Hey I'm Katrina

Self Portrait Katrina Cooke Photography

I seek connection, the relationships, the laughs, THE STORY

I’ve been photographing weddings for 5 years now and I’m so grateful to be able to do this job year after year celebrating the most incredible people and capturing the most incredible moments all over New Zealand. I’m based in Auckland, but travel wherever the story takes me.

I love coffee, snow and cozy blankets, yes I probably shouldn’t be living in Auckland, but I think that comes back to my English roots. I was born in the UK and moved to New Zealand when I was 16. A true English Kiwi, despite my love for the winter months, my heart is happy when I wake up on a wedding morning and the sun is shining and I know I get to capture another beautiful love story.

I’m happiest behind the camera, so I know all about that very common feeling of awkwardness that comes with having your photo taken, but I’m here to make that feeling go away and help you to enjoy the moment and have fun with it. My style is candid and natural with a touch of gentle direction, I want you and your family to feel relaxed in front of the camera, and I will be there to capture all the special moments.

I’m dedicated to providing and effortless service to my clients. I’ll be your go to person both before during and after the day, help with planning, stress less on the day so that you can be free to boogie with your friends. You’ll be guided through the whole process effortlessly, with the final result being photographs that celebrate your connection, your individuality and your story.

You deserve to have your love story told in a beautiful and meaningful way……

My mission is to create photos and memories that will speak to you for years to come. When you look back at your wedding photos in 20 years I want you to feel like it was just yesterday and relive those moments and theconnection you felt on the day.

Katrina was our wedding photographer and we were so happy with our choice. The end result photos are more than we could have dreamed - there are so many we love that it's made it really hard to choose which photos to put in the wedding album! We also received many compliments from guests who were impressed with Katrina on the day.
Thanks again Katrina and thanks also for your invaluable advice during the wedding planning stages too!

Katrina was so helpful and her communication outstanding. We are absolutely obsessed with our photos and feel they capture our day so well. Our package also included an engagement shoot, which was a beautiful added bonus.

Oh my goodness!! These are the most amazing photos ever and better than anything we ever imagined.

Thank you again so so much. You are so talented and amazing to have around! Couldn’t have asked for a better way to capture our day!
