Elopement weddings in New Zealand are becoming super trendy.  They are intimate and have the beauty of being in an epic location anywhere you like while saving you from inviting that Uncle Bob you haven’t seen in years. As your elopement wedding photographer, my zest for adventure and love of travelling allows me to help plan your wildly romantic experience. Whether it’s a Heli wedding on the beautiful mountains of Queenstown or the pristine lakes of the South Island. Let’s adventure together and capture the perfect elopement wedding that’s meaningful to you!

Traditional weddings are great, but let’s face it a big wedding isn’t for everyone! They can be stressful, expensive and downright daunting to plan. Elopements give you the chance to have an adventure, explore somewhere new and create unique memories. Basically, doing things your way, but together. Say your I ‘do’s on a mountain, beach, lake… you name it!

New Zealand is one of the best elopement destinations in the world! It’s surreal landscape from crystal blue lakes to snowy mountain tops makes it the perfect background for intimate weddings. I’ve explored New Zealand a fair bit to know about the best locations to tie the knot! Here are some of my absolute favs!


Queenstown – Cecil Peak, The Remarkables, Lochnagar, Lake Isobel

Wanaka – Coromandel Peak, Dragonfly Peak, Fog Peak

Canterbury – Mount Cook National Park, Tasman Glacier

Tongariro National Park

Fiordland – Milford Sound, Lake Erskine

As your elopement wedding photographer, this is where I come in!  You won’t be worried about what your guests will be doing or why the band hasn’t arrived yet, we can focus on just you two. I’m here to put you in touch with the best vendors and piece together your magical experience. From how to style the day, when to plan the ceremony, scouting the location of your dreams and choosing the best time of the day for those ­­banger photos!
