Welcome! We hope you’ve come to our website because you’re looking for something a bit different. You want your personalities to shine through your photos and for your day to be captured uniquely and without too much formality. We’re a little bit different, a little unconventional. We see things differently as we search for wedding magic, like photo hunters (insert roar here!). We’re all about real people and real emotions. You make it happen and we’ll be there to capture it, no fuss required. We do things differently, but we will create photography you’ll love.

We’ll become your adopted friends and your guests will think we’ve known each other for years. We’ll start the day when you do, Eleanor spending the morning with the ladies and James with the guys. And we’ll stay right on into the party if you want us to (just as long as you show us your best dance moves!) so there’s no pressure of any time limits. We’re all about the small details that make your wedding unique and the in-between moments, the ones that are beautiful, natural and unposed. Moments that you couldn’t stage.

We’re based in Birkenhead, Auckland but we welcome inquiries from all over New Zealand as well as internationally. We love our overseas wedding adventures! We’ve previously photographed weddings in Fiji, Australia, Europe and Barbados but get in quick as we only do a limited amount of destination weddings each year.

A FAQ section is here but please fill in our contact form from the menu above to get in touch!
