PaulMichaels New Zealand Photographers.

Since taking my first professional photos back in the 90’s with a Hasselblad camera, I’ve loved the art of image making. In 2005 I started on a digital journey making images all about the “moment”. It’s still about lighting and making people look great, but the magic of the “now”, the capture of the event and emotion of the day is what people want. I love it !

Lynnette joined me in 2011 partnering in the pursuit of creating great picture. Together we have had a lot of fun weddings, some lovely couples and some truly beautiful ceremonies. Consistently surpassing our bride and groom’s expectations, both for the day and in the final images produced.

Enjoying the art of picture making has also meant achieving awards and competition wins. A highlight of 2013 was achieving first place at the New Zealand national gold awards. Beating all the other New Zealand professional photographers.

Creating awesome photos and making the very best of every event, ceremony and photoshoot is very important to us. Although we don’t do many competitions now, we still look forward to capturing amazing images at every wedding that we have the privilege to photograph at.

Some great places for your photos.
