Beth offers an incredible service to capture you and your gown submerged in an otherworldly dimension.
We got the opportunity to quiz Ms Mitchell on a little bit of what she is about...
In a nutshell, who are you and what do you do?
I specialise in the art of underwater photography. In your case, I encapsulate your beauty in what they like to call "Trash the Dress" but let's call it creating beautiful art UNDERWATER. I am a fashion photographer and a fine artist, which makes for a lovely combination.
What is it about weddings that you love so much?
Oh Weddings! Don't get me wrong, I love LOVE. But I love fashion more (maybe). For me it's about the beauty that is in the dress, who is the designer, what inspires this work of art? I find that some gowns are MEANT to be photographed and hung to keep them alive.
What is the most unique thing you’ve seen at a wedding?
As mentioned above, I'm all about that couture and beauty. So when I've photographed lovely women in gowns underwater, especially brides, it does give a very unique take on the "trash the dress" concept. I love to be part of that.
What do you do in your free time?
Frequent coastal trips (sometimes on the back of a motorbike, which I love), soaking in art, exploring new cafes and playing with my adorable cat Jetté
If you were a colour, which colour would you be, and why?
It's weird, my work is *BAM* colour. But myself, not as much. I would have to say Gold. Because if just goes so well with black.
Chocolate Old Fashioned - not just because I'm a fashion photographer, but because I cannot live without chocolate.
Favourite Restaurant in Brisbane?
LostBoys Fortitude Valley - gorgeous cafe. Like a dreamland. Beautiful iced mochas!
