WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY

DOCUMENTARY  STYLE

MEET YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER

 I fell in love documenting other peoples stories, and I have now photographed many weddings and still feel incredibly lucky that this is what I do . When it comes to weddings, I am your wedding genius. If you want me there to laugh with, cry with, dance with and just to have an all out good time then, I'm there for all of that. Capturing your story is what matters to me. I want you to have an incredible experience and to have photos that you will love forever. Let me help you create your story

DARE TO BE DIFFERENT

Hey There, I'm Carmen - your wedding and elopement photographer covering Christchurch and Queenstown. As your photographer, I'm not just there on the day of your wedding, I am so much more. I want to help you prepare and plan for your wedding day ensuring that your day runs smoothly and on time. I will gently offer advice and guide you to ensure that you get incredible images and that no moments go un-missed. I want to make sure that you will look back at your wedding photos and not just remember the day but also how it felt! These are your beautiful
memories that you want to have for a lifetime!

 My style can be summed up as unobtrusive, documentary, emotive and with a touch of romance. I'm not about awkward traditional posing but I will gently guide you into falling into each other naturally! I get it, most people feel awkward in front of the camera, hey, even I do! I promise, I will make you feel so comfortable, and we will have an epic time as well. Also I have created several client guides that cover tips and tricks, "How To Create Your Timeline" and this is a big one, you don't want to get this part wrong!! I have so many goodies that I can send over to you that will help plan and create your day.

Your story is unique and that is what I want to capture. This is about your story and how you want it told! It's not about me, it's your special day and together we will capture what's important to you! I will be there to offer gentle advice and give you encouragement along the way. We want to get the candid moments, the in-betweens and all the emotions that you can reflect back on forever.

For all of my couples it is my mission to help them create a day that is about them and also at the end of the day you want to have the confidence that you've made all the right decisions. 

If you invite me to your wedding I promise, I will be your cheer leader, your champagne glass filler upper, shoo the jitters away and offer gentle advice. I've got you,  I'll take all the anxiety and stress out of the day for you.
