Libby loves to capture honest, authentic, and unscripted love stories for couples all around New Zealand. Together, you’ll do things a bit differently. This is about you; this is about telling your story.

North Canterbury-based Libby’s philosophy is about documenting the real, raw, and authentic love — like when you first see your partner waiting for you at the end of the aisle; when your dad gets choked up giving his reception speech; when your new spouse grabs your hand under the table when no-one’s looking. Photos are meant to freeze time for just a moment, allowing you to truly remember what it felt like to be there.

Tell us about your business? We can’t describe what a typical session with us looks like, because they vary so much from couple to couple. What we can tell you though, is that we’re here to help capture the story that is uniquely yours. Whether that’s a cozy in-home session, an intimate mountaintop elopement, a grand affair, or anything in between, we’ll be there to document it. Tell us your vision — let’s dream up your story.

What’s your mission for every couple who chooses your business? For clients to feel heard and valued, our relationship doesn’t start on the wedding day, we are in constant communication throughout your planning process. From a ‘Welcome to the Libby Ellmers Photography Family’ gift to face-to-face timeline planning sessions. 

To remove fear and stress so you can enjoy your day, not only am I your photographer but your time keeper, dress fluffer, hair fixer, problem solver and I LOVE every minute of it! And ultimately for you to have beautiful memories of your big day by capturing the essence of your day naturally and candidly just as it happened! 

Bonus tip about your business? If you mention North Canterbury Weddings when booking your package you’ll receive a complimentary engagement session! One of the biggest benefits of doing an engagement session is that it will help you get used to being in front of the camera before your wedding day.

Remembering back what you did at your engagement session will help make your portrait time more efficient on the big day and allow you to get even more photos you want during that time. Practice makes perfect!

‘The gut-busting laughs, the moments where time stands still. Let’s capture the real stuff.’
