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 a specialist all-in-one photography, video and planning company. You’ll work with Melissa before your wedding who will organise everything and everyone. Scott is your photographer, videographer, tie knotter, problem-solver and friendly face to help with the nerves on the day itself. No big crew of strangers, we keep it personal and simple. Have fun, love each other and get married!


Scott (the Aussie) is an ex-professional sky-diver turned photographer, award-winning film-maker, editor 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 (the 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 and Sunshine organised and is the one on the end of every Sunshine email. Melissa, Scott (and 6 year-old Nina) also run the family gallery in Riverton. So life is rich and full!
