Who we are
Ray & Lynette Salisbury have been married for 23 years and believe marriage is one of the cornerstones of our society. Weddings should be celebrated passionately & recorded for the future.
Ray is a qualified Graphic Designer, who studied photography & video at AUT. He delights in 'making stuff look good' in any visual capacity. His design flair & attention to detail are evident in all the work he produces. . Being a musician, Ray knows a bit about audio recording. He is also a seasoned tramper and has a sweet tooth.
Lynette is the ultimate personal assistant, who keeps everything running like clockwork and keeps Ray organised. Her only weakness is her affection for stray cats.
They use professional camera & audio gear to ensure your wedding photos and videos are crafted to an exceptional standard. We usually hire an additional videographer to get extra footage of the ceremony. Using a drone to capture spectacular aerial views of your wedding locations adds huge production value to your videos... great for those big, cinematic establishing shots.
Ray brings the best of his 40+ years as a landscape photographer into your wedding day. His best images are published in magazines, books and calendars. He is the author of three books, and has written more than 150 songs. In short, he was born to create stuff!
If you're looking for an experienced operator, Ray has filmed over 50 weddings, worked for local television, and teaches photography on a range of educational platforms on-line. Give him a call!

Bryan & Nicola | Wellington:
"The videoing of our wedding was professionally done, with clever moving footage, and from two different angles. Ray came to the rehearsal also and was very clear with his communication and understood what we wanted. We loved his attention to detail. The promptness was much appreciated. We had the highlights within two weeks and a full video in a month. We were even able to look at things on-line while we were on honeymoon!"
Chalisa & John | Nelson:
"Ray did a fantastic job for our big day! If there are 10 stars, l would give him and his wife those. He noticed those little details and spontaneously added them into our video which made it so special. Thank you very much Ray & Lynette."
Tamsyn & David | Motueka:
"I could not have asked for someone more expert to navigate recording our ceremony in the Ngarua Caves. With Ray's experience, he used every tool under his belt to capture the beauty of our wedding, taking up the challenge of shooting a video inside a cave! I highly recommend Ray for exceptional service even in extraordinary circumstances."
