Understanding Wellington Wedding Photography
Capturing Your Love Story
As I embark on the journey of Wellington wedding photography, I understand the importance of capturing the unique narrative of each couple’s love story. I take the time to get to know the distinctive joy, intimacy, and depth of your relationship. By weaving together the smiles, tears, and quiet moments, I create a visual storybook that reflects the essence of your special day.
Sophisticated Photography Techniques
My approach uses sophisticated photography techniques that include a dual-camera system, allowing me to capture every nuance of your wedding with intricate detail. This ensures that all the fleeting moments – from spontaneous laughter to tender glances – are forever immortalized.
Elevating Your Experience with a Pre-Wedding Shoot
To elevate your wedding photography experience even further, I offer a pre-wedding shoot. This 30-minute session is not just about taking beautiful photos; it’s about building rapport and helping you feel at ease in front of the camera, leading to even more authentic and relaxed images on your wedding day.
Exploring Tailored Wedding Packages
Flexibility and Personalization
My wedding packages are designed to be flexible and personalized to suit your needs. Starting with a base of six hours of coverage, I work with you to create a package that aligns perfectly with your wedding day vision, ensuring that no precious moment goes uncaptured.
Breaking Down the Tier System
To simplify the selection process, I offer a tiered package system. Each tier includes different levels of coverage and services to match various expectations and budgets. This allows you to choose a package that resonates with the scale and style of your wedding.
Additional Services and Enhancements
Beyond the tiers, there are additional services and enhancements available. From extended hours to a second shooter, these options allow for a more comprehensive capture of your wedding day or the inclusion of specialized elements like videography or live streaming.

The Tier One package includes six hours of on-site photography with a single shooter. This provides ample time to document the significant parts of your celebration, from the preparation to the reception.
Included Pre-Wedding Shoot
Included in this package is a 30-minute pre-wedding shoot. This session is invaluable as it helps to build chemistry and gives you a taste of what to expect on your wedding day.
The Benefits of a Single Shooter
Choosing a single shooter ensures a consistent style and intimate feel to your wedding photos. It allows for a more personal and discreet presence throughout your day, capturing moments without intrusion.
Optional Second Shooter Upgrade
An optional upgrade available is the addition of a second shooter for $650. This is a great choice if you wish to have multiple perspectives and a broader coverage of your wedding day.

Tailored Photography for Small Home Weddings
Small home weddings receive the same attention to detail as grand events. I adapt my coverage to the unique atmosphere of your intimate celebration, ensuring that the essence of your home-wedding is captured beautifully.
Affordability of the Elopement Package
These more intimate celebrations are reflected in the affordability of the elopement package, which includes two hours of on-site coverage – perfect for couples who desire elegance and simplicity.
The Importance of a Pre-Wedding Shoot
Fostering Comfort Before the Camera
A pre-wedding shoot goes beyond just capturing images; it builds familiarity and fosters comfort before the camera. This ensures that on your wedding day, you can be your natural selves, resulting in more authentic and heartfelt images.
Getting Perfect Shots for Announcements
The images from your pre-wedding shoot are not only a warm-up for the big day but also perfect for use in your engagement announcements or save-the-date cards, adding a professional and personal touch.
Building a Connection with the Photographer
Pre-wedding shoots also provide an opportunity for us to build a connection. This rapport is essential for creating a relaxed atmosphere, which makes a remarkable difference in the quality and feel of your wedding photos.
