Hello there! We are Jim and Vicky, a husband and wife team based amongst the mountains and lakes of New Zealand.

It's magical to meet you,

We’re a couple of old snowboard bums who for a decade traveled the world instructing and coaching. Eventually we settled down to build ourselves a nest and grow ourselves a little family, Charli, Toby and old Moosedog.

About 7 years ago we started shooting weddings, mostly by chance, but we soon realised we found our calling. Here was an opportunity to do what we love, in a way that was honest to us and our passions.

Over the years we’ve built a solid worldwide reputation for our emotive and distinctive imagery, making things relaxed and easy for our couples and damn good Kiwi service. And to be honest we're pretty proud of that.

But please don’t just take our word for it, below you'll find a few words from a few of our couples and their experiences working alongside us.

If you want to know more about how we work and what we do, please flick us a message using the box to the right.


Andrea and Jason

Queenstown Wedding

I had been following Jim’s work on Instagram for a while and when we got engaged; his photos actually helped us decide that we wanted to get married in Queenstown. We had always known that we wanted to book Jim as our wedding photographer as his work is best we’ve seen by far! On the day, Jim always made sure we had a great time and felt at ease when we were up in the mountain during our heli shoot. Our photos turned out amazingly beautiful as he truly captured our best memories that we will cherish forever. Thanks again Jim & Vicky! Highly recommend these guys!

Juliea and Gerard

Arrowtown Wedding

I don't think there are really words to describe how we feel, it was beyond anything we could of imagined. You had us both in tears. Everything about them is completely amazing, you are out of this world Jim! My dad said "in 50 years I have never had such an emotional response to anything", I don't think I have ever seen him cry that much!

Thank you for capturing everything we and our family are, it is so special. From the first time I saw your photos on Instagram I knew you had to be our photographer, it was the only thing I was not willing to compromise on and it paid off.

Monica and Tim

Hawkes Bay Wedding

Before we had even locked in Pollard We Are for our wedding day Vicky went above and beyond to accommodate us. She has an incredibly genuine skill for customer service that made our whole experience easy, enjoyable and pleasantly memorable. Being at other ends of the country was no problem, communication flowed effortlessly and through Vicky’s great admin/organisation skills everything fell into place perfectly. Besides a Skype date with Jim, the first time we met him was the day before our wedding.

Jim felt like a part of our team straight away. He was relaxed, funny, knowledgeable and friendly. Pollard We Are exceeded our expectations in so many ways. We received our wedding photos only a few short weeks after the wedding. Jim’s storytelling skills through his photography left me speechless. It felt like we experienced the whole day all over again. He has an incredible ability to capture special moments that translate beautifully into images. We can’t recommend these guys highly enough and we are so so happy that both Jim and Vicky are a part of the memory of our amazing wedding day.

Absolute magic

Trudy and Paul

Glenorchy Wedding

Absolutely Amazing !!

We can't speak highly enough of Jim Pollard and his wonderful wife Vicky... Vicky dealt with all of our initial queries and the finer the details of the where when and how logistics. She was lovely. Nothing was too much trouble and there were many many emails back and forth. So patient. She went to such great lengths to make sure we were totally happy and satisfied with everything. Her organizational skills are absolutely first class. Then there's Jim. Wow!! Not only an amazing photographer, but a genuinely lovely guy. He was fantastic, funny, chatty, talented and a joy to have as a part of our special day. Paul and I hate being in front of a camera but he made it so very easy. Jim's work is just magical, he has this wonderful ability of capturing all of those special little moments between people.

His photographs are not only capturing special little moments but creating beautiful pieces of artwork in themselves. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts Jim and Vicky. We're so glad we found you and that you were part of our special day. You've created such beautiful memories for us, we love you guys.
