Moving Films + Photography

Hello, we are Gray + Shanel Hall – he’s a film editor and enjoys all the techie stuff, and I love weddings! We’re the couple behind Moving Films since its start in 2012 and just a couple of romantics, married joyously for 16 years and lucky enough to work side by side to shoot and create crazy, beautiful films (and just recently photos) of real couples just like you! We know in Aotearoa you’re spoilt for choice. Out of all your wedding vendors, you’ll spend your whole wedding day with your film + photo team, so if it helps to see if we’re the right fit for you we can meet face to face over a coffee, virtually on a video call or a relaxed back and forth over email. If you’d like to explore a film or film + photo package for your wedding day, get in touch!

Just wanted to write a little message again, nearly 5 years after our wedding to say that one thing we will always love and cherish from our wedding is the beautiful video you made for us. I never thought that so soon it would be one of the only videos we have of our beautiful Dad who sadly passed away suddenly a couple of weeks ago. It is now truly one of, if not the most, precious thing I have. I haven't been able to watch the full video again yet, but I love knowing that I have it, and can watch it when I am ready, to see my Dad walk me down the aisle, say his speech and share our dance together. Thank you so much again. If anyone is on the fence about whether they want to hire Moving Films - do it, its something you will cherish forever.

They were fantastic from start to finish. I fell in love with their work and their professionalism, creativity and overall service was outstanding. I failed to find anybody in NZ who could capture what they do. Their sound and image quality is second to none and the editing is excellent. They really know how to put an amazing film together. Would highly recommend to anybody looking for premium workmanship.

Moving Films were outstanding!!! Have a look at their website and see what you think for yourself. Right from the first skype meeting, my Wife and I were certain that Shanel and Gray were the right people to capture our special day. Shanel was extremely detailed in getting to know us as a couple, and making sure we were going to be happy with the final result. On the day, both of them were really easy to get on with, and professional in every aspect. It was almost like having a couple of good friends capturing our day for us. Having received our final edit of our wedding this week, we could not be happier. Our selected songs were put into the video with purpose and thought as to how they mixed with the footage. Moving Films are worth every penny. Would definitely recommend.


Moving Films are the most professional, creative and truly awesome videographers I’ve ever worked with. Our decision to have a wedding video made was very last minute and from the moment I met Shanel, I knew I was in safe hands. From the moment, Gray and his team arrived on the wedding day, i forgot they were there. They just blended into the background and quietly did their thing and capturing all the moments. When we received the first edit, I cried. It was the most beautiful video I had ever seen. Everything from the music to the video quality and the way it had been stitched together left me breathless. Out of everything we spent our money on for the wedding, this was by far the best thing. Our video captures moments that some of the photos don’t and I enjoy watching this video, far more than looking at the photos. The best thing about the video is that we get to see the emotion and happiness in the eyes of our family and friends. I have since used Moving Films for other momentous occasions in my life and I will continue to keep using them. If you don’t use them for your wedding, you are an absolute fool. These guys are truly the best!
