20 Auckland Wedding Photographers That You Need To See

By Maria Yeonhee Ji

When married couples look back on their wedding day, there are many expenses they realise were unnecessary that left a sizeable bite in their finances. However, photography and/or videography services are almost never on that list. There are few mementoes more permanent, detail-rich, and valuable as images of you and your loved ones on your wedding day. Which is why deciding on the photographer is one of the biggest decisions for couples to make leading up to the big day. Fortunately, some of the best award-winning photographers - many who regularly travel the globe to shoot weddings worldwide - are based right here in Auckland. Here are 23 of the ones you should definitely check out before making your booking.
