Renee Edwards


Wedding and Lifestyle Photographer

I have always been a creative personality, for as long as I can remember. I recall spending afternoons with my sweet Nana, baking, painting and sewing. Those afternoons, although I will never get them back, were some of the best memories of my childhood. It was my Nana who taught me the importance of working for the love of it. She was a baker, and she made the most incredible cakes. Each one even more beautiful than the one before.

As I reached college, I found my love for design and the arts, but it wasn’t until I started my creative journey in Wellington I realised just how much I loved documenting moments. Upon completing my degree in Graphic Design and returning to the beautiful Nelson, I accidentally fell into the wedding industry, working on a variety of projects including stationery and signage design, styled shoots and Wild Hearts Wedding Fairs. I fell in love with people in love, the warm fuzzy feeling I witnessed at every wedding inspired me to pick up my camera and shoot.

I’m a photographer who will always aim to capture a couple’s story in a way that is unique, with an approach that is un-intrusive, natural and journalistic. Because truly at the core of it all, that’s what photography is. It’s about collecting moments that perhaps would have otherwise gone unnoticed. Those fleeting moments that you look back on in the decades to come with a warm heart.

So whether you’re looking to elope, throw a surprise wedding, enjoy an intimate backyard gathering or get married on a mountain top, I would love to tell your story. Let’s grab a coffee, I can’t wait to meet you.
