Directory Photography in West Auckland
Perspectives Photo + Cinema is a team of photographers and filmmakers who absolutely love what we do.
We’re inspired and driven to push the boundaries of our art. To challenge thinking, excite and inspire those around us. We have the immense privilege of capturing the lives of people we meet and being able to preserve them forever. Our craft deeply moves people, brings them to tears and draws them closer together.
We are NZIPP Qualified Photographers, and all our photographic team have won multiple awards. Jared has had international success with his films, including the iconic Rugby World Cup 2011 film of fans watching the game.
We are based in Auckland, but are commissioned to shoot weddings all over NZ, and internationally, so don’t hesitate to ask us to travel. Check out our website for a selection of our work - and we’d love to hear from you!
We cannot recommend Isaac from Perspectives Photo + Cinema highly enough. His communication before, during and after our wedding was excellent. After much research, we chose to work with Isaac because we trusted him to capture our day naturally and to focus on raw, candid moments. He is calm, personable and professional - and has awesome fashion sense! We didn’t want a photographer who would use lots of filters or drastically alter images so that they didn’t accurately represent what it was actually like on the day, or someone who would spend lots of time directing us into poses. Isaac made us feel at ease and we were able to just be ourselves. We are completely in love with our photos and have already looked through them a million times to relive the best day of our lives. Numerous people have commented on Isaac’s ability to capture a ‘feeling’... the emotions and overall atmosphere of the day. Isaac went above and beyond in every way and we are so grateful for his positive energy and hard work. Thank you!

We are blown away by our incredible wedding photos, captured so beautifully by Isaac. The whole experience with Perspectives was amazing. Isaac was so professional and friendly, and also a really cool guy to hang out with! He put both of us at ease, and we really enjoyed being photographed by him on the day. We wanted to invest in an excellent photographer, and you honestly cannot beat these guys for quality and overall epicness. We have heard from so many friends how our photos are incredible, and the best they have seen. We have to agree, we are so thrilled with them! Isaac went above and beyond, and we really cannot recommend Perspectives highly enough.

Absolutely amazing. We were lucky enough to have 3 wonderful photographers on our day and the photos are incredible. I had Isaac photograph my morning and he couldn’t have been more professional. I’ve had so many people say they’re some of the best wedding photos they’ve seen, theyre all stunning. Thanks so much perspectives

AMZAZING AMAZING AMAZING!!! Isaac and Amy were unbelievable. Most importantly we are amazed and obsessed with every single photo. But equally impressed with the professionalism, detail, creativity and kindness that came with he whole experience. These guys are here for you on your day and want to do everything they can to make it perfect. They will not ask you to smile for a thousand hours in horrible poses and listen to every request. On top of that, if you’re relaxed they have lots of amazing ideas - including the first look and sneaking out in the golden light…our top 2 favourite moment of the whole day as a couple.
These guys are worth every penny and would could not recommend them more! Thank you Isaac and Amy.
Wedding Date: January 6, 2017
Wow! Just wow!
We had both photo and cinema.
These guys are amazing. They were very easy to work with and were more than happy to do what we asked them to do. They made us feel comfortable around them and by the end of the night they felt as well known as all the guests at our wedding!
We looked at quite a few other photographers and compared prices to Perspectives. We broke it down to an hourly rate and Perspectives were a far better deal. Not only that but the staff from Perspectives and the service that you get makes its much more valuable for the money spent.
We’re so happy with how things went on our wedding day with the Perspectives team and we don’t even have the photos or video back yet! We are definitely waiting in anticipation and can’t even imagine how awesome the end result will be!
A HUGE thank you to the team that worked on our special day (Isaac, Alex, Jared and Jay) and we definitely could not recommend enough using Perspectives for photography/videography; you will NOT regret it!
Wedding Date: November 26, 2016
Perspectives is amazing! When I first met up with Isaac I warned him that we are both basically incredibly awkward in photos, and good luck to him. Well - we both love our photos and couldn’t be more thrilled! They turned out beautifully and we had such a fun time shooting them! Most importantly - Isaac was totally happy to tailor the package to what we wanted, rather than tell us that we could only have them do it if we signed up to a certain package (which several places did!) I’m so thankful that he done our wedding, as in the end photos are the only thing you have on the other end! Looking at our photos makes me so happy!

We had Isaac shoot our wedding over on Waiheke in April of this year and he was truly awesome! From our first meeting he was professional, friendly and genuinely wanted to capture an amazing day for us. He came up with the ideas and locations around Waiheke, double checked the spots on the morning of the wedding, and we just let him do his thing. If you give them free reign they will take some unbelievable pictures! Yes, a little more pricey than other photographers, but the quality and shots that you get are well worth the little extra. I can’t say we got a bad shot at all, we loved every single photo they took. The style of their photography is so unique it is simply timeless. Beautiful landscape pictures and amazing light and colours. The ease of doing everything online too was excellent, such a great touch. We can’t thank Isaac enough for what he captured, we are truly grateful! Can’t recommend Perspectives enough!!
Wedding Date: April 6, 2016
Isaac and Amber are out of this world amazing. Right from booking, to engagement photos to pre-wedding photos to the big day. They were excited, enthusiastic and committed to capturing the day perfectly. Perspectives absolutely delivered. No hesitation in recommending them to anyone and will use them again for family photos or whatever in the future.
Wedding Date: April 26, 2014
WOW! Words really do escape me when having to review such a wonderful photography company. OUr wedding photos are everything we had dreamed of and more. Isaac was professional, easy going and made our day stress-free. The photos we received of our day and just wonderful and perfectly capture our day. I would highly recommend using Perspectives Photography and Cinema for your wedding. You will be amazed at what they can do!

Initially we weren’t going to hire professional videographers for our wedding in order to stick to our budget. But when I stumbled onto Perspectives’ website and saw their work, there was no turning back! I wasn’t sure how I was going to convince my fiancé to dish out another few thousand of dollars, but after viewing their work, he couldn’t resist either.
Most reviews here seem to be of their photography team, but I can assure you their videography team - Mat and Jared, is equally rad! Mat is pretty famous already for his very romantic proposal (go to the Perspectives website right now if you haven’t seen it!), so let’s talk about Jared instead. When we met up with Jared a week before the wedding to go over things, we were a bit stressed as we still had a lot to organise. But Jared has an amazing vibe and we left feeling excited about our wedding once again as we could feel that he was genuinely excited too. On the day I was quite nervous but when Jared’s big smile definitely had a calming effect from the moment he arrived (at as early as 7:30am despite we suggested 9am because he insisted the longer he’s around for, the more material he can capture). Mat and Jared definitely went above and beyond the call of duty in helping us buy pizza for lunch, transporting stuff, and many other little things that we didn’t anticipate beforehand. They are much fun to be around and we feel very lucky to have them on our wedding day.
We haven’t seen our videos yet but we’re fully confident that we’re going to love their work. In the end, my husband reckons they’re definitely worth every penny! Choice.
Wedding Date: December 21, 2013
We would like to personally thank Amber and Isaac for the fantastic work they did photographing our wedding.
They are lovely to deal with, professional, driven and clearly love what they do for a living. We felt comfortable with them both from the beginning and knew that they were determined to do the best they could for us.
Our plans were all up in the air due to a huge storm that came through on our wedding day and changed all our carefully laid plans. Amber and Isaac kicked into gear and ensured that the new venue was well lit after the last minute change. The conditions on the day were hard with so much rain and mud but they handled it all with no problem. Thanks goodness they take lovely pictures in the rain!
It was fantastic that Amber stayed at the wedding until late into the night as we got some great shots of the guests in party mode which are great to have as we have a complete picture of the day.
We had a huge amount of images, and fell in love with so many of them!
Thanks Amber and Isaac for coping so well with all the different pressures on the day! We love the photos and love that they paint such a lovely picture of our day.
Wedding Date: 12 September 2013
Amber was fantastic on our wedding day, working with ease and expertise. We were delighted with the photos we received and we were very limited due to the weather on the day but that didn’t dampen our spirits and such was the skill of Amber that when we got the photos we were so grateful for the rain and Isaac came to the party, (pun intended) for the last few shots to help out and they were spectacular.
Such was Ambers commitment to give us the best pictures she could after saying goodbye Amber reappeared a little later to capture the sensational shots in the rain.
Thanks heaps Amber & Isaac!
Pete & Nikki Garwood.

Isaac and Amber really went above and beyond for us on our special day. Rather than having their specific ideas about the photos they wanted out of our wedding or a ‘set list’ they put us at ease right from the start and really listened to what our day was about, what it meant to us and what WE wanted, even setting up timelines to ensure they wouldn’t miss anything important. In turn our photos reflect perfectly the emotion and feeling of our day and we couldn’t be happier! These two are so much fun and nothing was a drama throughout the whole process. So easy to communicate with and they ensure you are happy the whole way through. We were on a tight budget, and splashed out for photography knowing it would be the only thing we had at the end, and if we could do it again - we would choose them! So many of our guests commented about the extremes they went to - hiding in bushes, laying on the ground, they just seemed to be everywhere at once capturing everything! We have had so many compliments, and guests from the wedding feel like they are going back there when they see the photos because the emotion is captured exactly how the day was. The other thing that we really liked is they show photos from EVERY wedding on their blog, not just selected photos that they have chosen carefully, and for us this made it really obvious that they were really good at what they do! And more importantly, they absolutely love what they do and this passion shines through in their work. You spend the whole day with your photographers so this is really essential! We are so over the moon, and now have a beautiful set of images to treasure forever, its so hard to put into words how much this has meant to us, we are encouraging everyone we know to head their way - you wont be disappointed!
Wedding Date: April 13, 2013
After we saw Isaac and Ambers work from my cousins wedding we had to have them! my hubby hadn’t even purposed to me yet and i knew i wanted them for my big day lol.
They are so professional and incredibly easy to deal with!
Their work is amazing and they have become a huge hit in our family having done 3 weddings so far.
All i can say is that you will not be disappointed and they are worth every penny!
Thanks again Isaac & Amber X
Wedding Date: February 9, 2013
WOW!!! That sums it up in one word!!
We love the photos, they are so natural yet very professional. Isaac and Amber are so easy to work with and make you feel so comfortable, even in front of the camera (which both me and my husband were a little worried about). I love it how they scout for the most perfect locations with their trained eye, as I wouldn’t have had the first clue .
Definitely highly recommend them. THANKS GUYS XX
Wedding Date: January 27, 2013
Wow- where to begin. I spent several months looking through photographers portfolio’s and the minute I saw perspectives I knew that they were the best of the best. It took us a while to book as the cheaper photographers were a bit tempting, but I can confidently say now with no regrets that there is no compromise for good photographers, including price, these guys were worth every single penny!
Right from our very first email with Isaac & Amber we were made to feel welcome & like they genuinely wanted to work with us. We felt Isaac & Amber put 100% percent into preparing for our wedding by spending some time the day before scoping out different photo opportunities depending on the weather. I will never forget their excitement in telling me about different locations they had found, it was so genuine and made me feel so special and excited amongst being slightly stressed setting up for the big day. On our day Amber & Isaac had such a natural approach to photographing that was not invasive, instead they felt like part of our bridal party adding to the excitement with all their ‘ohh’s’ and ‘ahh’s’ as they captured their beaut pictures.
We could seriously not be any happier with our photo’s, Amber & Isaac you were so accommodating and genuine, your passion and talent for your work shone through every minute you were with us and we were so glad to have you at our special day. The compliments we received about our photo’s have been unreal, someone even thought that they were not real!! real it was, and real they are. Beautiful pictures to treasure forever more. Thanks to the moon and back guys!

I love my husband….but Amber and Isaac at Perspectives Photo + Cinema come a close second!!!
Not only did Amber and Isaac managed to capture all the emotion and fun on our special day in Rarotonga but they did it in such an artistic and beautiful way.
I can honestly say that they added to our wedding that it was a joy to have them there. They spent all day with us and the love for what they do shone through their work.
A highlight of our wedding was the Trash The Dress session we did with them two days after the wedding. It actually became a special day for hubby and I to spend together laughing and talking and sharing it with Amber and Isaac was a real bonus. And the photos from it were AMAZING. They really understand that TTD photography is about capturing beautiful images in non-traditional settings, not just trashing a dress for the sake of it.
The only downside is now I have so many beautiful photos that I have no idea which one to enlarge and hang up. They know how to use lighting in the most flattering way!
You will never regret working with Perspectives and will enjoy your decision for the rest of your lives.
Wedding Date: June 2, 2012
We chose Perspectives Photo + Cinema as I had seen their work & LOVED it! My Husband cannot believe how amazing the photos are and every single photo is just perfect. They were fanatics leading up to the wedding & fabulous on the day, we couldn’t have asked for anything more.
We have had so many friends/work colleagues tell us they are the most amazing wedding photos they have seen.
I couldn’t recommend these guys enough!
Check out the work they did at our wedding at Sarina Park
Thank you Amber & Isaac! You truly made our day magical.
Wedding Date: September 22, 2012
We decided that a beach in Rarotonga would be perfect location for our ideal wedding. We googled photographers in Rarotonga and found Perspectives Photo + Cinema. From that momment on, we were hooked - We never considered any other photographers. Isaac and Amber were awesome to communicate with and all their work looked amazing. When we finally met in Rarotonga just before the wedding, we felt relaxed and confident that we would get exactly what we wanted from the photo’s. They both made us feel at ease and we actually enjoyed having the photo’s taken. Isaac and Amber also included our son Hunter into the shooting, which was a lot of fun. We are thrilled with the photo’s and so many people have been impressed by the quality, even friends of friends letting us know how awesome they are. We would have no hesitation in recommending Perspectives Photo + Cinema to all of our friends and family. Thank you Isaac and Amber for giving us wonderful photo’s to remember our wedding day. Simone & Emrah

Amber & Isaac were a pleasure to work with right from the initial contact. Their professionalism really shone through, they were prepared for any type of weather, and no matter what it was doing, the photos always turned out amazing. They had away of finding the cutest little spots to photograph in, and just seemed to blend into the crowd while still getting the best view, making for really natural looking photos. They were so relaxed, not scared to get their hands dirty (or soaked in our case) and extremely easy to get along with.
We were able to do an engagement shoot with them beforehand, something that i will never regret doing and would encourage others to do also.
Thank you so much for being a huge part of our day!! Can’t wait for another opportunity to work with you again. :D
