Katrina takes more than photos, she captures moments of feeling. We had one of the wettest days in March for our wedding and Katrina’s ability to enter into the joy of the occasion helped us to relax and seize the day, resulting in the most stunning wild West Coast photos we could have asked for. She is a true artist.

I'm Katrina, an Auckland Wedding and Portrait Photographer in New Zealand.
And I freaking love what I do!

I started photographing professionally about 12 years ago.
Band photography and fashion was where I tested the waters but I found my real joy in capturing portraits and love stories.
My passion has journeyed with me from commercial portrait studios, to travelling around the world, under the sea and on top of mountains.
All in the name of love.
I'm clear on what lights my creative fire and gets me jumping with joy;
natural light, genuine connection and laughter. 
I believe in capturing authentic moments as they happen, focusing on candid emotion.

When I’m not photographing, I’m raising my children, helping woman as a birth doula, practicing yoga, surfing, and playing any kind of string instrument.
I’m a straight-talker, not easily embarrassed.
I adore coffee, a good whisky and sunshine.
I dislike wearing shoes and never finish my hot drinks.
My hands are usually covered in paint, pastel or some other medium.

I have a huge story to tell, but I want to know yours!
