Relaxed, Natural & Fun Queenstown Wedding Photography

I am “that bald Queenstown wedding photographer ” who will happily wade up to his chest in an ice-cold lake, climb a tree for an epic wedding party photo, or commando crawl through tussock and spiky matagauri for the perfect shot.

Action Jackson

Shooting action sports like skiing and mountain biking is how I got into professional photography back in the day. And it’s still a big influence in how I shoot weddings today, as an Action Sports Photographer, I always felt that the best shots were often uncomfortable, dirty or even slightly risky for the photographer. I reckon the same is true of Wedding Photography.

On the wedding day itself, I like to let things happen as naturally as possible and I’m pretty good at dealing with the unexpected. (And even the smallest, most relaxed of weddings usually delivers a fair amount of “unexpected”).

Good Things Happen to Happy People

I also put a huge amount of my energy into making sure that my couples, their bridal party and wedding guests are comfortable, relaxed and happy on the wedding day.

So, I’m also that guy who will give his jacket to the bride to keep her warm in between photos. Or have some handy heel-stoppers in his camera bag just in case. I might even whip a fully stacked picnic hamper out when the wedding party starts getting hangry.

After all, if the bride & groom are roasting hot and sunburned, or starving hungry and parched with thirst or just not comfortable with their photographer, then chances are their wedding photos aren’t going to be as relaxed, natural and beautiful as they could be.

I feel that great wedding photography can and should be relaxed, natural and fun. And that’s what I strive to bring to every wedding I photograph, big or small.

Local Knowledge

Other than that, let me see…what else is there to say? I’ve been working as a Queenstown Wedding Photographer since 2002 and I’ve been a Queenstown local since 1996. I also worked in the Queenstown film industry as a location scout (amongst other things) for many years. So I know all Queenstown’s best (and least-known) locations and the best time to visit them for epic light.

If you'd like to know how I can help you capture your wedding day with photos that are relaxed, natural and beautiful, give me a bell.  I'd love to hear from you.  If you need more inspiration for your special day, then check out The Queenstown Wedding Blog for a directory of Queenstown Wedding Venues & Vendors and ideas and inspiration on Queenstown Wedding Planning.

Good luck with the wedding planning.  If I can help in any way, I'd love to hear from you.

Patrick is a legend. I arranged our wedding as a surprise for my long term fiance so I was out of my depth - I immediately clicked with Patrick and he made the experience really fun, easy and was so helpful putting me at ease leading up to the wedding. On the wedding day we both felt so comfortable with him - it was like being with an old friend though we met him that day. He is relentless and goes the extra mile to make sure he gets all the best shots without any stress and the results have left us and those close to us so, so happy. Legend.read more
