From the moment we contacted Kate in regards to capturing our elopement, she instantly put us at ease. She was friendly and funny and her communication was excellent throughout the whole process.

If you’re looking for a person that is an absolute professional and creates outstanding images for you to enjoy for years to come – Kate’s your woman!

All of our friends and family have said that the images don’t look real!  Some of the best wedding images they have ever seen (their words not ours)

Kate – we cannot thank you enough for all you did for us, prior to, during, and after our wedding. You were absolutely wonderful. You know we’ll be recommending you to anyone that wants to get married in Queenstown!

With Love, Chris & Dan

Easy Steps to get your wedding planned!



Have a look around my site, check out the packages I offer, and browse the FAQs. Read some blogs from my elopement shoots with other couples for inspiration. Once you are ready, fill out my contact form, and let's chat about what your dream day looks like.



Officially book your date with a 25% booking fee & I'll send you a short online questionnaire so I can get to know you both better. I'll also send you your bonus 87-page elopement guide to help you choose your amazing local celebrant and vendors as well as 100's of tips & tricks on how to create a memorable elopement experience.



The possibilities for your day are endless. What is your dream? Does it include helicopters and mountain tops or champagne by the lakeside? The best thing about hiring a local as your photographer means that I know all the best spots and the best vendors so I can help with everything. We can email or if you prefer, hop on a phone call or video chat to solidify plans for your dream elopement. We can discuss the important details like the best time of year, weather, and timeline ideas for the day, helping you to focus on enjoying the day. I will then craft a bespoke elopement timeline that optimizes for best lighting and logistics so you can have a fun and relaxed experience. Let's design a day that you will remember forever.



Ok breathe, here we go! This is the part where planning and dreaming all come to life. Whether you and your love have decided to be whisked away to a mountain top or to drive to the lake this is the fun bit. I will be there to capture you having the most exciting day of your life, guiding you when you need it, and hanging back when you don't. It will go by in a flash but luckily step 5 will help with this...



You're officially married! Congratulations- I hope you enjoyed every second and are already reliving your favourite moments. Your edited photo gallery will be delivered to your inbox within 6 weeks so until then kick back, relax, and enjoy every little bit of being MARRIED!

Answers to all of your questions

Where are you located?
I live in the beautiful mountain town of Queenstown, New Zealand, and I am available in both Wanaka and Queenstown for elopements.
What about covid?
With life getting turned upside down I’m sure you are wondering- but what happens if we book and then can’t travel?
To make this as stress-free as possible you can reschedule to a date that suits us both at no additional cost.
Do you offer video?
Yes, I have a very talented videographer on board who has spent many years in the film and tv industry. He is known for his beautiful cinematic style of videography. We have a variety of video packages including live streaming.
Please enquire for the full price list.
Will you help us plan our elopement?
Absolutely! Your elopement package is all-inclusive of elopement planning. Once we chat about how you envision your elopement day unfolding I can suggest locations based on time of year, lighting, and the number of guests you’re inviting.
I can organise and book your chosen celebrant, the videographer, helicopter flights should you want them, as well as add any florals or styling packages.
You can rest assured everything will be taken care of leaving you to enjoy a stress-free and easy elopement day.
(I promise it will be epic!)
How many guests can we have?
How many guests can we have?
My elopement packages are for under 20 guests, in saying that a lot of my couples choose to elope by themselves.
If you are planning on having more guests I would suggest you look at my wedding packages to ensure you get the right amount of coverage you will need for the day.
We love your work! How do we officially book you in?
That’s easy, fill out my contact form with your preferred date and I’ll get back to you within 24 hours.
When you are ready to book you will just need to pay a 25% non-refundable booking fee to hold your date with the balance due 2 weeks prior to your elopement.
And don’t worry, if we go into another lockdown you will be able to reschedule to another date that suits us both at no additional cost.
Once that’s all done it’s time to get excited as you are one step closer to getting married! We can organise a phone call or skype to get into the fun stuff! The planning!!
