It’s pretty simple really…I just bloody love photographing weddings.
Every wedding is unique & I’m here for all of it.
I’ll be your right hand woman throughout your day & I try & fit in as much as I can…basically just an extra wedding party member. I capture all the major stuff as well as all the weird details & ridiculous antics. If your groom is going to cry I’ll most definitely be getting that on camera & I live for hiding in bushes & snapping away, I’m your personal paparazzi , I swear it’s not as creepy as it sounds!
Check out the galleries and if you love what you see get in contact and we can meet for a coffee/beer/snacks and see if we’re a match made in heaven
I’ve designed a range of different packages to suit whatever day you have planned, I can adapt these packages to what you need adding extra hours, extra photographers etc so lets have a chat about what is most important to you & make sure you walk away getting exactly what you wanted.
Beautiful luxury albums starting from $1600
Handcrafted by a kiwi company Queensberry, these are the absolute bee knees of wedding albums. Legacy albums made to last a lifetime & I design them too-just one more thing you DON’T have to worry about!
Engagement shoots starting from $750
An engagement shoot can be a great idea to calm the nerves about getting your photos taken before your wedding. It’s a chance for you to get to know me & how I work so you know exactly what to expect on your big day. Bonus is you can use your engagement shoot photos for your Save the Dates & websites!
For the couple that wants it all
Most of my weddings are Taranaki based but I will travel wherever, I love exploring new places & if I get to photograph a wedding while there it’s an added bonus. There will be travel fees associated with this of course so contact me & we can have a chat about this.
Every single couple feels this way! Most of us aren’t naturals in front of the camera (including me so I get it!!) My style lends more towards less stiff posing, you won’t be standing in one place staring at the camera…there will be lots of movement & I alot of my direction will be getting you to interact with one another which shouldn’t be hard, you just got married right??? If you’re still feeling worried perhaps have a chat to me about booking an engagement shoot pre wedding so you can get used to me & getting your photo taken. And lastly, just about every wedding party I’ve photographed have come away from the portraits saying “that wasn’t so bad! I actually enjoyed it”
This can be a tough one for couples when looking at all the options. Most couples book the 10 hour package with me purely because they get everything covered from a bit of getting ready prep right through to some dance floor antics. However, every couple is different & it comes down to having a little chat & deciding on what you feel is most important to you. My packages are structured in a way that you can decide when I start-whether that is early in the morning to capture more getting ready things or just before ceremony so that I stay later at night it’s up to you. We’ll chat at length about this during the booking stage & I can give you some ideas & tips with this as well.
Probably the biggest concern with wedding days is the weather! Most couples will have a wet weather back up for the ceremony & then it’s just a case of being creative & finding cool buildings with awnings or doorways etc. Most of the time it is usually just light rain & I’m more than happy to traipse about- my camera is waterproofed for light rain & I bring clear umbrellas that can look pretty cool in photos as well. You can also get quite creative with rain & lighting at night so there’s that as well! If it helps, out of the 6 years Ive been shooting weddings I’ve only had 3 weddings where it has been torrential, non stop rain so that’s pretty good odds I think!! At the end of the day, you still get to marry your other half & rain doesn’t get in the way of a good party so let’s just roll with it & have some fun!
The only list I need from you is the list of family/friend shots you would like for the time we carve out for this. I’ve been photographing weddings long enough to know which moments need to be captured & I have a process & flow that I follow to get all the important shots. There are some pretty crazy shot lists floating around Pinterest & the likes and while I know the intention behind them if you choose the right photographer & trust them you shouldn’t have to worry about them getting all the important moments captured. It’s pretty much a given that we’re going to capture you walking down the aisle, your first kiss etc and having big extensive lists can really damage the flow of a photographer during the day & we’ll most likely miss something as we’re trying to remember everything on the list. In saying that, if there is something really important that must be captured which is outside of a normal wedding timeline please let me know before the day so I can make sure I capture it for you.
I want to hear all about your plans & get the ball rolling, fill out my contact form here & expect to hear back from me within a day, I can't wait to hear from you!Get in touch
“Hanna is an absolute wonder. She is the loveliest person to work with and captured our wedding day beautifully! She made both of us feel so relaxed in front of the camera, guiding us when we had no idea what we were doing and alway working to meet any personal request thrown at her too! We had so much fun working with Hanna and couldn't be happier with the results. Highly recommend!”Sophie & James
