Directory Photography in Auckland Central
Hi we are Sophia Bayly and Simon Moore and based in Auckland, New Zealand and travel anywhere around New Zealand and the world to take photos.
Documentary style storytelling, or ‘Reportage’, is our passion. Images and stories presented in an authentic way that captures true emotion.
We specialise in photography and stop motion video.
Words cannot express how happy we are with the service provided by Si and Sophia
Outstanding photography by 2 amazingly professional people. Their relaxed and calm presence on our wedding day made everything perfect
We also had an engagement shoot a couple of months before the wedding. I would definitely recommend this to anyone considering it. It helped us feel relaxed in front of the camera and it meant that on the big day we weren’t nervous about photos at all!
Amazing Amazing Amazing!!

We had the most incredible day. Truly a day we’ll never forget. Although the photos and stop motion really speak for themselves I thought I was worth saying a little more….
The photos captured the most amazing memories. We’ve had so many people comment. Simon and Sophia (Bayly& Moore) captured our day in the most exquisite way. They are amazing people and so easy to deal with. Super talented and creative too. Everything about our interaction leading up to and on the special day was great. We were stoked to have them as a part of our day. Love your work guys. Thanks again.

Soph and Si (Bayly&Moore;) were EXCELLENT wedding photographers. The pictures they took were absolutely gorgeous and to a standard above the rest. We were very happy with them and we got so many compliments about them too.
Soph and Si were very professional in a warm and friendly way. They got the best out of the people and environment they were taking pictures of. We also loved the Stop Motion they created for us. It was fun, quirky and captured the essence of the day in just a few minutes. Great if you want to show someone your wedding who couldn’t attend and it’s a special keepsake.
We HIGHLY recommend Bayly & Moore.

Simon and Sophia are incredible. They are amazing to work with, as they create such a peaceful, relaxed and fun environment throughout the day, making the photos so natural.
We are so impressed with the photos, they captured our wedding day perfectly and Si and Sophia’s creativity shows through so beautifully, producing beautiful, creative photos that are so personalised to us as a couple and the day itself. The stop motion is amazing too! It is so great to have something covering the whole day, that is fun, and really captures the vibe of the day, we are so happy to have that as a record to show the generations to come!
Si and Sophia are so easy to work with, incredibly helpful, and the loveliest people around. Everyone has been so impressed with the photos and stop motion they created for our wedding, as are we. I recommend them to everyone I know getting married .

Sophia and Simon are outstanding people as well as photographers. Thanks to their superb craftsmanship and planning we have incredible shots to remember our day along with a gorgeous stills and audio video.
They were unendingly professional, personable and we’d recommend them to anyone. We feel that our album is world class and that the result was better than we could have anticipated. Our wedding party and guests were made to feel so comfortable and I loved their enthusiasm. The ultimate compliment for any artist surely is that several of our friends have also hired Sophia and Simon to shoot their wedding as well.

This crazy talented duo’s work make my heart skip a beat!
Sophia and Simon managed to document and capture Rhys and I and every sweet little moment inbetween. They captured the love!
I am amazed at their attention to detail and documentive approach. Their style is so unique and oh how I love the warm light and nostalgic glow that appear in my photos.
I hoped for stylised images with an editorial edge but never dreamt I would get such stunning results.
I hunted high and low for exceptional photographers and these guys are it.
Sophia and Simon are true Storytellers.

I’d highly recommend Bayly and Moore for wedding photography. They were so accommodating and lovely to work with. A lot of their work is quite vintage looking (which is beautiful) and I wanted the same style of creative shooting, however using more natural colour - they were more than happy to work with my fussy needs and delivered amazing photos which my husband and I will treasure forever.

Sophia and Simon were absolutely fantastic to deal with, from the pre-wedding location prep right through the event to their prompt turnaround time and professional photos. I am amazed at the shots they managed to take and the angles they got during the ceremony, because I didn’t see even them, yet the photos prove they were everywhere! Aside from this they managed to take a rainy day and make it look magical, put our comfort above their own and really went the extra distance to capture how great the days was for us. I am more than pleased with the final product and proudly show anyone who is the least bit interested in seeing them, giving full credit to Sophia and Simon! I wouldn’t hesitate for a second to recommend Bayly & Moore to anyone thinking of planning a wedding.
