Capture Your Love Story
The Essence of Wellington Wedding Photography
As a fervent storyteller, I thrive on the opportunity to encapsulate the emotional tapestry of a wedding day. The Wellington landscape, with its charming quirks and idyllic vistas, makes for an extraordinary backdrop to any couple’s narrative. My approach to Wellington wedding photography hinges on embracing the essence of each unique love story through my lens – ensuring that the tender glances, the laughter, and every nuanced moment are immortalized.
Documenting Every Fleeting Moment
There’s an undeniable magic in the transient moments of a wedding day – a slight curl of the lips, the nervous fiddling of hands, or the transient beam of pride across a parent’s face. My commitment is to meticulously capture each of these fleeting instances, so that when you look back, the full emotional spectrum of your special day springs back to life.
The Art of Storytelling Through Photos
Wedding photography, for me, is far more than a series of posed snaps; it’s the art of visual storytelling. Every couple has a tale, and through my photos, I aim to weave together the moments that culminate in a breathtaking narrative of your day. The first kiss as a married couple, the riotous dance moves, and even the serene moments of reflection – each snapshot is a paragraph in your love story.
Sophisticated Photography Techniques
Dual-Camera Systems for Comprehensive Coverage
In pursuit of excellence, I use dual-camera systems that allow me to be in two places at once, metaphorically speaking. The comprehensive coverage ensures that while one camera captures a wide shot of the ceremony, the other is ready to snap a candid reaction, leaving no moment unattended.
Advanced Equipment for Perfect Shots
With my trusted arsenal of advanced equipment, every shot is teed up for perfection. Using the latest in photographic technology, I have the capability to conquer low light, capture the swiftest of actions, and render images with stunning clarity and color.
Second Shooter & Videography Options
For a wedding so full of life and bustling with guests, a second shooter becomes an unobtrusive shadow, doubling our chances to catch every memory. And for those who long for not just stills but the very movement and sound of the day, videography options are readily available. Together, we weave both still and motion pictures into a complete tapestry of your wedding day.
Pre-Wedding Shoot: The Prelude
Building Comfort in Front of the Camera
Understanding the camera can be an intimidating presence, the pre-wedding shoot serves as a relaxed prelude, allowing us to build a rapport. It’s a chance for me to show you how easy and natural it can be, and for you to demonstrate your personality and love story in the most candid way.
The Importance of Engagement Announcements
These pre-wedding photos are not just practice shots; they also serve a purpose. Use them for elegant engagement announcements, save-the-date cards, or simply to share your joy with friends and family across your social platforms.
Capturing the Anticipation Before the Big Day
The pre-wedding shoot beautifully bookmarks the anticipation before you say “I do.” It’s an opportunity to encapsulate the excitement, the dreams, and the unspoken vows that float between the future bride and groom before the crescendo of the wedding day.
Tailored Wedding Packages
Adaptable Coverage for Your Special Day
Acknowledging that every wedding is as distinctive as the couple at its heart, my wedding packages are customizable with adaptable coverage. Whether you seek the subtle intimacy of a few hours’ photography or require a full day’s documentarian presence, the packages are tailored to your needs.
Options from Prints to Elegant Albums
And following the wedding, you’ll have a myriad of ways to revisit those cherished moments – from high-quality prints that grace your walls to elegant albums that tell the story in vivid detail, to cherish and pore over for years to come.
Choosing the Right Package for Your Needs
Navigating the options and choosing the right package can be a daunting task, but I am here to guide you through it. Based on your expectations, guest count, and the minutiae of your special day, we’ll find the perfect fit to ensure all is captured within the scope of your vision.

Tiered Wedding Photography Pricing
Understanding the Different Tiers
My tiered pricing structure is designed to accommodate diverse needs and expectations. Ranging from basic coverage to comprehensive packages, each tier is curated with consideration for various wedding sizes and the elements you wish to include.
Evaluating What’s Included in Each Package
As you venture through the tiers, evaluate not just the hours of coverage but the tangibles and intangibles included – from the pre-wedding shoot experience to the addition of a second shooter, from the online gallery to the tactile pleasure of a printed photo book.
How to Select a Tier Based on Your Wedding Size
Guidance is always at hand to help you select the most fitting tier based on your wedding’s scale, style, and the intricacies of the day. Together, we navigate the options, ensuring that the celebrations are commemorated in a way that resonates with you personally.
Embracing the Elopement Trend
Coverage for Intimate & Small Weddings
In the embrace of intimacy, the modern elopement trend finds its allure. My services extend to cover these smaller, personal unions, ensuring the essence of your commitment is captured with the same level of precision and beauty as any grand affair.
Specialized Elopement Packages
Recognizing the unique nature of elopements, I offer specialized packages tailored to capture the understated elegance of these intimate exchanges. Despite the smaller scale, the importance remains paramount, and the photography reflects this.
Elopement Photography: Simple Yet Beautiful
Simplicity should never equate to compromise. Whether it’s a quiet city hall “I do,” or a secluded beachfront vow exchange, elopement photography focuses on the couple’s connection within the simplicity, yielding images that are inherently beautiful and undeniably powerful.
Innovative Wedding Videography
Capturing Your Wedding Day in Motion
The laughter, the words spoken, and the music – these are the dimensions of your wedding that still photography alone can’t encapsulate. Wedding videography allows the day to be relived in motion, preserving the full vibrancy and dynamism of your celebration.
Using Gimbals and Drones for Dynamic Footage
Utilizing state-of-the-art gimbals and drones, the resultant footage offers perspectives that are dramatic, cinematic, and engaging. From soaring aerial views of the venue to smooth, stabilized walk-throughs of the bustling reception, every angle ushers in a refreshing dynamism.
Editing a Cinematic Wedding Highlight Reel
The raw footage of your day, when entrusted into the hands of a skilled editor, transforms into a cinematic wedding highlight reel. This final, polished product cinematically recounts the narrative of your day, leaving you with a heart-stirring memento that’s a joy to revisit time and again.
After the Wedding: Accessing Your Memories
Receiving Your Online Gallery and Digital Downloads
