KIND WORDS

Proudly serving couples throughout New Zealand and Australia for over 7 years.

“Mandy is such a skilled photographer and we were so happy to have her as part of our wedding day!”

Her images speak for themselves and she has a real knack for capturing all the candid moments you cherish. She was so accommodating and willing to go the extra mile; she even helped me with a surprise I had organised for Cam. Her attention to detail, professionalism and friendly nature made her such a pleasure to work with. We got the high resolution images on a USB that arrived in a cute little wooden box – what a treasure! We absolutely love the photos and many of our friends and family have commented on how great they are. We couldn’t recommend Mandy more highly to anyone looking for a photographer to capture those special moments! Thank you Mandy!!!

“Mandy did such an amazing job photographing our wedding.”

It was great to meet up first for the engagement photos, it meant we could talk about what we wanted and get to know each other, and helped Mandy could find the perfect spot for our after wedding photos.

On the day it was so crazy for us, it was great to have someone work through the list of our guests and make sure no-one was left out – we have a great photo of all our attendees, and have sent them off.

Highly highly recommended.

“Mandy was a pleasure to work with.”

She was very professional and made us feel totally comfortable and at ease. She was great in the lead up to our big day; very prompt at replying and letting us know what she needed from us as well as offering us advice. The photos turned out absolutely amazing and we couldn’t be happier. She was so discreet on the day that we didn’t even notice she was taking photos of certain parts of the day which was a great surprise when looking through the images. Mandy is so friendly and easy going, it felt like having another friend there. She went above and beyond with helping out on the day and assisted us in any way she could. Mandy gave us direction and pointers to ensure the photos turned out amazing. We would highly recommend her, she was amazing!

“Wow all I can say is Mandy was astounding as our photographer at our wedding.”

She was easy to get along with real down to earth but also incredibly professional at the same time. She made it easy for you to feel relax around her so photo taking wasn’t a daunting process. We had her pretty much the whole day and we were amazed by how many photos we got and how awesome they all turned out. Definitely recommend her A++.

“Mandy was absolutely fantastic!” 

We loved the way she managed to get such gorgeous photos while being completely unobtrusive and not disrupting the flow of the day at all. Mandy arrived with lots of amazing ideas for photo’s but was also wonderful at stopping to listen to any ideas that we had as well – something a lot of photographers are not that good at! We were blown away at both the quality and the quantity of our wedding photos. Mandy managed to really capture the emotion of the day, the little details, and we love reliving the day by looking back through our photos. Thank you so much Mandy!

“We loved having Mandy do our photography for our wedding!”

She was so accommodating, friendly and genuinely caring from the very first moment we met. The photos are amazing! We have recommended Mandy to our friends for their special occasions.

“We are so so happy with our wedding photos that Mandy took.”

We were recommended Mandy from a work colleague and were so pleased that we decided to use her. The photos are absolutely amazing and probably being biased but we think they are the best wedding photos we’ve seen. Mandy was great to deal with, I always got a prompt response when emailing and on the day she was so lovely and made us all feel relaxed. I love how natural the photos look and also was amazed at her creativity. A wedding day can feel like such a blur as it goes so fast but Mandy managed to capture every special moment and we will treasure our photos for years to come.

“Mandy recently photographed our Akaroa wedding – we are so thrilled with our wedding photos and the overall experience with Mandy!”

She was communicative and friendly in the lead up. On the day she was efficient and always managed to be in the right place at the right time. The photographs themselves are just wonderful – there are lots to choose from in both colour and black and white. The presentation and delivery of photos was perfect for us too – within 4 weeks which I understand is quick for wedding photographs. Price-wise, we did a lot of research and we are very happy with what we paid.

I will absolutely be recommending Mandy to any friends and family getting married.

“I met Mandy and knew of her amazing photos through a friend who recommended her. I’m so glad we did!”

Mandy did an engagement shoot with us so we could get to know her and know what it was going to be like at the wedding. Davies and I both got along really well with Mandy and she made us feel very comfortable. She is easy to get along with. The photos turned out so well and we were very happy to have her as our photographer at the wedding. I would definitely recommend Mandy to anybody as her photos are amazing and also reasonably priced too. I had a lot of great feedback at just how well she captured us both.

“Wow!! Mandy really did manage to capture the real emotions, the real moments, the real laughter and all the love throughout our day”

That’s what makes her such an amazing photographer and our photos such a joy to share with our friends and family. Mandy was brilliant to work with, with only having met her the day before, we felt at ease and very comfortable, even our 3 year old son enjoyed the photo shoot. I could not recommend any one else apart from Mandy for professional photos and we would absolutely use her again. Thank you Mandy. Love The Beyers xxx

“After seeing only a handful of photos on her website, we knew right away that we wanted Mandy to capture all those special moments and memories that will last us a lifetime.”

Mandy was very friendly, personable, and professional. She made things so easy for us leading up to the day. She even took the time to make a special trip to our wedding destination to look at possible locations for our photo shoot. She gave us a lot of her time on our day and she made it relaxed, fun and interesting! Our wedding day is a day we will never forget thanks to the wonderful work of our photographer!

“Mandy is such a professional and passionate photographer.”

Not only me, but my family was amazed by her skills and her idea of capturing the perfect moments.
She is willing to listen to what we want and put heart and soul to make it happen! I really appreciate that she actually stayed with us until mid-night just because my husband and I would like to have some starring night photos. And she also scounted our preferred locations before we went to New Zealand.

She also prepare the nice and cute USB for us with all high resolution images, as well as a link to download the compressed photos so that we can share to friends!

I highly recommend Mandy!! YOU ARE AWESOME 😀

“This recommendation cannot come highly enough; it felt like we had always known Mandy and she made us both feel so at ease”

We found Mandy online via her webpage and as soon as we saw some of her work we knew instantly that we wanted her to be our wedding photographer. Her natural and relaxed take was exactly what we were after. Mandy was able to capture not only the laughs and tears of myself and Brad but also of our family and friends who were a big part of our special day. Her photos have provided us with ever lasting memories of such an amazing day. Mandy was extremely accommodating with time frames that suited us and provided us with a number of package options to suit our budget. She was professional, friendly and you could tell instantly she has an overwhelming passion for what she does. Mandy took the time to come to our rehearsal and look through our venue, she went out of her way to research and find the best places for us to have our photos on the day. Her talent is awe-inspiring and we would not hesitate in recommending her. Thanks again Mandy for capturing those special moments!!
