Capturing moments that matter

in the Garden City

Relaxed and authentic Christchurch Wedding photographer

From boutique vineyards to majestic venues overlooking the Canterbury plains, there are an abundance of unique venues and getaway locations with beautiful scenery. 

For couples who are looking for an off-site photography adventure or want to find that epic shot that captures the essence of their love story, Christchurch is the place to find it and I’ll help you find it.

Imagine sun-kissed photos full of laughter among the grapevines, paddocks, and mature trees of a vineyard. Perhaps an intimate embrace in front of Christchurch’s rugged mountains or the spectacularly blue Rakaia River. 

Whatever your dreams, together we can make them come true.


I'm Roy

I’m a Christchurch wedding photographer for big-hearted couples who want to capture the feelings of happiness, love, and fun during their special day.
Every wedding is a unique experience as every couple has their own unique combination of personalities. I’m passionate about creating timeless images you will fall in love with, and I treasure the relationships and connections built throughout the process.

With years of experience photographing hundreds of weddings, from intimate elopements to large occasions, I’ve learned to work like the ebb & tide: calmly and purposefully. My job is to make being in front of the camera as relaxed and enjoyable as possible so you can focus on what really matters – celebrated with your loved ones.

I love being a wedding photographer. Giving couples the ability to relive all those intimate moments again and experience any they didn’t witness on the day – it’s priceless. 

If that sounds like what you’ve been looking for, get in touch. I can’t wait to hear your plans for your special day or romantic elopement.

“I am so glad I found Roy and was lucky enough to secure him to photograph our wedding. We felt so comfortable around them that they truly just felt like friends who were there to share our day with us. We were absolutely blown away when we got our photos back, they are breath-taking. If you’re looking for a photographer that captures the little moments without you realising they are there, then Roy Byrne Photography is the one for you.”
