With over 18 years experience, let me capture your special day.

With a clean, classic style, I like to focus on  creating timeless imagery that you will love for years to come.  Its about capturing your story for you, your family, your future family. Who doesn’t love pouring over their grandparents wedding photographs – seeing them  as they were, young and in love! The story we tell and the images we create, the album we put together will become an heirloom.

For me, weddings are about telling a story. It’s all the little pieces that add up to show the whole picture of you as a couple. It’s about how you felt on the day and  capturing this very essence through photographs. It’s about all the little details that make you who you are – what is important & meaningful to you.



I offer of range of package options  and payment plans to suit your needs.

You can choose from photographic coverage with high resolution files or go for a package incorporating an album, which will offer you great savings.

How do you work?

When you book us for your wedding you have the choice to have either one or two photographers to cover your day. The principle photographer will gently direct the shoot and make sure everything runs to time. The 2nd photographer will be collecting a complementary set of reportage style images. Our style is  soft and romantic with a mix of classic and contemporary images. Our aim is to make you feel relaxed and comfortable in front of the camera, so that your images look natural. There is an element of direction involved in order to make sure everyone is looking their best.

How long are you there for on the day?

We usually arrive an hour or two prior to the wedding ceremony, depending on the amount of time you have booked us for. Our packages start at 4 hours coverage, but you can add on to this as required.

What about before the wedding?

After you have made your booking we will send through a checklist for you to complete and send back to us,along with a list of hints and tips for ensuring the smooth running of your day. We can arrange most of the details by email and we usually make a time for a final meeting in the week before your wedding. If you are in the Wairarapa and would like to meet up at any other time, then that is not a problem at all.

Do I have to decide on my Package when I book?

We are happy for you to book whichever package you feel comfortable with and you are welcome to upgrade this at any time. If you choose to just book the photographic coverage to start with you are more than welcome to add on an album after your wedding


“Getting the photos back was our favourite part of the experience. We didn’t have any idea how they would look and they blew us away how great they were. There were some little touches that we loved such as getting some great shots of our parents and family that topped it off, just amazing.”

Vanessa & Steve

I cannot thank Sharisse enough for our amazing wedding photography and album. Our album is simply breathtaking and such a perfect keepsake from the day, every page just brings our wedding back to life and our friends and family cannot believe how beautiful it is. The best thing of all though is that beyond the album, we still have an enormous amount of amazing photos, so much so that we are having a hard time deciding on what photos to display! If you are after magnificent wedding photography that truly captures the essence and beauty of your day, you need to have Sharisse! Our friends cannot say enough about our photos and we were truly overwhelmed with the quality and quantity of the photography she provided. Thank you so much Sharisse! We are already planning on having you do our first family portrait when we are over in NZ next after this baby is born in June!

Karlee & Simon

I think you will be pleased to hear that the feedback on the photos is out of this world.  We have been told that they look like a spread for a glossy bridal mag(and the men look like they are posing for GQ)! We have had so many people from the UK & NZ comment about how amazing the scenery is and how you have captured an amazing story with your pics. Our hard part will be choosing what we want!!

Kajal & Wayne

“Just a quick message to let you know that our wedding album arrived safe and sound, and it looks amazing.  I’m so happy with the result, which I always knew would be great, but seeing it brings back the best day of our lives (as corny as that sounds!).  Thank you again for all your work and the wonderful results you have given us.  I’d also like to say how thrilled I am that we chose you for our photographer Sharisse! “

Jamie & Kate

We had Sharisse as our wedding photographer in Masterton in December and she did an amazing job!! We love our photos!

Jade & Craig

“The wedding photography session was great. I was worried about posing for the camera etc and felt pretty nervous about this but Sharisse was awesome, it wasn’t even a thought on the day because she naturally guided us through it

Sophie & Chris

“We had lots of concerns around spending money on photography as weddings are very expensive. However we are glad we invested in great photography. The photography was amazing and we forgot that the photographers were even there because they made us feel so comfortable”

Belinda & Jessie
