Nicole Gourley Photography

I’m Nicole, and I’m a wedding photographer based in Christchurch, and covering Invercargill, Queenstown and Wanaka.
Photography was only meant to be a short-term thing for me but I’ve never been able to tear myself away from it. Really I’ve spent more time with a camera in my hands than doing anything else over the last 7 years.
I love capturing the real, unposed love that happens on a wedding day. The authentic, candid, and fun moments are the ones that I love the most. Of course if I can photograph those moments in front of a stunning vista then I’m twice as happy!
I’m not a cookie-cutter wedding photographer. You won’t see the same poses coming up in every wedding I shoot. Every wedding is unique and the photographs I capture at each one reflect that. I’d go crazy if I was doing the same thing every time! My work is raw and artistic, rather than routine and posed.

Whether you’re after gorgeous wedding photos, or precious family snaps, let’s chat.

I enjoy lying in the sunshine, reading a good book, and making memories with my hubby Wayne and our beautiful daughter Zoe.
If I sound like I might fit into your wedding day or family portraits, then let’s chat, I’d love to hear from you. You can also keep up with my latest shoots on Facebook.
