  • Your Wedding Day is Priceless

    Your Wedding Day is Priceless

    Things you can’t buy are priceless… your wedding day is one of those things. It 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.

    Ever After offers you the unique opportunity to have your photos and video done as one service.

    This is a great option because your final DVD will contain your full length video, your highlights video as well as a photo slide show set to your choice of music. It works very well on the day as our team are used to working with each other, and it will save you time and money and when booked as a package. Also, you are fully able to customize a package exactly the way you want it.

    We look forward to the opportunity to photograph and film your wedding. Please feel free to contact us to discuss how we can make your wedding day a dream that lasts forever after.

  • Our Style

    Our Style

    At Ever After, we aim to be as unobtrusive as possible while maintaining a high standard of professional and creative production. 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. Most other photographers will make you pay extra if you want to make prints or design an album on your own.

    Based in Wanaka, our service mainly covers the Queenstown Lakes District area as well as the Otago region. We are happy to travel to other locations, please contact us about your requirements.

  • Our Story

    Our Story

    We love the art of film and photography, its 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 share a passion in all things visual. I love to be behind the camera finding different and unique angles to capture.”- Darren Simmonds

    29 June 2011 marked our ninth wedding anniversary of my wife Vanessa and I and we are very happy 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.

    Please see www.whitehorse.co.nz for more information.

    Our Heart & Soul

    We value what you value and we are passionate about making sure we capture your wedding day with discretion, professionalism, and in a creative way that is special to you.

    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 ourselfs in delivering a professional quality product that is true to who we are as artists… and you will love it!

    We always use 3 camera’s and 2 videographer’s when filming a wedding- This multiple camera angle view adds a whole new dimension of professionalism to your video 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 wedding video.

    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.
