Wedding Photographer & Family Photographer

Every Photo Is a  Celebration

Photographs are an essential part of our stories and our histories. They connect us to the past and to each other, which is why every photo is a celebration of who we are right here and now.

Based in Waikato, New Zealand,  I love to photograph weddings, families and small businesses –  wherever they are.

Portrait of Kate Ryan, Ryan's Daughter Photography

Hi I’m Kate. I believe in celebrating all the unique, perfectly imperfect stories of our lives in the best way I know how – through photographs. I take authentic photos that look and feel like who you are, photos that mean something to you, and photos that are fun, connected and full of joy. I believe that every photo is a celebration. Your life is happening right now and there is no better time than right now to celebrate that.

 As a specialist weddExit Visual Buildering & family photographer, I create candid and connected photos of you and your family that tell your unique story.

I document the treasured moments of your wedding day, the seasons of your family life and create “uniquely you” photos. And then I bring them into reality through gorgeous prints so that you can enjoy for a lifetime, and that your family will treasure in generations to come.

Getting to know you is so important to me, so I meet with every one of my clients over coffee (or virtual coffee!)  to find out what’s important to you and together we plan the best way to document your wedding day or your family story.

Centrally based in Te Awamutu, I regularly travel throughout the Waikato and Bay of Plenty and New Zealand wide to tell your stories.
