I’m Chay McLaren
I’m a wedding photographer currently based out of Auckland New Zealand. I love travelling, coffee, good music, photography (clearly), dogs, and pretty much anything that will get me outdoors.
I believe that when planning your wedding, photography is one of the most important things to consider. I love that responsibility and feel honoured to be part of such a special day.
I’m not about big dramatic poses, you won’t see me running around setting up... View more flashes. I like to capture things as they happen with a bit of guidance along the way. I want to capture the real stuff, from the big moments to the ones when you don’t think anyone else is watching.
If you want to know more then flick me an email and let’s start chatting.

Chay and Scott put in 110% to making our day the best it possibly could have been. They stayed for the full 8 hours with 2 cameras in hand each. Every moment of the day was captured with the highest photography standards. All of our photos are amazing, not only that but the service dedicated to touch ups, scouting photo spots, planning our days itinerary and so much more. The products overall are the best I have seen available anywhere, I love the USB backup for everything in an amazing handmade box, cant wait for our album to come together. Overall best service, Best value for money, and pairing up with Lipstick and Co. to provide top to toe hair and makeup as well. Couldn't be better.

The engagement shoot was great for us, they had us laughing the whole time so took away any awkwardness at first. The photos came out looking really nice and was overall a really good experience. Thanks guys.

Sophie and her wonderful team made our wedding day INCREDIBLE! We are so thankful, not only for all their hardwork, but also for their support in the lead up to the big day. We honestly don’t know how we could have pulled it off without Fluro Grey; they really listened to everything we said and worked alongside us every step of the way. Flowers, decorations, hair & make up, and also photography: having it all organised by one team made it stress- and hassle-free! From the moment we got Fluro Grey on board, they helped turn our vague idea of what we thought we might like into an amazing reality. Everything was taken care of, and the team were a pleasure to work with on the day! Having never organised a wedding before, I found it so relieving to be able to rely on people who really know their stuff! They were able to take my vague ideas (“bright colours, not matchy-matchy, ummm elegant?”) and work alongside me to come up with a bright, eclectic and individual plan: easy! They even coordinated with our venue so they knew exactly what was needed to make the place wedding-ready. We had a large bridal party and their professional speed and skill meant hair & make up went smoothly- their beauty team was really cool to hang out with (such a bonus!). It made for a fun ladies morning, while Chay (our amazing photographer) caught candid snaps of the fun. Our hair and makeup artists listened to our ideas for what we wanted, and tailored it to look stunning on all the ladies. Even better, they used top of the line products which meant it lasted the entire day & night! Our photographer was happy to oblige us when we asked for un-scripted photos and other weird requests- meaning everyone looked fantastic, had fun and have the awesome photos to prove it! We cannot thank them, or recommend them highly enough! Thanks team!

We had Sophie and Brian help us with our engagement photo shoot, They were both amazing! Sophie made me feel beautiful, and for people that know me i am not a photogenic person i am always behind the camera! And Brian had us laughing the whole time! He made us feel so comfortable we cannot wait to use them for our renewal of our wedding vows next year!!
