Kind Words

A few kind words from some awesome people!


Andrew + Lusi | Ohariu Farm

"Ivy is a very impressive woman.  Not only is she quite obviously a fantastic mother, but she is a wonderful photographer and someone who is so passionate about capturing the true, natural, and un-posed moments.  She was the photographer for our wedding three weeks ago and I was so impressed and happy with how the photography went on the day but also her service and effort in the lead up.  No question was ever silly, and Ivy was extremely responsive.  In terms of the photos, they are amazing. She also got me the finished product two weeks after our big day which was an incredibly quick turnaround, as well as they came in unique and very special packaging.  Ivy also had a talent at capturing my husband beautifully even though he was extremely camera shy.  She made him feel comfortable and the photos and memories we have from the day mean everything.  Ivy's heart is filled with the joy of helping others and the love of what she does.  And she does it so well!"

"Ivy your vision to 'capture the moment' is nothing short of spectacular!! You are amazingly talented and having you as our photographer has been a pleasure!!!!
We based our wedding on this bible passage from 1 Corinthians 16:14 "Let all that you do be done in love" and you have done that with our photos. Keep up the great work!!!"

the Pauatahanui Lodge

"We had the pleasure and honor of working with Ivy and her team at The Lodge- Pauatahanui this weekend. A large wedding of over 250 guests which was beautifully presented. Ivy remained calm, considered and professional throughout. Her work is very special. What an absolute delight! Professional, committed and just an incredibly amazing person to work alongside. Thank you Ivy, the team at The Lodge look forward to working with you again."

"As I browse through our beautiful photos for the millionth time, and certainly not for the last time lol, I just wanted to take a moment on behalf of my husband and I to say thank you so so so soooo much! We are still in total awe of your amazing work Ivy. Our photos are truly beyond beautiful and I still can not believe how amazing our day looked. Looking through the photos it definitely takes us back right to that moment. You made us feel at ease, feel comfortable, and just be ourselves. We laughed so much during the photos and we still laugh now when we see and remember those true 'kodak moments' lol. Once again Ivy, from the bottom of our hearts, thank you for not only capturing our day beautifully, but for capturing ... our love  There is no doubt that we highly recommend you and your amazing work! xxxxxxxx

With love,

Tale & Tia | aka Mr & Mrs Tala hehe"

"If I could rate Ivy 10 stars I would! Ivy is an extremely talented photographer who is an absolutely pleasure to work with and has a real knack for making you feel at ease in front of the camera. If you want images that will blow you away every time you look at them book Ivy!"

Joe + Seia | Savai'i, Samoa

"Was absolutely blown away by Ivy's' talent to capture every moment of our special day. We are so glad that we were able to have her, as initially we thought there was no way we were able to afford it, but with Ivy's guidance and options we were able to do so and being a big fan of her work, it was a dream come true for me and the best investment we have ever made and would recommend anyone that is going through the same situation. Very professional and made us feel as ease during the whole the shoot. Understood what our vision and with each photo was able to tell OUR LOVE STORY..... Which in the end, what any bride and groom can ever dream of. Adore the packaging and the album. xx"
