About us



Bold, bright & beautiful – No boring wedding photos! The Official Photographers are Aaron & Shannon – a laid back husband & wife team from the Waikato, New Zealand. We just want you to have a damn good time and have some cool people there to capture it. We are fun, make the portraits not awkward and can assure your parents all the moments in between are covered.

You might see us having a boogie on the dance floor whilst taking sweet party shots.

Together we specialize in relaxed, creative Wedding Photography.

Waikato wedding Photographer 


We met in 2011, when event photography and landscape dates with our cameras turned into an everyday treat. Aaron has a background in Engineering / Landscape Photography & I was a Journalist so together we have that perfect 'mix' for creating something epic.

A good bottle of Pinot Gris with friends, a little (or a lot) of cheese, online shopping here and there (& everywhere), plus an adventure on the weekend is Shannon to a T. Oh and dressing up her girl Vea (8 month old)! Aaron can be found with only the BEST coffee in his hand, DIY-ing anything or teaching our 4 year old how to mow the lawn. We have a German Shepherd Doggo & Cat who are also a big part of our family too.
