Wedding Photography


If you are recently engaged – Congratulations!

From the traditional to the untraditional and everything in between – your wedding day will be one of the biggest events (and family reunions) you will ever plan together as a couple!
It is a luxury event and party that deserves to be photographed so you can look back on your day for many years to come.

I have been photographing weddings for 4 years now and have had the pleasure of documenting over 50 weddings. I shoot 10-15 weddings per year and only choose to take on 2-3 Saturdays per month over summer.
I will happily photograph a wedding any day of the week and service the Northland area of New Zealand. 

I LOVE capturing natural moments as they happen but I also show attention to photographing all the details that you have spent months planning.
After the ceremony, we photograph you with your immediate family and close friends and then head off to photograph the bridal party and the couple where I will direct you in a fun and relaxed way – making the most of the scenic spots as close as possible to your venue.
I believe time spent with your guests is important so we do not need to go away for long.

Please get in touch with me via email if you like what you see and you’re interested in booking.

Sarah Marshall is bloody amazing at what she does. My wife and I had the pleasure of having Sarah as our photographer for our wedding and she was seriously amazing. Everything about our day was perfect and Sarah and her partner helped make it that way. Thank you so much, we would 100% use Sarah Marshall Photography again and would recommend to everyone.

My husband and I (ohh still not used to calling him that hehe) absolutely loved having Sarah as our photographer on our special day, she was awesome in the pouring rain and even gave us the opportunity to get a couple of sneaky shots when the sun did come out on another day. I totally recommend her to any bride to be, she was cool, calm and collected x

Thank you so much, Sarah, for being our wedding photographer! We love the photo package that you sent us and were so impressed with how well you captured so many beautiful moments from our day.

The lovely Sarah did my wedding photos in November 2016. I absolutely love my photos she is such an awesome person to work with so easy and relax. All my guest said what a lovely person she and the second photographer were. Would highly recommend Sarah to everyone and anyone. She really helped make our day perfect. Thanks again, Sarah.
