“My mission is to use my friendly & quirky personality, my knowledge of Queenstown’s most beautiful locations and my unorthodox photographic style to help adventurous couples who love the outdoors capture their wedding day with images that are simple, natural and beautiful. And to have fun doing it!”
Hello! I’m Patrick Fallon of Fallon Photography. I am a full-time photographer living in the beautiful alpine resort of Queenstown, in New Zealand’s South Island.
I’ve been shooting professionally since 2002 and I have worked everywhere from Bluff to Quebec. (I still can’t believe I get to do what I love for a job!)
As owner/director, photographer and chief bottle-washer here at Fallon Photography I am dedicated to providing photography services that go above and beyond my client’s expectations. When you book with us you are booking the photographer who’s work you see on these pages. (I.e. me!).
I love variety and thrive on new challenges so I’m keen to shoot anything and everything. No job is too big, too small or too weird. (Although I’m sure one day I will come to regret that last bit). However, if I had to pin myself down I would say that first and foremost I am a wedding photographer but I also love (and do quite a lot of) commercial and action sports photography.
My passion for mountain biking is how I got into photography in the first place and this sports photography background has had a big influence on my style of shooting. I like to keep things as natural and relaxed as possible, even on big budget shoots. Magic happens everywhere, every day – if you let it.
I believe that great photography can and should be simple, natural and beautiful and that is what I strive for in my work.
Last but not least here are a few words – in no particular order – that I think sum me up pretty well;
I am…tall and bald (easy to spot in a crowd), friendly, always hungry, well traveled, imaginative, the current (disputed) 2011 Arthur’s Point Scrabble Champion, lucky to have found the love of my life with whom I share an amazing daughter, last but not least, grateful for my wonderful family and friends.
