Your wedding day is a moment in time full of love, romance, laughter, emotion, family and friends.  We at Ever After, specialise in capturing that moment so that it can live on forever.



We love the art of film and photography, it’s our passion!

“From as far back as I can remember film and photography have been part of my life. My father owned a photographic business growing up and our household shares a passion in all things visual. I love to be behind the camera finding different and unique angles to capture (Darren Simmonds)”.

The 29th June 2017 will mark the thirteenth wedding anniversary of my wife Vanessa and I and we are very happily in love.  As a team we enjoy people and love to connect with couples to document their weddings in an artistic and intimate way… this is the core of who we are as people and the heart of our business.

As well as our wedding business we have a specialised film production company called White Horse Productions which focuses in high-end production of television commercials, television programmes, film and photography.

Hours Editing




A wedding video takes us about 40-60 hours to edit and we put our hearts and soul into the whole process. From the choice of music to the colour correction of each image we pride ourselves in delivering a professional quality product that is true to who we are as artists… and you will love it! We always use 3 cameras and 2 videographer’s when filming a wedding. This multiple camera angle view adds a whole new dimension of professionalism and will greatly enhance the coverage and quality of your video. It ensures we always get all the action and will add a very cinematic feel to your final product. At Ever After we use high-end Canon cameras, lenses and broadcast quality high definition digital video and sound equipment. Editing is done using Apple’s Final Cut Pro software.



At Ever After, we aim to be as unobtrusive as possible while maintaining a high standard of professionalism and creativity. We like to be part of your planning process to ensure we understand how your day will unfold in order to be able to capture your wedding in the best possible way. Our film and photographic style is romantic, artistic, emotive yet fun and fresh, depending on the scene. We love to make people feel relaxed in front of the camera. When you have fun we are able to find the moments in between, you know, when you have forgotten the camera is there. As part of our photography service we supply all the high-resolution images of your wedding. There are no hidden fees. Based in Wanaka, our service mainly covers the Queenstown Lakes District area as well as the wider Otago region. We are also happy to travel to other locations, please contact us about your requirements.
