NEW ZEALAND WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

Travelling for Love

If you’re after a timeless and vintage wedding film photography style to capture real moments (imperfections and all!), I’m so happy you’ve landed here because that’s what I aim to deliver.

Nestled in the heart of the Bay of Plenty, I specialise in the art of vintage and film wedding photography since 2017. It’s a privilege to work with couples in New Zealand and overseas on a day they choose to spend with close family and friends. 

Wondering how I will set your photos apart? I’m known for crafting love tales through film photography to give your memories a nostalgic yet timeless charm. The secret? We’ll get to know each other, connect, and work together to capture candid shots filled with laughter, fun, and those serene moments too.

"Eilish is absolutely incredible! Her photos speak for themselves, and we feel so lucky to have such stunning memories captured of our day to relive. Her communication and vision was amazing, and we felt the most comfortable we ever have of someone taking our photo (coming from two people who generally avoid the camera). Eilish felt like an old friend, with a contagious energy, and unboubtful love for love. We can’t stop looking through our photos and can’t believe it’s us! Timeless and beautiful shots, a true artist!"

She captured everything we could have ever wanted and more!!! It's SO hard to find the words, but what Eilish has done for us is just so beautiful. Not only do we have the most AMAZING photographer but theres no doubt we've also created a life long friend. We love you, we love your work and we are just so happy to have had you with us on our big day."

"If you want the best this is it! Eilish is amazing at what she does and makes the photos so special and easy on your wedding day! She makes sure you are both on the same page with what you want and she never makes you feel like your ideas are wrong! And she works so hard after the wedding to have a fast turn around!"

"You have this incredibly gentle and kind aura about you that just put our minds at ease and made us feel like we had known you forever. And my god your sense of humour and confidence that you bring to the shoot had us genuinely laughing our heads off the whole time. If you are a potential client reading this review and are looking for the perfect photographer, I strongly encourage you to stop right here and book Eilish. She is an incredibly talented photographer and the most beautiful soul we have ever met"

"We went into our engagement session having no experience getting professional photos taken but Eilish told us exactly what to do and when and it started to feel so natural and fun. She made us feel confident in front of the camera and confident that our wedding photos will be everything we want and more. Excellent communication, super professional and simply stunning photos! Don’t hesitate, just book with Eilish!! Xoxo"

"Eilish took the most stunning images of my partner Jase and I. It’s something we’ve really wanted to do, but have been hesitant to as you can imagine, posing in front of a camera isn’t the most comfortable experience. Eilish makes you feel so confident, natural, and effortless that you forget what you’re there for. She’s got a sense of humour to match her fantastic personality so we were in fits of laughter the entire time which made for some beautiful images"
