Hello! Thank you so much for making it to this page. It means a lot to me that you want to get to get to know me. My name is Rebecca Claridge, a professional photographer based in Christchurch, New Zealand. Photography is my passion, and I have loved taking photos for as long as I can remember.

A few years ago I moved to Christchurch from Auckland (the year of the February Earthquake great timing!) and studied photography at CPIT in Christchurch, after studying I worked for a photographer for a few years. My husband and I have been married for 6 years now, we have entered the exciting world of parenthood with our 6 month old Lucas, and also have our fur children, a dog called Willow who is a retrodoodle (Poodle X Retriever incase you were wondering!) and a cat called Alvin. In my spare time I love exercising, horse riding, walking,baking and trying new recipes, who doesn’t?!

Maybe you are wondering what my “style” is? My style as real, authentic, emotive, capturing things as they happen. Showing real connections, capturing special moments, making memories, telling your story, because most of all, I’m here to photograph YOU. I always pay attention to the light surrounding me, as light plays such a big part in photography. I love trying new things, and always trying to capture something unique to you and your wedding! Of course not everyone is confident in front of the camera, which is why I am there to give you guidance and support, and make you feel as comfortable as possible. Ultimately I like to think of my shooting style as being relaxed and fun, and am always happy to give direction where necessary! As a matter of fact I am available all year round, and would love to share your special moment with you. 🙂 Weddings are my passion, but Portraits also have a special place in my heart. Family portraits, business portraits, babies or even pets! Did I mention horses?!

Want to know something else great? I’m a big lover of helping the environment and animals. A small donation from each wedding ($10) and portrait booking ($5)  is donated to a great New Zealand cause, either the Keep New Zealand Beautiful Charity, or the SPCA. You get to choose!

 I think it is so important to make sure that you get along with your photographer, and make sure you are on the same page. I love meeting up with clients, and prospective clients. We can easily meet in a local cafe/bar or even have a chat over the phone or Skype, and we can have an obligation free chat about your wedding, or portrait session, In fact I actually suggest it! Please contact me if you would like to hear more about what I offer, or discuss how I can help you x

Everything was perfect. From the planning stage, to help on the day, to communication and delivery of photos after the event. You were fantastic all the way through.

Privacy Statement

We highly recommend Rebecca for wedding photography! She was professional yet really friendly, methodical and kept us to time on our day which was so appreciated. She was super creative with poses and backdrops etc. Throughout our special day Rebecca was along-side us quietly capturing our special moments. The after service has been amazing, from her photo package to the editing and printing we are really impressed!  – Kelly & Cameron

You’re such a lovely person! There are a lot of stressed people around at weddings but you always looked so calm and in control and made everyone feel really comfortable around you. In fact there were times we completely forgot you were around. You got everyone in our massive bridal group of 13 people to do exactly what you wanted, which, knowing them (…and us), is quite an impressive skill! You are crazy fast in getting the shots you need so we could spend our time well and move around to lot’s of different spots. And the photos turned out absolutely gorgeous. There isn’t anything that we think is missing or that we would have done differently in hindsight. You were the perfect choice for us and our venue. We’d choose you again any day!! – Sabine & Matt
