New Zealand Wedding & commercial photographer

I’m passionate about creative storytelling. Inspired by real people, moments and stories. I live for the adventure and have travelled all over New Zealand chasing sunrises and making memories. To me, I believe in capturing raw and authentic moments through my photography.  I love weddings and elopements! Telling unscripted love stories of couples and creating timeless photos is my favourite part of being a wedding photographer. It’s important to connect and experience a journey together.

 I’ve also worked with local and international brands as a commercial photographer. Brands that aim to push others to see the world a little differently than most. After all, life is just one grand adventure!

 Are you ready to tell your story?


& Emotive Storytelling



You deserve a wedding day that is entirely authentic to you. As your wedding photographer, I snap not only what the day looked like but also how it felt. You want to look at your photos years from now and relive all the big moments and little ones!


It may be capturing a wildly romantic adventure for your elopement wedding or using innovative narrative to bring your brand to life with epic visual content.

Are you thinking about learning photography? I’ve put my passion for it and the outdoors together by offering workshops that take your landscape photography to the next level!

"Wow wow wow! We had so much fun with him at our engagement shoot we just knew that the wedding day was going to be full of laughs and great photos and it definitely was. Jinal is such a fun person to have around, he makes those awkward photos feel so much more comfortable and made it so easy for us to pose! Our bridal party loved him and thought he was great! Our photos are AMAZING! 100% would recommend him to anybody!! Thank you again!!"

"Our company Find My Ride NZ worked with Jinal to create outdoor content. Jinal had the opportunity to take some truly beautiful shots. The pictures taken were able to show our vehicle in a different light, and as a result reached more customers than our previous social media posts. I found Jinal to be professional and efficient in regards to time management. Through working with Jinal, we increased our breadth of consumer reach, and now have a larger market share with those consumers who are looking to head outdoors. As the director of Find My Ride NZ, I want to thank Jinal for his work!"

"We partnered with Jinal last year. From initial contact through to completion of project, Jinal performed with the high professionalism. He interpreted our brief for the shoot and produced high quality images that we were able to share across our social media channels. All content was shared in a timely manner and clearly laid out for us to download and repurpose. I highly recommend working with Jinal for content based projects and we can’t wait to host him on our experiences again soon!!"

"What impressed me most about Jinal is his passion and enthusiasm for photography which clearly reflects in his pictures. He did an amazing photo shoot for me. The food photographs especially have captured amazing natural details of the food. He is an exceptional photographer and I would recommend him without hesitation."
