We, Tracey and Riaan van Deventer are a tight husband and wife photography team based in Auckland, New Zealand. Trust our powerful team efforts to tell your story as we operate as two main photographers throughout your wedding day. We take our passion seriously and invest a lot of loving energy in what we do. Thriving on wonderfully vibrant wedding vibes, full of emotions and beautiful moments, combined with the magical journey we enjoy with... View more our clients, we can truly say that we are grateful that we get to call this our work.
With 17 years of portrait experience, we gently pose or direct where required (completely naturally), or simply capture the candid moment. While making it super easy, we fluidly combine these two approaches through our artistic visions of how you will look your best on your incredible wedding day. And at the same time, also capturing all the good stuff behind the scenes, to tell the story as your special day unfolds. It’s the perfect combo!
Our “Full Story” or “Full Day” coverage includes a complimentary Engagement Shoot which our clients find very beneficial. It allows us all get to know one another, "behind" and "in front" of the cameras while producing beautiful, fun and casual portraits,
separate from the formalities and time constraints of the actual wedding day. Although the couple shoot still plays a large role on the wedding day too, this is an opportunity for us all to go out and have a blast together. It also allows those who are camera shy
to learn how easy it is so that they feel more relaxed on the actual wedding day.
Limited bookings taken allows us to fully dedicate our efforts to each and every couple and staying true to our love of the game, we give it our ALL!
Be assured, we keep it fun, casual and most importantly, we keep it REAL.

We had an engagement shoot with Tracey just after level 3 had ended, she was so kind and approachable, I'm not one to enjoy my picture taken but she managed to pull me out of my comfort zone! We were stoked at the end with the way she captured the authenticity between me and my fiancé. I highly RECOMMEND! Thanks Tracey.

Tracey has been incredible from the planning stages of our wedding right through to sharing our album with us. We planned our wedding from abroad and Tracey was very responsive and made us feel at ease even through we hadn't yet met in person. Tracey has been so helpful and gave us really good practical advice for our day. She was also very attentive to what we wanted for our wedding photography. On our wedding day, she made us feel so comfortable and it really shows in the photos and how she captured the atmosphere. We really felt that she cared about us and the experience was so personalised to us and our day. The final photos are stunning and we couldn't be happier with how they turned out. It's been so special to be able to re-live our wedding and and see the moments that we missed. In these difficult times, when we're so far from our families, it's amazing to have these photos and look back on these happy memories on when we were last together. Thank you so much Tracey!!

From the very first conversation, it's clear these guys are passionate about what they do. Tracey and Riaan are professional and it's evident that they want to know you and what results you are after. They managed to create photographs that capture the joy and love we have for each other. They directed when they needed to and stepped back to capture those spontaneous moments. They seem to have a real eye for being able to tell our story. Highly recommend them.

We recently had our engagement shoot with Tracey Claire Photography, just got the photos back last night... and couldn't be happier with what we received back! Tracey and Riaan have a wonderful demeanor that put this camera-shy, non-PDA type couple instantly at ease, making the shoot itself just so easy. Our photos are simply beautiful, completely beyond what we expected, and we cannot wait for our wedding day now for more!! If you are a nervous couple, simply put your trust in these genuine, down-to-earth photographers with a passion, to look after you and your needs on your special day. We cannot recommend them enough.
