Celia Walmsley - Photographer

Kia ora and welcome.  I'm Celia Walmsley, photographer of Stagebox Photography

Congratulations on your up coming wedding, one of the biggest days of your life.   My focus is to create the finest memories for you, to share and revisit for years to come. 

I love making amazing images but most of all I love getting to know you and capturing what’s important to you, the joy you share and your special people.  I tailor the photography to suit your style and budget.   

My style is relaxed 'subtly guided documentary' to capture you at your most natural.  I guide you only when needed to get the best place, light or moment for you.  Capturing those special moments, people and emotion, alongside the magnificent scenery, are my focus rather than formal, staged photographs.  I blend in with you on the day to catch the moments as they unfold.  

Coming from a family of professional photographers I have photographed all my life and have a Master of Fine Arts (photography).  My focus is professional wedding and dance photography.  

I am based between Queenstown, Wanaka and Central Otago but also photograph weddings in Wellington, Wairarapa, Auckland and Waiheke Island, the UK and France.
