Hi I'm Amy....
I love people and I love photography - its as simple as that!
Working with natural light and utilising composition and colour is something I've been practicing passionately for as long as I can remember. For the past 8 years I've travelled the world and been obsessed with photographing everything that catches my eye; from the way a window frames a scene outside to how the rain drips onto a puddle.
I've found that nothing brings more joy than capturing a raw, natural unspoilt moment between people interacting; Capturing a new husband tucking a wisp of hair behind his new brides ear, friends laughing at an age old inside joke together or the look of admiration a little girl gives her mumma who reaches to pick her up.
These moments are priceless and with the crazy fast pace of life, this is what I've committed to capturing for people - special moments to keep forever.
Growing up with five older brothers and two of which who're professional photographers, there was always a camera to hand in our household. Watching them go out and travel the world gave me my sense of wanderlust from an early age and as soon as I was able, I followed suit to explore the world, snapping anything I saw.
I recently returned back to my hometown in North Devon, England after spending a year living and exploring New Zealand, where my (now) fiancé, Nick, and I settled in the mountainous, lake-side paradise that is Queenstown.
After years of shooting friends, families and weddings, it was here that I decided to take the leap and create Amy Chapple Photography, and what a journey its been! Whist in New Zealand I shot weddings, events, families, maternity, newborn, for beautiful businesses and for people holidaying in the most epic locations.
Having worked in the wedding industry for most of my working life, and realising there is nothing that sparks my soul more than documenting two souls in love, becoming a Wedding Photographer has been the most natural and beautiful transition possible.
January 2020, Nick proposed on top of our favourite mountain, overlooking Queenstown.
The best day EVER!
I'm beyond excited get to know you and to hear your proposal stories and just capture some magic on your big day!
