Sunshine Weddings

Who Are We?

Sunshine is…

a husband and wife elopement wedding photography and film team. We LOVE, LOVE, LOVE elopement weddings working with just a couple. So that’s what we do! Sunshine weddings are intimate, joyous ceremonies set in the rugged alpine beauty of Queenstown.
We’ve been a part of the local Queenstown wedding industry for more than 10 years and are the only specialist all-in-one photography, video and planning company in the region. Which means you don’t have a whole team of other people surrounding you on the day. Keeping it personal and simple without the fuss of other companies and freelancers with conflicting shooting and post-productions styles. Our goal is to help make your experience all about the two of you, fun and stress-free.


Scott (our Aussie) is an ex-professional sky-diver turned film-maker, editor, photographer and a bit of a tech geek. He’s not afraid of a cheeky pint and is an exceptional cook who’s been known to spend a couple of days cooking braised beef cheeks. Seriously! Scott’s a natural at helping people relax and enjoy themselves, whether it’s while throwing them out of a plane, or being photographed on their wedding day.


Melissa (our Kiwi) first picked up a camera as part of a graphic design degree many years ago and hasn’t stopped doing both since! These days she keeps Scott organised and is the one on the end of every Sunshine email. Melissa, Scott (and 5 year-old Nina) also run the family gallery in Riverton. So life is rich and full!
