Terrace Downs Wedding, Christchurch Wedding Photographer


A wedding is the highlight of the year for not only yourself and your loved one, but also for many of your friends and family.

On paper, weddings can be quite similar to each other – walking up the aisle, exchanging of the rings, making your vows – but in practice, it's amazing at how different one wedding can be to another. Believe me, I know! Having been to so many different weddings, I always take the greatest pleasure in seeing how well a wedding reflects the unique personalities of the bride and groom.

As there is so much that goes into planning a wedding, I've put together a series of tips and guides to help you to plan your wedding and choose a wedding photographer to suit your own unique tastes and style.

Heather & Doug

Kind, quirky and colourful.

"Hey, We're Heather & Doug.

We're known for loving rainbows, excessive jumping shots, and eating waaaay too many Raspberry Chocolate Logs... (ok that last bit is just me)

And that's what we like to bring to every photo shoot..
Colour, energy & a bit of sweetness."

Kind Words

  •  - Heather Ellis Photography, wedding photographer christchurch

    "Words cannot describe how pleased we were with Heather and Doug! They worked as a team throughout the day capturing every moment from two different perspectives. Heather provides fantastic direction - perfect for anyone who's not a supermodel by trade but wants to look fabulous on their big day. They made every photo effortless (for us at least!). Heather's warmth and fun spirit with Doug's kindness and professionalism drew out the best in us, making each shot real – not cheesy! The day flew and it was so nice looking back and seeing every moment caught just as we remembered it.
    Canmore in Canada is a small town and has A LOT of weddings every weekend but feedback from the locals is and I quote "the best wedding photos they've ever seen!!!". They rose to the mountain challenge and completely blew us all away. Beyonce couldn't get a photography team this good! So trust us when we say BOOK HEATHER ELLIS PHOTOGRAPHY AND DO IT NOW!!!!!"

    "From the moment we met Heather, we knew she was going to be great. Heathers passion for photography (and life!) is captured in her photos. Her energy is incredible, when working with Heather we felt at ease, and had a blast. Getting photos with the bridal party was a really special part of the day, thanks to Heather and Doug we all had so much fun and memories to treasure. Our wedding photos are beautiful; we are over the moon with the result. Thank you Heather and Doug, you did an amazing job."

    "Heather, we can't thank you enough! You made our day SO incredibly special with your creativity, big smile and professionalism. What an absolute blessing you were on our day! We're over the moon happy. Everyone commented on how amazing you were and despite the cold you made it FUN! Love your work, you have many new fans!!"

    "Heather and Doug, where do we start! Neither of us are really "photo" people, but we wanted to capture the special moments of our wedding day in a way that showed who we are. Planning our Christchurch wedding from Auckland, we could have easily forgotten that you were in a different island – thank you for your great communication skills! The engagement shoot the week before the wedding was a great way to ease the nerves, have some fun, and of course get to know each other a little better. And the final result of our choice – fun, easy going, relaxed and absolutely awesome wedding photos which couldn't have been better. We really couldn't have made a better decision, and it was so much fun sharing our wedding day with you both."

Photos for me are like memories of our life, memories must be colourful, and Heather is not afraid to use beautiful colours in her work, she loves rainbows, and I can see all her work is like rainbow of her passion for photos and life, and this is why I love her.Thank you so much Heather for making our family session such a beautiful day and for capturing some amazing pictures of our girls."

  • "You are really amazing ... I absolutely love looking at your work. Truly truly do. To be honest, I never cared much for photography, actually it was your work that had me appreciating what photography really is. I'm converted, I'm a Believer! "
