EMILY ADAMSON PHOTOGRAPHY » Queenstown Wedding photographer. Awarded New Zealand Classic Wedding Photographer of the year 2017 NZIPP!

Hi, & thanks for stopping by : )

The things I love most about being a Wedding Photographer is how meaningful the images will be to you and your family & how much fun wedding days are!

So what can I do for you? 

My approach will suit you if you want the emphasis on the experience, the people, real feelings, joy & love, without contriving or setting up anything fake or cheesy.

I’ve learnt in my time as a Wedding Photographer that the best bits happen when you least expect them & if you spend the whole day posing, you miss them even happening at all! What I most want for you is to have those moments & feel that emotion. You can trust that I will capture it.

I’m driven by emotion & humour, & I document it in a candid way.

If that sounds like you, I’d love for you to look around & send me a message about you & your person!



Excited to announce that I was named NZIPP (New Zealand Institute Professional Photography) Classic Wedding Photographer of 2017!

The NZIPP Iris Awards is New Zealand’s biggest awards and print competition for professional photography. The best thing for me is that these images are exactly what I love to shoot, in a photojournalistic style, at real peoples weddings.

BIG HUGE thank you’s to all my couples, who trusted me to document the real moments as they unfold. Being able to share these experiences with you and your families and preserve them is the reason wedding photography is so rewarding to me.

Thanks NZIPP! Here are the awarded images in Wedding Classic Category Iris Awards 2017.

Hahei is a place that Nate spent a lot of his childhood, but now it has even more memories for this lovely couple and their families. We dodged torrential downpours all day, until the ceremony concluded and everyone was quite dramatically caught in it. Nate and Gemma couldn’t even sign the paperwork for four hours until it dried out! After being soaked, and I mean soaked.. everyone was heartily laughing about what an experience and great story it would make. One again, I am really glad that I always travel with my raincoat, but would like to invent some sort of hands free hover umbrella. Congratulations guys, it was a wonderful day to capture. x
