OH MY GOODNESS!!!!! These are better than we could have ever imagined. You killed it! Thank you so much, they’re honestly incredible. Paul and I adore them all! You’re the best - GOAT status.
Wanted to quickly say thank you so very much for all of the photos. We have just started to work through them and it's so exciting being able to relive all the little parts of the day, some of which are a complete blur! We also wanted to say thank you for everything you and Bruno did on the day. You really were the glue that kept the whole day running smoothly, and we were so grateful to have you there supporting us, especially with all of the weather issues. We feel so lucky to have had you there with us on the day.
We knew booking you both for our day, we would score two awesome photographers, and after meeting you both, two awesome people. From the start, you made us feel relaxed with your expertise and knowledge, but also your humour and kindness! We knew with the weather, we would experience challenges but you both went above and beyond to make the experience as positive as you could and did everything you both could to capture our day beautifully. We know the pictures are outstanding and breathtaking and how talented Charlotte is as a photographer, but what stood out to both of us was how much you did for us, especially things that were not typically in your job description. Family members were raving about all the little things Bruno did while we were away, helping my family organise the set-up for after the ceremony and running around bringing glassware to the tables. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Thank you for sharing our special day with us and let's not forget, Charlotte sharing her sour worms and donuts.... legend!
I don’t even know where to begin, Steve and I have finally had a chance to look through the album properly now that we’re home and we are so beyond thrilled with all the photos! We’re struggling to find the words to express to you just how grateful we are to you and Bruno for capturing our day in such a special light. You have truly captured the emotions everyone showed on the day and have helped us to relive all the funny moments and heartfelt comments that we shared with our loved ones on the day. We’ll be writing a 5 star review for you on google, but I wish there was a way to rate you beyond this because it’s nothing short of what you both deserve!! We’ll keep recommending you to all of our friends in the meantime and I hope we get to see you perform again in future. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all your hard work and for capturing magic on film!
We booked Charlotte to photograph our wedding back in 2019 and with all of the craziness of the world and three postponements, we finally got to have her shoot our wedding in May 2022. On the day of our wedding Charlotte and Bruno were the ultimate photography team! Charlotte gave us much needed direction when we needed it, made us laugh, and captured so many genuine and candid moments which is exactly what we wanted. Bruno was also on hand for any and all jobs, always making sure my train and veil were styled to perfection, entertaining our son, keeping the bridal party happy and everything else which was required. Together they made the experience so fun, stress free and put us at ease as two people who don't usually like to be in-front of the camera. Charlotte also has a fantastic relationships with other vendors in the industry which made the day run smoothly. I never had to worry about what was going to happen next as Charlotte had it all under control.
Charlotte and Bruno were absolutely amazing to work with. Due to Covid, my husband and I had to plan multiple wedding celebrations and photo-shoots around the world including California, Hawaii and Queenstown - and so we had the opportunity of working with multiple photographers/videographers. We can definitely say that Charlotte and Bruno are really special and so talented, and they were one of our favourite vendors that we worked with out of multiple wedding photo-shoots we had! This one was extra special for me as it was a celebration with my side of the family in NZ, whom I haven't seen since Covid hit, and Charlotte & Bruno really went out of their way to make it extra special for us! They made us feel so comfortable on the day (almost felt like they were a part of the family) and they were so professional through every process. From the planning to the day of the wedding, we wouldn't change a thing and we were absolutely delighted to see the final album we received as well. They created memories for us that would last a lifetime and we're so grateful that we got to work with them! 🙂
James and I just wanted to say a massive thank you to both of you, sticking by us through firstly a date change and then two postponements due to covid lockdowns, but we finally got to have the absolutely most magical wedding day, what a journey it was but so worth it!! On the day you guys were so amazing, and we just so appreciate the passion and energy you bring to your work and also instill in your clients that you're working with, as you made all the photo taking not only fun but feel very natural and relaxed, which is also a testament to you guys and your great energy. We already love the photos we've been able to see so far from the sneak peek! Thank you again so much for everything, we so appreciate it!
Charlotte and Bruno were everything we wanted for our wedding - a relaxed, professional vibe, a whole lot of fun and, of course, AMAZING photos. Charlotte was the first person we met with when we started organising our wedding, and we honestly could not have done it without her. Living in Australia and planning a wedding in New Zealand seemed like a mammoth task, but with Charlotte by our side it was a breeze. She was always available to answer any questions we had about anything, and recommended some awesome people to help us with the rest of the wedding. On the day of the wedding, Charlotte and Bruno fit right in with the rest of our guests - and had everything under control for us even when the weather took a turn for the (torrential) worst. Our photos are beautiful and capture every emotion of the day. Charlotte and Bruno have created such amazing memories for us - with their photos, and with their presence and they will be cherished by us forever.
Charlotte and Bruno were our photographers for our wedding in Wanaka. We were so happy and impressed by her work ethic and professionalism that we would give her six stars if we could! Charlotte was very friendly and created plenty of humorous banter. We were smiling and laughing the whole day. She also went above and beyond prior to our wedding in reassuring us about potential rain during our ceremony, doing favours for us when things went wrong on the day. Oh did I mention that she also rocked up super early with bells on?
WOW! We were lucky enough to have Charlotte and Bruno capture our wedding in film and photo recently and they did such an AMAZING job. Not only were Char and Bruno really fun to be around, making us and our guests really comfortable, but the photos and videos are absolutely unreal. They have managed to capture every part of our day so beautifully and in a way that is authentically true to us! We hadn't thought about a videographer until we met Charlotte, and we are so glad we did, having those special moments captured on film is priceless. We really can't thank you both enough for your incredible work ethic, creativity and pure talent, you captured our day so beautifully. We love our photos, and we can’t stop watching the video over and over again! We are so happy with our photos and video, and feel so lucky that we now have these magical memories captured to treasure for years to come.
Not only is Charlotte an amazing photographer, but also such a fun, creative and energetic person to be around! We had a blast with her on our wedding day, and couldn't have been happier with our photos. Beyond anything I could've expected. Can't recommend her enough!!!
I’m going to be real with you all...Charlotte is the GREATEST photographer in the Queenstown/Wanaka area.... actually the world!! If you want the most epic and beautiful wedding photos look no further!! I cannot and I actually wont recommend anybody else. I was so so nervous on my wedding day and Charlotte kept me at ease the whole day. She even put on my fav music and calmed me completely before the ceremony. I love everything about this girl. Xxxx
We honestly could not recommend Charlotte and Bruno enough. Usually Gray and I are not very comfortable in front of the camera, but they made us forget that the camera was even there. We had the best time during the couples shoot after the wedding, it was definitely one of the highlights of the day! Not only are the photos breathtaking but every time we watch the video it takes us right back to that day. We were worried that having a video done would be quite intrusive, but in actual fact we hardly knew we were being filmed. Charlotte and Bruno truly are the dream team.
