Meet Heather & Doug

“Hi there… We are a husband and wife wedding photography team, based out of Christchurch on the beautiful South Island of New Zealand.

We’re known for loving rainbows and traveling the globe, excessive jumping shots, and thoroughly enjoying our time with family and friends… and we’re a tad obsessed with our two boys as well :)

And that’s what we like to bring to every photoshoot and wedding…
Colour, adventure, energy, and what we like to call connectitude.”

Weddings & Services

As there is so much that goes into planning a wedding, we’ve put together a series of tips and guides to help you to plan your wedding and choose a wedding photographer to suit your own unique tastes and style.

Head through to our Pricing Packages to see what we have to offer you for your big day.

A wedding is such a happy and joyous event. On paper, weddings can be quite similar to each other – walking up the aisle, exchanging of rings, making your vows – but in practice, it’s amazing at how different one wedding can be to another. Every couple is so unique and with the vast array of weddings we have captured, we make our biggest effort to let the photography reflect the personalities of our clients. We are friendly, vibrant people who love each other, love wedding photography, and most of all.. love each new individual client that walks through our doors. (Read more about Heather & Doug)

Rave Reviews

Heather and Doug…you guys are incredible. You have photographed our engagement, our wedding, and we have had multiple family photo sessions with you and you continue to blow us away with your amazing photos. On our wedding day you put us at ease instantly and we had great fun.

You work perfectly as a team and captured not only the main parts of our wedding but all of the little details that could often be forgotten down the track. We always get comments about how incredible our wedding photos are and we really can’t thank you enough.

We look forward to having you capture other special moments in our lives and would recommend you to anyone looking for a photographer.”

It was important for us to have wedding photographers who were as relaxed about our day as we were, and who knew how to get the meaningful (and candid) shots that I had admired for so many years. We loved how easily Heather and Doug fitted into our day, and documented the special moments without us even noticing! We were both nervous about being photographed all day, but had so much fun, and felt so relaxed in front of the camera.

Our final wedding collection is perfect! There are so many photos for us to choose from that have perfectly captured the essence of our day. Having both Heather and Doug photograph our day was fantastic too – it suited us perfectly, and now we have two different perspectives of the same day.
