Bula!

We’re Laurence & Elle born and bred in beautiful Fiji and Nadi Bay Photography is our little venture going on 7 years now.

Laurence is the photographer in our little team, the one behind the camera failing miserably at being funny and witty which is his very own brand of humour while Elle tinkers away behind the scenes bringing everything together. We make a pretty good team and our son Riley should soon be in training to join Mum & Dad. As soon as he weighs more than the camera bag you can expect to see him out on assignments.

Being local we know all the good spots and have known most of the staff at nearly all of the resorts all over the country for a good number of years now, so you would be in good hands. Our roots run deep in Fiji with both our families having arrived here a few generations ago and as it goes in Fiji everyone knows everyone, so don’t be surprised if Laurence points out that in fact the lead singer of your band is his uncle, your wedding planner is his sister, or your celebrant played bass in ‘Battle of the Bands’ against his dad 50 years ago!

Laurence’s photographic style has been described as classic, timeless and beautifully natural. He has a talent for incorporating the stunning Fijian landscape into his photographs as well as being excellent at the specialised area of night photography. We often hear from couples about how relaxed he makes them feel in front of the camera and how everyone enjoys his company. Why not have a look at our portfolio or even better our client galleries for yourself and if you like what you see, get in touch.

If you have chosen Fiji for your destination wedding then congratulations, you obviously have great taste! Fiji is the place to be and we are lucky to call it home. It would be an honour if you chose us to capture your wedding day, we can’t wait to hear from you.

Vinaka & see you soon!
