Firstly, HUGE congratulations to those planning a wedding – it will truly be the one of the best days of your life and I Do Photography would love to be a part of it.

As principle photographer of I Do Photography, it gives me such delight to share in a couple’s most special day and provide images to share with others and memories to love for life.

With a background in fashion photography, I take that approach on weddings, creating beautiful natural images that evoke emotion. I love all the little details that make your wedding unique and capturing spontaneous moments that tell your story.

With over ten years in the industry, I have photographed weddings both nationally and internationally. My images are regularly featured in magazines such as New Zealand Weddings, Bride and Groom, Cosmopolitan Bride and on the sites of Magnolia Rouge,   Style Me Pretty, The Lane, Love My Way and Love Me Do.

I am passionate about not only providing you with beautiful images, but also an amazing experience from planning right through to delivery of the images.

I would love to hear more about your wedding plans;

“Jody managed to capture the complete mood and feel of the most incredible day of our lives.
A true professional in every aspect and the work she produced from our day is like nothing I have ever seen before. A perfect balance of tradition and fashion/documentary means that we have something to remember every part of our day.
I spent a lot of time looking for a photographer that was going to be right for us and Jody is that person, from start to finish she is in a class of her own.
She is amazing” Anna & Jay Reeve

“We spent two hours pouring over our beautiful photos last night……absolutely speechless! They are so amazing, exactly what we were wanting – natural shots, gorgeous lighting, beautiful soft colours – and you managed to make two not-very-photogenic people take nice photos!!!! Was so much fun reminiscing, and seeing the moments that we missed – each other getting ready, guests faces etc. So glad we chose you as a photographer, a million and one thank you’s for capturing our day – we would recommend you to anyone!!! Thank you so much – photographic genius/goddess!!!” Kate & Sam

“I. Am. Speechless!  Oh my oh my oh my! The photos are perfect and gorgeous is an understatement. Jody – thank you again; there really aren’t enough thank yous to express how much we love our photos and working with you.” Kate & James

“They are absolutely stunning. Thank you SO much! We are so thankful to have found you!” Kimberley & Adam

I just wanted to drop a note to say thank you so much for doing such an amazing job capturing our big day. The photos have turned out better than I can ever have imagined, and everything has been captured so beautifully. The imagination you used with finding such perfect photo spots with no help from us was amazing – and everything you picked and imagined has worked. I also loved all the family shots and the ceremony, you managed to capture everything in such a natural way without getting any bad angles of us at all – genius! I can’t believe how many of our friends and family have ordered copies, and the feedback I have had is that they are some of the most beautiful wedding photos anyone has seen. My dream for my wedding day was photos that I can be so proud of forever, for sharing with my children and grandchildren one day, and saying yes Nana really was that beautiful, and that day was perfect – and your photos have given us that memory. And as well as all that, you were so much fun to have around! Take care, and thank you again.” Toni & Justin

“Just fabulous fabulous stunning beautiful gorgeous photos!! Exactly what we wanted, so dreamy, romantic and natural!! Thank you so much for the pics – we completely LOVE them” Nikki & Kenneth
