Warren + Katrina Williams | Mountain Weddings
We are a husband and wife wedding team living amongst the beautiful mountains of Queenstown. We were married on Leap Day 2012 and have two young sons, Jakob and Zachary.
We’ve been in the wedding industry for a combined 20 years, indulging in many areas of the photography industry around the world. Warren celebrated his 10 year wedding photography anniversary in October 2015.
Our passion for weddings has taken us to the frozen lochs of Scotland, to the colourful reefs of the islands and now, rocky mountain peaks of Queenstown, New Zealand.
Mountain Weddings is a bespoke mountain wedding planning service – creating your dream intimate wedding or elopement in one of the most beautiful wedding destinations in the world.
We are big lovers of light and would love to plan your wedding adventure with the best possible conditions to get those wow shots. Most of our weddings take place late in the day and make the most of the golden hour.
We love that our work speaks volume in itself. On the few occasions we have submitted our photography work, we’ve done pretty well, including:
15 NZIPP Iris Awards in 2013 & 2016
Kodak Gold Award Winner four years in a row, 2011-2014.
Shoot & Share – Finalist in 2015 & 2017 – (Top 15 out of more than 100,000 entries worldwide)
New Zealand Geographic – Young Photographer of the Year – 2010
New Zealand Geographic – Photographer of the Year finalist – 2016
Most of all, we encourage you to book on the style of photography and the experience and personality we bring into your Mountain Wedding.
