'Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory' - Dr Seuss
Before we press the shutter button, we always think a few decades ahead. Will this image still be loved by people as much then as now? Will this moment be as important...or more so? Who will be looking at it? And will the story and the feelings still be as powerful?
We are story tellers and memory keepers. We write your story with light, humour, candid observation and technical expertise, and preserve your memories with a commitment to classical photography that endures beyond today's trends.
We are motivated by connections between people and being able to share in something intensely personal and emotional through what we do. We don't take photos of how you looked, we create memories of how you felt.
not how you looked, but how you felt
A good photograph is many things; technical control, awesome light, strong composition and subject matter. A great photograph takes you back to the emotions of the moment. We aren't just taking photos of you on your wedding day. We are there to make sure your grandchildren one day understand just how incredible it felt to marry the one you love.
'Every time Tara and I look at our wedding photos we find something new that reinforces for us how perfect Eva and Andrew were for our wedding – we simply can’t recommend them more highly. They didn’t feel like professionals providing a service, more like extra members of our wedding party who happened to be carrying cameras. I would almost like to get married again just to spend another day partying with Eva and Andrew.'

'Michelle and Becs did an AMAZING job at our wedding. The photos are absolutely stunning and show what a beautiful place New Zealand is. Michelle's communication and professionalism throughout the process was outstanding and we loved having her excitement and energy with us on the day. There were so many 'OMG' moments as she showed us images on the back of her camera! We had the best day and look forward to reminiscing as we look at the photos over the years.'
- JO BATEMAN
the best thing about memories is making them
Be real. Be you. Eva's family photography isn't about creating traditional 'portraiture' with artificial lighting and poses, it's about having an awesome time so that you have honest, joyful, real images about what family means to you.
