WE DO Photography
Creative editorial wedding photography…
…and a little bit of rock ‘n’ roll.
Layered. Grungy. Real.
All of these could be used to describe our approach to wedding photography.
We’re always looking for good light. Mirrors & reflections. Frames within frames. A smile. A laugh. A tear.
Every individual photo should stand alone and tell a story.
But collectively, they tell a beautiful, wonderful story. Your story.
Working with us
Our goal is simple. To capture and tell the story of your wedding day with carefully composed artistic photographs.
We do our best to fit in with you and your guests. Being a part of the day helps us capture the natural emotions. Very few of our photos are posed.
We’d be lying if we said you won’t notice us, but we go out of our way to help your big day flow the way you planned. We are not the focus – you are. We won’t hold up the dinner plans because of our photo session, or ask you to do things you’re not comfortable doing. Be yourself.
And of course, who doesn’t want to a bit of fun along the way? ;)
Why hire us?
We’re a team of 2
We’re 2 photographers. Every time. 2 cameras. 2 angles. 2 creative viewpoints. 2 chances to capture that amazing moment.
We’re married too
We’ve been there. We met, teenage sweethearts, in 1997. Engaged 8 years later in 2006, we were married at Wellington’s Erskine Chapel in 2008. We lived together, traveled together, married together, and now we’re working together.
We understand what’s important
You can have your runway shoes, your designer dress, your handmade table decorations or your gifted jewellery. But what really matters? It’s the people you surround yourself with, your family, friends and guests. Sure, we’ll capture your details (Aneta is especially good at this), but we know what photos are really important.
We’ve won awards
We don’t make a big deal about the, but we’re proud of our NZIPP awards. See some of them here.

We’re Wellington based – right in the middle of the country – but always prepared to travel. We’ve been to Queenstown, to Cambridge, to Christchurch, to Taupo. I’m sure we can travel to your wedding.
We’re constantly looking to evolve our craft. To tell a better story. If you want us to be a part of your memories – get in touch.
Our blog posts are always a good indication of how we approach a wedding, and we’re extremely proud of our DVD slideshows – contact us to view some of these (music licensing laws mean we can’t present these publicly, as much as we’d love to).
