GENERAL

Can I license pre-existing photography for editorial or commercial use?
Yes of course! Please get in contact so we can discuss what I have available and licensing fees.

What camera do you use?
My current set up is as below:
Nikon D750
Nikon D610
Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 24-70mm f/2.8 ED - My go to lens for nearly everything!
Nikon NIKKOR Z 50mm f/1.8 - Great portrait lens.
Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 14–24mm f/2.8G ED - Mostly used for my Real Estate Photography, but crack it out now and then for some Astro Photography.

I’m coming to New Zealand. Where should I visit?
Blog post of my favourite spots in the making. Come back soon!

Can I assist for you?
I’m not currently looking for an assistant and often manage shoots by myself or with my husband and friends. However, next year I will be looking at taking on one-off assistants, so keep an eye out on my Instagram for updates.

How long have you been a photographer?
Nearly 10 years!

How do I become a full time photographer like you?
Shoot shoot shoot! In my 10 years experience, I have only been a full time professional photographer for half of that. They say it takes 10,000 hours doing something to become an expert in it. It’s not going to happen overnight (unless you go viral, then high bloody five). One of the best things I did was assist for other successful photographers. It gave me a really useful insight into different genres of photography while picking up the best tips and tricks.

Why is the ocean such a central theme to your work?
Living in New Zealand has given me a very natural affinity for the ocean. I spend a lot of my life in and around it, so it’s easy to be inspired by it. It’s beautiful, yet terrifying and interacts with light in the coolest way.

Can I buy your presets?
Not yet…

WEDDINGS

How do I book you?
Firstly all you need to do is pop through an email with your wedding date and wedding location so I can ensure I am available for your special day. Then a signed contract and 20% deposit is all that’s needed to lock it in!

I only take a select number of wedding bookings per season now, so get in early to secure your date!

Do you offer a discount for off season and week day wedding photography?
I sure do. Drop me an email with your wedding date and I can come back to you with my package pricing.

PRINTS

I want a photo that I can’t see on your site, how do I order it?
Please email hello@lolaphotography.co.nz including a screenshot or link of the photo you are interested in and the potential size and materials you are after. I will either add it to the site or create a custom order special just for you!

Why is your delivery period so long?
All my prints are made to order. I like to see every print to ensure it’s up to standard, give it a signature and wrap it up nice and special. If you live in Auckland and need your print a little more urgently, let me know and I’ll see what I can do!

How do I care for my print?
All prints are printed on a weighty fine art stock. It’s very porous and somewhat delicate so it can mark and scratch easily. I recommend leaving your print in it’s packaging and taking it to your framer as it is. If you simply must take a peak, make sure you have clean hands and open your package in a dry, spacious indoor area away from food and liquids.

What framers do you recommend for your prints?
My go to is Factory Frames. (For those of you that are Auckland, NZ based)

When is your Christmas order cut off date?
My printing studio can get crazy busy leading up to Christmas, so I highly recommend you get your print orders in by the 6th December to allow for printing and postage time.

Can I commission an art piece?
Most definitely. Get in touch to let me know what you have in mind. Usually my clients will just send me off to their favourite place in NZ (or the world) and see what I come up with!
