We take photos and make films full of romance, love and laughter with some stunning mountains and a touch of adventure thrown in!

Hi, I’m Holly and I am blessed to live in one of the most beautiful places on earth, Queenstown – New Zealand.

I love telling stories. I always have and always will. I started working as a journalist and shooting professionally for New Zealand magazines and newspapers in 1999, and then went on to work in TV at the BBC in the UK. I made documentaries, and was lucky enough to travel the world for work. I even lived with a family of Turkish goat herders for a film (it’s a long story), and I learned a great deal about story-telling, about observing what happens and always being ready to capture that pivotal moment.

I’m also the daughter of two talented artists, so I love getting creative and my photos and films have a fresh, dynamic feel.

I think of myself more like a guest with a camera, rather than the ‘official photographer.’ I really like to get to know my couples so on the day everyone can relax and I can get on with capturing imagery that will last lifetime.

  • What do you love most about what you do? Meeting people and being part of all that luuuuurve.
  • What gets you out of bed in the morning? My 5 year old daughter!
  • Where did your passion for what you do start? When I was 14 and my Mum gave me her old Pentax Spotmatic SLR camera. The light metre was broken so I had to work out all my settings manually in my head, and I went on to travel all through South East Asia with that camera. I loved it. I've always had a camera by my side since.
  • What is your advice for a healthy, long lasting relationship? Gosh. Honesty, patience, kindness, knowing how to have a good laugh, partying together, lots of affection, and being a team.
  • What is your best advice to couples planning their wedding? Don't sweat the small stuff and make it about you. As long as you both turn up on the day and say what needs to be said to each other, then the rest is just window dressing.
