"We were so grateful to not only have Brogan capture our special day but for the advice she gave us during the planning process.


Planning a wedding can be so overwhelming but right at the start Brogan said think about what is most important to you and that is what you want to invest your money in. I kept this in my mind through the whole planning process and it really helped me to not get carried away and to stay focused.


Photography was definitely one of those important things on our list. These photos will be something we look back on and enjoy for the rest of our lives and we always knew we wanted Brogan to capture it all for us. We love her photography style and how fun and relaxed she is, it makes having your photo taken and absolute breeze!


We were blown away with our wedding photos and the beautiful album we received from Brogan. We can not recommend her enough and we look forward to her capturing many more special moments for us in the future. Thanks again, Brogan. You’re insanely talented! Xx"

"Brogan from Kiwi Captures Photography was just unreal on our wedding day!


She covered all the details leading up and was so professional. We wouldn't know any other photographer that covers the same level of detail as Brogan.


She's knowledgeable, accommodating and incredibly talented. Her work is simply stunning. We couldn't fault her.


100% would recommend Kiwi Captures to anyone"


- Jess & Matt



"Wow!! Blown away with Kiwi Captures, Brogan is an absolute dream to work with and incredible at her job.


We feel privileged to have had such a great team capture our wedding day, they were super relaxed, flexible and equally professional. We had our wedding photos back within the month and they were outstanding.


Cannot recommend Kiwi Captures enough . Extremely impressed, we were keen on a mixture of shots and especially those candid ones... and they nailed it!


- Brittany & Hayden



"I don't even know where to start on how INCREDIBLE Brogan is.


One of the biggest concerns I think when booking a photographer is are you getting what they are promising? In Brogans case you are getting so, so much more. I can't fault her communication and professionalism, and she is just the nicest person to be around.


For 10 + hours she worked non stop to capture the most breath-taking photos from our day. I have no idea on where to start to pick out just a few to print they are all just so beautiful! And the amazing package that arrives on your doorstep after is just so thoughtful!


If you are on the fence about hiring don't give it another thought, it is a decision you will not regret. We will never be able to thank Brogan enough for the amazing memories she captured for us"


- O'Leah & Mike



"What can we say except, WOW!! Brogan absolutely surpassed any sort of expectations that we had for photographing our wedding.


She made us feel completely at ease and comfortable in front of the camera and she captured our day beautifully. Our wedding day has been and gone but the photographs that Brogan has captured will last a lifetime.


We cannot recommend Kiwi Captures enough! Thank you for capturing our day so beautifully!"


- Summer & Callum


"Brogan is a magician of photography! We got married in October 2019 and I decided Brogan was the photographer for us after looking through her amazing photo gallery. I was really drawn to the artistic flair and moodiness of her work.


We've never had professional photos taken before and were all a bit nervous about being models! Brogan insisted we do the engagement shoot that was included in our package and we're so pleased we did. She was great at directing us and putting us in natural positions that didnt look like we were posing.


We really pushed Brogan and Amy to the limits on our wedding day. We had so much going on including being on top of a mountain in a hurricane, aerobatic display, burnouts, we were pushed for time and my wedding party were all over the place! I couldnt believe my eyes when we got the photos back! Despite the pressure we put them under they delivered the most amazing arty, magazine worthy wedding photos I've ever seen!


Theyve captured the emotion, the small details, the whole story and not one boring photo amongst the 600 on the USB stick. Not only did Brogan deliver amazing photographs, the care and attention that went into putting together the final delivered package was above and beyond! Plus she was way ahead of the date she said she'd have them to us.


I highly recommend hiring Brogan for your special occasion if you want jaw-dropping photos and a fun relaxed photographer who doesnt mind going the extra mile to get that amazing angle."


- Nicole & Chris



"Kiwi Captures were the absolute best photographers to have on our wedding day and we could not have chosen anyone better!


From the one year lead up To the big day Brogan was absolutely amazing and always so helpful!! I always had a great time from our coffee catch ups to plan the day to our fun engagement shoot where she had us climbing cliffs for the best shot!


Brogan was so fun to have around and made you feel so comfortable and like magazine models haha! On the wedding day both photographers were absolutely the best especially dealing with our crazy bridal party and our photos turned out way better than ever expected!!


We could not recommend Kiwi Captures enough they truely are so talented and amazing!!"


- Shawnee & Mat


"Brogan did our wedding in Alexandra in March. The professionalism and skill level was amazing, but also the natural ability to become your friend throughout the experience. We really felt at ease with Brogan behind the camera, and it showed.


I cannot recommend Kiwi Captures enough; not only were the photos themselves of high quality, but the physical package from the album right down to the USB stick was presented with care.


Brogan I really hope we can think of an excuse to hire you again in the near future :)"

- Kieran & Zoe



"Brogan captured the raw emotion in our eyes, the natural moments of pure bliss, the tears, hugs, laughs plus all the magic in between.


We have no idea how we are going to chose our photos for the album! We thank you once again for your amazing artistry, you are one talented lady!


It was such a pleasure to have you a part of our special day and you made it all seem effortless and where so easy to deal with and got our photos to us so quickly"


- Rachael & Phil



"We recently used Kiwi Captures for our wedding photographers and where do I even start!


Both Brogan and Amy were so amazing, making us both feel really comfortable and confident for choosing them. When researching photographers for the big day, from the moment I found Kiwi Captures I instantly loved their style and was so excited to book them to capture our day. Our day was captured beautifully from start to finish with Brogan and Amy both being really fun and easy going to have around on the day.


Their service has been nothing but top notch from day one, with Brogan always promptly replying to my many messages and we would highly recommend them to anybody looking for a photographer. Love your work & we are so thrilled with all of our photos!

Thanks so much again"


- Claire & Kerrod



"How can we even begin to explain how amazing Brogan has been over our wedding experience.


Before we booked Brogan as our photographer we were anxious about feeling awkward getting our photos taken and not knowing what to do with a camera in our face. After falling in love with Kiwi captures on Instagram we decided to book her in for our wedding photographer.

Straight away Brogan made us feel comfortable and at ease. She was always friendly in her emails and responded straight away and answered any questions we had no matter how silly they were. Brogan is situated in Invercargill however was more than happy to travel for our wedding in Wanaka.

We first met Brogan with our engagement photo shoot that came with our package this was the best option as we were able to get to know her and see how she works. We instantly felt at ease and as if we had known Brogan forever, she was friendly and professional. She went through all elements to get photos on the beach with us and they came out better then we could ever expect.

On our wedding day Brogan and Amy were on time and ready to get photographing. It was surprising how much you don’t notice the camera there and to see what amazing photos can be captured in real time. Not once did Brogan make us fake it or pose and instead let us be natural and comfortable which can be seen in the photos we received.

Brogan was calm and professional on the wedding day which made for a smooth easy day with no need for a bridezilla moment. Brogan was very fast at getting us photos after the wedding and we really couldn’t ask for anyone better. The photos are beautiful quality and have turned out more than perfect for us to share our memories forever.

We honestly could not recommend Brogan enough as a Wedding photographer."

- Nikita & William



"Brogan was our wedding photographer and she is absolutely amazing!

She made us all so comfortable and made something we thought would be so stressful fun.

We received some photos so quickly after and we love every single one of them and will treasure them forever.


Can't thank you enough Brogan"


- Katie & Nathan



"Wow! We are absolutely blown away and will be forever grateful that Amy and yourself have captured our big day so beautifully. The presentation of our album and media copies are incredible.

We could not have put our album together the way you have creating a wee story and we love it!

So special to have all these treasured memories to share with our family and friends forever.

Thank you for being apart of our journey and sharing our big day with us

Lots of love and thanks"

- Adam, Kylie and Quinn Turnbull

"We could not be happier with our wedding pics. They are all so amazing and you have managed to capture the whole day and story. You guys were so chilled and relaxed and made us so comfortable and at ease.

Just when we thought things couldn't get better with our pictures... We get our parcel of our album and pictures... wow just wow.. You truly are the most amazing photographer.

The extra touches you put in are so so special.

Thank you x"

- Sheena & Erin



"Hey Brogan,

I’ve wanted to contact you so much over the last few weeks but I remembered you had said it’ll be about 4 weeks so I waited and yesterday, after a hectic day at work, I arrived home to find an unexpected package.


 I do not have the words to fully convey the gratitude and awe we felt upon receiving the package and then opening the individual parcels. I love the way you packaged your work, I love the way it’s presented, I absolutely love the flash drive and box and I don’t know where to start with the album...you perfectly captured every emotion, every detail.


 You told a story, our story, in precious moments forever immortalised in your photographs. I sometimes struggle with memory loss and I was just saying the other day that my wedding already felt like a distant memory but now I can look at your album and relive all the smiles, stolen glances, laughs, love and mishaps that made my dreams come true. And I have you both to thank for that.


 I can tell that Photography isn’t just a job to you - your passion and talent shines through the photos. So many people have commented on how beautiful and unusual (I think they’re used to formal, posed photos) the photos are and I proudly show it to anyone and everyone that comes through the rest home and hospital where I work.


 Any bride (and groom) would be lucky to have you do their photos.

 So THANK YOU! From the bottom of my heart. Xx

Justin also said that was the best day of his life and that he’s never felt so proud before. Thank you, thank you, thank you xx."

With love,


- Marissa and Justin Pont (& Tuari)



"Brogan, I've just been to collect the wedding album from the courier and it's absolutely fantastic, we're so thrilled with it.

The photos look amazing and you truly captured the happiness of our special day so well. Thanks from the bottom of our hearts,

I will definitely be recommending you to everyone I know! "

- Tracy & Brendan


"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.

Brogan fit right into the setting and was awesome, fun, friendly, kind and flexible. She completely understood what we were after. 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"


- Jacqui & Brendan


"There isn't anyone out there in the country like Brogan at Kiwi Captures.

Choosing her was easy and everything that followed to the day my photos arrived (way ahead of the expected time frame) was just as easy!


Her style is creative and stunning and so so personal. Her talent is unreal. We were so glad to have her at our day she was honestly like one of our friends and she did not disappoint when those photos arrived they were outstanding! She manages to capture everything we hoped for and more.


Finding a photographer that's as professional and produces this kind of quality is not usually this affordable either, yet another amazing surprise. If you're looking for legit personal photos that aren't your stock standard up posed shots everyone else has then Kiwi Captures is definitely the way to go.


I now need to plan something else exciting for an excuse to get her back again! Xxx"


- Matt & Kim



"When I planned our trip to New Zealand (we are from Australia), I knew I would love to have Brogan as our wedding photographer.

I have been following for quite sometime and I just love her photos. She was so easy and relaxed to communicate with and helped us so much to organise everything as we are not local and i was a bit nervous but she did such an amazing job with everything.

Then when we met Brogan on the day it was just perfect, she made us feel super relaxed and comfortable and we absolutely adore and love our photos!!! Thank you so much Brogan for taking such good care of us and to deliver something that means the world to us!!! Everyone who wants to book a great and fun photographer then you definitely need to check her out!! I can’t recommend Brogan enough, thank you from the bottom of our hearts 💖!!"

"Brogan and Amy were the best wedding photographers we could have ever asked for. Their professionalism and lovely personalities made the photography comfortable and fun! We only had 2 months to plan our wedding and were worried about not finding a photographer in such short notice but Brogan was readily available, which took a huge weight off our shoulders.


She was amazing with her communication and fast replies, allowing us to keep the ball rolling as our special day approached rapidly. While Brogan and Amy took our photos, they consistently ensured that we were relaxed and being natural. Often we would receive kind words from them as they complimented us throughout the day. The weather played up a bit on both our engagement and wedding shoot but that didn't hinder the photography at all and they made the absolute most of it to produce amazing photos.


If you are unsure about hiring Kiwi Captures to photograph your wedding, rest assured that you are going to receive high quality, professional photos delivered by exceptional photographers who give 110% on everything. You will never be disappointed!

Thanks again Brogan and Amy, couldn't be happier!"
