Keryn Sweeney

Keryn Sweeney, an Auckland-based wedding and editorial photographer, has carved a niche for herself in the world of visual storytelling.

With a style that seamlessly blends documentary and editorial approaches, Keryn has a unique talent for capturing moments and weaving them into captivating narratives. Her primary goal is to ensure that couples and their guests feel at ease behind the camera, resulting in not just incredible portraits but also truly candid moments that leave a lasting impact.

One distinguishing feature of Keryn’s work is her passion for shooting on film. She includes film packages in her offerings, cherishing these images as her favourites from each event. In fact, she has now extended her services to provide film-only packages, emphasising the timeless and authentic quality that film photography brings to her work.

Keryn’s dedication to her craft has taken her on a journey across the globe, with weddings and projects in Australia, Japan, Paris, Copenhagen, Bali, Mexico, and New York. Beyond capturing the main event, Keryn relishes the opportunity to cover the days surrounding the wedding – from welcome drinks to post-wedding brunches. This approach allows her to forge connections not only with the couple but also with their guests, transforming strangers into old friends by the end of the weekend.

One of Keryn’s past couples expressed their appreciation, “she captures not just incredible portraits and details, but the truly candid moments you didn’t know you needed.”.

Beyond her professional life, Keryn shares her personal journey as a partner to Jamie and a mother of two lively girls. Photography is not just a job for her; it’s a significant part of her life both at home and at work. Her background in fashion photography informs her work, allowing her to approach each environment with a relaxed and informal manner, fostering spontaneous moments that result in beautiful and authentic images.

Looking ahead, Keryn’s bookings for 2024 and 2025 are now open. With a passion for capturing the raw beauty of each couple on their special day, Keryn Sweeney continues to make her mark in the world of wedding and editorial photography.
