Hi! I’m Katrina.
Auckland Photographer, mum of three, yoga teacher and plant nut.
My professional photography expertise spans over 15 years; including portraits, studios, editorial, weddings, commercial photography, corporate business photography, musicians, lifestyle and event coverage. I was first officially recognised and awarded as 2010’s New Zealand Geographic Young photographer of the year and from here, my photography career followed many paths!
For most of my time with a camera in hand, I focused on wedding and portrait photography. This allowed me to travel all round the world and a good chunk of this time was spent capturing mountain top weddings and elopements in Queenstown.
These days, I am based out West Auckland amongst the rugged coastal landscape of Bethells Beach which serves as fantastic inspiration (and a handy location for beach portrait sessions!).
I like to keep my creative plate varied, focusing on elevating brands through commercial portraiture photography as well as capturing a small number of Auckland weddings, elopements and portrait photography sessions.
The beauty of having created imagery in many different environments and industries is a deep understanding of my style, I describe it balance between classic, documentary and emotive storytelling.
I love to work with natural light to create timeless, dreamy photography. This translates across both my commercial and branding images, as well as my wedding and portrait photography. My eye is always looking for authentic emotion and connection captured in a candid and relaxed “behind-the-scenes” way.
Talk to me about your photography needs; your commercial project, your love, your family – I look forward to meeting you and creating imagery together!

"CAPTURED THE BEAUTIFUL MOMENTS, NOTHING WAS FORCED"
I met Katrina over 10 years ago and was a fan of her work then. I was so fortunate to have her take our photos for a campaign. She was an absolute delight. She made us feel so comfortable and relaxed and the photographs were outstanding… I would definitely recommend Many Talents Media. Thank you
"WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND MTM TO ANYONE WANTING TO WORK WITH THE BEST"
Working with Katrina was inspiring, she’s so creative, and has so much talent for what she does. She’s down to earth and made the photo shoot for our campaign, easy and so much fun.

"WHEN WE FIRST MET MTM WE THOUGHT...LEGENDS!"
It’s been nearly a year since we booked MTM as our wedding photographers and I can safely say that time has in no way lessened our appreciation for her fabulous work.
Every step of the way she was warm, fun, insightful and incredibly generous with her time and energy.
There isn’t any way I can explain the level of chill that Katrina brought to the day with her personality and organisation.
The whole bridal party felt like we were just hanging out. Katrina kept us moving to all the spots we needed to be at while keeping it fun.
I am more than happy to recommend MTM to anyone

Attention to detail and commitment. Thanks so much
"ABLE TO CAPTURE MOMENTS SO NATURALLY AND BEAUTIFULLY "
Katrina is a pure genius with a camera!
She captured our engagement at Lake Wanaka and our wedding Day in Tasmania Australia!
The way Katrina captured our engagement and wedding was incredible and showed the true joy of the occasions. She is professional and so easy to work with! Making us feel very relaxed in front of the camera.
After our stunning engagement photos, Katrina was the only person we wanted to capture our wedding and as a result she made it a fun experience.
Katrina has such a gift with the camera!

"THEIR COMMUNICATION IS EXCELLENT, YOU COULD NOT ASK FOR NICER PEOPLE TO DEAL WITH"
We had Katrina around to take newborn photos of our 2-weeks old son, she was incredible!
Kind, patient and made the whole process so enjoyable. We are over the moon with the end product. We wanted natural photos of our little man in his own home, nothing too staged or posed and that is exactly what we got!
Thank you so much Many Talents Media for the memories you have captured for us, we could not be happier and look forward to using you guys again!”Alana
"MORE THAN JUST PHOTOS"
We had one of the wettest days in March for our wedding and Katrina’s ability to enter into the joy of the occasion helped us to relax and seize the day.
She is a true artist.
Many Talents Media are wonderful. They are genuine, passionate and talented. To add to the mix they’re down to earth which makes them fun to be around. The times I’ve worked with the team at Many Talents Media, I have come away feeling edified about my creative projects and excited about the future. They’ll be your biggest fans and get behind your endeavours 100%.
