About SNAP! Wedding Photography

SNAP! Wedding Photography is a Christchurch based wedding photography company run by husband and wife team, Sarah and Anthony Turnham.  SNAP! Wedding Photography stands for photographic excellence for the discerning couple that know they want their wedding day captured at it’s best, with artistry, imagination whilst ensuring they and their guests have a great time along the way, safe in the hands of a highly acclaimed professional.

After starting SNAP! Photography as a broadly based photographic solution for commercial photography, architectural photography as well as weddings, the high demand for Anthony’s Wedding Photography style meant that SNAP! Wedding Photography soon became established in its own right, and although Anthony is sought out for commercial shoots throughout the year through the SNAP! Photography brand, he turns down this work through the summer to follow his passion of delivering beautiful wedding photographs his wedding clients.

SNAP! Wedding Photography focuses on delivering exceptional full day wedding photography coverage.  Not only do we aim to give our couples memories they will treasure forever but we want them to have a wonderful experience too.  Anthony brings his energy and enthusiasm to the wedding day and the couples always rave about how much fun they’ve had on the day.

SNAP! Wedding Photography limits the number of bookings taken on in any year to just 20 to ensure that each and every couple get the care and attention they deserve through the whole process.  Couples are treated to in person viewings of engagement shoot potos and their album design.  This personal touch goes a long way and allows us to personalise the service and ensure the couples recieve photographic artwork and memories they will enjoy with lifelong pride.


Anthony is seen more as an artist with a camera than just a photographer.  Anthony strives to take his images to the next level.  Along with capturing the authentic moments that tell the story of the wedding day Anthony uses his creative vision to craft pieces of art for his clients.  This ability was recently recognised when he won gold, silver, and bronze in both Wedding photography categories at the much coveted Epson Iris Awards and was nominated Creative Wedding Photographer of the Year 2014 finalist.

At SNAP! Wedding Photography we believe that when you’re investing in your wedding day and having it captured at it’s best, then you deserve to have it remembered and enjoyed for years to come.  Having a wedding album that allows you to pick up, share and enjoy your wedding day story over and over again is a must.  We work with industry leader Queensberry to give you access to the very best wedding album.

We approach the wedding day with two main goals, to tell the story through beautiful wedding photography, and to craft photographic works of art worthy of hanging on your wall.  Both goals ultimately converge to combine in the ultimate showcase of the day, your wedding album.

We achieve our relaxed, fun and creative imagery through building great bonds with our couples and letting their true character shine through.  Some of the day is photographed in a photojournalistic (documentative) style and some is more directed to ensure we get you the results you’ll love.  You can find out more about the way we photographically cover the wedding day here (section coming soon).
