about ciara

I met my boyfriend Jordan whilst we were both travelling overseas. He was living in Central Australia at the time, and had taken two weeks off to explore the other side of the world. We both happened to be on the same tour, and after 6 months of returning home, he packed his bags for NZ -and the rest is history.

Now we live in Auckland together. It`s a pretty awesome place. It kinda has everything, beautiful beaches, waterfalls.

we try and venture out of the city as much as possible. We love experiencing new places, food and culture, and are often dreaming up our next destination

-Although nothing quite beats New Zealand

I would love to sit down and grab a coffee, or chat over skype. I wanna hear about the things that are important to you, what make you, you.

I don`t want to come along as just another vendor on your wedding day, I want to be a familiar face, possibly even a friend and that way when it comes to taking some portraits, we can just hang out, and create some magic.

When I capture a wedding, I`m invested. I`ll be helping you fix your hair, carrying your veil and flowers, I`ll help the pilot dig out the wheel of the plane if needed. (This has happened). When I first ventured into the world of wedding photography, I had no idea how many incredible people I would meet and stories I would become intertwined with. Since then I have been fortunate enough to travel the world capturing the magic of weddings. I`m drawn to subtle, romantic and authentic imagery. I capture your day as it naturally unfolds -your family, friends and your love, this is what a wedding is all about.

"She suggested these hidden gem-like places for our photos, which we would never have known of. She is everything you expect in a photographer, with all the communication leading up to the day, and More.

Ciara was our wedding photographer. She is such a sweet genuinely lovely person, and made our day less stressful. She goes above and beyond and is really talented. Our wedding was in Waitakere and she suggested these hidden gem like places for our photos, which we would have never known of. These included a secluded waterfall, and a quiet part on the beach. She is everything you expect in a photographer and more to capture your special day, and all the communication leading up to the day."
