Jesse and Jessie - Wedding Photography
"welcome to the love club"
We are Jesse and Jessie, aka Mr and Mrs Peters
We love candid, raw moments, natural light and couples who are up for an adventure. We capture stolen glances, lovers, friends and really good dance floors.
Meet us over some good coffee, tell us about yourselves and what made you choose each other as your forever.
We genuinely think marriage is the best thing ever and its pretty damn cool we get to relive those feelings through each wedding we photograph.
We are here to dive in deep and tell a story that is uniquely yours.
We were lucky enough to be a part of a an inner City Auckland shoot for New Zealand Designer Hera Couture, the brain child of the lovely Katie Yeung.
Katie is phenomenally talented and designs beautiful intricate wedding gowns for women across the world. In a industry full of fast fashion her dedication to fit and craftsmanship is a refreshing change and something we wish more people understood the importance of.
This quick (slightly controversial) guide to wedding planning is here to help you make sense of it all because my darling brides, wedding planning is a long process but its so worth it in the end! Read up on my biggest wedding regrest and why I say don't have a DIY wedding.
We sat down with Renee to chat florals, upcoming trends and how to not be a pain in the arse client…

On how they met....

I’ve rounded up the wedding planning apps, websites and resources no bride can live without. This list is designed to get you started towards a more organised big day some you will know others you may not!
A checklist of wedding preparation and things to remember. I found that so many blog were full of things that didn't really apply to this side of the world so I've left out all of the what i call "Americanisums" and made it a little more Antipodean.

Carefully curated and not a taffeta skirt in site Shed 10 was transformed into a Pinterest Wedding Dream scape for the less traditional bride.
We were lucky enough to have some serious foodie recommendations to Melbourne, included here is a list of highly recommended must vist’s as well as a few you likely havent hear of.
“Wow, these are so amazing.

“I called up these two for an engagement session last minute and was blown away by the whole experience we received!
They provided clear communication throughout the whole process, worked with our crazy schedule and were willing to drive to meet us at our remote location. Day of, Jesse took all of my scattered ideas and ran with it, and his shots turned out even better than I had imagined. He spent a little extra time helping us to get over our camera shyness and by the end of the shoot we both felt so at ease and confident in front of the camera. We are looking forward to booking these guys again soon for our wedding!”

“Jessie and I met through a styled shoot earlier this year, and have done many more since this.
Their imagery is truly something and I feel they capture all the moments of your story so well.
Moody yet candid photography - is a must for your big day. Super talented Duo that will make you feel at ease.
Thank you for making my florals look even more amazing!”
Renee Bell – Florist
“Oh my God, I’m crying in Public (crying emoji) so many beautiful shots Jesse!

“Jesse and Jessie are incredible photographers, whose creativity and fun really shows through their work.
We spent an afternoon with them exploring the west coast of Auckland while getting some photos for a music project. They made us feel comfortable and relaxed, and the afternoon felt more like an adventure than a photo shoot! And we were blown away by the quality of their photos. We'd highly recommend Jesse and Jessie to anyone looking for professional, creative and fun photos! They are genuinely both amazing people, and we're so glad we met them.”
