New Zealand Wedding Photographer of the Year - 2017 & 2018


Hi there, thanks for showing an interest in my work. I’m stoked that you are considering me as your wedding photographer! I understand you're probably working with a budget, so I have done my best to keep my prices as low as I can, and the quality as high as I can. You will not only receive a lifetime of memories and a great set of photographs from me, but also a very personal service and a fun experience on the day. I genuinely care about you. I care about your wedding, and I care about the results I create. In fact, I'm quite confident to say that after your wedding I won't just be your photographer, but also your friend!

Weddings are amazing days filled with happy tears, crazy nerves, unforgettable moments, and intense emotions. My goal is to capture all of this with creativity and fun. I have a very calm, but attentive approach with a strong focus on documenting the natural and candid moments from the day, while also giving good direction so that we can achieve the best results. In the package options below, I can be there to capture all the special parts of your day that you want covered, including:

> both of you getting ready (if practical)
> all the little specifics and details (dresses, suits, rings, flowers, shoes etc etc)
> the ceremony and your guests
> group and family/friends photos
> candid photos throughout the day
> wedding party and couple's creative photo session
> reception, details, speeches, cake cutting, first dance & partying
+ all of those other little unexpected and special moments that happen in-between

I highly recommend my full day coverage options, not only does it make more sense from a price point of view, but it gives more time for me to be there for the best photos and moments - the unplanned ones that happen throughout the day -> like Dad practicing his speech nervously in the corner, or a surprise gift from your partner, or the tears rolling down Mum's cheek during the ceremony, or maybe even the bestman splitting his pants (yes, this really happened)

I work on a first come first served basis, a deposit and a submitted agreement reserves your wedding date for you (both of these can be done easily online). I'm currently taking bookings for the 2020 season and even 2021.

In the pricing options and packages below, there should be something for everyone, but I understand you might want to customise the options further to suit you. I'm a very flexible person, and quite easy to talk to - I'm happy to chat about an hourly and custom package option that works for both of us, just ask :) Get in touch here to discuss your requirements. Lets make it happen :)
