About me

Hi, I’m Carla Mitchell, a young wedding photographer living in what I think is the most spectacular place in the world, Queenstown, New Zealand.

My fav things include hiking in my ever amazing backyard and forever finding new epic places with our beautiful fur baby Issy the Golden Retriever, follow my Instagram stories and you will fall in love with her too!
A good glass of red wine in the winter after a day up the mountain snowboarding or a cold rose chilling in the sun with my girlfriends. Exploring new places all over the world with my main squeeze Sam, eating and drinking their cuisine and making memories together.

I love my job and think I am so blessed to meet awesome couples from all over the world and capture their love amongst epic backdrops. Nothing makes me happier than frolicking in the mountains (as a third wheel!) and documenting a whole lotta love.

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 accidentally walking backwards into a swamp, all to get the perfect shot.
