David Garratt is the owner and creative person behind Von Photography.
He is a born and bred Wellingtonian.
Photography has been a passion of his for many years but he decided about five years ago to ramp up the skill level and put himself out there as a photographer. It has been an enjoyable and sometimes wild ride since then.
He has photographed many of the big names in New Zealand music and has been a part of the Homegrown and Ladeda music festivals for a number of years. More recently David has found himself involved in the Wellington fashion industry including photographing the catwalk shows at this years Wellington Fashion Week, the Miss Universe NZ competition and a number of smaller competitions and fashion events. Through this involvement he has built up a good network of creative people working in all facets of the fashion, film, music, and creative arts industries in NZ.
Aside from photography, he also has interests in web design, is a regular at his local gym (going so far as to teach group fitness classes), and enjoys social media networking, and anything to do with the buying, selling, and renovating of real estate.
As an extrovert, David has heaps of energy, an easy going style and a people focus that makes working with him fun and painless. His aim is to capture the joy and special moments in his wedding photos, providing a good mix of both informal and formal wedding portraits and images in his wedding photography packages.
If you are looking for an affordable Wellington photographer for your wedding or event, or want some fun and flirty glamour portrait photos taken by someone that has flair, personality, a keen eye and a listening ear, then David is the person to contact.
