Kia Ora!

My name is Elise and I am an award-winning photojournalist based in Auckland, New Zealand. I grew up in the United States and recently moved to the City of Sails with my husband, my cameras and my knitting stash.

I work primarily in the field of documentary-style photography and specialize in wedding, family and editorial photography. The purpose behind my work at Elise Marie Photography is to tell a unique story. A story that is as meaningful to you today as it will be years from now.

I’ve spent most of my working life in newsrooms and and taking photos for magazines. I am excited to bring my unique perspective to your shoot. When you work with me you will discover that I love to laugh, to make sure everyone is having a great time and that you and your family end up with images you will treasure forever.

Let’s get coffee and talk about how I can help bring your photo dreams to life! Hope to hear from you soon.
