Averie Cole

Founder, Lead Photographer, Editor

I’m a Mama, a sister, a daughter and a fierce believer in women and the amazing things we can achieve when we work together.  I was born and raised in Australia in a small costal town and spent my youth on the beach and hiking in the Australian bush with my Grandparents. I lived in Sydney for 10 years, working in the hospitality industry whilst finishing my Bachelor of Fine Arts. In 2008 I put down the cocktail shaker for good and began shooting weddings full time, I haven’t looked back since! In 2015 I travelled to NYC for a girls trip of a lifetime and ended up meeting my now husband Mel D Cole. After 3 months we married in Hawaii on Makapu Beach and now live in Jersey City Heights with our 8 month old baby boy Auggie, our Vizsla Bruce and our two kitties Sidney and Petey.  I choose every day to chase my dreams and live life to the fullest. Living life to the fullest means being the best version of myself I can be, the best photographer I can be, throwing dinner parties, being part of my crossfit community, date nights with my husband, couch cuddles with Auggie, red wine on a rooftop, weekend brunch dates, poolside vacays in Miami and Netflix binges on the couch. I also have a weak spot for shopping, plants and interior design. My Instagram feed is basically apartment therapy x plants x Australian designers.
