About me!

Hey I'm Jess

 

New Zealand Wedding and Portrait Photographer. I'm based in the
winterless Far North on a wild beach and I'm mum to two rad kids,
step-mum to Ruby and partner to Ben (Patchwork family we are!).

I was passionate about photography from a young age and it seemed only natural that it was the direction I headed after I finished school. I
bought my first Nikon camera at 17 yrs and started working in a
photo-lab. At the age of 20 yrs I packed my bags and ventured around
the world, traveling and exploring and learning more about the
different avenues of photography. I came home and lived in Queenstown and worked as an adventure photographer until the arrival of my son Jayden, then I shifted lifestyles and moved to the Bay Of Islands and setup my wedding photography business, almost 17 years ago! I now have a studio based in Kerikeri township.

 

Being asked to document couples on their most important day is pretty damn amazing. I get to witness real love most weekends in the summer and curate authentic stories with my camera. I share the laughs, the tears, the emotions and the most intimate moments of life and I get to make some incredible connections with couples and individuals. I capture the the then and now so later you can remember your story and feel the way it was told.

 

If you are looking for creative, authentic and relaxed photography for
your big day and you think we are a good fit, get in touch, I'd love
to hear from you.
