Why Our Couples Simply Love Us.
We are keeping it real in the sea of the same. Started out of love for weddings in 2007. Exclusive experiences with focus on our couples rather than on trying to be "photography" rockstars or instagram influencers. We are a husband and wife team with some great people working with us. Laura started the first wedding planning company in Queenstown and Fredrik is the most awarded Wedding photographer with a mention in the Top 10 Wedding photographers in the World. We work from a beautiful photography studio next to the airport and have our own passenger licensed cars. We are the only Qualmarked Wedding planners here, we are part of Destination QT and operating our business with a focus on safety and amazing experiences.

We moved in to our beautiful studio about 2 years ago. It is also home for UP Studios our commercial photography side. We rent out photography gear and shooting space for visiting photographers and movie productions. It is also a workshop for teaching photography. This is where we meet you before your wedding day and its available as a pretty special back up location for rainy days.
We have our own in-house luxury cars that are registered to legally transport you on your day. We have a whole studio filled with gear and shoot with Canon R5 and R6 on our weddings. We are Qualmarked , the offical quality assurance organisation in NZ. We are the only Heli Wedding company with this qualification in New Zealand. We hold First aid certificates and Helicopter ground handling certificates. All our procedures are based on consistently safe exclusive wedding experiences.
