Candy is a fantastic photographer and was really great to work with leading up to our wedding and especially on the day.

Thanks for shooting our wedding!

Candy was fantastic, it was a pleasure to have her at our wedding. She is warm and kind, very professional and listened to what we wanted. From our first meeting with her it was like having an old friend arrange your photos, she made everything easy and relaxed.
Candy had a lot more experience with our venue than we did and we left it up to her to suggest the best photo spots. As soon as she arrived she got on and did stuff in her wonderfully easygoing manner, she was really helpful and kept us all on track.
She is fun, bubbly, fantastic to deal with and I really enjoyed the whole photo experience. The photos are fantastic - my favourites are the ones that Candy took that I hadn’t even thought of.

We booked Candy as our photographer for our wedding after looking at her website. We had to organise our whole wedding from London but Candy was great to communicate with by email and also very professional with easy to make sense of contracts. Candy was very flexible and happy to do a site visit with us a few days before the wedding to agree where we would have photos. Candy has a natural confidence which totally put us at ease.
On the day she was perfectly discreet during the ceremony and speeches and you didn’t even notice she and her assistant were there. For the group photos she took control of heading people into position with a lovely style and made sure everyone took notice. During the wedding party photos she was great at giving direction and getting great shots, making the most of the light and the scenery.
We were blown away by the photos she took and all our friends and family have been really amazed by them too. They are unique, interesting, capture the mood and the people so well. Candy has abundance of talent as well as professionalism. I couldn’t recommend her highly enough!

We were so delighted with both our engagement and our wedding photos that Candy Capco Photography took.
Candy is an amazing photographer, not only are her photos just beautiful she is professional and wonderful to work with. As a team we enjoyed working with them to capture our special day. They were unobtrusive and very considerate of our needs and that of our guests.
It was an enjoyable experience being photographed by Candy Capco Photography.
We have highly recommend Candy Capco Photography to our friends and family wanting professional photography services.
We just love our photos!!!
Wedding Date: September 15, 2012
Working with candy was amazing. She is both friendly, professional, well organised, supportive, creative, precise & punctual.
She has excellent eye with camera & is very creative. She was very helpful in suggesting & planning our day also. She was very punctual. Had fabulous ideas & well worth the money we paid.
Candy also rushed our order to get ready before we left for Italy shortly after the wedding. The photos & album were of exceptional quality 150% satisfaction.
She followed up with everything from meeting before hand to following up after the wedding. Very professional, friendly..what more could I ave wanted.
Would highly suggest candy over any other photographer, and I know a lot of them!
Wedding Date: June 2, 2012
Candy was fantastic, she is so professional yet easy to be around. Hayden and I are not camera shy but it isn’t something we are overly used to… but Candy got us to relax and laugh our way through the engagement session and the wedding day itself.
My sister recommended Candy to me… she had wanted her for her own wedding but Candy was already booked, that’s how popular she is!!
We would happily recommend Candy and Jay to anyone, not only does she deliver an amazing product you get it promptly and presented in a cute box with the option of a really handy (Candy Capco) memory stick!
Thanks Candy, I can’t wait to have another occasion where we can use you!
Wedding Date: October 27, 2012
We were so lucky to have Candy as our wedding photographer - not only does she take the most amazing photos, she has a fantastic personality and is so incredibly easy to work with. She makes you feel so at ease and relaxed.
Our photos are breathtaking every time we look at them, we are taken back our special day and it always brings a smile to our faces. The best thing is that she was able to capture exactly how we were both feeling on the day.
Our overall rating of Candy is a small reflection of what we think of her and the amazing photo’s she produces.
Well worth every cent!
Wedding Date: September 22, 2012
Had Candy and Jay do my encore wedding shoot and she truly made me - someone who’s totally camera shy really at ease. Really appreciated how she finds the best angles and background for the shoot and just makes everything seem like a breeze. That’s what makes an awesome photographer, someone who takes the effort to bring out your personality and makes you feel so at ease.. Needless to say the photos turn out great! I highly recommend Candy!!!
Wedding Date: April 8, 2012
Candy is the most amazing photographer! She is laid back and listens to what you want. She is open to new ideas but will suggest even better ideas! She is helpful with the entire process of planning the wedding - not just the photos. On the day she works behind the scenes and is so so so helpful with all the small things like a tricky veil or wedding dress. She knows her stuff! Candy did a magnificant job of capturing our theme, our love and our friends and family. I was blown away with how she is able to capture those ‘moments’ on film, the tears, the love, the fun and the marriage. I HIGHLY recommend Candy Capco.
Wedding Date: January 21, 2012
Candy’s beautiful personality helped make our day so special and memorable. It was great to meet with her and her husband for our engagement photo session to find out what looks best.
We got married on the famous weather bomb weekend in March in Wellington. Candy helped calm my nerves whilst getting ready, even helping getting me into my dress. She captured the beautiful moment of when my dad saw me in my dress for the first time. A memory i will treasure forever.
Our photos were beautiful and professional that captured the whole theme of the day.
Wedding Date: March 2, 2012
From beginning to end, working with Candy and Jay was fantastic. When searching for a photographer we didn’t want to spend a fortune but also didn’t want to compromise on quality which is exactly what we got with Candy. Candy is happy for you to email her with any queries or details about the day and is always very prompt at responding. Our engagement session was lots of fun and Candy was great at helping us to feel relaxed and natural in front of the camera, resulting in some amazing photos. Although I was sceptical at the thought of an engagement shoot at first it was really valuable for our wedding day as it allowed Candy to get to know us and helped us to be more relaxed and comfortable in front of the camera on our wedding day. We chose an unusual date for our wedding and we loved how excited and accommodating Candy and Jay were each time we saw them as the day drew closer and on the day itself. On the day Candy and Jay were great to work with without being intrusive but always being there capturing the moments. We have over 1000 photos from our wedding and they are all fantastic, better than we could have hoped for. She photographed all the little details so beautifully and creatively such as the shoes, bouquets, rings, and cufflinks. She captured the centrepieces, mantelpieces, invitations, table seating chart, and Christmas decoration gifts for guests which were all made by us and our family over many hours, really showing the Christmas spirit and feel of our wedding. Candy was by far one of the best services we had for our wedding, especially in terms of value for money, and I would recommend her to anyone for any occasion. My favourite part about Candy’s photography though would have to be how she captures all the little moments and emotions throughout the day where you really feel like you are reliving your wedding day every time you look at her photos.
Wedding Date: December 24, 2011
Candy is an exceptional photographer who managed to completely understand and capture our day in a style very true to us.
Every photo is gorgeous and Candy was also easy to contact and very professional to deal with.
she gave us an accurate timeline of when to expect digital and hard copies.
we are so happy with out photos and our album also, my workmates commented that the album looked like ‘something out of a wedding magazine’
we also decided to upgrade our album to a queensbury album which was a great move as it is exceptional quality and will last a lifetime.
the only slight downside and this is something i should have communicated more clearly, is i wished we had photos of the preparation as well, by then time she arrived hair and makeup were finished, i didnt realise we would miss out on these photos when we were organising what time she would arrive.
that being said everything else is so perfect, i don’t even miss those photos.
i wouldnt hesitate to recommend candy to anyone looking for a photographer for any occasion.
Wedding Date: December 29, 2012
Candy was wonderful at our wedding in December last year, she really went out of her way to be helpful and the pictures are AMAZING!Everyone who has seen them has been really impressed….I would recomend her to any bride, as she was one of our best decisions:-)
Wedding Date: December 3, 2011
As a couple we were delighted when we first saw Candy’s work and thrilled when Candy along with Jay did our wedding.
Neither of us are very photogenic or like having our photo taken but Candy made it enjoyable and fun and even made us look great. She is natural, fun and friendly and has a way of capturing the day and moment without being obtrusive.
Very easy to deal with and fast and efficient. We feel she captured our wedding just the way we wanted and more. They knew what photos to get and got them plus more.
We would highly recommend them to anyone and found the engagement shoot to be fantastic and a must do for everyone.
Wedding Date: October 29, 2011
It takes a really good photographer to coax photos out of people who normally avoid cameras at all cost.
We asked Candy to take our photos for our small wedding at very short notice after looking at her website.
We were so impressed with whole process from the meeting with Candy to discuss initial ideas, to the photography on the night.
Candy captured not only the bride and groom but unlike a lot of other photographers she captured the mood which allowed us to remember everything that often goes so fast on the day.
We highly recommend Candy she had a friendly approachable manner that still allowed her to give direction while still allowing us to remain calm and relaxed.
We would not hesitate to use her again in the future.
Wedding Date: April 23, 2011
Candy has just yesterday provided my fiance Graeme and I with the photos from our Engagement shoot. Oh my goodness, how can I convince everyone to let this wonderful photographer into their lives?!
We came across Candy Capco Photography by chance, and are so happy we did! With so many choices to be made, and things to think about when planning our wedding, I can’t say enough how wonderful it feels to know we’ve got one thing absolutely right! Thanks so much for bringing us some peace Candy!
Candy captures moments so beautifully. I don’t need to say much as you can tell from her website, what a wonderful eye Candy has for love. She has a gentle presence when she’s working. Our engagement shoot felt like going on a date together and we forgot to pose completely! Lucky Candy knew what she was doing and has given us something we will treasure so much. We cant wait to show the Grand-kids! Hopefully Candy will be there to do their photos too! .
On the dollars and cents side of things, you’ll be astounded at the value. Graeme films weddings professionally and I am a big photography enthusiast so photography was high on the wedding priority list. We were blown away when our favourite artist was half our budget! And to be able to have an engagement shoot included too, where we were able to get more familiar with Candy and Jay beforehand, along with having a pre-wedding look at our lives to hold on to, was just so hard to believe. It’s just incredible value being offered. Better hire Candy and get married now! .
Tabitha and Graeme

I feel blessed to have found Candy to photograph our wedding. She is amazingly talented, quietly moving around capturing moments, she has an amazing artistic eye in balancing frames, catching the light and portraying the
natural beauty and personality of people.
She is calm and reassuring, just like an old friend making you feel at ease and preventing any of those stiff posed forced smile photos. Having Candy photograph our wedding was one of the best decisions we made in our wedding plans.
From the very first point of contact she made organising the photographs a breeze and was so efficient. I could not recommend her more. She made documenting our wedding fun. Get in quick before she realises how amazingly good she is and starts charging more
P.S She also has a lovely husband and the most gorgeous little girl that you just gotta meet
Kate and Ben
Happily married and photographed

I really enjoyed working with Candy on my wedding day. She was very professional—from touching base on a regular basis prior to before the big day to arriving promptly and making everyone feel at ease with her friendly personality. Last year, when I was choosing a photographer online and saw how Candy captured special moments, I was already impressed. And now, after reviewing MY photos, I knew I’d made the right choice in choosing Candy—she not only captured special moments, I would even go as far as to call some photos ‘artistic’. Not only did she ‘click’ at the right time, she captured the mood and feelings of the subject. I love Candy’s work and would strong recommend her—the price she charges is a real bargain considering the gems that she deliver!
