My name is Michael Kouki, and I am a wedding and elopement photographer based in Auckland.
For some, the thought of being in front of a camera can seem a little daunting. No need to worry about that though!! My style of photography is very documentary, focusing on capturing all of the raw, candid and unique moments throughout your special day without anything being too forced uncomfortably posed.
My main goal is to help... View more guide you through the process of making your day as fun and relaxed as it possibly can be. This includes multiple online or in person consultations before the wedding, to help with timeline planning and give advice on anything you need help or advice with.
If you like my work and thing a fun and relaxed vibe would suit your wedding day, get in touch. Would love to catch up with you over a coffee or a few beers.

One of the coolest photographers out there without a shadow of a doubt 📸 it easily was the best experience with a photographer to date! Michael is super personable and very talented at his craft. He made sure my wife and I were comfortable and enjoying the experience along our photo shoot 😁 Never had found a photographer so passionate to do what he does 🙌🏽 He is energetic, engaging, and a lot of fun! We love our photos and can’t thank you enough Koukiphotographynz 📸🙌🏽

My partner and I only recently had Michael photograph our elopement ceremony. I cannot sing his praises enough. He is exceptionally personable and was the best addition to our planning and day. Having only seen some of the shots taken yet we cannot wait to see the rest, the standard is amazing. Would recommend him in a heartbeat to anyone looking for a photographer.

He did take photos for my ceremony after all. That came from his passion for a hobby then to a business to where it is now. I am proud of his achievements and what level of artistry he has been able to reach in photography. I've been to many weddings, and photographers always seem to fall short in quality and lack of direction. Michael isn't one to worry about. Just look at all of the other testimonials! (No they aren't reviews from our extended cousins either). The proof is really in the pudding. What has been important is making sure that the couple does not only feel comfortable but help evoke emotion and passion and capture that through a lens. Maybe other photographers can do that but Michael did this with ease for our ceremony. So if you are looking for someone to capture that moment, I would highly recommend it. Thanks, bro for all you have done.

From the moment we met Michael and his team, we felt so comfortable and he quickly became like family to us. As is the case with traditional Indian weddings there are a lot of things happening and a lot of emotions and activities. Michael and his team captured these events and moments so beautifully and seamlessly for both our families. Michael has a great talent for making you feel comfortable in front of the camera his laugh is infectious and antics keep you giggling and amused. We truly are thankful to Michael and his team for capturing the emotion and beauty of our wedding, we just received our album and are over the moon. Michael, you are family now and we look forward to catching up soon. Love J&T
