Kirsten Summers

Hi there, If you're reading this I'm guessing there's a chance that you might have just got engaged CONGRATULATIONS! Or maybe you've been together for years but have decided to finally get married (that was me). My partner and I were together for 22 years before tying the knot in 2017. It is such a cliche but your wedding day really will be one of the best days of your life. I can vouch for that. On a typical wedding day, I shoot everything I see and more. I literally don’t put my camera down. My aim is to photograph all the bits you will remember and all the things you might not see. I'm super sociable, and weddings are my absolute fave. Everyone looking their finest, emotions running high, laughter, tears, hugs, kisses and of course the undeniable amount of love in the air. My style is super relaxed and candid with just a tiny bit of direction where it's needed at certain parts of the day. If you're still undecided let's meet for a coffee (or a wine) I'd love to hear about what you've got planned for your big day. In other news - I've just been named as a finalist in the NZIPP professional IRIS Awards 2020. My 3 images shown here were awarded as 3 of the highest scoring sets of images in the Wedding category! I also won 4 awards for some sports photos I took. When I'm not shooting weddings I love shooting sport, you can see my sports work here

There are not enough words to describe how fantastic Kirsten is - do yourselves a favour and book this amazing photographer for your wedding! Kirsten was an absolute dream to work with. My (now husband) and I are not overly keen on having photos taken and our main wish was to ‘get a couple of nice photos of us’ on the wedding day. Kirsten more than delivered! Kirsten was so relaxed and friendly it did not feel awkward or like a chore at all - in fact, we had so much fun! And what’s more the photos were amazing! Kirsten is truly talented and she captured the ‘vibe’ of our special day perfectly. We are so unbelievably happy with our beautiful photos - not just the ones of ourselves, but of our guests and the whole day’s celebrations. Thank you so much for everything Kirsten - You are an absolute delight.

Kirsten is an incredible wedding photographer. She is professional and great at her job, but also fun and approachable. She makes sure your vision is really captured and we absolutely loved our photos. If you’re feeling awkward in front of a professional camera, she will direct you and make you laugh so it appears the most natural. We loved having her as a part of our special day and highly recommend her work! Do it, book her now!

We met Kirsten and family in Vanuatu in 2012, fast forward to 2015 and there we were again only this time around Kirsten was attending our wedding as our friend so who better to capture it. Our photos turned out amazing and we love them. Kirsten really captured our family and friend's exactly how we wanted it. Still to this day I share our pics and think take us back and to me that's how wedding pics should make you feel. Job done ✔ Highly recommend Kirsten to capture specials times.

When my husband and I were looking for a wedding photographer we wanted someone who had an eye for natural and candid shots. We wanted to capture the simple beauty of our wedding location on our very unique piece of land, our Turangaas well as creating memories of our wedding surrounded by our beautiful blended family and friends. Kirsten met us on-site at our land a few weeks before the wedding because of its unique location. She fell in love with it and won our hearts with her excitement and enthusiasm. On the day, Kirsten was professional to a tee and worked so hard running across the paddock from one end to the other to get those perfect shots as we drive through the river and up on to our land. During the ceremony, we did not notice her at all but she ended up being everywhere, as seen in the gorgeous images she captured. We absolutely love our photos from that very precious day, and we could not have chosen a better person to work with. Kirsten put us at ease, is a great communicator and has a wonderful eye!
