Testimonials + Feedback // Weddings & Elopements

"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"

- Sarah & Cam

"We cannot talk highly enough of Brogan and her team. We were married in Queenstown over the weekend and we are so glad we used Kiwi Captures.

Neither of us particular enjoy being photographed but she helped us relax and had a great personality to do what she does.

We received a huge amount of sneak peak images two days after the wedding and they have turned out even better than we could have imagined. They are perfect lifelong reminders of our special day.

We cannot wait to see the rest.

Thanks Brogan and Alicia for everything on our special day. We would recommend you to anyone looking for a photographer in the Southland or Queenstown lakes area.


- Donna & Jeremy

"Brogan is/was absolutely amazing! with the speed in which we got our photos back but also with how well she captured both of our wedding days plus our engagement shoot!

We both are in love with all of our photos. Brogan fitted in so well with our guests and bridal party team! we will 100% be booking with her again in the future and also recommending her to anyone needing photos done!"

- Caitlin & Camden

"We had Brogan and Anna on our wedding day, and I can absolutely not rave enough about them! They were unreal! They captured the most beautiful photos that we will treasure forever.

These two are so thoughtful and want to know everything that is special to you and your partner and capture every moment that truly means something. Some of the photos she took were so meaningful to me that I cried!

Thank you so much for the most beautiful memories that have been photographed. Could not recommend these two enough"

- Margot & Brandon

"Absolutely incredible experience with Brogan, Kiwi Captures Photography.

Started off with a quick response when we emailed for availability. And to our luck she was available. Brogan guided us through all the different packages we could go with and was so helpful with all the questions we had.

Brogan gave us ideas and recommendations and helped us to choose the incredible locations for our first look/pre ceremony bridal photos.

We even got to have an engagement shoot which was apart of the package deal before the wedding and this was amazing !! Again Brogan helped us with picking a location and made us feel so so comfortable and confident together in front of the camera. Brogan hands down is the absolute hype girl you need as your photographer!! She makes you feel like a super model!

She Captures all the special moments on the day so beautifully. Those most magical photos I've ever seen!

Communication was 10/10

Help and guidance 10/10

Fun professional caring personality.

So incredibly talented.

We had so much fun getting photos taken and her eye for detail was exactly what we wanted. We have the most amazing photos of our wedding day she captured it beautifully. The album she put together is wonderfully set out and will be treasured forever.

Do not hesitate to book Brogan for your wedding photos it is the best decision we made. Brogan we can't thank you enough for capturing our day perfectly."

- Kara and Gordie

"Oh my god. Brogan is the living, breathing definitive of phenomenal. She is more than just your photographer. When I tell you she goes above and beyond, you have no idea what extent she will go to. And not just to get the shot but to make you feel like amazing.

We would pick Brogan a million times over. She is so unbelievably fun to have around to capture your memories. Words cannot express how stoked we are to have had Brogan be part of our special day"

- Katie & Arun

"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

"Brogan and Amy from Kiwi Captures are professional, friendly, approachable and have excellent attention to detail. We had looked into a few photographers but loved how Brogan made the booking process so easy and always communicated with us all the way.

We were worried as we had to postpone our wedding and reschedule several times due to Covid-19 but Brogan was so lovely to deal with and made sure we could find a new date with ease.

Brogan and Amy captured our beautiful wedding and we are so happy with the photos :-) Would recommend Kiwi Captures to anyone planning their wedding!! AA++++ 5 stars!!"

- Lauren & Jeremy

"We used Brogan for our wedding last year, I can’t recommend her enough, we absolutely love our wedding photos! Not only is she amazing at what she does we had so many compliments about how great and chilled she was on the day, how it didn’t feel like we had a photographer she fitted in so well and made you feel comfortable!"

- Kimberley & Morgan

"Brogan is incredible at what she does! Everyone needs to have a Brogan in their life!

I tell everyone and anyone that will listen to me about our wedding photographer! From the first email I sent until the special 'post wedding' package that arrived on my doorstep with our wedding album and 'extras'. We were so impressed to have our photos back so quickly and they were incredible.

Her professionalism was faultless and her communication was even better. We are so thankful that we chose Brogan to capture our day. She really is amazing and everyone should book her for their own special moments to be captured! Brogan had thought of everything and was so helpful when I was unsure.

As part of our package we got an engagement shoot. These too are photos we will treasure forever because she got so many special moments with our little girl. We love looking through our wedding album and seeing different photos each time, she really did capture our day beautifully including all the little details. Her easy going nature put me at ease on my wedding day when she reminded me that it was about us and there was no time restraints, just go with it!

Thank you so much for your hard work Brogan, working with you was simply the best decision we had made and we will treasure our photos forever!

1000% recommend Kiwi Captures!!"

- Tegan & Luke

"Our expereince with Brogan was brilliant! She made a bunch of camera shy people feel so comfortable.

We couldn't believe how fast and efficient she was. Brogan had a great understanding of the area where we got married and was able to take the lead and run the show - which made me feel so much more relaxed as this was something I was worried about.

We would 100% recommend Brogan to anyone looking for a great photographer!"

- Maggie & Hamish

"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

"Working with Brogan was really fantastic! She did our engagement and wedding photos, and they turned out amazing!

She is super friendly and easy to work with. She was great at recommending locations and giving direction. We got lots of compliments on our photos.

I would definitely use her again and recommend her to everyone needing a photographer"

- Larnika & Liam

"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

"Brogan is utterly amazing from the very first email we knew that she was who we needed to photograph our special day. My Husband and I aren't photogenic at all and really struggle with getting our photo taken but with Brogan that wasn't something we had to worry about she captured everything so beautifully.

She didn't make us do awkward forced poses she just let us be us whilst capturing the moments beautifully! Since getting our photos back every one has said how great of a job she did and how professional Brogan is.

We would highly recommend Kiwi Captures to anyone."

- Sarah & Fraser

"My hubby and I don't really jump at the opportunity to be in front of a camera, but really wanted our wedding captured for our memories. I came across Brogan on Google as I was searching photographers in the Southland region and her website was the first website to catch my eye.

We had our first face to face with Brogan and can whole heartedly say she was one of the most genuine and kind ladies I had ever met and made me feel comfortable from the get go! My partner and I then did our engagement shoot with Brogan (very very nervous) and Brogan made everything feel so natural, was very easy to talk to and get along with.

I would 100% recommend Kiwi Captures for all your photography needs! She captured our wedding day perfectly and have made us absolutely obsessed with our wedding photos!!"

- Sariah & Ryan

"Highly recommend Brogan and Amy for wedding photography! The photo's speak for themselves but the whole package is sooo much more than that, vendor advice, general advice and planning tips, relaxed experience (even for those who hate getting photos), quick turnaround for the photo's and just generally awesome people.

If your planning on getting married or wanting any other photography done 10/10 recommend for the whole package provided"

- Fallon & Josh

"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

"We decided to use Kiwi Captures as our wedding photographer after seeing some of her work in friends wedding and maternity photos. I loved how she managed to capture not only pretty photos, but the true face of my friends.

On our wedding day, I was a bit worried we would be awkward in front of the camera; as my husband and I are not used to having our photos taken. Luckily Brogan is a pro and made us feel very at ease, in fact half the time we didn't even notice she was there.

She is kind, confident, unobtrusive, talented and caught every special moment of our day. I had the best day on our wedding day and I am stoked that I can relive it all in such detail via the beautiful and real photos we have. Thank you."

- Grant & Monica

"Brogan is incredible!!!! She has amazing communication and check ins in the lead up to the big day. Everybody felt so comfortable & relaxed in front of the camera. Brogan captured our day perfectly, including amazing detailed shots and lots of lovely candid moments. I couldn’t rave about her more!!!

Our album is stunning. Beautiful quality and the photos really tell the story of our day. Brogan was also super speedy on getting our sneak peeks to us and gave us a date for receiving the rest. We were more than happy to wait and were so pleasantly surprised when everything else came much sooner than expected.

We will be recommending you to everybody we know and look forward to hopefully being able to book you to capture many more special moments in our life!"

- Emma & Josh

"Brogan is fantastic! We were thrilled when we first met her, the vibe was great. Throughout the process brogan was full of helpful resources and reminders when we were in the thick of planning.

Unfortunately she wasn't able to shoot for us on the day due to injury, but she arranged a wonderful replacement who was just as great!

The turnaround time and results of the photos were amazing and the package that we received was super cute!! Anyone thinking about their wedding photographer you cannot go wrong with Brogan and Kiwi Captures!"

- Stephen & Imogen

"Brogan was an absolute dream to have on our wedding day, she made everything so easy and smooth! 10/10 would recommend Brogan for all your photography needs.

I am going to need more walls to fit all of our perfect pictures on!"

- Alannah & Cameron

"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 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 💖!!"

- Nicole & Angus

"Me and my Wife were fortunate enough to find Brogan of Kiwi Captures Photography for our wedding. Brogan has done an outstanding job which made our wedding extra special. Kiwi Captures is willing to go the extra mile to make sure their clients are happy and the best part about it is that she makes you feel comfortable taking photos.

Simone and I couldn't have been happier with the job that Kiwi Captures did. Thanks to you guys we have all these memories we can look back to with the photos you guys have taken.

Again id like to us this review to thank Kiwi Captures for giving us wonderful photos! It was very lovely to have you guys in our wedding! Thumbs up from us! "👍👍👍👍📸📸

- R and S Tolentino

"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!"

- Callum & Jasmine

"Brogan was amazing to deal with and we had such a great time, planning and working with her. She captured our day exactly the way we wish to remember it. Thank you for everything!!! ❤️"
