Candid and creative wedding photography is what I enjoy most. Every wedding is different so I set out to capture the story of your day. I capture the special moments, the thoughtful details, the hugs, kisses & tears. I also make sure to get great dramatic images.
I have four wedding photography packages to cover a range of budgets but I can also create a custom package just for you. All packages come with an online gallery and High Res Images so you are not locked into getting your prints only from us. You can now also purchase quality canvas prints as well as quality regular prints directly from your online gallery as an option.
I also offer Stop-Motion wedding videos which are a really fun and creative way to capture the day!

Kelly was an absolute pleasure to work with. All of our photos turned out beautifully, and she really took the time to listen and understand our vision and expectations. I would definitely recommend to everybody!

Kelly was the first and only photographer that we met with for our big day, and she instantly made us feel comfortable and excited about our big day. She was easy to communicate with in the leading months and was so good at helping us plan our day.
On the day, she was professional, kind, creative and efficient. She immediately bonded with our families, including our very snobbish dog! Our guests continue to comment on her skill during the big day and the resulting photos are stunning. She took two very unphotogenic people and made them beautiful. She made me feel beautiful. I would highly recommend her services to any bride looking for a relaxed, candid feel with a beautiful outcome.

Kelly & Toby are an incredible couple that know the responsibility of capturing peoples special day,
They took the time before the day to find what just want we wanted from our photographs. They arrived relaxed and blended in but knew the importance of capturing all our precious memories. Everything goes by so fast and you try and remember every detail, but Kelly & Toby made sure we can always re live the day by capturing everything; from our bearded mates who thought they looked dapper, to intimate moments we did not think anyone noticed.
Kelly has the big camera and Toby has the small one and between them took stunning shots, but also just as important they knew where to be, and when, to get the essence of our day, our family & friends, and who we are.
I am not a photo person, but thankfully they managed to make me slightly presentable next to my stunning wife Hannah. Kelly and Toby are composite professionals, but they knew how to have fun with us. We cannot recommend them highly enough.
Thank you Kelly & Toby.

We are thrilled with our wedding photos shot by Kelly Newland Photography. Brilliantly organised and executed, they are a relaxed and unintrusive wife and husband team who shimmied their way through our photos with speed, humour and precision. Kelly shoots main unit (the meat), while hubby shoots second unit (the veges). It’s a fantastic collaboration, which means we got a brilliantly unique take on the the standard shots, plus some epic moody shots no one (not even the subjects) were aware of.

When complete strangers are moved to tears by your wedding photos, you know you were onto a winner with your photographer. This hasn’t happened once, but several times where people who weren’t present at our wedding or even know us that well, have gotten emotional over Kelly’s photography. People have also repeatedly said ‘these are the best wedding pictures I’ve ever seen’ and Ed and myself can vouch for that too. Not only because it was OUR wedding, but how amazingly clever Kelly had been to capture the emotion of the day itself. And she did this so beautifully and artistically from the bride getting ready to us dancing and partying late into the night!
Kelly is an incredibly talented photographer. Photography is not just about the perfect image but the story the images tell and that is why it was so difficult choosing a limited number of pictures for our album, when all 400 of them had its own unique story. Our three small children were present and she so cleverly captured those precious moments people wouldn’t have normally seen.
As we know, putting a wedding together is a full time job and not to mention a stressful one. If you can eliminate any of the workload you would. When Kelly met with me for our first consultation she removed half the workload in a single meeting. Kelly suggested florists, makeup and hair artists, information about venues and provided helpful input on potential for the day. Basically, she’s an event manager! I felt instantly at ease and reassured after that meeting and instinctively knew she would do a great job for us.
I hadn’t given her an extensive brief of what pictures we wanted and I didn’t really need to as it was evident in the photography she produced. She knew exactly the shots to be covered and the unique locations to shoot them in. She was quick and efficient and fantastic at directing not just the bridal party but the entire guest list!
When we received our wedding album and went through the photos, we were transported back in time to our wedding day. It’s as though we were watching a movie and this is exactly how you want to feel when this big day goes by in a flash especially after months of hard work. You feel it was all so worth it when you take a look at Kelly’s work.
Kelly works very closely with her husband Toby in the before, during and after stages and this results in work of the very highest quality.
There are so many words to describe Kelly’s photography, but if I had to use one it would be magical! And I am sure, that is what every bride and groom would want to remember their wedding day by.
All I can say is thank you so much to Kelly and her husband Toby who she works very closely with to ensure the very highest quality of work!

There are so many decisions to make when you are planning the wedding of your dreams. When researching photographers online we were astounded by the amount who didn’t put their packages on and wanted an email/contact to discuss prices. Kelly’s style of photography was exactly what we were looking for and to then see that she had a range of packages available sealed the deal.
Once meeting Kelly my husband and I knew we’d made the right decision. Clear, organised, detailed and she had a relatable and easy manner which we were drawn to straight away. All of my ‘silly’ questions (lip colour, veil/no veil) leading up to the big day were answered easily and with an honesty and advice I appreciated.
The day itself could not have been easier. Kelly directed us (without over directing) and put us, our wedding party and guests at ease immediately. Waiting for the sneak peaks was agonising but very quick! We were blown away and couldn’t have been happier with the way Kelly captured our day.
Her incredible eye for detail, artistic flair for angles, lighting and scenes is a credit to her.
Kelly Newland - seamless, professional, artistic, personable, calm.

We couldn’t have asked for better. Kelly was wonderful to work with and very professional. We were so happy that we made the right choice. Kelly was one of the best parts of our special day.
When we first met with Kelly, we were blown away with her ideas and how easy she made the whole process. We had met with other photographers before but we immediately knew that Kelly was the one for us. She made us feel relaxed throughout the day and knew exactly what to do.
My wife and I would recommend Kelly to anyone. I can’t imagine anyone doing a better job.
Thank you so much Kelly

We planned our wedding from London and found Kelly via her website. As soon as we viewed her online gallery we both knew we wanted to have her as our Photographer! Kelly understood the stress of planning everything from afar and arranged a Skype meeting so we could meet ‘face to face’ which was great to be able to touch base. She is so down to earth that we felt like we were in very capable hands. Her lead gave us structure around our big day and she had brilliant ideas for our photos. Everyone we have shown our photos to absolutely loves them and more importantly so do we!
I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Kelly, she was amazing!

We had the pleasure of having Kelly capture our big day in early 2015.
From our first meeting with Kelly to working with her to plan the order of events for the big day (and she helped hugely to give us a sense of when certain things had to be done on the day) to having our special day photographed by her, we were more than impressed and put at ease immediately. Kelly takes the most beautiful photos, is incredibly organised and gets an array of fantastic shots without you having to spend much time away from your wedding guests. We also found the cost of Kelly’s photo packages very reasonable in comparison to what other photographers charge.
We enjoyed being photographed so much by Kelly and had great fun taking part in different shots including spraying a bottle of bubbles at the camera (an incredible shot which we love!). During the ceremony Kelly just blended into the background and we were amazed at the moments she caught on camera without us being aware of her taking these. She also managed to take our large list of family photos at record speed!
We were over the moon when we first saw our photos – they are truly everything and more and everyone who has seen them has been blown away by the beautiful images Kelly captured on our special day.
If you want to enjoy your wedding while having it photographed by a highly professional and incredibly organised photographer who puts a lot of thought into possible photo settings, puts you at ease and makes you feel relaxed, then we highly recommend booking Kelly!
Wedding Date: February 28, 2015
From the moment we met Kelly we felt very relaxed and we knew we would be in capable hands.
Kelly has a real passion for this industry and it really comes across in her photos.
The photos were impressive and well presented.
We highly recommend Kelly and making our wedding day stress free.
Thank you Kelly for wonderful memories of our special day which we will treasure forever.
Wedding Date: April 5, 2015
Kelly was easy to get along with and is a very warm person. We loved her relaxed Southland nature. We would recommend her to anyone. Fantastic photos, we are thrilled with them. Kelly is full of energy and nothing is a problem. Kelly captured all the special moments we were looking for including speeches, our first dance and individual portraits of the bridal party.
Wedding Date: March 7, 2015
We choose Kelly Newland as our wedding photographer because she shot my brothers wedding and the photographs were stunning. We have just received our photo’s and we are delighted. Kelly did exactly what we wanted and has really captured the atmosphere of the day. We also asked for a stop motion film which they did happily. It’s a 4.5 minute video of 1000 photo’s and it is the most amazing thing I’ve ever seen. I would highly recommend Kelly Newland for your wedding. She is professional, organised, personable, creative and great to deal with.
Thanks again Kelly xxx

We used Kelly Newland for our wedding photographs at Peregrine in February 2015, The photos really surpassed our expectations, they were absolutely fantastic. Kelly really listened to us as we wanted some arty type shots. I would completely recommend Kelly, she is great to work with, relaxed and an amazing photographer.
Wedding Date: February 7, 2015
Getting brilliant photos of our wedding was really important to us and we interviewed a number of photographers. We clicked with Kelly immeadiately and her advice was invaluable in planning our wedding. Communication was prompt and easy.
On the day Kelly was professional, friendly and really easy to get along with. Our photoshoot was heaps of fun and all of our guest loved her too - which made for some great photos of the reception!
We’ve just picked up our photos, which were turned round really quickly, and are delighted with how they’ve turned out.
Wedding Date: December 30, 2014
We knew from the very beginning that finding someone we can trust to capture all the special moments of the day was our number one priority.
Kelly’s professionalism and ability to put one at ease shone through from our first meeting. It was really cold and rainy on our wedding day, but Kelly was upbeat and encouraging throughout. She was great at giving just enough direction, and letting us be “us” at the same time.
We know our expectations have been exceeded because we cannot help but smile and recount those special moments whenever we look at our beautiful photos. Most importantly, we will get to enjoy these memorable moments with our kid and grandkids (one day!) for years to come.
Kelly was wonderful to work with and we would absolutely highly recommend her!!
Wedding Date: August 30, 2014
We were so happy with the photographs that Kelly and Toby took at our wedding!! As soon as they arrived at the hotel the excitement began and they immediately put my nerves at ease. Their photos captured our day perfectly and they did everything we asked of them and more! I would highly recommend them to any of my friends.
Wedding Date: August 9, 2014
We can’t recommend these guys enough! We’re so happy with our wedding photos and we’ve had so many nice comments about them since posting them to Facebook.
They run a tight ship, make you feel completely at ease, have some great ideas and it all feels really natural. For us, is was about not being away form the wedding too long for our family photos, we nailed them and got they all came out great, they gave us everything we wanted and more.
We love their system and the way they deliver the final product, it’s really professional and you get more than your moneys worth.
They also give something more than traditional wedding photos, they have some great angles and ideas, the perfect eye for it.
And they’re really nice people!
Wedding Date: August 9, 2014
Not only did Kelly and her husband take stunning images of our wedding, they managed to capture our individual personalities and the indescribable, intimate moments of that day - it’s exactly what we wanted in a wedding photographer.
They put us at ease, made us feel relaxed on an incredibly stressful day, and actually mentored us through some of the confusing bits - they’ve been to so many weddings! There was also something nice about having a female photographer with the ladies and a male photographer with the boys. It’s a very intimate time, so I guess it’s like same sex doctors.
I cant’ recommend them enough. They even won New Zealand Institute of Professional Photography awards with our pictures. What more do you want?
Wedding Date: March 1, 2014
From day one of being in contact with Kelly, I felt totally at ease with our choice of photographer. We planned our wedding from the UK but we had a Skype meeting with Kelly to talk through the details of our wedding and she was so friendly and helpful and clearly knew exactly what she was doing.
When we arrived in NZ my husband and I met Kelly for a coffee and a chat, which again, left us feeling really excited about our choice! Leading up to the day Kelly always replied to our emails promptly and was always happy to answer any queries we had. On our wedding day, Kelly was absolutely incredible, she fitted into our schedule, calmed me down when needed, was so professional and discrete. I am not really a person who likes having photos taken, but Kelly made both of us feel so at ease, we had a few giggles when doing the shoot with my husband and I, and she managed to capture the incredibly special moments and details of our wedding.
The quality of the photos are incredible. We have had so many comments about them and Kelly managed to capture the whole day perfectly. Whenever I look back at them it really is like re-living the most special day of our lives. We are so happy that we chose Kelly and my only regret is that I did not leave a review earlier!
Choosing your wedding photographer is a tough decision, but I cannot recommend Kelly enough. I have no doubt that you will be happy with your choice if you chose her!
Thank you so much Kelly and Toby!

I cannot express enough how much I recommend Kelly Newland Photography as the greatest ever wedding photographers.
Not only are our photos beautiful works of art (with us in them!) but Kelly’s presence on the day was a cool breeze of calm, gentle efficiency in a whirlwind of madness.
She negotiated my family and friends with ease, told me to breathe when I forgot, and took stunning photos of every detail of the whole amazing, perfect day, which I otherwise would hardly have remembered at all.
Thank you Kelly and Toby!
