Trilby and Lace

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. Working as a Hybrid photographer means that I offer roll film photography aswell as digital to capture your day in a unique way. I search for moments that touch the soul and reflect the personalities of the people involved, which is you guys and I love that we are all different and unique. This uniqueness is what keeps my weddings fresh and new each and every time. I photograph weddings across NZ and I am lucky enough to live on beautiful Waiheke Island and know our venues and vendors well. I have a range of prices from two hour elopements to all day coverage with two photographers Sonja x

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.
