I live in the beautiful mountain town of Queenstown, New Zealand.
Yes I am totally keen to travel anywhere in the world to shoot!
I will ask for a 20% non-refundable booking fee at the time of booking. I accept payment via PayPal & Stripe for Credit card payments.
Yes absolutely. Queenstown is surrounded by the southern alps, there are many remote mountain tops- some with glaciers, lake and waterfalls at the top.
I highly suggest you make the most of your session and time in Queenstown by adding a helicopter flight to your session.
You can choose to visit one location starting from $950NZ or multiple locations.
Landing times are a minimum of 45 minutes giving us plenty of time to create some awesome images. Please enquire for a full helicopter price list.
Yes. I have a very talented videographer on board to capture your epic love story. We work together as a team and our number one priority is giving you the best experience possible. Our film style is cinematic – Check a video out here.
My images are my art and I spend a lot of time editing to make sure they look amazing. Please familiarise yourself with my editing style and make sure we are a good fit before you book as I do not give out RAW files.
If you are able to do a morning shoot or a late afternoon shoot we are going to hit that goldenly goodness. The light is perfect at this time & locations are virtually empty at this time too.
Although I do offer a one hour couples session I recommend you book a 2 or more hour session, because it does take time to get comfortable in front of the camera and by choosing a longer session time this will help you relax and look more yourself. You will also have time for outfit & location changes.
I’ve taken all the hard work out of location planning. Here is my guide to Queenstown’s best photoshoot locations.
You are also welcome to look at my instagram for location inspiration.
Please note plans can change on the day depending on the weather, but in most cases you will get to visit your first choice of location. If you would prefer me to take the lead and plan the locations for our session, great!
Yes! Sessions of two hours or more will allow you time to change and I always recommend an outfit change if you want. It allows for some dressier and some more casual images or just a different look in a different location.
After you book I will deliver my outfit guide into your inbox. This will outline what type of clothes and colours photograph best.
I believe in quality over quantity. Especially when it comes to wedding photography.
I take a creative approach and look for moments and emotions that tell a story.
I am not “trigger happy” and you won’t be scrolling through 50 images that all look exactly the same.
You get expect to receive an online album with 30-40 edited images per hour of actual photography. (this does not include time taken to drive/walk to locations)
These are High Resolution, fully downloadable and easy to share with family and friends.
Yes I take a lot of time and care perfecting each image.
I strive to deliver my couples sessions within 2 weeks & my weddings within 6 weeks.
A little rain never hurt anybody right? I believe there is no such thing as a bad day. If the heavens open and we get a torrential downpour then I will do my best to reschedule our session depending on availability. BUT depending on the forecast I will probably suggest we embrace it. Another reason for sticking out crazy weather is the possibility of capturing some absolutely beautiful photos. Rainbows anyone?
Check out this blogpost. It lists all my favourite artists in the Queenstown area.
Yes my rainbow friends, love is love and you are very welcome here.
YOU are beautiful and I am not about to start changing that. I try to keep the images as authentic as possible, just a little touch up here and there (pimples, powerlines) for those easy on the eye images.
HELL YEAH! Let’s get in the car and travel! There may be a small travel fee incorporated into the cost of your shoot.
That makes me sad! But, you will only forfeit your 20% booking fee. Due to high demand and booking availability I have most likely turned down another session to spend time with you.
I put a cap on how many large weddings I take on each year, as I love to spend time with my family on the weekends. However, please do enquire as I have a set number of weekend wedding spaces available and if those are already booked you can always book me for a weekday wedding!
Absolutely this comes under my couples sessions pricing please enquire for more info.
