OH HI THERE! 

I'm so excited you reached out to me. I can't wait to hear all about you and your love!  I hope through this guide you find we would be a killer team and I get to be there to capture this special time in your life. In this wee packet here, you'll find a bit about me and how I work, my packages and some FAQs to help you better understand how I operate.

Wether we're going to hike up to the top of a mountain or take a drive down to the lake. Either way, I know we are going to create magic!

Okay, first things first! 

We'll be great together if-

 

1. You're cool letting your hair blow in the wind, and getting your boots a bit muddy. This isn't the time for those pricey heels girl ;) 

 

2. You want photos that reflect the way the day felt, not just looked. The good, the crazy and the wild. 

 

3.  You value interactions and emotion more than material things. No need to wear that designer dress or spend hours on your makeup, the point of these photos it to show who YOU are, not who you can make yourself look like. 

 

4. You can not keep your hands off each other! PDA is welcome on your shoot haha! 

 

5. Finally, you're ready to create something magical and know that it takes time. Giving me creative control when it comes to portraits is very important to me. I don't just want my couples to meet with me in between a Bungy jump and dinner, I really care about bringing you somewhere amazing and giving you memorable time together. It's not just a slot in the day, this is something that will last you a lifetime. 

 

"We just received our photos and we can't stop looking at them! They captured our excitement and happiness of our engagement so well, we can't believe it! I was so worried my partner was going to be really awkward but he warmed up to Kate so quickly because of her great personality! The location she chose was perfect and beautiful! Like her website says, she really does feel like your long lost best friend. I love how she didn't ask us to do awkward poses and loved the spontaneity of the photo shoot! Thank you Kate for everything!"

engagement Sessions

Whether it’s chilling at home, going on a hike, or just seeing the sights, I want to document you being you. A little snapshot of your life together in this one in a lifetime location. 

You can use your engagement photos for save-the-dates, invitations, your wedding website, your wedding guest book, etc! And they will give you an opportunity to jump in front of the lens before your big day!

Honeymoon Sessions 

Now that the pressure is off and you're still on your newly wed, let's take advantage of that! We meet, you put your wedding clothes back on, and we shoot at a location that wouldn't be accessible on the wedding day due to time limitations or the fact that you're in freaking New Zealand (whoop, whoop!).

This kind of session is epic! It allows for a more relaxed wedding portrait time and you  get to mix it up and get a few in your wedding attire and a few in a more casual look. No rush, no worrying about not having enough time for photos, and way more relaxed and genuine time!

Couple Session

You're on holiday with your love in this epic place, why the hell not book a photoshoot to celebrate! Queenstown has so many amazing spots, and being able to have those memories together is priceless. 

Wether it's chilling at home/ in your hotel room, going on a hike or exploring a secret waterfall, I want to document you, being yourselves! A little tiny snippet from your life together, something that when you look at it years down the track, you'll think, 'yep, thats perfectly us!'

EXTRAS

 

300 | Add Another Location 

Add a location to split your time up between multiple cool spots. I don't count travel into the time of your session, so for say a two hour session, we can do an hour in one place and then an hour somewhere else. 

 

 

1000+ | Badass Helicopter 

This can really be the cherry on top for your day! Together we pick a rockin mountain top location and frolic, enjoy the sites and take photos in a once in a breathtaking location for an hour (they quote 45 minutes but they are all great guys and can push it out a bit). I promise, you won't forget this one! 

 

 

300+ | Prints 

I offer a collection of handmade, museum quality and carefully curated prints, canvases, boxes and albums. For more info on these, just let me know and I can show you what I offer.

FAQs

 

HOW MANY IMAGES ARE INCLUDED?

For couple sessions, I deliver a minimum of 35 images. Each package is different and I never leave anything out.  I don’t put a strict cap or minimum on what I will deliver, but do keep it around the amount set in which ever pacakge you pick. Every session is different and varies from the last, and numbers are always changing. If you’d like to see some full  galleries, please feel free to ask! I’m happy to send over a few so you can get an idea of what I deliver.


DO YOU GIVE OUT RAWS?

Nope. I don’t, because editing is half the process/magic that goes into images, and without that huge step the images are only halfway done. I promise to never leave any photos out that you’ll want/need, and if you feel I missed delivering a photo, just ask! I’m more than happy to check back through my images and send it over for you. I wont let you miss out on any memories! 


HOW DO PAYMENT SCHEDULES WORK?

I require 50% down at time of booking to hold your date, and the remaining 50% due 14 days prior to your session. I accept bank transfer, paypal, and cash. 


CAN YOU PHOTOSHOP US TO LOOK SKINNIER / HAVE CLEAR SKIN / HAVE THE ASS OF BEYONCE?

I’m not a personal trainer and I don’t change your appearance. I want to focus on making you feel beautiful, rather than look unrealistic. So no, I dont photoshop your bodies to appear different than they actually are. But yes, I will clear up skin and remove distractions, I will photoshop anything that isn’t permanent.


WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR TO OUR SESSION?

I have a style guide I can send over, but just wear something that is comfortable and is your style. Be yourselves! If you are the type of people that would rather sit around in sweats all day likeme and binge netfix shows and don’t understand why girls can’t wear pants to ‘da club’, then it will probably not make a ton of sense for you to wear something fancy haha. Sticking to neutrals is best, but message me and I can help you choose out something based on the
 location we will shoot at!


WHAT IF WE NEED TO CANCEL/RESCHEDULE OUR SESSION?

I’m cool to reschedule if somethnig horrible happens but if you get cold feet or can’t make it to your session at all, sadly I don’t offer refunds. I don’t do this because I’m trying to suck money from you, but because I’m counting on that money during that time to pay bills and I only take on limited amounts of jobs per month, meaning that I depend on that money.


WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU CAN’T MAKE IT TO OUR SESSION?

Heaven forbid this happens, but in the case of something crazy/out of my control happens making me unable to make it to your session, then I will do my best to  find a replacement photographer that I trust to come and take my place to shoot it. I’m not legally held to doing so. In the case of me or a
replacement not making it to your sessiont, you will be refunded.


WHAT IF WE NEED TO RESCHEDULE OUR SHOOT DUE TO WEATHER?

We can reschedule if weather is really that awful, but some of my favorite sessions ever have been in rain/hail/snow storms! And wind? Pshh.. wind is what I pray we get before every shoot! Embracing the weather makes for incredible photos. The only times I’ve rescheduled shoots due to weather is if my camera will be ruined by the weather. We will make the decision together whether we need to reschedule or not.

Also, if you choose to, we can also do an in home/ in hotel session.
