crafted with love.
Tell the story of you and your brand through authentic images. Showcase your work and your craft and share with your audience the process behind the scenes - the heart and soul of your brand.
If you have hopes of enlisting a photographer and are freaking out about being the face of your brand and having your photo taken, I totally get it. I listen and work collaboratively with you to create images that will represent your story and connect with your audience. Images that will reflect you and your business in the best light. I will always work my hardest to document your story by way of timeless artful imagery.
Our clients are...

looking for authentic, honest and documentary imagery
wanting to share their story, their journey and the origins of their brand
ready to take their successful business and online presence to the next level
sometimes a little adventurous
sympathetic to the relationship between people and place
believers in preserving history and a bit nostalgic
I'm a bit of a sentimental hippie who has spent the last 20 years (whoa where did THAT go!) pointing a camera at the things and people around me. Printed antique family photos with pencil scratched on the back hold a special place in my heart and home. Finding people who also share this wonder and being able to provide photographs for them is the best part of my day. When shooting for myself, I have a soft spot for architecture and quirky houses, vintage hand painted signage and the tiny things found in nature. I have a deep admiration for all the creative folk out there past and present who are responsible for making our world a prettier place. I tip my hat to them for their inspiration and resilience.
When shooting for my clients, I look for natural and intimate emotions. I'll also scout for an epic backdrop. I'm always on the lookout for fields and forests, buildings and cool places when we are out on our family adventures.
After the shoot is over and and you made it out ok, a couple of weeks later you'll have the well deserved reward of seeing some lovely photos in a gallery made especially for you. We love a good card stock around here and we really love things with a bit of natural texture and authenticity. Having your personal and family images printed is so important to us. Traditional mounted art prints in Italian leather satchels, classic wall art, custom albums and contemporary magazines are some of the treasured keepsakes we offer our clients. All wedding packages include digital images on usb in a keepsake box (because we're not trying to change the world here, digital is here to stay!)
Doug joined the See Photography team in 2008 after moonlighting as second shooter at friend's wedding. Since then he has doubled as a trusty sidekick, technical support guy, time keeper, packhorse, professional driver, crowd controller, coffee runner, awesome dad and very patient husband. Doug has a long career in aviation and has experience in management and overseeing operations of large events. He is an experienced photographer in his own right with a particular interest in aerial photography and macro (all the details). He's also great at getting those lovely long exposures at a wedding. Doug is an awesome second shooter and is essential in the wedding toolkit.
Big thanks to all of our clients who have shared their time with us. It's been our pleasure and privilege to photograph you all. Jx
