Wellington wedding photographer

Q & A Wedding Photography

There is lot to consider when looking for a photographer. I’ve put together some of my most frequent questions. Hopefully this will help with the process.

Where are you based and do you travel?

I'm currently located in Wellington but you'll often see me hanging out in Taranaki and other parts of NZ. If you're getting married out of Wellington, no problem, I can travel to you.

What types of packages do you have to offer?

I have three different packages for you to choose from. These range from half day to full day coverage. I understand that not everyone wants the full deal, so I can create a custom package for you if you are having an intimate wedding and only want limited coverage.


What is the price of your photography?

My most popular wedding package starts at $3200 NZD. I understand budget is something you will need to consider when it comes planning your wedding. One thing to keep in mind is your wedding photos will last forever and the investment will be well worth it.

To request a full list of pricing, please get in touch with more details about your needs.

Can we meet before we make a decision?

Absolutely! I love hearing ideas and getting to know couples. It would be great to meet with you in person or over skype. Coffee or wine, you pick?

Do you use a second shooter?

Yes! Most of my packages I will have a second photographer with me. It’s a big day for everyone and I want to make sure we make the most of out the opportunities for photos. There is no extra cost for this.

How long does it take to receive my images?

I aim for 4-6 weeks. It can be a lengthy process culling and then editing all of the images for you, good things can take time and I pride myself in producing the best results.

How many images will I receive?

This depends on the type of package you go for. It can range from 600 - 1000 different files.


How will I receive the images?

I will first deliver these to you in an online gallery. The gallery will be yours to share with friends and family so they too can enjoy the photos. I’ll also send you a USB stick which will contain high resolution files which are great for printing.

What happens if it rains?

They say this is good luck! Nothing to worry about, lets talk about a plan B.

What is required to make a booking?

I have a booking agreement and a deposit which secures your date.


Who owns copyright of the photographs?

Copyright remains the property of Jaymee Photography, you will have permission to use the images for non-commercial purposes, including printing and sharing as many as you would like with friends and family.

Engagement Shoot at the Botanical Gardens - Anita and Leon

Congrats to Anita and Leon who won my engagement shoot giveaway a couple of weeks back! I love meeting couples and hearing about their wedding plans. It's an exciting time and there's no better way to kick of the celebrations with some new photos together.

We met at the Wellington Botanical Gardens and explored a different area to where I usually meet couples at this location. I loved the cactus and succulent garden!


D.I.Y Rustic Bohemian Wedding - Kristen and Glenn

Back in January I photographed this gorgeous wedding and I have been patiently waiting for the right moment to share it with you all.

Kristen and Glenn met in high school and started dating at 17 years old! They decided to get married in Wairarapa at Tarureka Estate.

Their inspiration was rustic, bohemian and D.I.Y, I loved this aspect of the day.  Kristen put so much thought and creativity into her wedding, it felt special to document the efforts she had gone through. The bouquets, cake, reception decor (including the beautiful dream catchers), hair and makeup was all done by the wonderful bride herself. 

I loved the vibe of this wedding. The whole day felt relaxed and fun. We had a bridal shoot before the ceremony, this was all about the bridal party hanging out and having a good time in a beautiful forest setting.

Outdoor Wedding at Aston Norwood Gardens - Roy and Bilyana

I love the change of seasons from Summer to Autumn. The trees change colour and the light gets softer sooner in the day. The perfect backdrop for a wedding. 

Roy and Bilyana got married underneath the trees at Aston Norwood Gardens in Upper Hutt. I came along to photograph the ceremony and to help my friend Signy out with the photography as she was also a part of the bridal party. The grounds were so beautiful and the light was just stunning. I loved being a part of their wedding day!
