Pros: Jimmy is great at photographing small gatherings and seminars where he ensures that he photographs subtly to get those natural guest mingling photos at your event. He is a bokeh guy so if you want something moody with smooth bokeh in the background to use for your instagram, hit him up. He takes awesome graduation photos especially ones with you holding your beautiful bouquet of flowers, so book him in for a one on one photo sesh! He enjoys producing black and white photos for that minimalistic classic look.

Cons: He's a Sydney boi, so unfortunately Auckland peeps can't book him in. He prefers doing video over photo and when he does photo, he snaps his pics in burst mode, so you get a lot of photos that look very similar to each other. 

Pros: Correy is tall and can get to those high angles when recording video footage, this is perfect for school balls and birthday parties.

He is a speedy shooter and gives out quite a lot of photos. The amount of dedication he gives at each photo session is amazing, he will give it his all to the get adorable kid photos, even if it means for him to squat low down and run after them to get those candid photos of them having fun or eating a cupcake. Also, he enjoys posting up sneak peeks to get everyone super excited after the event

Cons: He works full time during the week and would only be able to work Saturday gigs. He is a little bit less experienced than Joyce as he doesn't attend as much events as she does, but other than that he is amazing.

Pros: Joyce is a photographer that shoots insanely fast and loves generously giving her clients tonnes of beautifully edited photos. She covers a large range of photo sessions so she is not limited to only birthday parties or weddings. She's a video editor too btw, creating wholesome videos using her trusty Premiere Pro. So if you've cried watching one of our wedding films or birthday videos then it is probably edited by Joyce or Correy. She mingles in easily with the guests and is a chatterbox. Her photos are candid (she gets those posed group photos too don't worry), ultra HD, bright, dynamic, clear and sharp. She edits her photos as if people had sunkissed complexions and it's super gorgeous. 

Cons: Therefore, she is relatively pricer than the others. Because she is booked out most of the time, her editing pile is huge and it's all lined up according to which event happened first and last, making her slow at sending out her galleries. Waiting in line requires a lot of patience and I apoligise for that, but I promise you, the wait will all be worth it.

Pros: Videographer Aitken knows his hustle real well and can colour grade and edit videos nicely. He's got a lot of lighting equipment on hand and he knows how to use em to its maximum potential. He dresses very well for events, like he will literally put on a suit and tie at your wedding so wah lah! The professional vibes just come straight out. He has a two camera set-up for weddings so one is handheld on a gimbal for roaming and one is on a tripod where he adjusts the angles and placement every so often to get those lovely moments of you.

Cons: He tends to edit highlight videos to only 3-4 minutes long, so this style would suit people that want a short video to generally summarise the event and get candid footage of people.

Pros: Dylan is an easy going guy that will hardcore flash at you like what Joyce does which ensures that the style of photographing people, vibrancy, clarity and quantity aspects all meet the May Dream photographer requirements. Being fully trained up by Joyce you can be assured that he gets the job done amazingly. Whether if it's the staged group photos, candid guests mingling shots or emotional speech reaction shots. Dylan is only available on weekends and can take on any real estate work or 21st birthday parties or parties in general. 

Cons: He is rather quieter and speaks quite softly so if you want a photographer that is loud and hollers posing guidance at you, he is not your match. He will try to dance with you on the dance floor, but there's no guarantee on that as he prefers to be on the sidelines, taking photos from the outskirts of the dance floor.

Covid-19 Announcement:

 

 

Keeping you and your loved ones safe

Joyce attends A LOT of events one after another in a short space of time. With such a huge number of guests attending, moving from one large party to another without any safety precautions is risky for you and for me. Therefore to prevent herself from accidentally catching covid and unknowingly become a silent community spreader, she will put on a fresh new face mask right before each event, to stop her flying droplets from going everywhere when she speaks.

Cause she does talk A LOT

Sometimes she also needs to get quite close up to the client and guests to interact with them and give them posing ideas. 

Despite that NZ has been declared to be

"Covid Free" the rest of world is still currently battling this pandemic.

She feels that it is appropriate to take such  measures, because covid can exist without showing any symptoms.  And me transferring from one event to another poses a high risk to others if I don't wear a face mask.

Thank you for your understanding and consideration! xoxo
