LAKE TEKAPO + PUKAKI PHOTOGRAPHER

Hey all, I'm Kate! Your Lake Tekapo + Pukaki wedding + elopement photographer. I'm based in the heart of the Mackenzie District, Twizel. I moved to Twizel with my partner, Brad end of 2022 and completely fell in love with the endless views of mountain peaks and emerald lakes. Less than 40 minutes away from Twizel, is the beautiful Lake Tekapo + Pukaki - both absolute gems of locations to get married at!

Lake Tekapo is loved by many and visited often no matter what season. From the vibrant colours of the lupins in spring to snowy southerns alps in winter to the warm golden hues in autumn, Lake Tekapo offers every seasonal backdrop, so you can choose the perfect time for your dream wedding. Not to mention Tekapo is a designated dark sky reserve - imagine saying vows under a blanket of stars!

Lake Pukaki's view of Mount Cook is unmatched, making it an extraordinary location to get married at. This lake offers you a sense of tranquility and seclusion, making it a perfect location for the couples who want to get married in privacy.

Most wedding couples choose to visit both Lake Tekapo + Pukaki as the views are iconic and a must-see while visiting the Mackenzie District.

THE EXPERIENCE

MY STYLE OF PHOTOGRAPHY

I intentionally edit my images to have a natural and timeless look that savours the beauty of your surroundings, rather than overshadowing it. This way, your images will be authentic and heartfelt, allowing you to relive the essence of your special day. My top priority is to capture the day as you and I see it, ensuring that it reflects your unique relationship. During our time together, you can expect to feel relaxed and at ease, as we take each moment in slowly and savour it. After all, this is a day to remember forever – so why rush? X

KIND WORDS

some more

Kate was amazing to work with, she is super easy to communicate with and no question or request was silly or too hard. Kate made us feel super comfortable and at ease which really reflected in our photos and the way our day was captured was more than we could have ever asked for. We are still receiving comments from our guests about how friendly and approachable they all found Kate, and how it really felt like she was apart of the family <3 We can’t thank Kate enough for being such a special part of our big day and we recommend her to anyone looking to have an intimate wedding or elopement!
