What exactly is an elopement?
An elopement is an intentionally small gathering with the ones you love (or just yourselves). A wedding day that is centred around the two of you, committing yourselves to one another in a way that is meaningful and authentically you, without the performance of a big wedding day.
It is about creating a space where you can say your vows to each other, cry, laugh and spend the day soaking up all of the beautiful things that make you the perfect match for each other.
It can be a day of saying your vows at sunrise or sunset, getting a helicopter up a mountain or hiking into a beautiful waterfall. It can be camping with 15 of your best friends and celebrating around the campfire – anything you dream up!

"BROGAN FIT RIGHT INTO THE SETTING AND WAS AWESOME, FUN, FRIENDLY, KIND AND FLEXIBLE. SHE COMPLETELY UNDERSTOOD WHAT WE WERE AFTER.
Brogan was the photographer we chose for our helicopter elopement in Fiordland. An elopement is super intimate and when having a wedding with such few people around, every single person is memorable.
The couple of days we had with her (cause our wedding day wasn't the mountain wedding we hoped for, and we got to fly the next day too) was awesome.
She had us completely at ease and even took away the stress of coordinating with Fiordland Helicopters (who are also great) for us when the weather was looking dicey for our wedding day. The turnaround time was great and our photos and the album she put together for us were fantastic, of great quality and truly captured our day and what we were all about"

Frequently Asked Questions
Where are you located? Do you travel?I am currently based in Invercargill, New Zealand! I absolutley travel, anywhere and everywhere. If you are looking into a destination wedding I have both an NZ & European passport making travel to Europe that much easier.
How many images will I receive?For a full wedding day I deliver at least 400 images. Often many more than this but I don’t like to put an exact figure on it. Every wedding is different and varies from the last. We prefer quality over quantity!
How long do I need to wait for my photos?You will be sent some sneak peeks within 48 hours. There is a 6 week turn around for full gallery and album delivery after your wedding.
Do you have payment options?To secure your date a $500 deposit is required. The full amount is due 2 weeks before your wedding. This can either be paid off on a payment plan or lump sum. Bank Transfer/Credit Card and Pay Pal are all accepted.
I want to book a helicopter for photos - can you help with that?Of course! Depending on where your wedding is I can recommend some awesome companies to use and locations to fly to within your budget.
