About Me

We’re gonna get deep here

As a wedding photographer, there’s just something about love that I can’t get enough of, and I treasure the many new friends I have made along each very personal journey that I am so lucky to be a part of. Hired to capture what is possibly the most momentous day of your life, I will seamlessly fit into your plans. Specialising in engagement photography in NZ, I am dedicated to capturing candid wedding moments in Christchurch. With a passion for Canterbury Wedding Photography, I strive to be your go-to professional wedding photographer. Let me document the beauty of your love story through my lens, ensuring every moment is as timeless and unique as your journey together.

I’ve gained a reputation for taking timeless photographs – I specialise in seeking out those special candid moments, preserving them for an eternity for you and future generations to look back on. I like to think my approach is a bit more genuine – I strive to capture the warmth, tenderness, adoration and raw emotion as it unfolds in front of me, rather than constructing it through a series of rigid poses. Nothing beats real, authentic love and affection. I’d be honoured to photograph your wedding, please enquire here.

The Backstory - I was lucky enough to buy my first camera over a decade ago to take away on holiday, although the camera never left “auto” mode on the trip it started something, a passion, an obsession, a challenge to always grow and better my photography. Then ultimately taking shots became a career!!

I'm completely self-taught, apart from countless hours at the 'school of Google' and the guidance of some incredible mentors along the way. Photography, to me, is an art form where I've always aimed to carve my own path rather than follow the crowd. It's been a journey of personal style and vision, and thankfully, it paid off becoming a career!

My photography started chasing stars and epic landscapes, and somehow, 350,000 Facebook folks decided to follow the adventure. Winter's my time to geek out on astrophotography, snagging some cool nods from NZ Geographic and the NZ Astro Competition over the years (yeah, those stars aligned!). Some big names like Spark and BNZ have even jazzed up their scenes with my shots – stars and corporates, who knew?

But when wedding season rolls around, that's when I switch gears from astro to love stories. I teach photography workshops too – spreading the photo love one shutter click at a time. So, while the winter months are for stargazing through my lens, come wedding season, it's all about capturing those heartfelt moments.

After shooting a few weddings for some mates, I realised they’re pretty choice! It’s a sweet gig – making new friends, being part of an epic day, enjoying delicious cake, and capturing couples who are totally smitten.

How about we catch up for a chat or meet? Let’s put our ideas together and create something awesome!

The Experience



He made it so fun and easy.
We received our photos way sooner than I expected and going through them all was incredible as they all look amazing!
His talent with lighting and capturing the mood of the moment was perfect!
Definitely highly recommend Paul.

The Experience



We also had our engagement shoot with Paul and loved the photos so much! It was great practice for the wedding and nice to get to know Paul. He was really comfortable to be around and we loved his mix of natural and posed photos. It was a super bright and sunny on our wedding day but the photos turned out better than we could have ever hoped for. Highly recommend Paul!
