Trilby and Lace

Hello my name is Sonja, I have been taking photos for 25yrs and been awarded for my work. My approach is fun and relaxed while I creatively tell your story through natural, bright and beautiful images. Weddings give me endless opportunities for creating; they are a tapestry of emotion, beauty, love, fun and connection all woven together in a single day. I look for the in-between moments, laughter and happiness. I see these as moments to capture, moments I believe you will love. As your wedding photographer, my goal is not only to create incredible images, but to also make sure your experience of the day is as smooth and stress-free as possible. I capture my weddings with my 35mm film and professional digital cameras for extra special images. My full-day package with two photographers averages around $4,000, with both digital and traditional roll film options. Sonja x

Sonja! These are just phenomenal!! You captured not only the day, the details and the love. But you captured myself and Joel’s true characters and relationship so beautifully. Thank you so much Sonja! Your art will be on display in our home for a life time! We can’t thank you enough. Blown us away is an understatement! You made the day enjoyable you let us be us and just did your thing! You’re communication was amazing!! Considering we were in Australia and you NZ, the communication was flawless and seamless. We have had nothing but racing reviews from family and friends. The most grateful newly married couple, Mr and Mrs Williamson

Sonja and her team were so professional in capturing so many memories on our wedding day - from first contact with her over Skype to the photography on our wedding day, to delivery of all our photos. We would highly recommend her to anyone and everyone. Sonja and her team made us feel extremely comfortable in front of the camera, unobtrusive as they guided us through the day. Sonja took the time to understand what our priorities were, and she was very flexible in her approach. It was so important having someone local to Waiheke Island as we are based overseas and didn’t have the opportunity to visit the venue with Sonja before the wedding, Sonja already knew our venue back to front and knew the best photo spots for different parts of the day, different weather etc. We have so many favourite photos to choose from. Thanks for making our choice so hard! 😊

Sonja was an amazing photographer, we couldn’t have asked for a more calm, chill and super nice person to do our photography for our wedding day, such a pleasure to work with! Sonja scoped out the venue before the big day and was super flexible with any changes made at the last minute. She kept us comfy with being in front of the camera and nothing was too hard for her! We love the outcome of our photos, especially the sparkler shoot! I’d recommend having Sonja a part of your day to capture those special moments  Thanks so much!

We recommend Sonja to anyone looking for a talented, kind and generous photography professional to capture the magic of your wedding day. She helped us work out what we wanted and delivered a stunning collection of memories that we'll treasure for life. What we loved most was how relaxed she made us feel in front of the camera - giving us the space and freedom to let go and have fun. She's also an absolute pro when it comes to dealing with kids, which made the experience extra special for our family.
