About Carla

*September 2020 Update*
I am so so soooooo excited to be expected a baby girl by the end of September 2020 so if you don’t get a reply straight away it maybe cause I’ve gone into labour (I’m currently 38 weeks pregnant while writing this)!!
I will be on maternity leave until the start of March 2021 and will be back shooting then. Although closer to the time, I might consider taking on some smaller shoots/elopements before then, all considering on how life with bubs is!


I’m a full-time wedding photographer and shameless dog mum living in Queenstown, NZ. As you can probably see, I am low-key obsessed with our golden retriever, Issy. She sucks at retrieving and swims in a mud puddle every chance she can. The hunk in the photos is my amazing fiancé Sam who is my biggest fan, my adventure buddy and my occasional therapist. I’m stoked that I grew up in such a magical part of the world where I have spent my time snowboarding, hiking and exploring. I love taking couples to those hidden local spots to get married and to be your tour guide along the way!

As a photographer, I strive to be as unobtrusive as possible…hunting for those in-between moments to capture true candid images. I also understand how weird it can feel in front of the camera because I am super awkward when I’m on the other side of the lens! I will give you cues and direction, and photograph what happens naturally as you respond and react. The best photos are when you show me your quirks, make each other laugh uncontrollably and those imperfect moments together.

When you hire me, you are getting more than a photographer. I am here to help with wedding day timelines, photo locations and suggest awesome local vendors. And on the day, I’m there to secure the buttonhole, help calm the nerves, co-ordinate your guests and be your third-wheeler friend for whatever you need.
