I'm Zahn, a wedding photographer based in Auckland, New Zealand.
I photograph honest moments, beautiful places, and folks who believe love is worth celebrating.
Between my hometown and across the globe, I've photographed hundreds of weddings now. Visit my blog to see some of these wonderful events - from a week-long spiritual pilgrimage in Sri Lanka, a German-Jewish wedding in Jerusalem, to a wedding-themed beer festival in Raglan, New Zealand.

This is the stuff I want to document. Because human connection will never go out of fashion.

The hardest part of having Zahn as our photographer is choosing which photos to print and hang on the wall! Seriously though, he made the whole process so enjoyable and relaxing – I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him. From the standard family must-have photos, to some truly magical ones (they look like something from Alice in Wonderland, you wouldn’t know there was anyone else there but us); from photographs on the beach, to in the pouring rain; I am so very thankful that I came across Zahn!

When Matt and I became engaged we knew that our first vendor to contact was Perry and Zahn. They had previously shot my older brother and sister in-laws wedding in Rotorua and the results were absolutely incredible. For our own wedding in Taupo we were provided an indispensable wealth of knowledge throughout the lead up and the actual weekend itself. Our bridal shoot was split over two days, the wedding itself on the Saturday followed by photos of Matt and I out on the Desert Road and National Park on the Sunday. The photos of the entire weekend are unbelievable, both Perry and Zahn kept Matt and I at absolute ease throughout the whole process, they managed to capture candid intimate moments whilst remaining completely inconspicuous. Our guests noted, like we did at my brother’s wedding, that not once was their view of the ceremony obscured as it was photographed nor did they notice their own photos being taken throughout the day. We cannot more highly recommend hiring Perry and Zahn as the photographers for your wedding, their work is truly an investment.

We had the great privilege to have Zahn as our wedding photographer in Auckland. As we were planning our wedding back home from Perth, we had our challenges. However, photography was not one. The process prior to the wedding was smooth, thoughtful, and professional, and continued throughout our wedding day. He was very knowledgeable in the choices of locations surrounding Auckland which was helpful because we did not have the opportunity to visit ourselves before the wedding. Zahn’s tranquil and calm demeanour made everyone comfortable throughout the day as he captured intimate memories. He understands the meaning and purpose of weddings very well and this is lovingly expressed in the photographs. His professionalism shows in his fast turn around times without compromising the quality of the photos. We absolutely fell in love with the photographs taken. We wanted the photos to be a natural progression throughout the wedding and Zahn completely delivered. He is a young talented artist and we highly recommend Zahn as your photographer.

From start to finish, Zahn was a dream to work with. During our first Skype call, his friendly and professional manner put us at ease, and we felt confident that we were in capable hands – even from the other side of the world! When we met in person, we were again impressed by his professionalism and proactiveness in helping us to plan photos and select locations for our special day. On our wedding day, Zahn was everything we hoped for in a photographer. He fitted in perfectly and captured truly special moments that reflected the essence of the day. When we received our highlights clip a few days after the wedding, we couldn’t stop watching it – the photos were beautiful and it was like reliving our wedding day over and over again. Absolute magic. Thank you Zahn!
