Photographers

TRACEY CLAIRE PHOTOGRAPHY

Classically Romantic Wedding Photography for Weddings, Elopements & Engagements. We, Tracey and Riaan van Deventer are a tight husband and wife photography team based in Auckland, New Zealand. Trust our powerful team efforts to tell your story for years to come as we operate as two main photographers throughout your wedding day. We take our passion seriously and invest a lot of time and love in what we do. Never expecting to enjoy capturing weddings as much as we do, we thrive on the wonderfully vibrant and creative environment together with the magical journey we enjoy with our clients. With 17 years of portrait experience, we gently pose and direct where required (completely naturally), or simply capture the candid moment. We make it super easy and fluidly combine these two approaches through our artistic visions of how you will look your best. It’s the perfect combo! And be assured, we keep it fun, casual and most importantly – We keep it REAL.

LIEF LA VIE PHOTOGRAPHY

Kia Ora, Love has brought me here, I’m a South African girl. Brought up in a small town at the foot of a gorgeous mountain range. After studying Fashion Marketing and Photography in university, I became a passionate fashion merchandiser and during this time I met my best friend, my Husband of 15 years and together we travelled the world. We have two beautiful children and are settled in New Zealand. Wedding photography has surprised me again and again. I am amazed at the caliber of people I get to meet and work with. I am asked to travel to incredible locations and watch two people commit themselves to each other. I hear words of the purest form, written from the heart spoken to one another. I see love in all its glory, sparkling on everyone’s shoulders as they embrace in a hug. I watch as families are reunited after years apart, and others who are meeting for the first time. It is magical. You can’t call it anything less.

My style is mostly documentary wedding photography with a touch of artistic storytelling, and a handful of gently guided relaxed and natural portraits. This basically means that I focus a lot on candid photos (especially photos of people having fun!) and on capturing your wedding as it happens – real moments, real emotion.

It’s no small deal to be asked to photograph your day and I aim to provide a fun and enjoyable experience from the first time we meet, right through to when I deliver your final collection of images. Let’s make the wedding photos of your dreams.

Hair Stylists

JEMMA OERTEL

My name is Jemma Wilson and I have been a hairdresser for 14 years and I absolutely love it.

For me it’s a way to express creativity and most importantly make women feel and look amazing.

I have such a passion to not only make your hair look amazing but for you to feel amazing in the process.

I’ve trained apprentices and managed a salon, after having two children I decided to create a salon from home to be able to juggle mum life and my courier/passion, so I can truly say I get the best of both worlds.
