Kelley & Ian // Queenstown Wedding
“I was pretty chill / semi reluctant about having a wedding photographer as such…. all that awkward posing, time away from our friends and family not to mention the usually ridiculous costs involved. Carla Mitchell was THE ABSOLUTE opposite! My husband found her online, sent a message which she replied to super promptly. Ours was a very private and small wedding with 13 of us in total….. we didn’t want the usual stuffy pics, we wanted someone basically invisible to candidly capture the emotion, the intimacy and the love of our ceremony and family and we wanted it done quickly. Carla worked with my husband to tailor the perfect package for us. The first time I met Carla was as I walked into our ceremony, she is so warm, engaging and totally unobtrusive. Everyone just loved her. After our ceremony she took us to some perfect spots to grab some pics of just us and captured the love, friendship and happiness of our special day more than we could have ever wished for while managing to do so while keeping us absolutely at ease and without any stuffy awkwardness and then whisked us back to celebrate with our guests. We had our photos back to us really quickly – much quicker than we expected and they are absolutely gorgeous, natural and they really capture the essence of our day. Carla’s creativity, professionalism and eye for a great shot exceeded our expectations and we just love looking through them and taking ourselves back to that very very special day.
Thank you Carla – words can not describe how grateful we are for you. If you are looking for a wedding photographer we can not recommend Carla highly enough – book her…. you’ll be so pleased you did!!”

“Alastair & I just wanted to say a big thank you for everything you did on and for the lead up of our special day last month. Your support was fantastic! We had a great honeymoon in Thailand, and it was awesome to come home and see the photos ready for us to view on line. I can’t believe how many photos you took up on Cecil Peak! You’ve made it super hard for me to choose only 1 hero shot to get a large print of! They are all amazing!!!!
We have some great memories and messages from the photo booth album, it was a real hit, and perfect for our wedding guests.”

I just wanted to let you know of the many compliments we’ve received over the attached pic. “Gobsmacked” wouldn’t even come close to the expressions we’ve encountered. So many have said it’s worthy of Vogue or any art-worthy publication.
Thankyou again. Your gift just keeps on giving..!
