We receive lovely feedback and comments from all areas of our photography. Below are a few lovely "thank you"s we have been given recently.

Woolf Photography have photographed a number of seriously cool weddings recently. Quite a few of our weddings have allowed us to Blog and/or Facebook Post shortly after the Big Day’s activities. Last weekend we photographed Bianca and Dave’s Wedding at Wallaceville House. This was Bianca’s response the day after what was a totally amazing event.

“Words cannot express how grateful we are for all your time today capturing our special day x Bianca”

Recently we did some further portfolio type imagery for publisher Harper Collins, which involved an outdoor environment Portrait Shoot at Mt Crawford Prison. The purpose was for the front cover of a book by Dr Paul Wood

This was Alex Hedley from Harper Collin’s response to the previews we sent through:

“Thanks Simon! This is good work.”

Don and Ruth

Don and Ruth came into our studio for a series of 50th Wedding Anniversary Photos. Son Jed, who booked their appointment said. “Mum and Dad had just the best experience. They enjoyed the session and the special attention they received. Thank you for the great communication from start to finish. The whole family just loves the photos you took!”



The neonatal trust

This year, Woolf Photography donated a number of framed works to the neonatal trust to brighten up their environment. This was very well received by the community.

Dear Simon and the entire Woolf Photography Team,
A note of huge thanks for your support with the wonderful images to brighten up the Wellington NICU and the Lower Hutt SCBU.
They look fantastic and will help to cheer up the environment.
All the very best and thanks once again

Commercial Photography

Woolf Photography was recently engaged by Samuel Marsden Collegiate School to photograph one of their Campuses for a new school prospectus and a range of targeted marketing materials ...

Woolf Photography did an outstanding job of capturing our students on campus, a challenging subject! They made the preparation and planning easy with clear and efficient communications and our photographer Jess was friendly, calm and professional, putting the students at ease and providing excellent shots for us. We received our photos promptly after the shoot in the format requested and are very happy with the service we received all around. Thank you Woolf Photography!

Workshop photography: A VERY HAPPY RESULT!

Bump-to-baby photography

"I purchased a Baby to Bump special when I was pregnant with my son in 2013.
The sessions were so great and such good value that we purchased an
additional package!  So my husband and I had our first session when I was
pregnant, another session when our baby was 6 weeks old and then every 6
months since then. As a result we have amazing record and beautiful photos
of our son who is now 2 years old.

The experience has been fantastic. Jess [Dewsnap] took our photos at every session so
really got to know our style and personalities. She was really great and
made us feel relaxed and comfortable from the start. Every session was alot
of fun and the talented Jess got alot of different style photos for us to
choose from on each occasion. You even get a complimentary print from each
session! We are so rapt with the results.

We also dealt a lot with Toni who organized our sessions, orders and any
requests/questions and showed us the photos post shoot on a big screen so we
could short list. She is extremely helpful and patient.

I would highly recommend Woolf Photography and in particular the wonderful
packages they offer."  Read Jagger's Blog here...

Keiti and Ropeti

Keiti and Ropeti were married on January 18th. Everyone involved had just the most amazing time.  Below are excerpts from an email we received, which we are so grateful for.

 From Keiti and Ropeti:

 "Dear Simon

Thank you so much for your blog also, the pictures as a preview are so exciting, we can’t wait to see the rest. It was also a great way for our friends and family to see some photos so quickly after the wedding. Jess has also given us a sneak peak at some pics and little touches she can do digitally. The selection highlighted to us just how creative and expressive your photography can be, you’ve taken special moments we will cherish forever and enhanced them to make them even more meaningful and touching, you’ve made us look even more amazing on the most important day of our lives, we give credit to your amazing team and now feel just how important and valuable quality wedding photography is.

We are so pleased to see in the preview that you have captured details which are meaningful to us, and we can now have visual reminders of these, rather than just the memories - superb! Jess has passed on the videos which we haven’t quite had a chance to see yet, but are so excited this was provided for us – actual snapshots on the day, what a fabulous bonus!

Your kind words about photographing our wedding were also very humbling and we were privileged and honoured to have you as our photographer. Thank you for your time, effort and patience. Thank you also for lending the beautiful and talented Jess for the week of the wedding, not to mention having her there on the day, we don’t know what we would have done without her!

A happy client after a Brand campaign photo-shoot:

"Working with Woolf was a professional experience from start to finish.  After scoping our needs and listening to our brief, Woolf delivered a finished product that truly represents our brand and exceeds our expectations. The photography is stunning, the project management throughout the creative process was superb and the suite of campaign images are something we are proud to showcase to our audiences."
