Well Travelled Bride Lake Wanaka Weddings Destination Photographer


We recommend your photographer is one of the first tasks whilst wedding planning. If you're hosting a destination wedding a natural choice is often to bring your photographer with you. Whilst thats always a fabulous option, its certainly not a requirement for Wanaka. There are some incredibly gorgeous wedding photographers on offer in Central Otago, we can't recommend our hand-picked selection higher. All locals, they know Wanaka well and will act as your personal tour guide finding gorgeous, hidden spots for your portraits.

Her sweet nature will make you feel relaxed while capturing your portraits along with lots of honest, behind the scenes moments. She is a local favourite of ours!
