Meet Christina: I am a mum of two little munchkins Issabella (8) + Ari (4); I am also wife to a (most of the time) very patient husband who encourages me to adventure all the time whilst creating totally epic images of LOVERS. On a side note my most favourite place to be is the beach sipping strong coffee and fine wine or making yummy paleo dishes for my family. I love pretty things, and I capture LOVE, combine the two and you have a Wedding Day! There is nothing like watching a couple say "I do" on their most important day, and be able to capture all those special memories for them in a romantic style. I pride myself on giving you authentic, romantic, and creative images while making it relaxed and fun.
I am deeply passionate about wedding photography. I am an Hamilton based photographer specialising in Wedding photography. I admit I do have a love for travel, and I travel frequently for weddings and photoshoots all over NZ + Worldwide.
So if your engaged I would LOVE to hear from you,
*Please be in touch as to where I will be in the off peak season (May - Oct)
