“You completely exceeded our expectations! You are an absolute gem – for anyone who is looking for a photographer or videographer we fully fully recommend Michele and Wilburn Productions!! Lots of love Wilburn Productions – Mr and Mrs Pantling xxxxxxxx”
I am really happy to be living back in New Zealand and have enjoyed many beautiful weddings and occasions here. Based in Tauranga in the Bay of Plenty this season I am providing wedding video and wedding photography services in and around the Bay of Plenty.
I love photographing families and am available for any variety of commercial requirements and projects. I will be updating this website over the next few weeks at Wilburn-productions.com to include a full spectrum of my productions.Wilburn Productions has evolved over many years, since I began filming healthy lifestyle and fitness videos in the UK and Europe where I was based for thirty years. My last ten years has involved two year wedding photography and video contract before returning to NZ was for a leading European Airline for destination weddings in resort in Zakynthos, in the Greek islands.
Every Wedding Day has it’s own unique emotion!
I capture the spirit of your special day with a mixture of candid photography and beautifully posed mementos. My last couple of seasons in Europe I was the destination photographer for a leading European airline in a fabulous Greek island resort. Often that means a wedding a day! And never having met my couples in advance! You simply have to be good at your job! Making sure each bride and groom have the day they have dreamed of, and organizing and coordinating the photos and events so that all guests also feel included and have a great time is my specialty.
“Thank you, thank you, thank you. You were the best photographer we could have asked for. Your passion for what you do really shows in your photographs. I still cry at our wedding photos, they just capture every moment of our special day and it really is overwhelming how much you captured!! Not only that but your slide-shows are INCREDIBLE!”
I have found the best way as a wedding photographer and videographer to capture your Big Day is with a balance of reportage coverage, catching the moment as it happens, along with organized yet relaxed posed photography – this makes for the very best collection of wedding photography and video to treasure forever.
