My goal to visit New Zealand started the moment I saw The Lord of the Rings in 2001. (Yes, I fell prey to the Lord of the Rings world. I regret nothing.) Since then, it has been my goal to visit such a gorgeous country and explore it!

I am Kristin Smetona. I live in Orange County, California. I have been married for 7 years to my amazing husband Dustin. I have an adorable son named Eli. I have been honored to photograph weddings for over 10 years and I want to photograph your elopement!

Over the years, I have had the privilege of photographing shoots and weddings all over the world! France, Ireland, Switzerland, and Mexico are great examples! (The photo above is from Switzerland in 2014) I would love to get the chance to capture a couple in love in New Zealand! On top of mountain, on a cliff, in a forest, or (heck!) the Hobbiton set! 

So, if you are eloping in New Zealand around the end of November this year, here is the deal: 
You will get...

  • 4 hours of on-location photography coverage in New Zealand. Let's explore!
  • Hand-edited images
  • Online gallery with High-Res photos.
  • Reprint release (print the photos when and where you want)
  • Total $1500 NZD ($1100 USD)

I am looking for only one special couple to receive this deal!
