TAUPO WEDDING VIDEO and PHOTOGRAPHY with Andrew Whyte
Hello, thanks for visiting and congratulations on your engagement. After successfully photographing hundreds of weddings for 10 years and winning many awards for my work I have decided to provide wedding videography and photography in Taupo, Rotorua and the Waikato region. I have developed a passion for filming and editing and want to capture your special day creating wonderful moving memories for you and your family.
For more information please scroll below this example of my photography work.
I can capture photography along with video but the emphasis is on moving pictures, meaning, you will not get a massive blanket coverage of still photos from me but you will get lots of nice photos where they really count. WHY did I change? Because there are so many people snapping away at weddings with photos posted almost immediately on social media, especially during ceremonies. There are times when good directed photography is a must, such as family photos and bridal party formals (this is when my 10 years of experience is valuable). There are times when video and sound is more valuable such as the ceremony, speeches and the party times. I think it is fantastic I can present the whole package but I also enjoy working with dedicated photographers on the day.
2016-17 is my first season with wedding video and I am offering 10% off the marked prices below. A 100% money back guarantee, because, I want my customers to be satisfied with a lasting memory to be enjoyed. My packages can be broken down to suit your priorities and if you prefer to engage another separate photographer. All prices are in New Zealand Dollars and include GST.
A 20% deposit on booking
with the balance on or before your wedding day. Non-refundable after two months prior to your wedding. I do not supply DVD's as I feel these are fading into oblivion and in a few years no one will have a way of playing them. Video and photo files can be downloaded using an online transfer service or put on a USB stick if connections are too slow. I also present the videos online with a private link for easy viewing for you, your friends and family. I do not have a fusion video sample yet to show you as this is the first season I am offering this type of package. You can view samples of my photography here.
If you are still reading this page then you must be interested, probably getting married soon. Yay to you. I have been married to Cathy for many years and together we photographed weddings for 10 years. In 2014 we went to the UK for a two year OE. Having just recently returned we have decided to base ourselves in the beautiful lakeside town of Taupo, just so we can make our English friends extremely jealous. I am a fit 47.. OK 48 year old, who gives everything a 100%. I love being self-employed and the flexibility it gives me. I do have a Waikato BMS degree I only really use to understand the business news and to do our accounts. I absolutely hate letting people down and never intensionally would, rather employ all my talents to make sure that it never happens.
I use a professional video camera on a fluid head tripod and off camera microphones where necessary. I use a smaller camcorder to capture different angles and it does not scare the guests at reception parties . A Nikon DSLR camera for still photography and sometimes video. I don't shoot the trendy 4k video as it creates huge files that are hard to transfer. HD 1080p video is fine for events. I use an iMac and Adobe Premier Pro for video editing.
Please view samples of my wedding photography and other disciplines here and contact me if you wish to make a booking. Phone 022 09700 65 if you want to chat about your wedding. Thank you for visiting and hopefully see you soon, if not, have a wonderful wedding day and be kind to each other always.
