PAUL & KATIE
We can't give Az a good enough review. The photos are unique so well shot and creative and Az was so friendly, polite and efficient on the day - we couldn't have asked for a better photographer!
POLI & JON
I stumbled across Lemontree photography when I was researching our wedding venue, and after a few minutes of scrolling through Az’s work, I knew he was the photographer for us. Jon and I met Az for a consultation and had the opportunity to look through some of his photo albums. Leaving that meeting we both knew that Az was the photographer for us – so if you are thinking about having him capture your day – don’t event doubt it! Book him straight away!
In the months leading up to the wedding we found it really easy to communicate with Az, any questions we had he replied to promptly and he was really accommodating meeting us a week before the wedding to scope out the reception venue and to talk through photography ideas in our tipis.
The day before the wedding Az captured my mehndi night was so much fun and definitely got us into the spirit for the wedding the following day. On our wedding day, Jon had Nathan (our second photographer) capture him and the boys getting ready – one of the things we love is how complimentary Nathan and Az’s photography is – a perfect match. I think my favourite thing about Az (and all out wedding guests agreed) was his calming nature and the way he was non-intrusive and able to capture lots of beautiful candid moments.
Jon and I love re-living our wedding day though his photography. He was the perfect part of our wedding and we recommend him highly.
LAURA & ADAM
We chose Az (Lemontree Photography) as our wedding photographer because we had seen the photos he took at my sister in law’s wedding and we knew the work product would be excellent. What we didn’t realise was what a pleasure Az would be to work with. From the first communication right through to delivery of our photos, everything was easy and no fuss. Az came to meet us at our wedding venue a few weeks before to get to know us and understand the venue, he replied to every email promptly and helpfully and, most importantly, his presence at the wedding was calm, professional, fun and stress free! As for the photos, Az has a well honed talent and eye that has captured so many special moments from our wedding day and every time we look through our photos we see something different! Thank you Az, you were a first class photographer and we couldn’t have asked for more. We will certainly recommend you in future. Best wishes, Laura and Adam.
NATHAN & AMAILIE
As a wedding photographer myself, Az was under pressure to perform to my fussy standards. He performed well and I would recommend this man to anyone. People like myself strive for imaginative perfection when for Az it just seems to effortlessly glide through to his creative mind. It was a learning Journey for me to be photographed and I’m glad that we chose Az, we have a superb collection of memories to treasure for life.
CHARLOTTE AND MARTIN
Lemontree Photography was recommended to us by a close friend that attended a wedding where Az had been the photographer, she really was so complimentary & when we saw the pictures from the wedding we could see why. When we came to planning our wedding, we met Az & we knew instantly that he was what we were looking for in a photographer, we felt so comfortable with him. We then met Az before our wedding at our venue at The Eastclose hotel in Christchurch where we familiarised ourselves with the venue & got to know Az better. Then on our special day, we really could not have asked for more. Sam & Az were a special part of our day. They were unintrusive but captured every element of the day perfectly. Even in the often talked about tiresome group shots, we were content as Az & Sam were keeping everyone happy. Since the wedding, so many of our guests have commented on how lovely our photographers were. Just a few days ago our photographs were available for viewing & I have to say that we were absolutely overwhelmed with the stunning moments that were captured. If you not only want the most perfect photographs but also two additional guests for the day, we most highly recommend Lemontree.
DENISE & PETER
From the minute we started to plan our day, we realised that the memories captured by our photographer were really important to us and we didn’t want a run of the mill album full of group shots and standard poses. We wanted something creative and unusual and we certainly found that in Az! We scoured the internet for many hours flicking through gallery after gallery, but as soon as we came across Lemontree Photography we knew instantly that this was who we wanted to capture our big day for us and we were fortunate enough that Az was still available. Az was highly professional from the start both in appearance and manner and always responded to queries promptly. He was incredibly friendly and polite every time we met. On the day lots of our guests commented how friendly he was and how they barely noticed him there, yet he has captured some amazing photos of them all! We were also really impressed with the choice of second shooter for the day, as it was apparent Az had ensured that the individual complemented his own style and you really can’t tell who has taken what! They worked really well as a team and both also worked exceptionally well with our videographer. This was something we had been told is sometimes traumatic! As a result, both have produced amazing end products without detriment to the other. The images captured really tell the story of the day including all the little details, not just the people. We are going to find it a real struggle to pick out the best ones for an album as they are all so fabulous! We would thoroughly recommend Az/Lemontree Photography to anyone who asks!
ALEX & MATT
We would definitely recommend Az, we love the photographs from our wedding, and had lots of comments from guests about how friendly and accommodating he was throughout the day. Whether it is the formal posed shots or relaxed friendly images, they are all beautiful. We are so glad that Az was our wedding photographer and would recommend him to anyone.
