Wedding Filmaking - Wedding Videography

The below weddings are weddings I have filmed, and associates have filmed. When it is me or an associate I have made it clear whose work it is but increasingly I am only shooting Wedding Videos and Wedding Films myself - I am not using videography associates anymore.

It fills me with great excitement to announce that I am taking wedding filmaking bookings with ME on video, and with a wedding associate on photography. I have shot my first wedding films this season (exciting as!), and since I am newer to this you are able to get me shooting your wedding film at a temporarily reduced cost. Any questions for this Hawkes Bay Videographer, please get in contact x

Monessa and Carl Wedding Film


Monessa and Carl’s small, intimate, family affair was a sweet, lovely day and my absolute pleasure to document on film. Video really, but you get the gist. I’d like to thank Kasia for having me along, much appreciated my friend! As a former Aucklander and now Hawke's Bay Videographer I will always have a soft spot in my heart for Auckland, and this day was simply stunning up there, save for a few drops here and there x

Michaela and Mack Wedding Film


This was a wedding film I really wanted to nail. It’s my first season as a Hawke’s Bay wedding videographer and having met these two knew it was going to be a lovely wedding. Animal lovers, recovering from the cyclone after being badly damaged and losing so much, lovely people, and willing to take a chance on me. So thanks Michaela and Mack. I hope you like what I made you x









James and Adelaide Wedding Film


James and Addie are a couple I will always be eternally grateful for because they took a chance on me to have them for their beautiful, sweet, funny, whimsical, smile filled, rain filled, laughter filled wedding for the first time as a paid Hawke's Bay Wedding Videographer. I hope I do you proud, you lovely sweet golden people. Special shout out to Coralee for shooting photo for me.

From their eternal jokes all day at the old Church and at their house to soldiering on at Pakowhai Country Park in Heavy Rain and keeping it positive, light, fun and memorable, this was a really fun day for me.

Ropati and Sarah Wedding Film

wedding vidography & editing by Michael

Ropati and Sarah @xsezzax were Married at Markovina in Auckland, and it was lovely to be there capturing their day as a wedding filmaker. It was a real family wedding, surrounded by their nearest and dearest and as you will see, it was a very emotional yet happy day for our lovely couple. I chose a lovely 80s tune because I loved the romantic feel of the song, and how it was a song about service in love of someone else and connectedness. Thanks heaps to @samanthadonaldsonphotography for having me along, and of course to my lovely sweet bride and groom.

Sydnee and Josh Wedding Film

FILMED BY Associate robin

Wedding Videography, Crab Farm Winery, Whirinaki Beach, Hawkes Bay

Sydnee and Josh's Crab Farm Winery Wedding in such brilliant sunshine was such a treat, after a relatively wet and stormy summer for most weddings. I was on Photography and Robin on Hawke's Bay Videographer duties, it felt like a real dream team x

Christle and Nathan Wedding Film

FILMED BY ASSOCIATE ROBIN, second shooter tiago

Wedding Videography, Cape Esate and Haumoana Wedding, Hawke's Bay, New Zealand

The wedding was shot by my associate Photographer Nita on Photo, and Robin and Tiago on Hawke's Bay Videographer duties and they did such an amazing job in very trying conditions. It was such an elegant, colourfully decorated wedding and it was in direct contrast and you might say defiance of a very wet, grey lead up with a bit of a mudfest happening. However the clouds parted and we got some amazing photos and wedding videography happening, and for that I am very proud and grateful x

Imogen and Geoff Wedding Film

FILmed by associate robin

Wedding Videography, Private House and Waimarama Beach, Hawke's Bay, New Zealand

With associate Natalie on photography, and Robin on Hawke's Bay Videographer duties, this was a team effort. These two are Waimarama natives, living on the hills looking down to this majestic, golden, vast, beautiful beach. You can see a lot of love in this wedding video, and isn't that what it's all about at the end of the day?


Here you'll find my very own family films. More wedding films are coming very soon so please stay tuned!

Michaela and Mack, Engagement Session, Waimarama Beach


Michaela and Mack's Engagement Session at Waimarama Beach, Hastings, Hawke's Bay, New Zealand was such a fun, easy way to spend a spring evening. And what a lovely evening it was. Their wedding is fast approaching and I am so very excited to be part of it.

Kelsey and Dane, Family Session, Ocean Beach


Kelsey @kelsey_cleaver_ and Dane @dane_cleaver are old wedding clients and very kindly agreed to be my guinea pigs for this video family shoot on a very windy, blustery but strangely mind winter’s day. It was so lovely to see these two again and I am so proud of Dane for becoming a @blackcapsnz squaddie. I am merely taking my first steps as a videographer but have shot a wedding and about to shoot another, so stay tunes and if you want to take a punt on me as your wedding videographer, get me while I’m cheap x


Chlöe Portrait Session Film


Chlöe and I took a little trip to the beach at Waipatiki to shoot some test footage for me to keep us on our toes. There was not a cloud to be seen all day, so we were lucky that we got a misty ombre sunset with the pinks, purples, blues and other hues that a Hawkes Bay Videographer likes to have lighting up the sky over the falling waves on this stunning beach. New Zealand Videographers would kill to have these beaches on their doorstep, its true x

Eva Portrait Session Film


Eva @evaography is a local actress and I am a local videographer so we made a little vignette about how Eva loves music. Thanks @makayla_beer_aka for the hair and makeup and for the amazing artists for their music.

Raveena Portrait Session Film


Went on a portrait film shoot with Raveena and it was lovely. As a Hawke's Bay Videographer I am so happy it's spring again so these sorts of shoots can happen more and more.

Norrie Portrait Session - Ocean Beach, Hawkes Bay


Just a little bit of test footage, experience gathering and learning with @norrie_xo at my first equal Beach of all time, Ocean Beach. It is now tied with Waipatiki Beach for favourite and Kairakau Beach is rising throught the ranks. It was a lil bit chilly and Norrie found the water freezing but I didn’t as much. But as a Hawke's Bay Videographer I keep getting drawn to these beautiful beaches when all but deserted and it feels like the ends of the earth.

Boy at Ocean Beach


This is test footage from Ocean Beach that show's the look my videography is taking. This was a particularly dark and stormy day so I went with it and used music and imagery to reflect that. Featuring my eldest son.

“At best, it's a happy delusion—these two people who truly love each other and have no idea how truly miserable they're about to make each other. But, but, when two people know that, and they decide with eyes wide open to face each other and get married anyway, then I don't think it's conservative or delusional. I think it's radical and courageous and very romantic.”
