We are a leading wedding and elopement photography company based in New Zealand. We have been photographing weddings for 7 years.We are also educators and regularly host workshops and well as online classes. We did not come from a photography background but fell in love with documenting weddings and going on photo adventures with couples.
Telling a story through images could be considered a new art form, a new mechanism through which the person behind the lens can see beyond the obvious. That is exactly what happens with Chasewild Photography, the team formed by James and Cameron who, from New Zealand, have become known for being leaders in wedding photography and using formats, such as elopement. After seven years, this couple has taken on the task of conquering the most charming corners of the world with their cameras and turning them into breathtaking sceneries.
Although they don’t come from a photography background, they both fell in love with documenting the adventures of couples at weddings and casual shoots. According to them, New Zealand has allowed them to get a closer look at an enviable part of the world and find unique locations to photograph perfect moments. Natural scenery has become one of his greatest inspirations, lands that soon become photographic frames for couples who dream of immortalizing memories with enviable landscapes. Chasewild Photography’s goal is to play with everything around them, including the use of light and even the influences of street photography.
Of course, the couples themselves are the number one inspiration in the work of Chasewild Photography, they are the ones who unwrap everything that goes along with their story to make those photographs an extension of who they are and what they seek to reflect. Each session becomes a challenge that is brought to completion with the intention of exceeding expectations, to manifest changes and to ensure that not a single click is the same as the previous one. With that in mind, James and Cameron have also taken on the task of getting involved in education with chasewildclass.com, enabling other photographers to develop their full creative potential.
The style of his photographs ranges from alternative to more elegant, the point is to see beyond the limits and take their vision of the world and love to other creative panoramas. What is always maintained is the consistency not only in quality, but in the improvement of the image through technique and sensitivity. Nothing goes unnoticed when it comes to surprise the senses of couples, whether in short sessions or in weddings fully documented from many perspectives. The work of inspiration is done beforehand, planning locations, lighting schemes and everything necessary to create magic.
If you thought their work was only in New Zealand, you’re wrong! Chasewild Photography explores any part of the world when it comes to weddings, which is why they have managed to document over 280 celebrations in more than 15 countries around the world. Coffee, travel and adventure lovers Cameron and James have taken their company to conquer new territories, always bearing the imprint of freedom, uniqueness and good vibes in each couple… one photo at a time.
