A big thank you to Amanda for making our wedding day so incredibly special. Amanda was sensational with her professional and fun way and at the same time and you just felt comfortable with her and that she really cared about our day and experience. Fantastic with organising our guests for their formal photo shots and then the natural crowd and individual shots are better than we ever expected. She has a natural skill of making people feeling relaxed and not shy of being photographed. Amanda was so helpful with advice on where to have photos taken, the best locations made all the difference.
When we went to see Amanda to view the photos, again very professional and caring. We now have a wonderful memory of our day thanks to Amanda and her wonderful skill of making people look so good in our photos. We cannot speak highly enough on what a wonderful photographer Amanda is and a warm caring person. Thank you Amanda.
If you’re looking for a photographer for your wedding, we highly recommend Amanda,

If you are looking for amazing photos please choose Amanda.
Amanda played a big part in making sure our day was successful without us feeling like we were crowded or rushed. She kept us on time and feeling comfortable all day. When we recieved our pictures I honestly could not stop looking at them as I didnt realise how many special moments Amanda captured without me knowing.
When I consider what beautiful pictures we have to remember the best day of our lives I know we made the right decision.

We chose Amanda after seeing some of her photos online. We are happy to say the photos came out great. Amanda has the right personality for the job, she is bubbly but also assertive enough to keep the photos flowing which helped with the timing on the day,
We would highly recommend Amanda and would happily use her again in the future.

Amanda was a true asset on our big day. She managed to make everyone feel comfortable but was firm enough to make sure she got the shots she wanted and that we love. She managed to capture all the small details – our bouquets, the place settings, the cake – that we’d otherwise forget about and now we can treasure forever. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her services to anyone and couldn’t have asked for better memories of our wedding.

We are so happy with our wedding photos! Amanda really captured the emotion and energy of the day. She was very organized and kept us all in check on the day and on time. From our first meeting she made us both feel comfortable and confident in her ability. We highly recommend her to all and would definitely use her services again in the future!

We used Amanda for our wedding in February. She was fantastic! She kept everything flowing and on time so guests weren’t waiting too long for us after the ceremony. She made everyone feel comfortable and her turn around with the photos was just under a week! We felt the photos were really good and worth the cost. My husband was very happy as he said she caught many “moments” that were real and not staged and that he really liked that about our photos. The effort that Amanda put into our slideshow is shown it’s absolutely perfect I think I have watched it almost 100 times!! If I could give any bride a small piece of advice, it would be to spend the extra dollars on a great photographer as these photos are for the rest of your life and Amanda’s are the perfect touch to a special day that is remembered for ever.

After seeing a photo that Amanda had done on her Facebook page i was very interested to meet with her in regards to my wedding photos. I met with her at a wedding show and what a bubbly fun person she was! After viewing the quality of photos, we booked her for our beach wedding. She was so easy to deal with and the process right up to the wedding was stress free with her organisation.
Amanda on the day was so relaxed and fun to be around which made for the most amazing shots as it just felt natural. She was happy to do anything to get that right shot… even standing on a VERY windy wharf!
We cant thank Amanda enough for the amazing wedding photos we have today. She is a very talented & professional lady!

Cole and I wanted to have a beach wedding and get married in Fiji. We really wanted to find someone very professional and someone who would be happy to come to Fiji with us ( we wanted to meet our photographer before going over) and not charge arm and leg. We were really lucky to come across Amanda as we were looking through wedding magazines. I instantly loved her work, so we met up an the rest was history!
It was really easy to work with Amanda and she was really flexible. The focus of our wedding was to have fun yet to have beautiful special moments and Amanda captured all of this in a very natural yet professional way. She was very great with attention to detail also, as we had a lot of personal touches to our wedding and we wanted to have those memories which we have now.
She was very fun to work with and took charge, which was great as I could focus on having fun with my husband and our bridal party and not worry about anything. I’ve been a part of a bridal party before where I found having photos taken of us for 2 hours was extremely boring and almost dreadful but with Amanda it was fun.
I would highly recommend Amanda to anyone as she really has a feel for what people like and will make your day magical and fun. I hope that I can get
Amanda to shoot some other special moments in my life in the future.

I had a same sex wedding with my partner and Amanda was our photographer. She is such a warm, kind-hearted and humorous photographer. She recorded every single detail of the wedding, in a short period of time. The most important was, we were treated as an ordinary couple so we felt very comfortable and relaxed. The most impressive was, she contacted us the day after the wedding about sending the finished photos to us. She is so efficient and the USB is elegantly designed. She captured our different faces and every memorable moments. The whole thing made us felt perfect.

I first met Amanda at my cousin’s wedding in April 2014. I knew from that minute on that I was having her as my wedding photographer no matter what!!!! I even changed my wedding date so that I could have her… & it was definitely worth it!
What can I say….Amanda is wonderful!! Full of enthusiasm, great ideas, passion for her job, fun to be around, easy going, and she can organise everyone perfectly! She has a great way of making everything stress free and fun! Memories were made that day and many because of the people involved!
I couldn’t have asked for anything more from my wedding photographer at all, we are totally over the moon with the photos. Captured every moment.
I would recommend Amanda to everyone…!! You won’t regret it! I know if I ever need a photographer for anything else in the future, I will be using her again!
Wedding Date: March 14, 2015
We decided to use local businesses for our wedding and found Amanda’s photography website, stood out from the rest. She arranged to meet us and immediately put us at ease. She explained her “style” and the options that were available. Her suggestions for the photos on the day were so helpful. We found Amanda to be highly organised and she certainly knew her “stuff”. We were absolutely blown away with the warts and all photos. We have a wonderful record of our wedding and the memories will last forever. We highly recommend her.

Dave and I worked with Amanda’s husband and she had done photography for us at work (events/product shots etc). She’d mentioned her real passion was Weddings and after seeing some of her work after we got engaged - there was no way we would have had anyone else on our Wedding Day.
Knowing Amanda prior definitely put Dave and I at ease on the day, but those who didn’t know her (my bridesmaids and family) commented on how relaxed and at ease Amanda made them feel. She’s a pro at rallying the troops for the group photos and keeping things moving on the day.
For cost reasons, we decided not to book a videographer as well as Amanda and we don’t regret it - as Amanda captured our day in photos perfectly. Her slideshows are fantastic and put to our wedding music - we along with our friends, family have watched them over and over.
With Amanda, you don’t just get wedding photos, you get absolute top-notch service. Amanda has brilliant connections and we found our Celebrant, DJ, Hair & Make-up stylist and Caterer through her recommendations. We like to say we had the A team on duty that day, as everything ran sooo smoothly.
We would highly recommend Amanda to anyone looking for a wedding photographer!

We were lucky enough to have Amanda Wignell photograph our wedding in March this year. Amanda was super professional and organised and is such an amazing photographer. Her ability to hustle people into place for the group photos is priceless! To top it all off Amanda helped me to stay calm throughout the day and because of that our pictures are absolutely beautiful. They are natural and capture our love perfectly, we couldn’t be happier! I highly recommend Amanda to anyone!

When we first meet Amanda, We got alone so well! Me and my husband felt like we could be ourselves around her. She made everything so easy in fount of the camera. Our photos are awesome. Everyone comments on them, on how wonderful they look. It was raining that day and the photos look still looked amazing!
She really made our day. So we thank you so much Amanda for making our memories even more valuable!

Amanda is a fantastic photographer. We met her at the Ascension Wedding Fair and booked her then and there due to the high quality of her work and her friendly personality.
Our wedding photos are brilliant and Amanda really made us feel at ease while taking our pictures. She made us laugh and kept things running smoothly (she has excellent time management). The bridal party thought she was great as well.
We highly recommend her

We met Amanda at the Whangarei Bridal expo early 2006 and spoke to her about our upcoming wedding in Fiji, her professional attitude and confidence was what sold her for me so we flew her to Plantation Island Fiji to capture out special day and I’m so glad we did.
Her photos were/are amazing and the way she controls the crowd is second to none.
Meetings with Amanda before and after the wedding insured we got exactly what we were after and I would certainly recommend her to anyone wanting to get Married in New Zealand or abroad.
Since 2006 Amanda has photographed at least 4 of my friends weddings including My Brother in Laws wedding again in Fiji in 2012
Wedding Date: August 31, 2006
Instantly clicked with Amanda at the bride & groom show 2011 and booked her right then & there.
On they day we shared tears of joy & laughter and had lots of fun.
I have had numerous compliments from friends, family & work colleagues saying our wedding photos taken by Amanda would have to be the best they’ve seen yet. And i’m probably a bit biased myself, but i think they are too!

Amanda was our wedding photographer and we couldn’t have asked for a more professional and down to earth lady to photograph our special day.
Enjoyable and stress free, we would use Amanda’s skills again in a heartbeat. Awesome job and absolutely amazing photos Price range was very reasonable for the quality of photos.
Wedding Date: November 11, 2011
We loved Amanda Wignell. Not only did she capture amazing shots of our wedding, she created artwork also.
She made me laugh when i was getting stressed at home getting ready, and nothing was a problem.
We had our family before we got married, so our children and nieces and nephews were at the wedding ceremony. She was so tolerant of my unwilling baby who needed me to stop everything (in the middle of the photo shoot) so i could tend to him.
As most weddings, we ran late, and this was not a problem for the AWP team. Her assistant was lovely.
We have also had family shots done, which we are so in love with.
You are amazing amanda. We recommend to everyone we know getting married!
