About Sunshine Weddings

Sunshine is…

a husband and wife elopement wedding photography and film team. We LOVE, LOVE, LOVE elopement weddings working with just a couple. So that’s what we do! Sunshine weddings are intimate, joyous ceremonies set in the rugged alpine beauty of Queenstown.

We’ve been a part of the local Queenstown wedding industry for more than 10 years starting with film and photography and  evolving to include elopement wedding planning along the way. We’re the only specialist all-in-one photography, film and planning company in the region. People choose to elope for all sorts of reasons and our goal is to help make your experience personal, fun and stree-free.


Scott (our Aussie) is an ex-professional sky-diver turned film-maker, editor, photographer and a bit of a tech geek. He’s not afraid of a cheeky pint and is an exceptional cook who’s been known to spend a couple of days cooking braised beef cheeks. Seriously! Scott’s a natural at helping people relax and enjoy themselves, whether it’s while throwing them out of a plane, or being photographed on their wedding day.


Melissa (our Kiwi) first picked up a camera as part of a graphic design degree many years ago and hasn’t stopped doing both since! After several years working in publishing she now shoots weddings, families and our family (with three dogs and a five year old). She is a working artist and designer and is the one on the end of every Sunshine email. Together with Scott they also run the family gallery in Riverton.
