When it comes to weddings we are on a mission.

1). To make you relive your day in a way you didn’t see it before.
2). To bring your parents to tears.
3). To make you the envy of your friends.
4). To make sure your Grandchildren know you were once hot, sexy and in love.
5). To push the envelope make you say OMG that’s freaking amazing

Does our mission sound like it would work for your big day?


At Tandem Photography our signature collections with two photographers working in Tandem start at $4500, with your collection including beautifully edited high-resolution digital files. Or for those of you who are thinking you don’t really need two photographers at your wedding, we have solo photographer coverage available from one of our multi award winning Masters of Photography starting at only $3500.

Please, just ask and we’d be happy to tell you about everything that’s included in our collections.

We treasure the tangible, we hope one day you’d be cuddled on the couch with your children telling them stories of the day you married. If this sounds like what you would love you’d want one of our albums too.

Wedding Albums start at $2250. Save on your total investment by pre-purchasing one of our complete album collections.

We accept a full range of payment options including bank deposit, credit card, Q card, Farmers card, eftpos, cash and cheque.

With payment plans available you can also spread the cost of your photography investment with payments as low as $35 per week*
* (subject to approval, terms and conditions apply)

Our wedding registry service is also available so your guests may opt to contribute towards the highly meaningful gift of wedding photography and/or your wedding album.


Can we meet to decide if you're right for us?

Of course! We’d love to connect with you, take you through more of our work and you can make sure we’re the right fit for your wedding day! You can book a no obligation consultation with us in our studio, or if you further afield than Christchurch many of our clients enjoy meeting us through Skype.

Can we pencil book our wedding date in?

Sure you can, but due to the high number of enquiries we can only pencil in for 24 hours.

Who will be our photographers on the day?

Neil and Katherine are both lead photographers, heading a team each. Our second photographers are chosen from a short list of highly skilled photographers whom we are used to working with (not applicable for solo photographer bookings).

Do you travel outside of Christchurch?

We love to travel, please get in touch and we can give you the rates wherever in the world your wedding will be. We make all of our own travel arrangements so you don’t have to worry about a thing!

Are you an NZIPP qualified photographer?

Hiring a qualified member of NZIPP (New Zealand Institute of Professional Photography) is the best investment you can make in ensuring you will get what you want out of your wedding day photography. Qualified members of the NZIPP have passed a stringent qualification process, and are committed to professional excellence and ethical conduct, so you can have utmost confidence in their creative ability and business practices.

What happens if we change the date?

We check our availability for the new date and if available we transfer your booking and it’s yours. If the date is already booked you may opt to reconsider your date or cancel your booking with us. Please note that we are unable to refund cancelled bookings.

What happens prior to our wedding day?

Most of our clients opt for a forever session – a fantastic lifestyle portrait session to celebrate their engagement, then following this you’d enjoy a design consultation where we’d work together with you to create Artwork celebrating this special time. As we draw closer to the wedding we would chat to you, usually via phone to work through some of the finer details of the day from which we will create a written plan so you can relax knowing your day will run smoothly from a photographic perspective.

What provisions do you make for bad weather?

Rain is undeniably magic and can result in amazing photos even though they may not be the ones you had anticipated! After photographing over 500 weddings we’ve been in all sorts of weather and situation, we’re adaptable and will come up with solutions to assure awesome photos. Also to make your life easier we even come armed with an armful of large umbrellas.

What do you do to protect our images?

It makes us sick to the stomach too to think of the loss of any of your photos prior to you even seeing them. Which is why we they are saved onto multiple computer drives in multiple locations.

Do you carry back up equipment?

Absolutely! We see this as an essential as equipment failure is something that can happen. So we come armed with dual slot cameras, back up cameras and support equipment to every wedding.

A dual slot camera takes two memory cards at the same time and allows the photographer to set the camera to send your photos to both cards, providing automatic back up which helps protect your photos from memory card corruption that is why we operate using predominantly dual slot cameras.

Peace of mind is a great thing!

Do I need to give you a shot list?

If you’ve made a booking with us it’s probably because you love what we do and enjoy the connection we’ve had with you (we hope!). Once you’ve booked you’ll have a good idea of what we deliver with our wedding photography collections. We are very thorough and experienced and shoot a comprehensive coverage. We feel our creative photography is at it’s very best when it is truly ours and we’re not a fan of referring to shot lists. However a list of family shots is important and if you have anything special and out of the ordinary happening please do let us know.

What will the photographers wear on the day?

We’re professionals who like to fit in with you and your wedding day so you’ll hardly notice we’re there!

How long will we be away from our guests?

And the end of the day it’s your wedding day so you’re the boss! Typically the timing of the day ideally allows a little time after the ceremony for hugs and mingling with guests, then about half an hour for family photos before you head away for up to 2 hours for bridal party photos. If you’d prefer to not be away from your guests so long we will work in with your requirements.

Do you showcase any photos straight away?

We LOVE to share a teaser with you within a couple of days of the wedding head on over to our Facebook page and our Instagram page and you can find past teasers we’ve posted.

How long will it take to get our photos back?

A great deal of care with each and every photo that leaves the Tandem Photography studio and we want your photos to be the best they can be at our busiest time of year this may take up to 8 weeks. We’ll make sure they will be well worth the wait!

How long will it take to get our wedding album?

When you come for your cinematic slideshow viewing at our studio we will already have two gorgeous album designs ready so we can get straight to work on creating your family heirloom. We take you through the process and you leave our studio with a confirmed album design (allow up to 2 hours for this consultation). Final art work usually takes our team 4-6 weeks, at which time you’ll be asked to approve the last proof before production. Then our album makers Queensberry take over and work their magic with printing and binding your album.

For international and out of town clients the album design process is just as easy for you we just speak and screen share with you via Skype.

You would usually be collecting your finished wedding album 14-20 weeks after your wedding day.

For albums that require courier or shipping additional delivery charges will apply. Customs charges may apply for international delivery.

Can we make a booking?

Yay! We can’t wait to share your big day! Connect with us and we’ll send through the booking paperwork where you’ll need to select your package.
