Kia ora, I'm Celia thanks for dropping in.   

Wedding Photography

If you've just got engaged - big congratulations and I'll bet you're super excited about your upcoming wedding.

I'm a specialist wedding photographer in Central Otago, Queenstown, Wanaka, Wellington, Wairarapa and Kapiti.

There are 4 key things to consider when choosing your wedding photographer - personality, experience, photography style and budget. 

Personality and experience are vital when you're looking for that special photographer who will take away the stress from your wedding photography.   I have nearly 10 years experience in wedding photography and love helping you decide on your photography style and can offer all sorts of tips for planning the timing of your day.   I like to give you time before the wedding so that by the time we get to the wedding day we're already old friends.  

I personalise your wedding photography experience and treat every couple as special friends.  All my photography packages are tailored to suit your day be it all day, boutique, petite, 2nd time, back yard or elopement weddings.

My photography style is relaxed, joyful and richly coloured, capturing the story, emotion, individuality and special people of your day.  I do though alter my style to suit you and the day.  If you want a dramatic, moody or soft light look I create and edit, within the bounds of the day, to reflect the look and feel you want.   

When the vows are made, the food is eaten and wine drunk, when the dress is back in the cupboard, it's the photos that you'll return to again and again, to relive all the special moments of your day.  It's worth spending time to get exactly the photography you want because these photos outlast all the other parts of the day and will be shared and treasured forever.

Portraits, Headshots, Branding and Family

I do Headshot photography, Personal Branding, Portrait and Family photography in Central Otago, Queenstown, Wanaka, Wellington, Wairarapa and Kapiti. 

A Headshot is a head and shoulders image for use on your website, CV, or profile.  

Personal Branding images are an extension of a Headshot - they don't just put a face to a name, they tell a story about you, your style and your business. 

For Performing Artists I offer a different kind of Headshot session which displays your ability to portray specific theatrical characters and persona, as well as you. 

For families it's a big deal getting the family together all in one place.  So when you do it's wonderful to capture the memories with your significant people in a Family portrait.  Special occasions, milestones, Christmas, Easter and holiday get togethers are all great times for a Family portrait.  

Ballet, Dance and Theatre

With a long career in the arts as theatre director, festival director and photographer, I've been privileged to photograph many of the worlds great dance, theatre and music artists.  I'm honoured to be one of the official photographers for the Royal New Zealand Ballet and specialise in photography for dance and performing artists.  

Yes I do actually live in all three place - Central Otago, Wellington and Waiheke Island.  As you can see 'I have camera and travel'.
