About Kenrick Rhys

Kenrick Rhys is a photographer.
He is also my husband and my best friend!

Behind that burly beard, Kenrick is a crazy romantic and a big softy at heart. What began as a documentation of our travels around the globe grew into a passion to photograph people and those intimate moments on one of life’s biggest occasions, their wedding day.

Kenrick has this zest for life that’s contagious. He is always on the hunt for the next adventure. It makes complete sense to me that he has found himself photographing people. Kenrick adapts to situations and has a genuine, approachable manner.

If you do choose Kenrick as your photographer, just between you and I, you’re also signing up for a friend. He will put you and your husband at ease right away, as well as your guests. Basically you can relax, knowing that all those details, laughs and moments will be captured.

We live near Tauranga, in the sunny Bay of Plenty with our cat Wiz. We enjoy sitting in cafes together, and getting out and enjoying our stunning country we call home, New Zealand.

My Style


After the rush and frenzy of the morning, with all the preparations and nerves out of the way.  The ceremony over, the vows said, the family photos taken.  You walk hand in hand with your husband, he looks up at you and looks into your eyes, leans in and kisses you. He whispers softly about how he felt when he saw you for the first time as you walked down the aisle. Together in that moment you feel as though the world is a new place, full of adventure and excitement. Somewhere near, out of earshot, is a photographer. Quietly capturing that walk together, the look, that kiss, the joy you feel in that moment.

Real people, real moments.  That is my style, that is the story I tell.  Your story.

A wedding day is not normal day, no 9 till 5 occasion. Some start early before the sun is up and go into the wee hours of the morning. Some are short and intimate.

That single tear running down your cheek as you open a card from your husband to be, or the moment your father sees you in your wedding dress looking stunning and can’t contain his smile.

I’d love to hear what you have planned for your wedding day, get in contact and I can send you full info pdf.
I do like travel, do me a favour and plan your wedding in a far away place.

What they have to say

“We just want to say a big THANK YOU to you Kenrick for your amazing enthusiasm, professionalism, creativity and fun you bought to our special day. You reflected all the emotion experienced (and there was a lot) on the day through your incredible photos.”  – Adam and Victoria
“What a party we had with Kenrick. It was another celebration in itself to have our photos taken by this creative genius. The evidence is in the photos. I cried when I saw them; they captured Ronny and I perfectly. We so wanted something different, something outstanding, something wondrous. What we got surpassed our expectations. I didn’t have to worry about a thing, Kenrick had it sorted. Clare xx”
“Thank you so much for capturing our day. It was so exciting to come home after a long shift and be able to relive our special day. Fabulous job, I am just thrilled with the photos you really captured every moment.” – Sarah Atherfold
