Celia Walmsley Stagebox Photography

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.   Welcome to my work and thanks for your interest in my photography.

I love making amazing images and capturing what’s important to you, the joy you share and your special people. To do this I get to know you and tailor the photography package to suit your style, needs and budget.  My focus is to create the finest memories for you, to share and revisit for years to come.

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

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

Coming from a family of professional photographers I have photographed all my life. I have a Master of Fine Arts (photography) and you can view my artwork here. My focus is professional wedding and dance photography. Follow my wedding blog to catch latest news.
