Taupo and Central North Island Wedding Videos and Photos

Hello, thanks for visiting and congratulations on your engagement. My name is Andrew Whyte and I have photographed weddings for 11 years in New Zealand under my Whyte Weddings brand earning a great reputation. I became passionate about documentary film making many years ago and I now focus on both wedding videography and photography with an emphasis on video and also capturing the most important still images if you choose not to hire a seperate photographer.

My style is reportage, meaning, I cover the important elements of your day so you will remember them and the people involved forever more. Reportage style is perfect for wedding day shoots as there is little directing involved and is less intrusive. Your ceremony and speeches will be fully presented and I will make you a shorter video to share on Vimeo with music and scenes from your day.

I shoot with multiple cameras and sound devices to capture the emotions from different angles and I am innovative, sometimes I give the kids and guests a selfie stick to get some fun footage you can see in my sample. I also believe in being un-intrusive because I don't want to turn your wedding day into a Wellywood movie set. I apply many days of comprehensive editing resulting in videos that are interesting and compelling memories. If you choose not to hire an additional photographer I can combine some still photography with video.

I would like to thank Sofi and Rory for letting me showcase their wedding at the beautiful Tongariro Lodge


Price for Wedding Day Coverage... from the bride's house till the first dance.

  • You will get FULL edited coverage of the entire ceremony and the speeches filmed with multiple cameras from different angles and a very special short film of your day. An example of this is below. Videos are presented to you in HD on a USB stick. For streaming, I can post the highlights video on the professional online platform called Vimeo with the privacy settings of your choice.

  • I prefer within 1.5 hours drive of Taupo including Rotorua, South Waikato, Hawkes Bay and Tongariro National Park. I go to one getting ready location which is usually the bride's house.

  • Video only $1,400 plus travel and includes music rights (see note below). $300 booking deposit secures your day.

  • Video and photos combo $1,950 if you wish to combine video and photography (see the note below). $300 booking deposit secures your day.

DVD's can be ordered for $60 for the first and $40 thereafter, plus postage (see note below). BluRay $80 and $60. Additional USB sticks $40 each plus postage.

Photography Combo Package... fron the brides house till the first dance.

My wedding coverage that combines photography has an emphasis on video with some important group and portraits of you and your bridal party. I have found the most enjoyed images at weddings are the bridal party formals and the family photos. There is a recent tendency to totally overkill the photography at a wedding with clicks and flashes not to mention cameras in your face all day. For the ceremony and speeches video creates the best memories to be enjoyed and is far more discrete. By combining photography I can use my extensive experience to direct your family photos, portraits and your bridal party formal photos to get those shots that are going to go in a frame. If you choose not to hire an additional photographer and desire a less intrusive, affordable, multi media coverage of your wedding then go for this. To put it simply, I have my video camera on a tripod and a good DSLR with a professional portrait lens on my shoulder, I use both to best advantages when needed. I will also include some photos in the video presentation and make the edited files available to you on the USB stick. Examples of my years of my Wedding Photography can be viewed here


What about music in videos? Most current pop songs are copyright and we can't legally use and share them online, however, we can use part of them if they are your walk in music and party music played over a speaker. For the highlights video, I use the Song Freedom music library which has lots of great wedding songs and the cost of the music is included in your wedding package. We will work through this together to get the right music during the editing process.


Based on car travel at $50c per km return from my central Taupo Base. For example, Rotorua would be $80 and Napier $134


Many videographers do not supply DVD disks as they are now old low-resolution technology and look ghastly on the new HD and especially UHD Televisions. However other than files on a USB stick, there is only one other tangible alternative being BluRay. DVD's are still widely used and I can supply them for your wedding BUT you must be aware that compared to the HD files they are not of great picture quality on HD Television sets. Having said that I am able to supply them so they don't stretch the picture on wide-screen tvs They come with a printed cover and disk. I can also supply BluRay Disks.
