The Vivid Photography Studio – A Family Run Local Business

We are Cath & Rich Muldoon. We have a wonderful family which includes our children Daniel & Freya, two border collies Lucy & Charlie, a cheeky rag doll cat called Opie, and two mice Niblett and Minton (as in ‘bad minton!’) Lol.

We love living in Maleny, and our ‘shed’ is our creative space for all to come to enjoy. We are obsessed with Lego and have a massive collection on display (see below). Cath loves photography and enjoys nothing more than sharing her talent with her clients. Rich is an artist and paints and displays his amazing paintings and landscape photography in the shed as well.

Both Cath & Rich (us) have been photographing weddings for over 25 years, and are the most highly awarded and experienced wedding photography team in Queensland. In 2015 Rich won the AIPP Queensland Professional Photographer of the Year, and together we offer wedding photography clients the absolute best service, quality, and creativity. Cath will capture the intimate moments, the people and the occasion. Rich specialises in majestic and creative panoramic vistas or fine art works for your wall. Where better to capture these epic scenes, than in beautiful Maleny where we live and work. Visit us and experience the very best Sunshine Coast Wedding Photography.

We are located just 1.5 hrs from Brisbane, 30 minutes from the Sunshine Coast’s most beautiful beaches, and just minutes from breathtaking views of the Glasshouse Mountains to which we have exclusive access.
