I’m Carla Mitchell. I’m a 31-year-old wedding photographer living in what I think is the most spectacular place in the world, Queenstown, New Zealand.
Some of my favourite things include good food, and better if it’s with great wine, scroggin muchin hikes, snowboarding, sunsets with my loved one, and exploring new places.
Nothing makes me happier than frolicking in the mountains and documenting a whole lotta love. I want to meet the couples who are consumed with their love. The couples who are okay to get their dress and suit a little dirty if it means an epic view is at the end. The couples whose story is an adventure in itself.
When shooting a wedding I try be as unobtrusive as possible, aiming to create raw and authentic images that are full of love. When you look back on your photos, I want you to remember how you felt, rather than some uncomfortable pose. I want to document you in your rawest form.
During weddings, you will often find me lying on a dirt road, climbing mountains up to my waist in snow or accidently walking backwards into a swamp, all to get the perfect shot.
