We are wedding storytellers. Our collections and prices are based on our experience, reputation and skill for documenting an unrepeatable moment in time in a candid and natural way, and for bringing our unique way of working with people to your big day. We don't set limits on how many hours we'll be with you, because not all weddings fit into the same box. Together, we've shot more than 600 weddings in Hawke's Bay and beyond, and we continue to be the region's leading wedding photographers because we know how to create images that aren't just about how you looked, but how you felt.

And we don't just bring our expertise to your day, we continue to apply it in the edit suite afterwards, taking your images further with in-house professional editing, retouching and album design. For us, your wedding day is a journey that starts with fantastic communication and planning, continues with creativity and personality on the day itself and ends with brilliantly finished wedding photography that tells your day professionally - the way it deserves to be.

Other Cool Stuff...

Albums

Our albums are designed by us  - the people who know your images best - to tell your story originally & beautifully. They are handcrafted in New Zealand by Queensberry -  widely considered one of the world's top album companies, and available only to professional photographers. With photos printed on Kodak Silver Halide paper and hand-cut ivory mats, our albums become a family heirloom.

While they are optional, we really believe they are a hugely important way to finish your wedding story, which is why we include a $100 voucher with your photos to go towards this investment.*

Extra pages - $50

24 page flushmount parent-size album (same design layout) - $325

Press books

Press books are a great way to tell your wedding story in a documentary fashion. Large layflat, flush-mount pages allow us full creative flair to showcase your favourite images across seamless, 2-page spreads with rigid pages. Print-to-the-edge silver halide paper is finished with a stain and water-resistant lustre finish.

24 page (12 spreads) 11x14"  Press book with presentation box - $975

* We design albums over winter/spring & MUST have your image selection list by the end of May.  We can work with you on the design remotely with digital proofs (one free design edit then $50/edit). Due to insurance/tax issues, we only post albums & press books within NZ and ideally prefer to have them collected.

Pre-wedding shoots

$250

Increasingly, couples are choosing to meet before the ceremony for their creative session with the bridal party so the photography can be enjoyed without time pressures. Most importantly, it allows newlyweds to be with their guests before the reception without having to leave for photographs. An added benefit is that during this period, we are able to spend the time shooting you and your guests together in a candid, unposed way. Of course this means we start our prep photos earlier...and you get lots more photos!

Unveiled Shoot

$595

Watch out boys - this one's for you! If you're a bride who has put your heart and soul into looking fantastic in your wedding dress, why not create some beautiful photographic art without it? Our unveiled shoots are private, sexy, tasteful and loads of fun. They make the perfect gift to present to your husband-to-be the night before the wedding, and the shoot can be timed to make the most of your hair and makeup trail. Visit the 'unveiled' page on our website and see what some of our girls have to say about the experience. And remember - this isn't for brides who look like models. You are already the most beautiful woman in the world to your future husband. This is about capturing you and your body in a way that makes you even more confident (and hot!) in his eyes.

Includes:

- Studio shoot in 3 outfits of your choice (something pure with your veil if you have one, something naughty and something else you love!)

- Extensive but natural digital post-production including body toning and smoothing if you want it.

- 15 6x9" prints, presented in a folio to give to your fiancee

- 15 images high resolution on your wedding USB

Additional retouched images: $25/each.

Engagement Session

$595

There can be a big gap between your engagement and celebrating your wedding. An engagement session captures you as a couple in a relaxed, informal way at that special time. It is also a great way to spend some time with Eva or Michelle so you feel more confident getting photographed on your wedding day. In our experience, engagement shoots always result in incredible wedding photography.

Includes:

- A location shoot at a place special to you or suggested by us.

- A 20 page (10 leaves) 8x8" hardcover brag book of photographer's picks from the session

- All images from the shoot professionally edited and supplied high resolution on USB

Mid-Week &Winter Weddings

If a big white wedding day isn't part of your dream (or your budget!) but you still want beautiful, professional photography, then please get in touch with us to talk about how we can tailor an elopement wedding experience or a small but special photography coverage for you between Monday and Thursday during our season (September-May) or any time during winter (June-August).

Out-of-town weddings

Although we are Hawke's Bay-based wedding photographers, we love to travel and see and shoot new places, so get in touch with your plans. For most NZ destinations we add $500 to cover travel and accommodation costs. We will arrive the day before the wedding, location scout and then meet with you to go over the grand master plan. Please note that out of town weddings are available for bookings with Eva and Andrew.


If you have any other questions, don't forget to check out our Q&A page, and please don't hesitate to fire through any unanswered questions to us - there isn't much we can't help you with when it comes to planning an incredible wedding day, and lending our experience is all part of what we do.
