Wanaka Wedding Photographer

Hi, I'm James.

Let’s get straight to the point.

I take Pre-Wedding photos that can get hundreds and thousands of social media likes, for my clients.

Customer satisfaction is my priority, and this means I need to make YOU look and feel uniquely beautiful, superior and exclusive.

I’ve been in this business for 7 years, and I'm grateful everyday for all the wonderful opportunities and moments this has put me through. 


The other bits about me

  • I am half Japanese, half Hong-Konger and culturally a New Zealander.

  • I’m married to my best friend Beki, and we have a 1 year old son named Hugh.

  • Beki (my wife) taught me how to make the bride look beautiful, and gives good critique.

  • Lived in Singapore for close to 6 years (Woodlands & Jurong)

  • I have a Bachelors Degree in Architecture (Victoria University of Wellington)
