Meet Jodi La Grouw

At LUSH Wedding Photography I shoot many weddings in and around Coromandel Peninsula and are happy to go beyond.

There are absolutely no second chances at wedding photos, so why take the risk of average results that do not invoke the emotions they were trying to capture, and fall short of your hopes. Wedding albums are a treasure you will admire together for the rest of your lives, and as you know, so much planning and organisation is put into a fantastic wedding. It is vital to ensure that the lasting memories of your special day are complimented with the perfect photographs that you deserve.

I can assure you with total confidence, that I will achieve supreme results, which are presented with style and design ability.

The Coromandel Peninsula, with its pristine beaches, native forests and laid-back vibe, is one of New Zealand’s most popular and best-loved destinations. The Coromandel Peninsula is a short drive from some of New Zealand’s largest cities and with a relaxed atmosphere offers the perfect location to hold your wedding. At LUSH photography I listen to your requirements and can suggest many locations to suit your needs with our local knowledge.

I hold a diploma in two dimensional Art & Design, as well as an Advanced Diploma In Fine Arts. I have been a passionate photographer my entire life, spending a majority of it on the Coromandel Peninsula, so I have excellent local knowledge. This, combined with an eye for detail, dedication to achieving immaculate results, flexibility to ensure your wishes are catered for, and willingness to go the extra mile for my clients, all shine through in the finished product. My technique is professional and non-invasive. No corners are cut and I use top of the line Canon (analogue and digital) equipment to capture perfect results.

I love the excitement, the details and the story behind a wedding day event! Having recently had the pleasure of getting married, I understand completely, and relate well to what it feels like to be a bride on her big day. This enables me to remain aware of the day from your perspective. I can relate to the cost of a wedding which often exceeds expectations and budgets, so I have designed a range of package options to cater for a variety of requirements, as well as customising to your specific needs.

Who We are.
