Aleesha McQuilton

Director

My name is Aleesha, and I am based in Shepparton. My beautiful family consists of my two children Ruby and Harvey, and my husband Aidan.

My passion for photography erupted in 2015, and after working in the field for a year, I noticed a gap in the videography market. After many years of experience, I now love alternating between both creative industries. I have captured more than 75 weddings, and each wedding still makes me as excited as the first.

I am a qualified primary and special education teacher, and have always loved my career in teaching, but as business demand grew, I decided to pursue photography and videography on a full-time basis. This allows me to have the perfect work and family life balance.  

I am certainly not shy and I am always up for a chat, I feel that my background in teaching shines during my photography sessions, for my strength lies in connecting with children and getting along with others. 

About McQuilton Productions

So who is McQuilton Productions?

Well here I am, just me, Aleesha.
I am the photographer, videographer, editor, and creator of McQuilton Productions. I do have a small team of casuals to assist with second shooting/videography assisting, and my amazing husband runs the IT and accounts management aspect of my business, but mainly, it’s just me. I am based in Shepparton, Victoria, but I am happy to travel to capture love!

I am passionate about every job I take on and feel just as excited about each wedding as I did at the first. My highlight videos will document your day and tell your unique love story through each glance, tear drop, smile, and laughter.

When it comes to family portraits, I make these photoshoots as fun and light-hearted as possible to be able to create natural story-telling images. Although there is often a need for some staged family photos, my favourite images are the ones that are caught in families natural bonding moments – expect lots of tickling, running, squishing, and throwing children in the air. As well as portraits, we are available for photography and videography coverage for a variety of occasions including debs, birthday parties, christenings, baby showers and engagement parties.

McQuilton Productions can also work with you for your commercial photography and videography needs. Inquire within for further information and work samples.

Why Choose McQuilton Productions?

My easy-going personality enables me to have good relationships with other vendors, so you can have peace of mind knowing that I will work in well with your other chosen creatives.

The most famous line I hear is “my partner is not keen for photos”. I totally get this (mine’s the same!). I am non-intrusive, and use a ‘prompt’ not ‘pose’ approach, where I give the two of you actions to do, often involving movement to create natural candid images. 

I shoot with top of the range Sony mirrorless cameras and have lenses for every occasion to create stunning high-res images and footage. I use three different audio recording methods to ensure crisp clear audio recording to accompany your video edits.

My editing style for both photography and videography reflects a warm, vibrant and almost true to colour picture. I tend to steer clear of current editing trends, so that your images and footage will be forever timeless, and the style will not date. 

As a licensed drone operator, if flying conditions are suitable on your day, I can include drone footage and images in your package at no extra cost. 

If you are unsure what you are looking for with your videography/photography needs, do not hesitate to get in touch. I love a chat nonetheless and I am happy to provide you with a custom package to suit your needs.
