Whether you envision a large or small wedding, an elopement or destination wedding, nothing gives me more satisfaction than capturing the raw beauty of each couple on their special day - allowing me to share this with the people that care about them the most.”
Hi, I'm Keryn,
I'm an Auckland based wedding and editorial photographer. My partner Jamie and I have two little girls, they are loads of fun, very strong willed and will most definitely keep us on our toes in their teens.
Photography is a massive part of my life both at home and
for work. I love to capture moments and tell stories in a captivating, creative and organic way. I love exploring new places and feel incredibly lucky I get to travel allot for my job.
Do you do albums and additional prints?
What advice would you give to the camera-shy couple?
I get asked this allot, in fact so many of my clients are very camera shy. My advice is to drink Champagne, eat food, have fun. Enjoy the party you have spent months planning. When the light gets really nice, let’s go for a walk and put all your focus into the person who just became your forever.
Don’t look at the camera. It’s not about smiling, it’s about having an amazing time and capturing that. My experience allows me to help ease camera anxiety by knowing when to push or step back.
Yes, absolutely. I'm here to help you all the way through, from wedding prep to the final product. There is a whole range options. Please get in touch, I'll send you my detailed price guide.
There is also a print store attached to your online gallery you'll receive with all wedding packages, so family and friends can easily order prints, and have to them delivered to their door with a few easy steps.
Printing has a life, a tangible beauty and something wonderfully characteristic that you just don’t feel from an image on a screen.
I print my photographs for couples on hand cut Hahnemühle fine art paper which give an almost three-dimensional appearance and colour depth when matched with high end inkjet printing.
The Fine Art Books that I produce are second to none. Thanks to my supplier, Folio Albums, the matt paper books are stunningly handmade in New Zealand and designed to last a lifetime. Of course, these are an investment, but one I recommend more than anything else when it comes to preserving your wedding day memories.
What is your refund policy around Covid 19?
I understand it's a scary time to commit to booking vendors, I myself am in the process of planning a wedding. Many of my clients have been affected by Covid and I have been working alongside them with changing dates, downsizing to the elopement package and have refunded deposits when necessary. I am here to help.
As a photographer whose work is grounded in the documentary style, what INSPIRES YOU?
are you fully vaccinated?
Mainly because I get asked a lot by NZ couples.
Yes, I am and I'm also very excited to be taking international bookings again now we can travel again.
There’s power in being able to tell a visual story through photography – it is the authenticity – the authentic recording of an event. I’ve definitely been inspired by other documentary photographers like Brassai and Annie Leibovitz – there is a whole world of incredible documentary photographers out there. Essentially, it was what made me fall in love with photography in the first place. I have always been drawn into the timelessness of it, no matter what the era, no matter what the subject.
are AVAILABLE WORLDWIDE?
Yes, I am and am very excited to be taking international bookings again. Destination weddings is one of the reasons I do what I do, traveling is incredibly important me. New destinations, meeting new people, documenting different cultures is such a wonderful aspect of my job. You perhaps have never meet anyone that loves airports as much as I do.
What is your advice to couples getting married?
I’m such an advocate pre-planning! I believe the more planning you do, the more relaxed you are on the day (boring advice I know)! I also suggest that my clients do whatever they can to lower their stress levels on their wedding day. This really helps you enjoy the day and be present. I also highly recommend doing sunset photoshoots on your wedding day - my clients love to take the time out to do these. My couples usually stay on for little moment of stillness after, which ends up being a beautiful memory for life!
