Hello

Hey, I’m Coralee!

I live in Auckland, NZ and have been earning a living with my camera for around 10 years now. I have a wonderful husband named Brendon, and we were lucky enough to become parents in Sept 2019 to our cheeky son, Hugo Ace. We also have a little black dog named Spencer, who is probably more needy than our son. Lol

I’m a friendly, go-with-the-flow, extravert by nature, so documenting weddings has always felt so natural for me, and I truely feel privileged to be doing this as my full time gig. 

I think marriage is such a wonderful thing, and every wonderful marriage starts with a wedding. Ever since I was old enough to buy a disposable film camera from the pharmacy, I’ve been really passionate about documenting the joyful moments in life and preserving memories. I want my couples to always remember the wild moments and raw emotions they felt when they married their forever person in front of their favourite people. I want my couples to truly see themselves, just as they are in an image and not a filter or a staged moment. 

I’m in the game of preserving memories and I’d love to preserve some of yours 🙂

Some things to note

Can you describe your shooting style?

By nature, I am a pretty relaxed, easy going person. I don’t like to interfere with with what’s going on around me, I just photograph it all as it is happening naturally. I like to edit my images so that they have a natural, and timeless look to them. Have a good look around my website, and if you like what you see, then we might be a good fit!

Where are you based? Do you travel internationally to shoot weddings?

I am based in Auckland, New Zealand and heck yes do I travel! For a quote on a destination wedding, send me an email and we can chat about it. You never know, I may already be in your neck of the woods at the same time. 

Can I meet you?

Of course! I would like nothing more! Depending on where I am, I can meet you on skype or in person!

Where can I find your wedding collection prices?

Please fill out my contact form, and I will email you back with my current information and collection prices. My collections start at $4000, but get in touch for a quote for your unique wedding day plans. Please feel free to write an essay about who you are, how you met and what you have in mind for your special day! I love it when I receive emails like this, as I really want to get to know you and get pumped about your wedding!

Can I pencil in my wedding date?

Unfortunately no, I work on a first in, first served basis. Your date will only be secured once the booking form has been completed and signed, and the deposit has been paid. If you’re really keen to book with me, I would love to meet you and hear all about your plans (either on skype or in person)! Having a yarn about which collection would be best for you is always helpful before you make a decision, plus you might want to meet me too! After we have met and high five’d, I would send you through all the ‘business stuff’ to make it official!

Will we receive full resolution files of all our images?

Yes! Of course! I deliver both full resolution files and smaller ‘web sized’ files of all your images from your wedding day on USB. You also will receive an online gallery that will last for 10 years.

Can you help me with my wedding day timeline?

Yes, definitely. I have had the pleasure of attending/photographing a few(!) weddings over the years and can help with the timings of the day. I can also discuss with you the pros and cons of having bridal party portraits done before or after the ceremony too.

Do you back up your images?

Yes! I back up every wedding 3 times, on 3 different hard drives, kept at 3 different locations! I am quite pedantic about this!

Can you recommend any other wedding vendors?

YES! Just write me an email and I can share with you some of my favourite florists, celebrants, make up & hair artists, cake makers, suit tailors, wedding bands and even venues in the industry! There are some truly talented people out there and I would love nothing more to share them with you!

Do you design wedding albums?

YES! There is nothing more awesome than seeing your wedding images in print, ready to show to friends and family. All albums are leather bound and are of the highest quality to last a life time. Choosing the images is a collaborative process and I like to design the layout with a clean and simple look.

Have your weddings been published before?

Yes. I have been lucky enough to have my work in many blogs and magazines over the years, such as Together Journal, Hello May Magazine, Magnolia Rouge, White Magazine, NZ Weddings Magazine and Bride and Groom Magazine. Here are a few links to check out –>
