LET'S CONNECT

The milestones, big or small, that we share in life go by before we even have time to process them; my photographs allow you to look back and replay each memory as if it were still freshly engraved in your mind. I never want you to feel as though you're being forced to do something that isn't you- I want each session to be fun, to allow you to let loose and make you pause in order to truly connect and feel the love you both share. It's a moment in time that allows you to just truly be yourselves and leave having fallen a little more in love with one another. 

So wherever you want to go, I’m there. If you want to get married by the ocean or elope high up on a deserted hill, just tell me your love story and I’ll tell it back to you through photographs.

Intimate Wedding + Elopement Photographer

South Canterbury + beyond

HI, I'M KATE!

I photograph intimate weddings and elopements through a documentary and storytelling approach. By blending my love for New Zealand's expansive landscapes with weddings + elopements, I create images that become a lasting legacy for the couples I work with. While I call Twizel in the Mackenzie District home, I love photographing throughout the South Canterbury surrounding regions.

KIND WORDS

“Kate was an absolute dream to work with and we now have beautiful images we will treasure forever. Kate was very professional yet down to earth. I sent her some sample images of what I liked and she totally nailed it, even going over and beyond to try out different ideas which turned out so cool. She made us feel comfortable during the whole session. And we wouldn’t hesitate to book her again in the near future.”
