About Charlotte Kiri Photography, Wanaka &  Queenstown

I work with a loving, contagious spirit that allows anyone to relax in front of the camera and have fun during the process. Wanaka has been my home for over 13 years, where I live with my husband Bruno and our 7-year-old daughter Audrey.


My background as a qualified journalist and photographer, gives me a trained eye to capture things as they happen, with attention to the small details. I have traveled the world competing as a professional snowboarder, the mountains are in my blood and where I feel at home. If you want to have your photos on a mountain-top… Let’s do it!


Behind the scenes, I work tirelessly to capture every fleeting moment of authentic emotion. Capturing natural images ~ ones that reflect the connections with the people you love the most.


In 2021 we were named a Rangefinder 30 Rising Stars of Wedding Photography a career highlight.




Facts about me:

I love extreme sports: snowboarding, surfing, wakeboarding.

I am a savoury, over sweet girl – cheese is life!

I have a cat called Zorro he’s a rescue kitty.

I love to laugh and think I think I was a comedian in a past life.

I worked as a Journalist/reporter, but ended up loving photography more, because my soul is too kind to handle controversial stories.

I cry at every wedding because I end up loving all my couples and feel like I’m emotionally invested.

I’ve been married for 9-years, so understand everything which comes with planning a wedding from the both sides of the coin.

I met my husband at the Wanaka skate park.

I always wear a hat

My favourite images to capture are emotional moments – dads, mum’s and grooms crying are up there as a favourite moment of the day.

We danced to Adele ‘One and Only as our first dance’ but I also love hip hop and lots of other genres of music

I love confetti!

Charlotte Kiri is my first and middle name.

Seeing my photos in print makes me so, so happy!

I can’t wait to hear from you xoxo
