My Services...


“love one another & you will be happy. It’s as simple and as difficult as that...”

michael leunig

I only do a certain number of weddings a year, so please do enquire as soon as you can, even if you have yet to firm up your plans.

I have a reportage, journalistic style for weddings, so please come & talk to me & let me show you examples. It is important for you to choose a photographer whose style suits you!

I weigh the cost of weddings heavily in favour of capturing the best possible images on the day. No compromise on the time taken to prepare & create your ultimate images, means that the best raw material is available to create beautiful albums. Then, if budgets squeak, it is possible to initially create a simple package but come back later for more elaborate ones.

Here you will find some samples of my work, all the costs so there are no surprises, a booking form to book yourself in (or a gift purchase) & some preparation notes. Simply fill the booking form in or, if it’s easier, just call me!

A range of albums can be supplied at different price points


I require 20% (of the total package) as a booking fee, then the full amount of the TIME Pack 8 weeks prior to the event. Both amounts are non-refundable, unless a cancellation is made more than 2 months prior to the wedding date, in which case 50% of the booking fee will be repaid. All other items ordered are payable at least 3 days prior to the event.

Weekends & evenings are in high demand, so I do need the deposit paid before any weekend meeting can take place (after the preliminary planning meeting).

All items (prints / albums etc) included in the packages, must be ordered & collected within 1 calendar year of the wedding. Orders given over one year after the event will be charged for at the current rate on the published price list.

I take immense care in planning & preparation.

Weddings anywhere in the world can be catered for, but for outside Auckland please do ask for a quote to cover the additional time & travel costs.

I ensure that I introduce myself to the priest and/or celebrant & the management of the chosen reception location. Also, any other involved parties that will have any impact on the smooth running of the day, like the chauffeur, florist & pianist. Not forgetting, of course the bride & groom! I ensure that any plans anyone might be involved in are discussed in advance whenever possible.
