"(Sarah) was wonderful to work with and she went over and above to capture everything we asked for and more. Sarah managed to capture lovely scenes of everyone. Sarah's approach is personable, she listens and genuinely wants you to relax and enjoy. She helped us create a once in a lifetime memory and we will forever be grateful." - Hester & James
If you're connected to the outdoor space you're getting married at in the Wairarapa or Tararua regions; you have a sense of adventure; and your style is personal to you as a couple: then Lucalia Photography is the right wedding photographer for you.
I create a relaxed atmosphere for you and your guests, which allows me to capture natural emotions as they occur.
Connected Outdoor Wedding
Would you like to be married in a natural place that means the world to you? Will you choose a location that you are connected too, not just that you think is pretty? I love working with couples who are motivated by your feelings, history and future together, instead of Pinterest. Meaningful locations could be the beach you had family gatherings at as a child; the mountain you climbed together on your first date; your favourite vineyard or the waterfall you've dreamed of visiting together.
Is your favourite thing to do getting active exploring the great outdoors, either at home or overseas? Anything really: bushwalking, tramping, trekking, hiking, mountain biking, skiing, snowboarding, kayaking, camping, rock climbing, four wheel driving and all the rest. Bonus points if you love doing these things together! You believe in the physical and mental benefits of pushing personal boundaries being active outdoors. Let's take my camera on a bushwalk before or on your wedding day, have a laugh and create some adventure photos just for you. I'm a massive fan of wellies and walking boots at weddings!
Your Personal Style
Are you inspired by art and design, and do you enjoy creating photos of your own? Do you gravitate to the hand made, individual and unique? Instead of shopping in cheap chain stores and buying clothes on the internet, you prefer to support local designers, makers and creators. You would rather pay more for quality that lasts. Minimal and meaningful. Translated to your wedding, you're keen to source suppliers from your favourite local network. The wedding dress designer whose shop window to peek into every day walking to work; the florist who uses natives; and the ring designer who creates tiny masterpieces using ethically sourced stones. You'd love to DIY some items for those personal details.
