I am Jess and I’m chuffed you're considering me as your photographer! Whatever your plan is - portraits, elopement, intimate wedding, destination wedding or simply an adventurous session - I'm up for it! I am inspired by spontaneous moments, emotion and intimate connections. My style is not too posed or forced, but images that really tell your unique story and bring back all of your happy emotions.
I live near the sea in the Far North of NZ in small town Kerikeri with my awesome kids, Piper and Jayden, our dog, ponies and cats!
Originally from the UK (way back!), I immigrated to Australia and then shifted to NZ in my late teens and then for the next 8 years I flip-flopped between NZ, Australia, Europe, Asia and USA and then back to Queenstown to feed the adventure in my heart. My journey as a photographer started as a fascination with my grandma's Pentax SLR when I was 11 years old and developed into a passion for documenting moments and emotions in a photograph, pursuing that desire until it eventually became a lifelong career. With a background in adventure photography, I photographed my first wedding, sometime 20 yrs ago and I haven’t looked back since. Being asked to document couples on their most important day is pretty damn amazing. I get to witness real love most summer weekends and curate incredible, authentic stories with my camera. I get to share the laughs, the tears, the emotions and the most intimate moments of life and I get to meet some amazing couples and individuals. In my spare time I enjoy hanging with my kids and partner Ben, chilling at the beach, adventuring, camping, great coffee and catching up with friends!
If you're an outgoing couple and you're looking for a photographer who will create artistic and romantic images and capture the essence of your love - contact me!
