Our Approach

For us, wedding photography is all about feeling. We listen to your day. We dig deep and find its pulse, the beat and the rhythm, to remind you of the atmosphere. The crackle of anticipation in the morning, the little people stealing the limelight with all their cute, the HECK-YEAH feeling you get straight after the I Dos, the joy of being squeezed half to death by your best mate, and dancing the night away at the best party of your life…

We want to make images that mean something to you.

Our style is story driven. That means hands off, relaxed and focused on the natural flow of your day. We’ll always put that first, and give you space to be present with the people you love. Space doesn’t mean I (Kim) will stand far off with the biggest lens you’ve ever seen, removed from the atmosphere of your day. I’ll be close by, mixing with your nearest & dearest and immersing myself right where your story unfolds, so that when you look back at your images you’ll be reminded of what it felt like to be there. That’s everything.

We also believe that couples deserve some killer shots of just the two of you together on your day. I’ll help with finding great light and location, but this time is about being present with another, finding space to connect, not about performance in front of the camera.

New Zealand Weddings & Worldwide Travel

We’re Derby Wedding Photographers but travel is no problem. In fact, we’re used to it. We make frequent visits back to our homeland of New Zealand – a long journey which requires passing through several countries!

I am more than happy to travel to join you on your big day, and it may not be as expensive as you would imagine – especially if you’re getting married in New Zealand. We go back for long stints over southern summers to see people and shoot weddings while we’re there. And we’ll take any excuse to go home-home so our boys can hang out with their cousins and with Poppy & Gigi (Channie’s folks) and Grandpa & Yaya (Kim’s parents). Please get in touch and we can explore travel options.
