our approach/style

We consider our work to be classic storytelling for modern couples and families. We’re all about capturing those genuine connections between people and who you really are. We capture real belly laughs, tears, nerves and the love you have for each, just as you are, because that’s how we would want our lives to be captured too.

Our 2020/21 full day coverage starts at $4500

Your story unravels throughout the day and we want to be there to capture all of the important moments. From the last flick of a make-up brush in the morning to when that dance floor opens – those things you’ve spent months planning – they deserve to be remembered. All of it becomes the story of your day and this is why we think its important to provide a ‘full day’s coverage’ in our wedding package. Our wedding package also includes two photographers, this leaves you with a complete set of images from multiple points of view.

Our engagement sessions start at $400

An engagement session is a perfect practice run for your photos on the big day. It gives you the chance to get familiar with how us as photographers work and what its like to be in front of the camera. The best part is you receive some beautiful natural photos of the two of you. We also love it when our couples choose the location, we encourage finding a spot that’s special to you as a couple. Whether it’s a beach you go to each summer, a cafe you went on your first date or even at your first home together. Of course, if nothing comes to mind, we’ll do the thinking for you!

We had the pleasure of Black Robin photographing our wedding in October. They are so lovely and friendly which helps when you spend a whole day together!, but most importantly the photos are everything we ever wanted. They truly captured the essence of the whole day.

Thank you so much Arie and Tash for our amazing wedding photos! We were both really nervous as we are terrible at being in front of the camera (think Chandler on friends), but you somehow made us feel comfortable enough to just let go and enjoy ourselves. You were both amazing to have with us on the day. Thanks again for capturing our special day.

Arie & Tash are so incredibly talented - Kelly and I couldn’t have asked for better photographers for our wedding. We felt so at ease with them, they gelled with our laid back approach to the day and captured it for exactly what it was - a wedding full of colour, laughter and love. Thank you for everything you did for us, we honestly couldn’t be happier with the outcome! xxx

I can not recommend Black Robin Photography enough! Arie & Tash photographed our wedding in March & we are thrilled with the photos. They captured every moment of the day perfectly, and we had so much fun during the photo shoots. We felt relaxed and comfortable around them, and the many photos of us smiling and laughing reflect this. Thanks so much to this awesome duo for capturing the best day of our lives!

Arie and Tash are the only wedding photographers out there as far as we’re concerned. Not only do they ooze talent and produce incredible works of art, but they are both beautiful people inside and out, bring a super chilled vibe making us feel at ease immediately. My husband and I feel like we’ve got two new friends! The one thing we regret is not getting our photo taken with you. You two were such a huge part of it, we wish we had that photo to go with all the others Xx

You both were amazing. I couldn’t have asked for better photographers. You made us all feel super comfortable and we’re great with everyone. I can’t wait to see the photos! Thank you so much for being part of our day. I will definitely be in touch for other photo shoots.


20 January 2018

Thank you so much Arie and Tash! You did an absolutely amazing job and we are blown away with the photos. Plus it was awesome to have such lovely, relaxed people to share our special day with - you completely put us at ease and made taking photos one of the highlights of the day

We can’t thank Arie & Tash enough for their amazing photography at our wedding. We absolutely loved our photos, and they were awesome people to have alongside us on our big day. What we liked the most about these guys was how easy they made this aspect of the wedding. Right from booking, to the engagement shoot (super handy) to sending us our photos, everything was seamless. Both Arie & Tash were really approachable and accommodating regarding any ideas we might have or what we wanted, which meant our wedding photos ended up feeling very “us”. We also appreciated that there were no hidden fees or extras in their packages. We loved every minute of having Black Robin as our wedding photographers.

These guys are the best!!! We had the pleasure of having them photograph our wedding in Jan, and OH MY goodness we couldn't be more stoked. They are such a pleasure to work with and have around, and the photos are beyond beautiful and everything we wanted and so much more. Arie & Tash managed to capture the most amazing moments, and we couldn't be happier. Such a talented pair, I couldn't recommend them more.

"Arie and Tash were so easy, professional and enjoyable to work with. They made our day so special, were polite and friendly with our friends and family and made the day run smoothly. It was beneficial to have the engagement shoot as an opportunity to both meet Arie and Tash as well as gain some confidence in front of the camera before our wedding day. We couldn't have asked for better photographers for our special day and would highly recommend them to our friends and family."

"We can't thank Arie and Tash enough for the incredible work they did on capturing all the special moments on our big day. The quality of the photos were beyond what we expected or hoped for. They are such an awesome, genuine couple who helped make our wedding an unforgettable day. Arie and Tash both had clear visions which made the experience easy and effortless at the same time as encouraging our input and supporting any direction we wanted to take. They also won our 1 year old over instantly and were so good with him."


Where are you based and do you travel?

We are based in Hamilton and yes! we love to travel, we do as many weddings in the BOP, Taupo and Auckland as we do in the Waikato, so send us a message and we can chat about travel costs.

Can we meet you before booking?

Absolutely! As much as our work, you need to like us too! We’ll be with you for most of the day after all. So let’s catch up for a coffee (or set up a skype meeting if you aren’t close) and we can all get to know each other a little more!

How many photos do we receive?

Each wedding or portrait shoot is different and we don’t shoot to achieve a set amount, we just give you all of the shots we believe tell your story. However on average you can expect to receive around 70 photos per hour of shooting.

How will I receive my photographs?

We deliver our photos via an online album and all of the photos are uploaded in full resolution. From the site you can view your images, share directly to social media and email. You can also download either one photo at a time or the full album at once in both low and full resolution. Our wedding clients also receive our signature print box, this includes a USB drive and 50 4×6 prints of your choice.

When will I receive my photographs?

We aim to make the wait as short as we can, usually we share a few teaser photos within the first week, your full album is usually ready to view within 4-8 weeks of your wedding. USB drives, prints and albums will be a further 2-6 weeks after ordering.

What is required to book you?

Once you’ve decided we’re the photographers for you. We put you into our studio software which will set you up with a online dashboard. On there you’ll find your contract, questionnaires and invoice. Once the contract is signed, booking questionnaire is completed and your deposit is paid($500 for weddings), you’re all locked in.

Can we print our photos?

Heck yes! We’ll give you all the images that tell your story in full resolution and 300DPI, ready to take to your preferred print shop and print as big and as much as you like.

Do you do engagement shoots?

Yes, in fact we think they’re such a good idea, we even do them complimentary for our clients. It’s a great practise run for your wedding day and a way to get use to being in front of the camera. You get to see how we work and the sort of direction we will give you. A chance to get to know us better and you get some sweet photos out of it too (perfect for save the date cards!)

You can see some sample images here.
