Wedding photography is an investment, photographs are the only memories left that we can look at 50 years after your wedding day. It is very important that you choose the right one for you, the style of our work should fit the look you are after and you can jive with us comfortably during the day. We believe that the best recipe to good photographs is the connection between you and your photographers, the worst feeling is be photographed by a complete stranger, which can be a little awkward right? We always meet with our potential clients first, chill out and have coffee or a few drinks while getting to know each other and discuss your wedding plans. It is a good chance for you to see a full gallery of recent weddings so you have an idea of what we deliver to our clients. Then when you feel that we are the right one for you, then let's start that journey! :)

Our Clients Experience
“I don't think there are words to express how over the moon I am with my experience with Ralph. His work is beyond talented & he really captured every raw, happy moment at our wedding. The man himself & his amazing partner were both so lovely & fun, which made everyone feel really comfortable and meant his photos came out incredibly natural. From the first meeting till the arrival of our photos, he made the whole experience extremely easy, straight forward and made sure to keep us in the loop the whole time.”
“When it came to wedding planning time, it was the photography that I was most picky about. These photos will last a lifetime and I really wanted them to be special. Ralph and Liz went above & beyond to capture our special day. From the morning right until the end of the night they had their eyes open to capture special moments in the most incredible ways. Ralph helped scout an area and made us feel comfortable during the shoot, even though the weather wasn’t in our favour, all our photos turned out amazing!”
“Our first meeting seemed to be a catch-up among old friends who haven’t seen each other in a while; and that was the deciding factor. Finding a photographer who is great at what he does is a plus, but finding someone who will actually make you comfortable on your big day (without talking over or intimidating you) is a must; and that’s what Ralph and Liz are all about”
“My husband and I are so happy to have had Ralph and Liz as our photographers for our wedding day. They are very easy to work with making you feel at ease and more comfortable during photo shoots. They have a great eye for detail and their creativity is definitely reflected in the work they produce. One of the things that I really appreciated from them was that there was great communication pre and post wedding and you were always in the loop for everything.”
“Thank you again for doing our wedding photos! Oh my gosh, we had a great time, our family had a great time! Our parents had nothing but good words for you. They were very impressed with your professionalism and the service you've done for us on the day!
It was a joy working with you - from the engagement shoot up to our wedding day! We'd want to get married second time around just so we can work with you again! Haha!!!!”
“We knew Ralph was going to be our photographer as soon as we had our first meeting with him. From day one, communication was great and his laid back friendly attitude put us at ease during the process of planning of our wedding. When our big day came, we knew we had made the right choice. As a bridal party that hates photos, Ralph & Liz made us feel so comfortable - nothing was a problem for them and everyone loved them! We would highly recommend Ralph to any one looking for a photographer.”
“We had an awesome time with Ralph and Liz on our wedding day and can't recommend them more! They made us feel really comfortable and fitted into our day seamlessly, it felt like we had known them for ages. The photos were stunning and the communication through out was really punctual. Thanks again!”
“We cannot thank you enough for such an incredible experience and even MORE with how beautiful the photos turned out!!! Just insane! Definitely our most favorite and cherished moments. I am so happy google search led me to your page haha. I had you written in our wedding planner for months!”
How do we book?
I prefer meeting all my clients and hang out with them over coffee and discuss more of the wedding details. In that way I get to know more of you. Then if you have decided that we are the style of photography you are after and a good fit for you, I will email you a proposal and a contract for you to sign with an initial invoice to seal the date.
Our wedding is outside Auckland, do you travel?
Yes we do! If the location is more than 50kms one way, we will require a rental car + petrol costs OR charge a standard mileage fee + petrol costs. If the event is outside Northland or overseas, please flick us a message, tell us your plans and we will go from there.
What is your payment terms?
We require a 30% (non-refundable) deposit to seal the date. The balance is payable 3 weeks before the wedding. For Engagement sessions only, we require the full amount.
Do you require food and parking space?
Yes, it would be great to energize and replenish too with a decent meal after a whole day of photographing, If the client/venue is not able to provide vendor meals, photographers will be offsite for 1 hour to get some food and drinks.
Do you have a Public Liability Insurance?
Yes we do! Let your venue get in touch with us so we can give them the details.
Do we get the RAW files or unedited photos?
NO. We give you the high resolution processed images. Our editing, and end product is our style, and it is part of the service you will get from us.
Do you edit the images?
Yes, We do minimal retouching, but NOT extensive editing and photo manipulation.
Do we need to give you a shot list?
No, we will be there to document the event so, rest assured we will get the important moments of the day. However, if there is a particular person or event that requires our attention, feel free to mention it to us.
Do we have the rights for the digital files?
You may print and share your images whenever and wherever you like. However, you cannot sell and publish your images for profit, or use them in any commercial use without our written consent. If any of your wedding vendors request for some of your images for magazine publications or wanting to use it for their advertising or feature, please send them our way so we can provide them their needs.
Can we show you images on my Pinterest board of ideas?
Sure you can! It is a good way to show your ideas and taste with us, but we will not re-create the shot. All photographs are different, lighting situations, location and mood. We will have our own take on it and we will make it original and unique as your own.
How long do we have to wait until we get our copy of the photos?
Our turnaround time is between 6 to 8 weeks. We do not outsource our culling and editing; we handpick the photos that make it to the edit and post process the images that represents our style. However, you will receive a few Web Resolution images as Highlights within a week or 2 after the wedding so you can share them to your family and friends or social media.
