Celia Walmsley - wedding photographer

Kia ora and Welcome to the home of Stagebox Photography.

My photography is all about people  - wedding photography, portraits, headshots, familydance and events photography.  

I'm your specialist wedding and portrait photographer in Queenstown, Wanaka, Cromwell, Clyde, Alexandra, Central Otago, Wellington, Kapiti, Wairapapa and Waiheke Island, Aotearoa New Zealand.   Yup 'I have camera and will travel' - I travel a in New Zealand and also photograph weddings in the UK and France in the northern summer (well up until this year!).  

Wedding Photography
If you've just got engaged - congratulations and I'll bet your super excited about your upcoming wedding.

Looking for that special photographer who will take away the stress of the wedding photography?   I love working with you to help you decide what you want for your photography and then I achieve it for you.  

I’m totally into personalising your wedding photography experience and treat every couple as special friends.  I offer bespoke photography packages to suit grand, all day, boutique, petite, 2nd time and elopement weddings, to suit your style and budget.

My natural style is relaxed, joyful and richly coloured, capturing the story, emotion, individuality and special people of your day.  I do though alter my style to suit you and the day.  If you want a dramatic, moody or soft, light look I create and edit, within the bounds of the day, to reflect the look and feel you want.   

When the vows are made, the food is eaten and wine drunk, when the dress is back in the cupboard, it's the photos that you'll return to again and again, to relive all the special moments of your day.  It's worth spending time to get exactly the photography you want because these photos outlast all the other parts of the day and will be shared and treasured forever.

Portraits, Headshots and Family
I do Headshot photography, Personal Branding, studio portraits and family portraiture in Queenstown, Wanaka, Central Otago, Wellington, Wairarapa and Kapiti.  A Headshot is a head and shoulders image for use on your website, CV, or profile.  Personal Branding images are an extension of a Headshot - they don't just put a face to a name, they tell a story about you and your work or business. 

For performing artists I offer a different kind of Headshot session which displays your ability to portray specific theatrical characters and persona, as well as you. 

For families it's a big deal getting the family together all in one place.  So when you do it's wonderful to capture the memories with your significant people in a family portrait.  Special occasions, milestones, Christmas, Easter and holiday get togethers are all great times for a family portrait.  

Dance and Performing Arts
With a 20 year career in the arts as theatre director, arts manager, festival director and photographer, I've been privileged to photograph many of the worlds great dance, theatre and music artists.  I am honoured to be one of the official photographers for the Royal New Zealand Ballet and specialise in photography for dance and performing artists.
